Just curious to see who shares my opinion that Hill's Science Diet (SD) is a big scam. I think that some vets recommend it because they cut a deal with SD people. 2 of my cats became sick to their stomachs when I tried it. Then I read that the first two ingredients are corn products, and of the first five ingredients, three are corn. So I sent an email to the company asking them to explain how their product is superior when its main ingredient is corn (which is hard to digest, in fact), and why does it make my cats throw up? They sent be back the lamest, canned email that did nothing to answer my questions, all they did was insist that Science Diet is "proven", that it's the best, and quoted the statistics of how many vets recommend it. I replied that I was grateful that they gave me the final push I needed to not only swear off SD forever, but to pass on how terrible it is to everyone I know who owns a cat or dog. They didn't have anything to say to this, but GET THIS a couple of weeks later I get a coupon for a free bag of the SD that you can ONLY GET FROM YOUR VET. COINCIDENCE? I think not! Any other opinions on this?
