Small breed dogs
Small dog breeds are usually defined as weighing less than 22 pounds and standing shorter than 16 inches. Some of the most popular small breed dogs are: French Bulldogs, Toy Poodles, Dachshunds, Corgis, Pugs, Pomeranians, Beagles, Yorkshire Terrier and Chihuahuas.
Nutritional needs of small breed dogs
Small breeds have a faster metabolic rate than large breeds. It basically means that their energy requirement per kilogram of body weight is much higher.
But at the same time, small breeds have a small stomach which prevents them from consuming large meals.
For those two reasons, small breed dogs need nutrient-dense foods, with a higher calorie content. To support their health, it's important to feed them foods that are specifically designed for their nutritional requirements in small portions.
