Can I use a veterinarian's authorization if it was written by a veterinarian out of state? Yes. We accept valid authorizations from anywhere in the United States, Canada, and U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico.

Why do I need a veterinarian's authorization?

Yes, but we'll need them to contact us and provide the full name of the pet's owner after the order is placed. This is so the veterinary clinic can locate your pet's records when we contact them. Email us at vetdiet@chewy.com or call us 24/7 at 1-800-672-4399.

    Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets Dental Health Small Bites

    By Fussy on Jan 27, 2021

    I purchased this food for my dog to improve his dental health. My Veterinarian recommended changing his diet to a food that would help prevent tartar buildup and gum disease. I have a small dog that weighs 15 lbs. The small bites are just over 1/2". I have been cutting them in half so that it is easier for him to eat. He is a fussy eater but likes them once he starts chewing. The bits are less dense once opened. He will tackle the whole kibble after he gets started. Seems to like the flavor. As a fussy eater he likes the taste. If the kibble size was a little smaller it would be great. I would recommend this food.

    At two months old our vet recommended this for our two German Shepherds. They love it as an everyday treat and we are hoping it pays long term dividends.

    good for my morkie

    By purina on Jan 24, 2021

    My Morkie has a very sensitive stomach. This is one of the few foods she can tolerate. She also can eat Gentle Snackers and sometimes green beans.

    She loves it

    By Puppylove on Sep 26, 2020

    My very fussy girl loves this kibble. She's 4 1/2 years old and already had some dental problems--fortunately only needed a serious cleaning--so I purchased this with the hope it will work as a preventative. The "small bites" are really the size of a malted milk ball, but my 13lb can eat them easily because they're not as dense as other kibbles. I give a few of them to her as a treat with her regular kibble while she's phasing out of the old product, and even with the small amount of wet food she gets, this kibble is the first thing she wants to eat! I'll give her a few as treat during the day too, so she thinks it's really something special. I'm sure I won't be able to tell how effective it My very fussy girl loves this kibble.

    Vet recommended

    By Kathee on Jun 14, 2020

    Our vet recommended this for our Corgis. One of our corgi has a lot of tartar on her teeth. Doc thought this would help. We do brush her teeth. Her tartar build up was there when we adopted her. Hoping this helps after she gets her teeth cleaned.

    Smaller pieces for little mouths

    By Tammy on Apr 4, 2020

    I started feeding my Chihuahua Hills Prescription t/d last year after she had her first teeth cleaning and one extraction. The pieces were huge and she had a hard time breaking it up. This brand has smaller pieces she can handle and they smell better. She seems to want to eat now, whereas with the other food we had to make a game out of it.

    Great product

    By Kelly on Jan 5, 2020

    My dog loves this food and it is good for her. Besides the teeth benefit, her stomach is always settled with it. However, it is too big for her and I have to cut each one in half. She is a 6lb Yorkie. I wish they made tiny bits so I didn’t have to cut each piece in half for her to eat.

    Not very small bites

    By Chloesmom on Mar 31, 2019

    Got this after a recommendation from the vet office following a very expensive teeth cleaning/extraction for our 11lb Silky. She doesn't let me brush her teeth at all so decided to try this through Chewy. Chewy contacted the vet and delivered in just a few days. I was surprised at how large the small bites are but I get why. Our girl loved it right away. About 2 weeks later she is not so interested. I think our rescue dog is spoiled and kinda too lazy to chew this kibble (but don't tell her I said that!) The time between the teeth cleaning and getting this kibble was about a month and we were noticing that her breath was starting to stink again in between.
