Here are some quotes from reviews.
My dog is a very picky eater about 12 lbs. I don’t know if it’s the size of kibble, but he eats it no problem and his stools are solid. The only thing is it is on the expensive side.
Luckily I discovered V-Dog mini bites. I asked my vet and she said that Mini-Bites could be a good option for Ruby (if she would eat them). To my relief, Ruby LIKES the V-Dog mini bites and readily eats her meals again. The small bites make it easier for her to eat as she also has few teeth left.
My only complaint is that the food is pricey for such a small bag. On a very positive note, this food has been the best thing ever for my smallest dog. She is only three pounds and the same food in the bigger bites was not processing as well in her system.
