Features a nutritious, satisfying formula to keep a small dog feeling fuller, longer.

Proven kibble technology helps reduce the formation of tartar.

Size Health Nutrition Small dog food formulas are so much more than just a small kibble. Small dogs need more energy than big dogs, and they have a shorter and more intense growth period. Plus, they typically live longer than large dogs, and have a more finicky appetite. Royal Canin Small formulas are designed to meet the specific needs of small dogs throughout every stage of their life.

Ideal for my Corgi

My Pembroke Welsh Corgi is usually very active (high energy, and training/showing in AKC obedience trials), but when she took a year off while I was raising a new puppy, she gained 2 pounds. For a small framed corgi, that is a lot. I like to keep her lean, around 22-23lbs, and she was now 25lbs... The boutique food she was eating was over 500 calories per cup, so she was only allowed to eat a measly 1/3 cup of kibble twice a day. She would bile vomit on occasion from having an empty stomach, and I had to supplement with vitamins to make sure she was getting enough nutrients. My other pets had done very well on Royal Canin products, and after learning about the connection between boutique/grain free foods and DCM, I wanted to make sure she was on a well-tested diet. We decided to try the Small Breed Weight Care, because I like the tartar control benefits and the higher protein, because she is still active, even if she is prone to weight gain. She has been on it for about a month and the transition was seamless. She has firm, small, regular stools - which helps her glands, she has not needed to be expressed since being on this food. Her teeth don't collect tartar as quickly as before, and she has lost some weight. Best of all, she loves it and she gets to eat more food while still losing weight! That's a win-win for her. Her coat looks to be improving and her tear stains improved almost immediately. No more empty-stomach bile vomit. She also has plenty of energy, still. Happy with it!

All of my dogs love this food - even the active on

We have both Silky Terriers and Chihuahua's ranging from puppy age to seniors. We bought this food primarily for the Chihuahua's because, like me, they look at or smell food and they gain weight. You'd think that a weight care food, the dogs would stick their noses up at it but they don't. ALL of our dog prefer this food over even their breed specific kibble. They like their kibble and will eat it if that's all that's in front of them, but if we have both out, free feed style -- they will eat the weight care first before and then go for the Yorkie food (for the Silky's). They all probably eat at least half their diet in the weight care and none of the Silky's are under or over weight. The Chihuahua's, I can tell feel more satisfied because unlike other weight care foods, they can eat more of this rather than just 10 kibbles. I'm sure it's just in our heads, but one of our old Chihuahua rescues, who we've had for over 5 years and has struggled with weight, doesn't do anything but wait for her next meal and ask to be carried around everywhere... has recently started playing ball. We've fed this food for about 3-4 months now... So not sure if we've finally found the right food for her specifically where she feels better... or it has literally taken her 5 years to get to the right weight that lets her feel well enough to play more.

Good quality

I have been feeding this to our malti poo for 6 months and he was able to lose a half a pound. He loves it and eats all his food atnd every meal which isn’t something he used to do. His stomach is also able to handle this food and he doesn’t get an upset stomach at all.
