Even though they require less food, toy breeds have fast metabolisms and require a nutritious diet to ensure that they stay as healthy as possible and can enjoy the best quality of life. Lucy Pet Formulas for Life™ nourishes your small breed dog’s total health, naturally. Lucy Pet Formulas for Life™ is guided by science and verified nutritional research, using natural ingredients.

When transitioning your small breed dog to our higher fiber diet, some noticeable changes in stool value may occur. This reflects a healthier digestive tract. We recommend that transitioning to Lucy Pet foods be done over a five-day period.
As your small dog is consuming a higher fiber diet, it’s normal to observe an increased consumption of drinking water on a regular basis. Water is very important to overall health. Be sure that a bowl of fresh water is always available to your pet.
