    Hello - my 1 year old Papillon weighs 1.7kg and so far the only kibble I can get him to eat is Hill's Science Plan light Adult 1-6 as the kibble is teeny tiny. I have tried others but the pieces are too big for him and he struggles to chew it and often leaves it. The Hill's he eats so I thought that was good as at least he eats it all. Friends have said that this is not a good food for a young small breed so I just wanted to ask if anyone else has found a very small kibble to can recommend another brand to try. Thank you

    ps. he does have some meat for his evening meal as well as the kibble

    Any of pets at home own brands do small breed food which is really small. I have a 2kg chihuahua on fishmongers finest small breed and the pieces are tiny

    I'm feeding Platinum, the pieces are small and chewy rather than dry.

    Thank you I did see that when I was looking for a brand - semi moist might be an idea

    I feed Eden. Using their small kibble at the mo. Measured a random piece for you - 10mm x 8mm.
    Heidi likes it soaked and mashed with a bit of Butcher tinned tripe wet food.

    I use piccolo made by canagan for my toy poodle Puppy from pets corner, it is very tiny kibble as it’s specially made for small breeds. He also has butchers puppy perfect trays as well. I give them separately not mixed together.

    Fish4Dogs toy breed kibble is absolutely minuscule pieces, like 1/3 the size of small cat kibble type size.
