  • Great weight management choice

    By on

    This was always the 2nd choice for my 2 dogs, for weight management food. I have given it to them before, but I think the large pieces are bothering my Basset Hound. He will eat anything, and as long as it is mixed with a smaller piece kibble, he's fine. He isn't a small breed, so I wish there were a medium kibble for weight management I guess.

    My120lb 14 year old golden retriever has hip problems and could hardly get up. I switched him over and he is down to 85lbs. He acts young again and had no digestive problems switching his food!

  • Recommendation

    By on

    I used Science Diet "Perfect Weight" as recommended by my vet to help my chubby dogs get down to a good weight. One dog is a 4 year old female pyrenees with a hip problem. The other dog is a 7 year old Ovcharka and we don't want him to develop arthritis. Once they got to the weight she wanted them, she recommended the "Adult Light" to help maintain that weight. It seems to be working well for them.

  • Simply didn't work for my dog

    By on

    I realize every dog is different. So this review pertains to my dog. The food was to be a transition from a high fiber prescription food, to a high fiber non-prescrition food. After several weeks of attempting to integrate this food into his diet, he kept having setbacks (diagnosed with fiber related Colitis). So, when we went backt to soley using Hill's W/D prescription food, he cleared right up. The vet suggested we discontinue the Hill's Science Diet.

  • Great product

    By on

    We switched our dog over to Science Diet a couple of years ago and he loves it. This food seems to keep him in great shape and (apologies if this is tmi) his poops are consistently solid and easy to bag up. Our dog is large (~65 pounds) and he has a lot easier time eating the large bites than the small ones. We highly recommend this product!

  • Just What Zoey Needs

    By on

    We buy Science Diet Light for our special needs dog, Zoey. She is diabetic and was on a food that was harmful for her health. With this, she has lost weight, as suggested by our vet, and her glucose levels are much more stable. It's such a great food for Zoey, my senior Aussie, Teddy, gets it too.

    I have tried other foods on my dog for weight loss and did not work. Hills Science Diet Light Dry Dog Food works great. My Rango saw his doctor and he had lost 5 of the 7 pounds he needed to lose in just a couple of weeks. My dog likes the food, good price. We are happy.
