Small Breed Puppy FoodChicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Recipe

Small breed puppies have higher metabolisms, sensitive skin, developing teeth and are often finicky eaters. They require the right energy and nutrients from their food in order to support rapid growth. Because finding the right food is crucial to their overall development, we’ve formulated a natural diet for their specific needs. Made with real, farm-raised chicken, this healthy, natural small breed puppy food contains targeted levels of protein, DHA, minerals, and the right balance of calcium and phosphorus. Its unique kibble shape is designed to reduce tartar and plaque buildup. Plus, our natural puppy food never uses artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and is packed with a taste your small breed puppy will enjoy.

Package Sizes Available: 4 lbs., 8 lbs.
