It's terrific and the kibble size is perfect!! Most of the food anymore, dog toys and obvious niceties are everywhere but we understand and wait for the mini fungus.75 acceptability in the last 30 years has been for the increased attention and desire for these small dogs- While large breeds get kind of pushed out of the picture a bit but thank Heaven we're coming back!! There are so many choices for small dogs regarding food including many shapes and sizes. Let the big dogs have this one !! They are gentle giants who love being treated like a baby dog!! ?? It's all good!! Thanks!!

My micro Yorkie was placed on this food about a year ago. She HATED IT. Each kibble was about the size of a cocoa puff...HUGE. So, I'd take a small batch in a zip log bag to the carport & beat it with a hammer to crush it up...I just bought a second bag & the kibble IS smaller than before, but would like it even smaller. My girl likes the improved taste.

I think the quality is excellent. It's the most recommended food per my dog's vet for heart failure. My only and biggest con is that I have a Pomeranian and this dog food is HARD and really big. I literally have to smash it with a dumbbell to crack it into smaller pieces for her. If it wasn't the only one on the market I'd get another one but there isn't so it looks like I'll have to either blend it to crumbs or smash it every day to make it smaller.

My miniature schnauzer is 11 pounds and has trouble with the size would like to see smaller bites

I am a foster parent of a 1.5 year old French Bulldog that has three different heart conditions. I ordered this food in the hopes it would help him, though my vet recommended to start with k/d because it might taste better for him. Well, he LOVES this food and I feel at peace knowing I'm giving him what he needs and everything he doesn't need.

I have a 9 lb Maltese and a 9 lb Yorkie, both seniors with heart problems. They need small bites please. You can keep selling me the huge bag but they have a hard time with this huge food and my vet said the only other option is wet food, so here we are.

It is very difficult to find low sodium dog food, but the kibble in this is too large for my small, elderly dog and the bag is too large.

You need to make it in different flavors and much smaller bites.

I don't understand why this isn't offered in a small kibble since heart disease seems to be so prevalent in small and toy dogs. Almost all reviews state the same concern. It's very tedious having to break it up with a hammer for my tiny pomeranian. I've never had an issue finding dog food for a small/toy breed until now, and you're the only ones who have this food, so I don't have a choice. Shame on you for not taking care of the little ones. It's a great product but very Inconvenient.

My 13 year old chihuahua has a hard time eating the kibble because the size is too large. Other than that works great!

Our 12 yo Chihuahua is doing well on this prescription. Wish it came in a small kibble.....we our currently smashing it with a rubber hammer. :-)

I'm still in the process of switching my dog to the h/d and he seems to like it. He's actually been on the i/d due to a recent issue and the kibble of the i/d is a perfect size for my senior. Also, I notice that the canned i/d comes in a stew formula, which is nice since I use it as a gravy over the dry food. Since most heart patients seem to be seniors, wouldn't it make sense to make the kibble smaller? And are you working on making a stew formula for the canned h/d?

My 15 yo dog is been doing great with this kibble, but she's old and she has lost some teeth which makes it hard for her to bite on those big kibbles. Before she was on the senior diet that had small bites and it was perfect. Other than that she likes the product.

This food has the worst ingredients possible for my dog. The main ingredient is corn! There is no real meat in it either. Why did my vet recommend this for heart health. Recent studies have also shown that dogs with heart conditions need protein and this is low in protein. We have opted to switch to a food with better ingredients, low sodium and higher protein level. He is doing much better.

Recently my little Chihuahua was diagnosed with a heart problem. She was placed on medication and the doctor recommended that I switch her food to Prescription H/D. I would do anything to help her live a longer life so I bought the product. She loves the taste and after a few weeks I began to notice a difference. She seems to feel better and while I know the medications play a large part I also believe that the low sodium diet is also doing a great job at keeping her heart as healthy as it can be. The food is designed to help the heart work more efficiently and not stress as much to work. I would recommend this diet to anyone with a pet that has a heart problem.

The 8.5 lb bag for large dogs is too small and very expensive. Also when trying to get coupon from website it doesnt print and says I've meet my limit, so I can't always retrieve the coupon. Your staff is very helpful when talking with them.

My 7lbs Maltese has an enlarged heart. His vet prescribed Early Cardiac at first but quickly moved him to Cardiac. Vet said, at the stage he was in, my dogs life expectancy was about 6 months. That was 2 years ago. He's been doing just fine & you wouldn't even know he had a heart condition. The food is definitely doing its job for my dog & I couldn't be happier he loves it. My only complaint would be the size of the packaging. I wish there was the smaller packaging like they have for Early Cardiac. I prefer the dry food so I am forced to buy the huge 18lbs bag. They don't have the smaller 8lbs bag for Cardiac. Buying such a huge bag of food for my 7 lbs dog is really inconvenient. Every time I buy it, I wonder if he will live long enough to finish it. He does. However, it's not as fresh and mostly stale halfway through. That's my only complaint
