I adopted a dachshund puppy at the pound. He was never an active puppy, and ended up gaining weight really fast. So I took him off of puppy food and started him on an adult diet; he continued to gain the weight. I tried several different brands of "light" dog foods and walking him on a regular basis, to try to avoid having a fat puppy. It has been roughly six months since he has been on Science Diet, and he reached his ideal weight about two months ago; weighing in at 18 pounds, starting at 27 pounds (at his worst), my puppy is full grown and healthy and active.
I love this food for several reasons: Hill Pet has amazing promos to make this food very cost effective, my dog loves it, his coat is shinier than ever and very active, which is a nice change from his usual docile attitude.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katrina Great Product-it delivers!
I highly recommend this product. I first started feeding this to my rescue (4 years ago). She was over 10 lbs overweight when I got her. she lived in a foster home for nearly two years and was fed table food often. Within a few weeks of feeding her this formula she was down to her ideal weight. I continue to feed her this, but being that she is now approx 8 years old I may have to switch to a Senior formula. I have a many dogs over the last 25 years and have always fed them Science Diet and am very pleased with all formulas. Years ago I switched to a cheaper brand and immediately went back to Science Diet. Thank you for a great product to keep our fur babies healthy and happy!

Our 1 year old English mastiff has been on a couple high end foods and every food we tried gave him diarrhea. We currently changed vets and they recommended the science diet light. This is the first month that he had went without diarrhea since we've had him. I'm so glad we were able to find a food that helped his stomach....

Long time user, got 17 dogs, live in the country and take in abandoned dogs and cats. I believe Science Diet keeps them healthier and the Light and some exercise keeps them from getting too heavy. Got a few with health problems - use w/d and I/d for them.

Our dog enjoys the taste and the food is easily digested. Good way for her to loose weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcy25 ADULT LITE SCIENCE DIET
I have had my nine year old rat terrier on it for many years. He does give me the look of "not this again" but I just shrug my shoulders at him.
This particular food also seems to make him do a lot of #2's in the yard. I don't know if it is the foods way of keeping him "Lite" or his way of paying me back for feeding it to him.
On an occassion when around another dog's food he will eat theirs like he's stealing it (usually a cheap brand). He never does that with his food. He does burp after some of his meals so I'm guessing somedays he likes it and when around another dog's food, he doesn't like it.

I've been feeding my pets this dog food for many years. It's great for weight control, helps maintain a healthy pet, and my dogs love the taste. Once they have reached their weight goal I add a small amount of high protein to their diet such as baked chicken or fish and I have had great success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tontokittie I am happy and my pets are healthy
It seems like my yellow lab looks at food and gains a pound. I put him on science Diet Adult light and without having to change the amount I was giving his vet said he was down to his ideal weight after about three months. He's continued on that food and has maintained his ideal weight beautifully. I also have a cat who is on Hill's prescription diet for joint health and I'm so happy that he loves it considering he refuses to take any other kinds of joint support meds and he has gone through hip surgery. Overall, I'm very pleased with Hill's products.

My big boy had 3 knee surgeries and gained a lot of weight when laid up. We put him on the Light and he lost weight and has maintained it for 3 yrs. he loves it, it doesn't upset his stomach and we have our girl on it because she was starting to gain, she's doing great too.

My Australian Shepherd has been overweight since he got neutered. We switched him from advanced fitness to the light formula after talking to a hill's representative. He will eat just about anything, but he really likes this food. My other Aussie even tries to sneak and get some of it! I think it is worth the money over grocery brands. The biggest bag usually lasts him longer than a month.
I have seen conversion of fat to muscle, and he seems to be enjoying himself more. Would definitely recommend this food to other overweight or prone-to dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda22 SD's Light food tastes great!
My rescued Beagles, Bagle and CiCi (bagel and cream cheese) love the light food. The extra fiber helps them feel satisified with a smaller portion, and keeps them from getting too fat, because they are real food hounds! That's not suprising, but our 2 year old rescued, one eyed, Shih Tzu mix is crazy about the light food too, she even barks at the food safe (Beagles# for a nibble #she's a grazer#. She prefers it #the taste# over everything else #I've tried), and she wants the regular kibble, although she only weighs 10 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EdBob54 Our 5 year old female Great Pyrenees loves her meal time with Science Diet
Maggie starts pacing around when it is time for her breakfast or dinner, and whe she hears the food being poured into her bowl she watches semi-patiently until she sees we are walking with her bowl to her normal eating area then she starts bouncing around. The Science Diet Light helps us keep the weight off her, being a large dog we try to keep her weight around 95 lbs and this has done the trick along with regular walks. We've been using Science Diet for our dogs for over 25 years and would not use another brand for our dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbie13 Keeps my dogs healthy & easy to groom.
I have been using this product for 14 years and I can not believe the gorgious coats on all my dogs. I get asked all the time how I keep them so well groomed, it's easy when their coats are so manageable. The shine to them is my favorite part. They are very active, healthy & maintain a consistant wieght. I just lost my oldest Golden Retriever at the age of 14 1/2 years, I contribute alot of his long life to good food and that is why I will continue to feed my other 2 Goldens this product. Thanks Hills!

Rated 5 out of 5 by missy2scotty This product helps keep the cholesterol down
I had a schnoodle that the cholesterol would settle in her eyes and this made it difficult for her to see. This product was recommended by the eye vet.
Now I have two schnauzers and I have them on it to help prenvent the problem I had with my other dog.
I was told this is a problem with the schnauzer breed with the eyes.
I highly recommend the use of this product so you will possibly not have to hurt because you pet might be going blind because of not being able to process the cholesterol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daner Great for maintaining weight
My senior dachshund is currently eating this food as has enjoyed it for over a year now. He became very overweight and was put on Hill's r/d in order to lose the excess weight safely, and once he reached his goal weight he has been eating this to maintain and has done very well. His coat looks great, he has a great amount of energy for his age, and he LOVES eating it. I really enjoy feeding my dogs a food that has the research behind it by using Hills/ScienceDiet/Ideal Balance products.

This is a great dog food for my pit bull! He has sensitive skin and a very sensitive stomach and science diet is great for him! The only dog food he can eat. I would recommend science diet, especially for dogs that have sensitive skin and stomach

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer great to help with weight loss!
We have 3 dogs and two had a weight issue. At the vets recommendation, she gave us 3 "light" dry foods to choose from and we chose to try the Science Diet Light and the dogs love it, we give it to all 3, and the best part of all is the two "chunky" girls dropped significant weight to be in the right weight and have maintained that for about a year now! I wish they had something like this for me! Highly recommend this for weight loss in your beloved companions!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolyn03 My dogs love this!
While Science Diet is more expensive than supermarket brands...you SEE the difference in your dog's coat, teeth, digestive habits and overall health. My vet recommended this from the very beginning for my two dogs, and it is the only food I give them. They get so excited when I get their food out for them...to see my 10 year old dog jump up and down when her food is getting scooped out shows me that these dogs LOVE this food.

I have 2 schnauzers....ages 2 and 9. A year or so ago, my vet said my oldest had high cholesterol (which doesn't affect dogs like it does people) and that he needed more fiber in his diet (don't we all!!). My vet recommended Science Diet Light (dry). My dogs seem to love it!!! I never have problems with their bowel movements and they are both full of energy. I highly recommend this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DancerJava2 vet recommended for weight loss
My dogs have been on this dog food brand since they were puppies. Over the years my dogs have gained excessive weight. My vet recommended this food in order to take the extra weight off my dogs. It worked, I did not have to cut the amt of food I was giving them and the extra weight came off. The dogs look good and are a healthy weight now. And I don't feel like they had to starve to get this accomplished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sue02 Consistency and availability.
My 2 dogs have had nothing but Science Diet, 14 and 9 years each. They prefer the original flavor, regular bite. Seems that the small bites has a different color and flavor than reg bites. I feel they need consistency in their diet and they thrive on Hills Science Diet. We are very satisfied with the product. If one of dogs has a skin/digestive problem, there is a product for that too.
