I have been using this food since 2021 and it was ALWAYS the same size kibble throughout the bag. Our rescue has 5 Chihuahua's, 3 that are 5 lbs and under and 2 that are 8 & 10 lbs. The last bag I ordered has a mixture of the about 50% of normal size small kibble it has always been mixed with 50% of kibble that is double the size of the smaller kibble which the small Chihuahuas cannot eat unless I put food in a ziploc bag and use a hammer to break it smaller which then crushes the smaller pieces that are mixed in which then defeats the purpose of giving dry food to help with tartar control on their teeth. I am looking into another food because this is too expensive to have to do that much work to crush it and use up ziploc bags or spend A LOT MORE TIME picking out the big pieces until I get enough small kibble for the 3 smaller ones. I run two rescue divisions with special needs dogs, cats, horses, rabbit and a parrot (37 animals at this time) on top of work and Boards. I do not have a lot of spare time. This not Chewy's fault but they need to get with the Maker to rectify the situation.
My Chihuahua ( Nova ) loves it. We were having a rough time getting her to eat anything but doggie treats. Our daughter said She give her Dog ( Stella ) Royal Canin for Shepards and we should try it. Now Nova beats her brother Astro finished with her meal and she is gaining a little weight.. Going from 2.9 lbs to a little over 3.2 lbs. It is great.
The love of my life Scrappy, lived 18 years on this food so obviously my new baby, Scooby now 2 yrs old is obviously eating the same. It's part genetic & the food absolutely plays a critical role in their health. (Cont'd from Scrappy's caption: He was 17 & a year later yes a whole year she was off.. he ate this food til the end.. he was fine then one evening after taking him outside he was wobbling and I knew, I picked him up crying telling him it's ok to go my mom will be there to meet you and you'll see me again I love you so much & he slowly drifted away in my arms at home. My eyes are flooding now so time to go. I miss my little boy. Jesus what knows how bad our heart aches for loss. I found my beautiful mom brutally murdered at home when I was only 19 she was 41. I now just turned 42 & they finally solved her case. This world can be so cruel. God sent scrappy to me afterwards and he helped me through ALL that pain & to lose him was heart shattering!!! )
I have tried several dry dog foods, but my little girl did not like any of them. She loves cat food. Then, I tried this Royal Canin for Chihuahua, and she loves it. It is the perfect size for her little mouth too.
We just had a vet visit. I was feeding my dog "wild and free." But could tell my fur baby was struggling eating! I honestly think some past dog foods, broke one of her teeth. I've tried the refrigerated food. Multiple brands! But I feel like all "small dog," dog food itself, is just TOO big for their tiny mouths and teeth!! I typically leave a bowl of food. And when i make meat and veggies, i give my dog that as well. And if shes still hungry, she can free range eat or graze. I asked our vet what he recommended and he said "royal chihuahua." I thought it was expensive! But it's a decent sized bag and I figured it would last! And let's face it, our babies are WORTH IT!! My dog loves this food!! It's so tiny and easier for them to chew/eat! Designed for the BREED! I saw the bad reviews about the ingredients. But theres also tons of pros with coat health etc. So, you gotta decide what's best for you and your baby. But we approve and she seems happy :)
My chi chi is super picky mad acid reflux issues and this food helps with that and she loves it the size of the food is perfect for her tiny face hole
My deer-head Chihuahua, Chip, is a picky eater. He's ten-years old and I rescued him 1.5 years ago. At that time, I feed him what his previous family fed him - and he ate infrequently and maybe only a couple of kibble at a time. Once I discovered and subsequently switched to Royal Canin adult Chihuahua dry food, Chip ate his kibble like I have never seen him eat. Not only does he eat lots of kibble at a time, he also now eats multiple times a day. Thank you Royal Canin for this specially formulated Chihuahua food!
