Purina Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Formula Canned Cat Food
Life-saving and life-giving product for Linus :)
I have 2 male litter mates which I have been told by different vets appear to be Maine coon siamese mix. They are now 6 years old. They have never ever been apart up until a few months ago when one of my boys, Linus, became very ill very quickly. I rushed him in to my vet. To make a long story short, Linus was already in DKA. The vet kept preparing me for the worst while instilling hope for the best as she did everything she could to save his life. That was one of the longest heartbreaking weeks. Linus was extremely ill in CCU and Leo was truly grieving at home for the first time without his brother. This is obviously my first time having a diabetic kitty and my first time having inseparable almost identical litter mates. Today, I am beyond Blessed to say my awesome vet saved Linus. He and Leo are both on the Purina DM cat food (both wet & dry food) which came highly recommended by my super amazing vet. No doubt in my mind that Linus would not be doing as well as he is today without his Purina DM cat food. (He has miraculously resumed his normal daily/nightly activities with his brother-even fetching his soccer ball more than ever:) Also, initially I was sent home with a few samples of different cat food brands to try and by far he loved this one the best. Thank you, Purina, for your DM canned and for your DM dry cat food! Thank you, chewy.com, for my shipment of both Purina DM products (1 case of cans & 1-10 lb. bag) arriving to us in perfect condition and in a very timely manner! Both at a better price from chewy.com than any retailer locally! Shine on chewy.com and Purina DM!!!

On the vet's recommendation, we started feeding our cat dm exclusively. We're hoping it keeps his diabetes under control without insulin. So far, so good.

Healthy but not appetizing
My cat got really sick of this quickly so I purchased the other flavor; savory selects. Then he got sick of that. I now intersperse the prescription foods with high protein/low carb/lower fat store bought foods. The DM is good but only if your cat eats it. Getting a diabetic cat to eat is vital so I sort of recommend it.

Product meets all needs.
My cat loves this food. He always finishes his full serving. This is important as it keeps him in excellent control of his diabetes. I love that I can have it delivered instead of picking it up at the Vets every time I need a new supply.

This is the product our Vet reccommended for our diabetic cat..he likes it and seems to be improving nicely on it.
I received my order on time and am very pleased with the quality.. It is exactly the same as the food I bought at the vets office.

Good product, bad shipper
The product is fine and seems to help our cat control his blood sugar.
Most of the cans were dented and two were banged up to the point of leaking all over the rest. The exterior of the branded "Chewy" box was perfectly intact, the interior clean and dry, leading me to believe that pre-damaged product was shipped.

This product helped my diabetic cat to go in full remission.
My 11 y.o. male cat developed diabetic signs & symptoms that at first I didn't recognized. It probably lasted 3-4 months before I took him to our vet. His blood glucose level was over 600. He was put on insulin q. 12 hours with only DM fed to him at the 12 hr. intervals. After a period of 2 1/2 months he had normal blood glucose levels . It has now been 3 months since his insulin was stopped. I still feed him DM twice a day. He is like a kitten again--runs through the house, plays with his toys and ambushes our other cat. I attribute very strict adherence to DM in the amount specified by your Vet and strict insulin coverage 12 hours apart for his recovery. The other cat also loves this food, so I have been feeding her as well. Her coat is now amazing, she's lost a bit of weight and is more peppy than ever.
