Product description

During gestation and lactation, female dogs need a dog food that is adapted to their special requirements during this demanding time. Growing puppies from four weeks need additional food to support them in their growth. Royal Canin Mini Starter with Start Complex is specially developed for the nutritional needs of bitches and puppies of small breeds.

Royal Canin Mini Starter - Mother & Babydog:

  • Dog food with adjusted nutrient density and energy content
  • For bitches during gestation and lactation
  • For weaning of puppies from four weeks of age
A female dog's weight and size will increase dramatically in the last 3-4 weeks of pregnancy and the bitch will need more food to keep herself going. Offer several small portions a day, as pregnancy will prevent her from taking in large amounts of food at once.
During lactation, bitches need the right amount of energy for milk production, and lots of water. A generous energy intake will prevent weight loss. Regardless of the size of the litter, a lactating bitch needs 2 to 3 times her usual energy intake. She therefore needs a food with the right nutrient density and energy contents.
Puppies can be fed semi-solid food from three to four weeks of age. Puppies are now developed enough to be needing less maternal milk and take in more and more solid food. Puppies will imitate their mother's feeding behaviour. At the same time, the mother dog's energy requirements will decrease, meaning she needs less food.

Royal Canin Mini Starter is a dry dog food for small dogs of 1 - 10kg. The Birth Programme, inspired by professional research, is a unique nutritional solution which helps meet the needs of the bitch and her puppies during the first five stages of their life cycle: gestation, birth, lactation, weaning, and growth up to 2 months old. The Start Complex contains valuable nutrients and essential additives that help to secure puppies' digestive security. In addition, the natural defences are supported in their development.

Royal Canin Mini Starter - Mother & Babydog:

  • Dry dog food for dogs of small breeds from 1 to 10kg
  • For pregnant or nursing bitches: their special nutritional requirements are met by the adjusted nutritional profile with high nutrient content and energy density
  • For puppies: a helpful support during the weaning phase, from three to four weeks of age
  • Start Complex: a special combination of nutrients present in maternal milk and special additives supports digestive security and puppies' immune system
  • Rehydration: The kibble may be combined with water to create a tasty mash or just lightly hydrated, perfect for your bitch and her puppies during weaning
