Good for working dog; good for treats for other dogs I chose to try this product for my active two-year-old terrier. He likes it. I was surprised that the protein level is not higher than it is, and that there is a higher percentage of fat than protein (25% fat and 22% protein). Other foods for active dogs usually have high protein as well as high fat levels. Although my dog is active, he is not a working dog who burns off huge numbers of calories per day. Therefore, I have been mixing this food with a more standard food to lower the total fat percent in his diet. That is working out well. He likes the combination, and his weight is staying steady. I like the small kibble size. I can use this food for training treats because he likes the taste and the pieces are small enough for him to eat very quickly. I like that the Hills website gives complete nutrional information on all of their foods and treats! April 29, 2014
Great choice I have a Mini Aussie and she loves the food. She is very active and needs all the support this food gives. I have even noticed a better hair coat quality. Couldn't ask for a better food. July 18, 2014
Finally, something we both love!! Our dog has food sensitivities, so it's so hard to find great quality food that he likes, tastes good and doesn't have a bunch of fillers in it. We both love this food! It has great and healthy ingredients and no fillers with protein as the first ingredient along with many veggies. It also has glucosamine and antioxidants which is wonderful for all dogs. My dog is a very picky eater and I had no problem in getting him to eat this. He looks forward to getting his dinner every day now and I look forward to giving it to him. May 9, 2014
This product is wonderful. This product was readily eaten by my little chihuahua. She enjoyed the flavor. I like that it has oats in it. The real chicken was a bonus also. Would recommend to anyone looking for a completely balanced food for their dog. May 31, 2014

Dog really enjoys My dog eats it right up!! I have had trouble keeping weight on him because he is SO active, and he seems to be doing better I plan on buying more to see if he will do May 11, 2014
Kibbles look really appealing My dog ate the Ideal Balance better then she has eatin most foods. Maybe putting on a little weight also, she is very active and I have a hard time putting weight on her. I have also seen less stool then with some of the other brands I have tried April 22, 2014
Good ingredients for your dog I am mixing this with the other Hill's Ideal Balance she is eating right now and she seems to like it. She took to it right away. April 28, 2014
