Guess what? For some reason, Science Diet Sensitive Stomach and Skin Cat Food seems to deter hair balls (I've never seen one produced by my indoor cat). Also, her teeth are beautiful - no tarter or discoloration or decay! I'm sold on this food!
I have four cats...one is allergic to poultry. No poultry in this product. Three out of four cats love this food. Two of my kitties are 17. One is now on canned food as for some strange reason she started throwing up after eating it in the last few months. She's on her last cat leg...sigh. My other 17 year old is doing great on it. I highly recommend this food!!!
My Cat has had a very sensitive stomach and Barfs up her food always, I thought it would work for my cat. What I read in the reviews it seems that Science Diet made a different kind for Just Sensitive Stomach that worked well I never tried it back then but maybe they should go back because this ONE DOES NOT WORK FOR MY CAT. help Please !! be
Marlon with irritable bowel enjoys this with no problems!

Marlon, fifteen years old, has irritable bowel syndrome. He is on Flagyl and prednisolone. He likes Hill's Science Diet Sensitive Stomiach & Skin Adult Cat Food and is able to tolerate it with no problems, when other foods upset his bowels. More than palatable, he enjoys this food, in addition to the wet canned food he tolerates. Finding this food was a boon for Marlon and Marlon's adopted brother, seventeen-year-old Zappy, likes it, too! Good one, Hill's!
My cat had been eating the Science Diet Sensitive Stomach, which I saw you no longer carried. So I ordered this instead. How big a difference could it be? Well, my cat is currently sulking. He walks by the bowl, MAYBE takes a bite, then walks off. We are hoping he will eat it if he gets hungry enough. Do not worry, he won't starve - He weighs 17lbs. But it is still very distressing.
I switched my [now] 2-year-old persian to dry food from raw when I got him from his breeder. I tried a grain-free competitor that was highly advertised (apparently I'm not allowed to mention specifics which I don't get) and after being on it for a month or so he started getting really bad diarrhea. I switched him to Science Diet Sensitive Stomach and the problem almost immediately went away. After awhile, I read some articles stating that cats really need a grain-free diet and foods that list rice as the first few ingredients are not ideal, so I thought I would try [same competitor as before but a different formula, and I was hesitant to do so] because "deboned chicken" was the first ingredient. Just like last time, after about a month or two, the diarrhea started up again. He was never sick once on Science Diet, so I am switching him back, and NEVER switching him again. I learned my lesson. I don't care what's in it as long as he eats it and it doesn't make him sick. This food is a MUST for cats that can't tolerate other food.
I know this product is a bit pricey but we have three cats ranging in age from 5 to 16, The two younger ones have 'sensitive' stomachs. We tried all kinds of different brands and formulations including the one recommended by our vet. They were constantly throwing up all over the house and nothing we tried seemed to help until we tried the S.D. Sensitive Stomach cat food. They liked the new food right from the beginning and thankfully it has solved the problem of constantly cleaning up messes. I would highly recommend that anyone with a similar problem give this food a try, It sure beats the alternative.
One of my three cats developed diarrhea. Tried medications over a 3 month period with no resolution. Then my vet recommended this food. Problem resolved. I was recently unexpectedly hospitalized. My friend didn't know the big box on the dining room table was from Petco and a repeat delivery of this food. Since the container for cat food was empty, it wss assumed there was no more so fed the cats dog food which resulted in 6 days of diarrhea for my sensitive cat - after only one day of dog food. This happens every time his food gets changed to anything else which is one of the reasons it is set up for repeat delivery. It would be better for him to go hungry rather than be given any other food!
I have 2 cats, 1 with a sensitive stomach and 1 that doesn't. I need a food that both would eat but the one with the sensitive stomach wouldn't through up. I tried every food under the sun and finally found this food and from the first day I haven't had any stomach issues and it has been 1 year since I started feeding my cats this food. I wouldn't feed them anything else.
We adopted our young adult cat Mia from the local shelter in late August. Hills's Science diet was the diet of choice from the shelter. Our cat is very healthy with a super glossy coat and shiny eyes. One problem, Mia had a sensitive stomach and vomitted once or twice a week. I ordered Hill's Science sensitive stomach food and mixed it 50/50 with the regular Hill's Science Adult Food. Problem solved! No more tummy issues.
My male cat just turned 9 yrs old and was recently diagnosed with pancreatitis after several days of throwing up and not eating. After his symptoms were alleviated through a combination of medications and IV fluids, my vet suggested switching his food from another brand's indoor formula to Science Diet Sensitive Stomach. While no one seems to know what causes pancreatitis or how to prevent flare-ups, this food seems to help keep the flare-ups to a minimum and has also reduced how often he throws up. I also have a female cat who I have switched to this food, and both seem to really like the taste. Although this food is about 3 times as expensive as my old brand, the cost is definitely worth the benefits.
