Product Information

Royal Canin Shih Tzu Dry Puppy 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 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:

  • Rapid Growth: Helps meet the needs of rapid and intense growth thanks to a high content of fat and an optimal protein intake. Contributes to good bone mineralisation thanks to an adapted intake of calcium and phosphorus.
  • Unique Kibble Design: Royal Canin's 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.
  • Stool & Odour Reduction: Helps reduce the volume and odour of the stools.

Made Specifically For:  Shih Tzu puppies - up to 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.
