All dog breeds have their own specific dietary requirements, and it is important to cater to this to make sure that your dog develops and grows in a healthy manner. With German Shepherd Adult Dry Dog Food from Royal Canin, you can be sure that your German Shepherd will be getting the right diet for his needs.
- For German Shepherds over the age of 15 months
- Designed to suit the breed's unique diet needs
- Helps achieve a healthy coat and skin
As a bigger dog, German Shepherds can often experience problems with their joints and bones, including arthritis and hip dysplasia. This formula has been enriched with chondroitin, glucosamine, and omega 3 fatty acids DHA & EPA to ensure that their joint health and long-term bone health are supported. This formulation will also help your dog to maintain a healthy weight so that the impact on the joints and bones are lessened.
Our German Shepherd food also promotes a healthy coat. This is because it features a premium-quality source of omega 6 fatty acids, which is known as borage oil. It also contains omega 3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, which come from fish oil, as well as a number of other important vitamins that have been carefully chosen to maintain coat shine and promote healthy skin. These nutrients have an anti-inflammatory action and they support the natural barrier function of the skin.
If that was not enough, the formula should also aid your dog's digestive performance. While this breed is strongly built, they are known for having a sensitive digestion, and German Shepherd Adult Dry Dog Food from Royal Canin can aid with this.

Royal Canin History
A stalwart of the dog food industry, Royal Canin has been on our dog food shelves for over fifty years. Originating in France in 1968, Royal Canin quickly became a top seller across Europe. It was in 1997 that they introduced their revolutionary size-specific nutrition, quickly followed two years later by their breed specific nutrition. Since its emergence on the pet food scene, veterinarians and breeders alike have been advocates of Royal Canin’s recipes and ethos. Royal Canin has even invested some of its profits into combatting obesity in dogs and into cutting edge research into premium nutrition for our canine companions.
Royal Canin Tailored Nutrition
At Royal Canin, the health and vitality of dogs is a top priority. This is why the firm designed its tailored nutrition approach that crafts formulas to ensure that every recipe created is nutritionally balanced with the optimum amount of vitamins, minerals and prebiotics dogs need.
These are not generic recipes with a one size fits all approach. Take miniature schnauzers for example with their sensitivity to fats. Royal Canin’s tailored nutrition approach ensures a special recipe with more carbohydrates and leaner meat sources. The same goes for German Shepherds. Their sensitive stomachs mean they need highly digestible proteins and Royal Canin has formulated a recipe especially for them. Royal Canin pride themselves on putting the health of every dog at the centre of every one of their recipes.
