Product description

Pregnant mothers require a food that meets specific nutritional needs during pregnancy and nursing. In the final 3-4 weeks of pregnancy, the weight and size of the puppies will increase drastically and your dog will require an increased amount of food to support hits. After the birth, energy and minerals will be required of milk production during nursing, so your dog will need 2-3 times its usual requirements.

Royal Canin Mini Starter Mother & Babydog contains an increased energy content from a special Start Complex: a special mix of nutrients from mother's milk. Special additives help to support digestion, the immune system and natural bodily defences.

When your puppy reaches the weaning phase, Royal Canin Mini Starter Mother & Babydog can help with the move to solid foods. The small, tasty kibble pieces are easy to soften into a pulp consistency, ensuring your puppy takes on plenty of nutrients. Royal Canin Mini Starter Mother & Babydog provides the unique nutritional solution to meet the needs of mothers and puppies in the first five life cycles: pregnancy, birth, nursing, weaning and the first growth phase up to 2 months.
