Our Mini Doxie loves HSD perfect weight! He lost 5lbs on it, per vets instructions. We give 1/4 cup in am & in pm. We saw results after 3ish weeks. Such good quality food, considering switching our lab to it as well!

Bought this item for my slightly overweight Pembroke Welsh corgi. We immediately saw results and have kept him on it for the last 2+ yrs. While he is a picky eater in general, he seems to be okay with this kibble and he is in great shape thanks to the food and plenty of exercise.
by CorgMom Beth on 03/03/2023
My dogs love it. Perfect week has helped my dogs keep their weight down. I have a Chihuahua, Shih Tzu, Silky Terrier,

I have a 11 year old mini doxie and we switched her from the regular small bites to this due to store availability. Best decision ever! She lost a bit of the stubborn weight we were struggling to shed with regular walks alone. Her energy notably increased and she is SO SOFT. She didn't even seem to notice it was less food (not hungry or whining more). Even the vet says how unusually nice her coat is and what good shape she's in! I feel good feeding her this food!

My standard dachshund was overweight so we decided to try the Adult Perfect Weight, he has lost 7lbs and is back down to his normal size.

The dogs love it

My senior heeler 13 years old was not eating the dog food he had eaten for years. He was losing weight and going downhill. We thought we might lose him. Our vet recommended Adult 7+ small bites. He loves it and started eating again. He has put on weight and has made quite a turnaround. It's like a miracle to us. He is able to do his business easier and doesn't have any trouble with constipation. This is a great dog food. I have switched my other 2 dogs to Hills Adult 1-7. They love it as well. No artificial flavors or preservatives. Made in the USA. What's not to love?
by Prettyiz on 03/31/2022
The last 2 bags of food I have bought were not the original food. One bag also gave my dog dirrehea, it took her a week to get over it. I bought another bag from a different store and it was perfect. I can tell by the smell and apperence it was not the same food. Something is going on where it is produced, Someone needs to look into this matter.

I use this product to feed my dog Jill.

I use this product to help my dog Jack lose weight.
by Wes Bennett on 06/12/2021
I have a 6 year old JRT who was becoming very overweight. i tried legit every food and every exercise nothing was working. untl i bought this food, she's so muscular and strong and just healthy, my vet said she looks amazing!
by onna on 03/26/2021
I decided to try this product by chance (and reputation) and I have to say WOW. 1) my dog had bowel issues and wasn't regular. Solved. 2) she also had very bad breath. Solved. 3) the energy level of both my dogs is through the roof, which is proof that the food makes them feel great. 4) I've noticed a shine on both of their coats that they've never had before. I never really had so many noticable benefits from a dog food and I have become a loyal customer for life because of these factors.

For 5 years I have been trying several dog foods. I have 5 dogs. 4 of which are Italian Greyhounds. One of the Italian Greyhounds has had a weight issue ever since he was fixed. He had problems with his no. 2's for these past 5 years...always straining while he went. Finally I tried Hill's Perfect Weight and remarkably he has had normal no. 2's. It is amazing!!! After so many dog foods this formula works like a gem for my dog. Also, he and the other dogs have lost some weight as well with Hill's Perfect Weight. I am truly impressed. All 5 dogs love the Perfect Weight brand as well.
by Robert the Artist on 11/12/2019
My miniature dachshund has been eating this for almost two months and the vet told us today he's already lost 2lbs! Our previous dog food had unfortunately caused too much weight gain and my dog is a very picky eater, so it took trying several kinds before we found this that he seems to really enjoy. I'm definitely a happy dog mom knowing that he's losing the weight he needs to and I don't have to worry about whether or not he'll actually eat his food every day anymore!
by K on 09/07/2019
My dachshund is 14 pounds overweight. We have used it for the past month and he went to vet today for his bordetella. He lost 7 pounds!
by Peanut's owner on 08/03/2019
Our 10 year old male Shih Tzu had been difficult to feed once the puppy food was gone. So we have used Science Diet at the suggestion of his favorite doctor (vet). The Senior Food is his favorite (maybe because it has a strong "smell"). Thanks for making good food all these years!.
by parents of Ernie. on 04/02/2019
Mickey farts constantly while on this food. Holy moly. He poops 10+ times a day and makes the entire house smell like rotting eggs. He loves it, but he also loves garbage, so I can't tell. He's lost weight on it, though. Can't run around too much since he's an old man with arthritis *and* asthma (since he was younger)
by Dani on 02/27/2019
How could you not love the VELCRO closure and yes it does still keep the food very, very fresh!
by TeddyB on 10/18/2018
Will not feed my dog anything else.She has more energy and looks better then she ever had.
by Superchick on 10/05/2018
My cockapoo has had some serious systemic joint problems for the last 3 years. He was a rescue we have estimated his age to be about 11 years. We've had him 7 years. He was to the point of constantly holding his right rear leg up to avoid the pain when walking. He was on pain meds and anti- inflammatories as well as phycox. I started him on this food in February this year. I noticed in April he was putting weight back on that leg after 3 years. He now walks on all four legs and does not favor that rear leg any longer. The only changes the past few months was his food. ( I previously fed them Ideal Balance) I am more than pleased with the results of the nutrition in this food, and what it has done for my dog!
by Bizzylady on 05/18/2018
my dog, yorkie/chihuahua, 9 yrs old, eats this food with or without can food added. First time she has eaten a weight loss dry food, and i have tried many brands (picky eater, especially when it comes to weight loss food) She is only about a lb overweight. So glad i decided to try it.
by chorkiemom on 02/05/2018
This food has balanced the weight of my 2 chihuahuas. The 3rd will be eating it soon as he is less than a year old and still eats Science small breed puppy (he has been neutered and has gained weight). They love the taste. I think it also allows them to have a little more food without gaining excess weight. My Vet always comments on how stable and perfect their weight is (he sees a lot of overweight small breed dogs). My dogs are healthy and happy on this food. I have recommended it to friends and family with overweight dogs.
by Becky on 02/03/2018
My dog got sick a couple of years ago and had a few overnight stays at the vet. This is where I was introduced to the brand Science Diet. He loves it! I am so pleased with his continued good health and I do feel eating a nutritious dog food like Science Diet has certainly played a role in it.
by kim3 on 10/17/2017
I was very surprised when my most picky dachshund actually loves this food! He's been losing weight and I actually see a change in his demeanour! Thanks Hills for creating a food that my babies love!!
by kharbin on 09/27/2017
Love every thing but the non recyclable packaging.
by ReviewNickname on 09/15/2017
I have a small rescue that caters to senior dogs. I like the bite size for those with few or no teeth. I just wished the Hills Science Diet donations to rescues and shelters would include this food selection. What a difference it would make for us.
by dogheaven on 08/11/2017
Have fed my dogs for a few years with Active Longevity since they are older now and they eat it right up. Price is right too. Thanks.
by Millard on 06/26/2017
I bought this a month ago. Our 1yr Chihuahua/ Terrier mix has joint issues that started at 9mo. Supplements upset her stomach. This has done wonders for the poor puppy's hips!
by KnappMom76 on 03/31/2017
All three of my dogs LOVE it!! It's good to know they really enjoy their food.
by Specialkmom76 on 03/06/2017
It's I bit more then most but it's worth the money and I'm not saying a lot probably for Baltimore maybe three bucks more something to that effect but the whole thing of it is is this is better food than the cheaper Brands that's the reason why I will pay a little more for this food his coats nice I had one bad experience he was allergic to one of the foods that I had bought him in a pet store was nice enough to give me my food back and replace it with something else but no I can't complain on on this my dog really likes his food. Thanks for the coupons Hill's this will help me out an awful lot I don't have a lot of money so this this would be a godsend thank you so much
by Ooooo on 02/21/2017
The food does not stay very fresh with the new velcro closure. The Best Before date code is 04 2018 M0710206 BB 252.
by Nadia on 12/08/2016
I have a picky Schnauzer, that won't eat just any food. I've always fed my dogs SD. This particular product, she will eat. I mix it with veggies and meat and she eats the whole thing. What's convenient, I have to put her medication inside her food. So far, I haven't had any issue's. She gets complimented on her shiny coat. I'm ask on what type of dog food I use. Great product and have been using it since the 90's. Best food in the market.
by Naline on 10/18/2016
love this product had bought this a month ago and my dog who is a Min Pin was over weight and bloated from his other band of dog food and I need to do something he's going to be 11 years old next month and within just a month looks and is prancing around its just amazing now
by Stacey73 on 09/15/2016
I have a German Shepherd who has bad hips, getting worse and worse. He is on medicine but this food also helps with his movement and his coat. I can tell a difference when I give him this food. He moves better and his coat is much shinier.
by Dee1960 on 07/18/2016
Our chunky-monkey really loves this food. Helps him keep the weight off and brought the added benefit of no more gas.
by RyanF on 06/15/2016
I have had a hard time getting the extra pounds off of my Schnauzer/Dachshund mix. In about 3 months he has gone from 30lb to 27lb since switching to Perfect Weight - very happy with this product!
by Winstonsmom on 05/17/2016
Our dog loves Science Diet food. I wanted to write about the new closure. That new seal just is fantastic. The way it opens and closes is definitely a great improvement in packaging.Way to go!
by Al 39 on 05/02/2016
I have a Chihuahua that I rescued from a breeder. Cricket was 8 when I adopted her and had had that many litters of puppies. She has a hernia bigger than a golf ball. When I took her to the vet for an exam they had to pull all of her teeth they were so bad. Since I started feeding Hill's Science Diet Adult 7+ Active Longevity Small Bites Cricket's health has improved dramatically. She has perked up and is a happy girl. I can't believe the difference it has made. Thanks so much!
by Sugarfoot on 04/21/2016
My pup is picky, and she loves this food. If she's happy, I'm happy

This is the only product that I have had my pet on for 14 years! Her skin and coat are always in great condition. The product has not ever been recalled and I always feel confident that I am feeding my dog, which is my baby, the best food for her all around.
by MRSB on 12/17/2015
I am proud that my French Bull Dogs (Pied, black and white) are very happy and healthy eight year old male and female (litter mates). I began using this product when I bought/adopted them at four months of age, and they have had very good overall health. Their coats smell great and are shiny; healthy, perky, shiny eyes; they are alert, and happy!! They are eight years old, and I carefully measure their food twice daily, and we have had excellent weight grade cards for the last few visits now. Thank you very much for your quality and care for animals.
by catmando2015 on 10/23/2015
a good product. my dogs love it. It is a good brand. is trustworthy. highly recommended by veterinarians.
by carlos63 on 10/11/2015
Appears she has more energy, haven't had her on it all that long, just started using it a few weeks ago.
by CCKM on 10/06/2015
We have four dogs that have all been given Science Diet since day 1, ranging in age from 7-11. One was adopted and I noticed after switching his food to Science Diet, his coat was brighter and more colorful, and softer. We started with Advanced Fitness but now that all of them are over 7 we've switched to the adult. My dogs all love this food and have never turned their noses up at it.
by NaeNae on 09/30/2015
our dogs used to have digestive problems. Science Diet has put a end to that.
by 4Dogs on 09/26/2015
We are very concerned about product quality and safety. Our vet recommended Science Diet and we are confident we are feeding our dogs safe, nutrious food
by nybabe2 on 09/23/2015
As my Welsh Terrier was aging, I was looking for a dry food product that would provide the proper balanced diet as he aged. So I researched on line and determined that this specific "mature" >7 was definitely something that I wanted to try for him. He not only liked the flavor, but he would also eat it dry with no added canned dog food. He was beginning to have some aging problems, but his last yearly check ups have been good with no major health problems except the beginning of cataracts. Beaux hopefully with proer diet and management will live to be an old man.
by Reddie on 09/19/2015
My dog really seems to enjoy food time but of course it's a little pricey.
by ksmith on 09/17/2015
Bob will eat just about anything but I have to admit since he's been on "Hills" he been as "regular" as any dog can hope for. Your coupon program is also quite generous I just wish it were easier to access. That coupon site it takes you to is so insecure and has so many cookies attached to it I will not partake.
by MeLori on 09/14/2015
Will continue to use with all my dogs. This dog food is the best . I would never give my dogs anything else. This food has everything I need for them to be healthy and at the age my pet is he needs only the best
by Karla67 on 09/13/2015
It's so nice to buy a product that you don't have to worry that it will be recalled and that our pets are always safe.
by Jean70 on 09/13/2015
my dogs love the taste and I love how well they do on it
by iamsherri on 09/07/2015
My dogs have exceeded their life expectancy and I believe that is because of Science Diet. We tried to save money by buying another brand, but noticed a difference in their coats immediately
by Mamat on 09/02/2015
We had milo from his mother & farther they all have been on science diet.
by molly678 on 08/19/2015
I only use Science Diet for my 5 small breed dogs. They all enjoy it and it feels good to feed them a brand I believe in.
by watschr on 08/18/2015
For as long as I have known about the quality of Hills pet nutrition I have only fed this product to my dogs and cats. Hills pet nutrition stands by their quality standards to provide quality nutrition to its four legged consumers! It is because of this quality that they can maintain healthy bodies and minds. Feeding anything less is not an option especially when our furry friends give so much to enrich our lives. It is only right that we enrich theirs. Thank you Hills from the bottom of our hearts !
by Lupitaggarza on 08/17/2015
My Trixie is up there in age and missing a few teeth. The small bites are great for her.
by debm269 on 07/19/2015
My dog has been eating science diet from her puppy years through all the stages they offer and now as a healthy 15 year old she still eats active longevity. Most large dogs don't last this long and I'm eternally grateful for all the years I've had with her and thanks to science diet food for helping keep her so healthy and energetic through all the years.
by Trindog on 07/11/2015
I have a 13 year old Papillon, since I started feeding her Science Diet her energy level has really increased. So happy with her diet now.

Science Diet, the only food I have EVER fed any of my dogs!
by Molly2012 on 12/04/2014
Product is good, but needs a better flavor. I have a lab that will eat almost anything and she does not like it.
by Sbusby on 11/16/2014
Have never fed my dogs anything else and do not plan to switch
by Jean62 on 11/14/2014
I have been buying this product for my dogs for over 2yrs now. I visit my local Petsmart every two weeks to buy this food. I trust this brand, I only want whats good for my dogs and I havent heard of any recalls on this brand, plus my dogs look great, there happy, active, and they love this food.
by ana1313 on 10/17/2014
My male dog lived to the age of 19 and with his heart problem he wasn't expected to live over 5 years old and it was a jaw infection that was the reason he passed , I believe the science diet was one of the reasons he lived so long. My female is now 19 she is slowing down but still enjoy's her walk's daily. Thank You for a good & healthy product. Cathy Lee
by afishellee on 10/11/2014
My dogs have been on Hills Brand Science Diet Small bites from the day I brought them home. They are now 7 and the only change ever made to their food is to a new stage in Science Diet for their age. They are healthy and my Vet is happy and he recomends as well. Two of the dogs were rescuses around 6 months old and the same age as my other dogs which worked out good with the food. I would recommend to all and would not use anything else. They are all toy dogs: male and female Yorkshire Terrier, male Maltese and female Chihuahua. I recommend to all our friends and others with Pets.
by rnrlesley on 10/04/2014
Both dogs I have ever owned have only been fed Science Diet Dry dog food. First Tommy, now Matey. Very healthy dogs.
by pred on 10/02/2014
I am feeding this to a Sheltie and a Chihuahua, both 11 years old. They are doing well on this formulation.
by sunnyblue on 09/30/2014
My dog enjoys this food. Good product. A little pricey but watch for it to go on sale as it often does, good value.
by Whit8911 on 09/28/2014
Having lost some of his teeth during dental procedures, and with a small elongated mouth, my fox terrier is about 10 years old and has a difficult time crunching some larger morsels. The crunch is good for his remaining teeth and the nutrition seems to keep him happy and healthy. He also likes it, which is a very positive thing.
by Crafter44 on 09/21/2014
Great for coat. good nutritional value. I can see the effect on him.
by kobe3237 on 09/17/2014
I have 3 dogs and it is hard to find a food that they will all eat with enthusiasm. My 13 year old lab that wouldnt play and hadnt in years has been jumping around when i get home and joins the other two dogs in romping around.
by IncreasedEnergy on 09/16/2014
My adult dachshund enjoys this dog food. I do not have to coax her to eat it with other additions.
by broomrider on 09/13/2014
My dog loves this food. She has been at friends homes and have eaten other food, but always gets sick. She had never gotten sick eating science diet. It is very gentle on her stomach. I recommend buying this food for your dog.
by LDashnaw on 09/08/2014
A benefit to my dogs health, energy level and lifespan
by KlonsMom on 09/05/2014
Every dog I have had has loved Science Diet. To be honest, I have never tried anything else or even checked prices for a bargain. Science Diet has always been my dog food.
by LynneAA28 on 08/27/2014
I use this product along with wet food. I mix them together so the dry is covered with wet. I cannot get this ready fast enough for her. She devours her food every time. My one problem is the cost. I know the food is worth the price if one can afford it. Please give more coupons.
by chica2 on 08/25/2014
My dog loves this food!! Gret coat and active lifestyle. USA made. Great!
by theFriscoKid on 08/22/2014
My 14 yr old dog loves the dog food. He can chew it without it hurting his mouth
by vrday68 on 08/22/2014
What a joyful sound when I hear my Tommydog munching on Hill's Science Diet dog food. I know he is enjoying it and is getting the vitamins, minerals and nutrition that his aging body needs. Tommy is a particular eater so I know he enjoys Hill's Science Diet dog food or else he wouldn't eat it!

Always seems to stay fresh till the end of the bag.

This food has kept our dogs healthy for years.They prefer it over any other.Dogs have very little waste to pick up from this food.Thanks Hills for such a wonderful product!!!!
by Ranzz on 06/18/2014
My sons' babies love your food. They are small and love the small bites. Never have a problem getting them to eat. The price is right especially with the good coupons you provide. Now if you would make an x-small bite size for my little pom we would be a real Hills family.
by mabgky on 06/11/2014
My dog is a very picky eater. I've tried more brands than I care to remember. I finally purchased Hill's Science Diet dry dog food and my dog loves it. It is easy on her stomach and the small bites are easy for her to crunch. Glad to find a dog food that she will eat!
by pgcraig57 on 06/07/2014
He's been on Science Diet from 2 years when I got him. He's 9 now his coat looks great and he maintains a healthy weight.
by nancy4250 on 05/27/2014
I always have felt best knowing we are giving our miniature poodle a high quality food. We also use the science diet canned beef in a small amount for dinner time as a treat each day.
by DebinIndiana on 05/18/2014
The dogs seem to like the flavor. I don't see any change in appearance or health so far but I will give it time.
by Deana on 05/17/2014
Switched to the senior version when they turned 8. No problem switching from original. They loved it! And they are so healthy.... I give Hills much credit as this is the only product they have eaten their entire life.
by Rags66 on 05/08/2014
The small breed wet can food my dogs go crazy over this dog food.
by Walker35 on 05/05/2014
Has minimal tummy upset. Size of food is better to "catch" in bowl.
by thomas on 05/04/2014
I have fed most of my dogs over the years Mature Adult Small Bites. They were healthy most of their lives until the end. Many of them lived to 16 and a half. I attribute this to good nutrition and preventive vet visits.
by Jnae66 on 04/19/2014
Greatly improved digestion issues and energy Levels for my 14 year old West Highland terrier. Generally happier and healthier. Thank you for providing the better alternative to grocery store offerings.
by kgh32 on 04/09/2014
We have been feeding Science Diet to our two dachshunds since they came into our family. We have never had any issues. Our dogs gobble up their food happily- even our old man who has had many many of his teeth removed. I do wish there were more opportunities for coupons for the food, though.
by rustedtaboo on 03/29/2014
My dog is 15 & going strong!! He loves the Prescription Diet Mature Small bites & the can food. He lets us know when its time to eat!! Prescription Diet has helped him stay healthy!!
by redstang08 on 03/14/2014
My dogs love it. They like small bite size of food.
by 1origin on 01/23/2014
We have utilized several top brands when attempting to heal badley abused rescue dogs in the last ten years but Science Diet as recommended by our Vet has never failed to return the puppy or adult dog to like recovered health. The Science diet prescription products helped significantly in healing all our dogs regardless of the severity of their pre-existing conditions. They maintain quality life styles nutritionally with your various products, better then any other brands we have tried to use in the previous years.
by muffinhead on 01/05/2014
I just want to comment on the velcro bag closure. It is so much better than the zip lock. Thank you so much for the improvement. I believe the product stays fresher too. My dogs have eaten Science Diet for 15+ years and will continue to do so. Thank you.
by Kaethe on 01/01/2014
I have been monitoring the issues with pet food quality for some time and decided to change over to Hill's Science Diet pet food for several reasons: 1. Guaranteed ingredients from the US & Canada 2. The recommendation of our veterinarian and 3. Our two 9 year old dogs love it. We are also buying all their treats from Hills. They go crazy for the Fruity Snacks. Thank you for caring about our pets.
by NYbabe on 12/19/2013
I have a 17 year old dog that that has been on Science diet since I got her at 8 weeks old. She ate nothing but the dry dog food for 15 3/4 years. I had to start her on Science diet can dog food after that as she had some medical problems and wouldn't eat dry food for a couple of weeks. After a couple of weeks she began eating a mix of dry and can. Last month my vet started her on a Kidney Diet due some elevated levels so now I've switched to prescription K/D. I selected the Dry Dog food for the review since she ate it for so many years. I've been very pleased with Science Diet and I attribute her remaining healthy for almost 16 years is partially attributed to quality dog food from Science Diet. My 5 year old dog also eats Science Diet. Would be great if you all could come out with K/D dog treats.
by Terri4dogs on 12/08/2013
My Yorkies love to see me get in to the bag. Knowing that they are going to have a product that is healthy and just the right size makes me keep on buying this food.
by danz360 on 11/16/2013
I bought the Mature adult small breed dry dog for a few years. I have a dachshund 9 years old who is allergic to wheat products. Your old formula was made with a corn base. Since you changed the formula, the new one has wheat. I have tried the New Balance Mature adult Grain Free. Its okay for my dog's digestion, but YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS PRODUCT FOR SMALL DOGS. THE KIBBLE IS THE STANDARD SIZE. PLEASE MAKE THE MATURE ADULT NEW BALANCE GRAIN FREE FOR SMALL BREEDS. Thank you
by Jemmer on 11/05/2013
He couldn't jump on my bed or couch anymore after eating the Mature dog food he was able to and he walks as fast as he did when he was a puppy
by Babs7177 on 11/03/2013
This product should be at a better selling price too high for dog food, overall I think this product is a good one because my dog seem to love it!
by rsuccar on 10/28/2013
I start with Science Diet for puppies, and go thru their life advancing with the proper age food. I have been fortunate that all my dogs (many throughout my life) have lived way over expected life span. I owe it all to TLC and Science Diet.
by Moesmom on 10/20/2013
I have always fed my dogs science diet. It is the only brand I trust. Plus I have never been to a vet's office which didn't offer Science Diet which to me means a lot about the quality of this brand. My dog has been eating this brand since the day I brought him home and now he is 9 years old and is very healthy which I credit to Science Diet. His favorite thing to do is to go on walks with me and he is very mobile and we get a good workout together. Only the best for my little buddy!!
by Lildeb on 09/26/2013
We have fed our 2 dogs Science Diet for most of their lives. Now at the ages of 13 and 11 1/2 they are still running and playing like puppies. They enjoy the small bites because they are easy to eat, and the taste agrees with them because they always eat all their food. If you want "puppy" attitude and energy, Science Diet small bites will energize your dogs.

My dog loves this food as well as your adult light small bites food. I will continue to buy it.

Having 4 dogs from small to large the only thing they have in common is age and a love of Science Diet Active Longevity. This is the only dog food they all like and I love it because it meets all their needs.

my dog likes the food and he is much healthier and playful since he has been eating it, my vet recommended it for him

My 13 year old dachshund loves the science diet mature adult small bites food. It is small kibbles which is easier for her to eat.
by tnsnoopyfan on 07/12/2013
My dog and I love this product. Out of many tried brands, this one is the only one he will eat readily. He is healthy for his long age and I am confidant it is due to the high quality of ingredients and catering of the needs of a dogs stages in his life. Brands may come and go but science diet is always there to give my little man a healthy meal and excellent value for the money.Science Diet got it right!

Steven, our Jack Russell Terrier has been on Hill's Science Diet food all of his life. After he turned 7, we switched him from regular Adult to Mature Adult small bites. The size is just perfect for him, he loves the taste, and he doesn't leave any food in his bowl--the cat will eat it if he leaves any behind! I am confident in the quality of the food plus my veterinarian recommended it. I feel good about feeding my dog such a high-quality food because he is part of the family!

Dogs love it! Their coats have never looked so great.
by Katseyes on 07/01/2013
This food is all my dog will eat. If she eats anything else, she gets sick. I've never had any issues with my dogs health while eating science diet food. Very reasonably priced. The only issue I have is the seal on the bag is not good. I usually have to rebag it.

Our 13 + year old westie named Jake just got his annual vet check and we were told that all his vital organ fuctions were very good. We have been feeding him science diet since we got him at 1 1/2 years old.We believe that his health has a lot to do with what he is fed. We are looking to many more years of enjoyment from him,, thank you science diet... annie , paul and Jake

Stubby is a little rat terrier and almost 15 years old. He seems to like this food a lot. We have fed him Science Diet since he was a puppy and like to think the quality and nutrition is why he is still a healthy dog. Thanks! Crystal

I have an older dog with kidney issues so I monitor certain values in her food.The new packaging is disappointing in that it does not give detailed values like the old packaging.I had to call for these and found they had changed slightly in a way that wasn't positive for my dog. When I compared new toy and small breed values to those in the small bites I decided that I could switch her to that food which is more economical and now has comparable values that are important for her kidney function.I wish the nutritional values information on the old packaging had been maintained.

I've been feeding Hill's products to Brandy since she was 3 years old, she's now 10 yrs. young. Started giving her Science Diet mature/adult small bites last year. She loves them all, I just have to watch how much I give her though because she'll keep eating no matter how much I put in her bowl.
by BobbyM on 01/29/2013
I have a 9 year old pug that has been transformed by Hill Mature Adult small breed formula. He was scratching and had constant ear infections on his previous diet. After eating Hills for 3 months his coat is smooth and soft and his scratching and ear infections are gone! He also eats the canned mature adult beef formula and loves it. Thank you for making such a healthy quality product my pug enjoys. Julie M. and Bacio the pug

Bingo is a 15# Pom/spitz mix. We adopted him & he is 13 now. He loves his Science Diet, eats a whole bowl one piece at a time.. He follows me around & many times when I'm watching tv, he will get a mouth full of dog food bring it by me,drop it on the floor& eat 1 at a time. He is very healthy & people all the time ask, did you just get your puppy?

My older dog has been on SO canned food for years !!!

SO canned food has been a help for my older Yorkie
by Teeny on 08/21/2012
I have been using Science Diet for over 10 years for my Daschund. He has been picky about food since the day I got him and Science Diet is the only thing he will eat, and I have tried many different dog foods. He is picky to the point that he will only eat the small bites. It doesn't matter much to me, because Science Diet has a great line of products for my dog and as long as he likes them, I am happy! Thanks Science Diet!

Older pets without medicial conditions need a balanced diet. SD Mature Small Bites provides the nutrition they need in an easy chew formula
by Leah1979 on 08/21/2012
I have a 14-year old Cocker Spaniel and she has been eating Science Diet dry food her entire life. Many people think she is still a young pup because of the energy she still has at her age. I know that because of Science Diet that she has been eating her entire life is why she is so vibrant and active at her age. I will forever use Science Diet for my animals.
by Dayzed on 08/14/2012
My Girls love their science diet food. We haven't had the skin & digestion problems that we have had on other foods. They get so excited when they hear the dog food box being opened & do the happy Scottie dance of joy for their supper.
by ImStillThymeX on 07/10/2012
My Girls Love their science diet dog food, keeps them healthy & happy inside & out. Their skin is healthy their fur is shiny & their digestion is great. They do they happy Scottie dance of joy for breakfast & supper every day.
by ImStillThymeX on 07/10/2012
The Science Diet may cost more but I feel it is worth it. It is a good quality food that my dog enjoys. The small bites are just the right size.
by Louise1 on 05/22/2012
I have an 11 year old German Shephard that has only eaten Science Diet. Through the years she started with large breed puppy bites, then adult dog food, and now the Longevity formula. When people see her, no one believes she is 11! She looks about 3 years old. I tell them that Science Diet keeps her in lean, good shape and that I am sure it is what is contributing to her long life and good health. I highly recommend this food for your older pet!
by Jazziesmom on 05/21/2012
My dachaund, Kosher, is picky about dry dog food, but loves Science Diet.
by KosherPup on 05/20/2012
This is the only dog food that I will buy. I will not allow anyone to give my dog any other dog food or treats, Science Diet helped to clear up alot of digestive problems my dog had. I would not change his food to any other brand. He loves the Science Diet Mature Adult Small Bites.
by Sparks on 05/20/2012
I have two Yorkies a boy 12 years old and a girl who will be 13 years old in August. The boy had been loosing his hair with dry skin and both were having trouble jumping up on different things. Since feeding them Science Diet Mature Adult Small and Toy Breed they are moving around better and the boy's hair has stopped coming out.
by Happy1Camper2 on 05/19/2012
I started my dog out on Science Diet when I first got him nine years ago. He loves it and has always been playful and full of energy. I am well satisfied and would'nt even think of feeding him anything else. I trust Hills Science Diet completely.
by Rusty1 on 05/19/2012
Our dog just devoured his foot every time we filled his bowl up. He has maintained an excellent body weighed and is showing signs of being active again! Thanks!
by Danielle on 05/19/2012
Until starting our 10 year old Boxer on Science diet, she regularly threw up her food. Our vet recommended Science, and although it was an investment for us we love our dog and want her to be healthy. After her first bowl, which she ate enthusiastically, we knew that Science diet would be our choice for the rest of our dog's life. She is healthy beyond her years, full of energy and life and has had no further GI related problems. Thank you, Science!
by Sandy on 05/18/2012
Our chihuahua is a little picky when it comes to dry food. He knows what he likes and if the pieces are too big or too "hard", he won't eat it, no matter what you do to it. This product is one of his favorites! The pieces are the right size and regardless if we leave it dry or add other food or liquid to it, he loves it! I recommend it for both the average and picky eater!
by Giareese on 05/18/2012
Great for my 10yo sheltie's sensitive stomach. Science Diet seems to be the only food she can tolerate. However, with the small bites dry food she takes a mouthful out of her bowl and drops it on the kitchen floor, then eats most of the food, but always leaves a few on the floor. Its almost like she picks out the "bad ones". Very strange behavior, but we still love the food!
by Shannon on 05/18/2012
I have been "Saving" dogs for 22 years and have used nothing else, All my rescues have lived very LONG lives with your food, true believer and have had alot of people switch under my bliefs. Saved one dog at 14, lived to 17 1/2 and this was a large dog. None every get sick!!!!! wouldn't buy anything else for my friends! Constant quality is always there! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
by AbbeyRoad05 on 05/18/2012
Our Yorkshire Terrior has been eating Hills Science Diet dry food since she was 8 weeks old since our vetinarian recommended it. She just recently changed to the 7+ mature dry food for small toy dogs. She likes it and at times has enjoyed it as a snack out of our hands. Her name is Sofie and her registered name is Mathis's Princess Sofie. She weighs 5 lbs. I have included a photo of her.
by Joweshpa on 05/17/2012
IT IS NICE TO HAVE A PET FOOD THAT OFFERS VARIETY. EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A BIG DOG(ALASKAN MALUMUTE) SHE LIKES SMALL CHUNK FOOD. IT IS GOOD TO HAVE A VARIETY OF FORMULAS AVAILABLE ALSO. I HAVE 2 CATS ALSO, ALL ARE 7YRS AND ABOVE. THEY ALL LOVE THE HILLS FAMILY OF FOOD. THANK YOU FOR MAKING A GOOD PET FOOD.
by DEBANN on 05/17/2012
My chihuahua loves this food! She actually begs for it when her bowl is empty. It is high quality and the perfect size for her.
by Minniesmom on 05/17/2012
My Dogs eat nothing but SCIENCE DIET which my vet reccommended since 1982. All 3 dogs love it. GAGI (schnauzer) lived 16 1/2 years, SAM (cocker spaniel) lived 14years and MOLLY (cocker spaniel) is 11 years old and has the vitality of a puppy. I know SCIENCE DIET is a big reason they've lived long healthy lives. They all had/have beautiful coats. Even though SCIENCE DIET cost more it's worth every penny when I see my healthy lovable dogs. I plan to get a new puppy (to replace SAM) who will be raised on SCIENCE DIET.
by CoolIzzynDeeeetroit on 05/17/2012
Our 8 yr. old wolf husky/lab mix has been eating this product for one year now. The nutrition is excellent, and helps him maintain great health as he has entered his senior years. His coat is beautiful, and the vet often comments on how she can tell that he is eating a quality dog food from the condition of his coat. This product also helps him maintain a healthy weight. Science Diet makes many excellent foods, and this is one that we will keep on using.
by Joseph1966 on 05/17/2012
Our Lil Mag really enjoys the fine quality of your lite small kibbles. When she is begging for a treat we will give her about five or six kibbles to satisfy her until it is time for her meal. The overall quality is great and you can't beat the price for what you are getting. We have recommended your product to our friends. Keep the coupons coming.
by magpie on 05/17/2012
My 12 year old Jack Russell Terrier was suffering from diaherra and weight loss. Tests showed his B-12 was very low and he was also refusing to eat his dry food. I put him on B-12 medication, but he was still not eating his normal food as he had before. After trying several brands of food, which he refused and his weight loss continuing I bought a bag of Science Diet small bites for a senior small dog. He immediately started eating all his food and has continued to do so. His weight is almost back to normal and he looks terrific. He has returned to his former championship form. Thank you Science Diet!! P.S. I've switched my other two Jack Russells over to Science Diet.
by Vinnie on 05/17/2012
We have three rescue dogs, ages 9-12. They have been fed Science Diet since they became members of our family. While all are now in their "retirement years," they don't seem to know how old they are supposed to be. I believe the good nutrition they've received through Science Diet has helped them maintain their youthful outlook and appearance. Good news for me, good news for them. Bad news for the neighborhood squirrels.
by Foust on 05/17/2012
This SCIENCE DIET is a great food for our rescue mixed breed, Tiffy!! She would eat ANYTHING, I'm sure, as she was found as a stray....but I know by giving her this, she is getting a balanced & healthy diet. Also, the fact that is it specifically made for small breeds (she weighs under 20 lbs), that all the research & development has gone into its creation. We only buy SCIENCE DIET for both dogs...our Choc Lab, Mindy, is on prescription KD from the vet. Thanks for great products!!! And I also appreciate the coupons offered....as feeding a quality product IS a tad more expensive that the "cheapie" brands.
by ronikala on 05/17/2012
I have used Science diet dry dog foods for close to forty years with numerous breeds and sizes. When I got my first puppy the vet explained that a quality food would minimize many health issues that arrise over the years. It was great advice- all the dogs I have cared for have seen their 16th birthdays with very few health issues along the way. That is why I feel so comfortable recommending the Science Diet products when ever someone asks.
by JD100 on 05/17/2012
Dante is a survivor. He's required two known shelter adoptions (near death experiences# and another unofficial adoption to wind up sleeping at the bottom of our bed. Dante is at least 12 years old and probably older, with whatever is the current dog year factor to consider today. Dante has four favorite words which require almost immediate reaction from his companions #my Wife and myself#. They are: 1) eat, 2) walk, 3) ride, and 4) treat. Dante is adorable but he's a bit of beggar. He has many skills including the ability to beat me on numerous occasions, playing "Let's Stare and the first one to get distracted or Blink loses". Well, he totally enjoys his Science Diet Dry Dog Food for mature dogs in small bites. If any of the above words come up in conversation prior to the scheduled times, be prepare for a stare down, spin move, or bark #saying well let's go#. We are attempting to help him recover from a pulled legiment in his right rear thigh and to get him healthier as a result of his recover. The only treats he will consider, have medication that help. And to boot, he is more stubborn than an old mule in the Summer heat. Dante is a connoisseur with refined taste buds and we are happy to serve him only the Best - Science Diet Products; he would not settle for less...
by Jerry on 05/16/2012
I have been feeding my dogs Science diet all their lives (8 and 16). They have always loved their food,but recently became sensitive to the ingredients in regular small bites. I switched to Lamb and Meal, which they seem to like, but I don't know how long I will be able to afford it. It is a more expensive product. Overall, we trust your product and would like to continue using it.
by Nanna on 05/16/2012
is Science Diet dry. Started them off with the puppy food and they are now eating the Mature Adult (they at 9+). They both seem to eat it well and have always been very healthy. We're happy with the Science Diet dog food line.
by TubaManZ on 05/16/2012
My Boston Terrier named Dutch is a finicky eater. He even is selective about the treats we give him but he never turns down a bowl of his Science Diet small bits. They are just the right size and he enjoys the flavor.
by Lee85 on 05/16/2012
My American Eskimo is about 12 years old and he is very picky. I have tried different dry dog foods and Science Diet Mature Adult is the only one he actually eats and seems to enjoy. He has bad teeth and 4 of them have been pulled, so I like the small kibble size since he has trouble chewing and I don't have to mix water into his dry food (he hates that). He also has bad joints, but I noticed that after eating Science Diet Mature Adult, he seems to walk better and be more active. I will keep feeding him this food for these reasons.
by Sara on 05/16/2012
My toy chihuahua (Pricilla) was having trouble breathing & tired all the time was not a playful dog. I thought something serious was wrong. My veterinarian told me she was way over weight and reccommended "Hill's Science Diet" for her weight loss program. I purchased it in the Vet's office and have been using it since. She lost the weight she needed and has more energy now than she has ever had. She is a happy playful 9 yr old dog. She even seems to enjoy the taste way better than the dog food she use to eat.
by VHale on 05/16/2012
It's the only food I feel comfortable feeding my 13 yr. old dog. She loves the taste and small bites. She is healthy and active partly due to Science Diet dry and wet food.
by Parisbound on 05/16/2012
I feed Mature Adult Small Bites to my 12 year old Australian Shepherd. She is a very picky eater, so I supplement her kibble with Mature Adult canned food, also by Science Diet. Even though she is a 50 pound dog, she prefers the Small Bites over the larger size kibble. She is doing great on this product. Her coat is soft and very shiny, her eyes sparkle, she bounces when she walks, and she always wants to play. Our vet said she is doing great, and no one can believe she is 12. I will keep her on this brand of food for the rest of her life, as I am so happy with how great she is doing, plus I feel safe feeding her such a carefully researched and tested food.
by Ranchmom on 05/16/2012
This is a great dog food and I highly recommend for your pet. My dog really loves this line of pet food and especially this dog food. She is very picky about her food and I have no problem getting her to eat.
by Kimmie22 on 05/16/2012
My small dog loves this product. I highly recommended it for all small dogs who have trouble eating big bites.
by Jackson on 05/16/2012
We are extremely happy with quality and packaging-At times we were shopping price but,after trying the others we settled on science Diet and have been using for the last 6-7 years-!Our dogs are healthy and our vet bills are low-I do not think we would ever use or consider using any other food! The assortment and needs are greatly appreciated as we able to be specific on exactly what our dogs need for their health! You folks have it together-We are extremely proud to recommend your product to our friends and neighbors!
by earthquake1 on 05/16/2012
My dogs love to eat this food. They have a shiny fluffy coat from it. They like it being small pieces the best.
by Daisey042 on 05/16/2012
My dog and I love science diet! She was put on a specific type of science diet due to a medical issue. It has worked for my dog wonderfully! My dog loves her food! The dog food also provides certain things specific for age and other things for the dogs. I would recommend this product as I think is a great dog food to feed your dog!
by njn515 on 05/16/2012
Science Diet is the only pet food that our dog has ever been able to tolerate - but beyond that, she thrives on it. At 11 years old - this food still helps keep her healthy and well nourished and we have never needed to supplement her with any other food. The small kibble is perfect for smaller dogs and older ones as well.
by BeagleMom on 05/16/2012
The small size of the pieces suit my mini-Doxie just fine...she munches and crunches happily. She loves them. I am just wondering if a bit more of a meat coating will entice her.
by Sophie on 05/16/2012
I recently noticed that my dog (9 years old) seemed a lot more active. He was jumping on the couch and frequently playing with my younger dog. I could not figure the sudden change, until it finally hit me - I had been feeding him Science Diet for the first time in his life (I had won a gift certificate to a local pet store, so I was not concerned with price). I now feed it to him exclusively; the money is well spent.
by Kevin on 05/16/2012
I have a very finiky setter, so I have tried multiple dry food products. She really liked the flavor of the dry small kibble. I now make sure this is the brand I buy for her. And now that she has had a litter of pups, this is what they will be getting as well.
by 3HuntingDogs on 05/16/2012
We have been feeding Pepper, our Jak Russel, Science Diet Dry food since we first brought her home. She turns 10 this December and is in the best of health, both inside and outside. I would feed my Pepper nothing but Science Diet!
by faithc on 05/16/2012
This product is perfect for my Boston Terrier named Baxter. I have been feeding him this dry dog food since I adopted him almost 9 years ago. He is very healthy for being almost 12 years old. No one thinks he is that old since he has such a nice coat, his weight is just right and he loves walking and playing with other dogs. I would recommend this dry food for all small mature dogs as it is just the right formula for keeping your mature dog healthy.
by bogo on 05/16/2012
I have a pom named Weezer and she has been on this food since I rescued her two years ago. He coat and skin have both improved greatly and I believe it is thanks to Science Diet! Yes, it is a bit expensive but coupons are available! Highly recommended!
by jasmijn on 05/16/2012
I have 2 small dogs - one is a picky eater, and the other will eat anything remotely food-like - and this product works for both so I don't have to buy 2 different kinds of food. Just the right kibble size, nutritionally sound, and both dogs enjoy it!
by SweetHeat on 05/16/2012
I have three golden retrievers that ONLY eat Hill's Science dry and canned food. I have fed all my dogs over the past 35 years nothing but Hills Science food. My oldest is a Golden/Collie mix, who will be 17 (!!) years old on May 20th, and is still very healthy! My other two are 6 years old and are very healthy as well. I totally attribute this to the fact that the only food they have eaten since the day we got them is Hill's Science dry and canned twice each day. I would not feed them anything else! Thank you Hill's Science for giving me peace of mind and three healthy dogs!!
by Bonnaroo on 05/16/2012
Our Mitzi ( yorkie mix ) has been eating science diet food her whole life. Once in awhile for a treat we give her a small helping of the science diet can food. she has been very healthy and no one believes how old she is at 12 years old now. I take her to the vet regularly and the vet says she is doing great. Debbie
by Debbie57 on 05/16/2012
Our boy loves the Science Diet Mature Adult Small Bites. He has been eating various Science Diet dry foods since he was just a pup. He is a cocker spaniel and the small bite work best for him. He also enjoys the regular size bites when the store is out of the small bites. He is thirteen and going strong. We believe it is due to always feeding him Science Diet instead of the cheaper brands you can pick up at the grocery stores. Thank you Science Diet.
by Jerrie on 05/16/2012
Jessie, my little poodle mix just turned 14 and I attribute her being in the great shape that she is in to the food she eats. She runs and plays just like my younger dog. Thank you!
by JessiesMom on 05/16/2012
Hello My dog loves this food she usually cleans her bowl to nothing left when she is finished. She cant wait for dinner she is right by the closet waiting for it. I highly recommend this product to everyone not only is it healthy but good for you pet as well. Thank you Science Diet Todd
by emt1708 on 05/16/2012
My little Min Pin is sometimes prone to digestive issues. Since switching her to Science Diet, there has been a definite improvement in such a short time. And she LOVES this stuff. She is always waiting by her bowl when it's time to eat. The kibble is just the right size for her and even works well to take on walks as a treat.
by Shelly98 on 05/16/2012
My dog Abby, a wire haired fox terrier has been eating Science Diet small bites all her life. She is a self feeder and so is able to regulate how much she eats by herself. She seems to keep that perfect weight and definately has more energy than I do! I definately recommend Science Diet dog foods to anyone who wants the best nutrition for their dog.
by Viking on 05/16/2012
Consistency is the key to any product, Scien diet food has been my dog's choice for over eleven years. The quality has always been good on a consistent basis and good and that is what counts when it comes to my pet. The price is always reasonable and the product is a great value to my household.
by Buster20 on 05/16/2012
This product was originally recommended by my vet and I have been very happy with it ever sense. My dog is very active, she gets a couple dailey walks, and her energy level is always very good and I credit that to her food. Her waste is also very consistent and she doesn't have accidents. I think based on the benefits to my dog and the price of the product, it is the best product on the market for a senior dog.
by liberty on 05/16/2012
My dog is 12 this year and has been eating the Science Diet Mature for the last five years. I firmly believe that it is helping with her longevity, and she loves the taste, too.
by Rissa333 on 05/16/2012
My dog absolutely loves your product. Its all she has eaten ever since she was a baby. We also tried other types of science diet products and was also happy to find a sensitive stomach formula which helped her dearly. My only wish would be is for you to have sample packs for cats so I can switch her to your brand. She has stomach issues and I'm sure your product would help. But to have sample packs would help me better because I can't afford to buy the big bags in different types and she doesn't take to it very well. Otherwise my pets will be eating your brand until they are long gone which will be a very long time away.
by bubba56 on 05/16/2012
My dog is very actve and happy eating this product. She loves the size and taste and is extremely active. This is the only product we buy for her and will continue to do so.
by Daisey on 05/16/2012
We have a Baseji and a Rat Terrior that have been helped tremendously from this product. Our Basenji has a sensitive stomach and various joint issues. After two years on the Mature dry she is running up the stairs and has a wonderful gleam to her coat. Our Rat Terrior has hip problems and we believe the mature dry has significantly helped his joint pain.
by Skeeter on 05/16/2012
My dog is a 14-year old Cocker Spaniel and she has been eating Science Diet dry food her entire life. Many people think she is still a puppy because of the energy she still has at her age. Even though I had to supplement her dry food with the canned Science Diet food recently due to an illness she had, she is slowly starting to eat her dry food again and I know that because of Science Diet food I'll have her for a few more years to enjoy her love and company.
by Dayzed on 05/16/2012
My little Pomeranian is 13yrs old, and has teeth and esophagus problems like Pomeranians usually do ,the small bites i trust ! she hasn't got chocked on it and she loves the taste
by james57 on 05/16/2012
i have six yorkies who love this food !!! i always buy because we have never had any skin or health issues!! i would highly recommend this food to anyone.
by lisa23 on 05/16/2012
My 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier has always had a bit of a finicky tummy and she's a picky eater. We have gone through a lot of dog foods that just don't agree with her and more that she just didn't care for and wouldn't eat. If she won't eat and her stomach is too empty that makes her sick too! Earlier this year I received some coupons from you and tried your Mature Adult dry food. We have both been very happy ever since. She loves it and so does her tummy. When she's happy and healthy I am happy to give Science Diet dog food a big thumbs up!
by Gobart on 05/16/2012
Bottom line, this product is a win/win. My two Maltese love the taste and size, which means nothing gets wasted. i love it because they do and because i can see the positive difference in their interaction with each other and with others since we switched to this product.
by dubo on 05/16/2012
I have tried other Science Diet"s dry food for mature adult and my dog loves the small bite the best even though she is a large dog.
