Toy Breed Senior Dog FoodChicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Formula

As toy breeds age, their health needs can become more complex. That’s why NATURAL CHOICE® Toy Breed Senior Dog Food features our SENIOR SUPPORT SYSTEM® Formula. It’s a unique blend of natural protein, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids designed to support senior dogs’ immune systems and give them the energy they need. Our premium senior dog food also is infused with an omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid), zinc and B vitamins to help with skin sensitivity and to give toy breed dogs a healthy coat. Plus, real chicken is our #1 ingredient, so even the most finicky toy breed dogs will enjoy the premium taste.

Package Sizes Available: 4 lbs.

Overview and Key Benefits

  • Real Lamb Is the #1 Ingredient
    Real Chicken for Finicky Eaters
    We include real chicken as our #1 ingredient and other whole, natural ingredients, such as whole brown rice and sunflower oil, to please even the most selective palates — guaranteed.
  • Rich in Antioxidants
    Targeted Levels of Protein and Fat
    As toy breed dogs age, their metabolisms slow. Our senior toy breed formula is precisely formulated for the energy needs of senior toy breed dogs with targeted levels of protein and fat for healthy aging.
  • Limited Ingredient Diet
    Antioxidants for a Long Life
    Many toy breed dogs can live up to 20 years. As they age, they need increased antioxidant support. Our SENIOR SUPPORT SYSTEM® Formula includes a unique blend of antioxidants that nutritionally rejuvenate your toy breed dog’s immune system.
  • Healthy Joints for Life
    Unique Kibble Shape for Oral Care
    Due to their tiny mouths, toy 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 and is significantly smaller in size to accommodate the size of a toy breed dog’s mouth.
  • no corn
    Guaranteed to Improve Skin and Coat**
    Toy breed dogs tend to have sensitive skin due to years of living indoors and more frequent grooming. 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 5 out of 5 by Great food. My 12 yr old pom has a very sensitive stomach and has had a lot of issues in the past. She really likes this food. She eats all of it and since its small kibble she can chew it so much easier. She has even gained a few pounds, which is what she needed to do. Really glad a co-worker suggested it for her. I recommend it to anyone with a toy breed. March 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Babies LOVE This Food!!! This Is ALL My Babies Will Eat Now!!! I Switched Food Several Months Ago bc Scaries (Chihuahua) Has Some Tummy Problems & Foxy (Pekingese) & Her Both Have Trouble w the Lg Chunks Of Most Food I've Found For Them, Besides The Moist Food They're Used to. But I Like For them To Be able to crunch Away on Dry Food So I Know That Their Teeth Are Okay & Not Bothering Them & This Food Is PERFECT!!! I've Never Found a Dry Food That They BOTH Like Or Doesn't Upset Scaries' Stomach So I've Been Buying It Ever Since!!! The only Thing That's A Little Frustrating Is That I Go To "Pet Supplie Plus" & They Only Carry the 4lbs. Bags. I'm Curious If It Comes In Larger Sizes Elsewhere Cuz We Go Thru It SO FAST!!! ;D March 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hercules loves it! My 8 year old mini-mutt (1/2 Pommeranian, 1/4 Yorkie, 1/4 Chihuahua) has never been one to eat much. I bought this food and now I can't keep it in his bowl. His energy level has really perked up too. I can't say enough good things about this product. I will never buy him anything else. February 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Results We have a 12 year old female chihuahua that has a very sensitive stomach. Since she's been eating this product, we have noticed a tremendous improvement in her energy and coat. Also, she hasn't had a tummy problem since we switched her to Natural Choice about 5 months ago.
