My Princess is a 13 years old mini Maltess and always a picky eater which food had to be small bites. She now only has the four front teeth which is more of a challenge and easier with soft food but not the best choice. Until I tried Freshpet, the texture is easy to cut into small bites and doesn't have the usual smell of soft dog food. The better ingredients also do not leave her so thirsty which seemed to be a side effect of other canned soft foods. My three other Maltese eat dry food but always are willing to make sure she leaves no crumbs behind. They do get some as a treat! Thank you for such a wonderful choice for my old girl!!
