What is the best choice for a small dog (yorkie) dry food. I have been feeding solid gold wee bits and I want to know if there is something healthier.Lewis FParticipant
There are any number of brands you can choose and the ratings of those foods are rated on this site. We have a three month old Cavapoo and have been feeding it Orijen Puppy food. For older dogs, Origen Original is about the same. Champion foods are a bit expensive, but they are rated very well. You can find them on Chewey’s web siteSusan WMember
Two of the dogs currently in my house are considered small dogs – 15 lbs each. I feed them VeRUS. There a several things I like about VeRUS – the food doesn’t smell disgusting like dog food usually smells & the dogs poop more efficiently when eating VeRUS – but one of the absolute best things about it is the size of the kibble. The pieces are small – slightly smaller than a dime. It isn’t so small that they can inhale it or lose it easily. The pieces are mostly flat on 2 sides, so it doesn’t roll around when they (or I) drop it on the floor.
VeRUS has been in business for almost 30 years and has never had a recall, so you know this is a good food.
If you go to their website (which has a lot of great info, including a vendor map!), you’ll be able to fill out a contact form. The VP will email you, start a discussion about your dog, and make a suggestion on which of their foods to try. Then they’ll send you free samples. Free! A couple of little sample bags – about a cup of food in each. If your dog doesn’t like it, then you aren’t out any money.
