Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent My Irish Wolfhound puppy loves this food more than anything I've tried in the past with him. His coat is so soft and luckily he's not as gassy! The only issue is that it isn't available in a 30+ lb bag which I need with a 110lb 9 month old!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great start to a great life! Unfortunately I do not have a puppy so was unable to personally use the puppy formula, but I paid it forward and donated the puppy formula to my local humane society where I volunteer. I CAN personally attest that the puppies were absolutely THRILLED with the puppy food, and though all puppies love to eat, I was satisfied with the knowledge that these babies were receiving the highest quality puppy formula available without fluff or fillers and were well on their way to a healthy life! Thank you so much, Hill' never disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty These Ideal Balance foods are made with such high quality ingredients -- chicken, pureed or dehydrated vegetables, whole grains. My dog enjoys the taste and licks her bowl! Her stools have no bad odors. This is wonderful food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hill's Ideal Balance dog food is awesome. My Puppy is a picky eater but after I stared adding it with her usual puppy food she couldn't get enough. I love that my dogs enjoy your food and I can't wait to try more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't recommend more highly. My German Shepard has been eating this food since we got him at 8 weeks. He's now almost a year and we've had nothing but great results with this food. While I never thought spending the extra money on premium food was worth it, someone explained it to me as regular dog food is like feeding your pup fast food. While premium dog food is like eating healthy. It makes your pup feel better, have more energy, maintain a healthy weight, and prevent against illness. After adopting another pup from a shelter who had numerous skin conditions which lead to loss of hair and him being tired and worn down all the time, I know that this food has definitely helped him grow his hair back and become healthy again. we're so happy with the results hills has provided to our pups. Also try their treats, our dogs love those too!
