With teeth which are proportionally too large for the jaw, the small dog is often very sensitive to bucco-dental problems. This encourages the deposit of dental plaque which in turn leads to the formation of tartar. Small dogs have a much longer life expectancy than larger ones, and this oral sensitivity does not become any less significant. In the long term, tartar can lead to gum inflammation and even the loss of teeth, which discourages the dog from eating.
Royal Canin Mini DENTAL HYGIENE 24 Formula:
For Small Breed Adult Dogs (up to 20 lbs.) over 10 Months of Age Who Have Dental Health Problems
MINI DENTAL HYGIENE 24 contains Tartar Control, an innovative complex that helps to support healthy oral hygiene. It has been specifically formulated, based on scientific research, to reduce the development of tartar. Calcium chelators in the diet, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, bind calcium found in saliva and prevent it from depositing on the teeth.
MINI DENTAL HYGIENE 24 has been designed to encourage your dog to chew its food, and make it easy to grasp. An innovative manufacturing process produces a kibble that has been specifically researched to allow the dog's teeth to penetrate into it as deeply as possible, producing a "toothbrush" type of cleaning action.
MINI DENTAL HYGIENE 24 provides an appropriate balance between calorie intake and the actual energy requirements of a small breed dog. This low fat diet can help to prevent the risk of obesity and maintain optimal body weight with the addition of L-Carnitine, which burns fat and conjugated linoleic acids (CLA), which preserve lean muscle tissue.

The ethos of the Royal Canin brand is based on its unique vision of the dog and the cat: The conviction that dogs and cats are not human beings but animals, and as a result true respect obliges us to treat them as such. True respect implies certain obligations, one of which is the pursuit of knowledge. To truly know the animal and understand its specific physiological and nutritional requirements, and--in consequence--guarantee it a "tailor made" food in line with its real nutritional needs. Royal Canin's philosophy is therefore deliberately non-anthropomorphic. In the field of canine and feline nutrition, some manufacturers put the owners first and use them as the basis of all innovation. At Royal Canin, we put the dog and the cat at the heart of our research process; this is a radically different approach.
