We’ve created a 3 part blog series discussing our new product line, Tiny Dog Food Bars. Today’s entry, Why Tiny Dogs need different nutrition, will describe some of the health challenges tiny dogs face and how our food line can help address some of those challenges. Let’s get right to it.
We’re defining Tiny Dogs as those weighing 1-5 lbs. While dogs weighing 6 or 8 lbs. are small dogs, this food bar program is designed to specifically nourish pups weighing 1-5 lbs. Our Small Food Bar program is a perfect option for your 6-15 lbs. pup. Learn more about that program here.
Many tiny dogs suffer from Congenital Portosystemic Shunts. The presence of these shunts can affect the proper function of the liver. Dr. Karen Tobias has written a great piece on this condition. You can find it here.
We created our tiny food bars to maintain sugar and protein levels throughout the day. Our portion sizes allow for more frequent feeding to keep your pup’s body in balance and to avoid low sugar levels or decreased behavior due to energy crashes.
Our tiny food bars are freeze dried raw, which allows for the natural cleansing of your pup’s teeth. The enzymes found in raw food naturally eat away any plaque that may form.
Our Tiny Food Bars do not contain fillers so more nutrition will be absorbed into your pup’s body. This will help reduce the risk of diarrhea and will help keep bones strong.
