Rated 5 out of 5 by Ricco I noticed immediate results
I have a adult male Tabby who is over 18lbs. Within 2 weeks I noticed a significant difference in my cat's appearance and energy level. My cat looked much slimmer and his coat was shinier. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mmkost Your cat will love!
Your cat will absolutely love this dry cat food! The product really does seem to be slimming down my cat, thus making him a much healthier kitty! He really enjoys the taste of the food as described by his eager enthusiasm when fed in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindas555 Healthy and Flavorful
Even diet food for mere humans, if it's not any good who'll eat it. Older cats like mine are a little slower and sleep more, so they're less active. Now they can have a great tasting kibble that, though lower in fat, still satisfies. I like that the 1st ingredients are chicken and peas, it's vitamin and protein enriched, and includes the "superfood" of coconut oil (which I've heard from Dr Oz as being beneficial). Of my 4 cats, 1 has a weight issue (he's been meatloaf shaped since he was a youngster and now he's 13). His hips are becoming an issue and his vet says he needs to lose weight (he also takes glucosamine & chondroitin). What a great disccovery in this Slim &Healthy kibble to fit the bill. Thanks for the chance to try it! I'll certainly add this to their daily regimen.

I was very pleased Science Diet came out with a meat based dry food. I have several cats and I free feed, so Slim and Healthy is a good choice for my indoor cats. I have used Hill's brand foods for over 30 years and my cats have lived good long lives. I do wish it came in the larger bag, to be more cost effective.

My cat loves this food and the food pieces are the perfect size for her. I have not seen any weight loss yet and it's been a few weeks but she loves the food and I know it is healthy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MaxwellsMom So far so good
Our recently adopted 5 yr.old cat belonged to a 90 year old woman who loved and cared for him as evidenced by his friendliness and love of being groomed, but he did not get enough exercise and too much food. His almost 14lb. weight needed to be addressed and so the research began. We decided on the Slim & Healthy and have been feeding our boy this diet for 3 weeks. His weight hasn't changed yet but he loves this food, hopefully not too much, and we haven't noticed any digestive distress.

I was truly impressed with how my cat enjoyed this food. I have tried a few other brands but never had the results as I did with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by monica96 Love ideal balance
I used to buy the regular ideal balance but my big kitty put 2lbs on in one year. So when the slim came out I tried it again since my kitty likes science diet and needless to say she has lost 1lb. the vet is very happy. I also got a 6 month old Siamese kitten he's also on the ideal balance kitten. So thank you for coming out with the slim. Need more then one flavor.

Several of my cats had gotten a bit chunky so started them on this food. They like it and I'm actually seeing a bit of a waistline on the boys after about a month. I would definitely recommend it to others.

I feed Ideal Balance to all my pets (1 dog & 2 cats), and all three of them just love it. It has helped my two older pets drop the weight, and get down to where the vet would like them to be at. I recommend this food to any one who has a dog or cat that needs to drop a few pounds, and Ideal Balance for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kay10 Cats Love It!
I have two indoor cats that are siblings and they love this food. One is normal weight (Bender) and the other is very overweight (Buddha). I have tried numerous weight management foods but either my cats don't like the taste or it has no effect on their weight. Hill's Ideal Balance - Natural Chicken & Peas is the "ticket". They love the taste & it keeps them "full" longer. I have to supplement Bender's food to keep him at a healthy weight & Buddha is slimming down (YAY!). Thank you Hill's for a great product that is keeping my fur babies happy & healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crazycatchristina Wonderful limited ingredient diet...
I was pleasantly surprised when reading the ingredient list and saw that this diet had minimal ingredients. I purchased it to see if it would benefit my 2 sensitive cats, which it did. I was previously using a holistic grain free high protein diet purchased from my local pet store. I prefer science diet because I trust the company more so than the brand I was using, and from over the years of using Hill's prescription diets and seeing the vast improvements in my pets.
I was thrilled with this food; no itchiness or flare ups. I like that it has coconut oil, which has a multitude of health benefits. I also love that it is higher in protein and fiber, which benefits my pets.
I just WISH it was sold in larger bags. It becomes very expensive having to purchase little 6 pound bags every time.
Thanks for another great product. PLEASE do not stop making it!!!

My rescue cat had asthma-like symptoms from day 1. He was on Science Diet at the shelter and I continued it. He became overweight, so I switched to Ideal Balance Slim and Healthy. Not only has he lost weight, but his coat is silky, and he has not had an asthma attack in more than one month! I never suspected a food allergy. Not sure what ingredient in Science Diet Indoor Cat is excluded from the Ideal Balance, but the new diet made a HUGE difference in Bubba!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Callie great for maintaing a kitty's weight
My cat enjoys the taste and I enjoy the fact that it helps to maintain her weight. She is an indoor cat so she doesn't get a lot of exercise and has a tendency to over indulge a little on food. This however has helped her stay at a good weight, and in fact, I think she may have lost just a little weight (which she certainly needed to!). It also seems to be good for her coat. She has a tendency to get dandruff on her back when she's not eating the right kind of food, but she hasn't had that since starting this food. It seems good for her coat and skin.

So far I have not found a dry food flavor of his brand that my cats haven't liked. I tried out this flavor and my cats ate it up in no time. They left nothing behind and had no issues adjusting to the new flavor. When I come home from work my cats are meowing like crazy for this food.

I've been an exclusive Science Diet feeder for my cats. As they age, I've liked changing to the Ideal Balance with less fillers -- and slim weight control version is working for them.

Since I have started feeding my 4 adult cats, the "Ideal Balance
Slim and Healthy." They seem more playful and energetic. I have confidence in Hills. I know my cats are going to continue to stay healthy, happy and fit.
Thank you Hills, for making such a wonderful product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovemy3cats finicky cat with allergies likes it!
My 1 year old has a history of skin allergies. She doesn't seem too like many other foods beyond this one. Since eating this food exclusively, she no longer scratches her ears so much. My other 2 cats were a bit chubby...after some weight loss help from my vet, all my fur babies are maintaining their goal weights with this product as well.
