- My soon to be 9 yo toy poodle that is very over weight. She has been on Authority Senior Small Bites for the last year and a half almost 2 years. Since my baby was born she has been cleaning up after him and when I put her away to keep her from eating his food she acts like she is dying! She gets 1/3 cup of food 2x a day and she acts like she is just starving.... I've looked at the makeup of the food, and it's good food. But I'm needing something to help her loose weight. I try walks. But she just cant go for very long.
