Product Reviews

Small Breed Adult Weight Management Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2567.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love!!! I switched my two mini schnauzers and Maltese to this food after they were gaining too much weight. They love the taste and I love it because it's so good for them. The only drawback is that it only comes in small bags. I wish this was offered in a much larger size as I'm buying for three dogs. I buy a few bags at a time, however it would be very beneficial if you offered a larger bag. Other than that... Keep up the great work! We will only feed NUTRO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
