Appalachian Valley Small Breed Canine Recipe with Venison & Garbanzo Beans

Highly digestible venison and small kibble size make this recipe easy on your small breed dog’s tummy and teeth. Probiotics and prebiotic fiber help support healthy digestion, while roasted venison, along with lamb, egg, duck and ocean fish proteins provide recommended amino acid nutrition. Rich in protein and fat, this recipe provides the energy that active small dogs need.

  • Pasture Raised Venison

    Pasture-Raised Venison – Venison, the number one ingredient in this formula, is rich in nutrients and energy, and a highly digestible source of protein.

  • Ideal for small breeds

    Great For Small Breeds – Rich in proteins and fat, this formula provides the energy that active small breed adult dogs need in a small kibble size that is easy for small mouths to chew.

  • Species-Specific Probiotics

    Species-Specific Probiotics – Healthy digestive and immune systems are vital to the overall health of your pet. Our proprietary K9 Strain Probiotics are developed specifically for dogs and added after the cooking process to ensure viability. Each pound of Taste of the Wild provides 80 million live, active cultures that help support healthy digestive and immune systems.

  • Digestive Support

    Digestive Support – Fiber from garbanzo beans helps support digestive health, while prebiotic fiber from dried chicory root provides fuel for the beneficial probiotic bacteria in the digestive system.

  • Garbanzo Beans

    Garbanzo Beans – Rich in protein, minerals and fiber, garbanzo beans add a host of nutrients to this formula.

  • Antioxidants

    Antioxidants – Legumes and fruits, including peas, lentils, tomatoes, blueberries and raspberries, provide nutrients that help support your dog’s overall well-being, while guaranteed levels of zinc, selenium and vitamin E support the immune system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleared up constant ear infections Our havamalt had several ear infections each year costing hundreds throughout the year in vet bills & medicine. We had always used what the vet recommended, but after 3 years we'd had enough. After a lot of research we felt the Appalachian Valley small breed is what we needed to try. Nothing is in it that would convert to sugar like other brands, and over all it just seemed like a healthier option. Almost two years since we made the switch and our dog hasn't had anymore ear infections. And she has way more energy than ever before! So thankful we found Taste of the Wild!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I found it!! My yorkie was constantly biting and scratching her rear to the point of hair loss. I thought she might have food allergies cause she didn't have fleas. After 3 weeks on it she was hardly suffering at all. After 2 months no more problems with her constant biting on herself. She loves the food and is a perfect size for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's not to love! I've been feeding my Boston Terrior this food since I rescued him. It's great and he lives it. I'd like to thank you for making a great kibble that's both grain-free and affordable...and available in 28lb. Bags. Few companies make small breed formula in the larger bags. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a food my dog loves to eat! Finally, a food my really picky chihuahua terrier loves to eat! I switched to this food after my chihuahua got bored of eating Nutro Ulta. Every time I pour this TOTW kibble, she immediately gobbles it up. I'm glad she finally enjoys eating kibble again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, tiny sized kibble my dog loves! My dog is a Maltese/Yorkie and his little jaws just don't have the power for some of those larger kibble foods. He loves the flavor and I love the fact that it's also grain free. Great product, thanks for remembering the little guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chihuahua and Frenchies Love It! I've been looking for a food that agrees with our Chihuahua and 2 Frenchies and finally found it. I've been researching higher quality foods for a few weeks and decided on TOTW after a few missed gambles with other brands that at least one of my dogs would refuse to eat. The small breed kibble is the perfect size for our Chihuahua (with bad teeth) and the Frenchies seem to prefer the smaller kibble as well. Although we always top their kibble with chopped chicken breast or beef and a little chicken broth to soften the food for the Chihuahua, we were shocked that all 3 dogs ate all the kibble too, which doesn't usually happen. One of our frenchies has multiple food allergies that result in bumps on his skin and has no issues with the Appalachian small breed formula. So relieved to have finally found 1 brand of food all our dogs actually like. This really simplified feeding times! No more preparing 3 different meals and adding supplements since the ingredients supply all the nutrition and prebiotics our other foods were lacking, without the grains and potato that caused the allergies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My little terrier loves it! I got this as a sample to try for my picky little terrier. Sadie really liked it. When she is done with her current food, I will be getting this and adding to her rotation.
