Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom1 Won't Eat Prescription Food
My cat has Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD) and was prescribed Royal Canine Select Protein diet. I tried the canned and dry food in duck, rabbit, and venison flavors and she would not eat any of it. I tried the Science Diet Z/Z and Z/D and she would not eat that either. I tried the Hydrogenated dry food and she wouldn't get within a foot of it. I was slowing watching her starve herself rather than eat any of this food. After much research on my on, I picked up two cans of the Blue Buffalo Basic Duck and Potato and she snarfed it down. I immediately went back to Petsmart and picked up mare canned and a bag of the dry. This is the only thing she will eat. There are days when she still wants nothing to do with the canned food or will eat 1/2 can (recommended amount is 3), but she will eat 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the dry. It's less than I would like, but her weight loss has stabilized and she is happy and active again. As this food does not require a prescription, I would highly recommend giving you picky eater a taste and seeing if they like it. Unlike the prescription food, it looks and smells like normal cat food. Not dry or so full of gel is it like working with Gelatin. Also, unlike the prescription food, it is available in the smaller cans and costs 1/4 of the other food.

This food sounded great, a fair price and good ingredients, but my cat won't touch it and he's not really a picky eater. In fact he is an over weight neutered adult male house cat. I have been trying different dry food to try to help him loose weight. The first one changed his name to Sir Poops A Lot, the second was great until we made it through almost the second bag which I was mixing with his a non weight loss brand, he got the worst dandruff I have ever seen on a cat. So I switched to yet another weight loss dry food and added fish oil and canned food to his diet. He now gets about a teaspoon of canned food with his fish oil on it, and enjoys it. I looked for a better canned food for the Buddha belly and decided to buy a couple of these, I'm glad I only picked up a couple small cans because he won't even touch it!

Our 14 year old cat was having problems with weight loss and diarrhea. Blood work confirmed pancreatitis. Our vet recommended euthanasia but we weren't ready to give up without a fight. Internet research suggested that the disease could go into remission so we decided to try to find a better diet to help with his condition. The Blue Basics Duck & Potato has turned him around. He no longer has the terrible stomach cramps and diarrhea. We feed him the canned wet food and also the kibbles. About the only other thing we did was let him eat the growing tips of catnip from the yard which also seemed to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisabug Great for cats with food allergies
Cheaper than prescription food and every bit as good for cats with skin conditions and/or allergies.

I have one cat with IBD and another with skin sensitivities, so we are in the process of switching to "novel" proteins. The cat with IBD is incredibly finicky, but she took to this food quickly running to the plate and fending off the other two cats to get more than her share. She looks a little better already so we are hoping this is the first step to healthier cats.

The day I came home after surgery, my cat stopped eating. It was almost a week before I could force him to eat anything. Then he was unable to keep his food down. He would throw up 5-6 times a day. I was sure that I was going to lose him. I switched him to Blue Basics and he has not been sick since. I have never seen such a transformation. Blue Basics has literally saved his life.
