this is the best dog food!! We have to dogs a pure bred mini dachshund and a dachsador(lab and dachshund) and they love their food and it helps them not get fat and keeps their coats nice. I think everyone should use this product. November 13, 2013
The Best ! When "Slinky" came to live with us he was eating a cheap brand of dog food. His stool was awful so I decided to use the same food as our other dog ate and of course it was Science Diet dry dog food. Slinky had his first bowl of Science Diet and he gobbled it up. I have no problems with him eating his breakfast or dinner and his stool has improved to what it should be. October 23, 2013
My dog is healthy for an old dog because of Science DIet Labs by nature are gluttons and many (most) are very overweight and underactive the older they get. Our yellow lab is over 13 and though she has been slowing down for a few years the only physical sign of her age is being white in the face. Her vet recommended Science Diet light when she was young and has been on it most of her life, never being overweight since. Just recently we switched her to small bites because its easier for her to chew. I'm certain that regular checkups and her diet is what has kept her with us this long and healthy too.

Helps with weight loss My 2 bigger, older dogs love the light food and the choice of small bites is easier for them to eat. We like the choices of active or light so they get a change every now and then. And they don't have stomach issues with any of the Science Diet products. We had to put my big boy on the light and he lost 12 lbs and his weight is stable now. Which has helped his knees since he had 3 surgeries and is doing great. Thanks April 14, 2014
Great product Use this because my dog has diabetes, works great. April 13, 2014
Product keeps my Harley fit! Harley is a 13-pound Yorkshire Terrier who has been on Science Diet foods since we got him at 1 year old. He's 7 now and as fit and chipper as they day we got him. Although he gets regular treats, he still chows down on his regular food without ever giving us a fuss about it. April 9, 2014
It has been the best small kibbles for My Yorkies. My vet recommended Science Diet Light small kibbles for my 2 Yorkies 15 years ago. They lived a full life. Now my 4 year old loves it. Keep up the great tasting food and quality food for our pets. Thanks Sharon February 22, 2014
garbage in garbage out We started with science diet when our vet told us that our dog's food was the cause for him having frequent bowel movements. We was using a grocery store's store brand of dog food. so when we took dog for check up we said to to the vet that it seemed like this dog was having frequent bowel movements. The vet asked us what we was feeding the dog and we told the vet the brand we was using, then the vet said"garbage in garbage out" He said that science diet was a little bit more expensive, but that we would have to use less because the dog's body used most of the stuff in food that dog would be healthier and have less frequent bowel movements. So now happy dog and happy owners. January 4, 2014
