Rated 5 out of 5 by msy1 Ideal Balance, this "flavor" in particular is relished by my 5-year-old Chihuahua mix.
Ingredients in this food are of high quality and healthful. In addition, the taste seems to be very palatable to my dog. It is important to me that the food I provide for my little dog is well balanced and I believe that this product meets that criteria. The kibble version also contributes to her dental health and, perhaps most important, she loves it!

Have two extremely picky dogs - have tried many brands with little success. HILLS IDEAL BALANCE seems a perfect food, scientifically proven to be the most healthy diet -and is obviously yummy tasting according to my terrier and poodle. They enjoy mealtime - their digestive systems are now stabilized - and our family couldn't be more pleased. Would love more flavors and choices ... and please continue to offer savings on every purchase. We are very happy to be a part of the HILLS family.

my dog has allergies to grain and chicken , so the vet told me to switch her to grain free and no chicken so i chose the ideal balance salmon and potato product and she is doing great. she loves the glazed bites and her allergies are calming down.i recommend this product to anyone that has an animal with allergies.

I have always fed Science Diet to my dogs. It is a great dog food and this line is no different. I mix both wet & dry for him. He is ten years old and you wouldn't be able to tell it. Science Diet has kept him happy and healthy! He loves the taste and that keeps me happy!
Thank you Science Diet.

We use the grain free only. Sometime get the chicken but should stick with Samon because our schnitzel likes it the best. Use the canned variety when he is feeling poorly.

I feed my dog a variety of foods (approved by vet) and Ideal Balance salmon and sweet potato is one of his favorites. He must think he is a cat because he loves the salmon flavor best. He reacts positively to the product and have had no issues or problems. Yeah!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Acostello84 This is a great dog/cat food
I feed the salmon and potatoe to my dog who has skin issues and it seems to help. She is also a very picky eater and loves the taste. My cats also like the adult chicken formula. They don't overeat anymore because I believe they actually feel and stay full compared to other brands I have tried. They no longer beg for food in between feedings.

So, if your pets could talk to you what would they say? When it comes to food, we often assume we're listening when we watch them react to the first bite, wag their tail, guard the bowl as other dogs approach, and of course the time it takes to empty the bowl. I introduced this food to what I perceived to be lukewarm results. It carried a stronger smell than most Ideal Balance flavors we've tried and unfortunately, didn't get the famed "empty bowl in one sitting" that my schnauzer is known to do with another of her favorite ideal balance flavors. Still, we had no unusual side effects, stomach aches or upset stomachs and I know the food is packed with nutrition that keeps my girls coats healthy, eyes bright and energy levels up. We're an Ideal Balance family. Try this if your pet relishes fish flavors.

My Chihuahua Alice has never been picky about food. Which has caused her to get severely over weight. After tryin a sample of Hills I deal balance from crowdtap tap. She won't eat anything else. She has been losing weight and playing more. it's worth the money just to see her healthy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel1534 Hill's Ideal Balance!
My two dogs, a Bichon Frise and a Shih Tzu, loved Hill's Ideal Balance Grain-Free Salmon and Potato recipe. My Shih Tzu is very picky like most Shih Tzus can be. She gobbled this right up. We went grain-free in my household a couple years ago and it has been great ever since. My dogs seem like they feel much better. Honestly! They have an extra pep in their step. I have loved the Hill's brand for years after my Vet recommended it for my dog's weight loss. He's slim and trim now and we're still using Hill's to maintain his weight. I was very happy with the product and so were my dogs! I am a member of the #PetFoodCrew and have received product from Hill's

I love how Hills Science Diet isn't loaded with corn like other dog foods. Just good healthy ingredients. I have three dogs and they all enjoyed it. The kibble size makes it easy for dogs of all sizes to eat it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shammy Stopped the itch!
My PWD, Echo has had an itch problem for several months now. On her right side just behind her shoulder blade is her itchy spot. She has scratched so much that most of the hair has been pulled out. I tried fish oil supplements, special shampoos and the expensive boutique foods and nothing helped her itchy spot. I had to put a sweater on her eventually to prevent her from tearing up her skin.
I finally gave IB salmon and potato a try (have been afraid to try it because of all the anti-Hills rumors on the internet). Echo has been fully onto this food now for a week and already she has stopped scratching! I haven't seen her scratch for two days now! Her digestion is even better than on the fancy, expensive foods, which is better for me, the head scooper!
Great food and I'll be keeping her on it from now on.

Our rescue doggie, Tiffy, loves this food! We are trying the grain free, as she does have some itching and allergy problems. I love the idea that this is a natural product, without any unnecessary or artificial additives.
We only buy SCIENCE DIET for both of our dogs and have great trust and faith in your products.

by SnowconePrincess Number one dog food!
I've adopted my doggy about 2 years now and he is one of the pickiest eaters I have ever met. Took me about 6-7 brands later that I came upon the Hills Balanced Diet brand. At first I was skeptical since he never liked any other food before but, to my surprise, he loved it! He ate everything in a flash. I was so happy. I was about to cry. After reading through the ingrediants, I came to realize how wonderful and healthy this food is. Yummy, healthy, and smells very good for him. Thank you, Hills for keeping up the good work and just to let you know, Pupcorn and i will be supporting you guys for the rest of his lifetime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ditte Great product!
I recently put my 6 year old Bull Terrier girl on this product because she was starting to have troubled skin and coat and I thought a change of food could help and a change of protein source. It didn't take long before I noticed a considerable difference! Her coat is more shiny and she hasn't had any issues since the change. She loves the food and I haven't had issues with fishy breath. I use the food as treats too and she really likes it! The only issue that we have is that it only comes in the small bags and it becomes incredibly expensive! I have considered changing to something different just because of that but I would really rather not :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magme The product is great; need to offer a larger bag.
I switched our black lab to this product a few months ago. She has a sensitive stomach. The grain free option is FABULOUS! She is doing much better, her coat looks better, and she never skips meals.
My only complaint is that I can't get the food in the 30 lb. (or larger) size and the 11 lb. bag is really costly compared to others when you are feeding an 85-pound dog. We feed our lab the minimum required amount to make sure she stays within a healthy weight, but it is still not that affordable.
BTW: We supplement with the Ideal Balance grain free treats. I have a really hard time finding them locally. Even places that carry the food do not seem to know about the treats - spread the word.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Banana Make a bigger bag
My dog seems to really like this stuff. He's pretty picky. His coat is much softer and he seems more energetic. He's 70 pounds, and kills an 11 lb bag pretty quickly. Why not make a bigger bag? You have feeding recommendations for dogs bigger than he is. The price is a little ridiculous when the other formulas are available in the much bigger bag at a much better price than two 11 lb bags of this stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gordon0511 decent food, little overpriced
Finally Hills has a diet that mimics the ancestral diet. Ingredient quality is not the best I've ever seen, but we're moving in the right direction. The main reason I buy Hills products is because I'm afraid of all the recalls the other natural and holistic foods seem to experience. I just wish they'd use higher quality ingredients in all of their diets, for example, using pea protein is a sneaky way to boost protein content, but overall my pet seems to be doing well on the food. Her coat has improved and she's maintaining weight well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chels14 Ideal Balance (Grain-Free)
I believe that this dog food is an excellent choice. Although I wish there was a bag in the Grain-free that has more than 11lbs before you have to go up to the big bag of the dog food. It would be great to have more coupons for this brand of dog food or maybe lower the price a bit. My last opinion is that for the price of this dog food it is a really great dog food and my siberian husky loves it. Plus all the nutrients in it is one of the reasons why I choice it for my dog. I want the best for her.
