Rated 4 out of 5 by from A GOOD CHANGE OF TASTE! I started buying this for our rescue pup, Tiffy, when the vet suggested changing dog foods for a test to see if it would help her allergies. She does seem to love it although I think the allergies are seasonal, due to the pollen, ragweed in the air. I always buy SCI DIET for both our dogs...Mindy is on prescription. Your brand is recommended by our vet, so we have used it since day one, with all of our dogs! I think the lamb is a healthy alternative to chicken, and the rice seems to be less apt to cause stomach upsets or irritation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Term User We had a Shih Tzu that lived to 17 years of age and always fed her Hill's Science Diet dry food. We started out with the Hill's puppy food, then the lamb and rice, and finally to a Hill's Prescritpion Diet because of joint mobility problems. We now have another Shih Tzu that we started out again with Hill's puppy food and now that she is a two year old dog, she gets Hill's Lamb and Rice food every day. She has a smooth coat of hair that is full and soft, which is due in large part to her diet. We are firm believers in feeding our dog the best, and Hill's is the only brand we use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog's favorite! My 5 year old MinPin has eaten onlyScience Diet her entire life. She prefers Lamb Meal and Rice. Science Diet is a great value for a 5lb. bag. We had to buy another food when we left ours at home on vacation. Poor Izzy ! She ate hardly anything and had an upset stomach all weekend. She was happy to get home and have some good food. She has even learned to open the cabinet where her food is stored, and scratch the bag when she wants more. Science Diet dry food is nice and crunchy, which helps to keep her teeth clean, and not messy like some wet foods. I don't plan to feed her anything else - ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs really loved this product! I had only thought of Hill's Science Diet and Hill's products as only for dogs with health problems and the food was not very tasty having had one dog that had to eat Hill's R/D wet food and did not particularly care for it. I was surprised that my dogs loved this product. They gobbled up every bite and wanted more. So I continued to buy this item and they continue to love it. I trust Hill's to produce a balanced and quality pet food and they have not disappointed. I like the wide variety of items offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky dog likes his Hills Science Diet I must say that I am pleasantly surprised that my dog likes Hills Science Diet dry dog food (the Lamb and rice) He is pretty finicky and won't eat most brands. My best friend said that her dogs wouldn't eat Science Diet dog food but I decided to give it a shot anyways and Yes my dog loves it! I am now on my 3rd bag and am very pleased. I like knowing that my dog is getting a nutritious meal and I like that I can get it in a non chicken formula since I suspect my dog has a sensitivity to chicken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would not use anything else! When I started shopping for a corgi puppy, I visited several pet care centers after talking to my vet about foods. I read packages and talked to clerks, but I decided to go with what the vet recommended. (My budget is limited and initially I thought Hills Science Diet would cost me more than most other foods, so I had checked other brands.) Chiquita Bonita, "Chickie" has been a great addition to the family. As a puppy we started with the lamb and rice formula. I chose it over others because of the smell. I believe the smell of the food helps my dog smell good too. Her breath and body have no offensive odor and she seldom gets a bath upon the advice of the vet. When she was ready to move to adult food, we stayed with the lamb and rice formula in small bites. She still loves the taste and eats eagerly. The vet is very pleased at her weight as corgis have a tendency to get pudgy. Hills Science Diet has made it easy to keep her at a safe healthy size. Her coat is sleek and shiny, her eys are bright and she is a picture of health. Chickie is now 5, and when it is time to move to food for less active dogs, we will stay with HSD because I can't imagine any other food is better for her. Thanks for your attention to detail and the good health of pets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own 3 very different dogs and they all agree on your product. I own a 3 year old miniature chihuahua, 6 year old whippet, and a 8 year old chow mix bread, all three are very picky and after many years of trying different brands, flavors, wet and dry foods, this is the first brand I've found that all three dogs like and I like the quality. I've thrown away or given away more dog food than some people will ever buy. It's great to know I can finally buy one high quality brand that my very finicky dogs enjoy. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love it I have four adult dogs; three bassets and a border collie mix. These guys love their small bites lamb. It is easy to digest, and the dogs greet each day like a special occasion. They woof it down, do their business and then relax for an hour or so. No enticement is needed. They love the food. In fact the food has to be securely stored in order to avoid the dogs overeating. If they could rate the food, surely they would give it a 5+.
