Wonderful product! The vet told us Oskar should weigh 9# not 15 so we reduced the amount of another brand of food he was getting per the doctor's instructions. This did not result in a weight loss so I got Adult Light to try. After the first month, he is down about 1.5# and I can see a waistline! While I think 9# is a little light considering his length, we will stick with this food and I will reassess when he gets to 12 pounds. He loves it and so do I. I wonder if it would work for MY weight loss!?!? September 30, 2013
Excellent for weight loss We have a 14 year old cat named Tippur who is a domestic short hair. On September 17, 2010 she weighed in at the Vet's office at 18.30 pounds. The Vet suggested that we put her on "Science Diet Light" dry cat food. On September 6, 2013 she weighed 11.00 pounds, that's a total weight loss of 7.30 pounds. Today Tippur is a happy healthy cat, and it's all because of "Science Diet Light" cat food. Thank you SO Much !! September 26, 2013
This products works. My cat was a rescue and sat in a cage for 8 months doing nothing but eating and sleeping. When I adopted her she was definitely overweight. I started feeding her Hills Science Diet Light Adult and within 9 months she had lost a much needed 2 lbs. It definitely satisfies her appetite and most importantly it works. September 26, 2013
A dry food my cat enjoys. I started using the "light" adult formula because my cat packed on a great deal of weight after she was spayed. I have used this cat food for four months now. I have followed the recommended daily feeding amount, but my cat has not lost ANY weight. I will continue to use this cat food only because my cat enjoys it. April 20, 2014
Cats love the taste We have two cats that we adopted from friends at different times. We got our female first and she was used to a different brand of food. We wanted to get her something healthier and chose Science Diet Light since she was a little chubby. When we tried mixing the two dry foods together to slowly ween her off of her previous food, she ate around her old food, and only ate the Science Diet pieces. The same thing happened when we brought our male cat into our home. He absolutely refused to eat any of his old food and only ate the Science Diet. Even now, months later, they still try to claw open the bag to eat to their hearts content. Feeding time is their favorite time. April 15, 2014
Great for my cats weight my husband and I only buy our cat Charlie the adult light bagged dry cat food, we have found that our cat loves the taste and we find that the price is reasonable compared to other products on the market. He gets good results at the vets also when he goes. awesome April 1, 2014
my cat loves it My can loves this food and does well on it. He loves to eat and has a tendacy to be a little over weight. This food helps control his weight and keeps him sadisfied. And I am sent coupons once in a while, which is a bonus! March 2, 2014
This is an excellent value for exceptional quality. I have been giving Hills Science to all of my cats for decades. Due to some of their health issues which was caused by a cheaper and inferior brand, my veterinarian suggested trying Hills cat food. My cats have eaten no other brand since, nor have any of them suffered ill health beyond old age issues. Hills is excellent quality and my cats have always enjoyed the food. I am a loyal purchaser of Hills cat food and have never again served an inferior product. February 26, 2014
