Great for Hairballs I adopted my 13 year old cat Cleo from the pet store where I used to work when she was about a year old. She is an awesome self groomer and DETESTS being bathed. Needless to say then, she has hairball issues! Working in the pet store I have tried every cat food we carry over the years searching for a food that helps her pass the hairballs and we ALWAYS came back to Science Diet. Her coat just shines and her skin has never had an issue. This is a great food with a taste she loves and never tires of. I supplement the dry food with different flavors of Science Diet wet foods to make sure she gets enough water in her diet. Science Diet is a great company and they have a great cat food!

Can't eat anything else!! I have 2 adult house cats. I have tried to switch them a few times from the hairball control food to a "cheaper" brand or even to a regular science diet brand. But, everytime I do, I regret it and end up getting the hairball science diet right away. They leave me "presents" all over the house (puked hairballs/undigested foods) or they get very loose stools from the other store brand hairball foods. Thier coats even start to look dull with increased shedding. I will never try to feed them anything else!! They will also pick out and eat only the hairball science diet if I mix it with another brand!! July 23, 2012
60/40 I have been feeding a mix of Hairball Dry with Oral Dry (60/40) for over 5 years now. It helps eliminate hairballs and dental problems. Both cats love the taste and come find me when the bowl is empty. August 4, 2014
Hairballs virtually eliminated! As my cat aged, she had more "stomach upsets" from regular cat food. I told my Vet I wished there was a Science Diet Senior Cat Hairball Control Food, and she said there was,so I gradually changed Ellie's food and there has been no looking back! Ellie loves the food, and the incidences of finding unwelcome "surprises" on the rug went from almost daily to maybe once every other month. I'm very happy for her, and for us. Ellie is really a very healthy 13 year old, and now has been on this food for a year-should have done it sooner! May 17, 2012
This really helps with my long hair cat.. I have a 15 lb. Main Coon with a beautiful grey stripped coat. I mix the Hairball Control with the Adult food and he digs right in. I noticed the difference in the amount of times he "gets rid" of the hairballs so it's made a difference. He's eaten this food from when he came home from the shelter and he tries to "bury" any other food that I've tried. Both of us are very happy with our choice. May 22, 2012
Miracle food... Our old tabby cat had an awful time with hairballs and throwing up daily. The vet said she was just prone to throwing up - nothing was wrong. We switched to Science Diet after trying just about everything else and not only does she love it, there's rarely any trouble with her keeping it down! We're thrilled that she's happy with the taste and no more mess to clean up! July 13, 2012
Excellent my cat is really picky and when i switch him over i cant keep enough in his dish ..he wants more great product .. February 21, 2014
changed from the regular indoor I changed formulas for my indoor cat just recently. she never had a hairball problem before. now it appears she does.. so I purchased the hairball remedy formula and... poof... back to normal. as usual,your food does as it promises to do. thanks so much.
