Small Breed Complete Health Healthy Weight Turkey & Brown Rice Recipe

With mighty souls but little bodies, your small breed dog has a unique physical composition that creates special nutritional needs. Our Small Breed Healthy Weight Recipe is designed to support the unique health needs of smaller dogs through nutrient-rich whole foods.

  •  Healthy Body Mass- To help maintain lean muscle mass, we use quality animal protein sources such as deboned turkey, chicken meal and salmon meal. We also guarantee levels of L-Carnitine as it helps the body utilize fat.
  • Up to 50% Longer Life Spans- With a life expectancy of up to 20 years, small breed’s life-systems need nutritional support to stay strong. Our Complete Health Recipe is packed with antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies, vitamins and minerals to help support cellular health.
  • Smaller Digestive Tracts- Small breeds need to get lots of nutrition from the little portions they consume. We include live, naturally-occurring microorganisms to support digestive health and we ensure optimal nutrient absorption through our Digestool® confirmation studies – less nutrients in the stool, means more nutrients in the body.
  • Reduced Fat & Calories- Along with exercise, less active dogs can achieve their ideal weight with 26% less fat and 10% fewer calories than Wellness Small Breed Complete Health Adult Turkey & Oatmeal Recipe.
  • Hip & Joint Health- We add sources of glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate to help maintain hip and joint health.
  • Also great for Small Breed seniors with slowing metabolism.

Transitioning to Wellness: It is important to slowly transition your dog from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to the new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness by day 7.

Determining Feeding Portions: Looking at the chart below, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Wellness believes in feeding dry and wet food in combination whenever possible to help increase the level of water in your dog's diet.

Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust as needed.
