Product Reviews

Small Breed Adult Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2389.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wolf approved! Wolf, my rescued dog, has been on this family of products since he was six-months old. He moved to the adult small breed when he reached his first birthday. He loves his Nutro. Chihuahuas sometimes forget to eat; I can treat this food as a treat and play toss games with it until he remembers he's hungry and goes to his bowl. Everyone who touches his coat remarks on how soft it is and how good he looks. I'd recommend it to anyone with a small dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive Terrier Doing Great I went through several grain free and/or limited ingredient foods varying from pricey to very expensive. This is the ONLY food which does not make my little Bos Terrier/Mini Schnauzer mix vomit infrequently. I soak it in warm water for about 10-20 minutes til cool to make it even easier to digest and she has not vomited for about 2 months now. Finally a food that she can eat. Please do NOT stop making this formula. I also give her Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Fish treats and she tolerates those just fine, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The lil Biker Dude loves Nutro! After adopting a young male adult Min Pin from a rescue last fall, I soon discovered that I now had a picky eater in the family to deal with. My mom had recommended Nutro to me after my trial and error purchases of other dog food brands failed, because she had the same picky eater experience with her female Boston Terrier, and Nutro was now her go to. Glad I took Abigail(my mom's Boston Terrier) and my mom's recommendation. The lil Biker Dude with the Napoleon complex(he thinks he's a Doberman) loves Nutro dog food. I mix a little of the Savory Rice & Lamb Recipe premium loaf canned food with the Small Breed Adult dry food(the easy pour/resealable bag is really convenient and maintains freshness), and he gobbles it up every time. A healthy/ happy lil Min Pin makes for a happy doggie daddy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two Happy little Girls I have two small Yorkies, one being a Princess!!! and very difficult to please when it comes to food. I tried everything to coax her .(even Home Cooking!! but to no avail,One day I tried them both on Nutro Small Breed Chicken and Brown Rice Dry food, and she took to it straight away.(they both did). I feel so much happier knowing she is getting all the nutrients she needs, and she cant get enough now. Both she and her sister are really happy and contented. (so am I) thank you Nutro for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this food! I used to have two large dogs and they both suffered from thyroid disease and skin issues. I tried several of the 'other' top dog foods until I happened onto the Nutro issues solved! After my larger doggies passed away I got two Chihuahua's, brothers. The breeder was feeding (and provided/recommended) another 'top' food for them. I read the ingredients of said 'top' food and it contained corn in one of the first three ingredients...well, needless to say my pups were switched to the Nutro Puppy chow and after a year I moved them to the Nutro Small Breed food. They love it and I love what it does for their 'regularity', coat and energy levels. My 'pups' are now healthy, happy 5 year olds with no teeth issues, no skin issues and no weight issues. Please never change a thing about this food, it is terrific!
