Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 73 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for dog through all stages of life! I first was introduced to Science Diet through my vet. My dog enjoys this food very much and I enjoy the fact that it is backed by veterinarians. I want what is best for my dog and I feel he is getting that with this product! May 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by More pricey, but a much better product for your pet. When I got my puppy he was 5 months old and alittle under weight, her previous owner said she did not eat much, I want to give her the best nutrients, she is now at her target weight and doing great. May 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by My dog loves it and so does his tummy!!! My puppy was having tummy and skin troubles on a cheaper dog food. On a recommendation from a friend, I tried switching to Science Diet Large Breed Puppy dry food. He loved the taste immediately and within a week his tummy and skin troubles cleared up! I feel like the price is a little high but I'll trade that over cleaning up a messy kennel 2-3 times a week!! :) October 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seems a little dry When we adopted our puppy from the humane society, we were given a small bag of science diet dry puppy food. Even though it was dry food, it was a little moist. We have now purchased 2 large bags over the last couple of months. The larger bags seem a lot dryer. Not sure if this is due to being in a larger bag. Also, while my dog was loosing his baby teeth, it was hard for him to eat this food. Overall, he loves it and will work for it! September 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality It is good to have a high quality dry dog food for my german shepherd puppy. We have been using the Science Diet brand for 5 years now, starting with our pomeranian. Thanks for a trustworthy choice! September 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by quality at an affordable price My Boxer puppy seems to enjoy this brand and formula. September 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My cat and dogs love to eat their science diet food! We have had very good luck with science diet dog and cat food. They all love to eat, never have to add additional food to "trick" them into eating. Good healthy strong dogs and a cat, that's well... A cat. Would love some huge coupons! 30lb bag of food every week gets expensive with a Great Dane and an English mastiff! September 22, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Average product My two large breed puppies will eat your food (canned and dry) but prefer other brands of large breed puppy food September 21, 2015
