  • Lite food for older dogs

    By on

    We have been using lite small bites for our 9 year old toy fox terrier, it seems to have helped to keep her weight under control and she likes the taste of the product.I would recommend this family of products (hills science lite little bites ). We also impressed by Chewy's ease of purchasing & fast shipment & cost savings over cost for food from vet's office & feed store is a nice bonus these day's of fixed incomes.

  • Really Small...

    By on

    I actually should pay more attention to what I purchase, our dog is large and this kibble is really, really small. I'm not sure, but I think Milo swallows it whole. It is the same recipe as the other size, but it is for a much smaller dog. Milo doesn't complain and I'm not either, just be sure which bag you buy. Chewy.com has such a huge selection, sometimes it can be tricky if you're not on top of things. Thanks Chewy, you guys are awesome!!

  • Different brand of dogfood for my finicky Papillion

    By on

    I ordered the Science Diet, Adult light small bites dry dog food for my finicky eater, Papillion breed. He would not touch this brand at all. He sniffed it and walked away. I am at my wit's end what to get him that he will eat. I have tried many, many different brands, dry and canned, with different ingredients and main meats, he will not eat 99% of what I buy. I have tried making my own dog food with chicken or beef with small size carrots, green beans in it, he will eat that a few times and then will not eat even home made. HELP ME......

  • Just right for my dog!

    By on

    This dog food is perfect for my older lab. The small bites are easier for her since her teeth aren't as healthy as they used to be. The light food helps her weight stay under control. Having the food delivered to my house makes it easier for me!

  • great value!

    By on

    Healthy dog food for a great price! I needed to find less expensive option for my diabetic dog, I buy Hill's prescription diabetic canned dog food for her, and I supplement her with dry dog food, Hill's Light small bites Dry Food is almost half the price of the prescription dry food, and still a very healthy option.

  • Very pleased

    By on

    We are so pleased with this dogfood. We switched from another brand because we needed to find one that would help our 2 Shelties shed a few pounds. They love it and the small kibble is perfect for aging pets that have difficulty with regular size food. Highly recommended by us and our Shelties.

  • Food & Service

    By on

    We love Hill's Science Diet Light Adult Small Bites! When we rescued our Australian Shepherd he was overweight so the vet put him on a diet with this food and he loves it. I hate that it's so expensive, but thanks to Chewy we got two bags for basically the price of one at the store.

  • Yummy teeny tiny kibbles

    By on

    At first I thought I ordered bird food because the kibbles are so tiny. Anyway I switched the puppy food to the adult food for my 1+ year old beagle mix. She seems to enjoy it. She eats a lot so with this formula I can give her a little more food without having to worry about her weight.
