About Royal Canin Small Puppy

Designed for Small Puppies

Your small puppy has high energy needs during his short period of intense growth. That’s why Royal Canin Small Puppy dog food is tailor-made for the healthy growth and development of small puppies up to 10 months old—specifically, those with an expected adult weight of 9 to 22 pounds.

Give Your Puppy a Perfect Start

Royal Canin Small Puppy dog food formulas are crafted with complete and balanced nutrition to help build and maintain the body as it grows.

Brain Development

Formulated with DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, to support healthy brain development in puppies.

Strong Immunity

Antioxidants, including vitamins E and C, help support immune system development.

Microbiome Support

Prebiotics and highly digestible proteins help promote balanced intestinal bacteria for a healthy digestive system.

Specialized Kibble

Tailored kibble size and wet food with a savory aroma and adapted texture are made for growing puppies.

Choosing the Right Diet

Early nutrition choices can affect your puppy’s health for a lifetime. Royal Canin supports your puppy throughout the developmental stages.

Start Your Puppy Strong       

A small puppy has big nutritional needs. That’s because small-breed puppies grow at a faster rate than larger-breed puppies. Their ideal diet has to help build and maintain the body as it grows and provide the right amount of energy. It should also have a taste that even a fussy eater will love.

When Is the Right Age to Switch?

At 10 months old, your small dog should be ready to switch to an adult formula. Royal Canin Small Adult dry dog food is formulated to help your small dog maintain a healthy weight, support a beautiful, shiny coat, and satisfy even the pickiest eaters with exceptional palatability.

Mix It Up With Dry and Wet Food

Give your puppy a complete feeding routine. Wet meals provide appetite-stimulating aromas, soft texture for baby teeth, and more water in the diet. Kibble meals contain a concentrated source of nutrients with an adapted kibble size and shape tailored to your pup’s jaw size. With mixed feeding, your puppy will be exposed to different varieties of food textures, helping him become more accepting of dry and wet food as he approaches adulthood.

Questions & Answers

4 Customer Questions

How do I make it soft for 4 week old puppies?
Answer by ChewyAug 19, 2022
Puppies can start to eat dry kibbles when weaning, which begins at around four or five weeks. But to make them easier for very small puppies to eat and digest, it's best to soften them with water initially.
