    Changed my maltipoo (who was 2.5lbs. At 8 weeks) to this after receiving sample from my vet. She loves it and easier for her to eat.

  • A good start for puppies.

    By on

    I've relied on Science Diet for years of healthy pets. My puppy came to me with a bag of supermarket puppy food. She looked healthy but her coat was not as shiny as it should have been. A few weeks on the new diet and she is shining brightly.
