What is Royal Canin Shih Tzu Dry Dog Food?

Royal Canin Shih Tzu Adult Dog Food features a kibble exclusively designed to make it easier for the Shih Tzu to pick up and to encourages him to chew. The Shih Tzu is a good example of the ''brachycephalic'' jaw type with a very short muzzle. The skin reflects the dog's state of health. An appropriate food is important in maintaining healthy skin. Shih Tzu Adult helps support the skin's role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients and helps maintain skin health (EPA, DHA, and vitamin A). The Shih Tzu's hair is known for its continuous growth and natural softness. This exclusive formula contributes to maintaining the health of the Shih Tzu's long coat. Enriched with Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), Omega 6 fatty acids and biotin. 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 source. 100% complete and balanced nutrition. Designed exclusively for pure breed Shih Tzus over 10 months. Size: 10 pounds.

For: Adult Shih Tzus (10 months & older)

Cautions: None


To transition your pet to a new formula, mix the new food with existing food in gradually increasing amounts. During the first 2 days, mix 25% new food with 75% old food. For the next 2 days, mix 50% new food with 50% old food and for the next 2 days mix 75% new food with 25% old food. Follow with all new formula the next day. If you know your dog is sensitive to dietary changes, transition over a longer period of time.
You should divide the total recommended feeding amount by the number of times you feed your dog per day to get the actual portion size per feeding.
Refer to the chart below to determine the suggested feeding amount.
Tip: These guideline amounts are a starting point and your dog may need more food depending upon age, activity and temperament. In order to reach optimal body condition, you may need to adjust food intake.

Pet Weight Lean: (cups/day) Normal: (cups/day) Overweight: (cups/day)
(10 months or older)

Pricey but well worth it I was given a bag of this when we adopted our dog and figured based on the price that I would switch to another brand when we ran out. What a mistake. I tried two other brands and while my dog would eventually eat because she was hungry she did not like the other foods. I also noticed that her coat was starting to lose its shine. I switched back and it has been worth it. The dog is happy and she looks so much better. 03/29/2013
Great Stuff I bought this for my Shih Tzu because she never stopped scratching. She has been eating it for about a week now, and maybe scratches once or twice a day. She loves the taste, and it is so nice not to be yelling all the time for her to stop the scratching, It was so bad she had made sores on herself. They are healing and almost gone. It's expensive, but well worth it. It really works. 01/28/2013
