    Not so good

    My cat really doesn't care for it. It has a different consistency and smell. It dries hard as a brick quickly.

    Cat's happy

    By on

    I was surprised that my cat liked this new food right away, as he doesn't usually go for chicken. He is 18 lbs, trying to get down to 16 lb. It's just been a couple of weeks, but he does seem to have more energy and hasn't been complaining about missing out on dry food.

    My cat will not eat more than a nibble of the r/d Hills RX food and even then it has to be from a fresh just opened can.

    Cat won’t eat it

    Cat won’t eat it but I don’t blame the product. She is finicky. I wish I could have only gotten a single can. Now I have a case I can’t use.

    My cat is over weight. This impacted his health. A vet put him on this food. I’m giving it a try. He will eat it but I am finding that it’s not an overwhelming response.

    My cat loves it!

    My cat has trouble eating the dry r/d food because she has lost several teeth over the years. I started using this to help her out while still giving her quality food to still maintain her weight. She loves it! Will keep buying this as along as she likes it!

    Cats aren't thrilled, but well balanced diet food

    By on

    I wish I could get this in 5.5 oz fish flavor instead of chicken. As a pate, they already don't approve. Making with white fish would be a big improvement

    He likes it!

    By on

    My 7 year old male orange tabby, Monet, has been on the Hills c/d since he had struvite crystals at one years old. It was always such a chore to get him to eat it- I had to scrape the food down the bowl, put it in the refrigerator for a while and try again. He really liked the dry c/d but is very caloric and he could lose a pound or so. At the last vet visit, my vet suggested the Hills r/d which he said was fine for his kidney condition. He LOVES it! I think maybe it is because it is a different texture (not as soupy). He also likes the dry. And I love it because he gobbles up his wet food and I don’t have to worry about my other cat eating Monet’s dinner.
