Gentle giant mom should benefit greatly from the added energy content in Royal Canin Giant Starter Mother and Babydog during gestation, birth and lactation, in order to produce all the nutrients her pups need. It constitutes a complete meal that is easily digested – even when heavily pregnant. When puppies start to wean and up to 2 months of age, this is the perfect transitional food from milk to solids. It has the consistency of porridge when it rehydrates and is therefore easy to eat and swallow. It contains all the elements found in mother’s milk, like the correct amount of energy, good quality protein and the necessary fats.
