Description

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. This unique nutritional solution meets the needs of the mother and her puppies during the first 5 stages of life. This ensures that your little ones have everything they need from the start. Royal Canin's starter food has your pet covered through gestation, birth, lactation, weaning and growth up to 2 months.

Key Benefits
  • Meets the needs of a mother and her puppies during gestation, lactation and growth.
  • Specifically formulated for high-energy needs at the end of gestation and during lactation.
  • Nutritional response helps to facilitate the transition from mothers milk to solid food.
  • Kibble easily rehydrates to a porridge-like consistency that is great for the mother and her precious puppies.
  • Start Mix uses the same goodness found in mothers milk to boost digestive health and help maintain the puppys natural defenses.

New look, same great formula! This product has recently gone through a packaging change. Customers may receive the old packaging during this transition.

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.

FAQ

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?
