I have been using Science Diet Optimal Care Dry Cat Food for over 2 years now for my two cats. Most up most of importance other than how much my cats love the taste, is this cat food contains a lower level of magnesium than the cheaper brands of "supermarket" cat foods.I have had several cats in the past arise with urinary/urethra problems from feeding cheaper brand high sodium cat foods.Is why the very importance of the low magnesium levels in Optimal Care Dry Cat Food helps to prevent urethra problems, especially in male cats due to their more narrow urethra.I really have noticed how my cats coats went from course dull looking to shiny and silky soft.I have found that the price is pretty reasonable in comparison to other brands you find in the store or pet warehouse.Up most the quality of this cat food is definitely the best i have ever tried. Both my cats are nutritionally satisfied and the food goes a long way.I really love the small bite size of this cat food, and this is what my cats seem to love also. I won't feed anything else.I have fed other name brands of cat food to my two cats in the past and their was always problems with my cats spitting up / vomiting up of their food daily on our carpets.Since have switched to feeding my cats Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Dry Food, I have not once in the two years since I have switched to this food has this ever happen again.The Optimal Care is very gentle and easy for my cats to digest and helps with hair balls.Am very pleased with this cat food and will never ever switch or use any other product.I'm sold on this product!

Cats won't eat crumbs

For some reason, my two cats will only crunch the large chunks once, let the rest fall back into their bowl, and not eat the rest. I end of throwing half of it away. Although, for some reason these cats have gone off all Hill's products I have tried after eating one bag. They ate kitten food fine, switched to adult, then switched to prescription CD for urinary health, and they refused to eat any more of it, but acted hungry. And, they both did it at the same time. They will eat the Optimal but only the large chunks. It is a mystery to my vet, we've done gradual changes and tried everything. They do not get any other food (unless, I suspect, something in the neighborhood). After a severe weight loss, they are now up to weight but costing me way too much money in food. Who knows?

Our cat's fur is so shiny!


from St Cloud, MN, United States

We have used this food for a long time. I feel confident that we're giving him great nutrition, and he seems to like it really well. I also appreciate that it's not a food that stains our carpet when he unfortunately throws up.


I buy all my pet food from Peflow.

My cat Carina has been eating Science diet since she was 10 weeks old. She will be 22 years old April 29, 2017. I owe her longivity to eating Science diet food. Thank you so much.


One Happy Kitty


from Iowa, United States

Our cat absolutely loves this food. It keeps him active and healthy and we receive many compliments on how shiny and soft his fur is. We have been using Hill's products with our pets for over 15 years and would highly recommend them to anyone.




from Napa, CA.

The cats seemingly have quite a bit more energy. No sure if it's Spring or diet because they all have always received Science Diet foods, but we recently changed to Optimal care. Will continue to purchase. Science Diet makes a huge difference in our pets. Always have. Would never have started with SD but for the noticeable results in short order. Thanks. peace and love, always

Thankful for Science Diet


from Boise, Idaho, United States

Recently my cat became ill and stopped eating her normal food and began losing weight. After a visit to her vet I was on a mission to find a new replacement food that she would both enjoy and was healthy for her. I tried several different brands and then found and picked up a bag of Science Diet along with a couple cans of the wet food. When I brought the food home I grabbed a handful and held it in front of my girl and she ate right out of hand and asked for more, the way a cat does. She ate until she was clearly full. Now a few days later the change is absolutely amazing! She is bright eyed, playful, and simply happy again!


My Cat Loves This Stuff


from Portland, OR, United States

My two year old has been on this since she graduated from the kitten formula and she is so healthy and her coat so shiny that the vet wonders why I need to bring her in at all, other than her yearly checkup. Thank you for providing a product that I can have confidence in.


Finally, a pet food bag that seals!


from Mountain Ranch, CA

i have had pets for over 50 years and have used Science Diet for them for around 20 years. The last bag I bought has a Velcro closure once the bag is opened. Wow! Such a wonderful transformation! Such a great addition to a great pet food!
