Product Information

Royal Canin Shih Tzu Dry Dog Food Information

Your Shih Tzu has specific needs. The Breed Health Nutrition range from Royal Canin is developed to meet the needs and particularities of each breed, and your Shih Tzu is no exception. The whole 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:

  • Thick Coat Nourishment: Shih Tzu dogs are recognised for their beautiful, flowing coats. Shih Tzu 24 includes sulfur amino acids as well as Omega 6 and 3 essential fatty acids to help protect and nourish their long, dense coat.
  • Unique Kibble Design: SHIH TZU 24s unique, easy-to-grasp, L-shaped kibble is specifically adapted to the Shih Tzu’s distinctive teeth and jaws. The kibble size and shape encourage chewing, which can help to fight plaque and tartar.
  • Sensitive Digestion: Less activity can result in protein fermentation in the gut and larger, smellier stools. SHIH TZU 24 is formulated with a balance of soluble and insoluble fibres to help improve digestion.
  • Sensitive Skin: Shih Tzu dogs are susceptible to skin issues, Royal Canin has included sulfur from amino acids and essential vitamins to help strengthen the skin’s natural barrier to help reduce the impact of environmental irritations.

Made Specifically For:  Adult and mature Shih Tzu dogs - over 10 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.
