At Royal Canin, we believe the secret to providing cats and dogs with the best nutrition lies not in any passing fad, but in well-researched scientific fact. That’s why we always use a purely scientific approach to create diets designed to cater to the specific needs of pets of all shapes, sizes, ages, lifestyles and breeds.

From the time they’re born until they’re well into their golden years, dogs’ nutritional needs are constantly changing, and we believe their food should, too. That’s why we offer a full line of products designed for dogs at every life stage. 

From the time they’re kittens until they’re mature, cats’ nutritional needs are constantly changing, and we believe their food should, too. Your cat’s health matters, and that’s why we offer a full line of nutrition designed for every life stage.

Chihuahua Puppy

CHIHUAHUA PUPPY is designed exclusively for pure breed Chihuahua puppies from 8 weeks to 8 months

Did you know?

Chihuahua puppies tend to be picky eaters, making it difficult to ensure the right nutrition for healthy development. Plus, they are less able to digest proteins, resulting in fermentation in the intestinal tract. 

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

A kibble designed with the optimal size and texture for the miniature jaw and slightly pointed muzzle of the Chihuahua.

HIGH PALATABILIITY

Chihuahuas are known for their fussy appetites. A highly palatable food is therefore recommended to satisfy them fully. CHIHUAHUA PUPPY satisfies the Chihuahua’s appetite with a combination of three factors: a careful selection of exceptional aromas and flavors along with a customized kibble size and shape.

STOOL & ODOR REDUCTION

This formula helps reduce fecal smell and volume, and helps support good digestion with highly digestible proteins (L.I.P.), an appropriate fiber content and high quality carbohydrate sources.

NATURAL DEFENSES

During the growth period, the puppy’s natural defenses are not yet fully developed.  Prebiotics and an exclusive complex of antioxidants (vitamins E and C, lutein and taurine) contained in the CHIHUAHUA PUPPY formula help support the Chihuahua puppy’s natural defenses.
