Product Information

Royal Canin Maxi Starter Information

Royal Canin Maxi Starter

Is designed for  large breed mothers from the end of gestation (3rd trimester) and during lactation and young puppies up to 2 months.

Royal Canin’s Starter formulas are a unique nutritional solution that meets the needs of the mother and her puppies during the first 5 stages of life: gestation, birth, lactation, weaning and growth up to 2 months.

Key Benefits:

  • Gestation / lactation Support: Nutritional profile specifically adapted for the mother’s high energy needs at the end of gestation and during lactation.
  • Ideal from transition from milk: Nutritional response helps to facilitate the transition from mother’s milk to solid food.
  • Easy rehydration: Kibbles easily rehydrate to a porridge-like consistency that is very palatable for both the mother and her weaning puppies. 

Made Specifically For: Large breed puppies, pregnant and gestating mothers

I raised my litter of 10 American bulldogs on this product and they have thrived on it, i also feed mum on it after the birth and although she is a fussy eater she ate this without a fuss, wish i had known about it while she was pregnant!! Bottom line is my pups are happy healthy and doing fantastic on this food, i would definitely recommend to others!
