Good reliable product My puppy really loves this food--she is thriving on it. December 19, 2013
According to my Veternarian this is the supreme choice food for my dog Speedy. Speedy was a rescue pup. You would never have known it because of his lean healhty body & coat. He is very good looking & he was 1 of 6 pups in his litter. He was the smallest but is now the best in health & looks. He loves his Science diet small bite puppy chow either wet or dry. I was considering changing his food because there are other dog foods that claim to be all natural however; after talking things over with my dog's vet I understand that even though the other brands look healthier there is no scientific proof to back up their claims. Science Diet actually has proven data of the benefits that my puppy is getting through this diet. Thanks to Science Diet I know my puppy will be a healthy happy. December 16, 2013
Healthy Coat My puppies love this. I noticed the beautiful coat they are developing. They hear the bag and get excited. December 11, 2013
This food keeps my puppy healthy and happy! We have only had our rescue puppy for 5 weeks and had no problem introducing this puppy food into her diet. She has loved Science Diet small puppy bites and comes running when she hears me putting the food into her dish. The vet said she has good weight and is very healthy, and when he asked what we are feeding her, he said he feeds his own dogs Science Diet too. There is no better testimony than that! Thanks Hill's for a product I can trust! May 31, 2012
The food has provided good health and fine coat. Puppty was adopted at which time I was provided with a small bag of this food. I have continued to purchase as puppy is doing qute well with health, weight and a nice coat. Plan on continuing to the next level of food. September 13, 2014
Puppy Loves Hill's My puppy was being fed the Hill's Science Diet food at the Cleveland Animal Protective League and they recommended we continue feeding her the same dry food. She loves it! We use it for training in addition to meals because the little kibble bites are small enough that she can have an extra handful without adding too many calories to her diet but still learn her commands, but it's tasty so she has an incentive to listen. She's getting all of the vitamins and nutrients she needs because she's strong, fast, and her fur looks beautiful. We'll be transitioning to the various stages of the dry dog food as she gets older, but we'll definitely continue to purchase Hill's for her. September 11, 2014
This product is great I have tried others and my puppy liked this the best I tried other brands before science diet and my puppy didnt like the taste of others and would go potty more often. After being on Science Diet she loves the taste, potties less frequently, has a shiny coat and is very healthy looking. June 9, 2014
My Puppy Loves This Food! I recently made an addition to my family; she is a Blue Boston Terrier named Grundy's Blue Ruby, "Ruby." When we got Ruby she was a little under-weight because she was not eating well. After a day or two I noticed that she drank plenty of water, but seemed to be struggling to eat the food provided when we got her. I looked at the food and realized that it was an adult dog food, so I went to PetSmart and picked up Hill's® Science Diet® Puppy Healthy Development Small Bites. When I got home and fed Ruby, she ate all I gave her without any trouble, and then begged for more! It only took about 2 weeks of feeding Ruby the recommended amount of Hill's® Science Diet® Puppy Healthy Development Small Bites for her to gain the weight she needed, and she got an A+ at her healthy puppy check-up. Thank you Science Diet from me, and my Blue Ruby! May 11, 2014
