Rated 5 out of 5 by from All our Irish Wolfhounds love it! I have had multiple dogs and puppies through the years thanks to having my own and also fostering. I always put them on Science Diet! I had a cocker spaniel that suffered from constant seizures for 9 years of her life that had different vets unable to find the cause. Change her food to Science Diet and seizures disappeared for her remainder surviving years! Ever since then my three adult Irish Wolfhounds have been on SD Ideal Balance. They love the taste, their health is perfect and their coats are gorgeous and healthy. Its the perfect protein level for them! My 9 week old Irish Wolfhound puppy is on another type of Ideal Balance as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IDEAL is the KEY word............. Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Large Breed Natural Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe Adult dog food has been the answer. So many dog food many choices. I can finally now say I have found the IDEAL brand. I have 2 very finicky eater, one with a sensitive stoomach. It;s always been a challenge to find a food that satisfies both, this brand does.............with a vengence! My dogs truly enjoy eating now, and the stomach doscomfort is no longer an issue. I've noticed increased activity, shinier coats and a playfulness that neither had before. Thanks Hill's...................for giving my furry friends, the Ideal choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste, not too large of pieces We were feeding our 1 year old Saint Bernard Hill's Science Diet Healthy Mobility for it's great ingredients (glucosamine, fatty-acids...) up until a week or so ago. We had been noticing that he wouldn't eat it without being encouraged to or if we put a little water on it. We decided to try this instead and thought maybe a change would be good. It has smaller pieces than his previous brand which we think is great and it must taste great because he doesn't hesitate to eat now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dog food I changed my dog's food about 5 months ago because my dog stopped eating. I found Ideal Balance chicken and rice (mature adult) on sale at my pet store. My dog loves the taste. It also smells good. I have a 7 year old black lab and her hair is very soft and shiny after switching to this food. She also has more energy. I like that it is all natural. Great dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Yellow Lab Loves This Food I have a 4.5 year old Yellow Lab named, Duke. He was eating a competitive product for a few years and had skin, hair and digestion problems. I switched him to Ideal Balance Large Breed one year ago and he loves it. His skin and coat are as beautiful as ever and he has also slimmed down to a more ideal weight. I now recommend Ideal Balance to all my family and friends with pets. It has been great for our big guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I have a 12 year old border collie/welsh terrier. He has grown up on Science Diet food since he was a puppy. He has never been sick one day of his healthy, playful, life!! He loves the taste of all the stages and we have been pleased with his healthy diet. I also have a 15 year old cat who has also only had Science Diet cat food and has also never been sick! We would recommend this product to any pet owners!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for my labrador. We rescued our Yellow Lab about 5 years ago. He was 25 pounds underweight. He needed love and attention as well as nutritional food. We started him immediately on Hills Ideal Balance and have had him on the same food for the entire time he has been with us. He wakes up every morning and races to the food bowl and cannot wait for breakfast. And does the same in the evening. He is also prone to having seizures. Certain treats and other environmental factors attribute to those. We have found that the Hills Ideal Balance had given him nutrition without causing any additional seizures thankfully! Now we don't ever stray from the food. Most of his treats consist pieces of his dog food since we know it is safe for him. Riley is loved and healthy partially due to this food!
