Hill's® Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying
Even my SUPER picky kitty loved it..
Thought it was a bit expensive but they don't need to eat as much. They weren't getting filled up on the Other brand, just kept munching. This satifies their appatite. Filled up and purring!

My cat spaz is 12yrs old and recently was sick and ran a high cat temperature of 106. She wasnt eating and had a few infections. My vet switched her to this food for her regular diet and she has just thrived! She eats it freely and loves the taste of it. She is healthy again and loving her kitty life. It came highly recommended by my vet and now I highly recommend this to all.

Great product for a senior cat!
I came across Age Defying about 2 years ago at my Vet's office. Thought it would be a good choice for my then 13 year old cat who had always eaten SD foods. She had be showing signs of aging and was slowing down. I even called her our grumpy old lady. I loved how small the kibbles were and she took to it right away. It did seem a lot easier for her to eat. It wasn't long before I started noticing her running around the house like she did years before. She actually wanted to play! Something she hadn't done in quite a while. Now she's an energetic 15 year old who just had a check up. The Vet said she looked amazing for her age!!

Since starting on Hills Science Diet Senior 11+ Age Defying, Miss Nina's coat sparkles as much as her personality. (I keep having to edit as she's "helping" me type this...) She zooms around the house the way she did as a kitten, sleeps on my head, and chases her younger sib Chloe Cat. You'd never think she was an old lady cat at 12 years of age! She likes her dinner so much, she demands an audience while she eats - silly cat...
Proper diet is an integral part of pet care. My furbabies have eaten Hills Science Diet most of their lives, and it shows.

This product improved my kitty's overall condition.

This product is amazing!
We have been feeding this food to our senior cat for about 7 years. She is now 18+ and very healthy at her age! She is spry, energetic, and playful. Her coat is still thick and shiny and her vet says she has the teeth of an 8 year old. I would highly recommend this product-it lives up to it's claims!

Excellent for older pets
I have five cats, all between 12-14 years old. After a few weeks on the adult age defying dry food their fur and litter box habits improved remarkably.

My cats really like it. My cats are 11 & 16 yrs old. This food is good for their age. They seem to be doing good on it.

I only wish it were more palatable for her
I have trusted Hills Science diets for years since I work in the Veterinary field. I only wish this particular diet had a better or "enhanced" flavor or smell since cats eat by smell rather than taste so much. She is very difficult to feed and getting her to eat this was easier than others I wasted money on. She gets 1/4 cup morning and night. Her coat is beautiful and her eyes are just starting to get a "cloudy look". She is 14 yrs. young.

Age Defying helps my cat stay young!
My 13 year old cat, Friday loves Science Diet Senior Age Defying cat food. It helps her to stay active and healthy. My friends all can't believe shes 13 years old! She looks and plays like a much younger cat! I won't feed her anything else!

My cat Lady was nine when she got attacked by a dog and lost her back leg. After her second surgery the vet recommended Science diet senior. She is about to celebrate her fourteenth birthday and she loves her Science diet senior. She is in great health and her coat is so beautiful and I owe it all to Science diet senior.

We like this dry food because of the small kibbel size. It makes it easy for my 19 year old to eat dry food.

My old man loves this food...
My geriatric fussy feline loves this food. The tiny kibble is easy for him to chew and it is very palatable. I noticed a change in his energy and his coat became even shinier. I switch between this and the indoor age defying to help with hairballs. Thank you.

When I think healthy I think Science Diet.
I have been feeding my kids science diet for over forty years one of my eldest live to 26 years of age. Now take 26+ times 7 that gives you an adult kitty.

Our 2 senior cats love this food and still act like kittens!

The small size makes it easier for the senior's to eat
I have tried many brands for my picky cats and when I gave them Science diet senior dry, they loved it. I try different brands from time to time with promotions, but they like Science Diet. The price could be lower, but I am happy that my cats Sly and Charisma eat it

Special for seniors is good
I like to serve this cat food made or the special needs of my most senior kitty. He enjoys it and I think it is good for his health.

Age Defying for seniors
15 years and counting, this food has been a nice balance for health and nutrition. Her fur looks better than before and she is loosing a little bit of weight which is good for her maturing body.

Not as tasty
My cat doesn't like this as well as the adult sensitive stomach dry food, but I guess this is supposed to be better for her. She is 21 years old.

Keeps our cat young
Our cat will soon be 16 years old. She has slowed down some, but still enjoys life and has no health problems.

My cat likes this food.
While it is important to feed my cats with healthy, age appropriate food, it is sometimes hard to find a food that they will readily eat. Hills Science Diet dry for adult cats is well received and my older cat really likes it.

The cat likes it.
The cat seems to have few digestive issues, and he likes it.

My finicky old cat turned his nose up
I had such high hopes for this dry cat food formula. My senior cat needed a change in his diet. However he is a very finicky eater and went on a hunger strike. Thankfully there is a money back gaurentee. I'm sure other older normal cats would love it, but mine didn't.

Turns my senior cat into a kitten again
My 15 year old cat had been healthy throughout her life. She started acting differently-not herself. She began vomiting a lot & had trouble with using the litter box. I took her to the vet & her blood work came back that her kidneys were slowing down but with the proper nutrition she could have many years ahead of her with a great quality of life. No prescription food though because she could be fine if she had a healthy lifestyle. I asked the man at the local pet store if there was any special sort of food he could recommend. He said he had luck with the Science Diet Age Defying for Senior cats. He reminded me that it came with a guarantee and also that it was developed by veterinarians & who would know more about feeding your pet healthy. I bought a bag and within less than a week the turn around in my cat was fantastic. She got her "kitten face" back again & began to play like she did when she was younger. (We do have 2 younger cats that help to keep her at a good weight by exercising her a lot) Next trip to the pet store I thanked the man & told him how good my cat was doing. Ever since then she has been her old self. No litter box issues or vomiting at all-except an occasional hairball-she is a Maine Coon.

I have fed Sol, my lovely rescue cat with Science Diet for the last 6 years since her vet recommended. While she was recovering for an awful sickness, her vet told me about Hill's food, a better food to help her during her recovery. She survived the impossible and since then she is eating Hill's. She successfully transitioned through the different formulas as she aged, and now, she love the"improved" formula. She is healthy and active, like a young kittie, and she is almost 12 years old.

Cat won't eat "improved" fornula
I have fed my rescue cat Science Diet for the 14 years I've had her. She successfully transitioned through the different formulas as she aged but when I put the "improved" fornula out for her, she wouldn't touch it. I thought she was sick and I couldn't figure out why she wasn't eating, then I saw the "improved" banner on the bag. I went to the store and found a bag of the old stuff and she gobbled it up like always. I'm going to hoard as much of the old formula as I can find, but I'll eventually have to find another brand for her to eat because she won't eat the "improved" formula.

My senior cats act young again
I have 3 cats (4m, 13m, and 17f). Since switching the seniors to age defying SD, they have not acted so young in years. Every month that goes by the 13 yo male gets friskier, more adventurous, and more playful with his younger brother. His new "thing" is wanting to go on walks around the house on a leash. Three years ago I didn't know if the same cat would make it another year. Vets wanted to do major surgery on him. Luckily I found better alternatives and focused on his diet and getting him mobile. I never thought I would see that same cat do laps around the house. I also can't emphasize how helpful it has been reducing his weight to a healthy range.
In just the past year, he started having problems keeping moist food of another brand down. I switched him to the adult moist SD knowing the dry food had been so helpful and he is no longer having the digestive issues.
I have had both my seniors on the hairball and weight control formulas before as well. It's just something about the age defying that really works for them.
My 17yo female does sometimes have more hairball problems then when she was previously on the hairball specific. Otherwise, it is the best product I could ask for to give my senior cats. My senior cats went from sleepy, old cats who didn't want much to do with me, other than the obvious feeding, to interactive, loving, cats that act more like they did in their youth.
I also have to really try to keep the 4 yo out of the seniors' food. I've put him on the adult SD version, but he loves having exactly what the older cats eat.

My 4 cats love it!
Although I bought it for my 17-year old cat, Blanca, all 4 of my cats (ranging from 4 to 17 years of age) LOVE it. The small kibble is easy for her to chew. It's keeping her energy high. To give her variety, I also feed her Science Diet's mature adult turkey wet food, which is low in protein. I'm amazed how many other brands have senior cat formulas that are high in protein, which is harmful to their kidneys.

Nobody liked it :-(
My two 15 year old cats have always eaten Science Diet, and when I saw this I thought "Great! Something maybe better for them!" Brought it home and put it out next to their regular food and it went untouched. Even my two younger cats ignored it. Should have returned it, but put it out for the ferals. Someone ate it at least. Guess I need to stick to what they are used to, but thought you'd like to know my cat's reactions to it.
