Best food for my Boston's

Shiba Inu Puppy
My puppy has been on Hills Science Diet Puppy Small Bites Chicken and Barley since he was just 10 weeks old. I liked that it was small bites that he could manage. I switched him over to the Hills Science Diet Small Bites gradually. He was on Pedigree Puppy, that had to be softened. My vets advised me to only give him kibble and not the wet foods. We have had no issues with puppy poop on this brand. He poops twice a day and only very rarely has poop accidents. I had a Shiba Inu before, and prefer this brand because this breed tends to get allergies. My older Shiba Inu also did well on Hills Science. by on 05/21/2021
She was pooping (loosely) 8 to 9 times a day. Took 6 days to switch foods. NEVER in my life seen a change in a dog....more energy, shiny coat, happy and pooping down to 3 or 4 times soild stool. It like I have a new dog. Hills science diet IS THE BEST!!!! by on 09/01/2018

Puppy small bites
I love this food it is great my puppy is shiny and healthy. It is pricy. Regular customers should be able to be on a coupon mailing list then that would be amazing. by on 06/23/2017
Amazed at the Quality!
Our vet recommended Science Diet when we got our new puppy. We had an older dog that ate a different brand, so we were skeptical. But after trying the food out, we were amazed at the quality difference in even the kibble pieces. Then we read the ingredients difference and decided. Our new puppy will stay on Science Diet! by on 06/27/2016
Great food
We have a German Shorthaired that is 5 months old and we've fed her Science Diet puppy since day 1. Dog is lean, active, and loves the food! A friend's pup (same age) came over, and they complained of their goldendoodle of not eating the food that came with her. She ate Science Diet like it was Thanksgiving Turkey and she was the Bumperson's hounds. Only complaint is that I can't seem to feed my dog enough. She's 30 lbs of lean running machine, and she is up to 5 cups/day of food, not an ounce of fat on her. by on 01/23/2016
Welsh Terrier enjoys his puppy food
My 10 month old Welsh Terrier has been eating the puppy small bites since he became a family member at 9 weeks. I could not ask for a better development of a puppy. He is VERY high energy and this dog food gives him the nourishment he needs for growth and good health. Zak loves the taste, and he is a real "chow hound". by on 09/19/2015
Small Bites - Yum
I recently rescued 2 Jack Russell's and this is the food that I elected to feed them. They love it! Their coat is soft and shiny from eating Science Diet Small Bites for puppies. I just wish that there were more coupons available for this. by on 09/09/2015
Great for our 4 month old puppy
Thank you so much for providing a trustworthy brand that not only satisfies my dog, but also assures me that he is getting the key nutrition he needs. We started him on you science diet as soon as we brought him home from the rescue shelter. We care about our puppy alot and it eases our mind knowing we're using a good product. by on 08/01/2015
Puppies first food
We tried other brans of puppy food, but Hills is the only one they went crazy for. Even mom and dad are now Hills fans as well, they are all healthy and well. by on 07/03/2015
Science Diet has been a staple for our cats and dogs for 20
As a young adult my roommate had a Doberman. He was fed Science Diet Dry Dog food. I asked, "why Science Diet?" I was told, "When he was a pup he was on another food. He ate and ate. He left big piles in the yard and never seemed to have enough food. I figured it must be because how fast he is growing. When he was an adult things were still the same. I asked my vet if it was normal for him to eat so much and still want more. He said the food I was feeding him was full of fillers and not enough of what the dog needed. He suggested Science diet. It was amazing to see the change. After a few weeks the dog was satisfied with his daily serving. He was more playful, left less piles in the yard, and less gassy." A short time later Bear, American Eskimo puppy was added to our family. I took her to her first vet appointment and he suggested Science Diet for a healthy start. Bear lived a long healthy, playful life. Since then I have been sold on Science Diet for a healthy choice for our animals. We have since then added a dog, Bandit, a cat, Mew and our new puppy Cassie to our family. Science is the Best Choice for our Family Pets : ) by on 03/08/2015
Great food! Great value!
We are very happy to feed our puppy Science Diet. Great value - price. "small bites" is a great size for a fast eating puppy! by on 01/03/2015
new puppy
We finally made the leap and got a new dog. we have always been dog people. Our last dog passed away two years ago and it was a very difficult decision to start all over. We ended up with an adorable border collie blue heeler mix. Having been out of the game a while we went with our Vet's recommendation of Science Diet for puppies, he gave us two bags to try and told us it was what he fed his dogs. He explained what to look for in dog foods, nutritional values, content, etc and the big difference between them. Our puppy loves it. We feed her the recommended amount and she cleans the bowl. It is easy on her young teeth and small enough to get it down in one sitting. She hasn't had any issues digesting it and no stomach issues. I am a customer for life and will continue to use Science Diet products as she gets older. by on 12/30/2014
This dog is great my dogg and cat just love this brand :) by on 12/17/2014
Our new pound puppy!
I have been feeding Science Diet C/D to my cat for years so there was no question as to what type of food I would be feeding our new puppy. She's been on it for about 2 weeks and she's already gained 3 lbs. feeding her 2 1/2 cups a day her coat is nice & shinny & she's full of energy. I have compared other brands and they call for 5 1/2 cups of food a day for her size so I know Science Diet may cost more but I feed a lot less so I believe it equals out and I know it's a good food for her. by on 12/16/2014
Great product
Quality, nutritional product that my pet enjoys eating by on 12/10/2014
This product is great!
I have a blue healer femal and she has been on Science diet since 10 weeks old. I tried a couple other brands and she was picky and didnt like them and would defecate more while eating the other brands. I switched her to Science Diet and she has a great appetite, looks great, shiny coat and doesnt go to the bathroom as often and just looks super! by on 11/03/2014
my puppy seems to enjoy her food. wish cost was less
my dog really does enjoy the food we give her. I buy the large bag of small bites and I understand that is healthier than other name brand dog foods but I wish the price was cheaper that what I pay by on 10/19/2014
Overall, I believe this is a good product.
I use this product and the advantage. My vet wants me to give my dogs the advantage but I can only it get it from the vet. I would like to see this product in the stores. It is very expensive when you have 2 dogs. I do wish you would send coupons 2 times a month to e-mails to help with the cost. by on 09/20/2014
The food has provided good health and fine coat.
Puppty was adopted at which time I was provided with a small bag of this food. I have continued to purchase as puppy is doing qute well with health, weight and a nice coat. Plan on continuing to the next level of food. by on 09/13/2014
Puppy Loves Hill's
My puppy was being fed the Hill's Science Diet food at the Cleveland Animal Protective League and they recommended we continue feeding her the same dry food. She loves it! We use it for training in addition to meals because the little kibble bites are small enough that she can have an extra handful without adding too many calories to her diet but still learn her commands, but it's tasty so she has an incentive to listen. She's getting all of the vitamins and nutrients she needs because she's strong, fast, and her fur looks beautiful. We'll be transitioning to the various stages of the dry dog food as she gets older, but we'll definitely continue to purchase Hill's for her. by on 09/11/2014
My mini Aussie loves this food!
My aussie is thriving on this food! She loves it. Hands down, no better choice! by on 05/04/2014
Love this product
We tried the natural and organic puppy food and had nothing but problems. We have her Hills Science Diet puppy food and her stool and tummy have been great and we no longer have any problems. Thank you to our vet for suggesting it to us. I do not think we will ever change brands. by on 05/01/2014
Food that my puppy will eat
This food is a food m puppy eats other foods he left in the dish and walked away. I put this food in his dish and he comes running ready to eat. by on 04/30/2014
Oakley loves it!
We have a 7 month old Bo-Jack (Boston/Jack Russel Mix) She is a very spunky puppy full of energy and always on the Go! We started off with a cheap puppy chow and not only did she hate it but it gave her really bad gas. Since switching to Science diet she absolutely loves it and best of all the bad gas is gone! by on 04/29/2014
My yorkie puppies were eating this without any problems by 5
I love that this was the perfect size bite for my puppies. They loved the food and have thrived on it. by on 04/23/2014
The small bites are great for my small dog.
My new puppy had no problem adjusting to this food. by on 04/11/2014
Best Dog Food On The Market!
My husband and I have fostered puppies that are waiting to be sent to their new homes for YEARS. Hill's Science Diet is the absolute best dog/puppy food available for several reasons: 1.) Perhaps it costs a little more, but because it is packed with the proper nutrients, the puppies eat less, so the value turns out to be much MORE than any other brand. 2.) It is gentle on the digestive tract; many breeds have sensitive tummies. I have NEVER had an issue with our puppies digesting Science Diet. And as a result of the gentle formula with excellent nutrition, the puppies' eliminations are fewer, smaller, and always solid, making clean up much simpler. 3.) Picky puppies still love the taste of Science Diet. With other brands, they eat a little, and leave the rest. Then they find sticks and bugs in the yard to eat in order to supplement themselves and reduce their hunger. With Science Diet, the bowl is empty before I know it. I don't have to worry about the puppies eating things that they shouldn't. (Example: My shoes.) Thank you Hill's Pet Nutrition! I will not ever go back to any other brand! And I always encourage new pet owners to go with Science Diet! by on 04/08/2014
I like the packaging plus quality ingredients and made in
good nutrition premium dog food for my beloved pet by on 04/08/2014
Hill's Science Diet Small Bites Adult and Hill'sยฎ Science
My 9year old cockapoo has been on the small bites for 9 years, now with my 6 month old Cavapoo puppy I have her on the puppy food{as mentioned above}...I was recommended by my Vet for the older dog and found the puppy food and am giving that to the 6 month old puppy...They both love it. Sometimes I give the 6 month her's with a little water. If they like it then I like it. by on 03/03/2014
Pups favorite
My pup was on another higher end dog food but she didn't like it and had to make numerous trips out door. Her vet suggested science diet for puppies and she loved it. She also was doing better on this food. It's a better quality food than some top brands but the same price. The first bag was free so there was no risk in trying and I have a happy pup. by on 02/08/2014
Excellent Product
I think Science Diet is an excellent product and my babydogs love it. I feel confident I am feeding them the best food available. by on 01/30/2014
My Puppy Loves This Stuff
At just 8 weeks old, my pitbull, Mason, was already a picky eater. It felt like I purchased every brand in the pet store and my dog would starve him self instead of eating. Fortunately I was able to score a sample bag and coupon at a local event called The Big E. This product was a match made in heaven for Mason! As a puppy the small bites were perfect and he would quickly chow down when it was time to eat. Now I tend to mix a small can of wet food with this dry food and he absolutely loves it! I personally love the ingredients and quality of this brand. I wouldn't recommend anything else! Thanks Science Diet! by on 01/14/2014
Our Go-To Puppy Food
After much trial and error, this was the best puppy food we could find for our Boston Terrier. It was small enough for her, she enjoyed the taste, and we feel great about the quality. by on 01/01/2014
Good reliable product
My puppy really loves this food--she is thriving on it. by on 12/19/2013
Healthy Coat
My puppies love this. I noticed the beautiful coat they are developing. They hear the bag and get excited. by on 12/10/2013
My first Chihuahua puppy
I wanted to give my puppy a good start and tried a few different brands of dog food. I tried the Puppy Healthy Development small bites and he loves it. I want to make sure that he gets all the nutrients he needs to grow strong and healthy. So we will be sticking to this. Thanks so much for a wonderful product. Thumbs UP.... by on 10/01/2013
The dogs dig right in to this food.
Both dogs are cockers. And they tend to be picky eaters. They have been on Science Diet since we adopted then. They do not like some of the new versions but they eat this usually immediately. We mix their food with the dental version and we are happy with their weight and overall health. by on 08/06/2013
My puppies love this!!
I have two puppies and they love this food. They are so strong and healthy and being chihuahua's, they have sensitive skin, I have had no problems with that and their skin looks great. Funny thing is, even though I lay out two bowls, they take turns grabbing a mouthful out of the same bowl but never fight over it. Gotta love em!! by on 07/15/2013
Great product
This is the only dog food my puppy will eat, it's a great product; I just wish the small bites were offered in all of the Hills Science Diet foods. by on 06/30/2013
Husky Approved!
My 9 week old puppy loves this stuff. She was on another brand when I got her from the breeder but wanted to feed her a quality product. My vet has always recommended this brand and I do trust him. She looks forward to eating and I am happy I found a brand that she enjoys. by on 06/08/2013
Great value and nutritional benefits!
My miniature dachshund puppy absolutely loves the puppy small bites dry food!! She cries when I'm preparing it for her and quickly gobbles it up once I give it to her! It's the perfect size for her small teeth and the price for this high quality food is exceptional! by on 07/31/2012
The best food for my puppy
Science Diet small puppy bites is the best puppy food for my little Yorkie. Because she is a small dog, the smaller pieces are perfect for her! by on 06/27/2012
Dog eats the food, and cat no longer vomiting.
We have a 6 month old puppy. Until May we have tried several types of dog food. Beau would only eat when he was really hungry. Some time the food would be in his bowl for days. I went on line and got coupons from your company. He has been eating the food daily. His bowel is always empty, and we have now had to limit the amount of food we put into his bowl. by on 06/10/2012
Gentle on the stomach
Although the price doesn't seem great, the value is invaluable. My puppy has a very sensitive stomach, but he loves this food so much he doesn't even chew it half of the time! I would definately reccommend this to others. :) by on 06/05/2012
Science Diet Puppy Small Bites Dry Dog Food
I chose Science Diet Puppy food because my rescue puppy deserve the best. Science Diet is rich in fish oil and nourishing fatty acids and Hill'sยฎ Science Dietยฎ Puppy Small Bites dog food provides balanced nutrition to build immunity and digestive health for puppies who prefer a smaller kibble. Since my dog "Charlie" was found wandering the streets, I knew he needed extra care and love. He also needs to best nutrition to build up his immune system. He loves the food and we love him! by on 06/01/2012
This food keeps my puppy healthy and happy!
We have only had our rescue puppy for 5 weeks and had no problem introducing this puppy food into her diet. She has loved Science Diet small puppy bites and comes running when she hears me putting the food into her dish. The vet said she has good weight and is very healthy, and when he asked what we are feeding her, he said he feeds his own dogs Science Diet too. There is no better testimony than that! Thanks Hill's for a product I can trust! by on 05/31/2012
Healthy happy puppies
My puppies were weaned with Small Bites puppy. They are very small and had no problem learning to eat these little nuggets. They really enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone with tiny dogs. by on 05/29/2012
My puppy has eaten nothing but Science Diet food since birth
Dyna loves Science Diet dry food. She has tried Ideal Balance for puppies as well and enjoys it for a change of taste/pace. Our vet originally recommended Science Diet and two other high-end manufacturers but we chose Science Diet and stayed with it because Dyna enjoys it and it is good for her development in early stages of her life. One benefit that I noticed is that when she passes wind, it does not smell that much compared to her brother (who has a different owner that feeds him something other than SD). by on 05/21/2012
Great Product worth the price
I have a Jack Russell Terrier named Lucy. She has difficulity swallowing large bites. If she does swallow something large she will cough and hack violently. This product is just the right size for her. by on 05/18/2012
This is a great product!
This is our second dog that we are raising on Science Diet Dog Food. Our first dog lived a long healthy life just eating all Science Diet Dry Food and Treats. We started our new puppy from 6 weeks old on Science Diet Puppy small Bites. We love it for our puppy and so does our puppy. We know she gets a well balanced meal and will live a long healthy life. Thank You Science Diet!!!! by on 05/17/2012
Great Product
I know when I buy this product that alot of science has gone into deciding which ingredients to use for the particular stage my dog is at. I know I am getting a good product and my puppy loves it and is very healthy because of it! by on 05/16/2012

My puppy Ali loves her Science Dietยฎ Puppy Small Bites
Ali eats every bite of her food twice a day and really seems to enjoy it. by on 05/16/2012
Picky Eaters Love this food
When My Pom was 3 months old we decided to switch her to dry since it is cheaper then buying a bunch of cans. And less waste. So we started out with some off brands - yea she sniffed and troted off. I called my vet and he recommened me to try the science diet food. I also mix with a little bit of canned science diet and she loves it! by on 05/16/2012
This product is worth the money I spent on it.
My new born pup and nursing mother just LOVED this product!!! I have recomended this food to all the owners that will be taking home these pups. by on 05/16/2012
Puppy loves it
My 10 month old cairn terrier has a bit of tummy issues, We tried about 5 different puppy food including the brand the breeder was feeding him prior to us getting him. Tried this product and he actually eat's it (after his food gets placed with) and this does not upset his tummy. by on 05/16/2012
Healthy, happy puppy
As a Cavalier, Pippa eats her small bites in record time - devouring every last kiblet-- she just LOVES the taste. Her digestion is great, her coat is shiny, and she is a very healthy, happy puppy. by on 05/16/2012
Great Dog Food!
While the food is quite expensive, he does eat less of it and produces less waste! He seems to like the taste because he's never one for not eating. by on 05/16/2012
He Loves It!
Max is 8 1/2 months old. The only food he has eaten since we got him 6 months ago is Science Dietยฎ Puppy Small Bites. As a puppy, he eats 2 times per day, a total of 1 1/4 cup daily. He obviously loves it since he normally finishes his bowl in 2-3 minutes EVERY time he eats. More importantly, the vet says he is in perfect health! What more could a pet owner want than both the pet and the vet being satisfied! by on 05/16/2012
Keeps our baby Mya happy and healthy
Our little girl, Mya, came to us a very sick little girl. Between prescription Science Diet and this puppy dry food, after a couple months, she was a happy healthy little girl. This food has helped her get back on track with her weight, her skin and hair look great too. Thanks you for producing such a great products! by on 05/16/2012
My puppy loves it!
I adopted my puppy from a shelter that uses Hill's Science Diet--they sent me home with a bag, and that's been his brand ever since. I was glad to find the Small Bites version of the puppy food because he is a small dog and the larger kibble was hard for him to chew, especially when he started losing his baby teeth. All in all, the dog and I are both happy with this food! (The vet also thought that it was a good choice.) by on 05/16/2012
Food that my Puppy really loves
Bought this for my newly adopted puppy and she is really loves it! Eats it really well without having to be enticed to eat. She dances around waiting for me to put the bowl down. Looking forward to many years with Hills Science Diet in all the age-specific diets. by on 05/16/2012
