Senior dog

I have 2 GSP and 1 Toy fox terrier mix , the terrier is a senior & has a hard time chewing so kibble is not for her any more . My daughter feeds these lil plates to her 3 small dogs so I stole some of her food to see if my terrier Rona would like them & she loves them . I do not feed her chicken and was shocked that there are 4 different lil plates that do not contain chicken so that is a big plus . I have been feeding her one in the morning & one at night , I give her a different cup of these lil plates with each feeding and these are small bites & soft & very moist perfect for Rona I did notice her stools are smaller & just perfect . Rona still is active as to why she eats two a day she just has bad teeth and loosing teeth , we do not know her age since she was found roaming in WV while we were on vacation . We have her 7 years now so vet thinks she might be around 12 .

Bingo, found a product without chicken

I just got Gracy 2 mos ago and are trying to find things she likes. Not easy since she is allergic to chicken products.

Neither of my dogs would eat any of the flavors I bought for them. I mixed it with other foods they liked but no go. It sure looked good but my two Yorkie/Terrier mixes wouldn't touch it

Great Chow

I mix a quarter of each Lil Plate with a third of a cup of Royal Canin for my 10-pound Shih Tzu twice a day. She really enjoys Lil Plates with her kibble.
