Feeding Instructions

Using the chart below, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed. Dry and wet food in combination will help to increase the level of water in your dog's diet.

    Perfect for picky little pups

    By on

    I recieved this free to test out at home. I received this as a free sample. My ShiChi mix doggo has always been really picky and not a fan of dry food, we usually have to mix wet in to get her to eat it. When we opened the box and pulled out this bag she got very excited as soon as she got a whiff of it. The bites are the perfect size for her little mouth and she loves the taste, we haven’t had any problems with her refusing to eat it and haven’t had to mix in any wet food to entice her. Knowing exactly what’s in the food gives me confidence that not only does she love it but it’s also good for her. I worry about her joint health so I’m glad that there is ingredients in there that help with her I recieved this free to test out at home. I received this as a free sample.

    Great for my picky chihuahua!

    By on

    She wouldnt eat the food I gave her prior to this meal right away. But as soon as I served her she began to gobble it up right away. She ate her entire bowl in one sitting and she usually doesn't do that. She is honestly not that picky with human foods and veggies but she wont eat certain dog foods. I give her a mix of both some times. Im still shocked she ate it right away. She usually sharks her food. She looked energetic and happy after she ate it so it seemed she enjoyed it this past week! I am also super happy about the natural ingredients and real food they put into this bag. I have received a complementary bag of Lil Plates Merrick dog food for testing purposes.

    Merrick Lil plates

    By on

    I have received a complementary bag of Lil Plates Merrick dog food for testing purposes. I have not heard of this product til now. My dog is a older chihuahua, and with her current food has a hard time to break it down. As I gave her the lil plates to try, she at first smelled and had no trouble eating it. The ingredients seem to be clean with many vitamins. The size of the food was perfect and she really seem to have enjoyed, the smell is not a strong as other food that is filled with chemicals. I would totally recommend this product for pet owners with small and older dogs.

    My dogs loved it

    By on

    I recieved this product for free for testing purposes. I have 3 small dogs and 1 large dog, one of the 4 dogs are very particular about their food. I gave them a choice over this product and their usual food in separate bowls. They all took to this food over their regular brand. The bowl was empty quick so I know they liked it. The small bites were great for their small mouths and teeth, my large dog also enjoyed some of it, he's the picky one and he took right to it. When I opened the bag there wasnt an overbearing dog food smell. It's nice that this food comes in a variety of proteins, I believe this is the first time they've had lamb. The best part is knowing the food is made from real meat I recieved this product for free for testing purposes.

    Tasting review

    By on

    I received this as a free product to try. This is our first time trying this brand in general. I have three medium size dogs so the food pellets were definitely smaller than expected. It is very important for me to know the well being of my puppers and that they like what I'm feeding them but that it is also good for them. They seemed to really love the food... as you see my Lola couldn't wait to get into it. I looked forward to trying more from this brand and will definitely recommend to other dog moms!!

    Good dog food!

    By on

    I received this product free for testing purposes. My dogs (2 small terriers) have been in a very picky phase, ever since moving them from wet to dry dog food so I was excited to try something new! I love that this is healthy dog food with natural ingredients as well as supplements for health. I also like that it’s meant for small breeds and made with small bites. They gobbled it up! We’ve been feeding a more expensive brand that they don’t like, so I will opt to continue with this instead!

    A nice surprise for my 12-year old dog

    By on

    This was a nice surprise for my 12-year old dog! He occasionally has digestion issues especially when switching foods but this didn't seem to be a problem. We made the transition from old to new food and it was quite easy. The texture is just what you expect out of dog food and I like the fact that it is natural and has the flavors he enjoys! *I received this product for free for testing purposes.

    I give it a 5 but my Rat Terrier gives it a 2

    By on

    I love the fact that it’s one of the best commercial foods on the market. I spent days looking up and comparing ingredients etc. It has every I want. My pup isn’t a huge fan and we’ve had to add some canned food to it. For the first two weeks he wouldn’t even touch it, but he’s getting used to it now. We’re staying on it because I don’t want to keep changing his food.

    Good ingredients

    By on

    I got this as a sample to try for my 2 babies.I thought the ingredients were fantastic, no corn gluten etc. however like everything else, they put their noses up to it. I normally feed them Wellness Core & they are so stubborn they sniffed it & walked away ugh! Nice size bites, nice food, with they weren’t so finicky.

    Trying first time

    By on

    I received this product to review. I have 2 small dogs that have some age on them. So, this dog food was tiny which was great for them to chew! Pros - ingredients and the size of the food Cons- price One dog is picky and she wouldn't eat it. The other dog loved it!! Will I purchase? Prob. not because one dog wouldn't touch it.
