SD's Light food tastes great! My rescued Beagles, Bagle and CiCi (bagel and cream cheese) love the light food. The extra fiber helps them feel satisified with a smaller portion, and keeps them from getting too fat, because they are real food hounds! That's not suprising, but our 2 year old rescued, one eyed, Shih Tzu mix is crazy about the light food too, she even barks at the food safe (Beagles# for a nibble #she's a grazer#. She prefers it #the taste# over everything else #I've tried), and she wants the regular kibble, although she only weighs 10 lbs. August 28, 2014
Science Diet Light actually works! We have tried to shed the pounds off our less active dog. A combination of walks & changing from Lamb & Rice to the Light food has made a significant difference, vet is even pleased with the results......still says we have weight to loose, but at least we have the tools to do it with a food that our Patty will actually eat!

Great nutritional value Our Great Pyrenees has eaten nothing but Science Diet since we rescued her at 2 yrs old and she is in great health. The Light helps to keep her weight where it needs to be to help avoid potential hip issues as she ages. September 7, 2014
My little dog loves Science Diet Light Boo has been eating Science Diet since he was a puppy. We switched to the Light recipe when he began to put on a bit too much weight. He certainly does love to eat - it's a constant battle with the scale. He gobbles up every bit of food that goes in his dish so that must be a vote of confidence. December 31, 2013
This product is good at weight contraol My three little Chuhuhuia mixes have a tendency to gain weight and this is the only light food that I have found that will not put weight on them. All of the holistic foods I have tried even though low fat or light will put weight on them. They seem to love the taste and eat every morsel. May 16, 2012
My pets are healthy and it is because of Science Diet My pets have been on Hill's Science Diet all of their lives; from puppy/kitten to older pet. Money does not matter when it comes to the health of my pets. They are part of our family. May 16, 2012
MY DOGS ENJOY THIS PRODUCT We have used this product for almost 30 years. Our first dog had a problem keeping her food down, and after starting this we had no problems. We currently have two chocolate labs and we feed them the same food, and they enjoy it. September 25, 2014
Great product I have been using science diet for years, my dogs will not eat anything else September 28, 2014
