Hypoallergenic dog kibble is becoming more and more popular. Traditional hypoallergenic dog food has come in one standard size. While it’s doable for a small dog to eat it, it isn’t exactly easy. Hypoallergenic dog kibble makes it less of a chore for the small dog with allergies to eat.

More and more dogs are being diagnosed with food allergies and sensitivities. That means that the percentage of small breed dogs with allergies and sensitivities is increasing, as well. While small dogs are certainly able to eat traditionally sized hypoallergenic dog food, more and more companies are making hypoallergenic dog kibble to address the needs of little dogs and their cute little mouths. Several companies have started making hypoallergenic food for small breed dogs.
Natural Balance has become one of the most trusted names in specialty diet dog foods. They recently introduced a complete line of hypoallergenic dog kibble for small breed dogs. Their Small Breed Bites line comes in varieties such as Lamb Meal & Brown Rice, Potato & Duck, Sweet Potato & Chicken, and Sweet Potato & Fish.
Although their selection is limited, Blue Buffalo has dipped their toes into the hypoallergenic dog kibble market. Blue Buffalo is a great brand, and while they only have two varieties, I’m hoping to see more. In their Small Breed line, they currently offer Turkey & Potato as well as Lamb & Potato.
Wellness is an up and comer in the hypoallergenic kibble game. They’ve been around for awhile, and while my vet had no personal experience with the brand, we had several clients who used it and raved about it. Their line of Small Breed Complete Health dog food comes in Whitefish, Salmon Meal & Peas, Turkey & Oatmeal, Puppy Turkey, Oatmeal & Salmon Meal, and Healthy Weight Turkey & Brown Rice varieties.
While there are other varieties of hypoallergenic dog kibble out there, these are the ones that I either have personal experience with or that have come recommended by a large number or pet owners. All of these brands offer limited ingredients to go easy on your dog’s GI tract as well as a small size which is much easier for them to eat. If your small breed dog is choking down large sized food, why not switch it over to a hypoallergenic dog kibble that won’t crack its jaw every time it chews.
