Great for preventing long term problems in large breed dogs

This is an excellent food for a large breed puppy and I always recommend it first to anyone who has one. The long term difference is amazing. I have a 5 1/2 year old great Dane who started on this food and then switched to large breed adult... My dog has never shown any signs of joint problems and still acts like a puppy.... Now I have a new great Dane puppy to add to my family... She's on large breed puppy food now and I would never consider changing to another food

It's a widely known fact that dogs are Carnivores. Why then is the majority of the ingredients in this food corn?? The first ingredient in a quality food should always be a protein of some sort, and preferably the meal of the protein; chicken meal, lamb meal, etc., not the meat itself as in processing it loses a lot of protein. The first ingredient in this food is Ground corn, the next chicken by product meal, the next corn gluten, then liver flavor ??? What does that mean flavor? Corn is hard to digest and is an allergen. It causes skin allergies, hot spots, paw biting, etc. And the price is as high as a quality food such as Wellness, Blue, etc. that have no corn or fillers. If Science Diet wants to compete in the market of quality foods, they should look at the competition and revamp their formula. Those that use this food and like it should just feed your dogs Puppy Chow for half the price.

One Star because...Very Large, and extremely hard!

By Big Red the Mastiff

from Texas, United States

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food:

However... I give the ingredient 100 stars after conducting research and understanding my puppy's nutritional needs. Unfortunately this perfect ingredient is way to large and hard for my 4 month old English Mastiff. My recommendation to SD is to decrease the size, and develop a texture to make more desirable and comfortable for the puppy, as well as to increase sales. My Vet recommended switching my Mastiff to SD from NutriSource, but unfortunately he can't even chew it. It took exactly 20 minutes to attempt to get through one piece after he tried several. I soaked a few in water and he still couldn't eat the kibble. I was even unable to break the MASSIVE kibble by hand dry nor wet. I am very disappointed that such great ingredient can't even be eaten. After my experience I contacted SD and was assisted by a very professional, experienced, concerned, and helpful. Thank you

HUGE VERY HARD KIBBLE

By NeedSmallerKibble

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food:

My German Shepherd 12 week old puppy cannot begin to chew this big hard kibble! I have to soak it an hour bf feed times and it's getting burdonsome. I switched to a different brand that has a small, enjoyable kibble. My adult lab's kibble is half this size.

Perfect switch

By jason

from Dallas, TX, United States

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food:

We have a one year old male "puppy" boxer, during our last vet visit I explained that I was concerned with his lack of proper weight. She asked what food we were feeding and then suggested that we switch to Science Diet's puppy formula. Once we switched, we noticed an almost immediate weight improvement. I'm happy to report that he has filled out very well and his weight has increased.

EXTREMELY large kibble size

By mnop

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food:

The kibble size on this food is huge. My Aussie pup is 7 weeks old and physically can't even bite it. I've always been happy with Hill's food until now. Wouldn't recommend this food until they are several months old.
