Rated 4 out of 5 by CindyLouWhoID Helps cats' teeth, some drawbacks
This was originally recommended for my cat by my vet. When I adopted her, she had horrible teeth with plaque build-ups. We started feeding her this food and it helped "scrape off" some of the build-up and minimized new build-up. Eventually, we did the full dental cleaning of her teeth and the Science Diet T/D has helped maintain. Our other cat eats it (he liked it over his kitten food).
Pros: seems to work for intended use of dental health, seems to be good for nutrition; seems to be tasty based on cats choosing T/D over other foods in nearby bowls.
Cons: Large chunks break into little ones - but the cats don't eat the crumbs, leaving waste in the bowls. Expensive. Ingredient list is not ideal. As another reviewer noted, it's basically chicken "parts" and some things like corn meal (don't have the list in front of me).
It doesn't sound like a healthy cat diet, but hey- my vet recommended it, and my cats have been healthy for 3+ years eating this stuff.

My cats love this food. It's good for their teeth and they fight over who gets the last piece. Totally worth the money in my opinion. I do add it to Science Diet older cat food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NinaC Best for tartar and dental health
When I adopted my two cats the vet said get this stuff for their teeth - and it can be hard to impossible to find locally in NYC (crazy). But it's the best. My cats are almost 9 yrs old and our last vet exam - the vet and tech both ooohh-ed about the 'like brand new' teeth in near perfect condition. For cats a teeth cleaning is about $300 per cat - and anesthesia- yuck. If there's a dental concern this is the stuff you get.

Our cat had trouble with her teeth and gums when we adopted her. After her first year the Vet recommended Prescription diet TD for her teeth. This product really helped her. Noe her gums are sound, and her teeth look very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by medusausa All six of my cats love this food, although only one needs it!
My veterinarian prescribed this food for my newest kitty, who, unfortunately, has a condition which causes her system to reabsorb her teeth, as I understand it. She's so young; only 1+ year! No problem eating these big morsels, and she loves it. I allow my other cats to indulge, because it can help remove their placque build-up, too. Haven't been using it long enough to tell how well it's working, but I do know they are all eating it. And it smells wonderful, even to me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nahkhii Great Recommendation By Vet
Our oldest boy had beginning tartar buildup issues w/initial stage gingivitis so our vet recommended this food. Due to his FLUTD issues (and the price - yikes!) we've been giving him and his six brothers and sisters (all rescues) a few kibbles each day as treats. Our vet approved using them as a treat since there is little chance of a few each day creating any issues with his UT problems. She also agreed that using them as a treat for the other cats would be a good idea as they could slow or even prevent any potential future tooth issues. And using as treats also ensures we make a bag last a lot longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thin Cats love this
I have 2 cats and they absolutely love it and it's so great for their teeth!
If you're familiar with Greenies treats which are also great for teeth, this food is similar in terms of forcing cats to chew and crunch their food which scrapes away plaque and tartar.
The difference is it also has the daily nutrients cats need! It's also low cal, so if you have some overweight cats (I have one) I can give her "more" of this while keep her kcal count down so it's been helping her lose weight without her begging me for more food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sheridan our cat likes it
Our 16 year old cat has always been picky about what foods she eats. Doesn't like canned food. Doesn't like cat treats. But she will eat this food, and our vet says it is good for her teeth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cheriwith3 treats only!
The ingredients list does not impress me. Brewers rice provides no nutrition at all (is a cheap filler). Corn gluten meal is likewise a cheap filler. The protein content is too low. Cats are obligate carnivores. They use protein and fat for energy, not carbohydrates. Whenever I see grains like rice and corn in a cat food, I think, "it's a raccoon food." I would never feed this to my cats as part of their diet, their nutrition.
However, I have adopted a cat who is a do-not-mess-with-me girl, and she hasn't yet accepted the idea of my cleaning her teeth. I see that this stuff does seem to clean teeth, so I'm offering it as a treat.
I'll let you know how that goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Judester Fewer Dental Cleanings with TD
This food is amazing especially when you have cats with a perchance for dental issues. We have 3 Burmese and prior to using the TD they were in for teeth cleaning every other year. Our 7 year old girl has yet to have a cleaning as her gums & teeth are in great shape - she has eaten the food since we got her. It is also a great food giving them great coats and lots of energy. It is also nice to find it cheaper that the Vets and delivered to boot.

My cats think that the t/d Dental Care Chicken dry cat food is a treat. I think it avoids the dentist and anesthesia for them. This is a win/win. It is on my cats diet!

Although only one kitty at our house is actually on this diet all four go nuts for this stuff! Keeps their teeth clean and breath fresher for sure - and they love the large sized crunchies. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by suebunny Cats love it and it works!
I have six cats (including my daughter's two) who love these. I give them as treats - each cat gets 4 every night before bed. I have been doing this for at least 5 years and they have not needed a dental cleaning yet. I'm saving money and saving my cats from those cleanings. It is so much easier than brushing their teeth.

They need to make this tastier. My 2, 1 1/2 yr old male kittens prefer the Hill's Science Diet "Active Longevity for Mature Adult 7-10" to the t/d and my 15 yr old female cat prefers the Hill's Science Diet " Indoor Adult 1-6" to the t/d. I won't buy the Hill's t/d until they improve the taste.

I am so glad to know that I can order these on Chewy.com. It is a vet prescription, but Chewy makes it so easy to purchase it from them and saves me the trip to the vet each time. Even my vet uses Chewy for hospital supplies. LOVE CHEWY!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri777 My cats love this food
We have 4 cats. They all love this food. It was prescribed for our male cat, Mr. Felix, but the other cats begged and begged for it. Being the softy that I am, I let them try a piece thinking that if it was too crunchy, they wouldn't want it. My mistake...they loved it. The food is great for cleaning their teeth too. Mr. Felix's breath used to smell like something died in there but now he has no smell except when he doesn't get this food that day. Oh, and the vet OK'd the other cats eating it too, so I guess we'll be buying this for a while.
