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.

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.

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.

Great dog food, even if pricey

I started all my dogs on this brand last year. Since then, their coats seem softer and shinier and they all seem to be more energetic. I just got a puppy and I am thrilled to give this to her for her entire life.

Our Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier puppy had the ""Gulpies" and "Lick Fit" in his 4th month. By combining the canned food of Hill's Science Diet, the Kibble version soaked in warm water before serving, and placing it in a slow feeder raised dog bowl, he is doing well No more issues. I'd never heard of this condition and this is my second Wheatie. It's awful, and can result in bloat. Bad bad bad. This is Excellent

New pup loves it!

My new puppy was sent home with a quality dry dog food from my breeder. I practically had to hand feed him. He devours the Hills Puppy Small Bites! I thinks he loves the combo tiny and tasty kibble.

Our Puppy Loves It!

We recently got our puppy and had her on PawTree chicken & oat. After seeing the veterinarian, she suggested incorporating this brand for her to get some grain into her diet as well. We were told that grains are important for heart development (I always thought they were bad fillers). So we mix the two fifty/ fifty now and she LOVES this new flavor!

My dog generally likes this food. I have fed this to all the dogs I have owned. This Cavapoo is a little finicky her taste for it changes daily

Growing puppy

I have a lab mix puppy. She’s been growing steadily on Hill Science. She much prefers chicken flavor over lamb. The small bites are easier for her as she’s teething. Chewy’s prices are way better than Petco’s.

Excellent price, fast delivery

Delivered within days, price far better than I can get locally - and my "growing puppy" goes through a LOT of puppy bites!

good stuff!!

Nina cleared her bowl every meal but as a Lab quickly outgrew the bite size. We are changing to the standard puppy chunks at 10 weeks

Bully loves Chewy

My Bully boy just loves his delicious chicken and brown rice biscuits. He ignores me when he gets fed his biscuits.
