Product Information

Royal Canin German Shepherd Dry Puppy Food Information


Your German Shepherd has specific needs. The Breed Health Nutrition range from Royal Canin is developed to meet the needs and particularities of each breed, and your German Shepherd 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:

  • Digestive System: The young German Shepherd tends to be more sensitive to digestive upset than other breeds. Our diet is made with highly digestible protein sources, like egg and soy.
  • Sensitive Skin: German Shepherd Puppy 30 is formulated with a complex of B vitamins, amino acids, and chelated minerals to support the puppy’s alkaline skin.
  • Immunity Booster: To support the puppy’s natural defences Royal Canin have added vitamins E & C, and mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS) to help stimulate antibody production.
  • Joint Heath: Large breed puppies like the German Shepherd grow quickly and their active lifestyles can place stress on developing joints. Royal Canin have added glucosamine and chondroitin to help support growing bones.

Made Specifically For: German Shepherd puppies under 15 months old

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.

It is supposedly well balanced nutrition customized for German Shepherds. Unfortunately our dog doesn't like it as much as other Large Breed Puppy Food.
