Product Information

Royal Canin Chihuahua Dry Puppy Food Information

Every breed is made different. The Breed Health Nutrition range from Royal Canin is developed to meet the needs and particularities of each breed, and your Chihuahua is no exception. The Breed Health Nutrition range benefits from the latest progress of Royal Canin’s research: selection of the best protein sources, unique ingredients and flavours, and tailor-made kibbles designed in their shape, texture and size to fit both different jaws and the dog’s age.

Key Benefits:

  • Fussy Appetite: The Chihuahua's sense of smell is less developed than that of a larger breed dog. Intense flavours and aromas stimulate even the most delicate appetite. 
  • Miniature Jaw: The tiny jaw of the Chihuahua puppy can be very fragile. The size, shape and density of the Chihuahua Puppy 30 kibble is easy to break and chew.
  • Immunity Booster: To support the puppy’s natural defences we've added vitamins E & C, and mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS) to help stimulate antibody production.
  • Stool Odour Reduction: Because of its small size, the Chihuahua is the ideal indoor dog and can live in smaller homes or apartments. We include highly digestible proteins to help limit the amount and odour of stools.

Made Specifically For: Chihuahua puppies from 8 weeks to 8 months

Your Dog is Unique!

Just like humans every dog is different when it comes to their dietary needs, this means your pets feeding requirements will vary depending on their breed, environment, age and activity. The below table and the information on the bag is to be used as a starting point, it is important to monitor your dogs weight and adjust their rations as needed. 

As it takes time for your dogs digestive system to adapt to the different nutrient levels in a new food it is important to transition your dog correctly from one food to the next to reduce the chance of your pet having an upset stomach. We suggest you take 7 days to transition your dog from the old food to the new food. Start with the majority of the old food and a small amount of the new food on day one and slowly increase the proportion of the new food while decreasing the old food until you are feeding 100% of the new food on day 7. 

We also recommend feeding your dog twice daily and ensure that your dog always has fresh, clean water available to drink.

Winter our chi loves it. She’s got more appetite than when she was on ‘Medium Starter Mother and Babydog‘. It was so easy to transition from the former. There is a crunch to it that probably makes it fund for her while she’s teething. She had a hard time chewing the starter dryfood.

Bottom Line

Yes, I'd recommend this product to a friend

Tilly is only 20 weeks old and is a very fussy eater at the moment but does pick at her food all day. She does like it a bit more than the other dry dog food she had from our vets. Which was Hills puppy food she didn't like at all.

Our Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher loves it, from day one :) Canned food from the vet upsets her stomach, never have any problems with this. Because of her small size the bag lasts a long time. We've had our puppy since Dec 2016 and we've only gone through 2 bags to date. I think that's pretty good? :)

My Chihuahua loved this food. He just swapped from puppy to adult but this puppy food helped him with healthy weight gain, so he went from skin and bones (after being a stray) to a gorgeous healthy young dog. Everyone comments on his soft shiny fur and he has regular and well formed bowel movements. He enjoys the flavor of the food and has not had any bowel issues while on this food (we have tried other brands which did not sit well with him).

Yes, I'd recommend this product to a friend
