Rated 5 out of 5 by light and small I love this food help my dogs mantain a healthy weight July 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best product for my small dogs I have a minpin, boston terrier, and a schnauzer. They all enjoy the taste of Science Diet. I started with the small bites lite and found the toy breed lite. The boston and schnauzer are over 13 yrs olds and still play with the 3 yr old minpin like a puppy. The food keeps them active and their coats shine. I have always trusted Science Diet with all of my puppies and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend any of Sciene Diet's foods. You just have to find the one that fits your pup's needs. May 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Yummy for the Tummy My girls, Mollie and Minnie are dachshunds who have a bit of a weight problem. Minnie is four and has lost almost three pounds so far on this food. She has a few more to go but is looking right fine. Mollie, who is two is more finicky in her food, but she likes this. We haven't lost any weight as of yet, but she will. I would recommend this highly for those who are a bit "fluffier" than they should be. May 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by helps maintain weight I've tried all kinds of dog food for my maltese to keep her weight down. because she would put a little to much weight on for her size with the other dog foods,even though she is very active everyday. I gave the small bites light a try. She loves the small bites and her weight is perfect according to her vet. she is 7 years old and looks like a young dog. I will never change away for science Diet.
