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.

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?

  • Best one yet, Royal Canin Aging formula.

    By on

    Have been experimenting with foods to find one my aging dogs with failing teeth might like and may be less expensive. After many switches from one brand to another, Royal Canin is the best I've found, by far! I mix two foods together when running out of one, but have never observed the dogs having a preference. However, with Royal Canin they would separate out the two foods and highly preferred RC. The other would be left on the floor next to the bowl. My Chihuahua and Cockapoo both enjoy it. Worth the extra money.

  • Satisfied 17 yrs old mix breed!

    By on

    My senior dog is a 17 yr old mix breed, miniature poodle & terrier. She has had several surgeries in her life span and most of her teeth out. She's a healthy girl otherwise! *Like the energizer bunny. I mix Royal Canin Mini Aging, with some warm water and gravy (to soften & more flavor) and this gives her the nutritional balance that she needs at her age.

  • Chewy and Royal Canin are great!

    By on

    Chewy has been wonderful. Our Parson Russell Jimmy has eaten Royal Canin for 13 years. He doesn't like any other dry food. The last three times at Petsmart Royal Canin mini aging 12+ has been unavailable and even though I requested, it has not been stocked at Petsmart. We are so pleased that it can be purchased at Chewy.com.

  • Great dog food

    By on

    Our 10-year old Yorkie has problems with pancreatitis, so the less fat in his diet the better. I can't brag enough on your exceptional delivery, too.

  • Expensive but worth it

    By on

    We started purchasing this brand for our Lhasa Apso last year. She's getting older and was having trouble eating bigger chunks of food. After she turned 12, we moving to the Mini Aging formula from the Mini Mature. She's been eating like a champ and has more pep in her step after the switch.
