Love that this product is grain free!!! I have just recently gotten 3 new kittens and I am so happy that Hills makes a kitten food that is grain free. All of the babies love the food. I'd like to see one other variety for the kittens as well. A little disappointed that there are no coupons for use with the grain free kitten food. Overall no bathroom problems for the kittens either. Thanks for a great product. June 17, 2015
Great product My kitten loves this brand and I feel really comfortable letting him enjoy it. June 7, 2015
Kittens Love it! The only problem is some places do not carry the kitten bags, January 18, 2015
Anyway my cat liked it!! I just got my kitten a month ago. He was very weak n looked like he had never eaten dry food before but he has tooth. So I tried this brand n he liked its taste but a little hard to eat. If its next time, please make it more moisture n softer so other cats can eat easier as a starter... Well I see they like the taste for sure!!! Good luck :) )) September 23, 2013
Kittens Love Ideal Balance I wanted my foster kittens to have the very best start in life, so I have been feeding them Ideal Balance. They are eager to eat and have grown beautifully - their coats are in excellent condition. I've been feeding all my cats Hill's Science Diet for nearly 25 years and was very happy to add the new Ideal Balance to the routine. October 6, 2013
My cats love the taste. I have two adult cats. Since I started feeding them "Ideal Balance", they have more energy and a bigger apatite. I don't have a camera at this time. August 16, 2013
Nutrition & Easy to use closeure I have used Science Diet products for all our dogs for years. Recently we had no companion until we found & rescued a kitten who was in serious condition from the AZ heat, a previously broken leg, and lack of food. He has had lots of medical care & Science Diet, Ideal Balance and TLC and is now a beautiful 7 month old Siamese who rules the house. He so admired by all who see him and our Vet has given him an excellent bill of health. But imagine my delight when I opened my latest bag of Ideal Balance and found it had Velcro closure. Thank you, thank you, Hill's. These weak, arthritic hands often just cannot close those other kinds. I would continue to purchase it for that if nothing else, but I know our little guy is getting the best we can and will give him. October 6, 2013
Ideal balance Hi, my new kitten came home small. The family sold at 6 weeks and wouldn't hold, too many kittens. My first stop was the vet. My second stop the grain store to get science diet for kittens. I was luck and ideal balance just came in so I bought that. We got home and Emmy had no clue what the kibbles were so i took water and moistened it. I sat on the floor with little pieces of chicken and the moist kibbles and she laerned really quick. I went in the kitchen yesterday and she was trying to open the bag for more! I treid to get camera but missed it. She had her vet visit she was 1.8 lbs and was much bigger tan last week when she came home. thank you for a quality product I can trust. I don't trust many after the pet food rfecall, thank you Bob July 26, 2013
