Healthy food for your best friend I would recommend ideal balance as my dog has lost 15 pounds in 5 months July 11, 2014
My dog loves this food, and it helps keep her at a healthy weight. My dog who is 2 and a half needs to lose weight. I researched many products and found this one. My dog loves this food, and it is helping her to reach her goal weight. July 3, 2014
Purchased for weight loss My dog is over weight & purchased to help her loose weight, seems to be working. She seems to like it. July 1, 2014
First Diet Food My Dog Actually Likes I have a finicky eater that needed to go on a diet food. While still active, she was putting on weight in her adult years. She actually likes this food! After 2 months I can see a definite improvement. I also give her a couple of spoonfuls of the canned with her evening meal. It is rather dry, but she hasn't complained. June 27, 2014
Trimming the pack I have 3 dogs, 1 10 yr old Border Collie, and 2 3yr old Goldendoodles and ALL love this chow. Even the very picky eater. Even though it has only been 8 weeks full-time on the Slim and Healthy, all have lost weight from 1 1/2 lbs to 5 lbs. I am impressed and they are happy and will soon be the slim and healthy dogs that they should be. My only negative remark is the price, but their health is worth some sacrifice. May 30, 2014
My dog seems to enjoy this food although it doesn't seem to be her favorite I've been feeding my do this food for a couple weeks now. She seems to like it as she always eats it all. Although she doesn't gobble it up as fast as she does some of the other flavors. I like that it is low in fat for her and will keep her trim and healthy. So as long as she keeps eating it I will keep buying. May 18, 2014
New quality product on the market My 10 year old Jack Russell, Buddy, has had a difficult time losing weight, and as a result the arthritis in his hips is an even bigger problem. I appreciated the opportunity to test this new product, and was pleasantly surprised by the full sized bag of food. Buddy has never been a big fan of dry dog food, but it was made a little more tasty by the addition of the wet food sample I requested. He never really took to the dry food, but I know anything from this company is top quality, so I highly recommend it. May 14, 2014
This product really works!!! My 9 year old beagle (Mandy) has been loosing weight since she has been on the Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken & Barley Recipe. She has more energy, she doesn't feel hungry all the time. I love the dog food because they use natural chicken and grains and no artificial colors or preservatives. May 12, 2014
