    Literal lifesaver

    By on

    A kitten I was fostering was failing to thrive with no clear reason why. At 4 months old he was was still barely 2 lbs, his coat was dull and sparse, and all of his whiskers broke off. I tried several other foods with no luck, and buying this food was my Hail Mary. Since being on this food he has gained over 2lbs, his coat looks fantastic and whiskers are growing back in. After all we went through I couldn’t give him up, so once he was medically cleared to be neutered I officially “foster failed.”

    Kittens like it , the vet likes it

    By on

    I purchased this food for a quartet of kittens I am fostering . Learned about it last year when my two youngest were kittens and my vet gave us samples. The kittens all adore it, they put on solid healthy weight and the have fewer, smaller and better scented bowel movements than with Purina One kitten

    Works well for my kitties

    By on

    I adopted 2 sibling kitties at 10 weeks old and this was the food they were given at the shelter. At their first Vet appointment, the Dr. gave his blessing to this formula. The kitties love it and it hasn't bothered their stomachs or anything. Very happy with it.

    Adult cat acting young

    Our 2 kittens love it. I know our 14 year old shouldn’t eat it but he does. He acts just like our kittens running around chasing each other

    Happy kitty

    By on

    My kitty seems to be pretty picky about her food! I read it was a good idea to mix up the food so they dont get so picky, seemed like a good idea!! I ordered the Ideal Balance from Hill's, I use Science Diet already! Anyway she really loves this Ideal Balance! I feel good giving her this product it seems more natural ingreditents & probably better for her digestion system!!

    A Favorire!

    By on

    My kitten just wolfs down this dry food. I read the ingredients, and it was comparable to organic favorites like "Blue". Also, the package explains why each ingredient is added. Hill's is the brand the Humane Society uses.

    Kittens love it!

    By on

    This brand was recommended by our vet and the kittens love it. You can’t buy it in any chain pet store so make sure you use the Chewy auto ship option.
