My cats all love the taste and eat the Oral Health food as fast as I can put it down. I bought it for my 16 yo to keep her teeth clean (no toothbrush getting near that one) & the 2-3 years olds & 2-4 year olds go for it too. I'll do almost anything to make kitty dental hygiene easier!

Rated 4 out of 5 by FoxySonia My picky cat likes this food, but only gets it as a treat.
I have a very picky, young cat, but she loves this dry cat food. I only give it to her as an occasional treat, because I don't really like the ingredients, way too much high starch junk (rice, corn and wheat gluten, powdered cellulose-aka sawdust, oat fiber) that cats as obligate carnivores can't really digest, and the protein is mainly from these sources instead of muscle meat, making this food mostly biologically indigestible and not very nutritious to cats, no matter the synthetic nutritional supplements added to it. So I don't feed my cat this food as her main diet daily meals, for that I feed her a better, healthier, gluten free, natural dry cat food, high in meat protein (80%), but I give her the Hill's Science Diet Adult Oral Care dry cat food only as a small daily treat. It's like humans that eat a healthy nutritious diet with a small dessert or junk food treat, such as a cookie, once a day. Also, I don't buy into the notion that this or any dry cat food helps in cleaning a cat's teeth, on the contrary. I believe that all the starches from the food usually stick to the cat's teeth, and after a few years will require that the cat gets it's teeth cleaned by a veterinarian, at quite a high cost. And because of the high ash content in dry food, I worry about the higher chance of my cat getting urinary tract stones, so I would rather not give her any dry food, but being the incredibly picky cat that she is, she won't eat if it's not dry food, so I hope that she doesn't develop the UT stones, but if she does, then I will have to find a way to wean her off dry food and somehow make her eat of the healthy canned cat food that I have purchased for her in the past, but she refused to eat after a small amount. But since this is supposed to be a review on this dry cat food, I rate it good, since my cat likes the taste, more than she did many of the healthier, natural dry cat foods that she's tried before, with the exception of the better one she eats now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kacie Both cats love it
My vet recommended supplementing my cats' wet food with Oral Care to keep their teeth in good shape after a cleaning, and they absolutely love it. Even while I was still mixing it with their old food to get them used to it, they would pick out pieces of Oral Care and leave the rest!

Great value over pet chains, especially with 20% off on initial autoship order. And you cannot beat the convenience! Thanks, Chewy!

My vet recommended this for my cat who is not 13 years old. He has been on this since he was 2. Never had any issues with this teeth and never had his teeth cleaned.
All this plus my cat Charlie loves this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EOEONG science diet has a food for every pet
the science diet oral care food is great for my 14 year old silver shaded Persian, as cats are prone to periodontal disease, my cat has had his teeth cleaned twice now and the doctor suggested I switch from the science diet hair ball formula he used to eat to the oral care , so I made the switch and he seems to love it. I have also purchased a bag of science diet for the aging cat, he eats it but he only picks at it, he prefers the oral care food. He is now 14 years old and ive always fed him science diet food, nothing else , and he is a very very healthy pet, he has never had any health issues of any kind. im blessed and thankful for the science diet food I do believe is what helps my pet maintain his good health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrightfulMama Great Product!
Per another review, I used this as treats and it was well received and much less expensive. The pieces are larger but all mine from seniors to 6 month old ate it, the young ones use the kibble as toys. I like that I can give them treats that are as good for them as their regular food. Great prices and service. Have placed more orders and will continue to be " Chewy"

Rated 4 out of 5 by CALN Very Good Oral Product
My cats were delighted by this product (as well as the Royal Canin). They are almost exactly the same except that this one smells less strong and is lighter in color and slightly less humid. I imagine it comes down to how strong you want your cat's stool to smell, or maybe you don't care. I offer both brands to my cats because I feel that with these two products, it's up to them to decide which one they want to brush their teeth with that day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by moss7032 Hill's revised foods hv made me a non-customer.
I've been feeding my cats Science/Prescription Diet for well over 20 yrs. Recently Hill's changed their receipes due to the sudden popularity of Blue Animal foods.My current male (Jake), is sticking his nose up at his usual Hill's food. The female who has gum problems and nds to eat soft dry food, cannot do so now because Hill's decided to change their oral food from soft balls to smaller harder balls.
I wrote a letter to Hill's cust/serv. At this time, they do not have any soft/moist dry food available. They told me they wd forward my thoughts to development. That's great but, Jake/Darcie need to eat daily.
Now I'm looking for new foods for each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaudeA A dental workout for cats
This is supersized kibble, so the cats are forced to chew their dry food instead of just swallowing the bits whole. It's too soon to tell if it's helped one of my cats's tartar problems. However, we're pleased with the way it slows down the younger cats at mealtimes -- no bolting the food down and throwing it up a few minutes later! This is probably NOT a good choice for an older cat who already has serious dental issues, as an animal like that might not be able to eat it at all. But so far it seems like a good way to try to prevent future problems. And all 3 of mine like the flavor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by schneckky Saves Money and Keeps Teeth Healthy
After years of fighting dental issues with my cats, my vet suggested I switch to Science Diet Oral Care. Any animal lover knows how quickly vet bills can mount up when you have cleanings and extractions for multiple cats. Since switching to Science Diet Oral Care we have had ZERO dental issues. I tense up every time she looks at their teeth, and then get a huge amount of satisfaction when she says, "Wow! Their teeth are beautiful!" Even my 20-year-old cat has great teeth. I highly recommend using Science Diet Oral Care, or at least mixing it with your current cat food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yuri Yet fully satisfied
I have a hard time to clean my cats teethes. I've tried to clean their teethes twice a week, however they were busy to run away from me every times. Throughout the great reviews of this product, I decided to buy. I feed my cats 4 times a day with varieties of product including pouches, hairball control dried food, boiling turkey with cabbages and this one. Since i started feed them, actually i am not yet satisfied. My cats seem to have bad breathing and tartar still. I will keep continue to feed this product because their hairball product works good with great outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tomcat Dental Dry Food A Must For Your Cat and Budget!
With veterinary dental cleaning hitting the cost of hundreds of dollars, I highly recommend Science Diet and other brands of dry dental cat food to save your cat's health and your wallet too! I create a custom mix of dry food for my cats which includes three types of dental balls. Since I have been doing this, I haven't had any dental problems with any of my eight cats. In fact my vet asks me what I do to keep their teeth so clean. A couple bags of dental balls a year for each cat sure beats a $600 vet bill. Try it, you'll like it....so will your cat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LisaC203 My cats love it!
I've been feeding oral care to my four cats for about 4 years now. My goal is to get them through life without multiple teeth cleanings at the vet. So far so good! Their teeth look great! And they love it! I have one cat with a weight problem so I only give her a small handfull each day for her teeth. She thinks it's the best treat ever.
My only complaint with this product is they do not make it in the large bag which makes it expensive to feed multiple cats. But I do recomend using it as a daily treat even if it's not used as a part of a meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarthaJean Great Supplemental Oral Care
My Ragdoll cats Whitie and Khari enjoy this food. I give it to them as a supplement (but not every day) and in separate dishes from their other foods. I utilize this food as a backup to brushing their teeth daily. I tried a food for Maine Coons but I did not feel comfortable with the ingredients (corn) although the cats enjoyed the crunch and the food. This kibble has a nice mild aroma also and it is apparent that the food does what it is designed to do.

My cat loves Science Diet Optimal Care food. If I mix it with other dry food he eats the optimal care chunks first.
I love it because it helps keep his teeth clean. Leo is 15 and I've never had to have his teeth cleaned by the vet.
Optimal Care version is a large chunk dry food for cats. It helps clean the teeth because they have to chew the chunk before swallowing. I've given samples to some of my friends with cats and their cats loved it as well.

One of our cats will do anything for this stuff. As soon as you start shaking the bag he'll come running and start jumping and clawing at you to get to it. He really becomes unmanageable when this stuff is around lol. Anyway, we feed it as a treat as a treat because we like to feed Orijen as their main diet (Orijen has much better ingredients), but do recognize the dental benefits of this product. So 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FurryOnes Kitties love this...
I use the oral care for four of my kitties as "treats" -- and the one that is very finicky and very thin/lean by nature, I feed as her "crunchy" diet along with her wet food. I know they are highly caloric and she likes the taste, so I make sure she gets as many as she wants. Not sure how well it cleans teeth, though...as all of my cats have had dentals.

My cats seem to really like this food. I just tried it for the first time and was worried about the size of the kibble bits when I first saw them because they are much larger than most dry food bits for cats, but my cats had no problem with them at all!! They devoured the food and anytime I can give them something that is good for them it makes me feel good!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by theboysmom Big enough for my cats to pick up
Having Persians is difficult to find dry food that they can pick up and eat. Their usual brand was discontinued, so i went searching for another choice. I found this and tried a bag, and the cats love it!! Thanks for making a dry food that is big enough for them to pick up with their beautiful flat faces!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AYates Makes them chew their food!
It isn't the be all end all for teeth, but it solves inhaling food and requires the cat to chew the food because of its size. The older cats tend to swallow rather than crunch and this forces them to,use their teeth. I mix it with their LID food as a good supplement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ace2011 Large kibbles!
Since the kibbles are large, my Maine Coons can use their paws to pick it up. Requires them to chew the kibble since it is too large to swallow whole. Any thing with extra fiber also helps with hairballs. Great supplement to use with Royal Canine Maine Coon food.
