  • An excellent food for delicate kitty digestion!

    By on

    We have two cats aged 6 years. One has a bullet proof stomach, the other (a Russian Blue named Liam) not so much. Liam has very thick fur and when he cleans it tends to clog his throat and digestion in about 2 or 3 days, causing him to vomit the fur and any food in his stomach. This is messy and a pain to clean up, so we started feeding him Hill's Adult Hairball Light Dry Cat Food. Along with this, we add a healthy teaspoon of organic 100% pumpkin puree to each meal. These two supplements completely eliminate his vomiting. Interestingly, if we give him only one of these supplements, his still vomits hairballs, so the combination is what does the trick.

  • Great for cat with IBS and runny poo

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I bought this one by accident and being I have 2 very overweight cats tried it anyway. I have not used it long enough to see if it helps their weight yet, but it sure works on my one with IBS and runny poo. Overnight she is back to normal. I have tried treating her for coccidia, worms, and using all natural clay treatments. Nothing worked. Some hairball foods did the opposite but this one really firmed up her poo. Now if you have a cat with constipation issues, I would not recommend this one but would used canned food in that instance.

  • Love Science Diet

    By on

    I'm a Licensed Veterinary Technician and Science Diet is the only food I trust for my boys. Meeko loves this food and it does help with hairballs. He's also a little on the heavy side so I opted for the light version for him ;-)

  • Amazing product!

    By on

    I have a big white Maine Coon who loves to groom himself - all day long! I've been using Science Diet Hairball Light for his whole life and it absolutely works! We might see a fur ball once every couple of months. I've run out and had to get him another formula and it's amazing what happens (there's fur balls all over the place). Now that I have Chewy.com though we never run out. =)

    Excellent price, fast delivery and my pet as been on this diet for 11 hrs. Ordering online with Chewy.com when I'm unable to drive to the store at times, is excellent and the price saves me money as well, compared to store prices. Thanks

  • Crowd Pleaser!

    By on

    I have 7 cats ranging in age from 2yrs to 14 yrs and they all love this. This food is a great mix-in with any other Science Diet dry food to help with hairballs. I have seen a definite difference in frequency of hairballs since adding this to their prescription Metabolic formula.
