Small dogs easily adapt to life indoors, such as in a family home. They bring out the best in us and they're ideal for sharing homes with young children or elderly people.
Despite being small in size, they are full of energy and love to play. The majority are usually loving and enjoy being carried in your arms or on your lap.
Thanks to their small size, mini dogs can take part in all family activities because they are easy to take with you. Whether it's on public transport or on holiday, it’s easier to travel with a mini dog.
Did you know that the metabolism of mini dogs differs to that of larger dogs? Or that they tend to develop tartar? Here, we tell you how to feed and care for them in order to keep them in optimum health and full of energy.
Small dogs benefit from tailored food that also takes care of their dental health. Discover how Ultima Mini recipes are specifically designed to meet their nutritional needs and help keep them in optimal health and thriving.
Our recipes are made with high-quality ingredients that combine sources of animal protein, vegetables, rice and wholegrain cereals in a balanced way. Furthermore, they are tailored to their ages and specific needs.
Now all of Ultima Mini products are made with natural prebiotics that help to maintain a balanced gut flora in your dog, which in turn benefits their natural defences.
No added sugars, colourants or preservatives
Ultima Mini recipes contain the proteins, vitamins and minerals necessary to cover all the nutritional needs of your small dog. Also, they help to reduce the build-up of plaque thanks to a combination of minerals, aloe vera and the special size of the kibble.
Mini dogs have a predisposition to develop tartar because bacterial plaque and calcium accumulate more quickly in their small mouths. Tartar build-up can have medium and long-term consequences such as bad breath, gum inflammation, or digestive problems.
Another way to care for your small dog's dental hygiene is with the size of their kibble. The new kibbles in Ultima Mini are larger, which has a mechanical cleaning effect on the teeth, together with minerals and aloe vera helping to reduce tartar formation.
