Hill's Science Diet Advanced Fitness Lamb Meal and Rice Large Breed Adult Dog Food
I know this is an old thread but I had to post my comment. My family had Chow Chow dogs since 1980. Most have always lived to around the 10 year mark. My last Chow lived to be 15 years old. She only ate Science Diet Lamb and Rice food. I believed what the Vet told me and used it. Now I am reading this thread on how this food is crap and so forth. But my last Chow never looked her age, was playful and acted like a puppy until this year. Ya’ll can believe what you want to but with the long life of my Chow, I am using it on her replacement. Thanks

Our Staffordshire Terrier is still being fed the Prescription Diet Metabolic Lamb and Rice Formula. Prior to this, he had been on the Metabolic Chicken Formula dry food, but we switched him due to some sensitivities to the chicken that were skin related. The chicken came in a larger kibble, and offered a more satisfying crunch. The lamb formula is a much smaller kibble, and he often times doesn't chew his food well. I have spoken to the Hills Science Diet folks and it doesn't sound like a larger lamb based kibble is in the cards for now. We do allow him some fresh string beans as a treat, but nothing else. He is fed twice a day and continues to maintain his recommended weight. There were several points that I wanted to bring up, in hopes of helping other dog owners. The food seemed very expensive to us in the beginning. Had we followed the feeding guidelines on the bag, it would have been not only astronomical, but he would have been overfed. If you are looking to help your dog lose weight, it is important to know what his recommended caloric intake is per day, based on your vet's assessment. Once you have that number, you can do the math and figure out what it is appropriate for your animal. The other point I would like to bring up is that our dog seemed to be hungry even after his meal, and would basically pick up his bowl and toss it as in a tantrum. We ended up playing around with the amounts we were feeding him, and found that, if we increased his morning feeding, he was not seeming as hungry at dinner. This is working. He gets 1 1/2 cups of food in the morning, and 1 1/8 cups of food at dinner. Based on these amounts, he is getting his appropriate amount of calories, and, although he his system works like clockwork and he knows exactly when it is 5 PM and time for dinner, he is satisfied. It took us several months to cost out the price of his old food versus the Science Diet food. We determined that, once the third bag of Science Diet food had been purchased, we had started seeing a savings. This food has been a blessing, and although it took some time, the benefits have been great. We have just started our younger dog, a pit bull terrier, on the Metabolic Chicken Weight Management/Mobility food, as she has had two CCL replacement surgeries in the past year. Will update on that later.
