" Small dogs typically live longer than larger dogs, but they also reach adulthood sooner. This means your small puppy needs the right energy content to help support its immune system - this develops gradually even though its body grows rapidly. ROYAL CANIN® X-Small Puppy is specially formulated with the needs of your small puppy in mind. It provides a balanced intake of fibres to help facilitate intestinal transit and contribute to good stool quality. It's also designed to meet the energy needs of very small breed puppies during the growth period. ROYAL CANIN® X-Small Puppy contains a specially selected complex of antioxidants to support your puppy's immune system. These antioxidants include vitamin E; to help support its natural defences and maintain healthy skin. The crunchy and tasty small-sized kibble has been accurately developed to adapt to the miniature jaws of extra small dogs. Its exclusive formula also satisfies fussy appetites that are often associated with very small breeds of dog. ROYAL CANIN® X-Small Puppy food is suitable for puppies of extra small breeds aged 2 - 10 months old. Extra small breeds are typically characterised as adult dogs that weigh under 4kg. "

Private label (or white label) pet foods are pre-formulated recipes that companies can order from certain factories, add their own label or packaging and retail to the public as their own brand. They are therefore available from numerous suppliers. Click here for more info.
This is the ingredients list as printed on the packaging or manufacturer's website.
Think of the 'mixing bowl' composition like a recipe - all the ingredients you would need to put in a 'mixing bowl' in order to make the food.
Ingredients have to be listed in descending order of their weight so the higher it appears, the more there is.
Ingredients that we believe to be controversial or inferior are highlighted in yellow with particularly low grade, highly contentious or excessively vague ingredients in red.
Information in italics is not usually avaialble on the ingredients list but has been provided to us by the manufacturer to help with our ratings.
As fed composition
While the 'mixing bowl' composition is useful for knowing what went into the food, it doesn't always reflect what your dog is actually eating. This is because the processes that turn the ingredients into the finished pet food can significantly alter the relative weights of the ingredients.
For this reason we've calculated the approximate 'as fed' percentages for the main ingredient categories in the finished product.
Please note that these figures are very approximate. They are estimates based on the information provided by the manufacturer in the ingredients list so the clearer the terminology and the more percentages they provide, the more accurate our estimates will be. Wherever information is lacking, we always assume the worst.

Some wet pet foods need thickeners and gelling agents to bind the ingredients and stabilise the consistency. Many of these additives do not need to be declared by the manufacturer despite some being fairly controversial.
