SALMON - Source of omega-3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA.

CHICKEN - Lean source of essential minerals and B vitamins like niacin.

Nutrient-Packed Ingredients

Every ingredient is carefully selected for its nutritional value, including antioxidant-rich vegetables and whole grains. You won’t find any poultry by-product meals, corn, wheat, soy or artificial preservatives on this list.

SWEET POTATOES

A healthy source of beta-carotene and other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals.

CARROTS & PEAS

Rich in plant phytonutrients, beta-carotene and natural fibers to benefit digestion.

FLAXSEED & FISH OIL

Provide omega fatty acids to help maintain a healthy skin & coat.

BROWN RICE

A whole-grain, hearty source of complex carbohydrates for clean, sustained energy.

Designed for Smaller Bites

These kibble bits are specially designed for the smaller teeth and jaws of small-breed dogs. The bite-sized pieces are easier to chew and the crunchy texture works to scrub tartar as dogs eat to help support dental health.

    Wanted to love it

    By Pupmom on Oct 17, 2021

    I really wanted to love this dry food. The kibble size was great for my two small dogs. I’ve always trusted Chewy so when they offered their brand as a substitute for my out of stock brand I gave it a try. I carefully introduced it by mixing with their old food over a week to 10:days. Unfortunately they hated it. They absolutely refused to eat it. I’ve ordered another brand and now I have to go through the introduction process all over again.

    Perfect for the little ones

    By mmip on Aug 31, 2021

    I have 2 chihuahuas, it’s always a struggle trying to find food that is healthy, small enough, and that they enjoy eating. This food hits every one! My only complaint is that it did come a bit dusty but I’m guessing it’s because it was all the way to the bottom of my order. Other than that, they love it and I’m happy.

    My dog loves it!

    By joys on Sep 28, 2021

    I just transitioned my almost one year old miniature schnauzer from the puppy food to this active life small breed food. She loves it and there have been no problems gradually switching her over.

    Perfect for small dogs

    By ANGELEENA on Aug 29, 2021

    My girls love this food. They were getting choked on the other kibble, especially my littlest. They are maltese, shih tzu and pom mix. Very picky eaters. Not with this food. The kibble is the right size for them.

    Love this Sized Kibble

    By Emmie on May 3, 2021

    I love American Journey. HEALTHY and my kiddos Mini Schnauzers just LOVE IT too!! I switch flavors and NO tummy upset. I LOVE this sized kibble too. I do however wish the bag was a bit bigger. 18 lbs would be PERFECT.

    chi terrier pup loves it..but

    By Will on Feb 6, 2021

    (One CON listed at bottom) My buddy recommended this brand food because his dogs love it and they have the softest coats. So we tracked down the small breed version for our little 4 month 10 pound chi terrier mix. Vet approved moving off Hill Science diet Puppy food, which we loved, had really tiny niblets and puppy loved it. For this food the niblets are a tad big for young teether’s but we add a little warm water and swish it around sometimes for her. But that’s fair since it’s not labeled a puppy food, just for small breed. She loves the taste though, just grunts in pain sometimes when biting. But she is teething so in a few weeks should be no problem.

But she is also growing and losing her puppy breath so it could not be the food 100% Other then that, nutrients wise it has everything to keep your dog healthy, with a shiny sylky smooth coat. … more
