Meets the high energy needs of extra-small puppies with key nutrients needed during their short, intense growth period

Supports developing immune systems with an exclusive blend of antioxidants and vitamins

Exclusive extra-small kibble designed for miniature and toy puppies with tiny jaws and picky appetites

Promotes optimal stool quality with a specifically tailored blend of fibers

Your extra-small puppy has some big nutritional needs. That’s because toy and miniature breed puppies grow over a shorter period of time at a more intense rate than any other size dog. They’re also pretty fussy when it comes to the food they eat—it’s important to find a wholesome puppy food they’ll love. Royal Canin has the diet for extra-small puppies down to a science, finding the exact balance of nutrients your tiny puppy needs to become one magnificent dog.

Royal Canin X-Small Puppy dry dog food is tailor-made for your mini pup’s healthy growth and development. It has all the proteins, minerals, and vitamins your new puppy needs to sustain the intense growth period that happens over the first 10 months of their life. An exclusive mix of antioxidants and minerals supports their developing immune systems and keeps their bodies growing strong. A small and tasty kibble designed for your pup’s smaller teeth and picky appetite also reduces the formation of tartar. And a tailored blend of fiber helps aid in digestion for optimal stool quality.

Best!! Growth!! Best flavors my dog loves it!

I have a 4 month Maltese puppy, we tried a lot of different food for him but somehow he loves royal canine . We try other bulk brains but those made him choke.. I'm sad that people don't think about small puppy but, royal canine is the best! Highly recommended

Perfect size for the small dogs with small mouths!

I tried this for the first time and I am glad I did because it is perfect for the tiny dog with the tiny mouth. Smaller more petite dogs cannot eat the larger food nuggets, so this is great!

Best food we could have found!

This food saved my dogs life. When I rescued my 12 year old chihuahua, she had no teeth, was 2.5 lbs, and wouldn't eat any foods. We tried canned foods which she doesn't like, and we couldn't find any dry dog food she liked. We finally tried this Royal Canin x-small puppy dry dog food, and a miracle happened; she loved it! She was able to swallow the small pieces easily, and she started gaining weight and perking up. Her coat became so shiny and she finally looked healthy. Now a year later she is still eating this food and doing better than ever!

Puppy loves it

My puppy likes the food and eats it with gusto. I’ll be switching to breed specific food with my next purchase.

Fussy New Momma loves this food.

My dog was not eating throughout her pregnancy but after she whelped puppies, I offered her some of this food. She devoured it. It is providing her the calories she needs to nurse puppies and had been very gentle on her digestive system.

my breed are not included Papillon

I'm looking to upgrade my girls food. I heard that Royal Canin was a brand to look at. It's hard to evaluate when you don't have all the data.
