Be careful!! Moldy/rotten food

Please be aware that Hill’s Science prescription R/D has mold in it. Several cans have had this so plz go through the can and make sure it’s not moldy before feeding. You would think w it being prescription that you wouldn’t have to worry. This is super expensive so it sucks to have to throw out all these cans of moldy food but I can’t feed it to my pets. Be careful and watch out and don’t trust it just bcz it has a high priced name.

wd healthy food

Received canned food wasn't what was expected, as Vet prefers dry-for teeth, and influence to drink water. Our dog LOVES this food! Even the cat tried to get into the bag!

Doxie Delicious

Our 12 year old Doxie loves his new diet. I was reluctant because he was used to a stew type food. This is a much drier food, but firm enough for him to take his time to actually bite into it rather than just lapping it up. Three months = 2 lbs lost, which is great for his 15 lb body.

We make this into treats - dogs love them

Our vet recommended this food to be made into treats for our husky with a liver issue. You cut the food into bite-size pieces and cook in a 325 oven for about 20 to 30 minutes - MAKE SURE THEY ARE COMPLETELY HARD AND COOKED - otherwise they will mold/grow bacteria very quickly. Very low fat treat that is minimally processed...

Our picky eater!

Molly was using Hill’s dry food, but she decided she wouldn’t eat it. I purchased some of the same Hill’s canned food and I mixed it with the dry. She loves it again!

Great for my senior lady

This food is excellent. One of my miniature long-haired dachshunds is on this food and loves it. She is 15, so maintaining her weight is important. She never refuses to eat it like she has other foods, so that's great. I like that it doesn't have a dog food smell, too.

Pork based diet

Thank goodness, he loves it. When my DoxiePoo became allergic to chicken, we had to switch to a pork based diet and this is it. It's also low fat so he could shed a few pounds. We all like it.
