Rated 5 out of 5 by kingtias Product has great features
I highly would recommend this product, dog food is a great quality and very reasonable price. My dog is very satisfied and I'm happy to be with Hills food product. I have been on other dog foods and was not very pleased with the quality. I like that this Ideal Balance had alot of great nutrients.

by L4Lolly My finicky Italian Greyhound LOVES her food!
I adore my 7-year old Italian Greyhound and have tried so many types of dry food that she'll finally eat when she realizes she's not getting real chicken or green beans. Sometimes she'll go for almost two DAYS holding out!!
I always try small breed food because of different needs of a small dog and saw Hill's on sale + two free cans of wet food and thought here goes nothing....boy was I wrong!
Being raised as a food grazer she'll eat when she's hungry. She went over and took a bite...and then it was like a new dog...munch munch munch, tail wagging, munch munch munch, tail wagging looking back at me with huge eyes. Holy cow!!! She ate until she was full and was soooo happy!!
I love that the ingredients are all natural (I couldn't find a single "taste" additive to figure out why she was nuts over her food....it's actually because it's REAL!!!). That makes me very happy, knowing that she's getting great nutrition, vitamins, fiber and great oils. I know how I feel when I eat well - and within the past 1 1/2 months she NOW has a new little prance in her step and has lost any sluggishness! She's back to walking 2 miles with her tail wagging vs. wanting to go home after 3 blocks.
So thank you!! I recommend Ideal Balance to everyone I know! It's seriously changed her demeanor, she's happy, I'm happy and now she sometimes gets chicken and green beans :-)

I switched to Ideal Balance about three years ago from the original Science Diet and since then my dogs digestive system, skin and coat have drastically gotten better. She has been on Science Diet since she was a puppy, so when Ideal Balance came out it seemed like the right thing to do to switch.

My vet recommended Hill Science Diet for my aging Yorkie.
She sometimes is very finicky and refuses to eat her DRY food. We do not give her table scraps or human food unless it falls on the floor.
Since we have her on Hills Ideal Balance Small Breed, she eats every morsel.
Our younger Yorkie is on Hills Small Breed and also eats every morsel. Happy with both products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dletexas old dog likes it
My 15 yr old Boston Terrier has TERRIBLE bad breath, but her teeth are alright. Vet recommended changing to a grain free diet. so I picked IDEAL BALANCE. My other 2 dogs elderly Dachshund and middle aged Boston do not like this food at all, but my little old girl loves it -- & the bad breath does seem to be improving. WOULD LOVE SOME COUPONS FOR THIS FOOD and for HEALTHY MOBILITY which is what my other 2 dogs LOVE. Thanks for making great pet food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy1103 Great results....great experience!
No problems with this product. A bit pricey but it lasts a long time because she doesn't eat as much. It agrees with her tummy and doesn't constipate her like some dog foods we have tried in the past.

Our dog has eaten the same food her entire life. I suppose you could consider her a bit of a food snob. I am a member of the #PetFoodCrew and have received product from Hill's. I'm glad we had the opportunity to try it because our old girl just loved it. I don't know if it was the food or if she was excited for something new but she plowed right through her food bowl.

For the holiday of Passover, we do not eat nor do we feed out pets anything that would contain any "leavened" products, ie., yeast, bread and the like. On my hunt for "what will my dog eat?", I came accross this food and low and behold he truly eats it. A miracle! I have incorporated it in his "year round" diet now as well. BTW, is there any way I can get future coupons to offset the cost. We both thank you so much.

by PetNutritionistLauren My Old Man LOVES This Food!!
I have a twelve year old dog that has fairly severe allergies to everything and also is special needs, so I was very picky in finding a food for him. I tried a bag of this and he has done so well and he actually loves it! Owning multiple dogs I have bowls of adult, puppy, and this food out all day and he always decides this is his favorite! His coat is doing much better also and as a twelve year old dog that has had alopecia and allergies all his life he actually has some fuzzy hair coming back! I could not be more happy nor could my little Max!

Rated 5 out of 5 by chpocket Definitely a hit!
This is a great product at a great cost, compared to some other brands. The advertising they do for this product is exactly what's written on the bag. Real chicken is the first ingredient and has many good-for-you ingredients following! I like the fact is has many vegetables included higher up on the ingredient list and doesn't contain corn as an ingredient. The bag it comes in is an eye-catcher as well, see for yourself! In addition, the calorie count on the mature adult formula is something most people don't know about- older dogs don't need or can't handle the high amounts of protein, but this has a good amount for an older dog and dogs love chicken!

My 10 yr.old lhasa apso loves Small Breed Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe. She can be very finicky when if comes to food and treats, she enjoyed this immediately! It is perfect for her, small breed and mature dog. So I know she is getting the best for her diet, I'm happy and she is happy! Thank you Hill's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by impepjo This product is loved!!!!
Scruffie (terrier/mix) loves her food, she was eating one day, and she plucked her old food out of the bowl to eat the new chicken and brown rice recipe. It really makes a difference in keeping her full, her skin and coat are shiny and clean and boy the vitamins and minerals are helping her stay full of energy. The only downside is that with older dogs they need the glucosamine to help with their joints. But overall I say that she is really loving her food

My Sheltie and Maltipoo enjoy Ideal Balance Small Breed Chicken and Rice as their primary source of nutrition. Both dogs seem to especially enjoy the small pieces. The product is easily digested.

At first she picked around it, but once she got used to the new food, she loves it. She doesn't take well to changes in her food but she adapted very well and seems to love the new Science Diet Chicken and Brown Rice food.
Two thumbs up!

When I opened the box the package inside looked great. When I read the ingredients I knew my dogs would love it. Since I have two dogs I had to feed them separate or the puppy would have eaten this product as well as her own.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WolfieMom Kibble too big
At the mature age my smaller dog's teeth and mouth have gotten more sensitive. While she loves the taste and her coat looks great, she has a hard time eating the kibble because of it's size. I have to soften slightly with water to help (she has had her mouth checked by the vet)

My dog is super picky won't eat certain stuff, plus he has allergies so have to try different things with him. I hope find a food that he will eat with no problem. He gobbles it down if he is super hungry or I ad other things to it like a egg or whatever.

My dog already eats the regular Small Breed Natural Chicken & Brown Rice so I knew she would like the one for Mature Adults since she is going to be a frisky 10 years young dog in a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeffK Please don't ever stop making this!!
Both of my pets (7 year old schnauzer and 13 year old chihuahua) love this food. They have been eating the larger kibble Mature Adult Chicken and Brown Rice. After offering the small breed, small kibble, they don't want the larger kibble at all. I had a hard time finding the small breed version of this food last time I purchased. The great thing about this food is that I am able to leave it down for them and let them decide when to eat. The schnauzer specifically used to pick around her food when she ate a big box brand of dog food with multi colored/flavored kibbles. Since being on Hills, she looks a little leaner but has not lost weight. I believe the food has toned/strengthened her and that she is digesting more of her nutrients correctly because the food keeps her digestive system regular. The chihuahua has gained weight and her coat is shinier than I've ever seen it. In any regard, we're going to remain a Hills Family! My only recommendation is to hope that hills will develop more niche offers under the ideal balance brand, perhaps for specific breeds or more specific age groups or nutritional needs or goals?
