Importance of Large Breed Puppy Nutrition With the increasing number of musculoskeletal issues in large breed dogs and higher expectations in performance getting these pups started right is key. I recommend Science Diet large breed and my own labrador is on it as well. Nice coat, good growth rate, and he loves the taste. December 19, 2013
Great food for my German Shepherd My dog likes this food. It is a good value for the nutrition it provides. September 25, 2013
We love the way it fits our puppies needs. Yogi, our puppy has eaten this since he was 6 weeks old. We have tried other foods with our other dogs but found Science Diet to be the best. It is easy to use, never refused by our baby at mealtime, and he is doing well at all his healthy vet visits. September 14, 2013
Harly likes it. Harly ,Great Dane puppy. 5 months and 82 pounds. Is fussy with some foods but loves Science Diet. Added benefit of less amounts of stool and more firm stool. August 16, 2014
Fantastic Dog Food I cannot recommend this food enough. Our "puppy" is over forty pounds now. I feel good giving him this food; I know he is getting the best possible start in life. I especially like how it is tailored to puppies who are going to be bigger--the joint health aspect is very important. Plus, it is the only food our vet recommends! August 6, 2014
Love Science Diet My dog Rebelle love's Science Diet puppy food! It's a great product! June 6, 2014
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 is my puppy's favorite After purchasing multiple brands of puppy food, Hills Science Diet is our choice. Our dog has a sensitive stomach and cannot keep other brands down very long. Hills Science Diet is formulated for dogs with this condition. We are very pleased. May 5, 2014
