REVIEW: Hill's Ideal Balance Crafted Canned Dog Food

Disclosure: Chewy.com sent a case of Hill's Ideal Balance canned dog food to Lapdog Creations, free of charge for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

Not only were the Lapdogs extra excited about this month's Chewy review item, their Mama was too! We picked Hill's Ideal Balance Crafted Canned Dog Food this month for a couple of reasons... 1) I'm always looking for great canned foods to use as a mix-in with their kibble and 2)You may have noticed that we are currently participating in a Hill's Ideal Balance Crafted campaign with BlogPaws, so this seemed like an obvious choice to make.  We've already posted twice about the new line (in April and in May) and have two more posts coming up (June and July), so stay tuned to learn more. 

Hill's Idea Balance Crafted canned is currently available in three recipes - Simmered Chicken Stew with Quinoa, Shredded Beef Stew, and Braised Salmon Medley with Quinoa.  We received the chicken recipe for our review.   

While their Mama has been busy telling the world about the new Hill's Ideal Balance Crafted food, Teutul and Sophie were both very eager to eat it! 

My first thought when I opened the can?  This stuff looks amazing... and where's the human version?  If you feed canned dog food, you know that sometimes you open that can and can only guess what's in it.  With the Ideal Balance Crafted, there's no guessing - you can see and easily identify the ingredients.  Shredded natural chicken, peas, carrots, potatoes, spinach, quinoa... all in a delicious smelling gravy.

Ideal Balance Crafted is truly just like homemade, without the hassle!  Slow cooked in small batches, in the USA without corn, wheat or soy. It is also free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives, as well as poultry by-product meal. If I had the time, energy and knowledge to cook for my dogs, this is exactly what I would envision. Since I don't have all that extra time on my hands, nor a pet nutrition degree, I am thankful to Hill's for making it easy to feed my pack wholesome food.

Both Teutul and Sophie thought the chicken stew was amazing... shhh, don't tell them it wasn't leftovers from Mommy & Daddy's dinner!  Because Ideal Balance Crafted is not recommended for puppies, Penny has not had the pleasure of trying it yet*. I think Teutul was a little too excited about the fact that she can't share it...

That looks like something my girls would like. Like you, I use toppers for their kibble.

I feed my dog Ideal Balance. I'll have to check out the braised salmon.
