Is this brand good for a 7 lb adult Maltese? I am thinking of pairing this with Wellness 95% Chicken topper canned food and am worried it may be too much protein for my dog.
Answer by ChewySep 26, 2020
This formula is suitable for small breed dogs. The amount of food your pet requires will vary depending on their age, breed, and activity level, but a pet's weight is one of the most accurate ways to judge how much to feed them. When combining wet and dry foods, it is best to take into account the pet's daily caloric needs and ration the wet and dry foods accordingly to provide them with appropriate nutrition and calories. If uncertain, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian.

How big is the Small breed core wholesome grain kibble?
Answer by ChewyJun 09, 2020
This formula has a flat triangle shaped kibble measuring approximately 10 x 10 millimetres.

Little man is SOLD

I had my last dog of 14 years, and then this newly adopted doggie both on Wellness adult chicken flavor dry food, but new doggie didn’t seem to love it and all but stopped eating it in the last wk :\ I think the kibbles were just too big and awkward and maybe boring? Idk.. so I tried this one and oooooh boy, SUCCESS. He SCARFS it. The pieces r way smaller and he literally stares at me for more after! I’m so happy :*) he seems very energized and maybe even a little less gassy! Bosties are so finicky and have such sensitive stomachs, I’m so glad to have found this. Yay!

Great for tiny dogs

My Chihuahua Is a very picky eater. He loves this food not only for the taste but for the tiny size of each bite

All the right stuff!

I had been looking for a dry food for my Jaxon for awhile. It had to meet certain criteria as “grain-free” was no longer that simple. I wanted to eliminate the pea protein and all others that fall in this category. This Core fits that criteria and he loves it. I do mix it, however, with home cooked Turkey and vegetables. This completes the proper nutrition. Thank you Wellness

It's a winner

I was recently advised by my veterinarian to get my small breed dog re-introduced to a healthy grain kibble. A study at UCDavis revealed that dogs with an enlarged heart had one thing in common - a no grain diet. My dog has been on a diet of chicken and vegetables for 6 years. Chewey carries this small breed high protein kibble and my dog loves it. She has been chowing it down for the last month so it is a winner.

My Chihuahua's LOVE this!

I have tried a couple of different foods over the span of my pets lifetime. I saw good reviews on this one and wanted to try a smaller kibble as my pets are older and have lost some teeth. It took a week or so before they really tried much of it, but now that they are used to it, they LOVE it. They usually finish the whole 1/4 cup serving in one sitting rather than grazing. I am very pleased with this food, and although expensive, it is worth it to know my pet is getting a healthy meal regularly.

SHOCKING RESULTS

I don't usually buy Small Breed Kibble for my dogs. They are Boston Terriers and are borderline for Small Breed or the Original. When I put the bowl down I could tell that it was a hit. My Izzy gobbled up the entire bowl without stopping to come up for air. lol I also just recently started feeding the Wholesome Grains also. I have been feeding Wellness Core for a few years now. So glad that there are so many options now. It's always a hit at our house.

Good product

Took a few days for them to eat it without being coaxed. I always top food with broth and other wet food. Sometimes left overs. Sometimes canned sardines. I like to mix it up for them. This took longer than expected for them to acquire a taste for.
