My dog loves BzzAgent, too!

A few weeks ago, BzzAgent invited me to participate in a BzzCampaign for Hill's Science Diet Small & Toy Breed dog food. I have a miniature daschund/chihuhua mix (a "chiweenie") named Maddie who is almost two years old. Before being invited to the campaign, I'd heard good things about Hill's Science Diet, but I always dismissed it as being "too expensive." (The 4.5 lb bags run in the $10-12 range.)

When I went to PetSmart, they were out of the regular adult variety. Since I was eager to try out this product and wasn't sure when I'd make it back to that part of town, I decided on the "light" version. I was curious to see if Maddie would actually like it. When it comes to human foods, my dogs will gladly scarf down anything she can get her mouth on, but where dog food is concerned, she''s really picky!

The last time we switched foods, our vet recommended mixing a small amount of new food with the old instead of just springing the new stuff on her. So that's what I did with this Hill's Science Diet food. While she was sniffing around her bowl and giving me a questioning "what-did-you-do-to-my-food" look, I headed to another part of the house to take care of a few things. I was feeling pretty sure I would return to find her food bowl completely untouched.

When I came back to the kithcen, I found this:

Maddie was picking out the pieces of Hill's food and spitting any old food she got onto our floor. It was pretty funny! I guess this picture speaks for itself. Clearly, she's a fan of Hill's Science Diet Small & Toy Breed Dog Food.

Here's what I like about this product from a "human" perspective:
- The bag (at least the 4.5 lb bag) is re-sealable. I'm a sucker for added convenience.
- My dog loves it, and it's actually good for her.
- Hill's is a trusted name in pet food and one that I often hear from my veterinarian.
- It doesn't have an overwhelming dog food smell.
- It's really healthy for my dog to eat.

If you're curious, I do plan on buying more of this food in the future. Even though it costs a little more than I've been buying Maddie, I think's worth it.

(I received a free item coupon from BzzAgent to try this product out. I didn't receive any compensation to share my opinion. To learn more about BzzAgent, check out this post.)
