ST. CHARLES, Mo., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Back in the pre-Christian era, Pugs were considered prized possessions of the Emperors of China and were personally guarded by soldiers. Later, their popularity spread, as they became favored by Monarchs of Europe and discerning people all over the world. This luxurious history and royal advocacy has helped the Pug remain one of the most popular dog breeds today.
Having more than 20,000 American Kennel Club (AKC) registrations per year since 2006, this little pet has commanded a lot of attention from canine enthusiasts, dog fanciers, and pet lovers in general. And now, for the first time ever, an exclusive diet customized specifically to the Pug's unique nutritional needs is available. Royal Canin's Pug 25(TM) diet for Pugs over 10 months old is the most nutritionally complete diet available for this special breed.
With a special jaw shape, wrinkled skin, and tendency to become overweight, nutrition can play an important role in the health and longevity of a Pug's life. Royal Canin Pug 25(TM) is specially formulated with a unique kibble shape that is easy for them to grasp and chew, nutrients that help to limit irritation in their loose, folded skin, and a balanced protein and fat content to help them maintain a healthy body weight.
"Pugs are not like any other small dog. Their physiology is truly unique," said Stephany Davenport, Canine Brand Manager at Royal Canin. "And because it is our mission at Royal Canin to make a difference in the lives of as many pets as we can, having the opportunity to provide a nutritional solution for the 15th most popular breed in the AKC is fantastic."
Backed by countless hours of research and trials, Royal Canin Pug 25(TM), along with Royal Canin's other breed-specific diets, is deemed "Intelligent Nutrition for the Purebred Dog." It is now available in 2.5 and 10 lb. bags at pet specialty retailers. For more information about this diet or where it can be purchased, visit www.royalcanin.us.
