SPECIALIZED KIBBLE: Palatable, adult x-small breed dry dog food has an exclusive kibble design adapted for miniature jaws

Your extra-small dog has big nutritional needs. Their boundless, playful energy needs a diet that can keep up with them. And since they have tiny jaws and miniature teeth, they need a kibble small enough to pick up and chew. Not only that, these petite pooches are pretty picky when it comes to the food they eat.

Royal Canin X-Small Adult dry dog food is targeted nutrition to support your mini dog’s playful nature and petite size. It’s formulated with adapted energy levels to meet the high energy needs of miniature and toy breed dogs. Ideal levels of EPA and DHA support healthy skin and a beautiful, shiny coat. Highly digestible proteins and precise levels of fibers help promote healthy digestion. This extra-small and highly palatable kibble is designed for tiny teeth and jaws, pleasing even the pickiest of eaters. Add a variety in texture with Royal Canin Adult Beauty wet dog food. And when your dog reaches their later years, there’s Royal Canin X-Small Adult 8+ and X-Small Aging 12+ to help keep them happy and healthy as they age.

Conveniently packaged!

I have been using this for almost two years. It must be very healthy. My senior Cairn began eating the Morkie’s food and he thrived on it!

Great nurishment in a tiny kibble.

I've been using Royal canin for 7 years adopted for female Chihuahuas and 5 years later I adopted sick boy, he was born with congenital defects. My vet told me he wouldn't make it. He's 2 years and 4 months old now, thanks to the vets my love and you're great dogfood! Thank you so much! We don't have much luck with photo shoots but here they are

Love that this dog food is X-small.

My Chihuahuas love this dog food and I just switched to the X-Small/X-Petite. I love the tiny bites for my dogs. I have 10 Chihuahuas and they all love it. I have already got my cousin buying this for her Chihuahua and have been telling other people I know to get this food for their small dogs. This is just the best!

Satisfied Furbaby

I have been feeding my 5 year old yorkie this food for about a year now, and I’m pleased with how small the kibble is for her and how much she loves to eat this food. It helps her coat to grow at a healthy rate and seems to keep her overall health in great condition.

Consistently healthy very small teacup poodles

My two teacup poodles have been on this food since they were each weaned. One is 10 years old and the other is almost 2 years old, and they are very healthy service dogs.
