Our now 4.5-year-old GSD has struggled with allergies - food and environmental resulting in constant scratching and occasional reflux. We've tried several GSD-appropriate high-quality foods and used an anti-inflammatory medicine, probiotics, and nutritional supplements for that same time with limited success. Since switching him to Hill's Science Diet Adult Sensitive Stomach & Skin over a year ago he's doing great! No more scratching or reflux. We still use supplements (although we did change those to better match the Hills food) and the same anti-inflammatory but Hill's sensitive stomach food has certainly helped things improve dramatically. Every dog is different, and our approach may not be the right one for your pup. But for us and our pup, it's been a very welcome improvement!
I tried so many different expensive diets for my baby. No matter what she ate she had constant runny poops & gas that smelled awful. Her yeast/skin issues were flaring and getting bad also. I finally tried this brand and within a week everything resolved itself! You can tell she feels so much better and relieved!
My german shepherd has had terrible itchy skin. I have been switching foods with no luck then I decided to try this one most recently. He has been on this about a month. I cannot say for sure, but it seems to have helped him. I also have him on some chewable tablets for itch relief that I mash up in the food but he hates the taste of the chewable tablets so when they are gone I am going to keep trying this food and then I will see if it was the food that helped or the tablets. He seems to like the taste of this food but it is a bit pricey.
I was feeding another sensitive skin/stomach dog food and our boxer kept having tummy issues every 3-4 days with it, the rumblies, runny stool, throwing up occasionally - I switched to this and issues over within 2 days. He loves it and is eager to eat again, and I love the large kibble for his teeth.
I have a pit mix that just turned 2. His whole life, he has struggled with tummy troubles and loose stools. Even trying a variety of foods and supplements from the vet, nothing worked. Eventually I moved and my new vet recommended Hills. Honestly, I was skeptical at first, but what did I have to lose? And how happy I was that we tried it! What an amazing difference it has made! Not only are his stools firm, but even the gas and tummy rumbles are gone! I could not be more pleased. If you are considering it, try it! It just might work for you too!
We had our pyredoodle on exclusive for his whole 8.5 years of life. Month and a half ago, he started getting diarrhea horribly bad and lethargy. We could not figure out what the problem was. We thought rabbit poop, cancer, etc. All came back clear. Turns out the formula changed AGAIN. Poor guy was stuck on the rice and venison only diet. Someone recommended science diet, and we chose the stomach care. It's expensive, but works brilliantly. His diarrhea stopped immediately and his goofy personality returned within 2 days! Highly recommend!
Our German Shepard and Husky mix had mucus covered loose stool that she could not hold. Several tests, scans, and foods later this was finally the solution! She is 100 percent back to normal. She likes it too.
Had my lab on a more expensive food and switched to this after hearing good things. He has been on it for about 30 days and he seems to be scratching and licking less. Fingers crossed!
Food seems to be helping alleviate the digestive issues of my ~6 yr. old shepherd.
My sister-in-law is a vet tech and when we first got our Rottweiler, she immediately recommended this brand. We were kind of hoping this brand wouldn't stick (because it was so pricey lol), but after the many compliments of her coat becoming so shiny/healthy, we can't change!
