Cheap ingredients with poor nourishment

This company is known for selling extremely low quality and rediculously overpriced dog food. I have and will never use this product for my dogs.

Trash

I looked at the ingredients, and there are mystery meats, that's gross, probably road kill. Vets probably shouldn't recommend this trash.

Causing bad breath

Why does this product cause bad breath? I've been using Science Diet dry dog food for my pets for 15+ years and never had any issues. I switched to Senior Vitality, the two dogs get horrible breath. Switched to another SD product, bad breath went away. Forgot, and bought SV and bad breath came back. No teeth brushing, even 3-4 times a week cures the bad breath. WHAT UP SD?

Great food! Saw a difference

I put my dog on this food when it first came out. My dog started acting like a puppy again and would play with her toys that she hadn't touched since she was under a year. As the years went on, I saw more of a difference every year like she was getting younger. She plays with her toys now and runs around the house and is super happy. She always acted like an old lady but after having her on this food, she acts like a 10 month old puppy. I am sad that I can longer find this food in stores. I can only buy it online.

Mini doodle, Gabe, made switch to "senior" food easily.

One cup morning & night and he's a happy camper. Bought one of those "maze-like" dog bowls as he's an eager eater and now we're both happy.

She's a new dog!

Annie is a rescue from our humane society. They guessed her at 5 and she's been with us for 7 years. She just finished her second small bag of the 11+ food & is a new dog. She wants to play again & has more zip in her step. Thank you! So glad we found this food!

Love this food!

Our 15 year old dachshund has been having trouble with doggie dementia, lethargy and continence. I switched her to Youthful Vitality about a little over a year ago. I am really pleased. Her bladder control has improved to the point that she no longer requires diapers. Her cognitive abilities may have improved a little but I'm not positive. What I am positive about is that she has not gotten worse. For me that's a win because she was going downhill quickly. She is still relatively lethargic most of the time but I do notice that she is pretty frisky after a long rest. She has even played with me a couple of times and yesterday she ran around the entire house while out for a potty break. It did take a little while to see the improvements but that is to be expected. - Also, the food tastes great! Our younger dog, who is on joint food, tries to steal it from her! I am an employee of Hill's and love and highly recommend this food for senior pets.

Noticeable Improvement in Activity Level

My Irish Terrier is 12 years old and I noticed she wasn't as active as she used to be. I switched her to Youthful Vitality and noticed a difference in her activity level almost immediately. She used to take the stairs up and down our deck much slower, but now she approaches them with confidence and quickly climbs the stairs. She has never been a picky eater, and she continues to eat this food without hesitation. When I started feeding Youthful Vitality, I was feeding her the same quantity of food that she received before I switched and noticed that she was gaining weight. I reduced the serving size a bit so that she maintains an appropriate weight. I would definitely recommend Youthful Vitality to anyone with an older pet. If you see the change in behavior that I did, you will recommend it too.

I will always buy this product

We have a shelter dog, Australian shepherd mix, that has been part of our family for the last 7 years. He has had his ups and downs in the past with weight issues after we first adopted, to coat issues, and other challenges that just happen due to aging. As he's gotten older we continue to adjust his diet to his activity and just started using youthful vitality in June of this year. He absolutely loves the food. With as active as he is behaving we may never have to change his diet again.

It works... I can see a difference.

My dog Chocolate Mousse is 9 years old and has been eating Youthful Vitality since the summer of 2018. I have noticed a positive difference in her energy, willingness to play more and less time sleeping during the day. Her coat and skin also improved, resulting in less shedding.

Great for my old dog!

My dog is older now and I notice that he's put on some weight. I decided that I wanted to get him eating better food on a regular schedule. I went to my pet store and planned on getting a small bag of the weight management formula but seen a $7 off coupon of the Youthful Vitality so I scooped that bag right up! My dog took to the food right away and I have more trouble with him getting on a schedule than I do with getting him to eat the food. It's been about a month now and he has shed some pounds and is still happy with the food. He always looks forward to feeding time! My dog is a Lhasa Apso, I get him the large breed option. The pieces of food are the perfect size for him, they are not very big at all but I feel that he would scarf down the small breed option. The velcro closure on the packaging is awesome! I buy the small bags and I do wish that the opening was a bit wider. I have small hands so it isn't much of an issue but much bigger it would be more difficult to maneuver the scoop without spilling. I'm hoping to stick with this food but it is pricey and that may deter me from sticking with it later on. All in all my dog and I are very happy with this food. He has lost some weight and there is an extra skip in his step these days!

My older dogs are doing great!

I have been feeding Youthful Vitality to my two Australian Shepherds ages 10 and 11 for over a year. They love the taste and are doing fantastic. Prior to feeding my 11 year old would get a limp after a few minutes of playing ball. Her limp has completely disappeared. Eyes are bright, coats are shiny and energy level is great! I am an employee of Hill's and love and highly recommend this food for senior pets.

My 15.5 year old pug actually plays with the 1 year old now!

Like any quality pet food it's expensive but so are high vet bills for an unhealthy pooch. We adopted our now 15.5-year-old pug at 11 years of age, and he was extremely unwell and unhealthy. Although other food was fine, he had to be coaxed to eat it and was limping a lot despite the addition of hip & joint supplements. We have had him on Youthful Vitality for a little over 6 months and although he still cannot manage steep stairs, he is no longer limping when he gets up from a nap/sleep, and actually makes the effort to play a little with our 1-year-old dog.

My vet introduced me to hills metabolic food. It's natural.

She was lethargic. Now she has vitality again. I serve it as it comes or with treat added. Like a bite of people food.

I have two dogs that are both 10 years old and they absolutely love it. One has a very sensitive stomach but he gobbles it up, no problem. You can really see a difference in their energy as well.

Mini Long Haired Dachshund going on 15 yrs old :)

I attribute Hill's Science Diet for keeping my fur baby a long healthy age of almost 15 yrs old. And of course this is in combination with a lot of love, care and protection and the care of my vet too. The average dachshund lasts 8 yrs old. Sparkie will be 15 yrs old in September 2018. Get the appropriate age/kind/type of Hill's Science Diet that you need, and you'll too have a pet that beats the odds.

Made my dog hairy again!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

I bought a bag of this a couple months ago for my 11-year-old Pomeranian. He has lost some hair especially on his hind quarters. I had him checked and blood tested by the vet we found nothing wrong. The conclusion was hereditary baldness. After eating most of this first bag of food, we all started to notice how fluffy he has become-not to mention most of his lost hair on his backside has grown back. If I had not seen it myself, I would never believe it. My dog is growing his hair back and what he had is thicker and fluffier. The only thing I have noticed that I don't care for is a strong smell to the food.

Howling at the moon.
VERIFIED PURCHASER

My 14yr. old chow chow mix chows down these kibbles. She's been eating youthful vitality for a few months now, she loves the taste. I can just drop her meds. into her kibbles and she gobbles them up. (I add water to her meals). She gets around as good as can be for being a super duper senior ? and is pretty active for her age. We regularly go out and she enjoys her adventures & loves roadtrips & visiting new places..we always bring her"old lady food".

Great option for older dogs!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

I adopted my dog when she was 10, and have fed her exclusively Science Diet Active Longevity (at my vet's recommendation) since. She is now 16 years old and has zero health problems, she's just a tad bit slow and sleepy (life goals, personally), but I have always felt a little bad that she has been eating the dog food equivalent of fiber twig cereal and boiled chicken for the last 6 years. Its kept her healthy, which is the I most important thing, but I don't think she I enjoyed it much. Enter this new food specifically for elderly dogs! She absolutely loves it, actually gets excited for meals and will prance around, it's adorable. There's also an accompanying line of stews that are a big hit. I am a fan of this product, and my 16 year old dog (and her vet) are too!!

Our dog loves it!

It's a bit of a crazy situation with the dog we got this food for and we no longer have her. She is back with her owner in New Mexico. I can however say she really likes the food and never hesitated to eat it!

Gave My Old Dog New Live

After an month on this food I can honestly say my 14 year old Terrier mix is like a new dog. She has more energy and more flexibility. She was really having problems with going up and down stairs but after a couple of weeks on this food it was noticeable how much easier it seemed to be for her. She loves the food as well. I couldn't be more pleased.

No ill effects. No effects at all, really

Honestly, I haven't noticed many changes when feeding this food to my dog. In the beginning, he seemed to drink a lot more than usual, but this didn't cause any problems. I was briefly worried when he rarely defecated. On the previous food, he usually went twice a day, with this food it went down to once a day and a small amount. There was no evidence of constipation or any discomfort. I will chalk it up to different ingredients/nutrient ratios. I have not observed my dog acting any younger/more active. Though, to be fair, he never acted particularly old/inactive. He has never been a hyper dog, but keeps up on hikes/walks. This has not changed.

Brings joy to my senior dog

Our 12 year old dog, Mister, is much more enthusiastic about eating because he enjoys the taste of Youthful Vitality so much. He also went on a five mile hike and seemed more comfortable than usual the next day.
