Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 86 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great service Our vet recommended Science Diet in the late 1980's when we got our first Sheltie. I've had 4 shelties that lived to be 12 1/2 and older and I believe it was the Science Diet that kept them healthy. My little Scooter and Paisley love the food and can't wait until eating time. November 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! Just what we use and need Again, just what I was looking for! Love Science Diet and Chicken Nibbles! November 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is liked Our dogs love this item. They enjoy the small bits and helps keep their weight down to normal November 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love Thank you for offering delivery on this product. I love that I don't have to go to Petsmart ever again. November 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food dogs love it. Great food dogs love it and it helps them maintain weight. November 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by If your dog had pancreatitis, this is a good low fat dog food. My dog is healthy and loves it I have a seven pound miniature dachshund who gets this food because it is low fat. She had pancreatitis and was extremely ill. Following her illness, but a short while later, the vet said we could resume her regular food slowly but she became ill again. At that point we were told a low fat diet was going to be needed for the rest of her life. Hills website made it easy to check the fat content of each of their dog food product. The Adult Light Diet is about the lowest fat content that I could find. I am very thankful for the website information. It was very clear and in more detail than other sites I reviewed. My little Dachsie did very well on this food. It is one year since she had the problem with pancreatitis and no recurrence of her illness on this food. She is now healthy and energetic and has a beautiful coat. She likes the food too. As a treat, and to maintain the low fat theme, she gets a heaping teaspoon scoop of canned pumpkin with her morning meal (no pumpkin with evening meal). Cheerios are her treats. This detailed information is provided as this problem of pancreatitis is not so uncommon and it worked for us. The small bites size of the pieces is about 1/4 inch spherical. The regular sized pieces is about 1/2 inch diameter and 3/8 inch height (cylinder shaped). I like the regular sized pieces for my dog as she chews each one. The small bites are too small and she gobbles them down too fast. She actually started choking on the smaller stuff as she was pigging out and eating too fast. Since I have other dachshunds, this encourages competitive speed eating. However, I made a mistake and ordered the small bites for her. Till this bag is finished, she will get large rocks in her bowl and will have to navigate around them to eat her food. It will slows her piggish consumption while eating. Chewy offered great service and fast shipping. November 7, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tasty Diet and it works We feed this to our voracious Maltese for her evening meal and it has helped to keep off the unwanted extra pound and 1/2 that she was carrying around before we found this food. She likes it too.! September 16, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by I have been using this brand for years! I have been feeding this exact food to my dogs for years. Ever since I had a diabetic Dog that needed to drop some weight. It has always kept them at a nice decent weight! They always eat their share and I don't hear any complaints! Lol! July 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have used Hill's Science Diet for a long time. They have all reached 15 years of age or older. This is the first time I've used Chewy.com. Had not heard of it before. Good prices and fast service. I will be using them from now on. July 23, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy Dog Food I have a small dog who loves the smaller bites of food. Hills Science Diet Food is good quality dog food at reasonable prices. I alternate this dry food with the canned soft food of the same brand. It maintains my dogs weight at a healthy level. July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by hills easy to order, have a very good selection. prompt shipping, would recommend to anyone....hassle free experience.. July 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by bag this was my first time at chewy. good fast shipping, but the bag had tape on it. that kinda bugged me, but felt, looked and smell fresh, I wouldn't buy a bag like that at a store, so I don't expect that. June 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! Chewy had super fast free shipping! Will order again! June 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good... my Pomeranian is a bit over weight and i tried different foods, he would pick and chose the kibbles from the bowl but so far with this food he is eating it all up, fingers crossed that the weight will start coming off! June 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs eat it! Got 2 picky eaters but they both can agree on this dry food! June 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs love this food. We have a 7 year old dog and a 2 year old dog, so I mix the small bite food with the larger kibble and our dogs go after it! The combo suits both dog palates and we never have trouble getting them to eat any more. May 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy Food for Obese Dog This is a great food for my little fat beagle I have that is a very easy keeper. I have been able to drop some weight off her and keep her healthy at the same time. Her coat is pretty with a shine and she as lots of energy. May 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Recommend for the Diabetic Dog! If you have a diabetic dog like us then this is the right dry for you that is "not vet buy from only"! This has more fiber in it then "those brands" and it is easier to eat for all types of dogs. It does last longer too as far as how often you have to buy it. At least for me it does. You have to find your balance of how much to give your dog due to weight and size plus if you add anything else to it. But, once you get the just of it things move right a long at eating time. One thing since this is a high fiber kibble you may want to up the going out to potty factor as well until his system gets use to it and you get use to that part as well. They will need more outdoor time. February 11, 2015
