Royal Canin – Dachshund Adult
Royal Canin Dachshund Adult is tailored especially for the nutritional requirements of your adult dachshund.
How it works
It’s a well-rounded blend that contains both animal and plant proteins, as well as a variety of vitamins and minerals. Glucosamine helps to support your dog’s bone and joint health. The mixture also contains green tea and grape extracts which provide antioxidants. These strengthen your dog’s immune system, while also fighting the formation of free radicals. Free radicals can cause damage to your dog’s healthy cells if not kept in check, which can eventually lead to further diseases, such as kidney infections.
A high 28% of the recipe is protein, which aids and supports your dog’s muscle tone. Additionally, the kibble design is rich in calcium chelators, or specially bonded calcium molecules, which combat the formation of tartar on your dog’s teeth. High quality ingredients, including soya and fish oil, contribute to reduced stool odour.

When to use it
Your dachshund’s unique features can also sometimes be the source of health problems. The long body means that the spine can be exposed to more stress than in other breeds, particularly if your dog jumps frequently. Helping to strengthen the joints and bones through your dachshund’s diet can, therefore, be a good pre-emptive approach. Intervertebral disk disease is also very common among dachshunds, and can lead to serious spinal and movement problems. Diet can often play a part in minimising the risk of this disease developing, as overweight dogs are more at risk. The specially tailored diet of Royal Canin Dachshund Adult can certainly contribute to limiting these problems, as a result. You should always consult your vet first if your dog is displaying signs of pain around the neck, or unable to move certain limbs.
This Exclusive kibble has been developed to be perfectly adapted to the jaw of the Dachshund. It makes it easier for the Dachshund to pick up and encourages him to chew.
