The literal translation for ‘daschund’ is ‘badger dog’, as it was initially bred to find badgers and flush them out of their burrows. Today, the Daschund enjoys such stately nicknames as Weenie Dog, Sausage Dog and Hotdog. But to paraphrase Shakespeare, a dog by any other name would be as sweet.
Because of its build, the Daschund’s short limbs and vertebrae are subjected to severe mechanical stresses. To counteract this, Royal Canin Daschund Adult formula is specifically aimed at maintaining ideal weight and preserving levels of calcium and phosphorous. It also works to maintain muscle tone and combat excess weight gain.
