    If you were feeding Natural Balance small breed Chicken, Chicken Meal and Duck Meal Formula this is the replacement. I called Natural Balance and they said Grain Free was in demand so they changed the recipe. My only concern is that the bag does not say NEW! When in doubt, call the company... I did wean my dogs into the new food, thankfully I still had the old to mix with the new... Thanks Chewy for carrying it :)

    My dog loved this food....but I consulted with my veterinarian regarding "grain free"...they suggested NOT to feed grain free dog food...dogs need grain, too. Will be doing more research

    We have tried anb endless variety of boutique dog food for our picky terriers and this is the only one where they don't scratch themselves, bite at their feet and seem to have the least amount of digestive issues. This is very good small breed dog food.
