Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for my dog I have two pit bulls and one of them has a very sensitive stomach and science diet is the only dog food he can eat. I tried to switch him to a different food (the proper way of mixing the two types together for a week) and my dog started getting very gassy and having diarrhea. He stopped eating and drinking and was very sick. Once I nursed him back to health with chicken/rice and chicken broth, I started introducing the science diet back to him and he has been good ever since. It's the only food that I will keep my dogs on. I just wish it didn't cost so much because with two pit bulls, I go through quite a bit of dog food. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Food yet for big dogs I have 2 large dogs--one is a German Shepherd and St. Bernard mix, and the other is a Bernese Mountiain Dog. Both of them do really well on the large breed lamb and rice. The Bernese probably could eat any kind of food, but the Shepherd mix can only eat lamb and rice because he has a sensitive stomache. I can't stop them from eating each other's food, so I figured just feed them both the same. The cheaper foods simply do not compare. Both dogs will gain weight and their coats do not seem as shiney. I would rather pay more and have them healthy and happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diarrhea Solved When we got our lab 7 years ago we had an awful time with his bowls. He had regular diarrhea. We were told to not let him swimm, not let him eat the grass, that he had an infection, but nothing seemed to work. I spoke to another vet about it and she recommended Science Diet's Lam Meal & Rice because she thought my dog might have a beef allergey and she was right. Just days after starting him on this he was normal and has stayed that way ever since.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My dogs don't care for it We have gotten a lot of Hill Science Dog Food for our 2 Dalmatians, this time I got the Lamb / Rice and they won't eat it. I have tried adding water and some mixables, finally eat because they have gotten hungry enough. You might know I got a 33lb. bag and threw away the receipt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Large Dogs! I adopted my Great Dane/Lab with Rescue & my Veterinarian. He was very ill with ear & skin infection. We could count his ribs. He was very close to having a heat stroke. The rescue and veterinarian gave him medicine and your Hills Science dog food. And so have I he is so happy and healthy. When we take our walks I am asked what dog food do u give him. His coat is so beautiful! I tell everyone Hills Science Diet !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog thinks it is Tasty! I have a picky Australian Shepherd, who I have tried out multiple types of SD food with. I just bought him this food yesterday after seeing another friend use it. He got very excited after he tasted it, and he seems to love it! Science diet has always helped my dogs be at their optimum health, and their coat is always shiny when they eat it. The kibbles also smell good (to me)! When I open the bag I can smell them! I think he really enjoys this food so far. I would recommend it to any other picky pups.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the food for my dogs...but it is spendy. We adopted 2 adult dogs, one with skin problems. After putting him on a good more skin issues. But with 2 large dogs this food is spendy.
