Customized for Your Dog's Needs

Whether you have a tiny purebred Chihuahua, a dog with a sensitive tummy or a Great Pyrenees with skin issues, Nature's Recipe has a specialized diet for your pet. Their Special Needs line includes Breed Specific, High Protein, Easy to Digest, Healthy Skin, Joint Health and Healthy Weight recipes to cover every pet's needs.

Just the Right Size

Small breeds have different requirements than larger breeds when it comes to their daily diet. Nature's Recipe has several unique offerings for each size. Small breed meals focus on sustaining your pup's energy with food that's easy to digest. And large breed formulas help maintain strong muscles and joints as well as the proper weight.

High-Protein Recipe

Nature's Recipe Adult food keeps up the energy your dog had as a puppy and powers your active dog's metabolism and alertness. High-quality protein from premium sources like chicken and lamb help maintain your adult dog's lean muscle mass.

A Meal That's Easy to Digest

Any good dog food should be highly digestible and easy on your furry friend's stomach. Easy to Digest is a formula that gives your dog the proper nutrition so his body can absorb a higher percentage of nutrients. This leads to better digestive health and colon function.

Shiny Coats and Healthy Skin

A healthy, strong coat gives dogs protection from the elements and is a good indicator of their overall well-being. Healthy Skin recipes offer high-quality venison meal or vegetable-based proteins, omega-6, linoleic acid, copper and zinc—ingredients that support the skin, coat and immune system.

Mobility and Joint Support

Joint Health uses two premium protein sources loaded with amino acids, along with a dose of vitamin C, for natural joint support. There's a delicious combo of catfish meal and chicken meal in this recipe, and DHA is added to support brain function.

Weight Management

If your dog needs a weight management plan, Healthy Weight can help keep him on track. This formula has L-carnitine to metabolize fat, soluble fiber to make your chowhound feel full, and high-quality protein for leaner muscles.

About Nature's Recipe

Nature's Recipe uses only natural ingredients and specific vitamins and nutrients to keep dogs and cats healthy. Their premium pet foods never use ingredients like beef, corn or wheat that tend to cause food intolerances. They include quality protein and nutrients without artificial flavors or colors because they believe your pet deserves only the best.

Questions & Answers

10 Customer Questions

Is Nature's recipes small breed chicken grain free dog food made in the USA and are the ingredients from the states as well and NOT from other countries?
Answer by ChewyNov 05, 2018
This product is made in the United States. The manufacturer will source their high-quality ingredients within the United States depending on availability. Novelty Proteins (i,e: Duck, Lamb, Rabbit, Venison, etc.) are sometimes sourced outside of the United States to ensure freshness while meeting a reasonable price point for pet parents.

how many cups are in the 4.5 lb bag

There will be approximately 4 cups of kibble per pound.

I currently use another brand of small breed dog food. How big are the kibble pieces? I have 3 chihuahuas under 5lbs and one tiny dachshund.

The kibble will be approximately the size of a green pea.

Even my picky girl loves this!

I love the wholesome ingredients and so do my two Coton de Tulear... even my picky little girl! She has bad teeth and the small kibble really works out well for her! My boy will eat anything put in front of him so I don't have to worry too much. I only have two complaints about this item. I hate that it doesn't have probiotics in it, which means I need to buy a separate probiotic. Secondly, I wish it came in a bigger bag. A 12 pound bag will last my two dogs maybe a month or two. Other than that I absolutely love this product!

Nature's Recipe Small Bites Chicken, Barley & Brown Rice Recipe

My baby has been on this product for years. It’s the only brand he likes. I’ve tried other brands, he doesn’t like them. He can be very picky.

Perfect size for small breeds

Was worried the kibble might be too large for my dog. It is the perfect size.

Not the same

My dogs don’t like it. The kibble is larger than what my “small, older” dogs are used to with this product, & it smells different. Cancelling my subscription

Little dog's food.

This brand is new to my little dog's. I switched from "Blue" because they just stopped eating it. They are picky eaters, but they like "Nature's Recipe."

Nature's recipe small bites.

Great dog food! I can tell a huge difference since my dogs have been eating this for about a year or two now. Both of my dogs suffer really bad with yeast problems and I can really see it clearing up with this food and some probiotics that they are on now. ❤️

My dog loves the small bites as he has no trouble chewing. This is the first one he has no problem eating.
