I'm a BzzAgent and received a 4# bag of Hill's Pet Science Diet Ideal Balance for free to try for my service dog, Toby. Obviously Toby is very important to me, so I want to take very good care of him. I checked out Ideal Balance's ingredients and purposes and I'm very impressed! To start him out slowly (a rapid change can cause digestive issues), I used Ideal Balance as training treats. First I wanted to see what value treat this was to Toby. Some training requires very little in the way of rewards, while other training requires a very high value treat to encourage him. Toby considers this very high value. So ie, it's very yummy to him, in fact using Ideal Balance, I taught him the 'I do, I do' (in the pic below), give me 5, give me 10 and wave. Since it has quality ingredients, and less 'fillers' he needs a lot less food to maintain his weight, and therefore has less poop. Very high value to me! :)They have chicken and brown rice for puppies up to 1 year, adults 1-6 years and mature, 7 years and up. That's my only con, that it's only available in chicken. My other dog is an 18 year old Border Collie mix, who can't eat chicken as it severely upsets his digestive system (ie very bad diarrhea). I feed him lamb & rice dry dog food, mixed with canned dog food and hot water, so that it's soft enough to not cause him discomfort in chewing his meals. It is unusual for a dog of his size to live this long, perhaps because I try to feed him healthy food. I am hoping that Hill's Pet will make a lamb and rice later? Hopefully not too much later, after all, he is 18.I found a rebate form on their website, ([@] and search for Ideal Balance rebate) to receive a refund on their 4# bag (if purchased before 12/31/11) so what do you have to lose by trying it? Currently (as of 12/1/11) Pet Food Direct has the 4# bag on sale with free shipping! I would recommend this to a friend, in fact I have already recommended it to many, along with a link to the rebate.

It's hard to review a dog food when you aren't the one eating it. I feel my dog was less than impressed and hardly (didn't want anything to do with it) touched it. However my dog is VERY picky and usually puts her nose up at any food. I tried on multiple occasions to have my 11 year old malamute try this blend of dog food, with no hope. I can't complain that its doing anything bad to my dogs diet but I can visually tell you it LOOKS like a really cheap dog food. HOWEVER the smell is nothing like those. It's actually hearty smelling and somewhat meaty. My dog would pick up a few pellets and toss them outside her bowl.

My dog absolutely loved his Hills Ideal Balance Dog food. I love how it has no corn, wheat, or soy and no artificial colors. Its got everything my dog needs in his diet. Protein, fruits, and veggies. It made my dogs coat very shiny. It makes me happy its USA made too. Thanks Hills and Crowdtap for his 2lb sample bag.

This sample came in an ice bag with a $5 coupon for future use. I mixed it in with my dogs other food the first day and then gave it to her by itself the second day. She enjoyed it and ate right away. She did not have any bad side effects from switching foods. She also did not leave any food behind which she usually does.

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

At first, Teddy Bear was a little apprehensive about trying something new. It took about a day and then he couldn't stay away from his Hill's Ideal Balance dry food. He's not much of a crunchy eater but I'm happy to report that this was a success!!! I'm already on my second bag. I feel like a better dog mom giving him something so nutritious! Thank you for introducing me to Hill's!!!
