Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Made my pup itchy/have loose stool My vet recommended this food for my Golden Retriever puppy after having no success with Blue Buffalo puppy food (which I also purchased on this site.) After a week of transitioning him to this food, he seemed to like the taste better than Blue, but it gave him diarrhea, horrendous gas, and he was constantly itching. After about 2 more weeks of trial, I decided enough was enough and switched him to Taste of the Wild puppy food. His stool immediately cleared up (I'm talking less than 48 hours later) and he's stopped itching so frequently. Obviously this may just be a problem for my puppy in particular, but I wouldn't recommend this food. June 20, 2016

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fair ingredients My vet recommend for my new puppy and we took a sample and bought a bag for her. As a new dog mom I did my extensive research on very reputable sites, and found out what ingredients are biologically appropriate and which are not. Grains are not required, and can actually cause GI upset, as dogs are opportunistic carnivores-meat eaters as well as fruit and veggies. Pea protein is also a cheaper way to up the protein in dog food although pea protein is not very usable or quality for a dogs protein source. My pup's stool was also varying with this product, while on her new diet it is consistently healthy. Overall a fair product, but there are more appropriate diets available for your dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent source of food for my Prince. Hill's Ideal balance was recommended through a family member. I love all of the great benefits that it has to offer for our puppy. I've tried a few others before this brand and he was charged right after eating which always caused quite a stir. I'm going to keep giving him this brand of chow long after his puppy stage is over, they have other great foods that will continue to benefit our Prince. He loves this food. December 28, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wouldn't eat it I tried transitioning my beagle puppy onto this food, but she refused to eat it. We were transitioning from a high end priced and high protein food and she just refused to eat it. I would have to encourage her by adding warm water or bringing the food to her. Had her checked out by a vet and everything is fine. It's strange that she wouldn't eat it, especially since she's a beagle. I was worried about the protein in the previous food being too high and wanted her on a more "balanced" diet. I was really disappointed because Hills is a brand I trust. I thought maybe this had too much grain in it and not enough Chicken Meal, since it's lower on the ingredient list and that is the reason why she wouldn't eat it. She loved the oven baked treats though. November 19, 2014
