My angel loves this! Highly recommend it
I switched from Royal Kanine and she prefers this better than Royal Kanine or any other food really. She's gotten really picky about what she eats and this is something she really loves. by on 04/25/2023

My puppy likes this food
After doing some research on food for my new puppy, I decided to try out Hill's Science Diet for puppy's. I noticed my puppy was actually eating the food and not letting it just sit there. She can eat it easier than other dog foods and has no problem digesting it. So I am a very satisfied customer and will continue to buy Hill's Science Diet throughout my puppy's growth. Thank You! by on 09/24/2015

My puppies love this product

My toy red poodle loves his food and he is growing up happy
I have given my puppy this food since he came to live with us and now his "big" sister (toy white poodle) eats this food also and our vet says he is growing up happy and healthy due to a great diet and a happy home life. I recommend this food and we will use Hills through all stages of our dog's life. Thanks for a great product! by on 10/21/2014
Nice product
My toy poodle was a bit apprehensive at first to try the Science Diet Toy Puppy dry food, but after hand feeding her a few pieces, she will go to the bowl and chomp away! It's a nice size for her and if it's too hard, adding some warm water can soften it up easily. Since we have only had to get her 1 bag of the product so far (it was the 15.5lb bag), she hasn't gone thru too much. When we first purchased the product, the price was a little high, but we received an in-store coupon for $5 off. If these coupons were given out each visit, or the price was lowered a bit, I would be even more satisifed with this product. by on 09/15/2014
Tasty food for the littlest pups
I recently adopted a fox terrier mix puppy and needed a great food for him. We tried the Small Breed and Toy puppy food and he loves it! He had also tried a different brand and some of side effects of the food were not pleasant. After a week on the new food, all unpleasant side effects had nearly disappeared. He is almost 8 months old and we are in the process of switching him to the Small Breed and Toy adult food. I have never had a dog so eager for his meal. Great food. by on 09/04/2014
My pets love this food
I have tried multiple dry pet foods, and this is the only brand my pets will eat. I use not only the dry puppy food for my yorkie. I also use Science Diet Light Little Bites for my adult yorkies. I have to say that the dog food is not only healthy and full of nutrients, it is tasty. I recommend this brand to all my friends and family. by on 08/20/2014
This product is good for healthy development
My vet recommends science diet and my puppies love it so of course I want for them. Would love to have more coupons for science diet by on 08/19/2014

My chihuaha mix loves this
My little dog loves this dog food, so much so, she will take a mouthful and place it around the house so that she can eat it wherever she is. by on 04/07/2014
Picky multipoo is eating!
Our picky multipoo is actually eating. Since she started teething a few months back she stopped eating. The food she came from the breeder was no longer tasty to her. I have spent hundreds of dollars trying to find something she likes. Found this food and decided to give it a try. I couldn't believe she ate it! This food does have a different smell than most dry kibbles. I think it might be the addition of pork meal and pork fat that is appealing to her. I know all dogs are different but this food worked for us. The tiny kibble is also a plus! Thanks hills for making a food my pup will eat. by on 01/16/2014
Hershey loves his food.
The food is small enough for him to eat but big enough for him to crunch on to keep his teeth clean. He also eats the big square food and it really keeps his teeth clean. He will eat a full serving because it taste good and smells good to him. Thank you by on 12/19/2013
This product has user friendly packaging
I LOVE the velcro closure of the dry dog food bag. This makes is easy for my kids as well as myself to make sure the bag is properly closed so the food stays fresh. Thanks! by on 12/03/2013

Puppy Loves it
The food is small enough for her to chew and is very palatable for her. She can't wait for feeding time by on 11/01/2013
My yorkie loves the taste!
Science Diet is a healthy and nutritious food for our puppy. He loves the tastes. by on 10/19/2013
Love it for my tiny maltese
This food is great and I love that it is specially formulated for my tiny maltese. The packaging is bright and shows not only my dog's breed (Maltese# but also the very close in size Yorkie. This give me a little more confidence than if I'd chosen a standard puppy formula. I know my tiny girl has special nutrition requirements that are not the same as, for instance, my brother's beagle or great pyrenees. Just because they might be the same age, doesn't mean their nutrition needs are the same. A great thing that I noticed about the price is that my tiny dog does NOT eat much food so it is not as expensive as I had first thought. The bag lasts about 3-5 weeks since my little girl is so tiny. #2.5 lbs, expected to be less than 4 lbs when she is grown) by on 10/07/2013
Our puppy loves this food.
Our 4 month old puppy loves Science Diet. It is the only food he has ever eaten. We even use small amounts of this food as his treat for good behavior. by on 09/26/2013
Our Scottie Loves It!
Our vet highly recommends Science Diet for pets. We want what is best for our dog - so we went with Science Diet. It is a great source of nutrition that we are proud to serve our puppy. Our Scottie loves her kibble and nudges the bowl to let us know when she needs more! by on 09/26/2013
Even better combined
My puppy loves the dog food, but does not respond as well to the dry alone, so we mix a tablespoon of wet food in with his dry, and he gobbles it up. by on 09/24/2013
what i fed my puppy
when my yorkie was a puppy she ate this and seemed to like it fine, so when she grew up i continued to feed her Science Diet brand food. i have 2 new yorkie puppies and going to feed them this also. by on 09/11/2013
Small bites dog food
My dogs enjoy the tiny pieces of food since they are toy breeds. They like the flavor. A bit expensive, but most good dog foods are these days. by on 08/23/2013
Food my puppy loves!
I did a lot of research before buying food for my puppy and I started with a brand I heard was good. When I put it in her bowl mixing it with the food she got from her breeder, she wouldn't eat the pieces of the new food. Not knowing what to do, I went to a pet store and said I needed a food with out byproducts and healthy for my puppy. She went to Science Diet and said they had reformulated it. My puppy loved it so much that she couldn't wait until we got home. She manged to tear open the package. We won't go to another food brand. The only switch we'll make is going to a Science Diet adult food when needed. by on 06/29/2013
My Yorkie Loves It
When I originally got my puppy at 8 weeks she was on another brand of puppy food and was not eating that well, my vet suggested that I switch her food to Science Diet Puppy small bites and she loved it. At 5 months I changed her food to Science Diet Ideal Balance puppy thinking it would be better for her. She started to be a "picky eater" so I switched her back to SD puppy small bites and she is eating normal again. My sister also has a yorkie who is a very picky eater and was feeding her a very expensive brand of food. I suggested she try Science Diet and her Yorkie loves it also. by on 02/26/2013
Happy Pug!
From the very first day Sheila loved it. The kibbles are small and they were easy for her to chew. She isn't a year yet, so she will be on it till then, when we switch to the adult. She is a happy Pug Puppy! I highly recommend this. by on 02/20/2013
My puppy loves it
My 5 month old boston terrier has only been feed this brand since I got him from the breeders, he love it. Never had a hard time getting him to eat all his food. The vet recomened it to me, so I trust it. He is growing like a weed, so the nutrition is obviously there. Thanks science diet, me and Bobbyjo love it. by on 05/22/2012
Healthy and Happy Puppy
Our "Morkie" (Maltese-Yorkie Mix) has only been fed by us Science Diet Dry Puppy Food. Last month our pup had a reunion with his parents and two siblings. We were all shocked to see that at only 10 months old he was almost twice the size of his parents and siblings. Thanks Science Diet for helping us to have a Happy and Healthy puppy! by on 05/17/2012
My pug puppy loves this food
I really recommend this puppy food. My puppy loves it! He directs me to the bowl and then to the next room where the food is kept. I also feel very good about being able to provide a quality product for my little guy! by on 05/16/2012
This product is great for growing puppies
I used to buy puppy/dog food at a large convenience store. I didn't care which type of food I bought and would often change the types of food I bought to give my dogs some variety. What I found was those dog foods would upset my dog/puppies stomach and they would not keep the food down. I would even buy the higher priced puppy/dog foods and would end up with the same results. A puppy I had just purchased was ill and ended up in the hospital for a week and the vets office fed him Science Diet puppy. When we brought him home I didn't want to upset his diet so I bought Science Diet puppy for all of my dogs, old and young. All of the dogs loved it and they stopped vomiting their food after eating it. That meant the world to me to know they loved it! by on 05/16/2012
My Puppy Loves It
My puppy loves eating this food and will gobble it down at once. I have seen him eat other brands faster but this one is the best for him. by on 04/27/2012
