Dog doesn’t like it

My dog has a history of pancreatitis, so unfortunately I can’t feed her just any dog food. We tried the hills low-fat prescription dry food and she hated it. Right now she’s on the Hill’s prescription Z/D canned food, which is very expensive for me. I’ve tried twice (including this food) to transition her over to a lower fat dry food because it’s cheaper, but she always reaches a point in the transition where she refuses to eat it unless I go back to the original food. She does not like this food at all, I’ve only gotten up to adding 1 tablespoon (soaked and/or microwaved) into her original food, and she just won’t eat any of it, even with chicken breast on top. I tried to give her a piece of the soaked food (not microwaved) tonight, but I don’t even think she recognized it as food, because she just ignored it until I squished it in my fingers to release some more of the smell. I don’t blame her to be honest, this food has the least “smell” of any dog food I’ve ever smelled, and it probably has very little flavor too. I wish that low-fat/light dog foods had more strong flavor/smell to make them more appealing.

Healthy weight

My pomeranian is over weight, I put her on this about a month ago. She seems to like it and has lost about 4 lbs. I didn't give 5 stars because of the price, don't know why diet foods are so much more expensive? Chewy was great as usual.

Every thing about this order was great. Hills produces great items. Chewy is a great company to order from. And FedEx does a great job shipping!

I wouldn’t buy this

My dog eats literally anything but he hated this food. It also gave him diarrhea. I understand that this is a low calorie/ high fiber food but we went through a full week of waking up to little accidents around the house. It wasn’t until we got him a different type of food that he stopped that behavior.

Good food

I bought this to supplement food with some fiber and it worked for my Yorkie, and he likes it.

My dog loves this food!!!!

He can't wait to eat, so he tries to get me to feed him earlier than normal because he just can't wait.

Science Diet dry food for small dogs

My dogs love it and the fat content is lower than just about all other dry foods I could find. This was recommended by my vet for my older dog, but it's good to keep the weight down on my dachshund too.
