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.

Key Benefits

  • Designed for Dachshunds over 10 months
  • Appropriate calcium and phosphorus content for bone and joint health
  • L-Carnitine and an appropriate protein content to maintain muscle tone
  • Helps reduce fecal smell and volume and helps support good digestion with highly digestible proteins, an appropriate fiber content and high quality carbohydrate sources
  • Kibble designed to make it easier for the breed to pick up and to encourage chewing

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are Royal Canin diets preserved?

All of our dry diets are preserved naturally with mixed tocopherols, citric acid, and rosemary extract. Our canned diets are naturally preserved and sterilized during the cooking and canning process.

Where do the ingredients in Royal Canin diets come from?

We select our ingredients based on multiple factors, including the supplier’s compliance with our quality and food safety requirements, consistent availability, and on the nutrients required to meet the dietary needs of the pet.

Royal Canin is making strides towards sustainability by attempting to obtain sources of raw materials as close to each manufacturing facility as possible. In some cases, we use international suppliers, because only those suppliers can offer raw materials that comply with our quality and food safety standards.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain by-products?

Royal Canin chooses ingredients because they deliver high-quality nutrients that support our customized pet food formulas. Using chicken by-product meal instead of chicken meal for example will allow Royal Canin to maintain its highly customized nutrient standards while achieving a more secure and sustainable supply.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain grains?

Grains can be a healthy part of any cat or dog’s diet. As always, we focus on the nutrients each ingredient provides and grains can provide many important nutrients.

How do you ensure Royal Canin diets are safe for my pet?

Our Quality and Food Safety systems are state-of-the-art and we continue to invest heavily in new technology to make sure they remain that way.

  • We put our suppliers through a rigorous selection process that doesn’t end with our first purchase.
  • We monitor every load delivered to our plants to verify the safety and quality of the ingredients we use to make pet food.
  • We perform tests on finished pet foods before they are shipped to our customers.
  • We manufacture every pet food we sell, in plants that we own; our plants are ISO 9001:2008 certified for Quality Management and ISO 22000 certified for Food Safety.

How do I know which Royal Canin diet is right for my pet?

Based on size, age, lifestyle, and breed, each cat or dog has unique nutritional needs. For healthy pets, use our Product Selector to find the right diet for your cat or dog.

If your pet is experiencing health issues, please refer to your veterinarian for more information. Your veterinarian will consider multiple factors when recommending an appropriate diet.

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.

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 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.

  • So glad I decided to make the move.

    By on

    Millie just loves her new food. I was already using a highend dog food so I didn't think there would be much of a change to her coat but it is so much softer and so shiny. She no longer just picks at her food she is ready to dig in every feeding.

  • perfect size for travel

    By on

    The larger size is a little pricey and so this I use for when we are traveling or if I want a high value treat in a kong. We were at my moms for about 4 days and it held us over the entire time! We're going to order again for when we go camping.

  • Great dog food

    By on

    I know that it rates low when other "experts" contrast and compare to other dog foods, but I have fed it my girls for 14 years. They loved it from day 1 and were not obese and did not struggle with back or joint issues. Even the rescue Yorkie I have eats it and she's doing great at 13!

  • 17 year-old Schatz seems young again!

    By on

    I started Royal Canin Dachshund about 1.5 weeks ago and I wish I'd have given him this food YEARS ago! Schatz was certainly showing his age with some arthritis in hips and back, senility and lack of focus, and just not wanting to get up off the sofa. He seems happier and more alert, the spring in his step has returned, and he has even begun to run a little during our off-leash walks. I like the fact that this food contains glucosamine-condroiten, which I know helps with the arthritis and stiffness. I believe that the better nutrition in this food is the cause of all of these wonderful changes in Schatz's overall health. I can't believe these changes happened so quickly!

  • Great Dog Food

    By on

    This is a hard to find dog food unless you live close to a specialty pet store and even then they may not have it. My Dachshund had a sensitive stomach as a young dog and I finally found this and she is now 10 yrs. old and has never eaten anything else. This is an easy way to get it with free shipping being the deciding factor. Lots of other nice products also.
