My dogs love it!

My dogs have grass allergies. We had them on grain free in another brand, but they started having digestion issues. Our vet suggested we try this. Our dogs love the flavor. They try to burrow in it when we open a new bag. Their coats are now glossy, scratching and biting has stopped, and they are no longer having upset stomachs. Hooray!

I would recommend for any senior dog!

I switched my dogs over to this diet as a recommendation by my veterinarian and I have absolutely loved it! Both of my little dogs have been on this food for about 1 year and they are both doing great. They are very energetic, their coats are beautiful, and both of them act as if they were 3 years younger! Would definitely recommend to any senior dog!

Everyone thinks my 12 year old poodle is a puppy!

My 10 lb, 12 year old poodle can be a bit of a picky eater and is typically not food-motivated but switching to this product has got him engaged with his food for the first time in his life. Since he's been on Youthful Vitality, he gets a daily case of the zoomies, something he hasn't done in years!

Excellent product!

My dog was having digestion issues with other food and my vet recommended Healthy Vitality. My dog loved it immediately and is thrilled when it is time for breakfast or dinner! I have recommended to friends with older dogs. I am so pleased that this food works perfectly for my boy! Thank you, Hills!

Tasty Husky Food

My husky loves this food. She was on another grain free food as a puppy but once she got older I was looking for a new brand and picked science diet. My previous dog was on science diet and did great on it. I trust this brand and love the new bag with the velcro top! I hope to have my girl for many years and plan to feed her the best food I can afford. Thank you science diet.

Best product!

I have a 6 year old golden retriever that started having hip problems. It was hard for her to get up after laying down or even stopped laying in bed. After taking to my vet I made the switch to science diet. And within 1-2 months I started seeing small differences. It's been a year on the food and she sleeps on the bed again. No more limping! Her coat is also 100x better. Way less visits to the groomer! Love the food!

Picky too

We have two dog who will eat everything so making sure they get the right thing is important, and we have one who will not eat anything without checking it first. Hill's appeals to all three and the bowl is always empty. We have had as many as 13 dogs, we rescue, and they have all been fed Hill's

Unsure of taste!

I have noticed that my pet is unsure of the taste. He will put in his mouth and spit out! His eating habits have changed. I don't believe he is happy with the new food. I didn't really see a change of his activity. He continues to sleep often and inactive.

VERIFIED PURCHASER

My husband is a retired veterinarian and we've used nothing but Science Diet for all our pets for well over 30 years. We were buying it back when the bags were brown and unlined! He always told clients if you care for your pet you'll either feed good quality food or spend your money on veterinary care....but you'd have an unhealthy pet. Our mother dogs always looked fit even right after giving birth, our pets always have had healthy, shiny coats, and the only problems they have had was getting in the way of cars....not a food related problem. You can't put junk in and expect to get quality of life out. We'll never feed anything else.

No more vomiting.
VERIFIED PURCHASER

We have two long hair Chihuahuas that we adopted from the shelter. We were feeding them the same dog food the shelter did, but they would throw up bile each time they ate. We switched to science diet and the vomiting stopped and they like the taste of Science Diet too. They are now more active and happier dogs!

Lively dogs!

My two small dogs have been on Hill's food for several years, and now they're eating the Hill's Canine 7+ (healthy vitality) dry food. They both eat it happily, and the 11 year old seems to have extra pep in his step since he's been on it - bounces around like a puppy sometimes! My 7-year-old Chihuahua is always spry anyway. I would give this product 5 stars, but it does seem to make the dogs' feces softer than it used to be. All in all, this seems like a good food for older dogs that is helping my guys stay active.

A+ for taste!

My dogs love the food! I'm not noticing a difference on activity level but they seem to enjoy the food a lot more. I love how small the kibble size is. It's perfect for my little ones. I'll continue to monitor their activity the next several weeks for changes.

I have my active girl back!

My female rat terrier had always been addicted to fetch, but she had started slowing down in recent years especially after the passing of our other dog. With an introduction to the new food, she has returned to her usual active self and is loving fetch once again.

Tasty food, great quality!

My Chihuahua really likes this food, the pieces are small and the food itself is very palatable. She gets excited to eat it and eats the entire portion pretty quickly. Her last food she seemed to enjoy but she would pick out various pieces and not eat them. As an older dog (almost 12) she sleeps a lot, but she does seem to have longer bursts of energy. I'm not sure if it's related to the change of food, but every night she becomes playful and wants to chase her ball, and recently it seems like she wants to play a little more exuberantly and for a longer period of time. My only concern is that the portion sizes seem to be a little large. With her last food, she was eating 1/4 per day, and was at a good weight with that much food. This food suggested she should get 1/2 cup. I've kept her on 1/4 cup per day, and she has maintained her weight. Every dog is different, however, so perhaps her metabolism and activity level are just low. Overall, I like this food, and think she has done well on it!

Amazing Results

We had been using another food designed to improve cognitive function in our 10 year old Miniature Schnauzer. We were pleased with the results we saw with that food, so when the opportunity presented itself to try the similar product from Hill's with her, we were very excited. Well, the results were far better than we ever expected. Our 10 year old schnauzer now has more energy than our 5 year old Cairn terrier and is even more eager to play, jump up on the bed with out using the pet steps, barks at strangers again and is very alert.

Pups love < 3

I have three chihuahuas over 7 years old. They are the most picky eating pups. Day one: they gobbled up the food. The small kibble was easy for them to eat yet, large enough for them to have to chew-which helps with their improved dental health-AKA dog breath. Week three: Honey has not climbed up the stairs in a little over a year. She is now running up and down the stairs and playing again at the age of 13.5. My grumpy pup, Petey, also 13.5, is happy to partake in playing as well.
