How to switch to different food, percentage to old & new?
Answer by ChewyAug 22, 2018
This varies depending on the individual dog. It could take 5-7 days. For example: Day 1-2: 25% New / 75% old Day 3-4: 50% New / 50% old Day 5-6: 75% New / 25% old Day 7: 100% If your dog is experiencing upset through the transition, then you can lessen the ratio as you see fit.

Does science diet puppy contain chicken by products?
Answer by ChewyMay 29, 2020
The Hill's Science Diet Puppy Healthy Development Small Bites Dry Dog Food does not contain chicken-by-products.

We have a puppy who is about 5 pounds and close to 4 months old. We have her now on Small paws, but since she is bigger now want to go with the next bigger size kibble. Are the ingredients the same?
Answer by ChewyDec 03, 2019
At this time, Hill's Science Diet offers (3) three puppy formulas that would be suitable for a small breed puppy. Each of the formulas has chicken as it's main protein, however the rest of the ingredients may differ between them. The Puppy Health Development Small Bites has a kibble size of 7.3 x 4.5 millimeters (mm), the Puppy Small Paws is 7.5 x 4.5 mm, and the regular Puppy recipe is 10 x 4 mm.

Can large breed puppies eat this?
Answer by ChewyMay 25, 2020
Animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures substantiate that Hill's Science Diet Puppy Small Bites Chicken & Barley Recipe Dog Food provides complete and balanced nutrition for growing puppies and gestating or lactating adult female dogs.

perfect for my pup

The order arrived on time, it is much easier for my puppy to digest and he seems to love it. It was not difficult for him to change with the previous one that we gave him. We feel safe with the food we are giving our puppy since it is recommended by his veterinarian.

Open when received

Upon receipt this bag of food has a slit in it to where the food is coming out of bag. It appears a box cutter slipped when opening the master case?!

Excellent for Mini Dachshund Pup!

Recommended by 2 vets because it's important for the pup to have something that is NOT grain-free. Perfect size bites for my little mini wirehaired dachshund, Fritz. He can enjoy this until he's age 1.

love but small bag size

I love this dog food and so do my dogs, I just wish it was sold in a bigger 30lb bag! Now that we got a Goldendoodle he eats more than my dachshund so we’re going thru it a lot quicker! No complaints on the food just wish it was a bigger size bag!!

SMALL Bites Dog Food

After doing some (okay... a lot) research I decided to give Hill's Science Diet a try. It gets excellent reviews and was recommended by both the breeder and vet. This small bites it the perfect size for our little rat terrier puppy. Also, the food is NOT grain free which is actually causing numerous health problems even though its the fad diet. Excellent food, affordable price and Evie loves her food!! THANK YOU, CHEWY FOR THE FAST DELIVERY!

perfectly sized kibbles

Our little pup is a chow hound and will eat anything but he literally wags his tail and jumps up and down at meal times. The kibbles are small and easy for him to eat.
