Royal Canin Maxi Light Weight Care Dry Dog Food Information
It is important to feed large-breed dogs prone to obesity a diet that is a well-balanced, low-energy food and proportionally enriched with all the nutrients to satisfy the animals' needs. It contains all the nutrients a dog needs such as essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals despite restricted calories. A nutritional deficiency and muscle loss in the pet can be caused only by reducing the feeding portions of a normal maintenance diet.
- Customized Kibble Shape: The design of the kibble is one of the key factors that sets Royal Canin apart; they consider all the unique aspects of the animal and design a food is that is easy to pick up and chew.
- Weight Management Support: L-Carnitine (200 mg/kg) helps to burn fat, ensuring that your large breed dog maintains an optimal weight for a healthy lifestyle.

- Maintains Muscle Tone: To prevent excess weight gain and maintain your large breed dog at an ideal weight, a low-calorie diet, rich in proteins helps build preserve muscle mass, while also helping to burn fat. High protein (27%) and lower fat levels (13%) help limit weight gain while maintaining your large breed dog's lean muscle mass.

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.
