Blue Buffalo Freedom Chicken Recipe Grain-Free Indoor Dry Cat Food
cats love it
my cats love this food, it's a little more expensive than the other brands you'll find in supermarkets but the ingredients speak for itself. my 2 cats usually have hairballs or throw up their food but i've noticed that in the past 2-3 weeks since i've been feeding them this only one cat has vomited JUST ONCE in the beginning and it may have been because i just switched out their food instead of weaning them onto it. that's 2 cats once every day to just 1 cat ONCE in weeks! i would definitely recommend this food to anyone who has cats, esp finicky ones or ones with sensitive stomachs like mine.
As for Mr. Chewy...since my strokes i'm unable to drive so even though mr.chewy is the same price as Petsmart prices, mr.chewy's shipping is better. plus(!) mr.chewy sends next day without extra fees, so it saved me money in the long run AND i received my order the very next day after ordering! They couldn't make it more convenient if they tried! :)

Not only no grains----NO FISH!
My 3-yr-old feline friend, Dot, has had skin eruptions most of her life. They come and go, range from oozy, nasty yucky patches to tiny little itchy bumps. Neither we nor our brilliant naturopathic vet can figure out just what's going on. We did note that Dot breaks out less when she gets a kibble diet, and a LOT more if she eats wet food that incorporates fish protein. The vet recommended using only "novel proteins," unusual ones like venison and rabbit, because at least some of Dot's symptoms point to a food allergy, and I guess cats often develop allergies to common protein sources. So for months, we fed her Nature's Variety Instinct Rabbit. Dot did "okay" on that, but there was still always some rash along her spine and on her belly.
Then I looked at the ingredient list on the Instinct rabbit again. Don't know whether I just missed it, or if NV changed their formulation, but now the third ingredient is SALMON MEAL! Why make the effort to put out a "novel protein" product, and include common allergenic proteins?
We switched to Blue Buffalo Freedom, and what a difference! For the first time in her adult life, Dot is nearly itch-free. We're going to stick with this for now, while we try different raw diets till we find one she can tolerate. Besides lots of vitamins and minerals, Freedom's ingredient list includes several probiotic strains. It is working well for us.

Great for our cat with food allergies
We switched to Grain Free from a prescription cat food because of the costs. The grain free has proven to be a good food for our cat who has multiple food allergy issues. Blue Buffalo Freedom Grain Free is liked by all our cats (6). Thanks Blue Buffalo.

Soft, silky coats
I have two indoor cats - one is 14, the other 7. Both have been eating Innova Adult Low Fat dry for several years (both also share one 3oz. can of wet food for supper). While Innova is one of the better quality dries, I have noticed in the past 6-8 months both cats are shedding much more than usual and both have dry, flaky skin - mainly on their backs. Switched to Blue Freedom Grain Free about three months ago and am noticing a big difference in their coats. They are both very soft & silky to touch, and the shedding, flaking and hairballs seem to have cut down quite a bit. Yoshi & Nikki give Blue freedom two paws up for taste! >^..^<

Fat cat cure!
My food obsessed, once starved kitten- who has turned into a 13 lb. monster- loves this! Without the grain products and low quality proteins she eats less, but is satisfied. I can't beleive how much less wibble is in her wabble, without any effort. Thanks for carrying this product!!!

Great for cats with allergies!
Since her rescue at 5 weeks old, my cat Nika has had allergies to basically everything under the sun, including most pet foods. When my vet suggested this, I hoped so much that this would finally allow my cat to be itch-free and scab-free and that her finicky newly-rescued sister, Pickle, would like it too.
After a week, the verdict was in. BOTH cats loved the food, thank goodness, and no more scabs for Nika from food allergy scratching.
I've been using this food for about three months now and both cats have silky, shiny coats that feel amazing to the touch and glisten in the sunlight. Pickle's black coat looks dazzling! No more gastric upset, either, which is a plus for my allergy cat. Makes cleaning the litter box a bit less gross.
I would suggest this food to everyone if your vet approves, especially those whose cats spit-up and have soft/ loose stools.

My mini schnauzer is very sensitive to EVERYTHING including the sun. We were on the regular blue and switched her over to this and she doesn't seem to have as many issues. My other dog eats it as well just because of the simplicity of one food, she loves it as well.

My cats love Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken and Blue Buffalo Freedom.
I switched from another quality dry food because the first ingredient is chicken and it's lower calorie than the former brand. My cats are now at a perfect weight and are digesting it well. I have show quality Bengals & Siamese and they all have nice coats and strength apparent by their musculature and energy levels.
