Pugs are pleasant companion dogs full of dignity and charm. They are intelligent, happy and lively dogs. They have great courage and sometime underestimate danger. They can find it difficult to interpret signs of aggression in other dogs. Its gentle nature makes the pug the perfect dog to keep with other pets.
Pugs are prone to overweight, which makes a balanced diet very important. Their special head-shape and short jaws (brachycephalic type) means they have narrow airways, which can lead to difficult breathing, with consequences for digestive transit. Feeding can be difficult, so pugs need a special kibble that is easy to take up and encourages chewing.
Royal Canin Breed Pug Adult was developed with the special requirements of pugs from 10 months in mind:
Optimal food intake: a special kibble makes feeding easier and encourages intensive chewing
Skin health and coat care: fish oil, vitamin A, borage oil, chelated zinc and a special skin nutrient complex strengthen the skin’s barrier function and maintain the natural beauty of the coat
Maintaining ideal weight: high-quality proteins and an increased amount of L-carnitine can help dogs with a tendency to put on too many pounds to keep their ideal weight
Slowing down the ageing process: a select complex of anti-oxidants (vitamins E and C and polyphenols) can help to protect cells against free radicals
