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.

I really like the Hills dog foods, they're better for Prince and he likes them.

Overall I am giving this a 4-star rating because it is a decent food, has quality ingredients and the dogs liked it just fine.

She did warm to it within a day, and now eats it with just as much eagerness as her previous food.

Size Name: 3.5-Pound Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The only variable that really matters in this pack is whether my picky-eater will eat a particular brand of dogfood, and this she loves. (The boys will eat anything; they don't get a vote.) She'll eat other foods with a handful of Hill's mixed in; she'll look at the counter and remind me where this dogfood is stored.

This, from a skinny dog who will go hungry and walk away from dinner (we feed once a day here) if she doesn't like it (or, heaven forbid, I mixed in some people food thinking she might like it. Spaghetti is SCARY!!)

Size Name: 3.5-Pound Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Prince is a fussy eater when it comes to dry dog food. I am very glad he likes this food as it's lower calorie and he needs to take some weight off. He eats his entire bowl right away, with other types of dry food he'd try to pick the wet food out and leave the dry until much later, but he gobbles all this up. I really like the Hills dog foods, they're better for Prince and he likes them.

When you choose this dog food, you can be assured that it is good for your dog. Both our dogs like this and ate it quickly. The pushy Beagle likes it so much she tried to get the food from the Chocolate Lab's dish.

We'd been using Natural Balance for a rescue dog that joined our family a few months ago. We needed a formula that would not make her sick. this one works very well as a substitute for the brand recommended by the rescue center and dog shelter. Nicely done.

Size Name: 3.5-Pound Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It's interesting to see what ingredients are in dog food these days. Chicken is #1 here, so that's good. There are some items I doubt dogs eat in the wild (beets, peas, apples, cranberries, broccoli + a lot of vitamins), but my pup loved this dog food, so if it's healthy, that's ok.

With a larger breed of dog, this may not be the most affordable option, but there is no doubt this is a higher quality than the more commercial products – and this is made in the USA. It's another example of how true the old saying is – you get what you pay for. This is premium dry dog food.

This is one of the upper end over the counter Hills products. We don't carry it in our Vet clinic, instead carrying only their prescription diets. However you can find this food in several of the upper end pet stores around town and the price seems to vary wildly.

If your dog has a corn allergy - then this is an excellent selection
If your dog has a protein allergy, then I would be careful as the main protein in this is from chicken, which may dogs are allergic to.
This food was combined in the USA, though not all of the ingredients are from the US... I would keep an eye on where the ingredients come from as this is obviously something that they can change without warning.

I would make sure to transition your dogs to this slowly, especially if you are changing protein sources.

My dogs both found this to be quite tasty - however we quickly ended up with tummy problems. After trying several different types of food I have decided that one of my two seems to have a chicken issue that leads to massive hind end blowouts. The other seems capable of eating concrete with no stomach issues at all. In the end I will go back to their normal food (a high quality fish based food) just to keep them on the same diet.
