Small dogs need more than just a small kibble. They need more energy than big dogs, and they have a shorter and more intense growth period. Plus, they typically live longer than large dogs, and have a more finicky appetite. Whether we’re talking about their bodies or their lifestyle, small dogs are a little bit different from the rest of the canine world. Fortunately, Royal Canin Mini is distinctly different, too.

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.

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?

  • My little dog enjoy this food.

    By on

    Easy little bites for them to eat. Poops are less and smell less offensive. They eat less and seem more full. Now if I can just find a way to keep the cat from eating it!

  • Our two Chihuahua mixes like this--we add a pinch of shredded cheese

    By on

    I use these bits to put in the dogs' puzzle toys. Both dogs enjoy this food for their two meals a day. Our vet put a Sharpie line on a little scoop to mark the serving sizes so we don't overfeed. We've tried many other brands through free samples and this is by far their favorite.

    My Bichon seems to prefer this food over other brands I have tried. I think it is the tiny bites.

  • Great for the slightly fussy adult dog

    By on

    My dogs are 4 and 7. The younger has been prone to food allergies and the older can be picky. The Royal Canin has been the right fit for them. They enjoy the crunch and seem to be happy to have their meals. Worth the premium price. And of course Chewy makes it easy!

  • Best food out there

    By on

    This is one of the best foods on the market. It does have grains, which none of my dogs have a problem with. My dogs like this food a little too much, so if I am free feeding, I cannot free feed with this food because they won't stop eating. If I want to leave food out during the day I use Nature's Recipe. It also has pumpkin which is a good source of fiber. For dinner I like to feed the Royal Canin. My dogs have never loved any food more than Royal Canin. I have also never had a problem with this food, ever. I would definitely recommend this brand.
