Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product for a great price! Was trying to find a good product that was more on the natural side and I am so happy I saw this one! My kitties LOVE it. The size of the kibbles are absolutely perfect for my smallest kitten. Looking forward to trying more Hill's products as my kittens get older! October 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product My kitten loves this brand and I feel really comfortable letting him enjoy it. June 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Natural Product for Kittens We pull kittens from the shelter every year as part of a rescue group and we want them to have the best start. This Ideal Balance natural kitten food is perfect for this. No added fillers that they don't need and the best part is that they like it! They are healthy and active and we know having natural ingredients is good for them. It is also great for our mama cats too until it is time to wean the kittens. It is nice to know that there is an Ideal Balance cat food for adult cats that the kittens can transition to when they are older that has natural ingredients also. September 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittens love AND helps with allergies Our two kittens love this food. It has kept them playful, energetic and fun loving. They digest it well and enjoy eating it. The best side affect is that when friends come over that have always have allergic reactions to cats, they say that our cats do not bother them. I truly believe it is because we feed a higher quality cat food than most. My daughter used to have issues around cats, so we were never able to have them as pets, but now we are thrilled to be enjoying watching these little kitten sisters grow up together. They are happy and healthy thanks to this food! July 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value & healthy choice for my kitten I started my kitten right away on this when I got her from my sister-in-law. She spent her first 10 weeks on a cheaper store brand. She was very gassy when we got her. After a couple of weeks on Ideal Balance her gas was gone.Our vet has commented on how soft her fur is & she doesn't shed. My vet has also told me she is the perfect weight for her age. She eats a half a cup a day based on the directions so the bag lasts a awhile. In that sense it is a good value since the food isn't full of fillers. I highly recommend Ideal Balance. October 1, 2013
