I have used this on puppies that were recovering from Parvo, and an orphan litter. It was wonderful, easy to digest and pleasing to a recovering baby, or puppies with no mom. Wonderful product

For a Tired Mom

My miniature poodle girls are diligent moms and get extremely worn out in the first week or two after birth. This food is easy for them to eat quickly and get the nutrients/calories they need to produce enough milk. It also helps keep them hydrated. It does cause loose stool, so I recommend mixing it with a tblsp of puréed sweet potatoes. For the puppies, I start them with a bit of this at the first weaning feedings. The food’s aroma and taste makes them much more excited about eating from the dish. It also comes in smaller tray sizes and is sold at local Petsmart stores for a bit of a markup.

excellent to produce milk

I have found that this is the absolute only food to add to mothers diet to help her produce a good milk supply. I raise yorkies and chihuahuas and they are a breed who can sometimes have trouble producing enough milk. Adding a can of this per day to their normal diet ( royal canin mini adult and mini puppy dry free fed) boosts momma dogs milk production and she has no problems!!!! I always start feeding a can per day about 2 weeks prior to due date all the way untill babies are weaned. Babies love it too as their first food!

The best start your puppies could get.

This is the first real food I give to my puppies. I thin it down with Pedialite and evaporated goats milk so the pups can lap it up. They love it and their growth rate increases dramatically. I also mix the mousse with dry starter kibble to feed my pregnant or nursing mothers (starting on day 43 of pregnancy because I feed the HT42D from start of heat till day 42 of pregnancy).

A-Number 1 Product

I've been using this product for years, since it first came out. Now we can't live without it. It's been an answer to prayer. Easy to use, perfect size so nothing gets wasted, our puppies gobble it up & we know it's great stuff from all the research that Royal Canin does on their products. Thank you RC for a great product.

Great Product

I use this starter mousse to wean my puppy off the their mother. I mix a little in with the dry kibble and they go from nursing to dry kibble with in a week. I also use it on my other dogs that are not eating good or drinking enough water. Again I mix it with their dry kibble or a little in their water bowl and they love it!

Perfect for Starting Pups

I started using this canned appetite stimulator in the smashed mixture that I start feeding my German Shepherd puppies at 3 weeks old over a year ago. The canned food not only is packed with excellent nutrition for fast-growing puppies, but is also extremely tasty and encourages young pups to begin good, healthy eating habits. We also use it for our extremely finicky therapy dog Beck to keep him healthy. We buy it direct by the case as keep it on hand!
