I have a 5 year old 12 lb Yorkie-poo. I feed him Wellness small bites. Is it ok to give him regular sized dog food or should I stick with small bites?
Whether or not you feed small bites has to do with whether or not your small dog has trouble eating normal sized kibble, nothing else. My 12 lb dog has no trouble with the biggest kibbles I have ever found so I don’t worry about kibble size myself. You could try asking for a sample of some food that has larger kibble to try for your dog.
I think smaller kibbles digest better than thicker kibbles since the dog digestive tract is fast.
This is very true. Digestive juices and enzymes can only reach surface areas, the more surface area, the better a kibble is digested. That’s one of the things I liked about Earthborn. The kibble is about the size of a dime and about as thin as a dime too. That’s a lot of surface area, and it broke down very quickly. Actually, it started falling apart when I wet it, before I could hand it to the dogs two minutes later.
There was a post from someone that said his dog did better on the EVO small bites that he had accidentally bought instead of the regular size.
Thank you so much for your thoughts. I’ll stick with small size.
