Rated 4 out of 5 by pinkhearts777 Good ingredients and decent price - PATE STYLE
I'm actually writing this review on behalf of my mom...her cat is elderly and has few teeth....he likes pate style food. This particular style -Beef It Up -is pate and it clearly states that is the traditional "loaf style"...NOT chunks of beef and gravy # that is Evanger's Slow Cooked style#......He likes it...actually he loves it....gobbles it up....This food has no unfavorable ingredients # at least that I can tell#....no added colorings, bht, nitrites, carrageenan...etc....Can't beat the price...a little over a buck a can ....great !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Obiesmom It's all beef to me
I ordered both the Beef It Up and Chicken Lickin' because the formulas looked good. My cat wouldn't touch the chicken, but he absolutely loves the beef! He'd rather not eat the PetGuard that he had been eating up until now anymore either. That suits me just fine as the Beef It Up has no grain and few carbs with a bonus of costing much less per case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Heynonynony A healthy switch if your cat likes store brands, but not if your cat is sensitive
I was initially excited to find an affordable grain-free cat food with no carageenan, so I mistakenly assumed it would have the bits in gravy consistency my cat likes. It didn't, and turns out the extra vegetables I saw listed (butternut quash, tomato paste, guar gum) gave the food an extra dense pate consistency which she doesn't like. Since she has a pretty finicky stomach, she's a pretty picky eater. This was the first canned food she refused to eat -- at least, until she was starving and I mixed in some fish. It all seemed fine for the first couple days until she started vomiting after meals. I can't tell if it's the Evanger's, the other food I'm mixing in to get her to eat it, or the stress of having moved house a couple days ago, but bottom line is she doesn't like the food I'm trying to force her to eat, and my carpet can only take so many vomit stains.
For people with less picky cats, this seems like a good, healthy choice. For people with extremely sensitive cats, this could be hit or miss. For mine, it just didn't work out the way I had hoped -- although I'm contemplating trying it out on the dog, since there seems to be a fair amount of vegetable content in it...

Rated 4 out of 5 by meemawsplace Great product, but
No complaints about the quality of the food. My cats ate it for a while then suddenly refused to eat it.
Maybe the formula was changed or my cats just got bored. I would recommend because of quality. It will just depend on your feline companions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HipDog good lower cost food
Not all the cats liked it - but cats. they're picky. For most of them, though, the food was happily accepted. No digestive issues either which is a plus when you have senior and weanlings.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chris28 My cats are okay with it
My cats don't hate it & they're not too crazy about it. I guess they're okay with it. It's got a lot of sauce, so that's a plus. And my cats who can't eat anything but Fancy Feast, have an easier time eating this food than other health food. By the way, Fancy Feast has given most of my cats hyperthyroid & kidney issues, because it contains too much sugar and salt and because it's made in equipment that's contaminated with rocket fuel

Rated 2 out of 5 by baseballkid0404 My cats would not touch it!
Wholesome ingredients and a perfect blend for my one cat with a grain allergy, but neither of the two would touch the stuff. Even after I mixed it with some of their other food, they could still smell this brand mixed in. I would only recommend this brand if you have a cat that has been on a grain-free diet for a while and may tolerate the blend of ingredients.
