    I don’t know about wellness super5dry for small breeds.. That’s what I’m thinking of switching my maltipoo to. Right now, I feed him Wellness JUST FOR PUPPY Wet mixed with Castor and Pollux Natural Ultramix for puppy. He loves the mixture! I don’t know what to do, but, it’s almost that time to switch to adult food. I just want to say that on the mixture above, Zeppie’s stools are always nice and firm and right on time, he’s never bloated or has any stomach upsets. He’s energetic, and happy, and bouncy, and his coat is shiny and soft and I know all these amazing aspects are because of the awesome food he’s on. I agree that brands like Alpo, ICKYBANA, Purina, and all those nasty grocery store brands are filled with ground eyeballs, testicles, hooves, ears, and whatever else that’s on the animal except it’s meat!!! Not to mention, the preservatives, the hormones, and they also have something in them called BHT which actually PREVENTS your dog from absorbing the nutrients and minerals (if any exist in those nasty foods)into their system! It’s sick and I’m tired of Big companies taking advantage of ignorant people who are trying to save a buck. I also think that people who take the time to care and love a dog and get it’s shots and buy it’s toys and clothes, and beds, etc should look into what they are feeding their dog. It’s not all the big bad companies fault.. It’s people’s too. So, if you are wondering why your dog has some weird stuff going on.. check your foods ingredients and also check who is manufacturing your dog food, because, they don’t have to be honest about changes they make to the food once they take over a reputable dog food. DO YOUR HOMEWORK and SAVE YOUR DOG.. and your wallet!

    My Havanese was eating Nutro Max, which I guess is a halfway decent food, but I wanted something better. His poo was a little too soft and frequent on the Nutro Max. I am trying to gradually switch his food to Wellness, but he loves it so much that he just picks out the Wellness and leaves the Nutro Max! “Midnight” gives this food 4 paws up and a big tail wag.
