Hill's® Science Diet® Mature Adult Active Longevity Original
Life Stage Nutrition Is So Important
Before I took a courses in Veterinary Medicine, I was unaware of the existence of the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) and its standards. I also didn't realize that dog food is not all about a high protein content. Turns out too much of a good thing can be harmful! Feeding one's dog or cat according to its age and activity level is crucial to its overall health as well. Because agency minimums must be met, if you're feeding a food for ALL stages, then it's PUPPY food, since puppies have the highest requirements for any given nutrient. While puppy food is great for dogs under 1 year of age, the extra protein level is not optimal for adult dogs and especially senior dogs because it stresses their kidneys. Science Diet understands this. They balance the ingredients and label their products accordingly, so you know you're getting exactly the right combination of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. My two 13 year old Golden Retrievers love the taste and are in excellent health because they are eating the best possible food available-Hill's Science Diet.

Picky 13 year old Terrier actually finishes her food daily
I have tried to find a healthy food for my older dog. She is so picky but now she eats all her food everyday. Finally I can relax a little.

Wouldn't dream of feeding anything else!
My husband & I have a 7yr old Aussie & a 7yr old Lab mix on this food. Their energy levels are high, their coats look great, & aside from the gray hairs that are beginning to pepper their muzzles, you'd never guess them to be seniors.
Hill's has always been such a trustworthy brand with the highest quality product out there. I wouldn't trust my dogs on anything else!

Complete balance for a mature dog
Since switching to this food I have my 8yr old spayed Golden Retreivers weight and nutrition completely under control. She loves the taste is happy with the amount and timing of her meals. With other dry products I was having trouble controling her weight.

My fussy huskies enjoy it!
Huskies are notorious for being picky eaters, and this dry food has been a successful choice for them -- I mix it with a different flavor of wet food each night to keep them interested, and it's working!
Given the ingredients, the price could be lower, and making it available for purchase beyond specialty pet stores would allow competition to make it affordable for more customers.

Best Dog Food Ever
I once had 2 Cocker Spaniels. One ate Science Diet Senior (canned) And the other ate Science Diet Sensitive Stomach. They loved the taste & it was very healthy for them. I now have another Cocker & just switched due to a product recall. My dog now eats Science Diet Active Longevity. He loves the taste. Once again, Science Diet is a product my dog loves, is healthy for him & never let's me down.

My dog is an 8 year old retired military working dog. He was still eating the science diet active brand earlier this year. I was a little afraid when we switched, that he wouldn't have as much energy as before. I was pleasantly surprised to see that he still had just as much energy as before, people always think that he's only a few years old! Not only that but he seems to enjoy the taste more than the active!

Great for our old girl!
We have a 14 year old Black Lab Chow mix that still tries to jump around like a puppy. She loves this food and it helps to keep her limber. What more can you want?

My dog loves the taste
I have a pretty picky 10-year female black lab who doesn't hesitate to turn her nose up at unwanted offerings. Since I have been feeding her Science Diet - about a year now - those problems are long gone. She loves the taste and looks forward to feeding with as much anticipation as ever.

I'm a believer
My sweet dachshund, Bandit, turns 19 on Friday. He's never eaten any food but Science Diet. He's old, blind and still up for following the scent trails of backyard visitors. His coat is still shiny, his mind is sharp and he wags when it's time for dinner or a nose rub.
Maybe it's good care and breeding, but Science Diet has to be part of it. Thanks!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!
My Lucy is 12 years old now but boy you sure can't tell it! ALL thanks to Science Diet!!! Lucy has always been a Science Diet dog and it has made a HUGE difference in her quality of life! I worked at an animal hospital for 7 years and I saw the difference a great food can make!!! No one believes how old Lucy is! She gets excited and can still "spin on a dime"! I'm sure it's the Science Diet Active Longevity now because she moves around like she's 2!! Thank you Science Diet for making a high quality product that is worth EVERY cent!!!

My Dogs are worth it
I switched my dog to Science diet several years ago. I noticed within days my dog was more energetic. After a few weeks my dog had lost a couple excess pounds and looked leaner and her coat was shinier. I often get compliments on how shiny her coat is now. Although the initial price is more than average brands, my dog eats less of Science diet than she did of the average brand I had been feeding her. I am only paying a couple bucks more a month for Science diet verses the average brand, and the results are so worth it. Science diet is packed with her nutritional needs, not bulk she doesn't need. A huge benefit of this is less waste to clean up, as less waste goes in. When we got a new puppy a year and a half ago we started her right away on Science diet.

I will NEVER feed her anything else!!! Thanks for looking out for our older furry friends Science Diet!! <3

I just bought a bag of the Active Longevity for my over weight lab. The vet told me she need's to lose sixteen pounds. I hope we get great results from the food!

Excellent for my 12 year old lab. She's 80not lbs. Little arthritis. This has done wonders for her getting around better. She loves the stuff.

Better mobility for our dog
We switched from another Science Diet product and began feeding this to our aging English Setter after a vet check-up. Our dog will turn 13 in a few days and over the last year or so we had noticed that her age had really caused her to slow down.Previously she had some difficulty wih her joints and getting up from a lying down position, but we feel that this food has improved her mobility and activity level, allowing her to function much more like her younger self.

Great ingredients for my senior dogs
My 15 y/o and 10 y/o border collies are on Original Longevity and do great! They both love the taste and with the added glucosamine/chondroitin along with the lower phosphorus they act like puppies.

My dog really likes this variety of Hills Science Diet!
My dog is a bit older now (13) and he has always been on Hills Science Diet, one variety or another. A little over weight at one point in his life, we went to the LIght formula. Then Back to the original as I noticed his coat was getting a little dry. When he started to seem like he was acting his age, we switched to Mature Adult Active Longevity and he has really perked up!
Thanks for helping elevate pet nutrition throughout the entire industry.

Quality means alot because she hates everything!
My mastiff is really picky when it comes to eating. She hates all dry food so she doesn't want to eat ny brand. So my main concern is that she eats good ingredients so she can live a healthy life. She may not like her food unless I cover it in meat and veggies, but it's good to know that it is good for her.

Major contributing factorto the longevity of my 14 year old dog
I have been using Science Diet food for the last 13 years. It is far superior to other speciality dog foods. I believe it to be a large contributing factor to the longevity of my dog. All her senses are still intact, meaning she can still hear and see and has never had any health problems

Excellent for Senior dogs
I have been feeding my older dog this food for about 6 months and she loves the taste and it has helped her get her active lifestyle back. Before she would whine when she would lay down and she had stopped jumping, now with this food she is jumping up to play and jumping on the couch, which is quite a feat for a 75lb, 12 year old dog and no whines when she lays down. I am so happy with this food. Also it must taste really good because my younger dog trys to eat it if my older dog doesn't finish it.

Adult Active Longevity has given my adult dog added years!
My Rhodesian Ridgeback Roo started on Hills Science Diet from Day One and she's still going strong at 12. She acts just like a puppy and her joints are strong and healthy thanks to the Mature Adult Active Longevity dog food, she is very active and I look forward to many years of longevity with her.

This product makes my dog feel better
My dog is approaching 13 years old. She's been stiff and showing signs of arthritis. After switching her to the active longevity food, she seems to feel better.

This product helps my dog lead a better life.
You can never really slow down a Border Collie. Even at 13 yrs, she still loops around me as we run and can still swim for an hour inbetween.

Good but needs antioxidants
My 9 year old Malamute has been on this food for 2 years and is still an active dog ready to hike, play with her toddlers and unfortunately, dig up the back yard. The only recommendation I would suggest is to add some/more antioxidants for brain health since it is not only the body that ages.

Our lab mix Cody recently passed away at age 17. In his later years he used Active Longevity exclusively and I'm sure this prolonged his life. cody loved his daily walks.
My son's Lab Samson is now an ACtive Longevity user. I definitely recommend it.
