Tylee coat is so shinny. –
My chiweenie loves this food and it’s so good for her . I notice how shinny her coat has been as well. I Recommended it to my sister and her senior Bichon has seen the same results.
Perfect for dachshund –
This product was recommended to me by both my breeder and trainer. Never had a problem transitioning – no stomach issues. I also started using the small breed weight control for my other older dogs. They love it.
