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.

    My chi and affenpinscher LOVE this food. They were somewhat skeptical, but they have devoured this ever since. Highly recommend the tiny kibble, which is great for my aging, limited-toothed companions.

    My pup is 8 years old. She is the picket eater ever. I had to keep 3 sometimes 4 bags of food because after the 1st day or 2 she wouldn't eat it anymore. Since this food never have an issue and the small pieces are the best.

    Mimi has been eating the regular small dog mature 8 and likes it but - - you know how dogs are, sometimes she would eat it and other times, "No." I decided to try this smaller size kibble and she loves it! I didn't even have to wean her off the other food. It's great!!!

  • Best for breed!

    By on

    My yorkie started out on royal canin yorkie puppy food, went to the regular for Yorkshire Terrier and now at 11 years old is eating the x-small mature +8. It is the perfect size for her tiny mouth and does not get stuck in the sides of her mouth. Seems to keep her appetite stimulated even when she is not feeling well to eat. The only drawback is the size if the bag. It only comes in 2.5 lb bags. A larger bag would be more convenient.

  • I like it alot

    By on

    I refused to be switched to another type of food. I just love this kind; that I have eaten since I was a puppy. Now that I am eight years old, my mom thought that it was time for a change. So in protest, I ate around the new food. The mature food turned out to be the way to go!!!! I am so happy now!! Woof woof, for my smart mom.

  • Royal Canine X-Small Mature +8 Dry Dog Food

    By on

    I have 2 small dogs that are 8+ years old, they like the food....the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was it only comes in a 2.5 pound bag of food. I would rather get in a larger bag as I am forced to buy it more often, with 2 dogs they go through it quick.
