The Nutro Wholesome Essentials Small Breed Puppy Farm-Raised Chicken, Brown Rice & Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food is just plain good for your dog’s health. With farm-raised chicken as the first ingredient, this recipe serves up the necessary ingredients to support the rapid growth, higher metabolism, and sensitive skin of puppies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thought ingredients looked good My new puppy loves this food. My puppy was a Christmas surprise. This was the first food I bought for her. She was 3 days off of being 8 weeks the small bites are great for her. January 13, 2017

Rated 5 out of 5 by Small bites. Our Tibetan Terrier loves this food. We mix it with another dry food, Fromm. She enjoys the combination. December 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by puppy approved My puppy loves this food. She is a little dog so the small pieces of kibble are easy for her to eat October 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best value Perfect for small breed puppies and very wholesome. All the adult food specializes for breed, sizes and stage of life and I was happy to find a puppy food to have the same qualifications. Good ingredients at a good price! August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Shihtzu Puppy likes it! I have had issues finding a food thats small enough and gentle enough for my puppy's sensitive digestive system and this food seems to be the winner. I have tried numerous others that either he couldnt eat or he wouldnt eat. Based off his most recent vet visit, he is gaining weight normally as he should and he eats more of this food than any other and has a beautiful coat to show for it! I highly recommend this food for small breed puppies! August 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our new puppy loves the food! Our breeder always uses this food, and our puppy loves it! We were impressed at the fast service we received. Thank you for prompt and accurate delivery. August 20, 2016
