Product Description

This Royal Canin formula is designed exclusively for pure breed Dachshunds over 10 months. The Dachshund’s signature physique demands superior bone and joint support to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Since the breed also has a tendency to gain weight, keeping the Dachshund at a healthy weight can also help to alleviate additional stress on their skeletal structure and joints. This is why it's important to feed a diet that is tailor-made for their specific needs.

Breed Specific Formulas

Every dog is unique. From the small, flat-faced Pug to the obesity-prone Labrador Retriever, Royal Canin Breed Health Nutrition is tailor-made to address the unique needs of pure breed dogs. These breed specific formulas benefit from the latest Royal Canin research on the selection of the best protein sources, unique nutrients and tailor-made kibbles.

Formulated for Dachshunds

Royal Canin's Dachshund Adult Dry Dog Food is designed exclusively for pure breed Dachshunds over 10 months.

Joint & bone support: Dachshunds have short limbs and vertebrae which are subjected to severe mechanical stresses. This exclusive formula helps support healthy bones and joints with an appropriate calcium and phosphorus content.

Muscle tone: Dachshund Adult Dry Dog Food helps maintain muscle tone with an appropriate protein content and L-Carnitine.

Stool & odor reduction: This formula helps reduce fecal smell and volume and support healthy digestion with highly digestible proteins, an appropriate fiber content and high-quality carbohydrate sources.

Exclusive Kibble

Dachshunds have a slightly arched muzzle and powerful canine teeth that fit together in a scissors bite. Dachshund Adult Dry Dog Food features kibble that's designed to make it easier for them to pick up and helps encourage chewing.

Why Pure Breed Dogs Need Tailored Nutrition

From their personalities to their distinctive physiologies, pure breed dogs have unique characteristics that make them sought-after and beloved companions. When choosing a formula, it's important to keep in mind the unique characteristics of your breed including:

Face and Jaw: All dogs fall into two basic jaw types: Brachycephalic or mesocephalic. Breeds with short, broad muzzles (like Bulldogs) are examples of a brachycephalic jaw. Breeds with a longer muzzle (like Labrador Retrievers) are examples of mesocephalic breeds. The jaw type, and even biting patterns can affect how a breed picks up kibble.

Skin Types: The skin's most important function is to serve as a barrier of protection-but not all breeds have the same skin type. From wrinkled and folded (which traps heat and moisture) to sensitive or water resistant, precise levels of key nutrients help to support a breed's unique skin health needs.

Distinctive Coats: There's more to a coat than meets the eye. From the color and texture to undercoats, each pure breed dog has a unique coat with unique needs.

Why Royal Canin?

Over time, Royal Canin has accumulated vast knowledge about cats and dogs that only extensive research, scientific study and tireless talks with pet professionals, veterinarians and owners can provide. That knowledge led them to develop precise nutrition for cats and dogs. Each Royal Canin formula is tailored to pets' size, age, lifestyle and breed and contains more than 50 perfectly balanced nutrients for the most effective diet possible.

Their focus on science puts pets at the heart of the formulation process, choosing only ingredients that optimize the food's nutritional content. Royal Canin also continues to invest heavily in new technology to ensure their quality and food safety systems remain state-of-the-art, so pets can continue to benefit from the latest in food health and nutrition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by my mini dachsund pup loves this food! my mini dachsund pup loves this food! I have tried other name brand foods, but he wouldn't eat all the time. He loves this food tho! February 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Royal Canin Dachsund Blend #28 I've had my dachshunds, Maggie & Freckles, on this food since they were just babies and they are almost 4 now. With the glucosamine & chondroitin, it helps them with their joints, and hopefully will help prevent back problems. Cheaper than Petco, and free shipping when I order 2 bags. January 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy food for my mini dachshund. I have used this food for my dog for several years. It keeps her healthy and a good weight. She eats twice a day and eats hungrily. My vet suggested she eat larger nuggets which I could only buy at the vet. She carried each one around the house and took a long time to eat them. She finally got tired of them plus I could not find that kind when out of town so I switched to Royal Canin for Dachshunds and I am satisfied and so is Chloe. December 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Royal Canin Rocks! I'm feeding my second Dachsie Royal Canin Dachshund food. Our first dog started on dachsie puppy food and then adult food. He never had a weight problem, he never had bad breath, he never passed gas and when he eliminated, there was not a lot there. Healthy dogs thrive on Royal Canin. December 5, 2015
