Qualitz "Holmes junkie"1151343606400Great cat food, great valueI adopted my cat from a shelter and this is the type of food they fed him and urged me to continue feeding him. He absolutely loves it and I won't be changing brands or food anytime soon. It seems to be a very high quality dry cat food and it's definitely one that my cat loves. The big bag of food is great especially if you have large Rubbermaid (etc) containers to store it in so it doesn't get stale. I'm very happy with this food and I'm very glad the shelter (and my vet) ended up recommending it. My cat is happy and I'm happy knowing he is being fed appropriately with high quality food that is helping him stay healthy.
387242387242B001VIYCK4A3TC4CXKW7SVJ6ed1151335657600cat foodits cat food that was offered at a good price...and being a premier member, i got free speedy shipping. cat food starts out hard when it enters the cat. it exits the kitty as a soft item a day later, minus nutrients/vitamins (hopefully).
387243387243B001VIYCK4A3QVUWJRPSL4CRcscmarshall1151334534400Thank God I found this food!We have 2 cats, one of which started having stomach issues about a month after she traveled eight hours and moved into our house. We thought it might be the stress of the drive, the change to a new habitat and a new cat friend. She was throwing up frequently and also having issues on the other end - I won't get into the gross details. A trip to the vet got her some antibiotics that helped for a short time, but she was back to being miserable, and obviously uncomfortable with using her litter box, not two weeks after seeing the vet. Since we found this food and transitioned her on to it, she hasn't thrown up. Her other issues have cleared up too and she is feeling healthy and happy again. So I'll say it again: thank goodness for this food!!!
387244387244B001VIYCK4A209QRVZ99UQDCCalamity Jane1151328486400Best for Dental HealthThe vet showed me that my 14-year-old cat's teeth and gums were in bad shape. Her teeth were stained and layered with plaque. Her guns were bright red along the edges. She had Gingivitis. I was facing a $300+ teeth cleaning bill for the cat. The vet recommended I try Hill's Dental Diet first. After two months of eating it, the cat returned to the vet. The large, hard nuggets had cleaned the plaque from her teeth. Her gums were no longer red, but pink and healthy. Hill's did what was needed. I am thrilled with the results.

Yes, this food is expensive, but so is a teeth cleaning bill for a cat, as well as dental problems if you don't. Once my cat's mouth improved, I cut back on the Hill's. I feed my cat a main diet of Purina dry, but I still give her 8-10 Hill's nuggets a day. She's been on this mixed diet for one year and her teeth and gums are still good and healthy. The Hill's large nuggets act like a tooth brush that scrapes against the cat's teeth.

Pound per pound this cat food is actually less expensive than those little bags of tarter control cat treats you buy in the supermarket. Once you get control over your cat's dental problems you can maintain her by giving her several Hill's Dental Diet nuggets a day. If your cat has no problems yet, consider giving her a small handful of Hill's Dental nuggets to ward off any future problems. This stuff works!
387245387245B001VIYCK4A36DS1EIECPDPONW mom1151323820800Can't live without this cat foodHave been using this cat food now for a few years after the vet recommended dental cleaning (very expensive & put them under anesthesia - no way!). Our cat is healthy and her teeth seem to be in good condition. She loves the taste and size. She won't eat any small food anymore (I have tried some samples) and actually eats all the Science Diet and leaves the small ones for me to discard. It's a bit pricey but I would recommend it.
387246387246B001VIYCK4A3HS7FAIHHW998YKG "Avid Reader"1131319414400MehI bought this for my cat, who suddenly started vomiting on a daily basis. No rhyme or reason for it either, not hairballs, or some kind of illness. This didn't help the vomiting issue and considering the cost of the food and composition, I've since switched her to a product richer in proteins that costs a similar amount and actually seems to have quickly cleared up the problem.
387247387247B001VIYCK4A966L65JSN8XNN. Schleif "night owl"1151319241600The only thing all my cats will eat!I have three very different cats, with very different tastes. The Science Diet adult hairball formula is one all three will eat without a fuss. They really like the taste, and have been eating it for years. Plus, it really works to prevent hairballs! I've tried many different brands, but I always come back to this one because I know it's high quality and they will eat it. If they ever stop making this particular one I'm in trouble, they don't seem to like the other Science Diet kinds!
387248387248B001VIYCK4A2YIP1EF88XCDVAmanda B.1131312156800Way more expensive per pound than the larger-sized bags of the same foodI posted my review for the quality of this cat food here: Hill's Science Diet Adult Sensitive Stomach Dry Cat Food - 15.5-Pound Bag, which is the same food as this but in a larger bag. Here, I just wanted to point out that this smaller size bag is actually much more expensive. As of the date I'm writing this, this 3.5-pound bag costs $3.71 per pound, whereas the 7-pound bag costs $3.50 per pound and the 15.5-pound bag costs $2.32 per pound. So you pay over 50% more per pound for this size compared with the largest size. Just wanted to point this out in case it could save anyone money! I like the cat food a lot.
387249387249B001VIYCK4A2YIP1EF88XCDVAmanda B.1141312156800Has mostly cleared up our vomiting problemMy 5-year-old kitty has always eaten Science Diet (first the kitten formula, then the Adult Indoor formula), and has always been very healthy with a gorgeous coat and lots of energy. A couple of years ago she started vomiting after meals about once a week. The vet said there was nothing wrong and she was probably just eating too fast. We immediately switched over to this Sensitive Stomach version and the vomiting frequency decreased dramatically. Now she vomits only once every two or three months. I'm skeptical that there is anything really different about this food, and it could have just been a coincidence that she stopped vomiting after we switched. Still, I'd rather just stick with this kind than find out. I took away one star because it is, in my opinion, unreasonably expensive.
387250387250B001VIYCK4A25C5MVVCIYT5DNatalie Dawn1151304726400The only thing that workedI understand all the complaints about Science Diet. Believe me I avoided this food for quite awhile based on that information. I'm not thrilled about the filler, would prefer a food with no by-products, and yes in general think it is over priced. But my cat was throwing up everything else. And I do mean EVERYTHING else. I have tried so many top of the line foods for him and every single one he threw up. I took him to the vet, had all the xrays done, all the blood work done, put him on antibotics just in case... nothing. He is a perfectly healthy cat except that he was throwing up food 2 to 3 times a week. I talked to my mom who had 2 Siamese cats that lived into thier late teens and she said she fed them Science Diet. In fact, one of them had urninary tract problems and the SD was the only food that stopped his problems. So yes, I understand everything everyone is saying about why SD is so horrible... yet I can't argue with the results. I fed my cat this and it's been 3 weeks with no vomiting. My mom fed it to her cats and they lived long, healthy lives. I just can't argue with the results. And even if there were risks it's worth it not to have my poor kitty completely emptying his stomach 2-3 times a week from food that is making him sick. If your cat keeps throwing up, you've had the vet check him and there is nothing wrong and no other food is working... try this food. It really did work for my cat.
387251387251B001VIYCK4A20OQMLRFNZADLJazzer1141303862400Bag keeps getting smaller, price stays the sameMy cat has been eating this for years, and it seems that the bag keeps getting smaller and the price (for a while) kept going up! My cat has very sensitive stomach - so this does the trick. I just hoped it contained more meat verses fillers!
387252387252B001VIYCK4AI8B17RJ6FGA0lisaseanscott "lisaseanscott"1151302912000My cat likes the tasteMy cat is 13 years old. I had been feeding her Friskies Dental Diet for most of her adult life, but it was discontinued. While on the dental diet she never needed to have her teeth cleaned. I decided to try the Science Diet brand. She seems to really enjoy the taste of it. I mix it with some smaller dry food and she picks out the large Science Diet food first. It's too soon to see if it will work as well as the Friskies on her teeth, but hopefully it will.
387253387253B001VIYCK4A1CECG42QSGZ9Eaustriana1151301443200Huge differenceLike other reviewers, I have a cat who would get sick often. I had her checked for issues, but she is otherwise healthy.

So when a my new vet suggested a sensitive stomach food, such as this, I figured it was worth a shot.

The difference is amazing. She still has an occasional hairball (this doesn't fix that issue...I didn't expect it to. And my fluffball has more fur than any other living creature, so I can handle a once-a-month hairball). But her near daily throwing up has stopped.
387254387254B001VIYCK4A1RI1R5A82V25BRobert Byrd1151298505600wish I'd started using it 5 years agoI have two litter mates. One can eat anything with no problem. The other always vomits ten minutes after eating, no matter what she eats: canned or dried makes no difference and I've tried every store brand there is. Hairball treatments had no effect. I figured "cats throw up" and didn't worry about it. When I moved and switched vets the new vet asked if the cats ever threw up. When she heard about the one cat she said cats do NOT just throw up and told me to get the Science Diet sensitive stomach food. Yes, it's 4x the price of what I'd been buying, but I noticed a difference with the first bowl. Instead of throwing up ten minutes after literally every meal, now she throws up maybe once a month. If only I'd switched to this brand years ago we both would have been saved a lot of misery. Even tho it costs more I've noticed that the bag seems to last longer than the same amount of cat chow did.
387255387255B001VIYCK4A2UR5U40Z0G5PSPatricia G. Harnish "Pat"1141298505600My cats like this!Since Frisky no longer makes those great little round balls of Dental Diet cat food, I had to go looking for something else. Science Diet seemed to be the only likley alternative. My cats liked the different size and texture of the round balls but in their infinite wisdom Frisky (the nitwits) decided there wasn't a market for the product any longer. Fat lot they know. Our three cats don't love this "dental diet cat food" as much at the round balls but they do eat it along with their other food. I buy only grain free Orijen and another dry cat food intended for indoor cats. Our cats enjoy the variety and it does seem to work. The Science Diet has an almost greasy coating on the surface but this seems to draw our cats to it. The size and shape forces them to chew it and this is good for their teeth. We have one cat that loves to swallow his cat food without chewing. How he does it when it's dry, I don't know! I believe that the larger size alone means healthier teeth and gums for our cats. Two of our cats (9 yrs old) are of a breed that is known to suffer from gum diease. They have healthy gums. I believe that a dental diet cat food helps to prevent gum disease....and the larger size provides variety to their diet that they enjoy. Not everything a cat eats has to be 100% certified good for them. Can you imagine if we always ate only healthy food! Boring! If you provide a good quality dry cat food, plenty of water (we use a fountain), routine exercise (play with them!) and a canned cat food as a treat now and then....you will have healthy and happy cats.
387256387256B001VIYCK4A2OGYI3WUPYY2JJane M. Baker1151293494400The best thing for cat's teethAlthough it may seem just a tad precious, our vet recommended this for a young cat who doesn't brush. He has clean teeth, fresh breath, and I hope will have all his teeth all his life. Plus, both he and his girl friend love the taste!
387257387257B001VIYCK4A3B2IP2Q0CUBI6azcatlover5711308441600Buyer Beware - Potential Choking HazardI believe that people need to be aware of the fact that the kibble size of the Adult Oral Care Dry Cat Food is VERY large and presents a potential choking hazard to their pets. I transitioned my cat to this food from the Science Diet kitten formula when he was about 15 months old. From day one, I thought that the kibble size was abnormally large for cat food. I've had cats for over twenty years, and have used many different cat food formulas. Never have I seen one with kibble this large. It is close to marble sized. It was so large that my cat would take one piece out of his bowl at a time to eat it.

Even though I was concerned, I was naive enough to think that Hill's would not manufacture a food that could in any way harm a person's pet as Science Diet is highly recommended by many vets. I was terribly wrong. About a month after transitioning to this formula, I watched in horror as my beautiful little oriental shorthair stood choking after a piece of kibble got stuck in his mouth. For anyone who has ever witnessed this, it is a horrible sight. The poor little cat will pant and paw at the side of their face - as if they want to reach their paw into their mouth, but can't. I was extremely fortunate - as my boy was finally able to expel the piece of kibble from his mouth, which of course came out whole. I immediately threw the remainder of the food in the trash can. As painful as it was to watch, I considered it a warning. Had I not been home to witness the scene, it could have easily happened again with far more dire consequences.

I subsequently wrote to Hill's about my concern that this food presented a choking risk and received the most ridiculous and uncaring response that you can possibly imagine. First they felt compelled to tell me that this particular formula was designed to maintain oral care and that they had a different formula for adult cats. This was completely insulting as I was very much aware of that fact and had intentionally purchased the food for the stated oral care benefits. In addition, the fact that they have other formulas has nothing to do with the concern I have with this particular formula. Next they asked if I "transitioned" my cat to the new food, in what I can only interpret as a lame attempt at trying to make me feel as if I was somehow responsible for the situation. Short of putting the food into a blender, there would be no other appropriate way of "transitioning" one's pet to avoid the risk of choking on this product.

I don't for one minute believe that my cat's experience was an isolated occurence. If you are thinking about buying this product, please, please, please be aware of the risk as it is VERY real.
387258387258B001VIYCK4A3IE3TQ79W0YORRyan Johnson91311280793600Please avoid!!Please do your research on pet foods and what is actually good for your cats. Hills science diet is a horrible food filled with horrible ingredients. They charge an outrageous price because it's the #1 vet recommended food. This is a joke and the only reason why it's rated #1 buy vets is because Hills gives money to soon to be vets to help them go through school. Then they sell the cat food to them cheap so they can jack up the price and make a nice profit off of your marketing foolishness. Read the back of the labels of Hills brand and you will see that most of the top ingredients are grains or cheap meat by products which are the feathers, bones, unwanted organs from animals, basically all of the stuff we wouldn't eat. try something like orijen or evo.
387259387259B001VIYCK4A2VPLF0XFAYMPTEbbie4631329177600Too large for catsThis food may be good for my cats, but two of my ragdolls, and these are large cats, will not eat the chunks because they are so large.
387260387260B001VIYCK4A1JXV99H2PXHZOJannette M.4651190851200Excellent for good health of catAfter a year on kitten food, one of my two cats began to get rather chubby. He had a hard time hauling himself up onto one of the cat perches in the house. We switched to this food when they hit their one-year birthday, and my little chubby cat began to lose weight. Now, a year later, the indoor cat formula is all they eat, and my cat can jump up to the top bunk of the cat perch with no problems at all. He has an all-star physique. I do have to say, they preferred the kitten food too at first, but when given no other options, they eat this food with no problems. If you look at the nutritional content of the food, indoor cat formula has very little fat, while kitten food is quite high in it. Oh, and I've also seen *maybe* one hairball in the last year. Not bad.
387261387261B001VIYCK4AGTN05CEBVIKZBlackcat4641176249600Good FoodScience Diet has always been known for decent quality food to feed your cat or dog. This product is no different. I have a finicky cat who will only eat certain types of dry food and this seems to be one of them. She took right to the dry without any hesitation and seems to continue to enjoy it.

On the downside is the size of the food. The food comes in large triangular shaped pieces that some cats may not like. Buy a small bag and try it for your pet.

4/5 stars for the size of the food and the price tag.
387262387262B001VIYCK4A2CEGQNSC5YGSRDeborah Koerperich0051341964800Meow!What can I say...this is the only brand of food my cat will eat. She tears into the bag by chewing on it as soon as I get it. I have to pour in into a plastic container. It also controls hair balls.
387263387263B001VIYCK4A23LQTCXKUQ3HXKatja0051341792000yummi for the catsWe got 2 cats. 1 Siami and 1 Main Coon. Food is great and the cats like it. So what i have to say?
387264387264B001VIYCK4ATRNPNV3V7VXUDiamond "Diamond"0051341705600Saved my CatThis product was recommended by my vet, and literally saved my cat's life. I was very worried and was willing to try any diet on the market. Really, I have tried many diets etc but nothing seemed to help out my cat after the sudden onset of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). I have no idea of where that came from. I always gave him clean water; fresh food etc but this caught me off guard. I have been feeding him "Friskies" prior to Hill's and everything was fine until one weekend. After a couple of days of feeding him, I noticed an immediate difference. My cat was no longer passing soft stools (diarrhea), and was eating as he normally did. The diet also seems to have been helping him regulate his weight also. He was a very big guy (~20 lbs) but now he is down to 16, after about 4 months on Hill's. Thumbs up and 5 stars for this product!
387265387265B001VIYCK4A1IAPAG0S4R0K0P. MacDonald0051340064000Best cat food ever?Wow if i knew how much cats would love this stuff i would have been feeding it to any and all of my cats long ago. You would think it was wet food the way my kitty chows it down. I got it because he had gingivitus and i had to spend quite a bit to have his teeth worked on. The vet told me his teeth are still looking nice and clean a few months later!
387266387266B001VIYCK4A1HRYC60VTMYC0Ace0051339718400Five stars and an Eight paw SaluteOk cats, you can stop wiggling and showing me your lovely bellies, and get up and play.

Let's get down to the nitty gritty. Hill's Science Diet Adult Hairball Control Dry Cat Food does what it says it does and MORE!!!

Now, I DO feed my cats wet food, so I give them Hill's Science Diet Adult Hairball Control Dry Cat Food as a TREAT and a SUPPLEMENT -- and it is powerful stuff!! To be graphic, let's just say that Big Bad Baby Twinkle's poops used to look like small rocks, no matter what I did for her food (and she loves her daily hairball gel too) -- but NOW after feeding her even a small amount of Hill's Science Diet Adult Hairball Control Dry Cat Food (twice a day after she eats her wet food) one look at her litterbox and I think that a German Shepherd has visited the litterbox. To say that this makes me happy may sound wierd but now I KNOW that "stuff" is moving THROUGH her intestines and not getting impacted or staying inside and creating toxins.

The same for Cee Cee kitty -- she, who is daaainty and small (BBBT weighs twice as much as Cee Cee and is twice as long as Cee Cee), also pops out some big ones now. I am happy -- yes I am -- this means their intestinal transit time (from eating to pooping) is shorter and they are healthier for it.
387267387267B001VIYCK4A24SLSJXS37KDLJudy Fields0051334188800Hills Science Diet Oral CareMy cat loves this cat food! He likes the big chunks and if I mix it with another variety which is smaller nuggets he sifts through and pulls out the bigger oral care pieces. Another plus - my cat is 13 and has never had his teeth cleaned. The Vet believes the oral care chunks have been beneficial in keeping down the tartar on his teeth.
387268387268B001VIYCK4A3W2NI4XLYQWS7Carol K. Haas0051324944000the only cat food I buyMy 2 indoor cats have been on this food forever. They do not get any canned food supplements. However, with all the Science Diet flavors I often find that the large bag of this one is not in stock when I go to buy it in my local pet stores including the big box stores like Petco or Petsmart. so finding it on Amazon and eligible for Prime shipping made my day.
387269387269B001VIYCK4A966L65JSN8XNN. Schleif "night owl"0051323820800Only food my cats can agree onThis is the only flavor of Science Diet (or any other brand) they will all eat without complaint. I don't know what I'll do if they stop making it. I have 3 cats, two Maine Coons who get hairballs, and this stuff really works to prevent that. As long as they eat some of it daily no more hairballs on the floor. It's a great product. I hope they never try to "improve" the recipe or change it in any way, or my cats will probably reject it as they have so many others! If it ain't broke please don't fix it, Science Diet! It's a winner as is.
387270387270B001VIYCK4AVFFYUUYJDEEOjimmytherat0051321660800vomiting cats?We have several cats, one of which has had a vomiting problem for many years. We tried many cats food. Science diet sensitive is one of the foods that works. There are 2 otherss. 1 is Purina 1 Sensitive which is also great. the other is a Royal Canin Oral Sensitive. I think the Science Diet and the Purina 1 are the best. We also give the cat Prednisolone under a Vet prescription, as the vet said it was inflamatory bowel disease.
