Product Information

Royal Canin Maxi Dry Puppy Food Information


Large breed puppies have more difficulty digesting their food than small breed dogs in part because of the proportionately shorter digestive tract. MAXI Puppy helps support the puppy’s natural defences with a unique antioxidant complex, including lutein, vitamins E & C and taurine.  

Key Benefits:

  • Helps promote appropriate growth through an adapted energy intake and an optimal protein content
  • An exclusive combination of nutrients such as highly digestible proteins and prebiotics to promote optimal digestion
  • An adapted energy content to meet needs during the growth period while limiting the risk of excess weight gain
  • Key nutrients help to support healthy bone development

Made Specifically For:  For maxi breed (24 to 45kg) puppies up to 15 months of age

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.

This was recommended by our golden retriever’s breeder, and our girl has been on it since birth. Her coat is shiny, eyes are great and she’s playful and active. Very good value for money! We’ll transition our now 5-month old pup to the adult food at 15 months.

Yes, I'd recommend this product to a friend
