Royal Canin Mini Light Weight Care.
Some miniature dogs are prone to put on excess weight. The main factor is the reduction of their energy needs, owing to: their housebound lifestyle and lack of exercise, their physiological condition when castrated or spayed.
Some breeds also have a genetic predisposition to gain weight e.g. Cavalier King Charles, long haired, Dachshund, Shetland sheepdog, Cairn terrier, miniature Schnauzer.
The body fat of MINI dogs develops early. Thus excessive feeding may make a puppy prematurely fat which is dangerous for its harmonious growth.
A tasty food that is rich in fibre, giving a feeling of fullness that lasts until the next meal. The addition of L-Carnitine ensures a better use of fat reserves and actively helps prevent excess weight gain, while the high protein content helps to maintain muscle mass. Polyphenols from green tea and grapes, and vitamins C and E help to combat cell ageing, the reduced sodium and phosphorus content helping to prevent kidney and heart disease.
