This Royal Canin formula is designed exclusively for pure breed Shih Tzus over 10 months. The Shih Tzu is recognized around the world for its abundant coat. Its hair is long and dense with a thick undercoat, and its hair will fall into the eyes if not tied back. The breed can suffer from cataracts, kidney problems, heart issues and osteoarthritis as they age. That's why it's important to feed a diet that is tailor-made for their specific needs.
Small breed puppies need more than just a small kibble. They need more energy than big dogs, and they have a shorter and more intense growth period. Plus, they typically live longer than large dogs, and have a more finicky appetite. 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. And if your small dog eliminates indoors with a litter box or pad, then you know that can sometimes be a concern in your home. That's why Indoor formulas are designed to help limit the volume and odor of stools by using highly digestible proteins, optimum fiber levels and high quality carbohydrates.
REDUCED ALLERGEN FORMULA Specific formula with selected protein sources of very high quality. DERMACOMFORT is particularly suited to dogs prone to skin irritation and itching.
HEALTHY SKIN COCKTAIL “Healthy Skin Cocktail”: a unique combination of nutrients containing a patented complex to help support the skin’s barrier role, combined with Omega 6 fatty acids (including gamma-linolenic acid) and Omega 3 fatty acids (including EPA and DHA) known for their beneficial effects on skin.
DENTAL HEALTH Helps reduce tartar formation thanks to the chelation agents in calcium.
Tartar reduction: sodium polyphosphates bind salivary calcium
and thus limit its contribution to the development of tartar
Skin and coat protection: vitamins and amino acids improve the
skin's barrier function and prevent the penetration of bacteria.
Vitamin A, biotin, fish oil, linoleic acid and zinc promote a shiny
coat and reduced scurf development
Enhanced palatability: carefully selected nutrients and natural
flavours ensure maximum acceptance. Special texture, shape and size
of kibble help satisfy fussy appetites
Maintenance of ideal weight: L-carnitine helps stimulate the
metabolism of fat reserves and reduces fat storage, thus aiding the
maintenance of ideal weight
