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

  • My shitz shu and frenchton love this food.

    By on

    My 2 little doggies love this food. I mix it with another dry food(Blue Buffalo weight management). They love the combination. I can't get the larger bags in the local stores. It's great not to be going to the pet store every other week. Chewy.com auto delivery makes sure my dogs always have their favorite food. My dogs have NO IDEA they are on a diet!!!

  • Dogs love it!!!

    By on

    I have always had a problem getting my male dog, Max, to eat dry dog food without having to be really coaxed. He runs to eat this dry food and my female, Minnie, sometimes has had a hard time chewing up dry dog food. Although, I always buy food that is labeled for very small breeds she has still had problems being able to chew some brands because the nuggets are too big. They both LOVE this dog food!!! Max and Minnies' Mom

  • So happy to have found this food!

    My dogs really seem to like this food. I've got a chihuahua who tends to pound up easily and a mini schnauzer who can have NO fat, so this is good!

  • Our little guy likes it.......

    By on

    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.

  • Small bites

    By on

    Our small, yet plump, dogs are eating this formula without complaint. The kibbles are the smallest I've seen for dogs. This seems to make this food more attractive too.

  • Keeping my Chi slim

    By on

    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.

    Our chubby Cairn Terrier doesn't seem to lose weight. Since she seems to love this food, I am hoping she will shed a few pounds with less of it.
