Questions & Answers

15 Customer Questions

What size is the bites?
Answer by ChewyJan 09, 2018
Small breed kibble is 1/2 inches x 1/4 inches.

Is this particular dog food consider small bite?
Answer by ChewySep 30, 2018
The kibble shape of this food is specifically made for small breeds.

How long is it good for once opened.?
Answer by ChewyMay 05, 2020
An unopened bag of food will last until the expiration date stamped on the bag. Ideally, dry food and treats should be consumed within 6-8 weeks of opening the bag. Exposure to air, light, hot temperatures and humidity speeds up the rate at which foods degrade. To limit these effects, keep dry foods in their original packaging and store in a cool, dry location.

Is this food suitable for my 6 year old Chihuahua?
Answer by ChewyAug 04, 2019
With toy and small breeds having a longer life expectancy when compared to larger breeds, they are generally considered a senior when they are between 9-12 years old.

Decent but not what I expected

I have a long-haired miniature Dachshund and his normal food was out of stock, so I decided to try this brand instead. I'm not really a fan. First of all, the small breed kibble is REALLY tiny. You can fit several pieces on the flat side of a penny, that's how small it is. It's about the size of an unpopped corn kernel. So my dog inhales it, rather than chews it. Secondly, my dog's coat hasn't been flourishing with this recipe--usually his coat is soft, and instead it's been feeling a little rough. So I'm switching back to Nature's Recipe (now that it's in stock again).

Perfect size kibble for Shyann!

I love the brand, size of kibble & it works well for Shyann, my 16 yr old 10lb Jack Russell.

Great for my senior chihuahua

I switch up brands for my dog every now and then to make sure my dog doesn't get too bored and to also check if there might be something better out there for her but I always come back to this one. The balance of nutrients is just right for my little old lady as she can't handle anything too rich or she will have diarrhea. And I know she likes her wet food as well so this is perfect for that balance.

They were most helpful.

I had a little trouble finding the right food for my small dog and the people at Chewy were very helpful. Nutro for small breed, senior dogs turned out to be the right one.

dog loves this

After 2 bags of another very good brand, I couldn't figure out why Darby was leaving the peas all over the floor. I just assumed she didn't like them. After picking one up, and looking at it, it was as hard as a rock!! I don't know why dog food companies do that. I once fed her Rachael Ray food that had carrots in it. They were hard as rocks!! Anyway, first time I offered this, she ate it all.

Size of kibble

I wasn’t happy with the last shipment I got. The kibble is like twice the size of previous bags. Of course I ordered 3 this time! My little girl has lost teeth and the smaller kibble was so much easier for her to eat. The shipment did arrive as ordered and promptly from Chewy.
