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.

Dachshund

DACHSHUND ADULT is designed exclusively for pure breed Dachshunds over 10 months.

Did you know? 

The Dachshund’s signature physique demands superior bone and joint support to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Since the breed also has a tendency to gain weight, keeping the Dachshund at a healthy weight can also help to alleviate additional stress on their skeletal structure and joints. 

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

The Dachshund has a slightly arched muzzle and powerful canine teeth that fit together in a scissors bite. The kibbles of DACHSHUND formulas have been designed to make it easier for the breed to pick up and to encourage chewing.  

JOINT & BONE SUPPORT

Dachshunds have short limbs and vertebrae which are subjected to severe mechanical stresses. DACHSHUND ADULT helps support the Dachshund’s healthy bones and joints with an appropriate calcium and phosphorus content. This exclusive formula also helps maintain ideal weight.

MUSCLE TONE

This formula helps maintain the Dachshund’s muscle tone with an appropriate protein content. Contains L-Carnitine.

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.
