We develop products with the precise balance of 50 nutrients based on life stage, lifestyle, size or special care needs. We carefully avoid too little or too much of certain nutrients.

America’s Pet Nutrition Experts Since 1939

Balanced pet nutrition has been our passion for more than 70 years. Over 150 veterinarians and pet nutritionists are involved in the development of our products. We make every bag of our dry pet food with the highest quality natural ingredients.

Your Breed's Special Needs

Most dog breeds are considered mature by the time they are 7 years old. If you have a larger breed, you may need to change the way you care for him by the time he's age 5. Giant breeds reach the mature adult stage at age 4. Hill’s Ideal Balance Large Breed dog food is perfectly balanced for large breed dogs. For medium sized dogs, consider Hill’s Ideal Balance Adult dog food that is available in a variety of flavors; for small or toy sized dogs, consider Hill’s Ideal Balance Small & Toy Breed dog food that comes in a variety of flavors, both dry and canned.

Transition Tips

Begin the transition by mixing the current food with the new pet food. Gradually decrease the amount of the current pet food while increasing the amount of new pet food. Continue to do this over a 7-day period. Transitioning slowly can result in fewer digestive issues and better acceptance of the new pet food. For finicky, older, or pets with health conditions, the transition time could take 10 days or slightly longer.

It is nice to have an alternative good quality food I know my dog likes if I can't get the BB for some reason.

This food is kind of pricey but worth the money for our allergy filled dog!

Flavor Name: chickenSize Name: 3.5-Pound Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have gotten a bit obsessed with dog food nutrition in the past year, and in doing so have switched to grain-free food. I feel a bit guilty giving kibble at all, it is so processed, but with 3 big dogs I just can't afford all canned, so I mixed grain-free canned with grain-free kibble. I was happy to pick up this bag of grain-free dog food and give it a try. My dogs will eat anything so I base my judgement of a dog food on it's nutritional value, not on it's taste.

NUTRITION:
It's not bad. It's grain-free, obviously, so that's a plus. Chicken is the first ingredient, which is pretty good. And there are no by-products in it ("meat by-products" can be stuff from the slaughterhouse floor), which is also good. And it contains chicken fat which is a good source of nutrients.

BUT chicken contains about 80% water, which is lost after cooking so the end meat product included is a fraction of the weight it was when it was called the "first" ingredient.
BUT it includes peas and pea protein which are cheap sources of protein. And a dog food that gets so much protein from plants is not getting a lot of protein from the meat.
BUT potatoes are the 2nd ingredient - more cheap filler and dogs don't need potatoes.

BOTTOM LINE:
Grain-free is always better than not (ALL grains are irritants to dogs - they cannot digest them), but in the grain-free kibble arena, I'd call this product only average.

Thanks for your comments! We recently gained access to respond to posts! You may want to speak to your veterinarian for information about ingredients and nutrition's. Peas and pea protein are excellent sources of protein. We would not add ingredients to our food that would not provide a nutritional benefit.

Potatoes are an excellent source of carbohydrates. Dogs need carbohydrates for a balance diet.

Actually grains are not irritants to dogs. In fact corn, if ground, is the most digestible grain.

Thanks for your comments!

Flavor Name: chickenSize Name: 3.5-Pound Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have had my two dogs on grain-free dry dog food for some time now after it was recommended by a trainer who suggested it would help with a multitude of issues including semi-frequent vomiting by the Shih Tzu. She was right. We've been giving the boys the grain-free, and everyone is happy and healthy.

We normally give them salmon flavored dog food because both dogs appear to love fish. When this chicken and potato flavor became available on Vine I decided to give it a try. I was shocked when I received the bag, and both dogs accepted the kibble as they would a treat. Not too surprising for the Jack Russell mix, but the Shih Tzu is picky, picky, picky. I figured it was mighty tasty if they thought it was a dog cookie.

Then I mixed it in with their other dog food, steamed it, and presented it to them as a meal. Once again, they both loved it.

I will seriously consider this dog food when I buy the next bag because I will now only buy grain-free dry food, and though this is expensive, it does my heart good to see the boys enjoy food this much.

I really wanted to try Hill's Grain free Chicken and Potato dog food. I have 4 chihuahuas. They can be very picky.
They really liked this food. I feel better knowing that it is grain free. One of my dogs has a skin condition.
My Vet mentioned that it could be diet related. Hopefully a simpler diet will help.
This food seems to be priced on the high side at over $5 a pound. So far though the dogs seem happy with it.

Our dog is a large Goldie-Doodle with allergies. She is a paw licker and is prone to periodic ear infections. Food, and specifically grain, is a main sorce of allergies according to our vet. We have tried different brands but Hill's Ideal Balance Grain Free seems to lessen her symptoms not eliminate them.

Would not feed my dogs any other dog food. No grain! Big deal price wise, I save ten dollars per bag when I buy it at the local pet store in town, and I love the fact that it comes to my house in less then 48hours from time of order till arrival.

Flavor Name: chickenSize Name: 3.5-Pound Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
What we like about this dog food is that it has decent ingredients and isn't just a lot of filler. Our daughter expressed it well: it's kind of like feeding the dog "whole" food instead of "processed" food. The food has adequate meat content (chicken in this case). We're not so sure what the potato content does, but at least it's real food and not processed filler.

No surprise that the dog (a medium-large mixed breed) likes it; there's plenty of meat to make it attractive. The only issue here is that a 3.5 pound bag doesn't go far at all with larger dogs and so a steady diet of this product is going to be a lot more expensive than "regular" dog food (and one star off for that reason). Mixing it with regular food seems to defeat the point of a nice "natural" feed.

We'll probably offer this, as we do with other "step-up" premium dog foods, as a treat once a week or so. A shame we can't really shell out for this as a regular twice a day meal.
