Rated 5 out of 5 by Goldiemom02 Excellent for senior with delicate stomachs!
As two of our Golden Retrievers aged, they had trouble digesting foods. Even the dry foods that they had eaten for years. We switched to Hill's Ideal Balance for Mature Dogs and the stomach issues stopped.
The problem was that in order to buy this food, we had to drive 45 minutes to a large pet store. So, decided to try Chewy.com. And we are so pleased that we did! Talk about convenient! We ordered and two days later, the food arrived, and at a lower price than we can get it here. Nothing but rave reviews for both Hill's and Chewy.com!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Roxi So far, great!
My black lab has a history of urinary crystals. She has been on prescription food for 7 years. It is very costly and is not made with the healthiest ingredients. I hated having her on this food, but every time I tried to wean her onto something else, the crystals would come back and I would see increased accidents and blood in her urine. So, I had to continue with the prescription food. I was reading about Hill's Ideal Balance and how it claims to have the ideal balance of protein and minerals to avoid kidney stress and bladder stones, so I thought I would give it a try. I very gradually mixed it in until she was eating all Ideal Balance. It has been 3 months, and so far, Maxi has had no urinary issues! I'm not a veterinarian and I know this might not work for everyone, but it worked for us and I am happy. Her stools are better, too. Her stools were too hard and she often strained, but it is much more normal now.

by RBT2 You should ask my dog (she loves it!)
We rescued a skinny 37 pound mixed breed puppy and fed her Hill's Natural Balance from her first day in our home. She is now a very healthy 80 pound American Staffordshire/Akita mix, fully grown, and happy. She turns her nose up at all other dry foods but loves her Hills Natural Balance. It is obvious that it is good for her- just look

I have an older dog who has a history of being very particular about what he will eat for dry dog food. He loves this food and when the pet store discontinued it, his condition declined when I fed him another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by furryfriendly911 I want my dog to eat as healthy as I would
My dog had the worst gas and acted hungry all the time. Once I put him on a more natural diet including free of corn and gluten, the gas was GONE!!! Of course, he is still a dog and will always look for hand outs (which I never do) or something to drop on the floor (which I don't always have control over) . I no longer worry he's not getting the balanced diet or nutrition he may lacking anymore, or if he ate something he shouldn't have (within reason, of course). In the long run, it will save you money on vet bills and by not over feeding your furry loved one. Thank you, Hills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ivy303 My dog is able to digest without problems
I have a boxer with a sensitive stomach. The food she was eating had a formula change that did not agree with her. I tried the Ideal balance because it was similar to what she had been eating. She has done very well on this product and I am sure she is getting the proper nutrition that she need. I am pleased with this food. I have been using it now for about two and a half months with good results. My only complaint is that it is only available in 4 pound bags or 40 pound bags. I have to buy 4 of the 4 pound bags to get the amount I need. I can not lift the 40 pound bag nor do I have a place to store that big a bag. WHY NO 15 POUND BAGS, PLEASE PACKAGE IN 15 POUND BAGS , that would be helpful Thank you, my dog likes this food too!
