    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.

Product Reviews

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food for my Senior I adopted a 11 yr old Yorkie that was rescued from a backyard puppymill. He was underweight and the vet had to extract all remaining teeth. First time I've had a dog with no teeth and was concerned how he was going to eat. I bought Natural Choice Toy Breed dry food and he has learned and able to pick up the pieces and kind of throw his head back and swallow his food whole. He hasn't had any problems and he's gained one pound. He now weights a whopping 6 lbs. :) June 13, 2012
