Rated 4 out of 5 by from Energetic dog I switched my small 6 year old terrier to Ideal Balance Small Breed dog food after I asked my Veterinarian about this new food in his office. The goal was to improve my dogs dry coat, a condition he always had. After the 1 week food transition period my dogs energy increased quite a bit and a month later his coat became softer and was a less dry and brittle. He really likes his food too. I feed him dry in the morning and Ideal Balance canned food for his evening meal. It works very well for him and I am very happy with this food. He loves his Ideal Balance treat after a good workout too. Definitely a very balanced food with very good results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mandy & Scruffie love "Ideal Balance" I have been trying to find a dog food for both of my dogs #Mandy is a 9 year old Beagle# & #Scruffie is a 7 year old terrier mix#. It is very hard to find a dog food that both of them will eat. Normally I would buy 2 different kinds because they just would not eat the same dog food, until I came across Hills Diet Dog food. They had a promotion going on their Ideal Balance dog food, so I decided to buy a bag to see if both would eat it... I'm telling you what, they both surprised me!!! They both eat it and love it, I am blessed to finally find something that the both of my girls like. Thank you Hill's Ideal dog food!!! :# your fan forever!!! Pepper, Mandy and Scruffie #phoenix az

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Food for my dog I love the Ideal Balance dry dog food for small breeds. It's the only pet food I will give my dog. A couple of times in the past, I've run out of this dog food and couldn't make it to the pet store for a few days due to my work schedule, so I picked up a couple of cans wet dog food at the grocery store and I could tell that it didn't sit right with her. She experienced stomach issues,her coat started to shed badly and she moved sluggishly. When I returned her to the ideal balance dry dog food, she had more energy, her coat stopped shedding and was noticeably much happier. Thanks Ideal Balance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Bites and Grain Free a Winning Combo for the Duo Spark Plug and Jumper Cable both show improvement. Spark Plug is more cautious in chewing dry foods for texture and size and this he is able to eat daily. Jumper Cable will bring his empty bowl for refills. He also gets a lot more jet fuel butt from this to chase his ball or laser light - have even changed over to a long thrower for him to get his run on. Thank you for such high quality products that my dogs can eat and seem to enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where has this food been all my dogs life? This food is beyond amazing. First off you can't beat the price. You are getting top of the line quality food just without the high price tag. Me and my dog both love that fact it contains so many fruits and veggies and it is healthy. My precious girl Mattie cannot get enough of this food. From the very first day I put it in her bowl she has eaten more of it than any other brand of dog food I have tried. I have also noticed a difference in her health. She would vomit sometimes after eating, she seemed to have digestive problems. Ever since I started her on this food, she has not gotten sick once. She also looks trimmer and her coat is luxuriously shiny!! This food is a must have for you pet!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Cavalier gobbled it right up! When I learned about Hill's and their company story, as well as how their food was made, I was extremely impressed. Since then, I decided that I'd try three different formulas with my baby, Beauty, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I haven't been able to try the Science Diet Small Breed Adult formula, but she's been on the Ideal Balance Small Breed formula for a month now, and she took to it very easily. The IB Small Breed formula is highly palatable, and perfect for finicky eaters. It has all the right ingredients that all pet parents are looking for. My only con about this food, is that it didn't seem to make Beauty's coat as glossy as the Science Diet Healthy Mobility (Small Bites) formula did. If Hill's adjusted this formula to where it gave the similar results of the SD Healthy Mobility formula coat-wise, this food would be an all around winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real hit with the pups!! My miniature schnauzer and chihuahua absolutely love this food. What is great is that I make it available to them all the time and they both eat "when hungry" and given the lack of filler and artificial flavor in this food, we are maintaining healthy weight. The schnauzer has trimmed up a bit (needed) and the chihuahua has gained a bit (also needed, shes a picky eater). We've had no abnormal stools since moving to ideal balance and -knock on wood- no throw ups. Schnauzers typically are prone to an upset stomach and mine is no exception when eating other types of food. I really love the no wheat, corn, soy value here as well. Since being diagnosed as allergic to wheat and also having a soy sensitivity, I have become all too conscious of how those ingredients are used unnecessarily in our own food. There is simply no reason to feed these fillers to our pets if it is avoidable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is excellent! We had got my dog a few months ago and he absolutely hated the food we were giving him. He kept picking at it, and getting sick. We kept trying new foods. Finally, we went to PETCO and the woman suggested this food. It was definitely in a price range that would be without our budget so we tried it. Georgie absolutely LOVES it! He hasn't gotten sick once AND he finishes it right away. Keep up the good work!
