Science Diet Hairball Light Mr. Six Toes, Chubby, and Bear don't agree on many things, but they do all love SD Hairball Control LIght. Bear has a bit of a portion control challenge, so the light formula is the way to go for these three amigos. We also feed SD wet Hairball Control and it is the perfect complement to the dry. This gives Mr. Six Toes the extra fluid he needs and gives all three a time to eat together. Thanks, Science Diet, for helping us keep our pets healthy and happy. November 10, 2013
Great Product My cat loves this product. He's such a picky eater and this is the only food he'll eat. Not only has this helped tremendously with his hairballs, it also made his fur very shiny and soft. This food helps him stay in great shape. September 27, 2013
No more messy hairballs!! We have two cat's Myrtle and Stormy.. Myrtle had major issues with hairballs until we began feeding her SD Hairball control Light.. She is on the heavy side :) Both cats love the food and we couldn't be happier not to have messes from hairball attacks! Thank you Science Diet!!! July 18, 2013
Excellent Product My Cat LOVES! Our rescue cat, Lola, loves this food. She suffers from hairballs, and we wanted a food that would help her eliminate these. Well, this did it for us! She loves the flavor and it makes her coat very shiny and soft. Thanks, Hills, for helping our Lola! June 26, 2012
Really helps with weight AND hairball issues We started using this because both of our cats had occasional hairballs, despite us brushing regularly. Also the vet suggested that both cats needed to lose a bit of weight. Our one cat is now well within the weight limit he should be, and the other is well on her way. They really love the taste, and I love that the fiber amount is the highest I have found in any brand or formulation. They are healthier, and thus happier than ever! August 19, 2014
Hungrycats Recently my vet suggested this product since I have a long hair cat and a cat that likes to eat and needs something for weight control. They both look at their dish and say "no". They do like the canned hairball foods, but canned is so messy and there is no "lite" alternative. This product calorie intake suggests I give them more food for fewer calories than they had previously had. Made the mistake of buying the large bag. August 9, 2014
Hairball Control My cat is a long hair and I was having problems with her hacking up hairballs. I have now switched to Hairball control Light and the problem seems to be gone. August 4, 2014
My cat likes this food and readily eats it when his mealtime arrives. My cat seems to eat this willingly and since she has long hair and grooms herself a lot it is a wise choice to avoid hairball problems. August 1, 2014
