Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen1013 Best Food EVER
My Senior Springer was having sensitivities to other foods and would either vomit or have diarrhea. I started him on Science when I adopted never had an issue. He did well on it. I foolishly changed his when I was having financial issues and the problem got worse. I put him back on Ideal Balance and the issues stop completely. I made the decision to start my puppy on it when I get him home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steffie164756 Palatable for picky seniors
Ideal Balance Mature is an awesome food for seniors whose tastes have changed. The kibbles are easy to chew and the picky eaters even dive in for a taste! I love the ingredient selection and the evidence shows within the haircoat and the energy of my senior! He thinks he is 6 months old again even though he Is 13! I am so thankful that thid diet is available after trying so many different diets. Thsnk you Hills once again you rock

Rated 5 out of 5 Chicken & Brown Rice Food
My dog is a feisty little devil when it comes to food. He will eat just about anything, but upon giving him this new treat, he went to town on his bowl. Really great product and for it to be new, his tummy handled it well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by furryfriendly911 I want my dog to eat as healthy as I would
My dog had the worst gas and acted hungry all the time. Once I put him on a more natural diet including free of corn and gluten, the gas was GONE!!! Of course, he is still a dog and will always look for hand outs (which I never do) or something to drop on the floor (which I don't always have control over) . I no longer worry he's not getting the balanced diet or nutrition he may lacking anymore, or if he ate something he shouldn't have (within reason, of course). In the long run, it will save you money on vet bills and by not over feeding your furry loved one. Thank you, Hills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dojobl It has helped the health of my dog.
I love Ideal Balance, my dog has had urinary tract issues for years this product has cranberries in the food which is why I bought it to begin with. She has been eating Ideal Balance for a little over a year and we have had no urinary tract issues for at least 12 months I have to attribute that to the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keith98 Excellent for weight control and dogs with sensitive systems.
Our dog is 7 years old and does very well with this product. She has a very sensitive system and it took us a long time to find a dog food that was good for her. She likes the food, maintains a good weight and is peppy. Could not ask for more!

I started using Hill's a little over a month ago, previously I used another brand. After that short time my 10 year old standard poodle has been more alert, active and has completely stopped
his occasional bouts of throwing up. Coat is full, eye's are clear, life is good in the poodle world thank's to Hill's

We used to feed another food and when they seemed to be dropping their quality control we started searching for a new food that we could trust to feed our pets.. Hills Ideal Balance is where we stopped... We have been happy so far.. Keep up the good job..

by JackandAsa Low protein in a senior formula
Our dog got sick and wasn't eating or keeping any food down. He had elevated liver and kidney levels as well. Our vet recommended a senior formula with low protein. This is the only food we could find that had a low protein for a senior dog. Both our dogs are aged, male - 11-1/2 and female almost 13. They are both on this diet now and are doing well. We have noticed that their itchy skin and dull coat is improving as well. I recommend this food whole-heartedly.

Pets love Hills and veterinarian does too.
If only the 15lb bag had self seal like the 4lb bag does the product would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slcgal Looking for healthy ingredients.
I bought this because it has healthy ingredients for my dog, is not packed with corn and fillers, and is made in the USA. It works very well for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SherryN DOG LOVES IT
After trying several types of food for a dog with a sensitive stomach, I went to Ideal Balance Brown Rice & Chicken. It
was a big hit with my dog and a big hit with me because he was able to tolerate the food and liked it. He went from a very sickly looking rescue dog to one that people comment on how nice he looks, how shiny his fur is and how happy he is. Thank you Hill's Science and Ideal Balance Brown Rice & Chicken. Hill's Science is the only food I have used for over 35 years for my dogs and cats.

My jack Russell puppy cannot get enough. She devoured her meals. With other puppy chow she would pick through it. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Remy Love your dry food
I recently switched my 10 year Boston Terrier to your Ideal Balance Natural Chicken and Brown Rice Formula (Mature) and I must say, the transition was easy.
She's been a very picky eater, along with allergies, so I was reluctant to change her food at this stage, but she eats the minute I fill her bowl, and the natural formula seems to have helped her skin allergies.
Thank you - and wish I did this sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BubbaDog8 Our dog loves this food
We tried a few less expensive brands and our dog would eat them for a while and then stop eating. Until we tried Science Diet. He loves this fooD! He gets so excited at meal time and hardly waits for us to get out of the way before jumping in to wolf it down. The only problem we have is the cost. He's a big dog and goes through the huge bag fast. I wish you put coupons out there more often to help us stay with a food our pet loves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by zander Good Natural choice
I decided to try this product because I wanted to switch our pet to more natural food. I also liked the idea of the brown rice being a main staple and ingredient. Overall my good really enjoyed this product and had no upset stomach after consumption like is common on other brands. After using for a month I noticed a lot better stool consistency as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by njgmeq Excellant brand-bag size wrong
My schnauzer loves the taste, but you eliminated the medium size bag. 4# is a waste of money, The huge bag is too big to handle. Bring back the 20 pounder please!

That's the consensus from all seven of my furkids. And to those of us who are lucky enough to enjoy a multiple dog family you know what a godsend it is when everyone can eat the same thing.They've been enjoying it for a few months now and my only suggestion would to add a mature adult option to the small bites variety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ennaoJ My dogs LOVES Ideal Balance
When Science Diet changed their formula recently my picky eater was not happy with her Active Longevity Small Bites. I was concerned and called Hill's, still not sure what to do. So I tried Ideal Balance, my picky eater loved it! I had to watch not to over feed her, which was never a problem. I feel good giving it to her because I know it is good for her. She is 10 years old, she is a small dog and has always been a picky eater. She has always eaten Hills Science Diet, now she enjoys Ideal Balance, we are both very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vicki713 Great product!
Willow is a picky eater, but she LOVES this food. She also had some digstive issues in the past which requires her to eat the Hill's I/D canned food, which she also likes but got bored with it after several months.
We had gotten some Ideal Balance samples at a PET FEST
and she absolutely loved it, so we mixed the canned with the dry Ideal Balance (I/2 the daily portion of each) and she's excited about eating her food again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bingo2 Healthier ingredients
I was waiting for Hill's to come out with a food that competed with all the other brands that were already on the market, claiming healthier, natural, etc. The ideal Balance is it. The new packaging is great, and the ingredients seem to be more in line with what I want my dogs to be eating. Change is good.
