Great food My two labs love it. They are 12 & 14 years old and have lots of energy and are happy and healthy. November 24, 2013
Science Diet is loved by hy household I have 6 senior rescued dogs (4 are Great Danes) and 3 rescued cats. Your product is the only product I could find that all my pets will eat with NO side effects. They all enjoy the taste, their coat is soft and shiny, no ear irritations, and best of all... no runny stool. I love Science Diet and so do my pets. October 28, 2013
What comes out is as important as what goes in... I have taken to rescue dogs... and they have taken to me. I have 4. The fact is, taking care of a dog - any dog/dogs - is more than feeding and sheltering and exercising them. It's also the cleanup of what they leave behind... and what goes INTO them can effect how their coats shed, and their other, uh, needs... nutrition, of course, but also the plumbing. <grin> This food has my guys running smoothly, predictably, and comfortably. It allows us to really love and spend quality time together all day, every day. And I tried NUMEROUS other foods before we could say that! September 26, 2013
Endorsed by my 12 yr old puppy! We have multiple dogs, all rescues. One of them came to us in early 2003. He was a 100lb 3 year old shelter dog, frightened and ravenous. The first few weeks he managed to barrel his way past us out the front door and ran, but luckily we got him back unharmed. These days, 9 years later, we open the door and he stays put. We think it's because he knows where the food lives. He's now 12+ years old and a svelte 74lbs. He runs around the yard with the other dogs like a puppy, and he can jump high enough to see over the 7' block fence. He's healthy, has a shiny coat, and he's a very happy boy. I attribute that to quality food and lots of love. What more could you ask for? May 16, 2012
My 12 year old Rottweiller was not eating on a regular daily schedule. We were concern so we tried Science Diet. My 12 year old Rottweiller was not eating on a regular daily basis. We were concerned so we tried Science Diet - now she chows down every day. We think it has given her new life. She was getting thin and weak, now she's walking the block every day and she looks healthier. We hope she makes it to ripe old age of 15 on Science Diet. Pretty long life for a Rotty! Great dog food!

My dog loves it I like the size of kibble my 16 yr old dog doesn't choke on it. August 23, 2014
Love food Hi, my lab is 10 years old, and love the food, but I don´t know why she is still hungry, I just change the food. August 22, 2014
we have only fed our dogs with Science Diet! We appreciate the excellent quality! As we see other dog food companies have recalls for problems with the quality of their food, we have never seen this with Science Diet. We had our first dog for 15 years and she only ate dry Science Diet. Now, we have two dogs for 10+ years and, again, they have only consumed Science Diet. Please keep up the wonderful quality control! And, don't change the formula--if it ain't broke, don't fix it! July 16, 2014
