Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent food for atopic Cairn I have a Cairn Terrier, who suffers from Atopic Dermatitis. In addition, certain foods also do not agree with him. After coming down with a serious and very seldom autoimmune problem which was successfully treated last summer, my Vet recommended putting him on a limited ingredients diet due to my Cairns over reactive immune responses to just about everything. He mentioned Nutro Limited Ingredients, Lamb and Rice as an alternative to a Prescription dog food. I studied the labels of both options and decided to go with Nutro. Thank you! He is doing very well on this food.He has a ton of energy, firm stools. I appreciate the exclusion of Probiotics (friendly bacteria) in this food. My Cairn has an adverse reaction to them resulting in very loose stools and horrible gas. In the winter time, when we have to shorten our long walks in the Rocky Mountains, I switch him to the "Light Version" of Lamb and Rice to prevent weight gain. He loves this food as well and is a happy, slim, energetic dog.Highly recommended, this is an excellent "no frills" but nutritious food. We are sticking with this. December 27, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by What happened? My westie loved the small bites lamb and rice . She couldn't get enough of it. I bought two new bags and she will not touch it. Why did you change it? December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My German Shepherd LOVES this food! My sweet girl is a bit intolerant of certain ingredients, so we switched her over to this. She absolutely loves it! She can't wait for her meals! Ever since she's been on it, we've noticed her coat is shinier, she's stopped having digestive issues, and seems healthier overall. Thanks so much for such a great product! October 20, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Diet Small Bites :lamb and rice We have been using this product for about 6 years now for both of our dogs; a 3 lb. Yorkshire terrier and a 17 lb. miniature schnauzer.
