The kibble size for smaller dogs is smaller than regular dog food. This is because they have smaller mouths and jaws and are easier for their gastrointestinal systems to digest. On the other hand, medium and large dogs usually have larger kibble because their jaws can handle the size of the food.
What stage is my dog in?
Using your dog’s (projected) adult weight, determine if they are considered small, medium, or large in size. The transition age associated with their adult weight is the age at which they transition between puppy and adult, or adult and senior (as the case may be).
