The Science Diet® Puppy Large Breed kibble is the ticket to seventh heaven for our puppy Victoria. Just the sound of us opening the package and scooping good cupfuls of the kibble brings Victoria running from whether she is, sit down, wag her tail, and wait for us to finish serving her. She sits there with this expectant gleam in her eyes, cocking her head to the side, as the aroma of croquettes and the yogurt & Puppy Gourmet Chicken Entrée canned food we mix in fills the kitchen. Victoria is very obedient and waits for us to place the dish on the ground, her tail wagging harder and harder as she tries to sit still. Once we tell her to stand up, she enjoys her meal fully, carefully selecting small chunks of kibble and chewing them slowly, savoring. She takes her time, but does she enjoy it, the steady crunching of the kibble in her mouth a good indication. In the space of 5 minutes, the meal is gone, and she often sits there, looking at us with these eyes that say "Can you give me more, this is good!" We often catch her sniffing behind the pantry door, where the Science Diet chow is stored. Talk about a journey to a healthy paradise!

It's a widely known fact that dogs are Carnivores. Why then is the majority of the ingredients in this food corn?? The first ingredient in a quality food should always be a protein of some sort, and preferably the meal of the protein; chicken meal, lamb meal, etc., not the meat itself as in processing it loses a lot of protein. The first ingredient in this food is Ground corn, the next chicken by product meal, the next corn gluten, then liver flavor ??? What does that mean flavor? Corn is hard to digest and is an allergen. It causes skin allergies, hot spots, paw biting, etc. And the price is as high as a quality food such as Wellness, Blue, etc. that have no corn or fillers. If Science Diet wants to compete in the market of quality foods, they should look at the competition and revamp their formula. Those that use this food and like it should just feed your dogs Puppy Chow for half the price.

Great Start to a Healthy Life

By crystalk101

from Iowa, United States

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food:

We have had great success with this food for our puppy. We have a chocolate lab and she really loves the taste. This food gives her the nutrition she needs to maintain her active puppy lifestyle. This food also keeps her coat shiny and soft. When she first started this food at 8 weeks, she did have trouble with the large size of the kibble. For about a month we had to switch her to the standard puppy version. After that she now handles the larger pieces in the Large Breed Puppy just fine. We look forward to continuing her on Hill's products.

One Star because...Very Large, and extremely hard!

By Big Red the Mastiff

from Texas, United States

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food:

However... I give the ingredient 100 stars after conducting research and understanding my puppy's nutritional needs. Unfortunately this perfect ingredient is way to large and hard for my 4 month old English Mastiff. My recommendation to SD is to decrease the size, and develop a texture to make more desirable and comfortable for the puppy, as well as to increase sales. My Vet recommended switching my Mastiff to SD from NutriSource, but unfortunately he can't even chew it. It took exactly 20 minutes to attempt to get through one piece after he tried several. I soaked a few in water and he still couldn't eat the kibble. I was even unable to break the MASSIVE kibble by hand dry nor wet. I am very disappointed that such great ingredient can't even be eaten. After my experience I contacted SD and was assisted by a very professional, experienced, concerned, and helpful. Thank you

HUGE VERY HARD KIBBLE

By NeedSmallerKibble

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food:

My German Shepherd 12 week old puppy cannot begin to chew this big hard kibble! I have to soak it an hour bf feed times and it's getting burdonsome. I switched to a different brand that has a small, enjoyable kibble. My adult lab's kibble is half this size.

Perfect switch

By jason

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Puppy Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food:

We have a one year old male "puppy" boxer, during our last vet visit I explained that I was concerned with his lack of proper weight. She asked what food we were feeding and then suggested that we switch to Science Diet's puppy formula. Once we switched, we noticed an almost immediate weight improvement. I'm happy to report that he has filled out very well and his weight has increased.
