Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken & Peas Recipe Adult
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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

My Cat's Enjoy This One Too
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.

Working for weight control & less fillers diet
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.

This product has great features.
Since I have started feeding my 4 adult cats, the "Ideal Balance

Thank you Hills, for making such a wonderful product.

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.
