Questions & Answers

Can this be given to a puppy as young as 2 1/2 weeks?
Answer by ChewyJun 23, 2019
Puppies less than 3 weeks old should be fed Mother's Milk. We do not recommend feeding Starter Mousse to puppies under 3 weeks old.

My puppy is a Shih Tzu born on March 30th. Mom weaned the puppies during the 5th week. I have the puppy now and she is doing great, is this wet food recommended for this situation and no longer getting mother’s milk? If so how long should I give this to her?
Answer by ChewyMay 25, 2020
This recipe is formulated to meet the nutrition and energy needs of mothers during the third trimester and through lactation, and weaning puppies through two months of age (8 weeks).

My puppy is 4 weeks old & 1 lb for how many weeks do I feed him the Royal Canin Starter Mousse Mother & Babydog Canned food?
Answer by ChewyDec 31, 2020
Starter mousse is formulated to support the increased energy and nutritional needs of the mother from the last 1/3 of gestation through lactation, and very young puppies from weaning up to 2 months of age.

What is the shelf life of royal canin starter mousse?
Answer by ChewyApr 11, 2021
Manufacturers establish “best by” dates to ensure the safety of your dog. Look for the expiration date on the bottom of your food bag or cans, and plan to use the food before that date. In general, unopened dry pet foods have a shelf life of one year, while unopened canned foods are good for two years from the date of manufacture. Canned food, when stored properly, should last through the manufacturer’s indicated expiration date. Once opened, wet food should be refrigerated and consumed within two days. If left out at room temperature, it should be discarded after two hours.

Our pups love this food !

Although this canned Mousse is costly, it is a great starter for our Standard Poodle Puppies and Brittanys. We can begin feeding them a little earlier and it gets the heat off Mom with big litters. Seems to be a great food and works well for us . Mom eats what pups do not and we are off to a great start. Have used it for MANY Years. Thank you !

Royal Canin Mother & Puppy Mousse

I tube feed cleft pups and after 3 weeks they need more nutrition than just esbilac formula so I add the Royal canin mousse it blends smoothly no lumps so it flows though the feeding tubes.

Great infant food

I recently adopted a rescue puppy and she absolutely loves this Royal Canin starter Mousse! I adopted her around 6-7 weeks of age and this starter mousse is providing all the essential nutrients that her little body needs right now. My vet highly recommends all the Royal Canin products and I intend to next move onto their regular puppy canned and dry foods for my little girl.

Excellent Bland Diet for Sick Dogs

My 11yr old small dog had a really terrible bout with gastritis and had multiple ultrasounds, GI meds, steroids and by the end of it she really just didn't want to eat. Even after the gastritis was cleared up, as soon as the steroids were stopped she stopped eating. She would occasionally eat chicken and rice but obviously needed more nutrition. I bought several cans/brands of various foods and mini Starter really saved us. The thin pate consistency was easy for her to eat and digest and the food helped stimulate her appetite. We only needed to use it for a couple of weeks but I was very grateful for this product! I can see why so many breeders and puppies love this!

Puppy Rescue

This food was a donation for a wonderful rescue. A little of puppies who lost their mother are healthy and eating well on their own. Puppies had to be syringe fed 24 hrs day. This lady is an angel for so many rescues. If you felt so inclined, I know she would appreciate more food. It the Canine Rescue address in my profile.

Bull Terrier Breeder

I love this. My puppies were not getting enough milk. They are three weeks old. Started slow; the only thing was the puppies poop was a little soft. But three days and everything was completely normal.

Good quality, high price

I've used this starter mousse for years. Foster puppies thrive on it because it is an easy first food. Disappointed in the two-fold price increase. Smaller cans and higher price per case. I'll be looking for a different wet food now. Sorry to give it up. (Royal Canin did the same with the babycat wet food.)
