Rated 3 out of 5 by Becky32 Not for my picky eater.
I was impressed with all of the reviews, so I thought I would give it a try
My finicky eater will not eat it.

My dog is a former Innova dog, he is really doing well on this food. It was a great switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pammy My dogs love this product.
I highly recommend this food. Was feeding my dogs another brand which is much more expensive than Hill's and they got a skin allergy and didn't have a lot of energy. My vet switched us to Hill's and no more allergies and they are healthy and active now. I also give them Hill's Science Diet canned food with the dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeffK A real hit with the pups!!
My miniature schnauzer and chihuahua absolutely love this food. What is great is that I make it available to them all the time and they both eat "when hungry" and given the lack of filler and artificial flavor in this food, we are maintaining healthy weight. The schnauzer has trimmed up a bit (needed) and the chihuahua has gained a bit (also needed, shes a picky eater). We've had no abnormal stools since moving to ideal balance and -knock on wood- no throw ups. Schnauzers typically are prone to an upset stomach and mine is no exception when eating other types of food.
I really love the no wheat, corn, soy value here as well. Since being diagnosed as allergic to wheat and also having a soy sensitivity, I have become all too conscious of how those ingredients are used unnecessarily in our own food. There is simply no reason to feed these fillers to our pets if it is avoidable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ckcsfrenzy My Cavalier gobbled it right up!
When I learned about Hill's and their company story, as well as how their food was made, I was extremely impressed. Since then, I decided that I'd try three different formulas with my baby, Beauty, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I haven't been able to try the Science Diet Small Breed Adult formula, but she's been on the Ideal Balance Small Breed formula for a month now, and she took to it very easily.
The IB Small Breed formula is highly palatable, and perfect for finicky eaters. It has all the right ingredients that all pet parents are looking for. My only con about this food, is that it didn't seem to make Beauty's coat as glossy as the Science Diet Healthy Mobility (Small Bites) formula did.
If Hill's adjusted this formula to where it gave the similar results of the SD Healthy Mobility formula coat-wise, this food would be an all around winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GreenFlyingM0nkey Wonderful for my picky eaters
I have seven chihuahuas and each have their own taste and nutrition needs. Before I was feeding them a dog food that they all seemed to agree on but the pricing was way too high for that of seven dogs. So I looked around and tried a few different food. Some they would refuse to eat, others gave them an upset stomach, others the bites were too large, didn't meet the nutrition needs or were to high in protein. But with Ideal balance I have found it to be appealing to my dogs one because it kind of smells like my granola bars and the bites are small enough for my oldest/smallest dog to eat without problem. Since I switched I have noticed a significant difference in their digestive health. They have the same nice healthy coat of hair and they cry by the contained of food for seconds. They liked it so much that I switched my cat to ideal balance.

Thanks a lot for very reasonable price of the product we always use for our poppy. We spent much more for the same product in PetsMart. Thanks again, Ella
