My allergy prone cats really improved while eating Hills Grain Free. Wish I had a truck load of this stuff. My 3 rescue cats really really enjoy all the flavors of Grain Free Adult food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babies15 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

My four cats all eagerly consume Ideal Balance Grain Free and seem to be in great health. The somewhat rough coats they came in with from the rescue quickly became silky on this food. I am pleased to be able to feed my cats a grain-free food from a company I really trust to produce a balanced food that goes through AAFCO trials and is manufactured with the highest quality-control procedures.

This food is a much better choice than the grocery store brands. My cats love it and it is much better for them since it has no fillers. The food actually has a pleasant smell.

I have two cats and they both love this food. I buy only Hill's Ideal Balance Grain Free Natural Chicken & Potato Recipe. I've noticed that their coat looks healthy and has a nice shine. I've always trusted Hill's with my cat's nutrition from kitten to senior for the last 25 years and I love this addition to their product line. I highly recommend!

I tried several other brands before settling on Ideal Balance. I am able to best maintain my cats weight and control his itching and shedding. Working in the veterinary field for over 7 years, I trust Hill's Ideal Balance for both my pets' dietary needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindi629 Fantastic Results
We have (3) cat's and one of our girls has herpes she was only 1 3/4 pounds at 6 months and in very rough shape when we got her from a no-kill shelter, We have been searching for a cat food with L-lysine added to help with her health issues and in the past we tried the L-lysine soft chews, vitamin paste and no grain food. Today is 30 days on the Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Grain Free Natural Chicken & Potato Recipe Adult and she is 4 years old. Her name is Karma and she has gained over a pound and looks GREAT - no longer had digestive issues, her eyes are clear and she isn't sneezing her coat is super shiny and getting thicker. THANK YOU for making such a super healthy food for our girls they are all thriving!! We bought the 11 lb. bag and they all free eat daily and we still have some left. This is the only food I will buy and our "Karma" thanks you too!!! Totally recommend this product.

I have the pickest cat i have ever seen, she would just cry and cry for your food and refuse to eat her food...I am a member of the #PetFoodCrew and have received a product from Hill's Ideal Balance, and Mavis was instantly in love. I have finally found a dry cat food she will eat, that i know is healthy for her, and that is affordable!!!!

One of my cats has digestive problems. It took me a long time to find a kibble that would agree with him. Not only does this food agree with him, but he loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PKRJ 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pianoman An Ideally Balanced Dry Cat Food
There is a lot of controversy and competition about the best food for a cat. Should it be dry or wet? Does grain free matter or is it a fad comparable to various kinds of fads in human food?
For whatever odd reason, I have become interested in cat food since getting my kitty over a year ago. There is no shortage or expert opinion or reviews. They can be contradictory and confusing.
Much of the decision is a matter of trust.I tend to go with large, experienced manufacturers. Of these, I have become most comfortable with Science Diet, the manufacturer of Ideal Balance.
Several months ago, I gave Ideal Balance a try, courtesy in part of a manufacturer's rebate. My cat really seemed to enjoy the product and I have been using it as the dry food portion of her diet ever since. It is difficult to assess the impact of these things because I feed her the Ideal Balance as her main meal only about twice per week and give her small portions daily to supplement her wet food for the rest of the week. But I think she has become healthier and livelier, with a shinier coat, since I started her with the product. She enjoys it and the food is healthy. There is little more to ask. I do feel better having kitty off grain fillers for at least part of her diet.
The food has a natural chicken base and includes potatoes and cranberries. The Company's blurb on the package indicates that "Ideal Balance provides the perfect balance of nutrition for your pet's health -- nothing more nothing less." It also includes charts for protein, fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, showing the consequences of both deficiency and excess of each and the result of an "ideal balance".
This product is made by a knowledgeable, experienced company which, I have come to rely upon as having the welfare of the animal in mind. I have had good results with Ideal Balance and will continue to use it. The pricing is on the high side but worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmandaPhx 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.

I have just switched my cats to the grain free and have seen a great difference. There are less hairballs and throw-ups. With 2 long hair cats and a short hair, every little bit helps. If it came in a bigger bag and less expensive, that would even be better!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 42horses You can always depend on Science Diet cat or dog food.
You never have to worry about Science Diet dog or cat food being recalled. I can depend on the food being good for our cats and because one of my ragdoll cats is very picky she will only eat the grain free natural chicken and potato dry food. I don't worry about her not getting everything she needs in this food. Great value for the money too !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LSB2832 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.

. My older cat seems more energetic, and neither cat has the
"gastric distress" .that they both suffered from with other dry foods. Our lives have become balanced (lol).
