Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Grain Free Natural Salmon & Potato Recipe Adult
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 :-(

great dog food
Only problem was it gave me dog fish breath. So I switched to chicken and potato.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Like the idea of no grain. Stops itching mostly. Maintains her weight.

Loki seems to like it
Overall the product is fine, and will continue to keep using along with the sweet potato and chicken. My only issue is that I wish they sold it in a larger bag similar to the other products.

good dog food
A little pricey but the dog is getting good food and that is important.

My dog requires a grain free diet and although more there are more options now than in the past few years I'd like to see more of a variety of flavors.

Pleases Fussy Canines
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.

So far my dog's favorite!
i had a coupon for ideal balance food, so i tried this particular one just to give my dog a different taste... she absolutely loved it! it usually takes her a while to touch her food since she normally eats only once a day but when i gave her this one, she ate right away and she eats regularly now (2 times a day)! i definitely recommend this product!

HILL'S IDEAL BALANCE of nutrition and taste
We have two small dogs who have sophisticated and very particular tastes, and they love Hill's Ideal Balance dry and canned products in various delicious recipes like salmon and potato. We appreciate the perfectly balanced nutrition they are lovingly receiving each day.

Excellent taste our finicky dog loves.
I've had a hard time finding the Salmon taste in grain free dry dog food for some time. I tried this flavor first as I hadn't been able to get it from the other brand of grain free dog food she eats and she loved it before. I appreciate having more than two flavors to chose from in the grain free dog food as she gets tired of the same flavor when there's only two to rotate between.

Perfect for picky stomachs and picky eaters!
Our yellow lab has a sensitive digestive system and on top of that she can be a picky eater - she'll eat something for a while and then tire of it. Finding a food that satisfies both needs can be quite a challenge. The grain-free Salmon and Potato formula has been the perfect solution. No stomach upsets, her skin and coat are healthy and shiny, and she's as excited to eat it now as she was the very first time. I highly recommend it!

Our pups loved this feed! And we loved the ingredients! It was a match made in heaven for us.

My dog loves this food. She had an issue with grain and using this grain free food has helped her stop itching and her coat looks much better. She loves the Salmon and potato mix. She was a rescue dog and used to be afraid of food but now as soon as she hears me poor it in the bowl she comes running.
