Rated 5 out of 5 by DoggieDad Meets feeding schedule of both of my dogs very well
Our family has both a puggle and a fox terrier/beagle mix. Our veterinarian has told us that our puggle has an ideal weight of around 20 pounds. When we adopted him, he was about 22. We were able to control his food schedule to get him down to 19.5. Before the Science Diet Light we were feeding him another brand of food higher in calories and having putrid gas problems. "Silent but deadly" is what I would call it. He is not all that active but we have been able to keep the weight off of him and almost completely eliminate the gas problem. Puggles are known to have appetites and he is no different. Our smaller fox terrier/beagle mix is typically more active. She is full-grown at 8 pounds over 1 year. We decided that feeding her the same Science Diet Light was a good idea based on its nutritional content and her satisfaction with the product. With her small frame, her weight seems ideal and we feel confident that feeding her this product will maintain this and meet her nutritional needs

Rated 5 out of 5 by kath0031 When you need a lower fat dog food- My dog had pancretitis
I needed a dog food with low fat. My little dachshund had a nasty bout with an illness called pancreatitis. This is a condition that in dogs may be related to not being able to tolerate higher levels of fat in the diet. The problem cause inflamation of the pancreas resulting in pain and vomiting and dehydration.
Two weeks after the initial problem, the vet had us slowly restart her past diet. She again seemed to be having problems, having pain again. At that time the vet said to get her on a low fat diet permanently..
Looking at dog food websites, Hills made it easy to find a lower fat diet. They provided a dry weight percent fat which made it easy to compare the fat amounts in each variety. For that information, I am very thankful.
The Adult Dog light food, is the one I chose. The fat percentage of dry weight is less than 10% as I recall.
Initially, we supplemented the diet with cooked chicken and canned pumpkin and she gained some weight back. She has maintained her weight. (She was never overweight to begin with) She likes the dog food.
She is a the happiest and sweetest dog on earth. I am very thankful that the diet has helped her. She is healthy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delia Outstanding food
I have a 6 yr old poodle who is so fussy that every bag of dog food I buy I have to throw out. She will only eat what I am eating. She has become overweight and sleeps all day. I had a friend use your adult lite dry food and had outstanding results with it and said I should try it. I was very leary because she is so fussy and wasted so many bags, but I said why not.... so I bought a bag and of course she was like no way am I eating this, but I was determined to make this work. I refused to give her any food other than this new food. She went 4 days without eating anything and I was starting to panic. Day 5 came and she ate it, words cannot express how happy I was. well it has been 2 weeks now and she goes to the dog food bucket and asks to be fed. She is now more full of energy and does not sleep all day long. I am sure she will be dropping to a normal weight very soon. I am so very thankful that I have finally found something she will eat, ask for and get back to the dog she should be. Thank you all so much. I will always be using this and telling everyone I know to switch to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobnziv42 This product has help keep the love of my life my best friend healthy!
My best friend is a pitbull mix, she is white and brindle and the best dog on earth! She just turned 7 years old this past Tuesday. Since bringing her home through rescue at 6 weeks we have kept her on Science Diet food. She has remained healthy and happy that shows from the inside out. Recently I lost my job due to the economy and was forced to purchase a less expensive food. Right away we began to see a difference in her activity and in her coat and apprence. She developed allergies and other problems as well. I made the choice to sacrifice my own food quality to better hers. I began to feed her science diet again. In less than a month her allergies were begging to clear and she was quickly back on the road to herself. I can't ask more of the quality of life Hills has given my family. Thank you.
