Lil’ Plates for a big Appetite!

My dog LOVES this food! For reference, he is a 14 year old Mr. Picky Pants Schnauzer/Poodle SCHNOODLE snob. He has turned his nose up at many dog foods. This one? He dove directly into the bowl and loved every bite! For full disclosure, I received a 4 lb bag free, in exchange for my review and opinion. I don’t usually rate this high, regardless of whether I paid out of pocket or received the product for free.

Big taste for a small dog

This dog food has small bites that are easy for a small dog. This dog food smells appetizing. I don't see a need to change anything. Such good ingredients, worth every dollar. I would recommend it to other dog owners. Having a content pet, and one that is excited at meal time is great!

Great for small dogs with allergies

I use these for treats. These are about the size of the eraser on top of a pencil. Both dogs are missing teeth and can swallow them easily. One dog has chicken allergies so they are perfect. Both 10 pound dogs are healthy and love them. Have ordered several times.

Tasty easy to eat dry kibble for small dogs

This dog food seems to be one of the more nutritious varieties for small dogs and the kibble size is small enough that my shih Tzu has no trouble eating it

Great for picky dogs

We have tried every brand and kind of dog food for our cute little Bishapoo dog. Finally he will eat this brand! He is more balanced in his diet and in return he seems more content. Thank you!

Happy dog Happy owner

Started feeding this to my service dog a few months ago after noticing her energy level had dropped on her old food. Within a few days her energy had already started coming back so for me that's a win. That the kibble is so small also makes it perfect out and about rewards!
