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

I have a 3lb Toy Chihuahua who is over a year old. When should I switch her from puppy food to small breed??
Answer by ChewyOct 20, 2017
We recommend starting to switch the food at 12 months old and slowly transitioning from puppy to adult food to avoid any stomach upset.

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.
Answer by ChewyAug 03, 2018
The kibble will be approximately the size of a green pea.

how many cups are in the 4.5 lb bag
Answer by ChewyJan 22, 2020
The 4.5-pound bag contains approximately 18-cups of food, and the 15-pound bag contains approximately 60-cups of food.

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.

Small munchie dog food

My dog loves this small bites dog food & that’s saying something. My dog normally won’t touch dry dog food. What I do is add moist with the dry. Therefore she has no choice but to eat it. Guess you have to be smarter than the dog, for now anyway.

Dogs wouldn't eat

I bought this, along with the Nature's Recipe chicken canned food and both had an odd smell. My dogs refused to eat the canned and kibble mixed or offered separately. Even the crows, which are habituated to come every morning to eat whatever my dogs left from the night before left this kibble untouched. My dogs are not picky eaters. Nature's Recipe used to be my go-to food for my dogs and cats. No more. Unfortunately, since the local shelters will not take opened bags of food, and the local crows wouldn't eat it, I had to dump the bag into the trash.

Yum! For teeth issues regardless of breed.

Both of my rescue dogs have had numerous teeth pulled. They are not small breeds but love the small bites of this balanced diet.

Great for my picky Pom

When I tell you I have been on the hunt for an affordable yet nutritious kibbles for my picky Pomeranian, it's crazy how many articles I read researching. He started off as a puppy eating "Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Puppy Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food." However up until 7 months, he would refused to eat it. A big 30lb bag wasted. I didn't want to start him on wet food, I did try toppers and it worked but he grew tired of it in a few days. I narrowed down on a few and decided to try Nature's Recipe when he was about 11 months, was slowly transitioning him into adult food. In comparison to the Blue Buffalo, these bites were a tad bit smaller and even feels lighter and I appreciate that because it was easy for him to bite and finish eating. There are days when my Pom will finish his food but there are days when he'll leave about 10-20 kibbles and come back to finish it. All in all, I recommend trying this for your picky eater if you're looking for an affordable and nutritious food. I've also tried Nature's Recipe wet dog food as a topper and my Pom licked his bowl clean.

packaging was opened

The bag of dog food had a hole in the bag, so therefore there was food all over the box. I do however, love shopping with Chewy.

Small Bites Nature's Recipe agrees with my elder doggie!

I've been trying to find a dry dog food that my boy would like. He loves chicken, and that is the #1 ingredient. So far, so good. He's like Mikey.....He LIKES it!
