Is works great!

I bought the formula for hair balls since my older cat seems to be having more problems with them lately. Not only does he love this food, it has helped tremendously with his hairball problem. I would highly recommend this product! by on 07/09/2016

They will eat it!

Decided to try something new, the kitties seem to like it. Due to price will probably be a treat rather than a regular diet by on 07/06/2016

19 Years strong this summer

My two feral rescues started on pro plan 19 years ago this summer. They came to me as sick and sorry little things around 8 weeks old. Half starved, my vet recommended to try pro plan kitten formula, since my other one year old (passed at 18 years) cat was already on pro plan (at the time it was just chicken and rice). So, all three started eating pro plan kitten. It wasn't long before the youngsters were happy shiny healthy cats! Fast forward to yesterday, my SingSing's dental appointment - they run a senior lab profile just to make sure he's good. My vet calls today. She is amazed at how healthy this guy is. All his labs and bloodwork come back right in healthy ranges. We switched to the lower protein formula about three years ago, and they are doing fine on it. I told the vet, I have to credit the food (as well as annual vet checkups) with their health. 19 is a long life for a cat who has been indoor - outdoor since their rescue! My two new rescues (one year) are guessed it. A pro plan diet! I tell everyone to try it. its worth the extra couple bucks - they eat less because its good food, and you'll have a long healthy life cat! by on 02/05/2016

Works well

This food has helped with the hairball problem a lot which I love. But why would you dye this particular food orange?? When my cats do inevitably get sick it has RUINED my carpet. Please fix this problem. by on 05/21/2015

When it comes to cleaning himself since he was a kitten too !! Noww ..I.don't have to worry about SOO-SOO MANY "HAIRBALLS" AROUND MY HOUSE NOW !! THANK-YOU VERY-VERY MUCH TOO !! :-) :-) by on 09/23/2014
Very small kibble working out great for my 17 y.o.

Tigger, our 17 year old barn cat was treated by his vet 2 mo. ago for a bad gum abscess. He gets both dry and canned, but needed smaller kibble. I called Purina and they were very helpful. He loves the ProPlan and eats it readily. Even with his gum/dental problems, he is able to eat it without problems. The Purina One he was on before had larger flat disc kibble. He did not want to eat it. He has gained weight and is doing great! Our vet is pleased with his progress. by on 09/13/2014
A healthy food my cats love!

I started purchasing the Pro Plan brand of dry food a couple of years ago when my vet encouraged me to give my cats a higher protein food. I was a bit worried if they would like it- they had been on their old food quite awhile. They loved it from the start, and it is the only dry food I buy now. It is worth the extra money and the trip to the pet store to purchase it knowing that my cats are getting nutritious food that's vet approved! by on 09/13/2014
our 2 kitties Dante and Elvis just love the taste

This product has been an exellent food for our kitties.We rarely have any issues with hairballs so its obviously working well.They love the taste and their coats are shiny and soft.. by on 09/13/2014

I have been buying this cat food for both Lucky and Morgan for years and have been very satisfied with the product, and it does seem to reduce the number of hairballs either cat gets. by on 09/12/2014
100% Satisfaction!

After an intense issue with hairballs, I switched to the ProPlan Focus Hairball formula. My finicky girl absolutely loves it. This product absolutely delivers regular elimination habits and NO MORE HAIRBALLS by on 09/12/2014

I decided to try this after having issues with both of my adult cats throwing up their food and hairballs all the time. Boy am I glad I did! They both seem to be able to keep this down and I dont find that I am cleaning up hairballs and throw up all the time! by on 09/12/2014
Very Helpful

My 12 yr old 3rd generation Cross Breed Wildcat has Digestion and Hairball problems. She is on Pro Plan wet food as of 6 yrs ago. She is fed a mixture of Hill's Science Optimum Care & Sensitive Stomach Formula's and Pro Plan Hairball Control. All together, she loves her dry food, too. Hairball's are few. by on 09/12/2014
Helps my cat's hairballs!

I've had my cat on Pro Plan Focus Hairball Management Adult Chicken & Rice Formula mixed with Pro Plan Savor Adult Chicken & Rice Formula for almost a year now and she is doing wonderful on it! She has really long hair and she had horrible hairballs before and now she rarely has any. I'm really happy with Pro Plan Focus Hairball Management Adult Chicken & Rice Formula as it has helped a lot with her hairballs. by on 09/12/2014
Great reaction from the cats

We leave bowls of food out all the time. The cats will "snack" through out the day. Love the hairball formula. Helps cut down the problem. by on 09/12/2014
Great product

I bought this for my cat and although I don't like trying new products, she absolutely loved it. Thanks for a really good product promoting health and having a taste cats love. by on 09/11/2014
From a crazy cat lady

I have six cats, including a 19-year-old female who has, for most of her life, inhaled her food at warp speed and redeposited half of it on the carpet several times a week. This food has provided a noticeable reduction in that problem, plus she is in great shape for her age. She has a nice coat and good muscle tone. My other five cats are also beautiful with healthy coats, good energy levels and at appropriate weights. I will always feed ProPlan. by on 09/11/2014

My kitty INHAILED this! I wish I could read her mind and find out why she loved it...but she attacked it like she had not eaten in days.! So...I'd say she LOVES it! by on 09/11/2014
Working Well

Seems to be helping their problem with throwing up hairballs. by on 09/11/2014
Purina family

Our cats only eat Purina dry cat food. Tarzan has long hair and a very sensitive stomach. Additionally he has allergies and asthma. Hairball formula gets mixed with regular Purina Cat Chow. The company stands behind their products! by on 09/11/2014
Works great for hair all management.

I have used this product for several years and my cats digestive systems have no problems with hair balls. Their coats are nice and shiny and soft. by on 09/11/2014
Pro-Plan Hair Ball

Both our cats like it. I started to buy it to fight hairball problems but now they prefer it to any other dry food. It lloks like better quality product than cheaper analogs. by on 09/11/2014
Purrrrfectly Delicious!

A bit pricey, but it is the only dry cat food my Maggie will eat. I'm not particularly fond of the bag. The product seemed to stay fresher longer when it was sold in containers. Also, the bag is too big and bulky to store in a cabinet. It is necessary to divide the product into two tightly sealed containers for storage and discard the bag. by on 09/11/2014
Our cat Loves this food

She won't eat any canned food but love pro plan hairball food by on 09/11/2014
Both cats love their Pro Plan

My two cats have been eating this since they were kittens, 5 and 6 yrs old now. They have been healthy and happy. Both very active and playful. by on 09/11/2014
Lily & Bella love Proplan's Hairball Management dr

Lily, a Norwegian Forest cat, belongs to my housemate and was eating Science Diet when I got Bella, a Maine Coon cat. I have been a fan of ProPlan for many years, but this is the first time I've had long hair cats. I switched them both to your product and they love it. Lily no longer has hairballs, like she did on the Science Diet food. by on 09/11/2014
Mini kitty appropiate

My Duchass is a small kitty, with thick hair. The size of the dry food pieces are perfect for her. She does not struggle when she eats it. She is a very clean kitty also, so grooming is important to her. The hairball formula is important to me so that I don't come home to 'little packages'. by on 09/11/2014
Amazingly good diet!

I've been feeding this diet for years. Possibly since it was first introduced. My bachelors degree is in Animal Science, and as such, I've had many a class on animal nutrition. I chose this diet myself based on high protein content (cats are obligate carnivores - i.e. protein is key!), quality ingredients and long time trust in Purina. My choice was bolstered by a DVM friend's "blessing". Any DVM who truly understands the unique nutritional needs of the domestic cat loves this diet. Additionally, Purina has done more research, for longer than any other pet food manufacturer out there. Hands down. Why would you feed something from a 'Johnny Come Lately'? My cats LOVE this food. Love it! Can't get enough of it! I feed hairball formula because it has just a little bit more fiber (not too much), thereby making "nice stools" and yes, cutting back on hairball upchucking. Pudgy or slender, old or young, all my cats are healthy, have shiny coats and seem very satisfied with Pro Plan. That makes me satisfied too! by on 09/11/2014
adult chicken and rice

Glover please resend reply.

Couldn't open ur reply. Please resend. I had min schnauzers on pro plan for 20+yrs and cats on pro plan for 8yrs. ร‚ย Prices go up often. Even with pet perks it's expensive for 3 cats. ร‚ย My long hair Siamese has sensitive stomach so this brand us the best for her. As u can see I'm a long time customer. Thank you.ร‚ย  by on 02/06/2014
Love this diet!

I have three cats, two shorthair and one medium hair. The one with medium hair length is also a bit picky when it comes to food. I mix two foods, just to keep it interesting for all the kitties(and to get some kitten food into my youngest right now). I used to switch up the types of hairball control food I used to keep my picky cat's interest. I was mixing it with grain-free food at the time to cut back on carbs and increase the overall protein since a lot of hairball foods have a little lower protein. I was using the Iams hairball control and found out part way through the bag that my picky cat wasn't eating the hairball control food hardly at all, which explained why she'd been getting more hairballs. I decided to try ProPlan (after recently hearing about the brand), and all three of my cats love the hairball management from ProPlan. My medium haired cat hasn't had a hairball since she's been on the ProPlan. I might try mixing it with the Finesse line or the Savor line of ProPlan to still keep the picky one interested. by on 09/17/2013
Big difference!

My cat was on another hairball control formula, and it seemed to be working just fine. My vet recommended Pro Plan, though, so I thought I would try it. After just a couple of weeks it was more than obvious how great it was working! My cat had softer, shinier, thicker hair and not a single hairball. He seemed to trim down a little, too, and even his eyes looked brighter. My dad even commented, and he doesn't even acknowledge my cat's existance. Plus, he absolutely loves the taste. I wholeheartedly recommend it! by on 03/06/2013
