~Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food~
Reason for purchase:
I purchased the Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food after trying the puppy version for our young puppies. I had not seen a food with such small pieces, and having Yorkies , it can be hard to find anything that is easy for them to break down. Most adult dog foods seem to have big balls that my small adult dogs can not wrap their mouths around. When I bought the Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food I was just hoping the bits were as small as the puppy version.
Purchase place and price:
There is a store a state away from me, but only about a 20 minute drive from where I live. It is located on Shove Street in Fall River Massachusetts, and the name of the place is Frugal Franks. It is a discount store. I found the Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food in the back of the store, where the pet supplies are. It was a 4lb bag, and I purchased several at one time. They were only $3.99 each, in Petco it would be three times that price, yet still worth it.
Product information, details and facts:
Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food has tiny bite sized bits made just right for small breed dogs. The pieces are about the width of a pencil eraser, but flat. Making it easy for small mouth dogs to take in the pieces and chew them properly. This is better your your dog and poses no choking risk to them like some larger foods can form. The size is perfect for even the tiniest little mouth the handle. They are also brittle. You can snap one in pieces just by squeezing it a little. This tells me that the food is easy for a small dog to break down and eat.

It has Omega 3 and 6 to promote healthy skin and coat, contains ingredients to help your dog maintain a good and healthy body weight and provides your small breed dog with fairy high ingredients.

The Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food bag can be re sealed by a zip lock type seal on the bag. The bag is very thick and won't rip easily at all. There is a feeding guide on the back that you can use. In my case I have multiple dogs, ones that eat more or less than others, so I just feed them in a small double sided dish three times per day. In my situation, where I can't watch them eat every time, it is best for me to feed them this way so I know each one gets enough of the food. This food comes in a few flavors, but the ones we stick to are chicken stew and beef and lamb.
Another great thing about this dog food is that it does not have a foul odor. I hate the scent of most dog foods, it makes me feel sick when I smell over powering odor of dog food. This food smells subtle to me yet enticing to dogs. That is most certainly a plus. The zipper on the Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food bag actually seems to zip and work better than the ones one the puppy food bags of the same brand. I am sure other people appreciate this attribute, because you need not use a different container for dog food.
Use and recommendation:
At first I had to mix this food in with their old food. That was tough since these are tiny pieces, they kept ending up in the bottom of the dish. But once we fully transitioned it was smooth sailing. This food turned out to be the perfect size for our adult dogs. They have no trouble at all breaking it down and chewing it. With their old food they would gag on it because they would eat fast and choke on the food. This seems to be much easier for them to handle and break down.
The fact that they love the taste of the Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food is a major plus. It makes buying dog food worth while. Honestly I have never seen my adult dogs enjoy a specific food so much. That for me as their owner, is a great thing. It is as important to me that they enjoy what they are eating as it is that they stay healthy. A happy pet is a healthy pet!
Wellness adult health small breed dry dog food is well worth the money. If the discount store I bought this food from stopped carrying this brand, I would go to Petco or some place like that and buy it at full price. My dogs are all thriving on this food, enjoying it and staying healthy while eating it. I honestly see no down side to this dog food. A lot of vets recommend it as well. Mine says it is a great balanced diet for my small breed Yorkie and Yorkie crossed dogs. I highly recommend giving it a try.
