Hill's Ideal Balance Small Breed Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Adult Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love this food My dogs are picky eaters and I wanted food without soy or corn so thought I would give this a try. Both my dogs love it. They have no digestion problems like they did with the previous food I tried. The kibble is small and easy for them to chew. (they are 12 to 15# dogs.) I would recommend this food and will continue to purchase it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Small Breed Natural Chicken and Brown Rice This item in the 15 lb size is excellent. I have 2 yorkies at 12 and 15 lbs and they BOTH love the size and the flavor of this dog food. In addition it agrees with them both - their coat is nice and shinny, and they are very healthy. Thank you HILLS for making this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very glad to find it! This food I was told was discontinued by my vet and the pet store I purchased it from. My dogs love this food so I was glad to find it. They have to be on low protein diets and this fits that criteria for them. Please keep carrying this food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the best dry dog food!!! I have a 5# pomeranian that doesn't feel eating is necessary to life BUT totally loves Ideal Balance for mature small dogs. That is the only dry dig food she will eat. She is almost 5 now and has been eating this food for almost 3 years. Before this I was changing food alllll the time. She doesn't care if she eats people food either. But she is very healthy and eats about 1/4 + cup a day I now order her food from Chewy.Com as Petco and PetSmart in Kenosha, WI no longer sells it in their stores. They also say it is no longer being made!!! Not nice to lie to customers if they don't want to carry it. But thank you as my Luanne loves it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our dogs love this food. We have been using Ideal Balance for our three fur kids for about 3 years. The 2 youngest are a little over 2 years, and it was all they knew until recently. A major pet chain where we purchased it stopped carrying it, and pushed us to a new brand. The two young dogs both got sick and stopped eating. The 3rd just wouldn' eat. After getting through the health issues, they still would not eat. We finally found Ideal Balance online at Chewey's. We immediately ordered it and when it arrived a couple of days later we opened the bag and filled dishes. Within minutes bowls were empty. Appetites have returned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Happy I CHecked This Out Until recently I have only been able to find this dog food at a local store that caters to farmers. It has stopped my Pug's allergy symptoms and he love it. I was concerned about the fact that it would cost me about 1.50 a bag more but when it came so fast and I realized the bag is slightly larger than the one I have been purchasing I realized that not only was I gaining a reliable source for his healthy food but it was a competative price and delivered to my door!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for a healthy dog Our vet recommended this and we have been very happy with it. Our dog (a Mini-Schnauzer/Poodle mix) is energetic, has an excellent coat, bright eyes, and enthusiastically eats this food. Looking at the mix of ingredients, and the Hill's brand, we are very confident in our choice.
