Rated 5 out of 5 by My kitten loves it! My 5 month old kitten loves it! I usually give it to him as a snack at night and he just gobbles it up. August 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product for my cats Excellent nutrition, lower fiber content so that sensitive cats don't develop irritated tummies. Kibble size is appropriate for both smaller and larger cats. August 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value and perfect for optimum kitty health! I was surprised by how much my kittens LOVE this. My vet recommended this for both of my kittens and they go nuts for this, and you can't beat the price either. I love this brand myself for all the health benefits and great ingredients. It's on my autoship list! July 10, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Expired Food Date I would assume that Chewy or whom ever orders cat food would keep up on the expiration dates on the food especially kitten food. I ordered this in December 2015 and on the bag it saids "Best Before 12 2015". I would never of given this to my new little kitten if I would of seen that. I had given some to the feral kittens outside and some to my kitten inside and wondered why they smell it 2-3 times before trying it and walking away. I now have more kitten food coming and I will probably just return it to be safe and go to the store or pet shop and buy their food. I am really in shock with Chewy because I have bought so many nice items and this just did it. February 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product. Cat loves it! And, it is good for them. Blue is also a good product. March 17, 2016
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 Our 20 year old cat is a ked again Our cat "pussycat" is at least 20 years old. Had difficulty with standard sized hard food. We researched his physiological needs and decided to go with the present smaller sized more nutritionally applicable Hills Kitten food. The results are extremely gratifying; he is generally healthier, maintaining a good weight, with improved blood panel results for kidney function, etc. December 19, 2015
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
