Products for Shih Tzus
Being cute is a way of life for this lively charmer. The Shih Tzu is known to be especially affectionate with children. As a small dog bred to spend most of their day inside royal palaces, they make a great pet if you live in an apartment or lack a big backyard. Some dogs live to dig holes and chase cats, but a Shih Tzu's idea of fun is sitting in your lap acting adorable as you try to watch TV.
Essentials for Shih Tzus
The amount of food which should be given to a Shih Tzu depends on his age, activity level, metabolism and build. Recommended daily amount for Shih Tzu is 1/2 to 1 cups of high quality dry food. For Shih Tzu pups we recommend puppy food from Orijen, Farmina or Royal Canin. Like all other dogs, these dogs also require a good amount of protein for healthy growth. Chicken meal, chicken, turkey, fish and eggs are the major sources of lean protein for a Tzu. Sweet potatoes, oats, rice, and barley can be healthy sources of carbohydrates which are required by Shih Tzus. Pups who have just been weaned and are starting to eat dry food can begin with puppy starter foods from Arden Grange or Royal Canin. Adult dogs have different nutritional requirements which are met by options from Taste of the Wild, Orijen and Farmina.Shop Now
