Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Picky Eaters We have a picky shih tzu and an overweight maltese. We have finally found the one food that they both will eat! We feed the shih tzu 1/2 cup twice a day and the overweight maltese gets 1/4 cup twice a day. The maltese has lost 2 pounds so far with another 2 to go. She was pretty roly poly at 14 pounds on regular small breed food so I am thrilled to see this amount of weight loss in just a few months. November 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recently just switched to this dog food.. I found that my 7lb. chiweenie had recently ballooned-up from another brand of dog food I was feeding her, so I decided to switch her onto Nutro N. C small breed weight management and she absolutely luvs this food and eats it up just fine, but I do wish it came in Toy breed for her size- she is so very petite. She is going on 2yrs. this month and her health means so much to both her and/me, she is a very picky eater to say and Nutro got her to eat something I am happy with! November 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this! We have two dogs in our house. A small toy poodle who is a picky eater, and a miniature schnauzer who is diabetic. Finding a dog food that can fit both of their needs can be tricky. We use primarily the small breed weight management and couldn't be happier with the results managing the diabetes. If we do switch up a bag, because he has gotten picky it is to another Natural Choice bag. We feed 1 cup of food, twice daily. After switching to Natural Choice we have had much more success with the diabetic dog not having the flare ups with high blood sugars, as well as, not having the days with an upset stomach. Having the calories listed on the bag is a great help, it is amazing how many calories a lot of dog foods have. In researching for the diabetes, I found most dog food and treats have corn syrup or molasses as one of the first 3-5 ingredients in their food. The difference is double to triple the calories in the food. With these two dogs I buy 3-4 small bags of dog food each month. I can guarantee that they will never eat any other than Natural Choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by We Love It! Maggie Mae, my 8 year-old Yorkie, which is actually my youngest daughter, loves NATURAL CHOICE Small Breed. As a result, Maggies Papa (yours truly) loves it too. We switched over to this great product four-plus years ago, and she has maintained her 10 pounds ever since. If it's any help, Maggie enjoys one-half cup, twice daily. April 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love. this food is amaze. my cavalier is in love with it after being a picky eater for 2 years. as soon as i switched her to this, she never thought twice about eating it. also, its possibly the lowest calorie kibble on the market which is amazing cause small breeds tend to get overweigh easily. i am able to feed her more and be happy with what im giving her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food for my dog My dog love's it. He is a pickie eater. Love's the taste and eat's more! September 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wish it came in Toy Breed I have a Chihuahua and she is 10 lbs and needs to lose weight this food is helping but I wish it came in Toy Breed. I think it used to but then they changed it. January 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by NEW IS BETTER! our little Chihuahua has a weight problem, she has only 10oz to lose and keep off. this new weight control is her favorite. she loves it! we had tried a few from the vet and she liked them but her skin got so dry all she did was itch, so we came back and the itching stopped. I do wish it came in the toy breed size kibble. Good job thanks December 30, 2012
