Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Slim & Healthy Tender Chicken & Peas Recipe
Dog likes it
I used the canned in addition to kibble. It has an unusually dry texture, but the dog likes it and it is helping to reduce her weight.

Ideal Balance for our 15 year old Catahoula Leopard Dog
Our dog showed up at my husbands shop in bad shape at about 4 months old and living on June bugs, malnourished and abused. We always fed him Science Diet until the "Designer Dog Foods" as I call them came out. So my husband wanted to switch to Blue Buffalo and we did. He began having so many problems but we attributed it to his age. Not the case. We had him at the vet and I stated he seemed to be having stomach problems and I asked the vet what she would recommend to feed him. She said she had 9 pets and has always fed them Science Diet with no problems. Her assistant who also works at a dog shelter said that she had heard so many complaints about Blue, that we were just one of many having problems. Guess what? We switched back and was happy to find out Science Diet and had grain free recipe. He has always been kind of picky eater but gobbles down the Ideal Balance and his stomach problems have cleared up after about two weeks of weening him off of Blue. I highly recommend the Ideal Balance for every dog. Now we have a happy, healthy, energetic 15 year old and we are happy too. We were just about at our wits end. Thank you Science Diet for this wonderful product. Haven't looked yet to see if Ideal Balance comes in dry food also and hoping it does.

My picky dog loved this product!
Although it took a while for him to get used to a new product, my 10 year old Jack Russell enjoyed this wet food! I loved the fact that it was a weight loss item that he would eat (a big problem for my picky Buddy!), and I appreciated the veggies in the food. It made the sample dry food I also tested go down a little easier...just mixed in a spoon of the wet. Your products are always high quality, and I had no qualms about serving this to my dog. Highly recommended!

Dog seemed to enjoy
I think that the stew line looks a little more appetizing then this did. My dog seemed to enjoy it though. Label is very attractive and colorful, I do however wish that the name would stay the same instead of changing every few year.

first time my dogs have tried this product
My dogs are used to homemade food, supplemented by Hill's Ideal Balance dry food. I was surprised and delighted when both dogs seemed to enjoy the taste of the product. I would purchase this food. The consistency is much like other canned pet food, it does not have chunks of meat, rice and veggies like in other Hill's Ideal Balance canned food but this one is the slim and healthy variety. The dogs (2) ate it without any problems and I have a couple of finicky eaters.

Yummy in my Doggie's Tummy!!!
My doggie, Chocolate, LOVED this tasty treat! I gave his 3 servings from the can. Whenever he saw me with the can, you should have seen his tail action! I liked that it did not change the texture of his BM, either.

Slowly making the change..
Once again, another excellent product from Hill's. My Jack Russell mix was hesitant at first, but has now is a complete convert to the new wet and the dry versions of the slim & healthly. She isn't overweight but is 6 years old, still has plenty of energy, which I want her to maintain being active and healthy. I think we're going to stick with this product as long as she likes it.

Slim & Healthy
Another hit with our schnauzer ! It is a great quality dog. food. I could see the vegetables mixed in, and was not watery or all gravy. She loved it, and it will be great at helping control her weight!

Great ingredients, Cairn loves it!
Our Cairn Terrier has problems with certain grains, particularly wheat and he has a tendency to gain weight. This food has real chicken and peas (instead of grains) which is excellent for him. He loves the food (and I like the wholesome ingredients and reduced fat level!)
Works well for him, thank you for a great food.

My Dog couldn't get enough!
I have a greyhound with a thyroid condition that makes it very hard for her to gain weight. She's always a little thin but no matter how much food I offer her she'll only eat so much. The first day I mixed this canned food in with her normal amount of kibble she at all of it! I used 1/4 can at a time over two days and got her to eat more than she normally would. When she was done she looked for more. I would definitely purchase this product!

They loved it.
My 2 Papillons loved this new Slim & Healthy canned food. It didn't last long at the house. I usually give them about a tablespoon of wet food with the evening dry food. They loved it so much that they would give me those eyes that said, "Mommy a little more please" and I didn't have to feel guilty for giving them just a tiny bit more. This is the only canned food aimed at maintaining a healthy weight that I have seen. I was excited to try it the first time and even more happy that the kids loved it.

This is a good product
I tried a can of this product with one of my 4 pets. She knew I was opening a can of food. Once I poured it in the dish she didn't take to eating it right away (like with other Ideal Balance wet dog food).After a moment she started eating the dog food and finished it.
This product didn't hook her right away, but I know it's a good product, as she ate it all.
Thanks HIlls Pet!
