My beautiful Husky Loves this food

I got my husky in 2020 and tried several popular foods with her, but she loves the Science Hill food. I will keep buying it because I know she is getting quality nutrition and at a reasonable price. I also enjoy the fact that the Science Hill products can grow with her and as her nutrition needs change I know that I will have products that I can choose to meet those needs. Thank you for the wonderful product line.

Long time user no more!

Since the change in formula and and size my dogs won't eat the dry food they hardly touch it not even if I mix it in with something else they literally spit it out after eating around it. When they do eat it they get Diarrhea even though they have never ever had issue with changes in there diet before. They have been on hills consistently since they were puppies but not anymore.

Now looking for a new brand of dog food

I have fed our dogs Hills Science diet their entire lives. Last time we bought a bag I noticed the kibbles were smaller. I measure out one cup for each meal and we now go through a bag 20% faster. Thanks Hill's

Change in kibble shape, dog stopped eating

I've fed my large dogs large breed Science Diet all of their lives. I started having trouble with my current 100 pounder not eating, but thought it was that he wasn't a puppy anymore. Then SD changed the kibble shape, and quit eating unless we treated the food, and is down to under 90lbs. We decided because of his age (almost 7) that we would switch him the the 5+ food. It's back to the original kibble size, and he's back to eating like a champ. I can see that the kibble size changed, but maybe the formula did as well. Not sure why they did this, but we were very concerned about our big boy for a while! I would recommend SD, but would say to steer clear of this particular type.

No

We had to switch our dog to the original Adult dog breed Science Diet food because of health issues, after it was "improved" he has lost his appetite and he has lost a lot of weight. We are exploring other dog foods but he gets diarrhea with all of it. So disappointed.

Dog won't eat it now

My chocolate lab used to love this adult large breed chicken and barley dry food, since the kibble size change, he REFUSES to eat it. I am extremely disappointed that Science Diet thought they should change the size of the food.

Why? Why did you change the kibble size? No.

The kibbles are too small now. They're eating it too fast. The whole point was the large size. Go back to the large kibble. Please.

Not a fan at the moment

I've used the Large Breed Chicken and Barley for over 3 years now. This is the first bag I have purchased with the smaller kibbles.The smell is almost unbearable. They have an almost burned or scorched smell. I found myself looking for something burning in my kitchen until I realized it was the dog food. Not a fan of the changes. I'll have to wait to see how this turns out.

Changed Pellet Size

My lab has enjoyed this recipe for over five years. The last bag we purchased had a new pellet size. He is now having issues eating his food and he does not want to finish a bowl. I have reached out to my vet for a new recommendation. I am also contacting customer service to make them aware of my concern. Dogs like consistency...I am not sure why the change was made.

Disappointed in new kibble size/shape

My two dogs have been on this diet for years. I loved it, they loved it, and I recommended Hills to everyone. However, with the new kibble size/shape I am less than satisfied. I have one dog who has always inhaled his food and what I loved about this specific brand/diet was that the kibble bits were quite a bit bigger than competitors which in turn made him actually have to slow down and chew his food; a win in my book! The new kibble look to be a smashed, flatter version of the old kibble. and I am noticing accelerated eating times again. While I do realize there are commercially available products to slow his down his eating time, what I liked about the old recipe was that I didn't need to buy a special bowl just to feed the food. While I cannot comment on the quality of new food recipe (because my dogs are not picky eaters), the kibble size is enough of an issue that I will have to look into other products/brands to meet the needs of my dogs.

Very disappointed in smaller size kibble

I have fed Science Diet for many years but am very disappointed that they changed the size of the kibble! It's designed for a large breed dog so it should be a large kibble. My 85lb lab/Shepard used to actually chew the old version of kibble. Now he throws up because he inhales this smaller size kibble so fast. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED with this change. I am aware of all the tricks and bowls you can buy for dogs that inhale food but I am so mad at Hills for this change that I am going to start looking at other brands! I used to work in the veterinary industry and took the Hills nutrition course years ago but I still don't understand the change.

High-quality product

I trust Hill's Science Diet to provide my pets with nutritious and high-quality food. I have two German Shepherds who eat the chicken & barley recipe and they love it. I go through a bag roughly once a month for these two, and it costs about $45 at PetSmart. Recently (Feb 2019), Hill's updated the packaging and kibble size, which I think are great improvements. The kibble has been changed from large, cube-like pieces to moderate pebble-like pieces. My male Shepherd enjoys this change and gobbles up his food in a timely manner. I would recommend Hill's to anyone who is looking for a high-quality, yet affordable brand.

Doberman Approved

Our female Doberman is 9 1/2 months old and 80.3 pounds of lean, healthy, energetic, happy, a finely crafted piece of German engineering. For her dog food, all she has ever had is Hills Chicken and Barley. The puppy version when she was younger and now the adult version. Her coat is shiny and soft, She is a pretty active Doberman so I give her slightly more than the recommended amount. Proof is in the pudding so this is what I will always buy. She really loves this stuff!

VERY CONFLICTING

I Have no idea why his food advertises no artificial flavours, yet in the ingredient list states "Chicken Liver Flavour". If Hill's just uses chicken liver, why write "Chicken Liver Flavour". I also can not for the life of me understand why a food advocated so heavily by vets contains more grains (Bird Seed) than any other ingredient. I am so disappointed in this brand as a whole. I know vets need our pets to come back so they can run their business but selling food that damages dogs so this can happen is disgraceful! Why would you trust a dog food made by a toothpaste manufacturer. Even Colgate tell you to spit their product out.

Boxer loves it

We were free feeding our boxer an expensive high protein food. Vet said it was an ok food in her opinion but recommended science diet. I thought our boxer was a little under ideal weight and it was always a struggle to get her to eat enough food to gain weight. Bought a bag of the adult science diet and she absolutely loves it. Free feeding is no longer an option or necessity. She actually tries to get into the food container and would probably try to eat the whole bag in one feeding. Super happy with how much she loves the food. She's putting on a few pounds and looks healthy plus we are saving money.

Great food for our girls

We have been feeding our two lab mix girls Hill's since we adopted them in 2013 when they were 6 months old. They love it and are healthy and in good shape. We do not give them any people food as we made that mistake with our last precious girl. Bad habbit!!! They don't know the differnce.

My great dane loves this food but I wish you could design the bag with the owner in mind. I have to get a knife to open and then cannot re-close. How about an easy-open easy-close zip bag. Great food needs to be put in a great bag.

SCARED OF MEN. HAD BEEN TIED TO A LOG, AROUND HIS NECK & HAD SPLINTERS COMING OUT OF HIS LOWER JAW. HE HAD BEEN LEFT OUT IN A DEEP FREEZE STORM IN THE MOUNTAINS FOR A WEEK WHEN A CONCERN FRIEND OF THE DOG COULD NO LONGER IGNORE THE ABUSE. SHE HAD BEEN ASKING ME TO TAKE THE DOG FOR OVER A YEAR. I HAD LOST MY DOG OF 11 YEARS IN FEB 2016 AND I DID NOT NO HOW ABUSED THIS DOG WAS. I WAS TO HEARTBROKEN OVER MY OWN LOSS, WHICH IS A VERY SAD STORY OF ITS SELF. I WAS NOT ABLE TO OPEN MY MIND OR HEART UP. SO IN FEB I HEARD ABOUT THIS DOGS OWNER LEAVING IT OUT IN THE FREEZE. OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND. THEN 1 DAY MID FEB I GET A KNOCK ON THE DOOR.

Fantastic food!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

We started feeding this food to our rescued Goldendoodle, Seamus shortly after we adopted him. Seamus had spent the first 4 years of his life in a puppy mill... but was surprisingly picky about his food. We tried numerous supposedly "top shelf" foods and he would either walk away, or simply not finish his meals. He started losing weight as a results (something that he did not need to do!). Enter Science Diet Large Breed Adult. Seamus has eaten this happily from day 1, he is much more energetic and playful, and his coat is stunning! I was romanced into believing that the "holistic" foods were so much better than Hills. But boy am I glad that I gave this a try, and so is Seamus. Thank you Hills for making a superior product that actually delivers on its claims!

I adopted a dog from the shelter to be trained as a service dog. When I tried to get her to eat the food they were giving her at the shelter she refused it. The day I started mixing her food with yours her interest in food went up and up. And now she eats it happily. She is gaining weight as she skeletal when we got her and she gaining some weight now. She is looking quite healthy and is a very happy dog.

Best Food for the health of my dogs

I actually purchase Science Diet dry dog food for both my 3 year old lab and my Dachshund Mix puppy. They both love the food and love it as training treats for praise also. I use the food because it was one of only two brands highly recommended by my veterinarian, who I trust immensely, and if she says to use it, I use it! She tells me Science Diet is very good because they keep their ingredients consistent, unlike most other brands. My dogs have a lot of energy, are fit and trim and very happy.
