Dog food

My dog loved this food. I liked the ingredients and how it’s specifically made for certain types of breeds. The food looked natural. It didn’t have a strong smell. My dog gobbled it up as I fed her. My dog is kind of picky. But she enjoyed this food. Didn’t affect her stools in any negative ways.

Made my dog sick

I tried to feed this to my 9 year old Pomeranian and he threw it up. I'm not sure if it's because he is a different breed but I ended up tossing this dog food out. I have tried Royal Canin once before and the same issue had happen.

The Maltese Adult Dry Dog Food was a hit with my dog. He ate every bite and wanted more. Royal Canin has always came highly recommended from friends and we weren't disappointed. the kibble was a nice size with no artificial colors which I love. The Nutritional value is pretty good also. My dogs coat has become nice and shiny again and.his breath doesnt smell bad anymore.

My dog loved it !!!

Got this for our Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) and she loves it. The other food we were feeding her gave her horrible breath and this dog food has helped a lot with that. She is getting older and doesn't have as many teeth as she used to, so she needed a dog food that was smaller and easier to chew, so this is perfect.

Happy dog

The diva normally only eats wet food, so I was truly shocked when she actually ate this food. She seemed to truly enjoy it. When I first received the bag, I brought it to her and she was eating it out of my hand. The big dog tried to get close, she wasn't having it.

Great for my dogs coat

My Maltese really seemed to enjoy this food and after a couple weeks her coat looked healthier. She even had more energy. I really enjoyed how much she enjoyed the flavor and how she seemed to be like her puppy self.

My dog loved it

My dog ate all of this food quicker than any of her other foods, I did not give five stars because the nutritional value of this food is not very good. All in all if your dog is a lucky water like my mine, this food will do the trick if getting them to eat.
