What Every Adorable Puppy Needs



Every breed of puppy has specific needs, and finding the right food for your pet is no simple task. Royal Canin makes it a little easier for your puppy to grow up happy and healthy with nutrition designed to support the specific needs of puppies.  From their food specifically formulated for puppies of various sizes to their breed specific formulas, they have a diet that is just right for your puppy. Here are just some of the precise nutritional formulas that might be right for your pet:

German Shepherd Puppy

German Shepherd puppies have sensitive digestive systems.  Also, unlike many other breeds,  their skin is very sensitive.  Large puppies like German Shepherds grow quickly, and their active lifestyle can place stress on their joints that can have lifetime effects.

Royal Canin German Shepherd Puppy Formula is made with highly digestible proteins, like egg. Glucosamine and chondroitin are added to maintain healthy joints, since German Shepherds grow so quickly. It also contains omega 3 fatty acids for healthy skin and coat and antioxidants from nutrients including vitamin E, which contribute to cellular health.

Yorkie Puppy

Yorkies are notoriously picky eaters at all stages of their lives, so it’s extremely important that their food is super palatable. At the same time, their digestive system has yet to fully develop, so it’s also essential to feed them a meal that’s gentle on their sensitive stomachs.

Royal Canin’s expertly designed Yorkie Puppy Formula includes natural flavors and aromas that are sure to appeal to even the most finicky puppy. This yummy food is also gentle on wee Yorkie pups’ baby bellies!

Labrador Puppy

Did you know that Labrador Retriever Puppies are prone to gaining too much weight too quickly? While chubby puppies might seem cute, this means that their weight often outpaces their skeletal development. 

Royal Canin’s Lab puppy formula provides balanced energy levels to maintain a steady, healthy growth curve and is formulated with L-carnitine which may help to burn fat.

Bulldog Puppy

English Bulldog puppies have adorable flat faces, but this also means that it’s much more difficult to grasp and chew food for these little cuties! Also, they aren’t the friskiest pups in the world. Their cuddly, lazy nature makes them prone to canine obesity from an early age, so Royal Canin kept these unique needs in mind when creating foods for all stages of cuddly bulldogs’ lives.

The Royal Canin English Bulldog Puppy Formula has kibble is exclusively designed to make it easier for your Bulldog puppy to pick up and to encourage chewing. This formula is also designed to keep your bulldog’s weight in the “healthy” range – just go easy on the treats!
