Overview and Key Benefits

  • Real Chicken Is the #1 Ingredient
    Real Chicken Is Our #1 Ingredient
    We include real chicken as our #1 ingredient, as well as other whole, natural ingredients, such as whole brown rice and sunflower oil, to please even the most selective palates — guaranteed.
  • Unique Kibble Shape for Oral Care
    Unique Kibble Shape for Oral Care
    Due to their smaller mouths, small breed dogs’ teeth are more prone to overcrowding, which can lead to oral health concerns. Our unique kibble shape is designed to naturally reduce plaque and tartar buildup.
  • Antioxidants for a Long Life
    Antioxidants for Immune Systems
    Since many small dogs live up to 20 years, they need increased antioxidant support. Our DNADVANTAGE BLEND® Formula includes a unique blend of antioxidants that nutritionally rejuvenate your dog’s immune system.
  • Guaranteed to Improve Skin and Coat
    Guaranteed to Improve Skin and Coat**
    Small dogs not only spend the majority of their time indoors, but they also are groomed more frequently. This lifestyle lends itself to skin sensitivity. We guarantee a healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat with our patented levels of omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid), zinc and B vitamins.
  • Higher Energy Needs
    Targeted Nutrition for a Higher Metabolism
    Our formula has been precisely formulated with targeted levels of protein and fat to keep up with the higher energy needs of a small breed adult dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Agree with people who say bags are small I have four schnauzers/ They weigh from 10 to 20 lbs. I used to give them small bites from Nutro and it came in a 30 LB bag. I bought it once a month. Now with this small breed bag I have to go to the store twice a month. Also, can we have treats smaller? April 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Neede bigger bags The 15 lbs. are too small to feed my cocker spaniel. Please get the bigger bags. March 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food but need big bag Please sell this stuff in a bigger bag like your other varieties. It's a royal pain to go back to the store so often. March 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product. Larger Bag! My two cockapoos love this food! I, like many others, would appreciate a larger bag!! February 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy dogs. Happy doggy mama. I have 2 small dogs, who eat twice daily. Beneful was making my girl sick. Nutro was vet recommended. A month since switching, my dogs love their food and are thriving. The only downfall is the bags are too small for multiple animals who eat 2 times a day. Manufacturer Coupons would be a great perk. December 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigger bag and coupons please! I have 2 rescues and a foster dog. I buy at least two 15 lb. bags a month. A 30 lb. bag would be wonderful.Coupons for this product would be really great as well.Thank you. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Natural Choice Small Breed I rescued my dog and I could not get him to eat any commercial dog food for a year. I was cooking him chicken every day. Finally one day I was in PetSmart and decided to try this brand. Got home and my dog dived into his bowl and ate all of what I gave him. Been eating it ever since. I thank you so much for putting out a great product. October 12, 2013
