Two Paw's up from Scrappy

By 

from Appleton, WI

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Dry Cat Food:

When I got Scrappy at four weeks old she had a bit of a (gas problem) and when I took her into the vet I asked about her little problem and they said the brand I was feeding her had a lot of fillers in it and that can cause this.

She gave me a 2 pound bag to sample of **Science Diet Nature's Best** and Scrappy took right to it and with in a week (her little gas problem was gone).

It costs more, but **Science Diet Nature's Best** doens't have fillers in it, it's made with made with real ocean fish, has vitamins and minerals, garden veggies and whole grains and a taste she just loves.  I thought I would try the chicken flavor because she loves chicken, but she prefers Ocean fish crunchy.  I know she is eating healthy and it's something she likes...Well it is all about my cat and she gives this product two paws up!

Great high quality food but expensive

By 

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Dry Cat Food:

I really loved this food. I love and trust all of the Science Diet foods and I think Nature's Best is even better because it is naturally preserved and made with high quality ingredients. My cat did like the food and transitioned to eating it very well. However when she ate this food the odd shaped kibble would break into very small pieces that she wouldn't want to eat. With this food being expensive enough as it is we couldn't be wasting as much as she was leaving in her bowl.

If they change the shapes of the food and eliminate the breakage problem (or my cat realizes it's okay to eat the pieces that break!) I will buy it again.

works for all my cats

By 

from Durham, NC

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Dry Cat Food:

Natures Best cat food by Hills is a great food.  I have three cats and they love its smell and taste. It is a premium cat food as is all Hill's diets and since my cats do not need a special diet for sensitive stomach, urinary tract issues or a diet food, I use Natures Best food.  My cats like both the chicken and salmon flavors. I alternate to give them some variety;my kitties like a change of taste quite frequently. The makeup of the Hills Natures Best is overall very balanced with both minerals and vitamins added for my pets optimum health. The balance of fat and protein is managed for the cats health needs.  My vet is very happy with the food and recommends that I continue to use it. I have used Hills Cat foods for years and am very happy and proud to use their blends.  It is more expensive than a more commercial food, but I believe the health and beauty of my animals is more important than  the cost of "ordinary" food.

Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Cat Food really is the BEST!

By 

from Canton, OH

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Dry Cat Food:

When my cat started vomiting on occasion I took him to the vet. The vet told me that many cat foods are made with fillers and the fillers may not be agreeing with my cat's system. He suggested Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Cat Food so being the concerned pet parent that I am I went to the pet store and bought some. My cat tends to be picky so I didn't have high hopes on the response that I'd get from him when I put this new food in his bowl. But to my surprise he dug right in! He loved it! I couldn't believe my eyes. Since my cat's been eating this food he hasn't had any tummy problems. He also leaves less smelly waste in his litter box and since this food is more nutritious there's less waste. This food is so much more nutritious than the brand that I was feeding him previously. It makes me feel better about meeting his nutrional needs. And his coat is also shinier and he seems to shed less.

Science Diet Nature's Best IS The Best!

By 

from Saint Paul, MN

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Dry Cat Food:

I have been buying Science Diet Nature's Best Ocean Fish cat food for about two years now. Lucky (my spoiled cat) and I love it! I have always fed my cat Science Diet but I was really impressed when they came out with a natural food. I feel better feeding it to my cat knowing that it's natural. It does tend to be rather expensive. Since I'm the "Coupon Queen" I always seem to have a coupon which helps. =) The kibble shape is a little large but all dry Science Diet cat food has that shape. The only real issue I have with that is my cat leaves little chunks of food in and around his food dish. He will eat them if I put them back in his dish though. I am waiting for Science Diet to come out with a natural canned food!

The first Premium cat food that my cat will eat!

By 

from Duluth, GA

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Nature's Best Dry Cat Food:

This Cat food is the best on the market.  My cat did not start off having the best in life before I got her and because of her shady past she was used to eating junk off the grocery store shelves and people scraps. 

 I tried in vain to get her to eat the premium food that are better for her but I had no such luck.  So on a recommendation from the vet I tried the Science Diet Nature's Best and BINGO!  We had success. 

The issue with the other Premium foods is not taste as much as it is the lack of different shapes.  I even tried the slow introduction of slowly adding the premium food to the regular and every time I would be left with a bowl of premium vittles at the bottom of the bowl that she would not eat.  I tried to just leaving the food there till she ate it anyway but she would hold out for 2 days and she lost 2lbs and when you weigh only 10lbs, 2lbs is a lot of body mass. 

Needles to say when I tried this food I was surprised that she ate it just like the vet said not because of taste but because she could not tell the diffrence in shapes form the junk that she was eating.  Apparently cats are not as finicky aw we think and they do like some variety in their food. 

A few changes in my cat since we made the change include:

Less shedding so that means less hairballs too!

Less Poop! So I get to Save on litter!

Poop is not smelly!  Woooo Whooo also saves on litter!

My cat plays like a Kitten again!  She seems to have more energy.

No more stinky Kitty breath!

No more begging for scraps!  She actually will not eat people food anymore.

The best thing though is that we cut out her "Rodent Lip" a painfull cold-sore like virus just like people, cats can get a version of their own cold-sores like people that is cuased by a form of the herpes virus.  Usually the cat will get a small cold and move on.  For a few cats the virus returns radonmly for the rest of thier lives.  We have been on the Nature's Best now for 2 years and she has only had "Rodent Lip" 3 times and only 1 time was it bad enough for the vet to see her.  Before the switch to Science Diet Nature's Best she would get "Rodent Lip" every two months and had to be taken to the vet everytime to get a cortisone shot and antibiotics because it would spread so fast into her sinus cavities.  Needles to say less vet trips saves me money but more importantly is that my cat is not in pain everyday.  Also using less cortisone and antibiotics is always healthier for any animal.

Peace,

AFP
