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.

We adopted a puppy at SPCA and the veterinarian there recommended this food so we bought a bag there. A few days later we went to a different veterinarian and he also recommended this food, according to him, it is one of the best products.
We are very satisfied with the food, our dog likes it and it seems to be developing with no problems.
Each bag has a chart that tells you how much food you should give your dog and how often depending on the dog's weight. So you have to be weighing your dog every week (at least we do) to make sure the quantity of food is correct.
When your doggie goes to "do his business" the "waste" comes out in a defined shape so it is not messy or liquid and the amount is not much, and not very smelly, easy to pick up. This is due to the all natural products, no dye, no preservatives in the food. Dogs are better able to digest and really benefit from the food.
Sorry to gross you out but as a pet owner you do want to know this facts.After all, you will be the one cleaning up afterter the pup.

Style Name: Small BitesSize: 4.5 lb bag
My puppy has had much better success tolerating and thriving on Science Diet compared with pricier "all natural" brands...you know...ingredients that people would also be happy to eat. But she is a dog, not a human and so if ground up chicken beaks are one of the fillers, but she is healthy and happy, I don't worry about it period. At the shelter where I got her they sell Science diet for half the price of what it is available elsewhere...gotta go get some more. Why, because my dog loves it and is healthy and happy and seeing is believing. Cheers!

I got Zoe from what I believed was a reputable breeder. After I saw the conditions i had doubts. I brought her home and soon after -- i woke up one morning and she was covered in poop and vomit. She only weighed 1.9 lbs in the first place. There wasn't much to loose. I took her to my vet, Dr. Gosney, the best vet in Temple, TX. She had coccidiosis. We got meds and he asked me what I was feeding her. I told him chicken and some other food. I don't remember the name but it had a very good rating. He told me that dogs can get pancreatitis from too much protein. I am a nurse and this made sense to me but I hadn't thought of it. He said that she needs a balanced diet and prescribed Science Diet. I love Dr. Gosney but I wondered if he was just selling the product for them. Alas, I was desperate and worried, so I took the cans home and with the meds and the food, her appetite very quickly returned. Soon, I got her on the dry too, which she loves. Her coat now is super shiny and she has changed tremendously from the little puppy in the picture. Lots of energy and wellness. Poops look very healthy and Zoe is energetic and in 5 seconds of my back being turned was able to chew up my expensive new towel in the bathroom on my shelf. TOWELS I CAN REPLACE. Zoe, I can't. Thank you Science Diet. I know this sounds like a commercial. I am a real person in Temple TX. p.s. i would take a fresh pic but she is napping.

I originally started my puppy on Castor and Pollux which I love the ingredients but my Boston terrier had loose stills no matter what I tried. Once I switched to science diet he got a lot better. I do not like the ingredients at all and do eventually plan on mixing it with castor and Pollux and Swithing 100% and hopefully everything goes well.
My boston does not get excited about this food at all, he eats it because he's hungry, but he actually loved Castor and Pollux.

Thank you for your comments. We recently gained access to respond to customer's post. We have recently reformulated our products to contain a quality protein as the first ingredient, no by-products, artificial colors or flavors.

You can't assume a food is right for your pet simply by reading the ingredient list, because nutrients are just as important as ingredients. Making a high quality pet food requires a precise blend of ingredients to meet a specific nutrient profile based on a pet's lifestage, lifestyle or disease condition. Hill's combines nutrient-rich, high quality ingredients to create balanced foods that have been trusted and recommended by veterinarians for more than 50 years.

If you would like a product with no corn, wheat or soy, please try our Ideal Balance Puppy Food.

Thanks again!
