We have a new family member, a 1.5 lb Maltese at 6 months. The Breeder had her on Royal Canin Small Breed but I am not crazy about that. I notice she has some tearing, but mainly concerned about feeding her the best for her small size. Does anyone have any suggestions on dry foods? She does have a great appetite, we do not allow her to free feed. We have three grown smaller Yorkies, they eat Fromm’s Gold Dry food and love it.
Amicus & Natures Logic make small kibbles. I’m sure others will be along to name more.
Wellness has a lot of great products for small breeds with proportionately sized kibbles. My favorite of those products is Wellness Core Small Breed.
Fromm’s makes a small breed as well. Also-Earthborn’s small breed is little. Annamaet Small breed might be, I’ll be ordering it soon to try it out
I second Betsy’s Wellness recommendation, but want to add that not only do they have a small breed line they have a toy breed line, and I believe the kibble size is even smaller for the most tiny dogs. I love Wellness, and Fromm is great, too.
Victor Grain Free foods also have small kibble size and are good for all life stages. And it can be very affordable too.
Nutrisource small/med breed puppy kibble and Nature’s Select Hi-Pro/Puppy are tiny. Also, there is Horizon Amicus for toy breeds. These are the smallest kibbles I’ve fed.

Wellness and Fromm are both on the Editor’s Choice list, as well.
