What food do small dogs eat?
Small dogs can eat any of the recipes offered by the Naturextra and Markus-Mühle brands for their larger counterparts. The only difference is the size of their jaws.
Fortunately, our pet food brands are aware of this and have designed a pellet size that suits them. The Mini Pellet is smaller than the Standard Pellet, making it easier for them to chew, digest, and properly assimilate all the nutrients.
Furthermore, the protein and fat levels are adequately balanced, taking into account the size and energy demands of the animal.

Dog food: brands and benefits
At LaraVital, we offer the Naturextra brand for small dogs. These recipes contain high-quality ingredients such as animal-derived proteins, healthy fats, fibers, and other essential nutrients to ensure the well-being of your canine companion.
Moreover, many of these brands add beneficial ingredients such as swamp clay for better intestinal health, salmon oil for a shiny coat, and natural antioxidants to strengthen the immune system.
For which dogs are these foods recommended?
Small dog foods are specially designed for miniature breeds or those that do not exceed a certain weight in adulthood.
Breeds like the Chihuahua, Yorkshire Terrier, Pomeranian, among others, will greatly benefit from these foods. Additionally, these foods are often recommended for dogs with dental or chewing problems, as their size makes ingestion easier.
What is the difference between food for small dogs and that for large breeds?
The only difference you'll find in Naturextra foods is the size of their pellets.
How do I know if the food I'm giving to my small dog is suitable?
It is essential to observe your dog. If they have a shiny coat, energy, stable weight, and firm and regular stools, the food is likely suitable. However, if you have any doubts, it is advisable to consult a veterinarian.
How often should I feed my small dog?
Although it depends on the brand and the veterinarian's recommendations, generally, small dogs are fed 2 or 3 times a day due to their fast metabolism.
