    As dogs age, their metabolisms slow. Our senior formula has been precisely formulated for the energy needs of senior small breed dogs with targeted levels of protein and fat for healthy aging.
  •  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 healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat with our patented levels of omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid), zinc and B vitamins.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bag sizes My 2 dogs love this product but I have one problem. When I go to buy it (small size 8lbs 8+ years senior 10-25 lbs) it is never on sale and I don't have the option to purchase the largest size which is always on sale. I have 2 dogs so I naturally go through it faster than if I only had 1 dog. When and where can I get coupons so that I can share the same discounts as others that purchase the larger bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food I have a 12.5 yrs old Miniature Poodle who has diabetes and atypical cushing's disease and I tried so many different food and finally found Nutro Natural Choice Small Breed he was on the Adult food but I have switched him over to the Senior food and he loves it even more and seems to be helping his joints more because Cushing's causes weak muscles in the later stages of it and Bear was just at the vet and she said that Bear has lived longer than dog she has seen with both diseases with no cure he is going on 3 yrs and most daibetic or cushing's dogs only live about 1-2 yrs I have to credit Nutro and My Miniature American Eskimo who is 5 just love it also she is a rescue and when we got her she didn't even look like a American Eskimo now 2 yrs later she has just a beautiful coat and energy even my vet and groomer says she doesn't look the same dog she is eating the Small Breed Senior too. Thanks Nutro for great food Bear and Spice both Thank You TOO! January 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Won't EVER Use Anything Else I will admit I was seduced by a cheaper brand. After doing the slow change over, everything seemed fine at first. My two doxies (10 years old) had never had anything but Nutro, and took to the "new food" fine. The problem came a few weeks later.Both of my ladies got constant horrible gas. Their coats shed uncontrollably and turned dull and wirey. They both started scratching and chewing. It all let up to waking one morning and seeing one of my girls face swollen huge. After rushing to the vet at 6:30 in the morning, while waiting for the blood tests to come back, he explained to me that dogs don't have allergic reactions to food and medicines like humans had. It had to be something else. All the bloodwork and tests came back normal. She'd had a reaction to the "new food".I went back to Nutro, and both my girls are back to their amazing selves. Coats are back to beautiful, no more itching and scratching, no more gas, and they are healthy and happy. I will NEVER let this happen again!!!Thanks Nutro for having a great American product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best We rescued a Pekingese and started feeding him Nutro. His coat improved in such a short time and is beautiful. We get compliments on his coat. He is well satisfied and loves his Nutro. We are so pleased with the results we have and continue to get from the Nutro.THANK YOU!! July 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My fiancé loves the dog more than me. The reason I say this is he insists on Nutro for our Shih Tzu .... Lucy. She is 10 and since he has been in our lives he has INSISTED on ONLY Nutro.He reads ingredient lists on every new food and always comes back to Nutro. June 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog is the best because of you. i have switched to Nutro products for both my dog and cat...What a beautiful coats!I recently lost my cat for she slipped put outdoors...oh I so am morning. But where ever she is I pray they are feeding her well...Recently I have moved to the senior version for my 10 year old Shih Tzu.It is best for her to chew and I never have digestion problems with your food!So glad I found you!With great appreciation for your company to think of all animial needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by She likes it! Our 12+ y/o Boston has been doing great on Small Breed Senior. The olny problem has been that the local supplier doesn't carry it, and has reported difficulty getting it when I order it. June 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My girlies love it!! I have two toy poodles, 11yrs old. After just one week, their dry skin felt better-they didn't itch nearly as much, coat felt soft and smooth. And my one picky eater, couldn't get her face in food bowl quick enough. When I say, "breakfast" or "dinner" time they both run! June 14, 2012
