Small Breed

Is your dog a small dog?

Small dogs like Yorkshire Terriers and Dachshunds can weigh between 6 and 20 pounds and stand between 6 and 17 inches tall. When choosing the right food for your small dog, consider these special nutritional needs:

  • Small dogs require more energy per pound than larger dogs. Premium dog foods with high-quality ingredients provide extra energy to keep your small dog healthy and happy.
  • Small dogs can be more susceptible to some health issues including obesity, dental disease and skin and coat conditions. Look for premium dog foods that can help address these issues.
  • Small dogs have smaller mouths and jaws. Try smaller-sized kibble that will accommodate his petite palate.
