Nutro Natural Choice Small Breed Puppy - Chicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Formula is a great choice for puppies that are picky eaters or have sensitive stomachs. Many small breed puppies digest their food more quickly, so they require a different amount of calories and nutrients to encourage appropriate development and growth. They tend to have other sensitivities in their teeth and gums as well as their skin because their bodies are still developing, and this formula can help with all of those.
Nutro Natural Choice does not use artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives, which makes it a safe, natural choice for your puppy. This formula is made with all-natural ingredients such as farm-raised chicken, whole grains (oatmeal and brown rice), and sunflower oil, which all ensure that your puppy's body is absorbing the nutrients it needs and that the digestive system is functioning as it should. It contains the adequate levels of protein, minerals, and other essential nutrients to make sure your puppy is getting everything it needs during this stage of rapid growth. The levels of calcium and phosphorous, combined with the kibble shape, will promote healthy, strong teeth and will prevent the build-up of plaque and tartar. In addition, the Chicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Formula contains omega-6 fatty acid, B vitamins, and zinc, which make the coat healthier and provide extra moisture for more sensitive skin.
