Like the other reviewer, I received a free bag as a BzzAgent. But we have been buying Science Diet dog food since our oldest dog, Henry, became diabetic. Because of the high quality of science diet food, and with consent from our vet, we have been feeding our other three dogs the diabetic Science Diet dog food because its high in protein. So when I had the opportunity to try another type of Science Diet, I was thrilled. This looks exactly like the w/d food and if my dogs' reaction is any judge then it tastes just as good. I don't have any problems getting any of the three dogs to eat the Natural Balance and their bowls are just as clean. With a dog that has dietary issues, it is important to me to feed my dogs the best, natural and healthiest dog food. My only problem is keeping Henry away from the Natural Balance. I would recommend Science Diet to everyone.

I started my chi/dox mix puppies (2 brothers; 4.5mo old) on Merrick, which made their poops very stinky--but they both really liked it. Now, they've been on this SD for half a small bag and one of my pups' poops turn white within the hour in the sun. That tells me there is too much of something (bone meal? calcium?) in the formula. And when it's time to eat, only one runs to the bowl to chow down. The other (stinky poo dog) runs to the bowl in chow-time excitement but then lets the other eat before he really participates.

I had a chi out east for 16 years and most of those years she was on Precise. Nice, compact, solid poops. She was an all-day grazer, fit and healthy, and seemed to like it. I can't get it locally like I can these other two brands, so I'm starting a new account to order Precise.

Not the best

Comments about Hill's Ideal Balance Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food:

Hard to get the measuring cup into the bag because of the stay fresh seal. Also makes it impossible to pour. Awful design. Only used this because he was already on it. Since Science Diet is not sold exclusively to vets anymore their products have gone down the tube and is filled with corn. He will be transitioned from this ASAP.
