Royal Canin Small Adult Dog Food
Small Adult Dry Dog Food
Small dogs need more than just a small kibble. They need more energy than large breed dogs, and they have a shorter and more intense growth period. Plus, they typically live longer than large dogs, and have a more finicky appetite. SMALL Adult is designed to meet the specific needs of small breed dogs between 9 and 22 lb, from 10 months to 8 years of age.

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.
