Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken & Barley Recipe Adult
High Quality Food
We have two dogs, a Maltese and a Long Hair Chihuahua, and both love this food. We also have 2 Domestic Medium Hair cats that love the feline food. Our dogs and cats eat the dry food primarily, but eat the canned sometimes as well. The food is easy on their stomachs and is a very high quality food. Having a high quality food to feed our pets is very important to us since they are our family and we love them and want the best for them.

First Diet Food My Dog Actually Likes
I have a finicky eater that needed to go on a diet food. While still active, she was putting on weight in her adult years. She actually likes this food! After 2 months I can see a definite improvement. I also give her a couple of spoonfuls of the canned with her evening meal. It is rather dry, but she hasn't complained.

Trimming the pack
I have 3 dogs, 1 10 yr old Border Collie, and 2 3yr old Goldendoodles and ALL love this chow. Even the very picky eater. Even though it has only been 8 weeks full-time on the Slim and Healthy, all have lost weight from 1 1/2 lbs to 5 lbs. I am impressed and they are happy and will soon be the slim and healthy dogs that they should be. My only negative remark is the price, but their health is worth some sacrifice.

My dog seems to enjoy this food although it doesn't seem to be her favorite
I've been feeding my do this food for a couple weeks now. She seems to like it as she always eats it all. Although she doesn't gobble it up as fast as she does some of the other flavors. I like that it is low in fat for her and will keep her trim and healthy. So as long as she keeps eating it I will keep buying.

New quality product on the market
My 10 year old Jack Russell, Buddy, has had a difficult time losing weight, and as a result the arthritis in his hips is an even bigger problem. I appreciated the opportunity to test this new product, and was pleasantly surprised by the full sized bag of food. Buddy has never been a big fan of dry dog food, but it was made a little more tasty by the addition of the wet food sample I requested. He never really took to the dry food, but I know anything from this company is top quality, so I highly recommend it.

This product really works!!!
My 9 year old beagle (Mandy) has been loosing weight since she has been on the Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken & Barley Recipe. She has more energy, she doesn't feel hungry all the time. I love the dog food because they use natural chicken and grains and no artificial colors or preservatives.

Like that there are few "fillers" in the recipe and vegetables and fruits.
Trevor, my four-year old poodle mix, who can be a fussy eater, devours his two daily meals, whether served plain or with canned food. I love that the kibbles contain healthy nutrients and ingredients that aid in weight loss and promote shiny coats.

This product was a win-win for both of my dogs!
Typically my dogs never agree on the same food. So, we decided to give this a try. Thankfully, Hill's has come out with a product that both of my fur kids approve of - taste, quality, and it's healthy! They don't act hungry throughout the day and have more energy than before. Definitely a winner in this household!

Great For the Less Active Pup in Your Life!
We had been looking for a healthy, nutritious food for our beagle that will turn 12 in July. Knowing he is a little less active these days, we thought the Hill's Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken & Barley Recipe Adult would be a great source of nutrition. He transitioned over to the food just fine and has been doing great on it.

Since eating IdealBalance Natural Chicken & Barley Adult dry food my dog no longer has digestion problems and his coat appears shinnier. Natural product. He loves it.

This Product Is Wonderful!
My adult dog is very picky when it comes to eating dry foods. I decided to try Hill's Ideal Balance Slim and Healthy Natural Chicken & Barley Recipe hoping that she will like it. Not only she liked the food, but ate right away without any hesitations. One of my kids mentioned that the food smelled delicious. I think this product is wonderful, it has a great smell, and I believe it tastes divine to my dog. I love the natural ingredients that are perfectly balanced with the vitamins and minerals my dog needs. The addition of coconut oil makes this food a real super food because it has helped my dog loose a little weight since I started feeding her. I highly recommend this food to any dog parent who wants the best for their pet. Thank You Hill's for such a remarkable product.

Product is outstanding for dogs needing to watch their weight
Ideal Balance, Slim and Healthy, Chicken and Barley is an excellent product. Our Westie has always been a good eater but has had allergies in the past. We have had excellent results. However due to Pepper's leg issues it is important to keep her weight down but her allergies added another twist. Because of our good experience with other Hill's Ideal Balance products we decided to give Slim and Healthy a try. It has been two weeks now and there has been no signs of her allergies kicking up. It looks like we have found a dog food to help keep her weight in check as well as her allergies. Thanks you for providing excellent products for our four legged family members. Keep up the good work.

Sir Watson Cleaned his Bowl
Sir Watson really did like this food , I followed the instructions sent with the food and at first I thought he was going to do they way he did with another product I purchased before where he would put the food in his mouth then spit out the one he did like.
I was wrong he did clean his bowl everytime. Great product ...

Roxie is getting her Terrier Figure Back
My Jack Russell Roxie was eating the Ideal Balance for small breeds and loved it, so it was easy to introduce the food to her. She is a grazer with her wet and dry food, but she's been eating the dry so I know that she's enjoying it. She is getting her shaply Jack Russell figure back!

Not bad, but not our favorite
My adult Irish Wolfhounds typically are not picky eaters, but when offered this variation of Ideal Balance, they weren't very happy. They did eat it, but not with the gumption they normally show with the Chicken and Brown Rice variation.I guess they don't like Barley!

BEST food GREAT quality!

They loved the taste and I loved that it is good for them.
My 2 happy pappies (Papillons) love the flavor of the Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken. I have had trouble up until this point finding a reasonable price great quality dry food aimed at helping my 2 maintain there weight which was in small bite size pieces. My littlest Papillon he was missing some teeth when we adopted him and he had trouble sometimes chewing some of the foods we have tried this one is a nice manageable size for him to chew.
They both love the food so much that I have been able to use the food as an alternative to treats. I love the fact that the food also contains coconut oil which is great for their coats.

My dog loves it.
My dog ate 3 handfuls as soon as I opened the bag. He loved the taste. I measure out is his amount each day but I can tell he is staying fuller longer because his food last longer in his bowl.
April 28, 2014
Love Love Love this product!
Wow, just opening the bag was great! The smell was unusually pleasant, almost like a potato! My dog is already eating Ideal Balance Large Bread so it was easy to transition her! She loves it! I have noticed that her digestive track is working beautifully, something that has been difficult sense we found her. I would like to see this food with a bigger kibble. I would like to be able to purchase a bigger bag than 21#. The bag is not user friendly. It would be great if the bag had a Ziploc seal or Velcro seal on it. Keep up the good work Hills I am so happy to feed my dog an all natural diet.

Shedding decreased a lot, weight is coming off
Our 6 year old Labrador Retriever has, like a lot of Labs a tendency to gain weight, despite 1-2 hours of daily exercise! In addition spring time and fall are the times when he sheds excessively. So I switched him over to Ideal Balance Slim and Healthy to see if this would keep his weight better in check and if his shedding would decrease. To our surprise his shedding decreased very much, and he sheds very little! The second surprise: His weight is slowly dropping (I feed him the weight loss amount recommended for his weight by his Veterinarian). Great results - with excellent ingredients in this food. He loves his food and seems less hungry! We will stick with this for sure.

This product was not popular with my dogs
I tried this product with my babies; I have 4 dogs ranging in age from 1 1/2 years old to almost 5 years old. They like Ideal Balance dry dog food. However, they were not keen on this product. Initially there was only a 25% approval rating, as only the older dog ate some...and not right away. I made a second attempt to see if the dogs would taste this product, and one other dog did try it out, but only after also trying out wet dog food. So overall there was a 50% approval rating for this product.
Even though this product has chicken, it did not draw their attention...even to just try out a few pieces.

My dog likes this food very much and I even use it as a treat. She has more energy and is more playful. I was looking for a healthy food for her which also would help with weight control. I found it!
