Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite for my Papillons My three dogs love this! The only complaint is that most pet stores only carry the small bag. Instead I would buy on line especially when they offer free shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food for tiny dogs!! I was buying the Yorkshire Terrier Adult Royal Canin and my dog was just not eating it much. She is 7 years old and only weighs four and a half pounds... I was told about this adult Tiny Kibble so we tried it. My Bella LOVES it!!! She is also finicky but when she sees this bag, she barks and lays beside it to get some!! I think the size helps also. She doesn't like big pieces of food and the kibble size is perfect. Thank you for making such an awesome tasty product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I have nothing negative to say about this product. My dog is 3 pounds and has a tiny mouth. The morsels are perfect size for her and she loves the flavor. I have tried other foods that say "tiny bites," but they never seem to be small enough or the taste seems to be unappealing to her. I always go back to this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This food was recommended by a vet who only fed her animals Royal Canin. It stays fresh a long time, my chihuahua mix loves it. She has never seemed tired of or bored with It & it can be given dry or mixed w/some warm water to make a gravy like mix. She's stayed in good health for the 10 yrs we've had her, is still energetic and stays at a good weight for size. Her coat is very shiny and she has no skin issues. She doesn't pass a lot of stool either. We've tried other "healthy" dry foods periodically and none compared. Her coat and energy level would decline. Her stool was bigger, more frequent and had a putrid smell in comparison so back to Royal Canin and not planning on trying any other food anymore. It's also cost effective. A bag lasts us a long time and I believe has helped keep her out of the vet's office other than for routine annual exam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My chihuahuas are so picky and after trying every type of dog food possible, I was reccomend this X small Royal canin and to my surprise they loved it, I haven't looked back, esp my smallest dog stinky who has had gland problems most of her life, with monthly vet visits, since introducing her to this has completely helped her glands, so to me this has been a life safer,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food my finicky Maltese will eat. Lil Princess Mia is so finicky, I have to stir the food, set it in the microwave, then give it to her before she will have anything to do with it. My husband says she is spoiled. I have to agree. But, it is the only food she will eat, and the only way she will eat her food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Pomeranian loves her very much... One year old Pomeranian is eating for about two months x small Adult dry food. It has healthy skin and is very energetic. It would have been great if glucosamine sulphate and candorite supplements were made.
