We develop products with the precise balance of 50 nutrients based on life stage, lifestyle, size or special care needs. We carefully avoid too little or too much of certain nutrients.

America’s Pet Nutrition Experts Since 1939

We make every bag of our dry pet food with the highest quality natural ingredients.

High-Quality Ingredients for a Happy, Healthy Life

Hill's Science Diet cat food contains nutrient-rich, high-quality ingredients like chicken, whole grains, and multivitamins to create nutritionally balanced food.

Transition Tips

Begin the transition by mixing the current food with the new pet food. Gradually decrease the amount of the current pet food while increasing the amount of new pet food. Continue to do this over a 7-day period. Transitioning slowly can result in fewer digestive issues and better acceptance of the new pet food. For finicky, older, or pets with health conditions, the transition time could take 10 days or slightly longer.

My cats love it, so I love it. :)

I had been feeding them the regular Science Diet Hairball Control food, which they both really liked and which helped clear up the older cat's digestive problems.
ND nice
This is the same food I was paying much more for at our local veterinarian.

I have two cats, one 6 and one 2 years old. Both are indoor cats in excellent health. I saw the negative review and talked to my vet about it. I've also asked a number of veterinary professionals what to feed my cats and they all answer the same thing: Science Diet. Sure, you'll see stories of how one person's cat had issues, but even if that's 100% true, it's 1 case out of millions. Science and fact aren't based on someone's experience.

So my point is, I love my cats and I'm very concerned about their health. I trust people who actually have medical degrees and experience with a wide range of animals. My only caution is do not fall for some hype or scare tactic that recommends some unproven or untested food or some fad diet for your pet. Don't listen to me, don't listen to the negative review. ASK YOUR VET what they recommend, and follow their instructions. My guess is you'll end up buying the Science Diet anyhow.

I am a veterinarian, with a strong interest in nutrition- so when I choose food for my two kitties, I tend to be a bit picky. I have tried many types of food, and I keep coming back to Science Diet Adult Light Hairball Control. They are both slightly overweight, and one has issues with hairballs- and this food helps them to maintain a healthy weight as well as reduces the number/frequency of hairballs. I have noticed a huge difference in the health of their coats (much shinier, less shedding) when they are on this food. That being said, the vet in me notes that not every cat does well on the same food, so make sure to find the food that agrees with them the most (talk to your vet if you need advice!). If you are not a fan of feeding corn products, then this isn't the cat food for you. Myself, I have no problem with it (corn can be very nutritious, and neither of my kitties have an alergy or other issue with corn). The price on Amazon is one of the lowest I've seen- my only concern ordering it was that it may sit in a hot delivery truck, but so far the bag has lasted and the food does not seem spoiled.

Our cat was a stray that showed up at a friend's farm. He was in very bad shape...very skinny, lethargic, and his fur was very wiry! We got him on the mend with a visit to the vet and some antibiotics. But it wasn't until we started feeding him Science Diet that we noticed the change in his fur. It made such a vast difference! He has the softest fur I have ever felt on a cat! The Science Diet seems to help with the hairballs, too. It is a bit expensive, but it's worth every penny to me.

I've been feeding this to my 3, 10 year old cats since they were very young - when I tried to switch them to a "Mature" formula, they reverted to really bad hairballs, so I went back. I've noticed the formula, smell, and texture change over the years with no negative reaction from the cats; but I assume a very recent change has taken place that has put my cats off this food. I'm worried one of them is sick because he's not eating and losing weight - but really watching the others, they excitedly run to the food bowls when they hear me scooping, only to turn their noses up at it. I'm worried that I've been starving them for two weeks, and that I'll have to switch to something that doesn't work on the hairballs. Hopefully Hills will let me know what's up with the food, I asked on Facebook.

I've had several cats, most of which didn't have much of a hairball problem. However, the cat I have now, has hocked up some epic hairballs. She's the best cat I've ever had, except for this one nasty problem.

So, I bought a small bag of this hairball control from my vet, tried it, and it does seem to have had an effect on my cat's massive hairball problem. In fact, after about a month of mixing this with her other food, I've noticed that she's only thrown up once or twice, and that's certainly not as much as she did before.

I found this bag on Amazon for quite a bit less than what my vet charged, so I'll continue to order it here. Based on what I've observed with my cat so far, I would highly recommend this for those of you who have cats with the same problem.

oh, this purchase is such a miss for me. My cats don't even come close to the bowl when they smell
this food. I mixed a handful of this food in their old dry food. ouch. My cats did not eat for two full days,
they kept sitting next to the bowl and look at me with the expression "Where is our food, mama..."
I had to give up. I threw away mixed food and gave them old dry food.
I put 3-4 pieces of this dry food in my cats' wet food instead and it almost works - they manage to eat
2-3 buried in wet food. My cats have a huge problem with hairballs. I am hoping this dry food mixed
with canned food from Hill's Science will cut hairball "accidents" on my carpet at least a little...

...OK, my cats did not want to touch this food. But I did not want to waste this whole bag of food.
So after failure when mixing it with their old dry food, with wet food I gave up. But, later, I put bowl of this dry food next to their feeding area and after few days they started to eat it little by little and now it is all good! haven't have hairball vomit on my carpet so far! OMG. if this food works I am the happiest person alive.
