emily w.

just curious if anyone else has had problems with science diet? my roommate's 2 male cats have to eat it because of urinary blockages, but it doesn't really seems to be that great of a food...i have a 14 year old cat that gets bladder infections so she eats it too...and my 2 year old cat has to eat whatever the boys eat...
i will be moving out of the house at the end of this month and will be switching both my cats to natural balance...i've used that food in the past and liked it a lot...i'm curious to see if anyone knows information on science diet causing health problems...i can't really seem to find any info on-line about it! thanks!!!

I've heard science diet is full of fillers like corn. But as to health problems I'm not sure of that. Natural Balance is a good brand.

My two boys have eaten this for years and years and have been doing well...First we had the urinary problem type and then we switched to the diabetic formula (which is also suitable for the crystals problem) as a better choice for our more recently (and more severely) diabetic cat.

With only 4% of cats becoming diabetic, what are the odds that our two both would be?? But so far, Science Diet has done fine for them.
