Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

I have purchased Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food couple years ago as an alternative to my regular dog food. I like the idea of a different flavor for the dog food. Also I liked that this dog food is made out of natural ingredients. I think it is very important as many generic dog foods have too many preservatives. My dog is a small mixed breed dog and very active. He liked the Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food right away. He is not too picky but sometimes he would refuse to eat. This was not the case. I also noticed that he has more energy and feels good when he eats Hill's Science Diet Nature's. I would take it as an indicator that the food is good. I would add that the price of the Hill's Science Diet Nature's is a little high, but it totally worth it because in the long run, it keeps dog healthy.

Good for sensitive stomachs.

By 

from Kansas

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

I have an older dog who has developed a sensitive stomach and some digestive issues as he has aged. A friend suggested I try Hill's Science Diet Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food because it is what she switched her older dog to. My dog not only loves the taste of this food but it was not rough on his stomach.

My dog instantly liked the food and gobbled it up. It was nice to see he was not in any stomach discomfort like he usually was following a meal. Later on when he went out to go to the bathroom there was no diarrhea like there often times was. I continued to feed him this food and his stomach problems significantly improved.

I would highly recommend this for dogs with sensitive stomachs or digestive tracks.

Quality of Ingredients
Hill's Science has much higher quality ingredients than most dry dog foods. There are far less chemicals and additives.

Flavor Selection
I am pretty sure there were other flavors available but my dog loved the Lamb and Brown rice, so I continued to buy it.

It was better than most of the supermarket brands.

By 

from West Virginia

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

My small dog had digestive issues from the moment we adopted him. He would have trouble eating larger pieces of food and when he ate, his bathroom habits were not normal. I tried several foods but nothing really helped. Most supermarket brands seemed to irritate his colon even more.

I tried this particular brand and it seemed to help a little bit. I know it's disgusting but my little Dachshund would either have very hard movements or very liquid movements when he went to the bathroom. After trying this food, first of all he seemed to really like their lamb flavor and formula and second of all, his movements seemed less painful for him. They were still a bit soft and not quite right but he didn't struggle for long periods of time with constipation like he had with other foods.

The ingredients in this are okay but there are some things that I just don't see the point of being in my dogs food. I feel like there's too much emphasis on vegetables and grains in their brand of food. The meat contents, or rather protein contents, in this food are good though.

Quality of Ingredients
It does have a good bit of protein in it but I feel as if there's still too much grain and vegetables in this particular brand. My dog tolerated it okay but I've switched brands.

Flavor Selection
My dog really enjoyed the food. He would eat every bite of his meal but I feel like there's not enough meats in this and too much emphasis on the grains and veggies. I think they need more meat options.

Lamb and Brown Rice dog food

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

Excellent dog food.

Quality of Ingredients
I find it really healthy that the ingredients include such high amounts of proteins to help with the building and endurance of my dog's muscles helping him to stay in the absolute best shape possible for the most formative years of his life. I also liked the concept of the brown rice being included in it as well as I had not previously seen many dog foods that have used this ingredient in their products. Personally I do not like to feed my dog many dog foods containing ingredients that I myself would not actually eat. Therefore I saw that lamb and brown rice were actually quite healthy choices for my dog's diet. I find that this specific blend of ingredients and the quality that they contain are really adaptable and necessary tools in building up a strong dog with an active fitness routine. It's portions are hearty enough for him to be very active without burning much more than he is taking in which helps keep him full and focused during training.

Perfect Blend!

By 

from Ohio

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

My dogs love the lamb and brown rice flavor of the Science Diet Dog food. The little bites are the perfect size morsel for smaller dog breeds like mine at home! It's a well-balanced dog food that is pretty affordable and dogs really go crazy for the natural lamb and brown rice flavor. If you have a small breed friend, you should definitelypick up a bag of Scient Diet at your next trip to the petstore - they'll thank you for it!

Quality of Ingredients
I think thatScience Diet lamb and rice little bites dry dog food is made with extremely high quality ingredients. My dogs really love the way it tastes and have nevr had any problems with digestion after eating the food. However, there are several animal by-products listed on the back panel in the ingredients section of the food. Other than the by-products in the product, I would say that Science Diet with Rice and Lamb is overall a highly nutritious and relatively affordable dog food. Science Diet is ideal for smaller breeds and puppies but is also great for larger dogs, too!

Flavor Selection
All three of my dogs love the lamb and rice flavor, it is their favorite dry dog food and they all love the flavor.

Hills Science Diet Lamb and Brown Rice: Buy it Today!

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

Some dog foods are made with so many questionable ingredients, they really aren’t fit for a dog or any other animal, for that matter. But there are some very good brands out there and one manufacturer I can count on for making good dog food is Hill’s. My dogs have enjoyed several Hill’s brands and one they and I like is Hill’s Science Diet Nature’s Best Lamb and Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food.

Dog Food Facts and Figures:

Hill’s Science Diet Nature’s Best Lamb and Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food is a quality dog food manufactured with more real meat and fewer fillers compared to other brands. The kibbles are bite- sized and the food can be served to any adult dog and any breed.

With Hill’s Science Diet Nature’s Best Lamb and Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food, my dog has found a food that he likes quite well that is also owner- approved. Some of the other expensive dog foods are rather bland in taste and I have to resort to different tricks to get my dog to eat. There is no such problem with this dog food. My dog eats it readily, with no need to persuade.

Hill’s Science Diet Nature’s Best Lamb and Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food disadvantages are few but they would include the difficulty in finding the food and the price. You need to make a special trip to a pet store to find this dog food and even then, there is a chance they will not carry this specific style of Hill’s. And, of course, there is the price which is significantly higher than most all grocery store dog foods.

My Bottom Line:

My bottom line with Hill’s Science Diet Nature’s Best Lamb and Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food is that it’s a very good dog food and one worth seeking out. The price might be high, but the quality and other factors make it money well spent.

Quality of Ingredients
The ingredients used for this dog food are not A+ in quality, but they are above average.

Nature's Best Really Is...THE BEST

By 

from Port Charlotte, FL

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

I have 4 Chihuahuas and a Xolo, and am currently feeding them Nature's Best Small Bites, either lamb and rice or chicken and rice.  When one of my Chihuahuas was a puppy, she had colitis and needed medication.  I was given a Science Diet Intestinal Diet from the vet.  It didn't do one thing for the colitis.  I purchased numerous high end dog foods in an attempt to find something palateable and easily digested to help with the colitis.  I finally tried Nature's Best.  Since switching more than 2 years ago, the colitis has disappeared.  I also have noticed the condition of my dog's coats is excellent, full, soft and very shiney.  I highly recommend trying this food, I'm glad I did.

GREAT!

By 

from Pleasant Grove, UT

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

I only feed my dog science diet food. I have 2 chihuahua's and are both very healthy due to this food. The food is expensive but is something that I am willing to spluge on. My dogs fur is shiny and heathly and do not have any health problems. They enjoy the food and I have never had any problems with it. I wish it was cheaper but you pay for the quality. I also wish I could find this at more stores and that they had coupons more available with it. I wish they made more sizes in the bags. I can't go through a big bag and by time I get to the bottom it doesn't seem very fresh. I love that you can buy it the actually food in smaller kernals. My little dogs would have a hard time eating the bigger pieces. I think this is a great product and would reccomend to everyone I know. Iw ould never switch off this because of how healthy my dogs are. Great product!

great choice for your dog

By 

from Canyon Country, CA

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

I feed **Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Rice Small Bites Dog Food **and mix with other Hill's Science Diet Dry Dog Food.  SInce this is small bites, I mix with regular size food.  And my dog seems to like the different size and texture.  I have never eaten those dog food, I have no idea if there is any taste difference (I hope there is), but I change up with other kind of taste, such as beef taste.  I alternate lamb, chicken and beef every time the bag gets empty. **Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Rice Small Bites Dog Food **is also pricy along with other Hills' Science Diet Dry Dog Food, but again, I think it is better for your dog in a long run.  If you only feed the cheap dog food long time, all the preservatives and other chemical will pile up inside of your dog's body and you will ended up to take your dog to the vet.  I believe Hill's Science Diet dog food can prevent this.  At least I hope so.

Our dog loves this food!

By 

from Parkton, NC

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Lamb & Brown Rice Small Bites Dog Food:

We recently adopted a wonderful dog named Sandy from our local animal shelter. Sandy is a mixed breed with golden retriever qualities. The animal shelter had been giving Sandy the "Hills Science Diet Natures Best" dog food and we wanted to continue her nutrition care and not upset her stomach so we purchased this as well. The local area vet that works with the animal shelter also highly recommended this food to the owners adopting dogs. Sandy loves this food and eats it easily. Sandy has adjusted well to life with us and her coat is bright and shiny and she has lots of energy to enjoy the freedom of our ten acres. I would recommend Hills Sciene Diet Nature's Best dog food because it tastes great to the dog and it offers great nutritional value. We are pleased with Sandy's coat and energy levels as well as her readiness to eat this food. I love making Sandy happy because she is a part of our family!
