Hill's® Prescription Diet® t/d® Canine Dental Health
My dogs love t/d!
I've tried several foods (since I work in the veterinary field). Prescription Diet t/d is the favorite in my household. Even my small pomeranians eat the regular (versus small bite) version, and it's helped to reduce tartar and the need for dental cleanings!

My dog loves his t/d bites as food and treats!
My dog Samsun (2 year old Boxador) loves his new t/d bites, during the "transition" phase Samsun left all of his old food and only ate the new yummy bites! The kibble size is perfect for giving as a treat and a meal. Seeing my dog happy makes me happy plus the added bonus that its cleaning his teeth and he doesn't even know it!

My fussy chihuahua loves it!
The vet clinic I work at has large t/d bags on sale, but finished giving out their t/d samples. Knowing my fussy 11 year old chihuahua, I hopped around town looking for a pack of sample to try before purchasing it. We've wasted a lot of different packs of kibbles throughout his early life, so I just wanted to make sure he likes it before wasting money and another pack of good food. Much to my disbelief, he starts munching and crunching the nuggets (original sized bites!)! He takes much more time to finish 1 nugget than other dental chews like greenies which I think should have more cleaning effect on his tartar laden teeth!
He's going to get dental done soon, so hopefully this time t/d will help his teeth stay clean! I'm so happy he's loving it and I'll definitely go buy a pack to try!

Saved my dogs teeth
When we first found my pup a few years ago his teeth were in horrible shape. He wouldn't let us brush and we didn't know what to do. Our vet gave him his routine dental cleaning and prescribed the T/D dental food. The next year that we came in the vet was amazed and said he won't be needing a cleaning any time soon. This stuff really works!

My dog is fussy but she loves this product.
My dog is 11 years old and very fussy, she loves the Hills brand and the Dental bites work very well on her. Everyone comments on how white her teeth are for her age and I say it is thanks to Hills t/d Oral Health food.

An effective dental aid product
Our dogs need regular teeth cleaning as it is too difficult for them to allow us to effectively brush their teeth. The t/d dental large chunk food, effectively controls the tartar development while they seem to enjoy the taste. I feed it as a supplement after their normal feeding.

I was very sceptical that this dog food would work and also taste good .my dogs are a little particular about r their food especially dry dog food. My vet insisted that my young dog have the dental food as her teeth had to be removed because of plaque. Now I am a believer ....the dogs love their big food. I can definitely justify the cost vs dental problems .

My dogs love t/d!
I work at an animal hospital, and as such receive samples from other companies. I tried a competitor's dental diet, and my dogs refused to eat it. From now on, t/d is the only food they get!

This product definitely does what it's claimed to do.
After dental procedures we routinely send a sample of T/D and an information flyer with our patients. The diet is very palatable and does an excellent job of keeping plaque down to a minimum. This allows us to maintain our patients dental health and minimize the amount of dental procedures needed. This diet definitely achieves if not surpasses its dental claims!

t/d really works!
On our spring visit to the vet he pointed out that our 8 yr old black lab was getting tartar build up. He recommended we try t/d dental dry food. At first I was giving it as treats. I couldn't believe the short period of time it took for his teeth to start looking clean! Not that my dog had doggie breath but there is no hint at all regarding dog breath. Now we mix about 25% t/d in his daily feedings. This is one of the best canine products. I love when he smiles and those teeth look great. I point it out to our fellow dog owner friends all the time. When they come visit, they get t/d as treats! My dog will never have to worry about being put under for dental cleanings and the trauma (me) that goes along with it.

Very pricey & not quite sure it's worth it
I do still catch a whiff of stinky dog breath every once in awhile. Also, the product is VERY expensive. Will have to wait to go to the vet to really find out if it's helped with her teeth. She does seem to enjoy the taste so that's a plus, but then again she's never been really particular.

Great breath for a dog.
My 2 Huskies 11 & 12 have been eating these TD bites all their life right before bed time. 6 each and of course their doctor uses them to divert the dogs attention while drawing blood. I feel they do a great job of keeping the dogs teeth clean and breath fairly good.

Product really works for dental health!
My dogs love the taste as well as myself who loves the overall dental health benefits! They actually think it's a bowl full of treats!

Really has helped with dental condition
My dog " Buddy " has been using TD on a daily basis for 9 years. He recently went in for a yearly and the Vet said his overall gum/dental health was excellent. He eats the TD like were giving him treats. Its great that one can address a health issue with diet. Thank you

This product has great features
my dog loves the big, crunchy bites. He eats his food immediately.

Great product=Less dental cleanings
My three chihuahuas love the food and they eat the regular size not the small size. Of the three dogs only one had to have his teeth cleaned this year and he was at grade one, which equates very little tarter.
The cost of TD for a year is far less than three cleanings each year. Last year none of them needed to have their teeth cleaned, so I am very happy only having had to have one cleaning in two years.
Another plus is that I can obtain a coupon from the Hills web site for $7.00 off the cost at the Vets office.

Great taste for any dog
I love this product because all my dogs love getting this food as a treat. It is something they look forward to everyday. It prevents tartar as well as help reduces it.

Love the product
It is a great product. I only wish the small bites t/d were available in the larger bag. I was informed they were only available in the small size bag.
My dog was so used to eating smaller kibble that he breaks the large kibble in several pieces to eat it. A bit messy when he eats but likes the product. Greatly helped his dental issues.

The kibble is a bit large for my small dogs.
I have 3 yorkies with teeth cleaning needs. The kibble is a bit large for their small mouths, but they do seem to chew it up with some effort, (which is what is suppose to clean the teeth)and tend to carry it to a carpeted area to chew it. I think that it keeps it from sliding around while they break it up with their teeth. They seem to like the taste of it. It is a little bit expensive but you can usually get a coupon online. It must be purchased from a veterinarian.

Wrong size for my dog!
When I had cats they had the feline version and it was like magic on their teeth so naturally I wanted to give it to my dog. Unfortunately, even the small bites are way too big for my 4.5 lb. Yorkie. I can't chop them up because then they are too sharp for her mouth and too crumbley to be effective. Her mouth and her teeth are way smaller than the smallest of my cats and she just can't manage even the small bites. I really hope Hills recognizes that there are now millions of tiny dogs out here that need cat-sized bites for their minuscule mouths. Such a great product except for this.

This product does what it says it will do plus more
I changed my dogs to Hill's Prescription Diet t/d and they just love this so much I wish the dogs could tell the company how they really love it. I'm so happy I got the original bites instead of the small kibbles. My veterinarian gave me both samples of the kibbles to take home but she first gave my small 12 pound dog a small kibble first and he had it eaten in seconds so she gave him original and he eat that one more slowly. My small dog breath to soooo much better its unreal I can't believe the difference it made in 9 days and the tarter build up has changed so much it is not like it was before. I'm so pleased with this food and how it changed my little dog he is so much more playful and he does a lot better on drinking more water and more playful with my large 40 pound dog . I could go on and on about this food. The only thing is I wish you could put coupons in the food or send them to people in the mail its nice to have a $7.00 coupon when I buy the 25 pound bag. Thank-you Hill's prescription diet t/d for making my dogs happy dogs.

My dogs are happy with the food. Helping keep their teeth clean. Lots of crunching

The only dog food I've seen with pork.
If you can afford this I would give it a try. I have an 11 year old lab that stopped eating.I tried every healthy dog food at Petco. Thank goodness they have a return policy.This product is quite pricey, you could always use it for treats.

My dogs love their T/D
I have an 80# Husky mix and a 19# Sheltie mix and they both LOVE this food. I was unsure if the kibbles would be too big for my small dog but she actually swallowed the Small Bite T/D whole! This is one of the few foods my dogs like enough to feed as their main diet and give it to them as treats.
May 11, 2014
dogs love it!
This food was suggested to me to help keep my sheltie's teeth clean. It really helps! She had a dental, and afterwords this food has helped keep the tartar at bay! Lady loves them, carries each one over to her "spot" and happily chomps away!

T/D keeps their teeth clean and they act like each cube is a treat.
I have raised two great danes and two small breed dogs on T/D diet (regular bites) as treats with their Hills puppy food during their puppy stage and then as a complete diet from adult on. They have all absolutely loved it and thrived with beautiful skin and coats. And, best of all, it kept their teeth looking like puppy teeth. I worked in veterinary clinics for 23 years and saw T/D save people the cost of doing dentals many times when fed as a complete diet and I recommended it highly.

Dogs will have clean teeth though. This product contains soy and more research is needed on the health benefits of soy to dogs when making soy such a large proportion their diet.

All 3 of my Chinese Cresteds love the TD Large Bites
My little 6 lb takes a piece and taunts the other two as she guards it under her head. If i need to pick her up i have to take that piece with me or she gets bent out of shape. She trained the other two to do the same, they love it so much.
I feel the TD large bites are a nutritional way to clean my Cresteds' teeth as i feed them. Cresteds are known for their poor dentition.
Dear Hills, please don't ever stop making the TD large bites or all of my dogs will be very sad.
