Product your big dog will like My 1 1/2 year old German Shepherd Dog liked this food. I believe he likes the Hills Science Diet Dental for 1 to 6 year olds better. I think he likes the bigger chunks in it. The funny thing is my Chihuahua likes the big chunks of the other food better than this also. But since this is a big dog food I didn't put much value in to his opinion. I would buy this food for my GSD when I couldn't get the Dental type. May 6, 2014
Great quality with great taste Love the ideal balance dog food. So did my dog! He picked the pieces out when it was mixed with his senior diet! Great product at a great price. May 6, 2014
This product is a healthy choice. My dog was not a huge fan of the flavor of the food and he prefers the 'small bites' so we will try another Hill's ideal balance product, but the product itself is wonderful! May 5, 2014
This product is Awesome! Most mature adult dog foods are bland. I can not say this about this food! My dog loves it! The texture, size and smell is great for my dog! One of the first all natural food I would ever feed my little girl. Thank you Hill's for coming up for a mature adult dog food that my dig will actually eat. May 4, 2014
Difficulty eating I have always been a big fan of Science Diet but as my dog got older he got picky. I have him on medication for osteoarthritis and it is very important that he eats before his medicine. I was having to coax him to eat ever morning (it would take 10 minutes just to get him started). He loves Ideal Balance. The palatability is great! I switched to a cheaper selection of S.Diet and ended up going back to Ideal Balance because my dog just likes it better! April 28, 2014
Once again, Hill's has developed a superior product! Just when I think I have never seen my dog enjoy his meal more, I introduce another Hill's product and Be'la enthusiastically finishes every last morsel! This was my first experience feeding a 'mature adult' recipe, and although I was skeptical about his response, Be'la finished his first complete meal (after a week of a slow introduction), and looked at me as if to say, "Is there more???" I am so appreciative to Hill's and its continued commitment to providing a superior product for my pets, and am grateful I made the choice to join the Pet Parent Club. What a great opportunity to try these wonderful products and share the great news with others! April 28, 2014
Picky Eater My lab who use to eat anything is having issues eating and getting rather picky with her food. She would never walk away from food but in her old age it is something that has become the norm. She did EAT the Hills food which was great! We have since purchased more and she has been eating much better. Thank you February 16, 2014
