Product has been a miracle with my dog's coat! I have a total of 3 dogs, a Cocker Spaniel, Siberian Husky, and Golden Retriever. The Husky is a rescue, most likely a sled dog that was dumped, and has always been a picky eater and would not eat dog food, and when he did it was every 3 days. Since switching to Ideal Balance Slim and Healthy, our Husky now eats twice a day! What an improvement! Ideal balance has made! My Golden Retriever who is 4 years old, developed horrible dandruff, which I believe was from a dog shampoo I tried and never used again. He also developed a skin infection, along with it, and his coat on his back became dry, brittle, and started to fall out in clumps. The vet put him on an antibiotic, and a special shampoo, which both helped with the infection and only somewhat with the dandruff. I decided to switch from a high end expensive grain free dog food, to Ideal Balance Slim and Healthy. This was 2 months ago when I made the switch. I can say that my Golden's coat has grown back, No more dandruff, and his coat is soft, and not dry and brittle anymore! He would also pull his tail fluff out, why probably from separation anxiety, or allergies, but since switching to Ideal Balance, I looked this morning, and his tail fluff is growing back, and looking more fluffier! My Cocker Spaniel, he eats anything, and I currently have him on Ideal Balance Mature Adult 7+ years as he is almost 9 years old! All I can say is what an amazing difference this food has made in my dog's! November 21, 2014
Great for my 1yr old cocker and my 13 yr old papillon started using ideal balance and my papillon lost 4lbs and now is very healthy and her coat is excellent, not oily like other dog food that is was feeding them. My cocker is still a pup but will live a long healthy life by feeding it a great ideal balance dog food July 24, 2014
Amazing quality that will do wonders for your pet's health! My pooch not only loves the flavor of this dry dog food, but her coat is looking very shiny and healthy!! Hill's products never fails me, or my pooch for that matter! no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives! formulated with coconut oil which I use in my own diet! Thank you Hill's!!

This product really helps with weight control plus coat condition. My border collie really likes this food and it lives up to what it was developed to do in taking her weight down and maintaining her weight. We had some trouble with her coat on other products but on Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy her coat is thick and shinny. I would like to have low calorie "Biscuits" also in any Hills dog food product. I bought Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy Sensitive last time and I think I like it even better, however, I haven't been able to find it again. I began feeding Hills Science Diet products in 1972 when I was breeding and exhibiting Keeshonds. I have competed in Conformation, Obedience, Rally Obedience, Tracking, and K9 Nose Work with Keeshonden, Bouvier des Flandres, Australian Shepherds, and now my Border Collie. July 19, 2015

Great product My pets like ideal balance. Seems to work very well for them and no issues. July 16, 2015
Product is outstanding for dogs needing to watch their weight Ideal Balance, Slim and Healthy, Chicken and Barley is an excellent product. Our Westie has always been a good eater but has had allergies in the past. We have had excellent results. However due to Pepper's leg issues it is important to keep her weight down but her allergies added another twist. Because of our good experience with other Hill's Ideal Balance products we decided to give Slim and Healthy a try. It has been two weeks now and there has been no signs of her allergies kicking up. It looks like we have found a dog food to help keep her weight in check as well as her allergies. Thanks you for providing excellent products for our four legged family members. Keep up the good work. April 30, 2014
Shedding decreased a lot, weight is coming off Our 6 year old Labrador Retriever has, like a lot of Labs a tendency to gain weight, despite 1-2 hours of daily exercise! In addition spring time and fall are the times when he sheds excessively. So I switched him over to Ideal Balance Slim and Healthy to see if this would keep his weight better in check and if his shedding would decrease. To our surprise his shedding decreased very much, and he sheds very little! The second surprise: His weight is slowly dropping (I feed him the weight loss amount recommended for his weight by his Veterinarian). Great results - with excellent ingredients in this food. He loves his food and seems less hungry! We will stick with this for sure. April 26, 2014
