Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love the Grain Free Ideal Balance, I Hope the wet version is on the market soon My 15 year old cat was always sensitive to foods. She was born with milk allergies and was abandoned by her owner near my home. when she became around 15 years old she could no longer tolerate regular , or sensitive, formulas . I am so thankful for the thoughtfullness of Science Diet in creating this Healthy Grain Free alternative..She is Thriving now , and I am sure would not be the case if I hadn't been referred to this product by a passing customer who uses it!My Cat, Babies, could not hold food down, because of all the additives, and would not have survived if not for this grain free formula! Thank you for Loving our pets!! <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Balance is IDEAL!!! I have 3 very finicky eaters. Gone through so many brands! info on a new package of dry cat food...sounded so healthy and so 'GOOD FOR YOU LITTLE BELLIES' ...could this be true? Or, just another brand they would not like for very long? WELL, bought my first bag (back when the packaging had the 'old' look). I waited in anticipation...they ate IDEAL BALANCE! But would this be a fluke...or would they keep eating this new food? To my astonishment my 3 sweeties kept eating and have done so for quite some time now. When they have their check ups, the DOC gives them grade 'A'. Thanks to IDEAL BALANCE!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only food I'll give my cat My cat was born in a garden and lived outdoors until I took him home at only a few weeks old. When I first brought him home, I started feeding him primarily Ideal Balance kitten food. There have been several times when my budget required buying him a less expensive brand, but I've learned that it's really worth the extra cost to get him Ideal Balance. I'd rather spend a few extra bucks on cat food than on vet bills, and the other brands were definitely making him sick. After six months back on Ideal Balance, my little stray kitten has turned into a fully grown cat with a beautiful shiny coat and bright golden eyes, and I couldn't be happier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry, My Cats Wouldn't Eat It I won a variety pack of Hill's new Ideal Balance products for cats. It included the Chicken and Potato dry food, six cans of wet food, various flavors, and a package of the Crunchy Natural treats. The package arrived yesterday, (11/8/13) and I immediately gave my 5 cats some of the dry food. At their evening meal I gave them some of the canned food. Unfortunately, they didn't eat any of it. Even one of my cats, who will eat anything, turned up her nose. I'm sure it is healthy food and would be beneficial for them but if they won't eat it that's a moot point. So sorry to report this. I'm glad it is working out for other people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love this stuff All three of my cats have digestive problems and I have numerous other products to try and help them to no avail. I couldn't get them to eat the other products because they didn't like it. I heard about Ideal balance from a friend and decided to give it a whirl. My cats loved this stuff!! They would chow down and eat it quicker than I could get it into the bowl, and the best part is I have seen their digestive health get better over the last couple of weeks. They are happy again! Thank you Hill's, you are amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on the tummy! I've never found a "natural" or "grain free" that any of my cats would eat. I've tried the ones you hear about on tv and mine won't even sniff the stuff. I decided to go ahead and try this because I have one cat that vomits almost every single day and nothing else has worked. Lo and Behold he liked it and eats it over the other dry that the other cat likes best. It's been 5 days and he hasn't thrown up or even looked like he was going to. It may be expensive but well worth it. I hope you don't change it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Our cat Skeeter was vomiting twice a day and losing weight. This seemed to be a slow onset. We took him to the vet and they thought it was a food sensitivity after the abdominal ultrasound and blood work were normal. They thought it might be some type of allergy. The staff at our local pet store recommended Ideal Balance because so many pets are allergic to grains. Since he has been on this no vomiting and he has gained weight. His glossy coat is back and his toe nails look great too. At one point I thought we were going to lose him if things didn't turn around. Thank you so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food! Having previously had cats & dogs with food allergies, I have researched a lot of foods. I have used the cheapest to most expensive. Upon thinking about getting a kitten, I did my research again, and found Hill's Ideal Balance to be all they say it be! My kitten will be a year old on April Fool's Day 2014 !!! He has never been sick, his coat is glows from all the quality ingredients. After the "Pet Food" horrors in the past years, I am happy to find a grain free product. Thank You Hills!
