Royal Canin Mini Light Weight Care 3kg

Regular price £25.89

Royal Canin Mini Light Weight Care has been specially developed for small-breed adult dogs prone to weight-gain. Many dogs are genetically predisposed to overeat or gain weight, making them at particular risk. (e.g. Miniature Long-Haired Dachshund, Miniature Schnauzer, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Miniature Sheltie and Cairn Terrier).

Being overweight can cause your dog some serious issues, so it is important to provide your dog with a specialist light diet if they appear to be gaining unhealthy weight. Royal Canin Mini Light Weight Care is low in fat (11%) and contains 15% fewer calories than a standard food, helping to maintain an optimum weight. This dry food also features high protein levels (30%) to keep muscles strong and healthy during the weight loss process.

The L-carnitine in this specialist diet is designed to increase metabolism and encourage your dog's body to convert fat into energy. At the same time, omega-3 helps to prevent inflammation and improves the levels of oxygen going to your dog's brain, while the vital omega-6 from borage oil keeps fur and skin in optimum condition. Pentasodium triphosphate helps to prevent the development of dental tartar.
