Hill's Science Diet breed size specific diets are formulated to support the nutritional needs of small, toy and large breed dogs. The nutritional requirements of a small and toy breed sized dog are different to that of a medium or large breed dog. A specific diet tailored to the size of your pet will ensure your dog is receiving all the nutrients they need to for a long and healthy life.
Toy and small breed dogs have unique nutritional needs. These dogs have a high metabolic rate and can burn off a meal in a matter of hours. A small and toy breed dog requires a calorie dense diet to keep up their energy levels. Hill's Science Diet Small or Toy Breed formulas are suited to dogs including the Yorkshire Terrier, Poodle, Pug, and the Toy Fox Terrier.
Every nutrient in your pet’s food should have a specific purpose. From proteins, lipids and carbohydrates to vitamins and minerals, all should be properly balanced, because 'too much' can be just as detrimental to your puppy as 'too little'. If these nutrients are fed in the wrong proportions, nutritional deficiencies or excesses could lead to long-term damage to the puppy’s health and wellbeing.
