Rated 5 out of 5 by Goose00 My girls (my dogs of course) LOVE this stuff and helps keep their waistlines trim!
This is a great product if you need to watch your dogs weight. My Stella and Lucy have both dropped a few pounds and for an extra treat I add canned pumpkin for a little more fiber and flavor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Weston4 I hope it will take a little weight off my 3 golden retrievers
I have been using Science Diet for my dogs for over 40 yrs. (since it had to be purchased in Feed Stores) and have always found it good for all my dogs over the years. Then it fell "out of favor" so with my new pups 3 yrs. ago Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance was recommended by the breeder. They did well on that until the Co. was sold (they said the recipe hadn't changed!) but my pups wouldn't eat the "new" product so I went back to Hill's Ideal (not Science Diet) and they couldn't lick it up fast enough. Now as I seem to have a slight weight problem and Hill's has come out with the new Slim and Healthy (not available in any Pet Stores west of the Mississippi!) I am trying that and they seem to like it....we'll see if they may a drop a lb. or two!
Not a recommendation....yet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Molly Great for my dog with pancreatitis issues
My 14 year old dog has had a couple of bouts of pancreatitis and can’t handle anything that isn’t low fat. I did the Hills i/d lowfat canned food for awhile but it was inconvenient and I didn’t like that it had caramel color.
I tried a few other high quality low fat foods and he still had soft mucousy stools so I tried the Slim and Healthy and I’ve been feeding him this for about 4 months.
My dog has done great on this food and he really likes it. The ingredients seem to be high quality. I also like that it is made in the U.S.
I started purchasing it from Chewy but I found it at Petsmart for $24 a case and it’s almost $30 here so I get it at Petsmart right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by micaelvis Ideal Balance for our 15 year old Catahoula Leopard Dog
Our dog showed up at my husbands shop in bad shape at about 4 months old and living on June bugs, malnourished and abused. We always fed him Science Diet until the "Designer Dog Foods" as I call them came out. So my husband wanted to switch to Blue Buffalo and we did. He began having so many problems but we attributed it to his age. Not the case. We had him at the vet and I stated he seemed to be having stomach problems and I asked the vet what she would recommend to feed him. She said she had 9 pets and has always fed them Science Diet with no problems. Her assistant who also works at a dog shelter said that she had heard so many complaints about Blue, that we were just one of many having problems. Guess what? We switched back and was happy to find out Science Diet and had grain free recipe. He has always been kind of picky eater but gobbles down the Ideal Balance and his stomach problems have cleared up after about two weeks of weening him off of Blue. I highly recommend the Ideal Balance for every dog. Now we have a happy, healthy, energetic 15 year old and we are happy too. We were just about at our wits end. Thank you Science Diet for this wonderful product. Haven't looked yet to see if Ideal Balance comes in dry food also and hoping it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ronikala45 DOGS LOVED IT!!
They both seemed to really love this canned food!! I always use the canned type to give them their meds...just a little around the pill, and a tad in their food.
Although this food is quite dry and not as easy to mold around the pill, it did not seem to matter to them, as they gobbled up whatever I offered in my hand.
I also liked the little specks of color, which were the veggies I'm sure, in the mix....made me appreciate the vegetable content....and they both love all sorts of veggies, so an added bonus!
I also appreciate the coupons offered, as I use coupons when buying any and all their wet food, as well as their prescription Science Diet and Ideal Balance dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrsraybird My picky dog loved this product!
Although it took a while for him to get used to a new product, my 10 year old Jack Russell enjoyed this wet food! I loved the fact that it was a weight loss item that he would eat (a big problem for my picky Buddy!), and I appreciated the veggies in the food. It made the sample dry food I also tested go down a little easier...just mixed in a spoon of the wet. Your products are always high quality, and I had no qualms about serving this to my dog. Highly recommended! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by PollysMom They loved it.
My 2 Papillons loved this new Slim & Healthy canned food. It didn't last long at the house. I usually give them about a tablespoon of wet food with the evening dry food. They loved it so much that they would give me those eyes that said, "Mommy a little more please" and I didn't have to feel guilty for giving them just a tiny bit more. This is the only canned food aimed at maintaining a healthy weight that I have seen. I was excited to try it the first time and even more happy that the kids loved it.
