Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulaC My cat came a running!
Although it's important to me that my cat like the product, it's even more important that I know what's going into that product. Ideal Balance seems to fit that bill for both of us. The biggest factor is that it didn't hurt her digestive system (and our olfactory system!)!

by Catlover65 This product has Omega 3 and Omega 6
My cat is the fussiest eater you could imagine. Furthermore he has a regurgitating problem. The Ideal Balance not only encourages him to eat more but it has cut down on the "barfing" issue. I am going to stay with the Ideal Balance as he seems to like it and is keeping a good weight with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sabrina siamese cat in love with this dry food!
Have a siamese cat who is allergic to many kinds of cat food containing corn and wheat so it was important to find a food that he wanted to eat and could tolerate. He is in love with this food and comes running when he hears the bag open! He no longer scratches himself raw after eating and seems to have more energy overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mandy This stuff is amazing!!
As soon as I heard about this food I ran out and got some. I have three cats, they are all inside cats and recently They have started developing some digestive problems and dry heaves I am assuming due to hairballs, but I started feeding them Ideal Balance and whoo! what a change. I have already started seeing their stomach problems dissipate. The best part is they love this stuff!

I love how it is good for my pet. No artificial flavors and/or colors and preservatives. Healthy for my cat, that's all I want in pet food. A little pricier than others, but well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MattyMan Ver approves nutritional values, cat loves the food
Our cat loves the ideal balance chicken and brown rice food, just right size for 5 yr old that lost a few teeth during last cleaning, and the vet read the label and said that science diet or ideal balance are the gold standard for quality and nutrients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amay81 Has been practically a miracle
For years my cat would vomit after eating and after trying various foods we gave up and assumed this was just "her". When Ideal Balance came out, we gave ita try. After a month, I realized there had been NO vomiting incidents! It's now more than a year later and she has had no more incidents. It was based on her reaction alone that I switched my dog and my parents' dogs to the Ideal Balance, as well. We are all pleased with the great quality of this food and the positive different it has made. My cats are so spoiled to it that they resist any other brand now, which we tried when we lost one income. Apparently, it's Hills or nothing for them!! I highly recommend the Ideal Balance to anyone!

I adopted a cat from a rescue who had been eating only donated food. I have been feeding him Ideal Balance wet and dry food & see a difference in his weight and activity level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ctlvr70 Very Healthy Food
My 5 year old rescue cat has been in our family since he was one. He had an extremely itchy skin to the point of making himself bleed with scabs all over his neck and face. Many visits to the vet and many treatments did not help. I started him on Ideal Balance just over a year ago and saw gradual improvement with his itching problem. He very seldom scratches himself now and I have to say it is the Omega 3 in the food which has really helped him. In addition his fur has thickened and is shiny and healthy looking. I am so glad that Ideal Balance has helped this cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dlray24 A brand I can trust
Hill's Science Diet is a brand I feel I can trust. My vet feeds her pets Hill's Science Diet and that makes me feel that I can trust them. I feel good knowing there is through and research going into the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Foodie45 Hill's pet food products are the only ones that I have used for 25 + years.
I have always had pets - both cats and dogs. My last canine, an Alaskan Tundra wolf, lived to a ripe old age in good health. My last kitty lived to be 21on only Hill's food. I am getting older now and down to one cat, one year old. He started out on Hill's Ideal Balance Kitten food and now eats Ideal Balance Chicken and Brown Rice Adult food, which he greets with relish each morning. He is a big and healthy 17-pounder and I will ever change his diet!

My little Kimmie (Kimba) really enjoyed the Hills Ideal Balance cat food, which I received for free from Crowdap in exchange for my genuine opinion of the product.
She looked forward to her feeding times with exuberance and joy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenandChad This food saved our cats life
We had been to the vet for almost two years because our cat had several issues with diarrhea and loosing weight. After several testings, financial stress, the heartache of cleaning up litter box messes inside the box and it would get kicked all over the place outside the box, and stress on me and my husband, the vet said it was a food issue. We then had the stress of trying out different foods when we have two cats. The one only had the food issue. We were at the end of our rope with trying to help out our cat. We really felt bad for her and wanted to help her. We had tried a lot of different food products. We like to try to eat as much organic food as possible because we are trying to be healthy. So, we were trying to find natural foods for our cats. I read on line that if a cat is having issues with diarrhea, some times they have an allergy to any type of potato's in their food. So, we tried Hills Ideal Balance Brown Rice & Turkey Recipe. Our cat is a different cat now. She plays and runs around, she has energy, she has no more diarrhea, she loves to eat, she is gaining good weight and both of our cats love your food. Thank you so much for saving our cats life. We are so thankful we found your food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenandChad This product saved our cats health
We tried your food because our 2 year old cat was having health issues. We took her to several different vets. All of the tests came back negative for any health problems. The vets said she probably had a food allergy. After a year and some months of trying many different foods, the extreme stress and financial costs of trying different foods, we were blessed to find your chicken and brown rice recipe by Hills Ideal Balance. Our cat had diarrhea, kept loosing weight, was very grouchy and wouldn't eat very much. We looked up on the internet that cats with digestive issues sometimes have an allergy to potato's. So , we tried your food and finally our cat is healthy. She has put on some weight, loves to eat your food, very playful now and has no more diarrhea. We have two cats and both cats love your food. We are thankful we found your food. Would like to see more of the food packed into the bigger bags but other than that we are extremely happy with your food. Your food saved our cats health.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SantaFeMarty Quality ingredients made our decision to buy.
I know of Hill's products after working at a vet clinic in the late 1980's. You continue to have a good reputation, and I was happy to purchase your brand when searching for a less-grain-based food.
Although I must admit, my cats do not like your Chewy Naturals treats.

My cat loves Hill's Ideal Balance Natural Chicken and Brown Rice food and I love it too. I am confident my cat is getting the best nutrition possible and she likes the food.
Her health is important to me, making sure she gets the best to look and feel her best is a bonus. Thanks for the great cat food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaeBird Great for finiky eaters!
I have a female Ragdoll that isn't a big eater. She's a little picky and we were having difficulty getting her at a good weight on just the adult optimal care. We decided to give the Ideal Balance a try and WOW! She loves it - she's eating about 50% more than before! Her coat is even softer and shinier. I didn't think that was even possible as the adult is great in that area too. So happy we gave it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SharonNatsarim Good food more energy
This is a great food and most importantly...the cats like it! It can be the best food on Earth but if the cats don't eat it...what good is it? I have also noticed that some of my cats are more active than they were, so better health inspires more play:) Always a good thing.
I only wish that this food came in a larger bag size and was a bit less expensive but all in all...its a great food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ams23 They fight to be the first one at the dish.
I admit, I have tried to upload this review a few times without success, so it has gotten shorter each time. I bought Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Adult because I had a coupon. I don't buy it all the time because it is expensive and I have 3 cats to feed, but I have to say....they love it. They fight over who will get to the dish first. I'm not adding a picture this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PlainsGirls Amazing Improvement in Senior Cat
My 14-year old cat has rebounded from being a crabby, reclusive pet displaying significant aches and pains -- into a more playful, energetic, sociable cat who enjoys being brushed and petted (instead of biting me because it hurt!). My two younger cats, ages 2 and 5, eat the same Ideal Balance food and love it. I was reluctant to change foods, but I believe my cats eat less of Ideal Balance and all of them show more energy and overall good health than on their previous food, also a high quality brand that's been around for years. There is very little picking through the food bowl and less food on the floor that's been licked and rejected. I haven't changed anything else in their diets so I feel certain these improvements are from a better balanced diet. Without hesitation, I recommend Hill's Ideal Balance cat food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dani05 Finally found a cat food they can all eat!
We have 4 cats, all rescues. Our 10 year old has a very sensitive stomach, the 4 year old has digestive issues, the 3 year old is picky and the 2 year old has spina bifida which causes serious digestive issues. Anything we tried would have a bad digestive effect on at least one of them. When Ideal Balance came out we gave it a try. It worked, for all 4 of them! They come down in the morning, and all meow waiting for their bowls. No more throwing up all the time, no more accidents or other digestive problems. We're very thankful for this product and definitely recommend it for everyone. We like it because of the ingredients and it keeps our feline family happy.

by ams2359 Healthy food they eat.
I have 3 cats with 3 very different preferences, but they all like Hills Ideal health. When I bring home a bag, I have to immediately dump it into the plastic container or they will eat a whole in the bottom of the bag and help themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shar9107 My cats love it!
Tried this food (all of the adult cat flavors) because I have multiple cats and sometimes one or more gets a stomach upset. I thought perhaps the grain in other cat food was causing bloating, etc. The cats fell in love with this food and I've noticed a lot less gastric issues. It would be great if it was a little less expensive since I'm feeding a bunch, or that more coupons were offered to help with the cost but I'll keep buying it because the cats like it and it seems to be healthier for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyCatCVT13 She LOVES it!
My cat Midnight is a very finicky eater. In the past I could not get her to consistently eat a food she would stick with. I decided to swing into a Tractor Supply and that's when I stumbled upon the bag. I decided to give it a try and she LOVES it! It has been about 6-7 months, and she is just as excited to eat it as when she first tried it! I will continue to stick with this food and it made her coat plush and shiny and soft. I am so glad I had decided to give it a go. :)
