Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Small Breed Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Adult
This product is excellent!
We had got my dog a few months ago and he absolutely hated the food we were giving him. He kept picking at it, and getting sick. We kept trying new foods. Finally, we went to PETCO and the woman suggested this food. It was definitely in a price range that would be without our budget so we tried it. Georgie absolutely LOVES it! He hasn't gotten sick once AND he finishes it right away. Keep up the good work!

Mandy & Scruffie love "Ideal Balance"
I have been trying to find a dog food for both of my dogs #Mandy is a 9 year old Beagle# & #Scruffie is a 7 year old terrier mix#. It is very hard to find a dog food that both of them will eat. Normally I would buy 2 different kinds because they just would not eat the same dog food, until I came across Hills Diet Dog food. They had a promotion going on their Ideal Balance dog food, so I decided to buy a bag to see if both would eat it... I'm telling you what, they both surprised me!!! They both eat it and love it, I am blessed to finally find something that the both of my girls like.
Thank you Hill's Ideal dog food!!! :#
your fan forever!!!

I recently started buying the ideal balance small breed food for my dog. It is the only one that I have found that does not upset his stomach. It is also a great price for the quality.

The Only Food I Buy My Dog.
I have been buying this dog food for about a year for my miniature poodle mix and he loves it. It's one of the few foods that doesn't make his stomach upset. It's on the higher price end of dog foods in my opinion but there's always coupons on the website for $5 off so with that, it's reasonable priced.

I had to mix it up for Daisy a bit. She has been on the science diet primarily for the past 3-4 years. We tried the small dog Ideal Balance because I was sent a coupon.
Daisy likes a change occasionally. She seems to easily consume the small bites and she enjoys the aroma when the product has been microwaved a few seconds. It is good for her coat, her coat is shiny. She remains in good health and has a lot of energy. She is a happy active dog.

The Hill's line of dog food was recommended to me by our vet. when our dog was a puppy of just a few months old. She truly enjoys this food and it makes us feel great to know that we are feeding her something w/ high-quality ingredients. We pay a little more to feed her this however, our pet store as well as Hills, will occasionally offer coupons which are quite helpful.

Tina and Bella loves Idea Balance
"I am a member of the #PetFoodCrew and I received Hills Chicken and Brown Rice dried Dog Food from Hill's" I was so excited that I received this great dog food and I am sure Tina and Bella is just as happy as I was . I can't tell you how much Tina and Bella love Hill''s Idea Balance Chicken and Brown Rice dried dog food. What I love is knowing they are both getting a complete and balanced nutritional meal without no Artificial Colors, Flavors or Preservatives, no corn, wheat or soy. It's a great product.

This product is very satisfactory for my dog.
My dog seemed to be a little hungry all the time,with the first dog food we tried. Ideal Balanced diet was recommended and seems to be more filling for him, We are very pleased to know that he is getting Natural Chicken as the main ingredient. He is very active and needs this good diet. Four year old rescue dog. Thank you Hills!

Jackson Pollock was a fussy eater, picky, and yo-yo'd between constipation and diarrhea. Turned out he had gluten allergies. We switched to Hill's Ideal Balance for small breeds (Mini-dox) and he loved it! He also loves the chicken/apple baked treats! Today, he's totally healthy. His lost fur has come back, bowels regulated, coat shines, he's happy and playful. He just celebrated his first birthday!

Better for his digestion
My dog had bad digestive issues when I adopted him. I discovered he had allergies and needed a different diet. I put him on Ideal Balance and in days he was doing much better and was a happier dog. I'd recommend this to anyone with a small dog with a sensitive tummy!

My dog Gus and Ideal Balance
Gus is a sensitive eater. He formerly enjoyed the regular Science Diet but recently we switched to Ideal Balance because I thought he could benefit from the extra nutrition. He loves it!! One benefit is that his coat and skin look so much healthier. He's a happy dog now....which makes me a happy dog parent!

Small Bites and Grain Free a Winning Combo for the Duo
Spark Plug and Jumper Cable both show improvement. Spark Plug is more cautious in chewing dry foods for texture and size and this he is able to eat daily. Jumper Cable will bring his empty bowl for refills. He also gets a lot more jet fuel butt from this to chase his ball or laser light - have even changed over to a long thrower for him to get his run on. Thank you for such high quality products that my dogs can eat and seem to enjoy.

appreciate the quality of the food
My daughter has a Boston Terrier and I have a Chinese Crested/Chihuahua mix. Both of them enjoy this food. Skin and hair condition has improved since being on this food. We like the fact that it is a natural product and has no artificial colors. Never understood the need for those anyway. Keep up the good work making this food.

Dog likes it
I received a full size sample for my dog to try. He seems to like it.

My 4 legged friend really liked his new food. He gravitated to it without having any "special surprises" to lure him into eating it. He even cleaned the bowl in one sitting; unlike how sometimes he parts at different times. His BM remained normal....No Surprises.

Great food and the pups love it!
This has so far been my adult Irish Wolfhounds favorite food over everything else we have tried. Their coats, normally extremely coarse, softened up a little (not too much, IW fur is suppose to be wirey). Vet has consistently given them a overall perfect bill of health and weight. They always eat their entire meal, which is hit or miss for this breed. The 30+ lb bag is a little pricier than I like, but as long as their happy and healthy!

Product is easly digested by my pet
All Hill's dry dog food products are good.
When I had a diabetic dog the vet had him on the special diabetic food.

A real hit with the pups!!
My miniature schnauzer and chihuahua absolutely love this food. What is great is that I make it available to them all the time and they both eat "when hungry" and given the lack of filler and artificial flavor in this food, we are maintaining healthy weight. The schnauzer has trimmed up a bit (needed) and the chihuahua has gained a bit (also needed, shes a picky eater). We've had no abnormal stools since moving to ideal balance and -knock on wood- no throw ups. Schnauzers typically are prone to an upset stomach and mine is no exception when eating other types of food.
I really love the no wheat, corn, soy value here as well. Since being diagnosed as allergic to wheat and also having a soy sensitivity, I have become all too conscious of how those ingredients are used unnecessarily in our own food. There is simply no reason to feed these fillers to our pets if it is avoidable.

I switched my small 6 year old terrier to Ideal Balance Small Breed dog food after I asked my Veterinarian about this new food in his office. The goal was to improve my dogs dry coat, a condition he always had.
After the 1 week food transition period my dogs energy increased quite a bit and a month later his coat became softer and was a less dry and brittle. He really likes his food too. I feed him dry in the morning and Ideal Balance canned food for his evening meal. It works very well for him and I am very happy with this food. He loves his Ideal Balance treat after a good workout too. Definitely a very balanced food with very good results.

Puppy loves it
My puppy gobbles it up. Since she has been on this food she is more active. It gives her the nutrients she needs

It was Healthy
Our dogs didn't seem to like this one too much.Have used this brand many times before but this one they weren't too in love with.I don't think I would try it again.

We trust this product.
We have fed Science Diet product to our dogs for a number of years. We had a rat terrier who aged well eating your food for several years. Our vet was amazed at the energy level she maintained well into her senior years. We now have two small dogs who are eating your food. They are both healthy and active.

My Cavalier gobbled it right up!
When I learned about Hill's and their company story, as well as how their food was made, I was extremely impressed. Since then, I decided that I'd try three different formulas with my baby, Beauty, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I haven't been able to try the Science Diet Small Breed Adult formula, but she's been on the Ideal Balance Small Breed formula for a month now, and she took to it very easily.
The IB Small Breed formula is highly palatable, and perfect for finicky eaters. It has all the right ingredients that all pet parents are looking for. My only con about this food, is that it didn't seem to make Beauty's coat as glossy as the Science Diet Healthy Mobility (Small Bites) formula did.
If Hill's adjusted this formula to where it gave the similar results of the SD Healthy Mobility formula coat-wise, this food would be an all around winner!

This product is healthy, natural, and made in the USA.
I tried this product after a sales representative at my local pet suupply store educated me on the differences from what I was currently using. This product uses chicken as the main ingredient, where most higher end products do not. The source of nutrients come from natural ingredients as well. Also, a factor important to me, is that this product, and all Hills products are made in the USA!
