Size: 17.5-PoundVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Hill's Science Diet for Adults is a great dog food brand. Its a balanced nutrition and you really do see a visible difference in your dog. Our dogs have tried everything from cheaper food to more expensive food. Your dogs will poop more on cheaper brands and fillers then they do on "real" dog food. You are what you eat as they say.

Science Diet provides nutrition to restore youthful energy in 30 days as they say. It won't happen overnight. Just like people it takes a few weeks or more to see and feel a difference. It has antioxidants to maintain overall health and a strong immune system. It is made with high quality ingredients which are easy to digest and contains Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate for healthy joints and improved mobility. There is only natural ingredients and NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

As far as tastes? We have 5 dogs. All adults and some older adults- and every one of them large and small gobbled the food up- So I would say the taste is great! No upset tummy's or diarrhea as some "cheaper" foods can cause. This is a good brand so I did not expect any issues.

Size: 17.5-PoundVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This is a little difficult to review b/c objectively, it's hard to determine how much a difference a new brand makes with any degree of accuracy. Here's what I can say for sure:

The packaging was very convenient and it arrived quickly. It's nice to have dog food delivered especially slightly mid-heavy bags. Hill's Science Diet came recommended from a friend that's a vet but we were honestly a little worried that the dogs wouldn't like the taste. That was a total waste of a worry. From day one, our dogs loved it. So after two weeks of use, they still love the taste and quickly eat everything we give them. I wouldn't have expected to see anything dramatic one way or the other, but two things seem pretty clear - they do seem to be a little more energetic which is nice. But they've both lost a decent amount of weight (a little over 10% for both of them). They were both getting a little chubby in their old age and the vet has really been pushing us to get them to lose weight. Well, that happened and it was great b/c we didn't cut down the amount of food, they didn't end up hungry and it took no real effort. Since our activity level is very consistent (we go on three walks a day - the same routes day to day) it'd be hard to attribute the weight loss to any increased activity other then just a little higher energy level. Since we've been feeding them the same amounts and the same frequency,it's not a food reduction. This is hardly a scientific study nor did we have a control group, but the wife and I both are pretty convinced it's the food.

We got this package as part of Amazon's Vines program but we were really thrilled with it - we just chose to make this our new brand of choice. We're very impressed with this brand and highly recommend it to anyone else.

Our Chihuahuas didn't care for this product initially, but adjusted to it over time. I didn't give it 5 stars, because it tends to be expensive, and dogs don't seem to like it at first. But eating healthy is important, and our vet assures us this is one of the best choices for our dogs. Our dogs still prefer table scraps, and sometimes we indulge them. HOWEVER, I'm now going to use my review to pass on some advice: If you are like us, and want to feed your dog from your table, make sure you absolutely DO NOT feed your dogs ANY of the following: Chocolate, grapes or raisins, or avocado. These items are TOXIC to your pets.
I'd recommend you try this product, and give your pets time to adjust to it. It really is good for them.

Size: 17.5-PoundVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
First and foremost this food is made in the USA. That is a must for feeding my Dobie, Max. The Dobie I had before Max died after eating food from China. This happened about 7 years ago and there were all kinds of recalls but too late to save my dog. Since then I have been especially careful about the source of food to feed Max and to ensure that he does not get any made in China. FedEx delivered this USA made dog food yesterday and I decided to serve it to him this morning at his regular breakfast time of 5 AM. Max loves to eat and when he heard me opening the bag of Hill's he came over to see what I was doing. He started jumping around when he got a whiff of the food as I was measuring it into his bowl. When I set the bowl down into his food/water stand he gobbled it down in a New York minute.

There are some foods that Max refuses to eat but this Hill's is to his liking. So, I have a winner that is appetizing and healthy to boot. That is a combination hard to beat.

Having several dogs can lead to some dogs liking one food while others won't eat it. With the Hill's Science Diet food all the dogs ate each bowl and appeared to enjoy it. I would love to try this food long-term to see what other benefits it would offer my dogs. I would recommend this product to other pet owners.

Size: 17.5-PoundVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
My dog likes this food just fine, although there is almost nothing she won't eat, so that's not necessarily an endorsement. I don't actively avoid corn and wheat in my dog's food, although I sort of "passively" avoid them; all things being equal and my budget being balanced in a given month, I'll choose foods that don't contain these. If you scan the ingredients list, you'll see the Hill's Science Diet Active Longevity contains fairly high quantities of both. It also contains no "plain" meat, although chicken meal is the first ingredient (and despite its mystery meat connotations, is not really a bad protein source).

There is always a tradeoff between ingredients and price, whether you're shopping for your human family members or pets. At Amazon's price point, this is not a bad choice. I'm usually more impressed with Science Diet's marketing than with their foods, though, and the Active Longevity is no exception. However, in all fairness, my dog seems to do fine on it, and I don't feel any guilt pangs about choosing it for her. In those months when the budget is stretched, I would consider it among my "second tier" choices.

My Credence(boxer) was only able to eat this for about two weeks. She really ate it well. I was surprised at how much she loved it. She was 9 and a half years of age. She stopped eating in December right after Christmas. I was feeding her soft food, due to her health not being well. She got bad quickly. I do know she did like this food when she got it and did eat it for a couple of weeks, then I believe it was too hard for her to chew. She went rather quickly. She is with me in my heart as of January 6th, 2014. I would recommend this food. I wished I had of gotten this food a lot sooner, like when she was first with me in 2004. Thank You.

My service dog is coming of 'age'...7 years old and I have put him on this. To say he loves it would be an understatement. He literally cries when I am putting it in his bowl in anticipation and literally inhales it. I have fed Hill's Science Diet for over 30 years to all of my dogs and they have done extremely well and lived to ripe old ages. I would not feed them anything else.

Our lab was staying with friends and rather than pack her dog food, I ordered this and sent it to our friends. It arrived the next day. Daisy was happy, I was happy. It was perfect. Now I'm ordering all her food thru Amazon. It beats driving to the store and hauling the heavy bag home.

Not to sure if it is the food or my beagles, but since I have put them on this food my dogs are always hungry. The price was perfect and being able to order it through prime, otherwise I think I'm going to have to go back what I use to feed them.

Thanks for your comments! We have recently gained access to respond to posts!

Sometime dogs appear hungry when they really like they food and just want more of it. Sometimes it could be due to not feeding the proper amount for their weight. If you would like to contact one of our Nutritional Consultants at 800-445-5777 we would be happy to provide you with the proper feeding amount based on your dogs, age, weight and breed.

Thanks again!
