Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shiny Coat I rescued my puppy Roxanne about 3 months ago, she was in really good health, but the food she was eating was adult food. I stayed with the same brand of food but puppy formula (just a small bag to see how it would work). A neighbor mentioned her fur was dull and it was pretty dull and flaky. My 14 year old cat eats the same brand Ideal Balance so I switched Roxanne's food to the puppy formula. She loves her food! I get comments all the time on how shiny and bright her coat is. She is lean and fit and has good solid poos which are very important. I'll never switch foods for my dog or my cat! June 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy and his digestive system likes this product. We introduced our puppy to this food slowly. It has agreed with him and we also use it for training purposes. Duncan (our pup) likes the flavor and transition from his first food went very smoothly. I wish the price was a little lower but I guess you get what you pay for. We want a healthy puppy and the food seems to be helping to achieve that. October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING!! My puppy would get sick all the time and refuse to eat. My vet and I tried numerous types of food and he was just to picky. She had me try Ideal balance because he was itchy all the time, would get upset stomach which caused him to refuse to eat, and had bad puppy dandruff. we started him on ideal balance and he loved it. no more scratching, no more dandruff and he isn't throwing up anymore. found out he was sensitive to corn and grain. PERFECT PUPPY FOOD ALL AROUND!! October 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like the balanced nutrition the product offers. I like the balanced nutrition the product offers. Good value and trusted name in dog food. Seems easy on my puppies stomach. March 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by my puppy loves it She was started on this as soon as she was weened by my friend's dog (the mom). I continued the food because I didn't want to change what she was used to. She's very happy and healthy. I just wished the dog food came in the larger bag which would hopefully be more cost effective. It is a little expensive. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Doggy Love My dog Kevin loves the food. The food smells good and his stools are looking much better. August 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product has ingredients I look for While I find this a good product, I find it more expensive than others. I also have a harder time finding it in larger bags. Since getting more than one puppy, the smaller bags are more costly per pound and don't last very long. August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by All 4 of my dogs eat Ideal Balance. They love it and have beautiful coats!!! My American Eskimo puppy Juneau was being fed Nutro puppy food when I got her. She had brown stains in the corner of her eyes. My other 3 dogs eat Ideal Balance ( 2 eat Ideal Balance Grainfree chicken and potatoe,and 1 eats Ideal balance chicken and brown rice) so I switched my puppy to Ideal balance puppy food. She no longer has the eye staining and she has the most beautiful white silky coat June 30, 2015
