I feed Pro Plan Sport to Poppy and she is doing great on it. She was an OK eater on her previous food but is CRAZY about this one. It does not have the shreds in it like the one you are feeding but the kibble is really tiny. Two pieces fit on a dime. Kibble size was not a concern for me because Poppy is a standard, but I was surprised at how tiny they are.

She also does not drink any more water on it than on her previous food. Her coat, which was alway very good is now AMAZING.

I am not worried that it has salt added to the formula. We all, humans and dogs, need some salt in our diets. Purina does all the right testing of their formulas so I am sure they are providing a proper balance of ingredients in their formulas.

It is an all life stages food and can be fed to tiny dogs as well as larger ones.

You might consider trying this formula. Just a thought.

That is wonderful. I tried the duck, which he eats begrudgingly, and just bought a bag of the chicken, which he doesn't seem to like at all. So for now, I'm sticking with the beef.

About Pro plan, itís rated average but popular at the moment because of the DCM controversy. Pro Plan is a good choice because it has no potatoes or legumes and is not grain free. Also, many breeders and owners have been using it for years and years without problems.
When we visit my dad, I have a tablespoon worth of a veggie mix that also has some brown rice. We mix that withe whatever protein we're eating. If we have none, I cook up about 1/4 cup of 90% ground beef. He wolfs that down. Happily.

While he eats the Stella and Chewy, it's not happily. I'm starting to consider cooking myself and using something like Just for Dogs for the extra nutrition to make a balanced meal.

I'm also concerned that he almost exclusively eats beef. He'll have chicken if we're at dad's, but he goes nuts for cooked ground beef.

I think my breeder was thinking of switching to pro plan. He said it was getting too expensive to continue feeding raw. I only give a little bit of the Organix kibble every now and then. He really is thriving on the freeze dried raw - even he he prefers something else.

Thanks much. If I see a sample somewhere, I'll try it. The pieces are about the same size at the Castor & Pollux small breed. Yes, they are quite tiny, and my little guy has to crunch them even though they're so small. I think he prefers the softer pieces of the Stella and Chewy lil bites.
