Royal Canin X-Small Junior is a specialised dry dog food for puppies of very small breeds (adult weight up to 4kg).
Puppies of small breeds undergo a very short and intense growth period. Given adequate energy and protein they will multiply their body weight by 20 within a very short period. A nutritious, optimal diet during this sensitive phase will lay the foundation for a long and healthy life.
Royal Canin X-Small Junior dry dog food is specially adapted to the particular needs of puppies of very small breeds (up to 4kg adult weight) from two months:
Bone and muscle development: A small-breed puppy will have completed muscle and bone development by the time it is 10 months old. Its energy needs per kg of body weight will be 1.6 times higher during this time than that of an adult dog. However, calorie intake must be carefully adjusted to avoid excessively rapid weight gain
Perfect kibble size: a special kibble size makes feeding easier for very small puppies
Enhanced palatability: Carefully selected nutrients and natural flavour protection help stimulate fussy appetites
Dental health: Sodium triphosphate helps reduce tartar formation thanks to the chelation agents in calcium
Optimal digestive security: A puppy's digestive system in the first few months of its life it highly sensitive. Digestive capacity has to develop slowly and certain ingredients, such as starch, are hard to digest for a young dog. A specialised diet with highly digestible proteins, fructo-oligo-saccharides and fish oil can ensure optimal digestion and efficient nutrient intake.
Royal Canin X-Small Junior contains L.I.P. proteins, which achieve guaranteed protein digestibility of at least 95%. The designation L.I.P. stands for quality. L.I.P. proteins are select, easily digestible proteins of high nutritional value for optimal digestion.
