Help Them Grow

In their first year, the right nutrition is essential

Kittens and puppies have very specific nutritional needs as they grow. ROYAL CANIN®’s range of junior diets have been specifically formulated to give your new pet everything they need to help them become happy, healthy adults.

product mini junior

MINI JUNIOR

Small dogs need more than just a small kibble. They need more energy than big dogs, and they have a shorter and more intense growth period. Plus, they typically live longer than large breed dogs, and tend to have a more finicky appetite. This is why our Mini Junior diet has been formulated to meet the specific needs of small breed puppies (adult weight up to 10kg).

Plus, our Mini Junior dry food supports their digestive health with easy to absorb proteins; it supports their immune system with a specialised antioxidant complex; and it supports their dental health with an exclusive kibble design that is easy for small mouths to chew and helps reduce the formation of tartar.

MEDIUM JUNIOR

Medium breed puppies (with expected adult weights between 11 to 25kg) have a shorter growth period compared to large and giant breed puppies, and need a high energy diet. Our Medium Junior formulation not only supports this intense growth pattern, it also reinforces your puppy’s digestive health with highly digestible proteins (L.I.P.) and a combination of prebiotics to stimulate healthy intestinal flora. This kibble also contains an adapted calcium and phosphorus content for healthy skeletal development and an exclusive combination of antioxidants to bolster their developing immune system.

As with all our puppy diets, your puppy’s digestive health is supported with highly digestible proteins (L.I.P.) and a combination of prebiotics to stimulate healthy intestinal flora.

Mother & Babycat is also an excellent diet for mother cats, giving them added energy, plus the combination of nutritional elements they need to provide support during lactation and weaning.

KITTEN

Kittens grow in 2 unique phases. In the 2nd phase (4 to 12 months) the kitten’s growth slows down but its digestive system is still developing. Our Kitten diet contains an exclusive combination of nutrients to help that system develop fully. Highly digestible proteins are almost entirely absorbed by your kitten’s body. This not only makes more of the food they eat available to help them grow, it also promotes optimal stool quality by decreasing the amount of undigested food making it through to the colon. Our exclusive combination of dietary fibre and prebiotics helps support beneficial intestinal bacteria.
