Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product had a terrific selection of ingredients. Ideal Balance,Small BreedChicken and Brown Rice is the perfect food for dogs. I really like that it doesn't have wheat in it. Dogs just like people often times have trouble with wheat gluten. Westies can suffered from allergies. We have discovered that gluten free (no wheat) has been wonderful for our Pepper. Needless to say if you have a dog with allergies, you need to try this product. Hill's really appears to have found the "Ideal Balance" to help make your dog healthy and happy. It is because of my experience with Hill's products in the past that I am willing to try your new products for my Pepper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Darby loves it I was in Petsmart scanning the dog food isles, just got a toy poodle puppy who was on won't mention the brand but it was puppy chow. I have always had greyhounds for the past 20 years and was empty nest and the opportunity came along to adopt this black toy poodle. Had no idea what to feed him but i knew i wanted something natural, grain free, and made in the USA. The rep from Hills diet was there saw i was having a problem, and gave me a recommendation, for this food. He loves it and I know exactly what he is getting. He eats well, he is healthy and his stools are firm. He is now a year old and on the Adult small breed. Great Value for a Quality food... THANKS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Small Breed Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Puppy We currently feed our two adult dogs Hill's Ideal Balance canned and dry in all flavors. Our new 7 week old puppy (white Malti-Poo named FlutterNutterButter Cookie) absolutely loves his Chicken and Brown Rice dry food. He is thriving, growing astonishingly fast each day, and has terrific energy and stamina. Natural fiber helps healthy digestion and he enjoys mealtime enormously. Hill's Ideal Balance has no corn, wheat, or soy and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives so we are confident that we are helping him grow up healthy. We trust Hill's Ideal Balance completely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good product! 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food for small and medium size puppies I just started my puppy on this time of food and she is a jack Russell puppy and she loves it she eats it very well and it is easier for her to chew. with the other type of dog food she was on she used to have a hard time eating it and she would make a mess on the floor with scraps of leftovers kibbles she didn't finish eating so I would recommend this type of brand of dog food to your small or medium size puppy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! First off, I love the reusable seal! Very easy to seal, no having to worry if the sides match up and keeps the food fresh. My pups both enjoyed this food. As I was switching them over and mixed old food with new, one pup would actually spit out the old dog food and just eat the Hill's. The food smelled better than their usual food as well. I'm sold and highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with this food!! My puppy was on a not so ideal food when I got her and I didn't even want her back on it even long enough to switch slowly! Guess what? No need to worry as Hill's Ideal Balance is grain free so I was able to start feeding her this right away with no stomach upset! She licked the bowl clean and always waits for a refill at dinner time!

Best of all our Vet acknowledges that this food is wonderful for her both body, inside and out! Her coat is so soft and shiny! Thank you for making this product!
