My Yorkie is about to turn a year old next month? Is this Dry Dog Food good for a small breed yorkie?
Answer by ChewyJun 19, 2018
This food is suitable for all small, extra small, and toy breeds including Yorkies.

I will be bringing home a 9 week old pup and have 12 yr. old at home. Is this considered an "all stage" food?
Answer by ChewyApr 03, 2018
This formula is suitable for small breed dogs of all life stages.

Are the kibble bites small enough to eat for a Toy breed, specifically a Chichuhua.
Answer by ChewyJan 25, 2018
This formula features small kibble bites perfect for Extra Small, Small and Toy Breeds.

Are any of these moist or soft chew
Answer by ChewyDec 19, 2017
Dog's size and age is important when it comes to kibble size and texture. For example, the kibble for a giant breed adult dog is much larger and more brittle than the kibble for a miniature breed puppy, which needs smaller, softer pieces.

My dog refused to eat this.

I purchased this for my dog as he is small. I like the size of the kibble. Looked like it would be healthy for him. He ate a few bites the first day and has refused to eat any since that first time. He usually eats just about everything. I was very surprised when he refused to eat this.

Good product

This food seems fine. I ordered the wrong one, but this is fine. I met to get one with freeze dried beef bits.

I put water on it to see if anything would come to the surface and it looked bad.

Not great taste

My two Shih Tzu’s turned their nose up to it. Tried for a week even mixed in with old food and it didn’t help.

small bites

I have two rescue dogs. One of my dogs have had 26 teeth pulled due to neglect. This is the smallest little B that I can find and I take it container and add a little bit of water and keep that in the refrigerator just to soften for her and mixed with a meat and vegetable mixture. She also will eat it dry bless her heart I have found that Merrick is a very good brand dog food
