Royal Canin has extended its range of products for dogs who suffer from adverse food reactions.
Hypoallergenic Puppy, which is recommended for puppies over six months of age estimated to weigh more than 4kg in adulthood, contains adapted levels of nutrients, including calcium and phosphorous.
The brand says the product has the benefits of its Hypoallergenic Adult canine dry diet and minimises the risk of adverse food reactions due to a formula based on a single hydrolysed protein source from soya.
In addition, Royal Canin has added Anallergenic Small Dog that is based on the existing Anallergenic canine dry adult recipe, but is formulated for animals with an ideal adult body weight under 10kg. The food is recommended for use in dogs suffering from adverse food reactions, dermatological issues and/or gastro-intestinal issues. The small dog recipe also helps limit tartar formation with a kibble size and texture more suitable to the jaw size of small breed dogs.
Dr Lauren Hayes, Scientific Affairs Manager at Royal Canin, said: “The launch of these two new diets is part of our ongoing mission to provide precise and individualised nutrition, so the right dog gets the right nutrition at the right time. This means our Hypoallergenic range has been expanded from three to four dry diet variations and one wet option, while expanding Anallergenic dog from one to two dry diet options.”
