All puppies need to get the right level of nutrition from their diet. However, the specific nutrients that your dog needs depends on their breed, weight, and a number of other factors. If you have a giant puppy, i.e. one that weighs more than 45kg, you need to ensure that your dog's food is tailored to support this. That's exactly what you have with our formula, as it has been created to support your dog's growth and ensure their immune system is healthy.
- For puppies from 8 to 18/24 months old.
- For giant breed puppies
- Supports healthy muscle development
Giant Junior Dry Dog Food from Royal Canin has been designed to offer joint and bone support. Thanks to a balanced intake of calcium, phosphorus, and other minerals, good bone mineralisation can be achieved.
Muscle development is another key factor that has been considered when putting this formula together. An adapted L-carnitine and protein content helps to support the development of muscles in giant breed puppies during their second phase of growth, which happens when they are eight-months-old.
If that was not enough, you can expect our dry dog food to also help your dog to maintain a healthy immune system. This is a critical stage in any animal's life, as your puppy's immune system is slowly developing. With our special formula, you can ensure your puppy's natural defences are supported thanks to the numerous antioxidants that have been thoughtfully included, such as vitamin E and a number of others.

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.
