I went to Petco a few weeks ago and noticed that there was a new Hill’s Science Diet dog food variety available called Grain Free. My dog eats Hill’s Science Diet normally because it’s what our veterinarian recommends and it’s got a good nutritional makeup. So this new Grain Free variety was interesting because I had never heard of “grain free” dog food before. I wondered if it was just for dogs with a wheat allergy or some other dietary restrictions. I perused the package but left the store without buying it.
Lucky for me i’m a BzzAgent and I love getting to test out new products. So does my dog 🙂 And later that same week BzzAgent emailed me and invited me to participate in their new campaign for Hill’s Science Diet Ideal Balance Grain Free. How timely!
BzzAgent sent me a free bag of the Ideal Balance Grain Free from Pet Food Direct which arrived in just one day. Great delivery speed! I started mixing in the new Ideal Balance Grain Free with my dog’s regular Hill’s Science Diet food. My dog Julius is a picky eater and if he doesn’t like something he just leaves it in the bowl. But he seemed to love the new food! He ate it all right up. My Dad fed him one night when I was at class and just gave him his old food and Julius looked at him as if to say “Where’s the Grain Free?” He clearly prefers it which is great since I hate to see him not finish his food. Also, Julius has a sensitive stomach and can get sick easily so I am careful with what I feed him.
So why Grain Free? Well, it’s specially formulated to be easier to digest for dogs with sensitive stomachs. It has chicken as the first ingredient, followed by fruits and veggies. The food has no corn, artificial preservatives, or artificial colors. And the food is formulated to improve your dog’s coat and skin. And since Hill’s Science Diet is the #1 veterinarian recommended brand, I felt good about giving it to my dog.
My dog loves the new Ideal Balance Grain Free food and now will only grudgingly eat his old food! Looks like it’s time for another trip to Petco to get more. There’s a happy pup!
