Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a hit! This is a great product at a great cost, compared to some other brands. The advertising they do for this product is exactly what's written on the bag. Real chicken is the first ingredient and has many good-for-you ingredients following! I like the fact is has many vegetables included higher up on the ingredient list and doesn't contain corn as an ingredient. The bag it comes in is an eye-catcher as well, see for yourself! In addition, the calorie count on the mature adult formula is something most people don't know about- older dogs don't need or can't handle the high amounts of protein, but this has a good amount for an older dog and dogs love chicken!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Old Man LOVES This Food!! I have a twelve year old dog that has fairly severe allergies to everything and also is special needs, so I was very picky in finding a food for him. I tried a bag of this and he has done so well and he actually loves it! Owning multiple dogs I have bowls of adult, puppy, and this food out all day and he always decides this is his favorite! His coat is doing much better also and as a twelve year old dog that has had alopecia and allergies all his life he actually has some fuzzy hair coming back! I could not be more happy nor could my little Max!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My finicky Italian Greyhound LOVES her food! I adore my 7-year old Italian Greyhound and have tried so many types of dry food that she'll finally eat when she realizes she's not getting real chicken or green beans. Sometimes she'll go for almost two DAYS holding out!! I always try small breed food because of different needs of a small dog and saw Hill's on sale + two free cans of wet food and thought here goes nothing....boy was I wrong! Being raised as a food grazer she'll eat when she's hungry. She went over and took a bite...and then it was like a new dog...munch munch munch, tail wagging, munch munch munch, tail wagging looking back at me with huge eyes. Holy cow!!! She ate until she was full and was soooo happy!! I love that the ingredients are all natural (I couldn't find a single "taste" additive to figure out why she was nuts over her food....it's actually because it's REAL!!!). That makes me very happy, knowing that she's getting great nutrition, vitamins, fiber and great oils. I know how I feel when I eat well - and within the past 1 1/2 months she NOW has a new little prance in her step and has lost any sluggishness! She's back to walking 2 miles with her tail wagging vs. wanting to go home after 3 blocks. So thank you!! I recommend Ideal Balance to everyone I know! It's seriously changed her demeanor, she's happy, I'm happy and now she sometimes gets chicken and green beans :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is loved!!!! Scruffie (terrier/mix) loves her food, she was eating one day, and she plucked her old food out of the bowl to eat the new chicken and brown rice recipe. It really makes a difference in keeping her full, her skin and coat are shiny and clean and boy the vitamins and minerals are helping her stay full of energy. The only downside is that with older dogs they need the glucosamine to help with their joints. But overall I say that she is really loving her food

Rated 5 out of 5 by from old dog likes it My 15 yr old Boston Terrier has TERRIBLE bad breath, but her teeth are alright. Vet recommended changing to a grain free diet. so I picked IDEAL BALANCE. My other 2 dogs elderly Dachshund and middle aged Boston do not like this food at all, but my little old girl loves it -- & the bad breath does seem to be improving. WOULD LOVE SOME COUPONS FOR THIS FOOD and for HEALTHY MOBILITY which is what my other 2 dogs LOVE. Thanks for making great pet food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My finiky senior Lhasa Apso love it For the holiday of Passover, we do not eat nor do we feed out pets anything that would contain any "leavened" products, ie., yeast, bread and the like. On my hunt for "what will my dog eat?", I came accross this food and low and behold he truly eats it. A miracle! I have incorporated it in his "year round" diet now as well. BTW, is there any way I can get future coupons to offset the cost. We both thank you so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Yorkie My vet recommended Hill Science Diet for my aging Yorkie. She sometimes is very finicky and refuses to eat her DRY food. We do not give her table scraps or human food unless it falls on the floor. Since we have her on Hills Ideal Balance Small Breed, she eats every morsel. Our younger Yorkie is on Hills Small Breed and also eats every morsel. Happy with both products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog loved it Our dog has eaten the same food her entire life. I suppose you could consider her a bit of a food snob. I am a member of the #PetFoodCrew and have received product from Hill's. I'm glad we had the opportunity to try it because our old girl just loved it. I don't know if it was the food or if she was excited for something new but she plowed right through her food bowl.
