Why should I buy this product?

The kibble of Royal Canin Giant Junior was formulated to help junior giants in their second growth stage to develop healthy, strong muscles. The kibble is highly palatable and contains high-quality protein, energy and balanced levels of calcium and phosphorus for joints and bone consolidation. Royal Canin Giant Junior also contains manno-oligo-saccharides for better immunity.

The kibble’s shape, size, and consistency of Royal Canin Giant Junior encourage intensive chewing and may thus slow down food intake. It also promotes tooth and mouth hygiene. Prebiotics such as dried beet shavings and fructo and mannan oligosaccharides foster a balanced gut flora, psyllium supports the digestion. A measured supply of high-quality L.I.P. proteins together with an increased L-carnitine content (300 mg/kg) promotes harmonious muscle growth. Chondroitin sulphate and glucosamine together with EPA and DHA from fish oil support bone and cartilage health. A patented antioxidant complex (taurine, lutein, vitamins C and E) contributes to active cell protection.

The digestive system of giant breeds is sensitive, particularly during growth. Using the latest scientific findings, Royal Canin has succeeded in further improving the digestibility of Royal Canin Giant Junior.

By using L.I.P. proteins, Royal Canin Giant Junior provides a guaranteed protein digestibility of at least 95%. The L.I.P. label is a sign for quality - it stands for Low Indigestible Proteins. Selected, easily digestible proteins of high quality have been used to promote optimal digestion.
