Science Diet Cat Food
100% Precisely Balanced Nutrition

Hill's Science Diet cat food provides key nutrients that are in amounts within an optimal range for your cat, and is precisely balanced for their nutritional needs. 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

Balanced pet nutrition has been our passion for more than 70 years. Over 150 veterinarians and pet nutritionists are involved in the development of our products. We make every bag of our dry pet food with the highest quality natural ingredients. These ingredients must meet our strict requirements for purity and nutrient content, which exceed industry standards.

High-Quality Ingredients for a Happy, Healthy Life

The right nutrition can help a cat's health, energy level and quality of life. Hill's Science Diet cat food contains nutrient-rich, high-quality ingredients like chicken, whole grains, and multivitamins to create nutritionally balanced food. Every bag of Science Diet provides key nutrients in amounts within an optimal range for your cat.

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 cat loves the food.

The size and shape forces them to chew it and this is good for their teeth.

Teeth cleaning at the Vet is very expensive.

I started using this food because my vet recommended it for my 7-year-old whose teeth need some love. Vet also recommended a fluoride, but you have to change the water for it every day and my cats avoid the water bowl with fluoride now so I skip it. My cat also does NOT put up with brushing his teeth, but he will eat this food, so it's what we do.

I like that this food comes in a resealable bag. Not good for the environment, but the bag is not paper, so my cats cannot shred through it to spill food everywhere, either.

Only thing I don't like is that the pieces are so big (and my cats are HUGE; biggest cat with teeth issues and the hungriest cat is 19 lbs). I think the point is that the cats have to break the pieces apart on their teeth, and that cleans them, but the issue is that my cats break the pieces apart, eat whatever didn't fall out of their mouth, and then move on to a new piece. At the end of the day, their bowl is full of these chewed apart bits that fell out of their mouth, and they won't eat them! It ends up wasting like 1/3 of the food. It might be saying more about my picky cats than anything else. "Oh, my bowl is full of bits instead of giant chunks! I will starve! Wake up and feeeeeed me!"

Since Frisky no longer makes those great little round balls of Dental Diet cat food, I had to go looking for something else. Science Diet seemed to be the only likley alternative. My cats liked the different size and texture of the round balls but in their infinite wisdom Frisky (the nitwits) decided there wasn't a market for the product any longer. Fat lot they know. Our three cats don't love this "dental diet cat food" as much at the round balls but they do eat it along with their other food. I buy only grain free Orijen and another dry cat food intended for indoor cats. Our cats enjoy the variety and it does seem to work. The Science Diet has an almost greasy coating on the surface but this seems to draw our cats to it. The size and shape forces them to chew it and this is good for their teeth. We have one cat that loves to swallow his cat food without chewing. How he does it when it's dry, I don't know! I believe that the larger size alone means healthier teeth and gums for our cats. Two of our cats (9 yrs old) are of a breed that is known to suffer from gum diease. They have healthy gums. I believe that a dental diet cat food helps to prevent gum disease....and the larger size provides variety to their diet that they enjoy. Not everything a cat eats has to be 100% certified good for them. Can you imagine if we always ate only healthy food! Boring! If you provide a good quality dry cat food, plenty of water (we use a fountain), routine exercise (play with them!) and a canned cat food as a treat now and then....you will have healthy and happy cats.

My cat loves this cat food so much that we feed it to her as treats. She has a tendency to get underweight so we feed it to her pretty much on demand (which is frequently). I'd recomend it for fussy cats with tooth tartar problems (the chucks are larger than normal cat food and presumably help to clean their teeth when they crunch it). I usually buy the larger size for economy's sake, but this would be a better size to try out on your cat.

I have been using this for years, mixing it with my 3 cats regular food. After spending $300 on a teeth cleaning for 1 cat I figured there had to be something cheaper and easier than brushing their teeth. This cuts down on plaque TREMENDOUSLY and is $7 cheaper a bag than my pet store!

I believe that people need to be aware of the fact that the kibble size of the Adult Oral Care Dry Cat Food is VERY large and presents a potential choking hazard to their pets. I transitioned my cat to this food from the Science Diet kitten formula when he was about 15 months old. From day one, I thought that the kibble size was abnormally large for cat food. I've had cats for over twenty years, and have used many different cat food formulas. Never have I seen one with kibble this large. It is close to marble sized. It was so large that my cat would take one piece out of his bowl at a time to eat it.

Even though I was concerned, I was naive enough to think that Hill's would not manufacture a food that could in any way harm a person's pet as Science Diet is highly recommended by many vets. I was terribly wrong. About a month after transitioning to this formula, I watched in horror as my beautiful little oriental shorthair stood choking after a piece of kibble got stuck in his mouth. For anyone who has ever witnessed this, it is a horrible sight. The poor little cat will pant and paw at the side of their face - as if they want to reach their paw into their mouth, but can't. I was extremely fortunate - as my boy was finally able to expel the piece of kibble from his mouth, which of course came out whole. I immediately threw the remainder of the food in the trash can. As painful as it was to watch, I considered it a warning. Had I not been home to witness the scene, it could have easily happened again with far more dire consequences.

I subsequently wrote to Hill's about my concern that this food presented a choking risk and received the most ridiculous and uncaring response that you can possibly imagine.

The manufacturer commented on this review(What's this?)
We have recently gained access to respond to posts from pet owners. We apologize that this product did not work for your cat and the response that you received from our office was not what you were hoping to hear.

Oral Care has a unique kibble designed to help clean teeth and freshen breath by scraping off the buildup. For this to work, the kibble has to be quite large.

Thanks again for your post!
