I love that Hills Science Diet has products designed for specific needs! I love that Hills Science Diet has products designed for specific needs, and are formulated to help pets achieve their ideal health and weight requirements. My dog loves the flavor (he hasn't liked some other brands), and I love knowing that he is getting the best food for his age and overall health. September 19, 2013
If dogs could talk ---- Jesse James would tell me not to bother buying another brand. I've tried. After he wakes up in the AM he runs to his bowl - which is empty or I'd never get him out to do his morning duty - but he hurries because he knows what I'm now putting in his bowl. My sister's dog visits and the first thing Daisy does is run to Jesse's bowl. I have never had Jess stay loyal and look forward to eating dry food but this is a true winner and keeper. Thank you Hill's!! June 29, 2013
Best product for digestive issues I have been feeding my 3 year old lab pip science diet since a puppy. She had many problems as a puppy, digestive issues, parasites, loose stool. Vet put her on science diet and everything cleared up and I have had no problems since. I am a devoted science diet dog food buyer. If a pet store is out I go to another to get exactly what she needs. Her coat is as shiny as can be and she has grown into a beautiful black lab. I highly reccomend to friends who get puppies. Keep up the great news. May 29, 2013
great large breed food we love this food in that it has the great ingredients that will help with my 130 Ib mastiff/bulldog... he will eventually have hip issues, so this food will hopefully help prolong that! July 25, 2014
Quality ingredients My dogs love the taste of the food and are always exceed for mealtimes. July 20, 2014
Hill's has the BEST foods on the market I'm a vet tech and everyday we see animals who are sick all because of the food they are eating! There are other companies who make 'good' food to fix the problems that their own cheaper food caused. What's that about? Seems like a business tactic to me. While other companies charge the most for the worst foods. Thankfully there's Hill's. They only make high quality foods that keep your pet the healthiest inside and out! And to prove its good stuff they guarantee it 100%. And without twenty hoops to jump through just to get your money back! Honestly when you consider all the money saved on having a healthy pet when you feed Hill's it's well worth the couple extra bucks. Thank you Hill's for all your great products! July 16, 2014
Hill's Science Diet Large Breed Adult is perfect for my German Shepherd mix I feed all of my dogs Hill's Science Diet or Hill's Prescription Diet. Hill's is one of the few companies that does animal feeding test trials on most of its foods instead of just relying on a formulated food. Hill's foods are also always lifestage appropriate. In other words, Adult food is Adult food NOT a puppy or kitten food as in ALL LIFE STAGE formulas other companies sell. It is all about nutrients NOT ingredients! May 14, 2014
This dog food is nutritionally great, easy on the digestive system. Everytime I purchase a new bag my dog gets really excited. This dog food is a great value and easily available. May 3, 2014
