The Nutro Wholesome Essentials Healthy Weight Small Breed Adult 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 for a complete and balanced meal that helps your dog achieve a healthy weight. It also helps promote healthy skin and a soft coat with fatty acids, and it’s made with non-GMO ingredients—absolutely no by-products, corn, wheat, soy protein, or artificial flavors allowed. And with natural fiber for healthy digestion and essential antioxidants for immunity, it’s food that you’ll love feeding your dog just as much as he'll love eating it.

Key Benefits

  • Nutro uses real chicken as the number-one ingredient, as well as other whole, natural ingredients for strong muscles and a healthy metabolism.
  • The blend of high fiber and the right protein level helps small breed dogs feel full, which can reduce their overall food intake.
  • Reduced feeding guidelines provide optimal nutrition to help your dog lose weight for a lean body condition, which enhances the longevity and quality of life.
  • Formulated with optimal levels of omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid) and zinc to promote healthy skin and a shiny coat.
  • Made in the USA with absolutely no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent food Have feed Nutro products for many years and both dogs and cats do very well. It does make a difference in both shedding and yard waste. January 15, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeping my Chi slim I think Nutro is about the best 'Healthy Weight' for small breeds. I keep looking at ingredients and I keep buying this one. My Chi was 2 lbs. overweight when we rescued her. With Nutro and a little bit of Halo for small breeds she keeps pretty close to 4 lbs. No tummy issues either. January 6, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our little guy likes it....... Honestly, I'm not qualified to rate this product on it's nutritional value compared to other brands but based on it's flavor appeal, our little guy likes it. He is a Pug that is just shy of a year old and we were looking to transition him over to an adult food. Throughout his puppyhood we fed him the Nutro Small Breed Puppy. First we tried transitioning him to the standard Nutro Small Breed Adult but he was not enthusiastic about it. Now that we tried this Nutro Small Breed Adult Weight Management dry food, he's regained interest in his food again. December 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product My two dogs love this food. It leaves their coat shiny and soft. I love that this company will ship it to my house with in a couple of days. January 1, 2017

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro Natural Choice Good dogfood for my small breeds and much cheaper through Chewy than at a pet store. Thank you September 25, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Dog won't eat this product. We have been buying this product from Pet Sense for two years and our dog loves it. Because we moved, I was glad to be able to order and have it delivered to the house because we have no source available here. We started feeding her from your bag three days ago and she won't touch it! We poured it out and put new feed down this morning and she still won't eat. She is fine, not sick, active, and acts normal in every way, just wont' eat your food. August 26, 2016
