Little Kibble for Better Nutrition
Lucy Pet Formulas for Life™ is formulated with the proper nutrition for small breeds. 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. We’re not based on trendy fads or marketing hype. We actually care about what’s best to help your pet live a long healthy life.

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.
