I have a shih tzu and he loves his food. He refuses to eat anything else. My grandma would mix dry food in it and he would just eat around it. Because of his size and breed he ends up have problems with his hind legs and I feel like this food improves his strength. He is more playful and happy with his food. He will even let me know when he is hungry he will come up to me and bounce around until I follow him and then he stops in front of the fridge and nods his head.
