My 6 pound dog is on a low fat diet. This treat is too large and I have to cut it up into 8 pieces. Hills does not offer any other low fat treat choices. Reading the reviews from 5-8 years ago, this treat has been too large for a very long time. When is Hills going to do something about changing the size to accommodate smaller dogs?

We are VERY disappointed that Hills has not been able to ship these to any nationwide retailer. VERY sad because our dog has gastrointestinal problems and requires a low fat treat and this was the best treat available. To not have this option is very disappointing! We are very sad! Please fix this and start producting this treat again and supplying it to the retailers!

My morkie loves these treats. I use kitchen scissors to cut into small pieces for him. He's older with stomach issues and this has been our go to treat. Sadly we haven't been able to find them for 2 months. Hoping they aren't discounted.

We are so disappointed that Hills has not been able to ship these to any nationwide retailer. So sad because our dog has kidney problems and this was the best treat available. The Hills supply chain is broken and we are so sad.

One of the few treats my diabetic dog can have, she loves them but seem like no one has them anymore.

My dog loves it however she is 9 pounds and these are too big. I have to cut them with a knife into 5 pieces for her. Can't you make them smaller?

Most of the low reviews are because the treats are too large for small dogs. I do not find this to be a problem. I use a scissors, and they cut easily. I cut about a third of the bag at a time, put them into a cookie jar and they work just fine on my small dogs. I dont waste the crumbs and give them that too. The dogs love the treats. I just wish they were a bit less expensive.

My dog gets his treat after his insulin injection. I just say time for your medicine and he runs and sits down, knowing he will get his treat following his meds. If I don't give it to him right a way he will bark until he gets it. It has made medicine time so much more of a good time. I know it is a healthy treat, which makes me feel better also.

The size is somewhat of a problem, because her doctor said she could only have one a day. I have overcome the problem by using trimming nippers, the kind you use to cut flowers or trim trees or bushes. I can cut the treats into 6 pieces, so I can give her a treat 6 times during the day. It works great. I do wish they were a little cheaper, and that they had different flavors to choose from, just for a variety; but this is working fine.

My vet has recommended Hills Prescription Diet food and treats for my small 17 lb dog. I am extremely disappointed that you only manufacture one size treat that is way too large for my dog. In fact, she will swallow the treat bone whole and will not take the time to chew on it. The result is that in order to adhere to her prescription diet, I take a kitchen mallet or hammer to break eat treat bone in to approximately 5 smaller pieces. Since I am 63 and she is only 3, I could be spending a long number of years banging treat bones to smaller pieces! Please consider a smaller size version of this product in the future!!!

my dog loves these treats. Would like to see this product made into a large bone.

My dog Alfie loves these treats, when we come back from his morning walk he will stand by the table and wag his tail until I give him a treat if I act like I forgot he will bark until he gets one very smart Poodle. Thank you for a great product He also eats TD food everyday

These treats are ok but they need more variety in these products

My dog loves these treats, which is good since she isn't allowed any other kind because of her urinary issues. The only thing weird about them is that the manufacturing seems inconsistent. I have a small dog, so I have to break them up. Sometimes I get treats in the bag that are way thicker than normal and they are difficult to break apart. In the latest bag, I got one that was far thinner than the rest, too. I'm sure the quality is fine, but it seems weird that they aren't uniform in size.

Our poor dog, Juno, has always had digestive issues. He can only eat ZD wet and dry food. He could never be rewarded with regular treats. We were so happy to find the Prescription Diet Treats. We use them as a reward for tricks and just being a good dog. Juno really gets excited when he sees us take out a treat. He must really love the flavor. Thanks Prescription Diet for making such a great product!

This product is a good treat at night for my dog, stops his cravings and keeps him satisfy until the morning feed. Vet recommended because of his teeth cavities, so when he chews on the treats his teeth get clean.

My dog just loves these treats! Sure beat the milkbones!
by Dogs2 on 08/01/2014
healthy but a bit large for a treat. would like something smaller to offer.
by Jackie40 on 07/27/2014
She loves the taste and helps keep her teeth clean

Dog is limited in the treats she can have. She loves these treats.
by Hanna1 on 05/22/2014
The treats are priced reasonably. They are hard for my yorkie to chew, due to having lost teeth. I wet them and break them down and he really enjoys them as well as the can food.

I have 3 fur-babies and with one of them having a medical condition that requires these treats, I only have theses in my home for all of them. They all seem to like them & get excited when I get the canister of treats out. Which in turn, makes me feel good giving them these treats.
by chanuie on 03/18/2014
These treats are excellent! My dogs get very excited every time they hear the bag open. Thank you Hills for making such an excellent product!
by Pumpkin810 on 02/25/2014
Both my dog and I love all the prescription diet products! I don't hesitate in always using them (dry, wet and treats) as I am sure that I am feeding him excellent quality, healthy food and he never hesitates in eating them! It's a win-win situation!

I give him prescription z/d dog treat biscuits whenever I can, however, only when budget allows. Please offer discounts, as I would buy this more frequently. :)

My pet likes the product. When we go outside for a potty break, this is the reward for going, not going in the house.

My Penney, a 16 pound Bichon rescue, loves these and they are helping to keep her strictly on her cd diet. These treats are a bit too big for a small dog like her. She is a certified therapy dog and she gets treats during and after her work. I try to break these into smaller pieces, but it is hard to do and they still are not small enough. I would love to see these in a small dog size.

Due to the advanced age of our pet (15 years), his kidneys do not work as efficiently as they once did. Our vet switched him to K/D canned food which worked miracles in getting his body chemistry balanced. I noticed that Hills made dog biscuits that complimented the K/D line, but really worried that my pet could eat them as he had had several teeth removed due to decay. Not only could he crunch them up in no time, he LOVED them - no minor fact as he is one fussy eater! Besides being gentle on his digestive tract, I love that the crunchy biscuits help keep his teeth clean and that he enjoys them so much! Although a bit higher price, the benefits of providing my pet with these treats - knowing the health advantages - make this an affordable way to keep "Eddie" in "Good boy treats" while maintaining his health!
