Cooper's Favorite

Cooper is a 22 month old miniture Dachshund. He receives 1.8 oz twice a day of Hill's Science Diet " Perfect Weight for small and mini adult dogs". He is and has been 15 lbs which meets his vets requirements. And he is a happy, loveable little boy. by on 03/01/2023

I use Hills products because my Jack Russell female terrior has Diabetes, Pancreatic infection and just developed cataracts on both eyes, causing her to start losing her sight. She is doing, as well as can be expected with all those ailments. Anytime I try serving her some other brand, her blood readings go thru the roof, and her better qualities start to disappear. She'd eat the whole can each time, if I'd let her. by on 09/19/2019

I just stared my pup on this food today and absolutely loves this product. I will continue to use this for my fur baby. by on 02/21/2018
my dog loves it and i love her feeling her best

I tried to switch to a different brand and noticed my papillon wasn't as happy and quick on her feet while on it. This food is something I know she loves and that I can trust to be good for her. She stays so healthy on it and we'll never try switching away again. by on 01/22/2016

product is supposed to keep dogs satisfied between meals

this produce says it will keep your pet satisfied between meals - it does not - my dog is hungry within two hours of feeding. don't make a claim that is not true. by on 05/28/2015

Dog loves it & vet recommends it

Our Yorkie loves the food and treats. Our vet recommends it by on 10/14/2014
Only food my dog likes. Eating Science Diet since a puppy.

My dog likes Science Diet so much, when his bowl spills & I'm trying to sweep up the mess, he races me to the spill & tries to eat it before I get it cleaned up. He has lots of energy & a shiny coat, which I think I can contribute to the Hill's product. by on 09/11/2014
Keeps My Chihuahua Healthy and Trim

My Chihuahua put on weight after a dog sitter overfed her for weeks. I switched her to Hill'sยฎ Science Dietยฎ Adult Small & Toy Breed Light and she was back to a healthy weight in less than 2 months. Her coat is shinier too! by on 08/22/2014
Been using this product since day one!

Jaycie has been eating Hill's Science Diet since the day we brought her home as a puppy. It was recommended by our vet and we are glad we took the advice. She is now eating the small bites lite because she had gained some weight over the years. She likes the lite as well as she liked the regular. She's a very healthy dog and I believe part of the reason is because of what she eats. Great product! by on 08/21/2014
This product is well tolerated

My dog does real well with this food. I haven't tried wet food because I heard dry food is better. Thank you by on 08/10/2014

if my dog loves it I love it, he has been more active this eating this dog food, his coat is shiny, he runs more around the yard, before he use to go out and come right back in by on 07/16/2014
Love Science Diet

Good Product

we use Science diet for all of our animals even the one that is o a prescription diet. A good product. by on 04/19/2014
This product gets the job done!

Great food for my finicky eating Terrier. He loves the taste, and never has a problem with digesting. Love this brand of food. Keep up the good work. by on 04/18/2014
Easy Close!

The new Science Diet packaging is now easy to close! Science Diet is using a velcro strip for closing the package. It is much easier to close then before. It's easier to put the two strips together to seal and know it will not pop open. by on 01/22/2014
LOVE the velcro closure

Good food for your pets . Have bought all kinds but my little "Honey" prefers the dry science diet for toy and small breeds. I really like the Velcro closure. Works so much better than the zipper closure. Sincerely, Carol by on 01/21/2014
Love this food!!!

My dogs love this food. I have two West Highland White Terriers and one of my dogs recently had a surgery and was switched to science diet. She loves this food and the taste. This food has given her more energy and she even acts like a puppy again. Thanks, Science Diet for making such good food for the dogs I love. by on 01/07/2014
Hershey loves Science Diet light (small bites)

Our 20 pound miniature Schnauzer is an eager eater - thanks to your quality food! He is fed 3 times/day (when we eat) & runs in small circles in front of his dish to let us know he's ready to eat! by on 10/30/2013
Food for picky eaters

My three little rescue dogs are picky eaters. My vet recommends only Hills Science Diet, therefore, that is all I give my "babies." My little Maltese "Angel" is on K/D and she likes the wet but not much for the dry. My Cairns, "Rascal" and "Callie" eat the light, dry and wet, and they love it. I know it is good for them, keeps their weight in check, and helps keep them healthy. by on 09/09/2013
started as a puppy because vet recommened and he love it

started with regular small bites for him, have now switched to light because he is too heavy by on 09/08/2013
the calorie count is low............that's Great

I do not judge by what a product has...............i judge by what it does not have. Poor taste, Small package, poor selections, High(Over) price. Other words - Value. AJB by on 09/07/2013
Weight Control Seems to be working

This product seems to have leveled off my little man's weight after we got down to the needed weight. Unfortunately the cost may prohibit me from continuing him on this diet although I'd love to. by on 08/11/2013
Overall great product

We switched because our Maggie had bladder crystals and the vet recommended Science Diet. The crystals went away and all 3 dogs love it. We now have them on the lite and they continue great health. by on 05/29/2013
Buffy loves it!

My dog, Ramsay, can't wait to get his breakfast and dinner now - he loves his Science Diet Food so much. You have made him a very happy boy. Thank you. by on 12/19/2012
helps maintain weight

I've tried all kinds of dog food for my maltese to keep her weight down. because she would put a little to much weight on for her size with the other dog foods,even though she is very active everyday. I gave the small bites light a try. She loves the small bites and her weight is perfect according to her vet. she is 7 years old and looks like a young dog. I will never change away for science Diet. by on 08/23/2012

Our rescue small mixed breed, Tiffy, is a tad overweight...although I don't know table scraps....but my husband does treat them to a couple of healthy bisquits every I figured it wouldn't hurt to put her on this lower calorie food....she loves it! by on 08/21/2012
My dogs love this product!

I purchased this food for my two Chihuahuas. They love it! It is reasonably priced and my dogs like it better than their old food. They are very happy with it. I highly recommend this product! by on 08/14/2012
Wonderful product! My dog has been able to loose weight on

Wonderful product! My dog has been able to loose weight on this and has loved the taste by on 05/18/2012
This product is perfect for small dog breeds

Since putting my dog on the science diet adult small & toy breed light, she has lost the weight that was recommended by the vet. She now stays at her ideal weight and she absolutely loves her food that is specially made for her breed. Thanks Science Diet!! by on 05/17/2012
Great for small dogs

I began giving my male Chihuahua this when he started becoming overweight. The light food has helped reduce his weight & keep him active. He loves the taste! Thank you Hill's Science Diet! by on 05/16/2012
Best food ever for small dogs

I have a miniture Dachshund. when he became an adult, he started gaining weight. When the new toy and small breed light came out I tried it. After just a couple weeks we saw the difference in him. He's back to a slim weight. Thanks Hills ! by on 05/16/2012
Best product for my small dogs

I have a minpin, boston terrier, and a schnauzer. They all enjoy the taste of Science Diet. I started with the small bites lite and found the toy breed lite. The boston and schnauzer are over 13 yrs olds and still play with the 3 yr old minpin like a puppy. The food keeps them active and their coats shine. I have always trusted Science Diet with all of my puppies and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend any of Sciene Diet's foods. You just have to find the one that fits your pup's needs. by on 05/16/2012

Diet Food in Name Only

I bought this product once by accident. I usually fed my dogs the Adult Small Bites. My older dog would usually wait to eat a few hours after I put her food down, but when I gave her the light food, she ate it immediately. It is clear that she prefers the light food over the regular formula. by on 05/16/2012
This version is great!

Our vet recommended our 3 pomeranians go on a "diet". Awesome for small breeds to chew! by on 05/16/2012
this product fills my pets stomach and keeps him in good

This Science Diet Adult small & toy breed light is a very great product not only is it light on calories but provides a filling expierence and keep my pet healthy and gives him a very nice healthy coat. I recommend this food to any pet owner for good health of there pet and to provide a long healthy life. by on 05/16/2012
Yummy for the Tummy

My girls, Mollie and Minnie are dachshunds who have a bit of a weight problem. Minnie is four and has lost almost three pounds so far on this food. She has a few more to go but is looking right fine. Mollie, who is two is more finicky in her food, but she likes this. We haven't lost any weight as of yet, but she will. I would recommend this highly for those who are a bit "fluffier" than they should be. by on 05/16/2012
Bite size pieces are perfect for my Pug!

The tiny pieces of kibble in the Small &Toy Breed formula are perfect for my Pug, who has difficulty chewing. I also appreciate the fact that it comes in a Light version so I can keep her weight down, as Pugs tend to be on the chunky side! Great product all around! by on 05/16/2012
