Great food

Our vet recommended this dog food after reviewing the ingredients in his previous (very expensive) food, stating that the balance of proteins and grains were not correct for his age and size. He's a 20 pound 1/2 shih tzu mix, and in great shape for a 10 year old dog, but was getting too much protein. She suggested this brand and they had a shih tzu specific blend. Turns out our dog LOVES it, and so we had an auto-shipment come regularly from a local pet food supplier. Unfortunately, they stopped carrying it, so we ended up switching to Chewy. I was SUPER happy with the ease of purchase and how quickly it arrived without paying an expedition fee! Well done, Chewy. I'm surprised (new customer here).

Love this food for my little ones. The shape of the kibble is specific to their jawline. No more choking on food

She does not care for it

If I leave it long enough she will eat it but she does not like it at all interesting enough we cared for another puppy for a few weeks on purina pro puppy chow she used to eat hers and she would steal hers big difference in price though at this point I would not purchase again

Must Buy this brand for your shih tzu!

My Shih Tzu is really picky with her food, but ever since I purchased this brand, she has never had an issue with her food. I would also recommend buying it through Chewy, I save money and also have it on auto ship!
