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.

German Shepherd Puppy

GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY is designed exclusively for pure breed German Shepherd puppies from 8 weeks to 15 months

Did you know?

The young German Shepherd tends to be more sensitive to digestive upset than other breeds, and also has alkaline skin just like an adult. Large puppies like German Shepherds grow quickly, and their active lifestyle can place stress on their joints that can have lifetime effects.

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

The German Shepherd has a long, strong muzzle with strong teeth. The size, shape and texture of the kibbles in GERMAN SHEPHERD formulas are designed to be easy for this breed to pick up and encourage him to chew.  

 

DIGESTIVE PERFORMANCE

Digestive health is essential during the puppy’s growth period: the digestive system is not yet fully developed and cannot absorb nutrients in the same way as adult dogs. A combination of nutrients helps support digestive health (L.I.P. proteins) and helps to maintain a balanced intestinal flora (FOS, MOS), contributing to good stool quality. The GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY formula takes into account the German Shepherd puppy’s digestive sensitivity.

BONE & JOINT HEALTH

The GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY formula contributes to supporting the German Shepherd puppy’s healthy bones and joints with appropriate calcium and phosphorus content. This exclusive formula also helps maintain ideal weight.

NATURAL DEFENSES

During the growth period, the puppy’s natural defenses are not yet fully developed. An exclusive complex of antioxidants (vitamins E and C, lutein and taurine) contained in the GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY formula helps to maintain the German Shepherd puppy’s natural defenses.
