Product Reviews

Small Breed Senior Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2551.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My little guy loves it Once our Yorkie/Chihuahua mix turned 8, my wife and I started buying Nutro Small Breed Senior Dog Food for him. The Organix that he was eating prior started making his stomach upset. So he's been strictly eating this food since May 2016 and he loves it. We haven't experienced any problems with this food. I highly recommend it for your small senior dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from need bigger bags I have 4 small breed senior dogs and the small bags do not last very long feeding 4 dogs. Larger bags would be great. Thanks

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need Bigger Size Plain and simple, dog loves it, but there needs to be a larger bag size to purchase for the small breed senior chicken and whole brown rice. You've lost a customer because of that reason alone. 8lbs is not enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NEED BIG BAG OF ULTRA SMALL BREED SENIOR My dogs love this food but I will have to change to another brand because you do not make larger bag options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bags are too small I have two dogs who love this food but like many others i am having the same problem of always running out of dog food you need to sell the senior recipe in bigger bags at least the 15lbs bags you use to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please sell Larger 8-lb size We have 2 small rescue dogs (mother & daughter) who love their Senior Chicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal recipe. It always delivers a healthy, firm stool which makes for easy clean-up.However, the 4lb. bag is too small and they go thru it quickly.Please sell the 8lb. bag to the pet stores (PetSmart, Petco, etc.) so that we can keep them happy and supplied.Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Senior Small Bites I've been feeding my small dog Nutro for the last 10 years. I've been feeding her Nutro Small Bites for Adults (1+ yrs). When can Nutro start making Small Bites for 'Seniors'? She's 13 yrs old and would like to try Small Bites for Seniors because she has lost a few teeth in the last two years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointed you are no longer selling 15 lbs bag I have 2 small senior dogs, both love this product, and I have been buying the 15 lb bag which lasts about 1 month and still keeps fresh. Now my local pet stores have told me that Nutro is No Longer Selling this Small Breed Senior Product in the 15 lb bags, only selling the very small bags. This is Unacceptable. Now, I will have to find a new brand that does sell the 15 lb bag. Prices on the small bags are way too high in comparision to what I paid for the 15 lb bag. Why did you ruin a good thing?
