From time to time, we get a kitty in the shelter with a sensitive stomach and have found this formula helpful in controlling their issues.
by susie58 on 07/09/2016
One of my 2 cats was having loose stools and vomiting, with all of the hair consumed from grooming his stomach was upset. Did some research and determined he may need a mild formula with extra fiber. The change in diet was notable immediately - we now use lamb and rice sensitive stomach instead of chicken and rice formula.

Changing my Kitties over to Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach was the easiest change I've made, they absolutely love it and their coats are shinier and the food is the best for their tummys. Thanks Pro Plan!
by kmemjb on 06/18/2016
Mr. Catnip suffers from sensitive skin. I have seen a nice improvement since putting him on this diet.
by pattymink on 06/06/2016
This product has really improved my cats skin. Her coat is beautiful.
by rozey on 06/01/2016
Our cats enjoy this flavor (lamb and rice) and also have less hairball and indigestion issues while on it. Added bonus is the nice silky coats they get!

They have pancreatitis and everything upsets their stomachs. But hey hold this down!
by jen15 on 05/03/2016
We had a bag of this food donated to us and used it for one of our foster kitties who needed a health boost. After eating this food, we noticed an improvement in not only the way she looked but also in her litter box. This product was a great help!
by Rhea on 05/01/2016
been using this food once my cat started to scratch and vomit sometimes and it has help her
by yes Debbie on 04/16/2016
There were a few cats I have had that had sensitve stomachs and would often get sick after eating kibble so I decided to try this product and they have not been getting sick at all to date.
by cats15 on 04/10/2016
I started my sickly cat (he has FIV, so his immune system is very weak) on this food about a month ago, and he loves it! Before, he was sluggish and antisocial, and he was losing a lot of weight. Now he's putting the weight back on, he's frisky and playful, and it's just so obvious to me that he feels so much better. Thank you for giving me my cat back!
by RTussing14 on 03/30/2016
We tried several products for our cats--one cat has a sensitive stomach and the other sensitive skin. This ProPlan formula works for both of them and we don't have to watch to make sure they don't eat out of the other's bowl.
by Axe and Winston on 03/23/2016
my older kitty was recovering from a urinary tract infection. His didn't seem to want to eat his usual Pro Plan chicken and rice so we figured his stomach was just not right.
so we tried lamb and rice..perfect! He regained his desire to eat and love the flavor. we now mix the two and everything is great!
by Goldenlady on 03/16/2016
I have a 2 year old cat that after about a year starting having a skin issue. We could not figure out what was causing her to want to eat herself raw. I came across a deal on this cat food and decided to give it a try. After 1 bag, all of her skin has grown back and she has stopped trying to chew herself. Magical! That is the only word I can say about this great product! It is like having a whole new cat because of this! Highly recommended.
by alibell721 on 03/11/2016
My cat loves his dry food! He stopped vomiting after eating when we started this diet.
by KellieR77463 on 03/08/2016
WE have a kitty that has digestive issues and we tried the sensitive formula with him and so far he is doing well on it. We are keeping our fingers crossed.
by katfncy on 03/03/2016
We almost lost our four year old Siamese to pancreatitis and liver failure. She is no longer vomiting and has regained all of her lost weight. All three of my cats love this food. We tried various products while she was recovering including some even more expensive. This was the best one. She loves it and she keeps it down!
by LisaP on 02/27/2016
My cat suffers from allergies and vomits often. Eating this food has really cut down on her vomiting and itchiness!!
by Sam I Am on 02/24/2016
I have two cats with sensitive stomachs and I bought this a few weeks ago and they have had a better appetite and less throwing up.
by mleonhardt on 02/05/2016
I switched from Hills to Pro Plan Focus and I am so happy I did. My cat loves it and she has much less stomach upset!
by Joanne425 on 01/07/2016
My Sweetpea was constantly throwing up & upon a visit to the vet, found out she now has a very sensitive stomach. I've switched her to this formula and she is 100% better!
by Susan55 on 01/06/2016
I had a bag recently donated for a cat in our rescue which had really bad skin issues, after two weeks of feeding this food you could really see an improvement.
by Adopt4lovepets on 01/06/2016
As a person who works in rescue and comes across kitties with different ages and medical issues I find this product the best overall for all of them.
by diamond_tigeress64 on 12/31/2015
We are trying this on a kitty with sensitivities. She loves the tast. Hope it shows in her health!
by Daisybob on 12/28/2015
Our cats love the taste of it, one never has been a dry food eater but since switching them to Focus he gobbles his dry food and turns his nose up to the canned food.
by cyakita on 11/04/2015
This is the only dry good my cat can eat without getting sick. Unfortunately my Petsmart only carries, small and super large bags of it and I have to travel a distance to get ,t.
by taracatt on 10/20/2015
I bought this for outdoor cat and she loves it. It has also softened the feel of her fur.
by Mel74 on 10/10/2015
I have a 15 tr old siamese, normal weight is about 14 lbs. He was very very sick for months, *00 in testes to find out he had 3 different viruses going on. Vet placed him on an expensive Rx formula from a competitor. Well, when your feeding 5 cats it hets expensive fast!. I decided after a month to try this and now he is after 6 months back to his normal weight. All 5 have beautiful coats, oh and no more furballs!
by michelled on 09/09/2015
I picked up ProPlan Sensitive Stomach HERRING and Rice instead of LAMB and Rice. I know. My bad. But I'd opened the bag before noticing my error, I can't return it, my cat is diabetic and I cannot change her diet, I'm a senior on a fixed income, I've just wasted $30, will have to replace the bag, and this month my cat eats whilst I scrimp. The packaging is so similar. I feel a fool.
by Cricket Song on 08/29/2015
We use this for all our adult rescued cats, that come into our sanctuary with bowel upsets or food allergies..... This lamb/rice is easy to digest and helps to cool down any intestinal upsets.
by joan123 on 08/06/2015
I try to stay away from seafood based products due to high protein levels and this product is great.
by DavidA on 08/04/2015
One of our cats had problem with patches of fur falling out. After 2 weeks of supplementing his diet with this, the improvement was quite noticeable.
by rotex910 on 07/21/2015
Am very happy to be serving this readily accepted food to my 4 felines of different ages: 11, 9 years & twin boys 14 months. I'm still unhappy w/the large bag access. Am wondering if there is any headway on pkg. access? I have reported this before quite a few months ago.
by MULTIKITTY MOM on 07/14/2015
I have several cats who are picky eaters with sensitive stomachs and they love this product.
by Cathy on 07/10/2015
We tried this on one of our adoptable cats who had a sensitive tummy. No vomitting on this food.
by tapps5 on 06/13/2015
Nothing's worse than a cat with constant belly troubles... this has been a life saver for some of the more troublesome felines. Highly recommended for the cats who just can't seem to calm the tummy.
by diruff on 05/18/2015
One of the cats I adopted had always had trouble keeping her food down. I was cleaning something up at least once a day. I switched her to Sensitive Skin and Stomach and three weeks later we have had no problem since.
by Tia L on 05/17/2015
Have been feeding my cats Lamb & Rice for over 30 years and 4+ cats (Eucanuba-sorry). It's been 2 years since I could purchase the Eucanuba and have been searching cat food. Many brands they wouldn't even eat; others they ate but didn't really like. They have been really enjoying their food since I found this last week. I thank you and CC & Sami thank you.
by samiccmom on 05/08/2015
We used this with a special needs cat and had no problems and he loved it
by lizs on 05/06/2015
I have a cat who tends to throwup her food after eating. This helped her.
by RescueMe on 04/16/2015
If this is adertised as sensitive stomach it should be poultry free -- but it is not. Disappointed
by catsontheriver on 04/06/2015
We have a rescue that had terrible diarrhea. This has cleared him up
by annb on 03/26/2015
I bought this cat food for my cat to give it a try and so far so good! He was Currently on a hypoallergic food that was crazy expensive to see if he has a food allergy, hoping he can handle this food and I see no reaction.
I hope this line will eventually come out with a canned food because my kitty loves his canned food and I hate that he's only eating dry currently.
by siameseluv on 03/25/2015
We have a few senior kitties that recently were going through digestive issues. Putting them on the Focus Adult Sensitive Skin and Stomach resolved the issues within 2 weeks! The kitties are feeling much better with more energy! What a great change.
by Catmomma7 on 03/24/2015
After learning my cat had developed an allergy to chicken. It was almost impossible to find a cat food that the first ingredient was chicken. Was so glad I found this Sensitive skin and Stomach Lamb and Rice formula. My cat loves it!!!
by TSZEEKS on 03/23/2015
Two of my cats - one a senior and the other a youngster - suffered from frequent vomiting, occasional diarrhea. After ruling out any underlying medical problems, I first tried I/D but became frustrated with their lack of interest and efforts to eat it. I tried Focus Sensitive as soon as it came on the market, and they took to it immediately. My two other "normal" cats also like it - so it works for all of them. The diarrhea problem is long gone - and no more vomiting. I do hope NestlePurina keeps this formulation - I would be in a tough spot if it was not longer available!
by ChesterBaxter on 03/23/2015
Prior to trying Pro Plan Focus Sensitive Skin and Stomach Lamb & Rice, I frequently had a problem with several of my cats vomiting their food. I thought I would give it a try. It has settled their stomach and it's much easier for them to digest. They're happy because the love the food and they're feeling better. I'm happy because I'm not cleaning up the messes anymore. Thank you, Purina!
by Stray Haven on 03/16/2015
We have a couple cats who suffer from IBS and have sensitive stomachs to boot.
We find mixing this food into their dry really helps attracts them to eat !
by LaraG on 03/04/2015
Our kitties that have digestive issues are glad to have this product.
by Lumpy on 03/01/2015
I have a rescue cat Boru who has a sensitive stomach and sensitive skin, you food is the only one he can eat consistently and he LOVES IT!
by Boru on 03/01/2015
My cat has been on several foods and she couldn't seem to digest them very well so I talked to someone that knew about animals and gave him her symptoms and he said try this and my cat loves it and she has been on it a year or a little over and has only vomited once with a small hairball. Even all her hairball have disappeared. She is one happy kitty!
by Gab7 on 02/22/2015
We are thrilled to be able to use the same food local shelters and the PetSmart habitat uses to help cut down on any gastrointestinal issues that often crop up after rescuing/fostering a cat!
by LindaB on 02/13/2015
This food really helps reduce vomitting in cats. We've also noticed a difference in our cat's skin condition and coat since using this product.
by Theresa1967 on 01/20/2015
We have a rescue cat that has a very sensitive stomach and would not tolerate certain foods. Since being on this product she has show a lot of improvement and seems to enjoy life better.
by FurEver on 12/11/2014
We have been feeding both wet and dry food to our two Siamese and have noticed a world of difference in their appearance and behavior. We had been feeding a very expensive prescription diet before.
by Joan Birchler on 11/27/2014
My cat's hot spots have gone away since feeding this product.
by Corina on 10/27/2014
Buddy, being an older cat, has become quite sensitive and gets an upset stomach quite frequently. I tried other cat food recommended by my vetinarian, but Buddy would not eat it, also being a picky cat. He seems to love the Pro-Plan Focus food and tolerates it extremely well. It is the only one I will buy now!
by Buddymom on 09/29/2014
We adopted a cat from a shelter in MA 3 weeks ago. The shelter is very lucky in that Purina donates the food, ProPlan. Big Paws Up, Purina, you rock! My other, older cat, has digestive issues. We bought Purina ProPlan because we didn't want to disrupt our new cat's digestive system with a new food on top of a new change in home. We selected sensitive skin and stomach to help my older cat. They are both thriving! My older cat prefers this to the Blue Buffalo food we were feeding him. They are both digesting the food well and both have gorgeous, silky fur. I highly recommend this product.
by Lisa46 on 09/27/2014
Two of my cats were recently diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Disease. My vet suggested trying a sensitive stomach food or else they would have to eat prescription. Tried this food. It's wonderful. No more vomiting and they have both gained back the weight they lost. Love this product
by cven144 on 09/26/2014
The cats love this special formula for sensitive skin and digestion! It is easy on their system and they seem to really love the flavor!
by Marilyn5 on 09/25/2014
This is the only food that I have found that Sugar doesn't get sick on. I have tried other Sensitive System foods, but this one is the only one that she can eat.
by csr2rules on 09/19/2014
Our 10 year old kitty was becoming more & more sensitive to her foods. We switched her to this Pro Plan sensitive skin & stomach and it had a wonderful affect on her. She now eats happily & her issues with digesting and keeping food down has noticeably reduced.
by SophiasMom on 09/17/2014
My cats have been on pro plan for 14 yrs. and they love it and I wouldn't change for anything
by sheila20 on 09/14/2014
I am so happy to find a healthy food that my cats love.
by michellena on 09/13/2014
My cats and my foster cats love this food! I feel good about giving this to all of them!
by Lori on 09/12/2014
My cat, kit KAT, has lots of stomach issues. This is the only cat food that he can tolerate.
by Finnla on 09/12/2014
My cat had very sensitive skin. From the time she was born she kept sores on her. I couldn't find any thing to help. I finally changed my cat's food to Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach formula.
by pamela36 on 09/12/2014
From the day I brought little 4 pound, 7 month old Emily home, she would eat her dry food, or wet food, it didn't matter, and 20 minutes later would vomit. It was obvious she was reacting to the food and it didn't matter which brand I tried, including the prescription brands. I believe it was the reason she was surrendered to the Michigan Humane Society in the first place. After all, it's not fun cleaning up vomit piles several times a day. Finally, I thought I would try the Pro Plan that was being used in the PetSmart Luv-A-Pet adoption center where I volunteered. It has been 7 years now since I switched to the Sensitive Skin & Stomach formula and Emily no longer gets sick after she eats. She has gained weight and the other 2 cats she shares the house with don't seem to mind it either. I love the fact that Pro Plan comes in many different varieties to meet many needs. My son even remarked that he felt their coats were much softer and I believe they are shedding less. I have recommended Purina Pro Plan to many people and credit it for allowing Emily to be the healthy, happy kitty she is today.
I also feed the Pro Plan Chicken & Rice Kitten formula to the foster kittens I take care of because I feel it gives them the very best chance to grow up strong and healthy. It would be less expensive to use the Purina Kitten Chow, which is a good product, but after seeing how great my own cats have done on the Pro Plan, I feel it's the best choice for the kittens in my care. I definately recommend the brand to the new pet parents when the babies go to their forever homes.
by MIkittymomma on 09/11/2014
I have bought every dry bag brand of cat food for my cat Midnite. She was sensitive to it as vomiting and loose stools always occurred. I was at the end of my rope so thought I would try this kind and voila! It works! She is very satisfied and happy! So am I! Thank you!
by caroljbolio on 09/11/2014
I started my rescue cat, Boo, on this product as soon as he came home with me. He had a bit of dandruff and his fur was on the dry side. I didn't notice the change right away but realized after a couple of months that his fur had become silky smooth and no more noticable white flakes. Our newest rescue has long black fur and the quality of his coat has improved as well, since he came to live with us. Our older cat who has a sensitive tummy had problems with other brands for sensitive stomachs, but thse have cleared up since she started on Pro Plan. It's wonderful that I no longer have to try to feed my gang separately - they are all thriving on this blend.
by kiefer53 on 09/11/2014
Tony was having stomach problems, and had been vomiting quite a bit. I could not find a food that he would eat and not vomit until I. Found sensitive skin and stomach. After months eating this food Tony no longer vomits often. Matter of fact he very seldom vomits any more.
by Audrey on 09/11/2014
All my cats love hard to find one that works for all.
by april on 09/11/2014
My cat is allergic to chicken and scratches all of his fur off when he eats it. ProPlan Lamb and Rice is the only food that contains no chicken and my Cat loves the taste and has all of his fur.
by iamdopey on 09/11/2014
Kaylee, my snow bengal has had colitis all her life. Vet prefered to have it controlled by diet, when she was younger and I continue to do the same.She has been on a few different brands, none of which she was very fond of.The stuff she did like made her sick. This is the first time in 11 years that she likes the food and it does not make her sick.
by catara52 on 09/11/2014
Nine cats can't be wrong, including the finicky ones. One of my cats has a sensitivity to poultry products (soft stool problem) so I have to limit his poultry intake. Luckily the other eight had no problem switching to Lamb and Rice from Chicken and Rice. This particular cat is very finicky and would not eat the other brands of low-poultry or poultry-free food that was offered. Everyone is happy with soft, flake free coats.
by Mom of nine on 09/11/2014
All of my cats eat Pro Plan food but I have a special kitty with an IBS disorder.
He is very limited on what he can safely eat. Pro Plan sensitive stomach is a life saver. It does not upset his stomach and he loves it. It works well with his medication.
by Deb Adams on 09/11/2014
I have a little tortoise shell kitty who has a sensitive tummy and this Pro Plan Dry food for Sensitive Stomachs works out perfect for her.
by Phyllis B on 09/11/2014
I have a cat who cannot eat any type of dry cereal without throwing up. I saw the Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach and decided to try one more time. Amazingly, he can eat this brand and does not get sick plus my other three cats love it. He seems to really love the taste of it because he is always eating on it. I am so glad I decided to try one more cereal. I will never feed him anything but this dry cereal. Thank you Pro Plan.
by CatLover4 on 09/11/2014
Was only food that helped my Persian with hairball issues. Tried many others that had no preservatives or by-products and he still had problems with diarrhea and not wanting to eat when had hairball. My Calico does well on it too. Recently switched to the Herring version of this food. Hope it helps as well.
by cjholc on 09/11/2014
My Bengal cat eats ONLY your lamb-based 'sensitive skin/stomach'...not because he has ANY skin or stomach issues, but because lamb is the singularly most important ingredient for my cat's nutrition an well-being. Thx to ProPlan, I have an extremely healthy, happy, playful cat. Don't ever stop making lamb the foremost ingredient in this product! You're the ONLY company that provides this top-notch formula.
by punky on 09/11/2014
My foster kitty Oliver has suffered for years with food sensitivity and so I decided to try Pro Plan. Oliver loves his new food and he seems to be tolerating it very well.
by Esther on 09/10/2014
This is the go to food when new incomers come in, that way it helps with the tummies from switching foods. The cats like the taste and flavor from this food.
by limerdelta on 09/09/2014
Not bought for sensitive stomach issue but another great flavor to try
by Lorie on 09/06/2014
My one cat has a very sensitive stomach and would often throw up the previous brand. We switched her to ProPlan Sensitive Stomach and she not only loves it but it completely settled her stomach down as lamb was easier for her to digest!
by KittyJunction on 09/05/2014
The vet said my cat had a food allergy since all his itchiness was around his face and head. They recommended a hypoallergenic cat foot that cost $60 for a 10 lb bad!! It did not do anything! I tried this brand based on my sister's recommendation (she worked at a pet store) and miraculously he is not itchy and acting more like a cat! LOVE this product!
by JCoryea on 08/06/2014
I have a 5 yr old white long hair persian cat. She has a very light, pink, skin and is very sensitive to food and sunlight. I have had her on every prescription food that was made with varying results, most not that good. I did a little internet research and came across Focus - Sensitive Skin & Stomach formula. I thought that there was no way that this comparatively inexpensive food would help my cat's skin problem, since the most expensive prescription foods did little to help her. I tried the food and first of all she loved it and immediately wanted more. I noticed an improvement in her digestion and bowel movements. I also noticed a marked improvement in her skin in about a week and it continued to get better each week. Now 6 months later, she has gained several (much needed) pounds of weight and her skin and coat are both beautiful. She has had no problems of any kind since we started her on this food regimen and I would recommend this food product to any cat lover who has a cat with sensitive skin.
by Cajunron on 05/15/2014
I bought this for my Ragdoll boy who was throwing up way too much. Â My vet suggested changing him from a poultry based food to lamb. Â I found this Pro Plan Lamb and ordered it. Â It has now been three weeks and his vomiting has been drastically reduced and for the first time in years, his stools are firm. Â The rest of my Ragdolls eat a variety of foods, including Focus Indoor Turkey & Rice. Â Since my sensitive tummy boy is retiring soon and will probably join the rest of the crowd, I may transition everyone else to just Pro Plan too. Â My boy's coat has improved as well. Â Now, if only you made a lamb canned food to go with the dry...
by RagdollMom on 03/12/2014
I was feeding my cat blue buffalo and it wasn't agreeing with her. So I thought I would try pro plan and she feels so much better. She has got soooo much energy! She has been playing a lot!
by Gabby01 on 02/23/2014
My male Ragdoll (Mister Blue) has very sensitive skin and stomach. Â He was over a year old when I got him, and I was feeding rest of my herd, including 2 other Ragdolls, Purina One Hairball Formula. Â They all have hairball issues from time to time. Â Mr. Blue was still throwing up a lot, so I switched to ProPLan Â Sensitive Stomach. Â This worked wonders for the vomiting, but hairballs were still an issue. Â I now feed a combination of Pro Plans Sensitive Stomach, Pro Plan Hairball Formula, and Pro PlanLong Coat Formula, Â I have since adopted another older Ragdoll, a retired breeder, Victoria. Â The Ragdolls, Maine Coon and all of my various mixed breeds & alley cats, all love the food and are doing quite well. Â Even the short haired ones have soft, silky fur. Â The vomiting and fur balls are no longer a big issue. Â
by Phyl on 02/06/2014
I have always purchased ProPlan Dog food. When I started having foster cats and three of them had severe hair loss and one very bad stools,I purchased ProPlan sensitive skin and stomach. Over a period of time their fur grew back and the one cat started having normal stools.After leaving the rescue I kept all my foster cats,now everybody loves eating the food and they all have beautiful shiny fur.
by hmp15 on 01/14/2014
I have a cat with a very sensitive stomach. I have tried numerous products, wet and dry. I have fed Pro Plan now for a week and he is keeping it down so far. I am very happy and so is Andy, my cat. I hope that it continues! It is pricey, but if it works, I will cut corners to buy this product. Sure would be nice to find some coupons for this product now and then. Thank you, Kathy and Andy
by KDmusic on 11/23/2013
My cat Henry had dandruff issues and he shed quite a lot. He sometimes also had problems at the litter box. He had been eating the Purina One line of food since he was a kitten. And last year I started giving him one can a day of the Purina Pro Plan wet foods (which he loves). But the dandruff started getting a bit worse and the fur on his back was very coarse. So I looked over the food options when I went to get him a fresh bag. I spotted the Lamb in the Sensitive Skin and Stomach Formula and thought I would give it a go. He LOVES this food! And just half way through the bag, the dandruff is not even an issue and his fur is softer than ever! I'm not even sure he was this soft when he was a kitten! I'm recommending this to all my friends.Â
by Saralee5891 on 05/19/2013
My cats are 10 years old and have been eating Authority cat food since they were kittens. Â One of my cats has always thrown up more than the other but in the last few months she has actually started throwing up every time I fed her. She lost a lot of weight and her skin became dry and she began losing hair. My cousin who is a vet told me I had to change her food. I was in the pet store for over an hour reading labels when the sales lady recommended Proplan Â for send active skin and stomachs. AMAZING! No more puking, she has energy, no more dander, and her hair is growing back! AND both my cats love it! THANK YOU!
by Robin on 05/04/2013
We recently took in a stray, possibly lost cat, who we found outside under our porch in -20 degree weather, she was so thin and terrified. We took her in (even though we already had 3 cats), gave her a warm loving home and obviously began feeding her the same food our cats were used to (Friskies seafood sensations and rise & shine). As we made her one of our family we continue to look for her original owners, seeing as she was spayed and declawed (i do not like that she is declawed). Her stomach could not handle the regular food, and she would throw up constantly, i am not sure if it was an allergy or just the fact that she has a sensitive stomach. Since we purchased Pro Plan, Adalynn has not had any Â puking incidents. And now all four of our cats are eating Pro Plan. Highly recommended product! i plan to continue purchasing this product, and possibly let my kitties try the soft food and treats also :)
