Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken & Barley Excellent dry food, small crunchy kernels that my dogs immediately LOVED. No hesitation in eating it, even use just a few bits as a reward treat. I purchased this particular food to help my overweight Chihuahua & Sheltie to lose wt. Loved the quality ingredients too, especially coconut, and no grain products. No digestion problems. October 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves this food! My dog looks slim and the vet is pleased with his weight. I am very happy with the quick service from Chewy - my first experience was a great one. Will start to order my cat food thru you as well. Highly recommend! October 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog doesn't notice that's weight control My dog is a Senior and had ACL surgery last year. She was not heavy but the doctor's wanted her to lose more weight to help with the leg. She is a picky eater and I was worried she wouldn't like weight control food. She loves it. She has lost the 5 pounds they wanted easily without her even noticing. October 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent dog food choice for mature dogs We've searched high and low for a low calorie/ low fat dog food for our lab mix who suffers from pancreatitis. We tested quite a few products before settling on this brand. Our dog is excited to eat hills ideal balance at every meal!! We do add pumpkin and a little chicken stock to help him with digestion, however he has no problem eating it dry. His stools are normal, his coat is shiny, and we often get compliments on his weight and physique. We're very happy to have found a food that works great...he has had no more pancreatitis attacks since we've switched to this diet. September 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog have been on this brand/type for 5 years and done very well and loves this food My local store stopped supplying this brand and fortunately my Vet referred me to Chewy.com so he can stay with the food he loves that keeps him healthy. My dogs coat is so soft and yet he's able to maintain a good weight for a long and healthy life. October 5, 2016
