Product Details

Royal Canin German Shepherd Puppy 30 Dry Dog Food is formulated with protein sources, including soy and egg, which offer a higher level of digestibility than most meats. Because large breed puppies like the German Shepherd grow quickly, their active lifestyle can place stress on joints. Royal Canin German Shepherd Puppy 30 Dry Dog Food incorporates supplemental levels of glucosamine and chondroitin to support joint health. The German Shepherd puppy also has alkaline skin, so this product is formulated with a complex of B vitamins, amino acids and chelated minerals which help to reinforce the natural skin barrier.

Royal Canin German Shepherd Puppy 3 Dry Dog Food Features and Benefits:
  • For puppies from 8 weeks to 15 months

I fed Royal Canin to my old German Shepherd dog and was very happy with the product even though it was expensive. So when we got our new dog I was happy to see that there was a GSD puppy formula. Unfortunately the puppy will not eat it. We were at a friend's house yesterday and he ate some Purina Puppy Chow which he loves. Do you have any suggestions? I would prefer to feed him the Royal Canin but he will not eat it.

Excellent Nutrition Backed by Science

Comments about Royal Canin German Shepherd Puppy 30 Dry Dog Food:

When I welcomed a purebred German Shepherd into my home, I wanted to ensure that he had top-quality nutrition. This consideration was made with the understanding that purebred dogs tend to have certain kinds of health issues as they age, especially those that are unique to German Shepherds such as hip dysplasia. After taking some time to look into some of the major brands in-store, I came across the breed-specific Royal Canin line for German Shepherd puppies and adults. I read into what made this particular dog food special enough to be designated for the specific breed and saw a number of important points of focus that the nutritional content of the food was designed for: - The dog food has the appropriate balance of calcium and phosphorus content to support the puppy's bone and joint growth. This was especially important for my dog as he continues to grow very quickly for his age (as of this review, he is 6 months old and 65lbs; very long and lanky with a large frame and looks like an adult currently; will likely top 100+lbs by full adulthood once the rest of his lean muscle/body fat settle in). - The nutritional formula is designed with easily digestible proteins that allow for easier assimilation for a developing puppy's digestive system and gut flora. The ingredients include a good mix of easily digestible carbs, fiber, proteins and fats (brewer's rice, chicken fat/by-product meal, fish oil, brown rice, dried plain beet pulp and pea fiber, to name a few) that are not too rich for the dog to digest. With an unbalanced nutrient profile, especially one that may include a bit too much protein, the dog's digestive system could reject much of the nutrition, making him sick and giving him bad diarrhea. - The star-like shape of the dog food encourages the puppy to slow down and chew his food for maximum digestion and absorption. I can definitely say first-hand that my dog has a tendency to simply lick up food by the mouthful and swallow it whole with very little chewing in between. The unique shape does give my dog pause to chew the dog food pieces before trying to swallow them whole. So how has the Royal Canin German Shepherd Puppy line been treating my dog? Very well. He's a voracious eater and will often go through 3 or 4 servings of food before he's satisfied with his morning/afternoon/evening meal. He's very active with a high metabolism, so he quickly burns through all the food he consumes. As mentioned earlier, he's already a very large dog, already bigger and longer than my 10 year old Lab mix who is right at 60 lbs. Most of his baby teeth have fallen out and his adult teeth are becoming more prominent, which makes chewing on his bones, dog food, his toys and other things that shouldn't be in his mouth (my shoes, garden gloves, basically anything within his reach) an easier task. He's an all-black German Shepherd and his very shiny and somewhat curly coat has been slowly becoming more prominent as he ages into his teenage years and loses his short, matte fur. He's growing to be a very handsome dog. Another major reason that I continue to buy and support the Royal Canin line is that the food is tested and approved according to AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) standards. Royal Canin employs certified veterinary nutritionists to formulate and test their food lines to ensure that they are actually providing the kind of nutritional support that different dog breeds, ages and sizes need. Being backed by science tested "in-field," so to speak, their claims have a bit more weight to them as opposed to other brands which rely on more common buzz words and claims that are intended to appeal to your emotions and what many people assume a particular dog may need as opposed to knowing their ideal nutritional requirements for sure. That being said, I only hope more people take the time to research the food that they feed their animals and opt for brands that can back up their nutritional claims with more than just fancy advertising with cute commercials and colorful packaging. If you can care enough to research the kind of food and ingredients that you consume on a regular basis, then you can do the same for your pets, and Royal Canin has proven itself to be a trusted brand for good quality dog food.
