Customer Reviews

Hill's Ideal Balance Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Adult Dry Dog Food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too bad I have a mixed female dog who is a VERY picky eater. It's just she got used to stealing the kids unwanted food off their table and now no longer cares for her dry dog food unless she is pretty much starving. Otherwise, she will hold off from eating it. Of course, she has no issues trying to steal the cat's dry food. Weird how that works... Anyway, I wanted to find a high-quality dog food, rich in protein, but without any corn, wheat or soy and no artificial flavors or preservatives - which is what Hill's Ideal Balance offers. I love that the bag gives you a recommendation of how to transition your pet on to the new food, too! While my dog is still pretty picky, unfortunately, it seems to be incurable for her, I am happy to report that so far there are no digestive system upsets, flatulence, etc. Plus, she is taking bites and eating it so it must not be too bad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent service, price and quality. I have a five year old Bull Mastiff that has developed an autoimmune disease that can be life threatening. I wanted to find a high quality dog food, rich in protein, but without any corn, wheat or soy and no artificial flavors or preservatives. My veterinarian suggested Hills Ideal Balance. I have switched all three of my dogs, gradually, to this product. I have noticed that my Sam, the B.M., is acting like his old, playful self. He had been depressed and sluggish. There is no "cure" for his disease, but his quality of life is much better. His coat, and my Rottweiler and Corgi/Beagle, have developed shiny, sleek coats. They eat a lesser quantity, but have maintained their optimum weigh. Also, I could not find a reliable source of the larger bags and my daughter suggested "Chewys", a service she has been using for five years for their big, beautiful rottie. The service was great, I ordered the food online with only about two days of food left and rec'd my order on the second day. Another great benefit is that the price was several dollars cheaper than the feed stores or the grocery stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice My dog loves this food, and after a certain big box retailer decided to stop carrying it so they can push their own brand, I consulted my vet who recommended chewy.com So glad I did!- my dog is happy again and the product shipped overnight! Can't ask for more than that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always have used Science Diet Chewy is the best No more runs to the pet food store only to pay more. I have told all my dog park friends and co workers. It's so nice to have my Gordon Setters food at my doorstep when I get home from work You rock Chewy.com

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I have always fed my bassets Science Diet but I was impressed with the ingredients in this food. They have only been on it a few weeks and are doing great. They love the taste and hopefully it will be a healthy option

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced dog food I rescued Otto from a shelter and they were feeding him Science Diet and I didn't want to switch his food bc he was 25 lbs underweight! So I upped it to the Ideal Balance and he has gained almost 10 pounds in 2 weeks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good secondary choice This food has good quality ingredients for this price range. I feed my 3 dogs a top quality food for breakfast and use this one as evening meal which they eat only sometimes.
