Royal Canin Canine Health Nutrition Babydog
(2.5 out of 5, based on 4 reviews)
Complete and Balanced Diet Recommended for Small Breed Dogs (up to 20 lbs. at maturity) from Weaning to 8 Weeks of AgeDigestive Safety: Provides for the digestive sensitivity of the small breed baby dog.The digestive capabilities of the baby dog develop slowly with age. A baby dog's ability to digest starch is only five to ten percent of the adult dog. Up to the age of three months, the digestion of the small breed baby dog is still delicate. A highly digestible food rich in proteins can help prevent the appearance of disorders such as diarrhea.A unique combination of ingredients of mineral and vegetable origin (chicory and beet pulp extracts) and a reduced starch level (less than 26%) coming purely from rice guarantee maximum digestive safety.Immunity Support: Complements the fragile immune system of the small breed baby dog.Between the fourth and twelfth week, baby dogs go through a critical period. The immunity transmitted by the colostrum (first milk) gradually decreases to reach a level where it is almost undetectable after the fourth week; this is called the immunity gap.Manno oligo-saccharides (yeast extracts) may help build your baby dog's natural defenses by increasing the quantity of antibodies in a period of immune fragility and can help promote the development of beneficial intestinal flora.Tiny Soft Kibble: For the fragile teeth and small jaws of the small breed baby dog.A small breed baby dog has difficulties in grasping kibbles that are too large or too hard. To help it grasp and eat, the kibbles should have a suitable shape and texture for size of the teeth and strength of the jaws.Kibble size and softness are suited to the milk teeth of very young dogs. Easy to rehydrate (moisten with water), the tiny kibbles facilitate an easy transition from the mother's milk to dry food.Wholesome & Natural Food with Vitamins and MineralsNatural, wholesome ingredients like chicken, salmon, rice, and oatmeal have each been carefully selected for their superior nutrient values (protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, and minerals). Every Royal Canin diet is formulated to provide the optimal combination of these nutrients to provide the best possible nutrition and exceptional palatability.
