How many cups in 25 lbs bag?
Answer by ChewyMay 09, 2018
There's approximately 20 cups of food in the 5 pound bag, 50 cups of food in the 12.5 pound bag, and 100 cups of food in the 25 pound bag.

Caloric values are not listed. Any reason?
Answer by ChewySep 08, 2020
This recipe contains 375.7 kilocalories per cup.

I was wanting the lotus small bites for seniors in the 25lb. bag. I see the large bag is cheaper than the 12lb. It doesn’t come in the large 25lb. bag?
Answer by ChewyAug 01, 2018
The 12.5-lb is currently the largest size offered for that Lotus small breed formula. Small bites formulas, like cat food formulas, generally come in smaller bags because the kibble is eaten at a slower pace or in smaller portions for small breed dogs.

What is the amount of carbohydrates per cup?
Answer by ChewyFeb 10, 2018
The Carbohydrate content for this formula is 53.61%.

Not for my pups

So unfortunate! My 13 and 15yr old pups do not like these at all. I mix in 12 of these kibbles with their old kibbles just to get them used to it, but they always leave or spit out the lotus kibbles.

Better than Rx

This is the most expensive bag of dog food I've ever purchased but well worth the coat. My now 15 year old Australian Shepherd was diagnosed with early stages of kidney disease when he was 8. Over the first few years after his diagnosis we tried every possible option for dry and canned prescription kidney diets and he hated them all. He would just stave himself until we gave in and fed him the other dog's food. After thorough research I found Lotus senior formula which is low in phosphorus compared to a regular adult kibble. My boy has been on this food for almost 3 years now and his last 2 blood panels have come back completely normal. I didn't even know kidney disease could heal itself but our vet was thrilled and said his diet saved him.

All ingredients are great, except I wish the bag would have advertised glucosamine better. It’s just to much for my chihuahua and give her really bad gas and loose stools.

kibble is a bit large in size for small dogs

The ingredients and quality of this food are excellent, but I bought it for my 12 year old silky terrier and she picks all of it out (I mix it with her old food) I don’t believe it’s the taste though, I believe it has something to do with the kibble size. Compared to other small dog food the size of the kibble is significantly larger so just take that into consideration when buying this food for an older small dog! If they had a smaller kibble size I would absolutely try it

High Quality Ingredients

There is no doubt the quality of this food is top notch and I love that it has lower protein for my seniors kidneys. I switched to this after his Natural Balance L.I D. was discontinued. However im not sure if I'll reorder as he has had very loose stool even after graduly switching over. Amazing quality food and ingredients though!

Senior Tasty Treat

Lotus is the best senior food dry kibble yet to be found. My 63 lb. Spring spaniel can not get enough of Lotus!

Not for my pups

I had been feeding another brand and my girl was occasionally throwing up, so I thought it was time to bite the bullet and invest in higher quality food. This had stellar reviews so I was anxious to try it out. She loved the taste but unfortunately she had horrible gas and stomach pain for as long as she was on it. The kibble itself has a weird sour smell, so maybe we got a bad batch. I don’t think it’s a bad product, it just didn’t work for my sensitive senior, so I donated the rest of the nearly full bad to the rescue she was adopted from. It was an expensive lesson to learn. The search for the perfect food continues!

Great for a substitute of low calorie training treats!

I specifically use a low calories dry dog food as agility training treats to keep the dogs fit. I love how the color of Louts kibbles is lighter than most other brands kibbles. It makes it easy for the dogs as well as me to spot when tossed on the ground.

Senior Girl Loves It!

My senior broke into this bag that was under the Christmas tree to help herself to this food which she obviously finds yummy! Wonderful formula too. Not as expensive as other premium brands with the vitamins, minerals & amino acids I want.
