|What do you make of 'SIZE' specific foods?
Do you think there's a valid reason for feeding a "small breed food" vs ???
Been feeding Simply Nourish Chicken & Turkey (grain free) my Bella loves it!
And, it just so happens to get a 5 star rating at http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-reviews/simply-nourish-source /
I just noticed they offer an "adult small breed" food.
Comparing between the two, the "small breed" has, no less that 17% fat vs 15% and the small-breed has Lysine and calcium where as the other doesn't.
Between the two foods,the kibble is the same size.
