Medium-sized dogs are often more robust and agile than other dogs. They have a broad spectrum of activity, ranging from the quiet family dog to the high performance dog. The family dog may tend towards being overweight and needs measured food intake whereas the medium-sized performance dog (for example, hunting or racing dog) has high energy requirements. Rummaging in undergrowth, splashing in water etc. moreover requires special protection for skin and coat.
Medium-sized dogs who spend a lot of time outside are also at an increased risk of infections and therefore need a strong immune system.
Royal Canin Medium Junior dry dog food caters to the unique characteristics of growing dogs of medium-sized breeds (11 - 25kg) from 2 months:
Harmonious growth: high energy contents and an increased proportion of protein (32%) optimally cater for the dog's requirements in the growth period when digestive capacity is still small
Strengthened immune system: a synergistic complex of antioxidants (taurine, lutein, vitamins E and A) as well as mannan-oligosaccharides help strengthen the young body's natural defences
Joint health: a balanced ratio of calcium and phosphorus supports harmonious skeleton growth and healthy teeth
Optimal kibble size: special kibble size, shape and structure for easy chewing
In the first few months of life, the digestive system of medium-sized puppies is very sensitive. Their digestive capacity develops only slowly and certain nutrients such as starch may only be digested in small quantities.
Royal Canin Medium Junior contains prebiotics such as fructo-oligosaccharides, mannan-oligosaccharides and dried beet shavings and thus ensures optimal digestion and efficient absorption of nutrients.
