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
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
This product has been great for my dogs I have a 6 month old rottweiler puppy who LOVES the Hill's Science Diet Large Breed Puppy food. She has a sensitive stomach and had problems with other large breed puppy brands. Once we started her on Hills, she immediately got better and loves the way it tastes. Our other dog (a lab mix puppy about 7 months) loves it too! Its nice to have a brand that both dogs enjoy eating and saves us money too! August 18, 2015
Dog can't get enough! We switched our dog to Science Diet after she could no longer tolerate the food she was on from the shelter. Now, she's strictly a Science Diet dog and can't get enough! She loves meal times and eats really well now that we've changed her food. I can't say enough good things. Science Diet saved us when we weren't sure where else to look! August 17, 2015
Good product You're dog will love it even better when mixed with the Hills Science canned food. August 17, 2015
Awesome Stuff! Science Diet hands down is the best dog food made. Period. I've been using there food for all my dogs " Rottweilers" for over 20 years and this stuff works to perfection. They love the taste they put on the weight but not to fast they always have a beautiful healthy coat. This stuff is awesome. My recent new born Ray Ray was born on Dec 15th 2014 was of coarse winged off the breast and put on Science Diet Puppy Food for large breed around 6 weeks old and I took him for his check up today 06-05-2015 and he weighed in at 76lbs and is not even 6 months old yet. He is healthy and growing like a horse. My vet always says how well Science Diet works so don't waste your time on anything else. If you want the best for your fur babies then buy Science Diet.

This is the only product for my dog. Beau, my 7 month old Chocolate Lab, only eats Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed. Once he starts eating, he doesn't stop until is food is all gone. He even licks his bowl clean, twice. June 10, 2015
This food has a balanced diet for a large breed growing puppy. I have a rescue pit puppy that came to me barely able to walk on her front legs. She was about 8 weeks old when she hobbled into my life. She had a beautiful face of and an amazing bouncy happy attitude that made her impossible not to love immediately. I started her on a balanced diet and made sure nothing was broken. She is now almost 6 months and you would never know she had any front leg issues as a small puppy. May 20, 2015
