My vet recommended this food when our at the time 13 yr old cat was diagnosed with Kidney failure. He has been on this food and only this food ever since. I am pleased to say that he is now 15 yrs old and doing well. The vet is amazed at how well he is doing and we just now started giving him the Sub Q fluids once a week to help him. This food is the perfect size, our cat munches it right down and since he was a dry food only cat I was worried he might not like it...but he loves it.His stools are hard and all is well in Casa Land!
My vet wanted my 2 cats to lose weight and suggested feeding them a good canned food instead of dry. He said, think about it, cats are carnivores, and dry food is basically carbohydrate. So I tried it. On a diet of 1 can a day each, both of my cats (5 and 7 years) have dropped to a healthy weight and are so active, playing all the time, and no longer couch potatoes. I'm totally sold on Hills canned food.
This is a great canned food for my elderly cat. She is on prescription dry food and my Vet recommends supplementing that with a wet food in order to incorporate more moisture into the diet.(my cat will not eat the prescription canned food) She also recommends the lowest protein possible for older cats with potential kidney problems. My very picky cat enjoys the Salmon flavor, which at 7% protein is a good choice.
We always got the Hill's Science Diet Adult Savory Entrees Variety Pack...the cat loves it, but he was never a fan of the Salmon and finally wouldn't eat it at all. So, we just ordered the Savory Chicken and Gourmet Turkey by the case in the larger 5.5oz cans. The issue is (at least in these cases), the product is nothing like what is in the 3oz cans included in the Variety Packs. Exact same name, label, etc., but the food in the larger cans is very watery, courser and doesn't smell close to the same as what's in the other. Fails the ultimate test as well; He will not eat it at all... the Chicken or Turkey! After two days, we picked him up some dry food, he's eating that! Funny a case of 24 3oz cans are much more expensive than the 24 5.5oz cans...why would that be? Petco service is great, but this product fell far short of what we have gotten before from Hill's. Very disappointed!
After seeing this product so 'highly recommended' by 'vets everywhere' (they get paid to prescribe it, anyway!), I was disappointed by the ingredients list. It doesn't seem any better than brands sold at grocery/drugstores. By-products, corn, gluten, brewer's yeast, rice, soy- just way too many unnecessary ingredients cats don't need! At least it does contain real meat which I gave 2 stars for, the generic store brands don't even have that.
I was leery about trying the turkey and giblets cat food, as I wasn't sure what my finicky felines would do. Well, they love it! They gobble it up. They start going crazy as soon as they get a whiff of the stuff when I open the can. Good stuff!
My female cat loves nothing but this brand/flavor - Hill's Science Diet's Liver and Chicken. Other two male cats share the portion that she did not eat - she keeps her excellent shape to become Miss Florida.
Neither of my two cats will eat this product. It's a pureed food, not the 'grilled' type with gravy they prefer and what I thought "Savory entree" described. Had I known the product was pureed, I would not have purchased it.
I guess i did not pay attention when I was ordering and was surprised when theses tiny little one serviing cans arrived. For some reason my kitty will l not eat out of the tiny cans. I generally put her food in a dish and when I did that with the smaller cans (took food out of can put in dish) she will not eat the food. I tried to open the can and mix it up in the can and give it to her that way and she would not eat it, I gave the straight can and she would not eat it. I have no idea what's up but I will go back to the regular size cans and see if she's happy. Sorryl
