Would not purchase again

I have used Science Diet Large Breed Puppy for years. -Used with 10 digs over the years. My Great Pyrenees has been on it for 7.5 months. Switched to the "improved formula" and the dog has had stomach issues and constant diarrhea since the switch. Will unfortunately be switching to a different brand which may cause even more discomfort to my dog. Do not recommend buying.

New formula upsets tummy

My labrador puppy had been eating the large breed puppy chicken and oats recipe for almost a year now, we were unable to get the old recipe so we bought the new one and weaned him to it but it is still upsetting his stomach. He has had overly soft stools for the past 3 weeks that he has been on this food. Please bring back the old recipe, we loved the old recipe!

Causes diarrhea

I wanted to get my puppy the best food available so I started him on this. He has had consistently bad diarrhea the entire time he's been on it. I thought he was just adjusting from the breeders food to the Hills but our vet eventually told us that it's a common problem...and yet vets still recommend it? I'm frustrated because I just want the best for him and I'm disappointed because it's so hard to find one. I really wanted this to work for him but I think we're going to try purina pro plan.

The only food I will give my puppy

Smaller kibble not wanted

I found this kibble great for my mastiff, seemed to be getting all the right nutrients to make him happy and healthy, and he loved feed time. Now with the smaller kibble, he shows little interest, and when he does eat it, he swallows many whole because they're too small for him to crunch them all. Doesn't make him feel good after. Please return to the larger kibble.

?? Change of Kibble size

My dog can't eat this anymore she just throws up it is because the kibble size is too small. Very disappointed size was changed for a large breed dog

Needs a smaller kibble size

While the quality of this food is good. The kibble size is way too large and has started to give my pup problems with eating. With the kibble size smaller she ate fine but when they switched the formula again it's now hard for her to chew. The pieces are also very hard and take a long time to soften in water

New large breed kibble size

The new disc size is too small for a large breed puppy. My 60lb 5 month puppy inhales his food now. Unfortunately we will need to find another food that fits his size.

Change in Kibble size is a disappointment,

The smaller kibble size might work better for very young large breed puppies, but the big kibble was what we changed over to from a different brand when our Golden puppy was 10 months because he was losing interest in his small size puppy food. He loved the big kibble Sciene Diet for large breed puppy>1. Now we are back to a lack of interest in the new size.

They changed the food and now my dog doesn't like it.

This was the food our vet recommended and our golden retriever puppy used to go nuts for it. Recently the bag and food were changed and our golden will walk away halfway through eating. Going to be looking elsewhere for food from here on out.

Great quality!

I am raising my puppy on Science Diet LG Breed food and it is doing it's job! He is growing at a healthy pace and his health has greatly improved since i adopted him. He was very sick when i brought him home at 11months old, but now that he has been well fed and given much needed vet care, he has become a healthy, happy pet! Highly recommend science diet food! And a recent improvement that i love is they made the kernels smaller and it now comes in a plastic, velcro zip closure bag so it stays fresher!

Disappointed

My puppy loved this food! Then I noticed a downward spiral after you changed the Large Breed Puppy food flavor and kibble size. He used to gobble his food down, now he snubs it, takes a bite and spits it out. He will eventually eat it, but its a challenge. It also recommends on the bag to start slowly changing over from the old formula to the new formula, however, not sure how anyone was supposed to do this when you abruptly came out with this new bag and can not find the old.one anywhere. Extremely disappointed.

Kibble size change disappointing

My disagreement, like others, is with the size. I'm not going to switch again until after this bag because I had just switched to this, and then the second bag I got was the smaller kibble. My 10-month-old golden retriever never chewed a piece of food in the 6 months I'd had her until I got the formerly large Hill's kibbles. She was part of a large litter and then lived 4 months with four adult dogs, and she had learned some bad eating habits. She would suck down the food and then spend the next hour trying to eat every other piece of lint or whatever she could find because her brain didn't even know she'd eaten. (And yes, I tried a puzzle bowl and inserts.) The old Hill's was exactly the right size to slow her down. She chewed the food, was less anxious and hungry after eating, and generally doing great. Fortunately the bag lasted long enough to impress upon her that she didn't have to eat as fast as she possibly can, but she's back to more or less sucking down the food. It may be better for some smaller examples of young puppies, but any LARGE BREED puppies beyond a couple months should have been able to chew the larger kibble just fine, and the new kibble is ridiculously small for anything older than that. Quality of content is still good, but it's not at all the ideal food for my dog and will switch again soon. My "No, I would not recommend" is with regard to people with dogs like mine, large breed puppies who are inclined to eat too quickly, which is not that uncommon.

New Kibble Size

While I appreciate the new packaging (sealable bag), the smaller disc like kibble size is very disappointing. One of the reasons I liked this formula was because the large kibble size used to make my Akita pup chew his food. He practically inhales it now. Will be switching after this last bag.

Lab Puppy Loves It

Started feeding my Lab Puppy this food at 7 weeks old. He still loves it at 16 weeks. Kibble size was not an issue. Our Vet is very happy with his size, weight, and overall health.

Dislike the new kibble size

The packaging and size of the food was recently changed. I just got a new bag of food yesterday and my 9 month old 87 pound lab did not like the size of the new food. He spit it out and as a lab, that is very rare. He loved the larger size kibble. Now, this kibble is very thin and I noticed the age range changed from Large Breed Puppy < 1 to now Large Breed Puppy up to 18 months. Hoping my dog gets used to the texture and size but really wishing the size wouldn't have changed.

Great puppy food

We adopted a Mastiff mix in November when he was 12 weeks old, he was eating the small breed puppy food at that time due to his size. Our vet recommended that he switch over to the large breed kibble, he loves it! He has slowed down to tasting his food, not just gulping it down. I always recommend Science Diet to friends and family, we had another rescue dog who ate only Science Diet light for 12 years and a Yorker poo who eats the small breed variety.

Lab-Shar Pei mix loves this food and its larger size

This is a high quality product for a medium price. My dog loves this food after trying multiple different types of food of all price ranges.The larger pieces actually make him enjoy it more. He likes it much more than the small bite size.

Puppy loves it!!

Our Puppy loves this food - the larger kibble prevents him from gulping the food down whole. I love the crunching and chewing he's forced to do with this product. Teeth clean and teething satisfied. Perfect.

Kibble size is fine!

Yes, the kibble is larger-it's for large breed puppies. Put it in a blender with equal amounts warm water and it absorbs it within 20 seconds, turning into a fluffy gruel. My 6 week old Rottweiler/Heeler puppies love it, and are now having no problem eating it dry.

Our dog would not eat this-went days with no food

Our 6 month Golden was raised on chicken and barley. 3-4 scoops a day. Bought this variety with oats to give it a try. She ate it first day then went almost a week eating less than a scoop a day. Some days she ate nothing. Either the bag was bad or there is something about this formula. Fortunately Pet Smart has generous return policy. Took it back and got the chicken with barley. She ate 3 scoops in three hours.

My Lab loves this food!

I was recommended this product by a friend who is a vet professional. I started my chocolate lab on this food at around 7 weeks. I was worried about the size of the pieces being too large for my puppy but he absolutely loves it. He has no problems chewing or swallowing the pieces and he seems to absolutely love the taste!

Great puppy food

I was surprised at the size of the kibble. I started my Lab on this food at 7 weeks old, and he didn't have any troubles with the size of the kibble(dry). He absolutely loves this food. I am very surprised about the reviews of other larger breeds and older than my Lab having issues with this kibble. I would recommend this food for any large breed puppy.

Great Puppy food!!!

We got our 7 week old f1b golden doodle from the breeder and noted to the vet at her puppy eval that she was a little scrawny. Vet gave us a 5lb sample of this food and said we didn't have to feed as much since it is more dense with nutrients. Initially we were very turned off by the size and hardness of the kibble. We soaked it for about 10 minutes before feeding while teaching basic commands. She loved it. We immediately noticed a difference in her poop. On the breeder provided Purina Puppy Chow (moist and tender) her poop was thin and watery and it came often. On this food, it was almost immediately more normal log-like poop AND less frequent. We don't free feed. We feed per the weight schedule on the bag and divide it by two. Half first thing in the morning ~6, half in the evening ~6. She has seemed 100% satisfied with the amount we feed her. We stopped wetting the food around 10-11 weeks old once she was putting it away quickly, and frankly in hopes she would expend loads of that puppy energy crunching that kibble! She is now 14 weeks old and right at 20 lbs. Body, coat, teeth, everything is great! Highly recommend! Only reason for 4 star quality rating is the size and hardness, but this could be resolved by adding wetting instruction to the bag for very young pups!

Good Food

I was a little tentative about switching to this food for my puppy based on reviews that the kibbles were too large. The kibbles are larger than what I am used to seeing, but no problem for a large breed puppy. I would compare them to about "thumb nail" width. However, I wouldn't let that stop you from choosing this food. I would disagree with the people saying they are too hard, they seem just as hard as any dry kibble out there, just a little larger. However, my puppy is 6 months old, so I could understand puppies in their smaller stages may not like the big kibbles. My German Shorthaired is about 50lbs now and loves this food! Great nutrition profile and I plan to keep my pup on Hill's food for some time.
