This catfood really helps my cat with hairball problems. Before this food, my cat would vomit gross hairballs almost daily. Although I was giving her hairball paste, it didn't help very much. And it was a pain to get her to take the paste. This food has the hairball control included so she is getting a dose morning and night. It works better for her, significantly reducing the number of vomiting episodes to maybe once every couple weeks. The food is a little pricey, but worth it. November 4, 2013
Great, consistent quality Our cat has been eating this specific product for the last 6 years. We have tried him on other brands thinking he might like a change but he will only eat the hairball control. It must work as he hasn't thrown up a hairball in all the time we've had him. October 22, 2013
Exceptional nutrition with a hairball control Our cats have fallen in love with these products. They will not eat any other brands since we have started using Science diet because no other brands have an enjoyable taste and an equal nutrition value. Our younger cat has a longer furrier coat and would have hairballs weekly. Switching to hairball control has completely eliminated her from having them. We couldn't be more satisfied with all of the HILL's products. September 5, 2013
my cat loves this he loves the taste, he nibbles on it throughout the day. July 11, 2014
Best ever!! The hairball formula is the best!! This is the only hairball formula dry cat food that helps in decreasing the amount of hairballs my long hair cat hacks up :) & this is the only type of food he will eat now: my long hair cat will only eat dry cat food, no wet food or cat treats and no "people" food, although he does enjoy eating his hair! I have a short hair cat that will eat anything under the sun including wet & cat treats (she will kill for the wet & treats), but she also enjoys this food also as evidenced by her chunkiness. This is a wonderful product & I do not feed my cats any other type of dry food! Thanks!! July 4, 2014
Great for all ages and needs Our pets have always had beautiful silky, shiny hair. We have used the kitten, light, the hairball control and the mature for our cats. All were just the nutrition they needed at that time in their lives. June 27, 2014
We love Science Diet, but our cat hates the hairball formula We decided to get the hairball formula since our cat has long hair and has had issues with hairballs before. The only problem is, he wont eat it. He loves the kitten food, so I don't know what it is about it that he doesn't like. Anyway, we need to figure out what to do with it...I haven't figured out how the "money back guarantee" works so I don't know how to go about doing it.... Otherwise we love Science Diet, and plan on getting the kind he likes. June 26, 2014
Our Vet says it's the best brand out there. If you live in an area where there is alot of heat, this is the product for you. The hairball situation is really under control. Our cats are short-hair and indoor. We have not ever had a hairball issue! June 24, 2014
