Meets the high energy needs of extra-small dogs with calorie levels targeted for their size

Provides skin and coat health with optimal levels of EPA and DHA

Delivers digestive support with highly digestible proteins and a blend of dietary fibers

Exclusive extra-small, highly palatable kibble 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.

My baby likes it!

My 5 1/2 pound Lulu has a sensitive tummy and didn't seem to like the Science Diet food she was on, so my veterinarian suggested this brand. She really likes it.

Great food, the best you can get

I’ve worked in a vet clinic for 20 years so have had access to many good foods, Royal Canin has been the absolute best hands down. The breeder and customer support is phenomenal, the worldwide reputation is unbeatable. The dogs love it, their waste is minimal. The starter or mother and baby food is genius, my 3 week old toy poodles are climbing in the dish to eat it. I can’t say enough good things, I recommend it to everyone I talk to!

Consistently fresh

We transitioned our puppy from the puppy formula to this formula in August. He loves it, the kibble is just the perfect size

Terrific balance of nutrients and my dogs love it!

I recently purchased the large bag of Roayl Canin on line at a considerable savings over the in store small bag. Absolutely love this product and my three (3) dogs love it even more. Perfect bit size for their little mouths and so crunchy and delicious they want more and more.

My puppies love this kibble

I have used Royal Canin Urinary SO feline in the past and my cat loved the taste. When I got my puppies last year I decided to try the X-small dry dog food. My dogs are tiny so the tiny morsels are easy for them to eat and they love the taste. So yummy in fact, that even my cat sneaks some every now and then. Also nice to know they are getting a high quality, nutritional meal.

The only food my maltese will eat!

I started buying Royal Canine about 7 years ago and my dog loves it! She is small and the pieces are just right for her. Her fur is beautiful and she is a nice weight. I highly recommend Royal Canin.

Great for adult small dogs under 8 lbs.

I made several changes in dog food for my 2 yorkipoo; Royal Canin is their favorite and I am so happy we bought it.
