Customer Reviews

Hill's Ideal Balance Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Puppy Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves the taste of this food. My mini goldendoodle was eating another pet food recommended by her breeder, but her vet thought this food would be a more quality food. I'm transitioning in this new food, and my dog is picking through her food to eat this rather than the old one! No digestive issues on day 2, just a bouncy, happy girl who loves mealtime. I think we'll be buying this for quite a while!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good food for pups My litter of Springer Spaniels started on a different puppy food when first weaned. Their reaction was lukewarm, at best. I had to supplement that food to entice them to eat. When I switched them to Ideal Balance, it was clearly more delicious! They would eat it slightly moistened, and then even enjoyed it dry (7 week old pups!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy likes new food We are phasing in the Natural Balance. Our puppy seems to like better because he is picking through and leaving the old food. Note: took almost 10 days to receive this food. So if you are running low, beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great puppy food This brand is healthy and my puppy loves it! He started off with purina puppy food which I didn't think was healthy for him, I weened him off slowly and now he loves the Ideal Balance food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for puppies with sensitive stomach Our puppy Milly seems to be have a super sensitive stomach. We've tried Merrick, Blue Buffalo, Nutro, Purina and every time ended in a visit to the Vet. Hill's Ideal Balance for puppies seems to be the only food that doesn't upset her stomach and allows her to have normal stools. We were upset when this brand was removed from Pet Store Shelves, but now are really happy that it is available at chewy.com. The order arrived in a timely manner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My puppy is thriving My puppy is now 8 months old and she has done very, very well on Ideal Balance. She likes the taste and it seems to be easy for her to digest. She has firm, easy to pick up, bowel movements which helps ease potty training. I also like the packaging that maintains and delivers a very fresh product. And all at a price you can't beat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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 from Puppy & parents both happy We had been feeding our pup this food since she came home, and her breeder had fed it to her as well. She loves it - and I love that it gets delivered to the house, and is still cheaper than driving out to the store to get it!
