Rated 3 out of 5 by Missy2 Dog seems to find palatable, but kibble is too large
I started my dog on a combination of the wet and dry G/D two weeks ago per vet directive. I was surprised that the dry kibble is so large, bigger than two other Hills Science Diet prescription formulas I have used for other dogs in the past. All my dogs have been in 10-15 lb. range, and none could eat this size food. It's barrel shaped, not flat discs, so I added hot water to soften, but still she was spitting them onto floor and eating just the wet. I thought at first she didn't like it, but after I smashed them up and put back in dish, she ate fine. Now I smash up a cup at a time each day before putting in her dish with wet. I could just go with wet food only, but my dog is not even 2 yet, so I want to give her something she can chew and bite into for her teeth, not just mush. I don't know why Hills doesn't offer it in a smaller size, but at least she will eat it and that's what matters most right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TeamTurner Great all around!!!
I've ordered from Chewy.com multiple times now and have never had one complaint. Their customer service team is great and always contacts me right away if they have any questions so they don't prolong my order. I always have our order within 2 to 3 days as well. I will continue to order from Chewy.com as long as my 3 four-legged friends need me to! Thank you for being so understanding of our needs!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lminer Noticed change within a couple weeks
My 13 year old shih tzu started drinking more water and having accidents, so I took her to the vet. After running several tests, he said it was just her kidneys slowing down and recommended this dog food. There was definitely a difference in her health within a couple of weeks. She isn't drinking as much water and no accidents. The only problem is the kibble is too large for her and she's not fond of the taste. I've tried wetting it down, but she won't have anything to do with it. So now I'm smashing it up and mixing it up into the canned g/d. She likes the canned, but still turns her nose up at the canned/dry mixture, which she will eventually eat when hungry enough. Having to smash it up is kind of pain, but she's worth it, so will keep doing it. I hope Hills will consider making a smaller kibble in this formula.

I'm not eating it of course, but the three restaurant critics I live with, love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dover Not a good fit for my dogs.
Both my dogs gained weight with GD and had loose stools all the time. Switched back to WD. Disappointed to loose the benefits of GD but not sustainable as a daily diet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lacie9 This is a prescribed food.
I wish the kibble came in smaller pieces for my toy dog with dental issues.

My one year old pup was just recently diagnosed with renal kidney dysplasia in both kidneys. :( We are not sure how long he will live for, but we were told to get him this food to try and help his kidneys in the meantime.
Luckily, he has had no problem with the taste of the food or treats! Ever since we changed his diet I noticed he is pooping less (so his body is able to absorb some of the nutrients he was lacking before). Also, he now has way more energy and is acting the like normal playful puppy he should be, at his age!
I just wish they sold bigger bags than 8.5lbs of dog food. I'm guessing it is probably because it is a prescription diet?
