  • Better Eating Habits

    By on

    My three dogs, all under 20 Lbs don't have a problem eating. I bought this bag to see if they'd like it, which they did however, the bits are really small and are like pellets, which doesn't give them the chewing enjoyment they were getting from their old brand, my fault and not the food's fault.

  • Happy pups!

    By on

    We have five (yes,FIVE!)large dogs, several f them require weight management. This food has been a great value. Our dogs love it, especially the small bites, and they don't even ask to have wet food stirred in anymore.

  • He loves it

    By on

    Think this will be his go to food for everyday feeding. Small bites are better since he seems to inhale his meals. It's easier for him to digest. He's a Lab turning 2 next month and this food is GREAT for him.

  • Premium Food

    By on

    Great food for all four of our fur babies. Three mini doxies and one chihuahua mix. They all love the taste and since being on this food, have had absolutely no stomach issues (been on it for approx one year). Plan to only buy this product as their food.

  • Its the best food we have tried for our dogs

    By on

    We have 2 Dachshunds and the oldest has been on Science diet for over 6 years. She is almost 16. We believe the food has been a big part of their health and we put our other one on it 2yrs ago when we got him. We are believers in its quality nutritional health for our Dachsies!!

  • Mikey loves his "cookies"

    By on

    I have to practically hide the food. You'd think he hadn't been fed in two days. He is definitely a spoiled brat! I don't care, as long as he's happy that's all I need.

  • Great for dog's diet and coat, wish they wouldn't raise the price

    By on

    I switched to this food when my dog got a little pudgy around the middle. Though it took a while, he lost the weight with exercise and controlled diet. I did notice however that this has increased in price (the 33lb bag) by about $4 since October 2016. Same product, so what's up with that Chewy?

  • A Decent Alternative to Prescription Food.

    By on

    We tried this brand over the prescription type. Using the same feeding formula our Beagle, Freckles is about 3 years old, is slowly losing weight. She never turns down any thing resembling food. This food is no exception. She eats it without hesitation. It works. We feed her 1/4 to 1/2 cup with a half a cup of green beans. She appears to be healthy and has a lot of energy.
