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!

It's strange - There are a lot of positive reviews here but neither of my cats like this food at all. They like other Science Diet dry food but not this one; they turn their noses up at it.

One of the cats - She's been throwing up every time she eats it, and her stool and vomit have a small amount of blood in them. Yes, we transitioned the old cat food to the new.

I'm going back to another Science Diet dry food.

Comments about Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original Dry Cat Food:

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

      By Happy Cat Mama

      from Boise, Idaho, United States

      Comments about Hill's Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original Dry Cat Food:

      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!
