Perfect size kibble!

I needed my miniature dachshund Josie to lose two pounds so I switched her to the Hill’s Science Diet light with the picture of a dachshund on the bag, logical right? Josie reluctantly ate her kibble. When I served Josie the smaller kibble she ate it up! Now I top her kibble with one piece of freeze dried food topper-Josie eats all her breakfast & dinner plus she has successfully lost the weight she needed to! Happy Josie happy me!!

Both dogs love it

My bigger dog is overweight so I wanted a food he would eat and not add extra pounds. He really likes this food (has had other weight reduction food and didn't like). My small dog eats this also to keep a good weight. Very happy with this (has helped take a little weight off so far).

Making life easier

We live 30 miles from the pet store and they don't always have it when we get there. Having it delivered right to the house has made our life easier

We have a small (14 lb.) dog who had most of her teeth removed. We soak these little bites and she loves them.

Good option for chronic pancreatitis maintenance!

My 8lb maltipoo came down with acute pancreatitis in the spring that ended up becoming chronic. Almost every non-prescription food has ridiculously high fat and protein contents (both of which trigger relapses for her and aggravate a liver condition she has), so it looked like I was going to be stuck paying $100 a month for prescription low fat canned food. I came across this food in my search for an alternative and was pleased to see controlled fat and protein levels, along with higher fiber. With a notoriously discerning palate and limited appetite due to her health conditions, getting her to eat anything is a challenge, but she eats this kibble with some encouragement, i.e. some low fat treats crumbled up on top or a bit of boiled lean chicken breast! Great kibble size for tiny mouths and zero GI upset with the switch. Still gets her canned prescription food once a day, but I can cut back on portions there significantly with this kibble to compensate. I know it’s marketed for pups with weight issues, but it seems to be beneficial for any dog that needs controlled fat content!

My baby loves it!

My little rescue Pekingese was getting pretty chunky so I was looking for something healthy to control her weight. This one fits the bill. She loves it and doesn’t feel deprived at all.
