  • Good stuff

    By on

    Been using ideal balance mature for 4 or 5 years now for our little girl Dora the Dachshund who is 11. She loves it and her vet approves. Very good product that is getting harder to find in stores so I turned to Chewy and found it. It was also available in a bigger bag at a cheaper price per unit. Dora highly recommends it. So does her little brother Nemo who sneaks in some bites.

  • Happy dog mom!

    By on

    I'm so glad I saw the commercial for chewy.com! I used to buy Riley's dog food at a local store and they discontinued it, I went to get a bag and they only had small bags. I ordered from chewy and had Riley's food in 3 days! Thank you chewy.com! Riley seems to be doing well on this food we switched from buffalo blue. Happy dog.

  • review of Chewy's c/s

    By on

    I ordered the wrong dog food item. I ordered Mature dog & should have ordered Adult age range. I called C/S provided order # etc. # 1. when you call you get a person not a menue. # 2. person looked at my order,asked about my dog & age to insure I would receive the proper food. # 3. He took care of the credit for the incorrect food, even though it was my mistake.& has the correct food on the way. # 4 My dog & my daughters two dogs love the food & treats. Best C/s I've dealt with regardless of the company. Recommend Chewy to everyone we meet.

  • mix up in shipment

    By on

    Thanks for asking - was going to call. I know there was a mix up at the beginning - as I need mature 7/8 and up - as my pups are nearing 16. I did receive the mature and thanks for making the extra effort to change but in the change regular nibbles were sent - my pups are small - weighing 5 lbs and 12 lbs. Is there anyway a note be placed so we receive only small breed dog food. Thank you Nancy todd

  • This product helps with weight control

    By on

    I have two Labs, one is 12 years old and the other is 10. They were beginning to gain weight on the dog food that I was feeding them; therefore, I changed to Hill's Ideal Balance and their weight is back under control.

  • Same Product as Hills Large Breed

    By on

    Tried to reorder Hills Ideal Balance Chicken and Brown Rice for Large Breed Mature Dogs. Learned it was no longer available. Contacted Chewy by phone and with the help of the customer support person we determined together that Hills had merely dropped the "Large Breed" separate designation but the ingredients for "Mature Adult" version were identical. When I received the dog food the individual nuggets were even the same size. Really glad we didn't have change the diet for our "mature" lab!

  • Great for my dog's tummy

    By on

    I was using regular regular Purina dog food from Target or Walmart and my dog kept having inconsistent bowel movements and would often have diarrhea. She was about 8 at the time so I switched to a Senior diet and this has been great on her tummy since the beginning. I even tried switching to another senior diet and she seemed to have overactive bowel movements with that one, so I had to switch back. This is definitely a winner for her.

  • Good content

    By on

    Product arrived on time and as described. Appears to contain healthy ingredients. Size of bites are a little large for our 10 lb. dog. Have to add a little moist food to entice our fussy pup. All in all a good buy.

  • Dogs Love It; Price is Good

    By on

    I've used Hills dry food for my dogs for the last 25 years and have great confidence in their products. I changed over to the Ideal Balance line last year when one of my dogs started showing signs of a sensitive stomach. I've been using this product for my 7-year old lab mix and 7-year old border collie mix and both dogs seem to love it. A few months ago PetSmart and Petco quit carrying this line. When I asked why at the stores, I was given all kinds of misinformation. I was so happy to find the product still available at Chewy -- and for a significantly lower price than offered by the box stores. Now I don't have to make a trip to PetSmart -- EVER!
