In addition, small dogs benefit from a food that aids their sensitive digestive systems. Royal Canin X-Small Adult features a special nutrient recipe and especially small kibble that increase taste and palatability for our choosy little dogs.
Frequent changes in diet can lead to digestive disorders in small dogs and cause diarrhoea, flatulence or constipation. Dog food for small dogs must be highly digestible with select ingredients and soluble fibre.
Small dogs under 4kg tend to have sensitive skin and a delicate coat. This is due in part to an overreaction of the immune system to allergens and pollens in the air. The right diet can strengthen the skin's barrier and protective function. A dog food with the right combination of nutrients, enriched with EPA/DHA, can have beneficial effects on skin and coat.
Royal Canin X-Small Adult dry dog food is specially adapted to the particular needs of adult dogs of very small breeds (up to 4kg) from 10 months:
Dental health: helps reduce tartar formation thanks to the chelation agents in calcium
Skin and coat protection: vitamins and amino acids improve the skin's barrier function and prevent the invasion of bacteria. EPA/DHA, vitamin A, biotin, fish oil, linoleic acid and zinc promote a glossy coat and reduced skin scaling
Urinary health: a special nutrients composition helps support a healthy urinary system in very small breed dogs.
Enhanced palatability: carefully selected nutrients and natural flavour protection help stimulate fussy appetites. A special kibble size, shape and texture makes feeding easier for miniature dogs.
Maintenance of ideal weight: L-carnitine mobilises the body's own fat reserves, reduces fat storage and helps to keep the ideal weight
