This last puchase of Hill's Indoor Adult 11+ very disappointing. Bag purchased in Oct 22 fine, one recieved Mar 23 just opened couple wks ago late mid Jun 23. Mix with another brand food trying to use up (wasn't her favorite as pieces smaller) and other used to be last left to eat but now this is not eaten as not able to swallow pieces whole as too larger but difficult to break into smalker edible pieces. Got to looking at and pieces are 1/3-1/2 the size used to be (in last bag purchased) and are hard as rocks, need hammer to break up. Am sure critters 15+ in years teeth get more brittle as they age just like humans. Shame on Hill's! They did the same thing to the ID food used to be on. So hard won't even soften with water (but cats didn't like that way). Wish companies would make 0.5-1 lb "trial" bags so wouldn't be wasting money on non-edible products. Pet food industry a racket anymore. Shame on them!
These massive pieces are impossible for my older cat to eat. She tried for three days, and by day four was on a full on hunger strike refusing to eat this food. It seems like they used to be smaller? Reviews I read before specifically mention the small pieces and how nice they are for older cats.
I read a lot of reviews on this project. So many said that the food was very large pieces. My kitty is missing a few teeth and she had no problem eating this food. I have used Hills Science Diet since I adopted my kitty, almost one year ago. She also likes Fancy Feast wet food pate.
My cat is 19. No way could she bite through those large hard bites. How can a cat food be advertised as senior cats 11 y/o plus and have the bits be so hard I could not break them up sufficiently with a meat tenderizer!
After our cat had routine senior bloodwork upon his 10th birthday, we realized his ultra high protein diet was extremely stressful on his kidneys. In panic, we searched for a senior food with a regular amount of protein - and this food saved the day! He loves it, and after a month his kidney levels are going back to normal. Thank goodness!
I previously purchased the regular 11+ version, which my almost 16 year old seemed to love. She is indoor only so I quickly went to purchase the indoor 11+ version the next time around, but realized upon arrival that the pieces are quite a bit larger than they are in the regular version. My girl has all her teeth so she can and still does eat it but I notice she does not quite gobble it down as she does with the smaller pieces. I am switching back to the regular 11+ version and will mix the rest of this bag with that one!
Don't know if she's going to lose much weight because she just started eating it but she certainly does like it.
Having two 17 yr olds I feed them Hills Science Diet 11+ dry food. I usually get the Sensitive Stomach because they kibble is smaller in size and easier for the male cat to consume. But I didn’t find that one on Chewy so I ordered the Indoor one instead. My female enjoys it but her teeth are better than his. He can’t crunch anymore. I prefer the Sensitive Stomach one.
