I have a total of 3 dogs, a Cocker Spaniel, Siberian Husky, and Golden Retriever. The Husky is a rescue, most likely a sled dog that was dumped, and has always been a picky eater and would not eat dog food, and when he did it was every 3 days. Since switching to Ideal Balance Slim and Healthy, our Husky now eats twice a day! What an improvement! Ideal balance has made! My Golden Retriever who is 4 years old, developed horrible dandruff, which I believe was from a dog shampoo I tried and never used again. He also developed a skin infection, along with it, and his coat on his back became dry, brittle, and started to fall out in clumps. The vet put him on an antibiotic, and a special shampoo, which both helped with the infection and only somewhat with the dandruff. I decided to switch from a high end expensive grain free dog food, to Ideal Balance Slim and Healthy. This was 2 months ago when I made the switch. I can say that my Golden's coat has grown back, No more dandruff, and his coat is soft, and not dry and brittle anymore! He would also pull his tail fluff out, why probably from separation anxiety, or allergies, but since switching to Ideal Balance, I looked this morning, and his tail fluff is growing back, and looking more fluffier! My Cocker Spaniel, he eats anything, and I currently have him on Ideal Balance Mature Adult 7+ years as he is almost 9 years old! All I can say is what an amazing difference this food has made in my dog's!

I tried this product with my babies; I have 4 dogs ranging in age from 1 1/2 years old to almost 5 years old. They like Ideal Balance dry dog food. However, they were not keen on this product. Initially there was only a 25% approval rating, as only the older dog ate some...and not right away. I made a second attempt to see if the dogs would taste this product, and one other dog did try it out, but only after also trying out wet dog food. So overall there was a 50% approval rating for this product. Even though this product has chicken, it did not draw their attention...even to just try out a few pieces.

      from Pink Hill, NC, United States

      I have used this food for over 1 year and both of my adult boxers have issues one with food sensitivity and the other is a wee bit over weight. But thanks to Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy I am able to use one dog food that they both love! Thank you Hill's


      Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy


      from St. Louis, MO

      We recently changed our 5 year old American Bulldog from Hill's Science Diet Lite to the Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken & Barley. So far it has been a good food for her that she really likes and is not causing any reactions like some other foods have in the past.

      This has helped with weightloss for my dogs.


      from Buena Park, CA

      I have 2 older dogs who are both overweight. This product has helped them lose and maintain the weight loss. They love the taste and are always excited for meal time.


      Excellent Product


      from Ottawa, ON, Canada

      We have been extremely satisfied with the results of the Ideal Balance food for both our golden retrievers. This is a very high fiber food which has helped to satisfy their appetite and maintain weight as well as eliminating any digestive issues.


      This product offers low calorie dry food for my dog


      from New Jersey, USA

      I was looking for a low calorie alternative for me Aussie mix. I researched different brands and am using Ideal Balance. My vet said this was a very good product. A bit expensive since I am feeding two Aussie mixes with it but they are worth the expense.


      I like that my pet enjoys his meals.


      from Undisclosed

      It nice that my pet enjoys his meal times, and hopefully the ideal balance is as good for him as advertised.. There's no stress that he may not like what I am feeding him.


      Ideal Balance Fit & Trim Chicken and Barley


      from Philadelphia, PA, USA

      Oreo my Shi Tzu at 6 yrs of age. I had a hard time getting him to loose weight. Oreo does not like dry food, I fed him can food, high fat low protein. He got sick many times eating it to. In order for him to get healthy I had to change his diet. After researching dog food I came across Ideal Balance. He eats about 1 to 2 ounces a day the most. He is in great shape, and better than he was when he ate the wet food. I cant believe he loves it. I'm so greatful. Thanks, Barb

      This product really helps with weight control plus coat condition.


      from San Angelo, TX, USA

      My border collie really likes this food and it lives up to what it was developed to do in taking her weight down and maintaining her weight. We had some trouble with her coat on other products but on Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy her coat is thick and shinny. I would like to have low calorie "Biscuits" also in any Hills dog food product. I bought Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy Sensitive last time and I think I like it even better, however, I haven't been able to find it again. I began feeding Hills Science Diet products in 1972 when I was breeding and exhibiting Keeshonds. I have competed in Conformation, Obedience, Rally Obedience, Tracking, and K9 Nose Work with Keeshonden, Bouvier des Flandres, Australian Shepherds, and now my Border Collie.
