Review of Hill's Science Plan Dog food.

Today is an exciting day. You may know I have two dogs. They are the apple of my eye. I love them more than most humans and it is safe to say I trust their judgement more than my own sometimes. So when they are offered items to review. You know I am more excited than normal. 

A bit about me as a dog owner. I am very overprotective and maybe a bit of a worrier. I will scrutinise dog food packages to make sure there is nothing bad in them. Yes, I am that person but only for my dogs. My dogs are how would you put it? Completely spoiled. I am not ashamed to say I tuck them in every night with a blanket. My life revolves about making sure that are happy. Is there such a thing as a crazy dog lady. I am it and proud. 


First up we have the oldest. Meet Millie. She is a 7-year-old Springador. She likes to swim and bog dive.  The dirtier she is the happier she is. We have had her since she was 18 months. She is a funny creature. She likes certain people and couldn't care less about others. She spends 98% on her life within touching distance of me.  She also suffers from mild hip dysplasia. 

What millie is reviewing today.

Millies is advancing in her years. She wouldnt use the word mature more worldly but we will go with mature. She needs extra care and attention due to her hip issues and does suffer from seasonal allergies too.

This could not be more perfect for millie. She loves the taste of it. 

Now if you are a dog owner you will know what I am talking about but if you are not feel free to skip the next bit. 
Millie is that weird dog who will some times spit out the odd biscuit in her food. There is no reason I can find for this but she does it. But not with this food she devowed it. Like it was the best thing to pass her lips. She will even beg for the biscuits and not her treats. This has never in her life happened. NEVER. I can only say she must love them. 

She is already looking leaner and her coat is looking better and shiny. This food is crammed packed with all the best nutrients to help millie in her advancing years.

I was told by our vet that the easy way to identify good quality dry dog biscuits is when you add water. High-quality biscuits will not absorb the water and will stay crunchy. These no not absorb the water and stay firm. This is just a little trick I thought you should know. 

Ok on to my baby boy. 

Meet Mylo He is 5 years old and a Dalmatian But I am guessing you guessed that. Mylo loves to go biking with us he will happily run for miles beside our bikes.  In fact, this is what he lives for that and cuddles. He idolises his sister and would do anything for her. He will follow her to the end of the earth. This includes bog diving until he is completely covered in mud. He is the softest most sensitive dog you will ever meet. 

Mylo has a very sensitive stomach. I mean very very sensitive. This is a dalmatian trait. He also runs a lot so need extra calories for his exercise. 

What Mylo is reviewing today. 
This is perfect for Mr tummy issues.

 Mylo is normally the more tricky of the two dogs to find food for. We have to be so careful when choosing food for him with his sensitive tummy. He loves this food. it would get two big darks at dinner time. This means he is excited. The test for a new food takes us a few days to really test. We call it the flatulence test. Bad food will have him with a huge bloated tummy and the farts. Sorry but true. I am happy to say this food passed all the test and more for Mylo he loved it. It is crammed packed with all the vitamins and minerals he could need to keep him in tip-top shape. 

Before I go I wanted to mention a friends dog I sometimes look after. His name is Ghillie and He is wonderful he is a wired hair pointer. Poor Ghillie suffered for years with a really bad ear infection and his family tried everything. The poor dog would scratch them raw. After years and years of trying every product, they could find. They switched vets who put him on this food. You would not believe it but ghillies ears are healed. You can not believe what this has meant for this handsome chap. I wouldnt normally add this in as he is not mine but it needs to be said in case you are searching dog food for something to try for ear problems. Buy this food and thank me later. 


I hope you enjoyed Millies and Mylo's review. I am sure they will be back soon with more items to review.
