Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by INCREDIBLE VALUE, QUALITY PRODUCT My puppy loves Science Diet Healthy Development. When I got her from the Human Society that is what she was being feed. I still feed her that to this day and she is doing great and very healthy. She loves it so much that I use it to treat for all of her training. She is clearly at the head of her class in puppy training classes. I also used Prescription Diet I/D that was recommended by the vet along with prescriptions she needed. Another GREAT product by HILLS !!! June 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful black coat This is Molly, our 11-month old Boston Terrier. She is very smart and loves everyone. Her vet says her coat is amazing, especially since she has never had a bath and has been brushed only a couple of times. Molly is now eating adult Science Diet and likes it even better than her puppy food. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for your pup, always coupons out there As a college student, I knew getting a dog would be a commitment of not only time, but also money. I can always find coupons from Hill's to save a little extra cash for the puppy fund to get him toys and treats. That's what I really love about getting him this food. Plus, it gives you a helpful chart on the side for what to feed your dog based on his/her weight, so you don't over or under feed your pup! Overall, I know I wouldn't be able to afford getting him Hill's and lot's of toys without all the coupons out there. Thanks for those Hill's! August 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This food is a great product safe and healthy. My yorkie loves his Science Diet food. I can feed him with confidence knowing it is a healthy and safe choice of food. June 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cured the problem Once Maeve began eating the vet-suggested food, her stomach problems went away. She likes the food--so that is a huge plus. Ran out one day recently and just picked up one at the farmers cooperative--she did not want to eat it--not only did her stomach problem return, but she is smarter than we are. She knew not to eat it! Drove to the vet the next day! June 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My puppy loves it My 7 pound, 7 month old puppy prefers the taste and the kibble size of this food. Since I switched her her coat is very shiny, and she is full of energy. She is a very happy Jack Russell pup. May 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food!! Science Diet is made in the USA, has REAL ingredients, and no DYES!! I feel great knowing I'm feeding my dog Science Diet and my boxer puppy has never had a loose stool on this food. If she gets a little bored with the dry food i just throw in a little Science Diet wet food puppy and shes a happy girl. February 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hill's Science Diet Puppy Original My dog really enjoys this food, when finished she is searching the room for more. The only draw back about the dry food is sometimes the kibble seems to small for her. She is not a large breed dog so I stayed with the original. Wasn't sure if there was a difference in the nutrition of the two varieties. (Puppy Original and Puppy Large breed.) The cost does seem a little high compared to something I could get at discount stores but the vet recommended to keep the dog on this for her first year. I hope the benefits are worth it. Thank you for a great product. October 1, 2015
