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.

Formulated for Labrador Retrievers
Royal Canin's Labrador Retriever Adult Dry Dog Food is designed exclusively for pure breed Labrador Retrievers over 15 months.
Ideal weight: Labrador Retrievers have a legendary appetite. As a result, they need a carefully controlled diet to avoid becoming overweight. This exclusive formula helps maintain an ideal weight with an appropriate calorie content.
Bone & joint health: As determined athletes, Labrador Retrievers give their all. Their solid body, strong bones and natural predisposition to gain weight are some of the factors that can put stress on their joints. Labrador Retriever Adult Dry Dog Food helps support healthy bones and joints and maintain an ideal weight.
Healthy skin & coat: Appropriate food plays an important part in maintaining the quality of the skin and coat. This formula helps support the skin's role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients, and helps maintain skin and coat health with EPA and DHA.
Labrador Retrievers tend to eat quickly without chewing their food. The donut-shaped kibble in Labrador Retriever Adult Dry Dog Food helps to slow the rate of ingestion and encourages dogs to chew.
