Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can always trust Hills to make top quality cat and dog food. Our finicky rag doll cats absolutely love the Hills Ideal Balance Hairball Natural Chicken and Barley dry cat food. I feel good feeding them this food because I trust Hills to make a cat food that is safe and also good for them. It is made in America and has never been recalled for unsafe ingredients. Would highly reccomend this cat food. September 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by No more yucky hairballs. My cats are long haired, so hairballs seem to be a part of life, but since I started feeding them the Hairball Natural Chicken & Barley Recipe Adult I have noticed a decline in the amount of hairballs. That makes my family very happy. They are not pretty. Thanks. May 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product really does help My cat is 15 years old and was vomiting a lot. I have tried many other expensive cat foods But, when I tried Hill's Ideal Balance Hairball formula - I am so very impressed & so is "whiskers" he is now a very happy kitty. April 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for all 4 of my babies It took us a long time to find something all 4 of our sensitive cat's could eat and enjoy. We love knowing that they enjoy the food and it's good for them too. And no more hairballs! June 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Pets, Happy Mommy!! I am ashamed to admit that almost the entire life of my cats, I have been using "fake" food products that didn't include real meat, rather just flavoring of meat, and had no real health benefits for my cat kids. Two of my cats have very long hair and were constantly susceptible hairballs and vomiting episodes, especially after eating. My other cats have short hair, but their coast did not look healthy, rather it was kind of mangy with no shine. I was blessed to receive this product to try, and wow, what a difference! My cats took to the food very quickly and liked it very much. Within two weeks of starting them on their new food, I see a world of difference. My two long hair kitties have not had one single episode of hairballs or vomiting and my short hair cats have silk like hair that shines like sun! This product is totally worth the price for your cats health. It makes me feel good that I am feeding them something with real meat as first ingredient and has fruits and vegetables. Just as humans need such products to maintain a healthy body, so do our animals. I love Hill's, they stand behind their product, and with good reason. They know they are improving animals lives and health, just as they did for my cats. Thank you Hills for such an amazing product!! May 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kitty enjoyed the shapes Bud liked the size and shape of the kibble. We live in an area where we have limited space so very small bags would be ideal. April 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has very healthy well balanced ingredients My cat, Beau, has beautiful thick shiny fur but he hates to be groomed. He has an issue with hairballs. I have just used the Hairball Natural Chicken and Barley for about a week. For the past few days he has not had a choking hairball incident. I am pretty happy about that and will continue the food. As a plus, Beau loves the food and runs to his dish to eat. Beau is a shelter cat and when we got him had very rough fur and had such itchy skin that he made himself bleed. I found that the Ideal Balance products with Omega 3 have really helped him. His fur is fabulous and he seldom scratches. We both thank you. My picture would not go through, too small. I will try again. May 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A true cat lover food Our cat loves her new food, after trying a few different ones we have settled on the Hills Chicken and Barley w/Hairball control and she is happy. We just wish it came in the larger size bag. November 21, 2014
