  • Excellent Service

    By on

    I'm impressed with the fast service and delivery from Chewy.com. It's new to my 9 yr old Schnauzer and so far there is no problem at all. We like the small bites because he has only the back teeth for chewing. Also the ingredients seem agreeable and appropriate.

    We have an older small dog who loves this product. We've ordered it in the past and will continue with it. We like the natural ingredients in it but the main reason is that our dog likes it! Thank you.

  • Ideal Small Breed Natural Chicken and Brown Rice

    By on

    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.

  • The Very Best

    By on

    Feed our 12 year old Maltese this food. She is a picky eater, but has never had a problem with the Ideal Balance food. This food does not stain her hair like some other brands that we tried.

  • My dogs love this food

    By on

    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.

  • So Happy I CHecked This Out

    By on

    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!

    My 12-year old ShihTzu has been eating Science Diet since she was a puppy. She loves this senior small bite version...and still has the energy of a puppy.

  • Chewy.com Saves the Day

    By on

    Our Yorkies are two years old and we have always fed them Hill's Ideal Balance. However, we learned the store we were purchasing the food from were no longer going to carry the food. They gave us the impression that the food was being discontinued and we were very disappointed. But a friend told us about Chewy.com and to our delight, we found their food on the site. We immediately placed an order and Chewy.com delivered it the next day! Our dogs are very happy customers!!!

  • Very glad to find it!

    By on

    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!
