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.

Shih Tzu Puppy

SHIH TZU PUPPY is designed exclusively for pure breed Shih Tzus from 8 weeks to 10 months old

Did you know?

The Shih Tzu is recognized around the world for its abundant coat. Its hair is long and dense with a thick undercoat, and its hair will fall into the eyes if not tied back. The breed can suffer from cataracts, kidney problems, heart issues and osteoarthritis as they age.

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

The Shih Tzu is a brachycephalic breed, a dog with a typical round head that is broader than it is long. The SHIH TZU formulas’ kibbles are designed to be easier for this breed to pick up and to encourage chewing. 

HEALTHY SKIN & COAT

The skin and coat reflect the dog’s state of health. An appropriate food is important in maintaining healthy skin and coat. SHIH TZU PUPPY helps support the skin’s role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients and helps maintain skin and coat health (EPA and DHA, vitamin A).

DIGESTIVE HEALTH

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. The SHIH TZU PUPPY formula helps support digestive health and helps to maintain a balanced intestinal flora.

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) in SHIH TZU PUPPY helps support the Shih Tzu puppy’s natural defenses.
