Rated 4 out of 5Â by katowner27 ... "Kat" won't eat anything else
Adopted a cat from a shelter.
She came complete with giardia. Diarrhea, etc. The vet put her on 7(?) days of pills and said use the EN diet.
When that cleared, found she had severe gingivitis requiring removal of all but canines. Vet said cats can still eat.
2 years later, she's healthy weight eating only EN dried food. Doesn't want anything else wet or dry.
Problem: no matter how steep the edges of the bowl, she leaves too much on the side when she pushes her face in it (no front teeth). It becomes stale and she won't eat it. So she wastes a lot.
But now chewy.com sells 10# for about the price of my vet's 6#... Happy

I rescued two cats from rural Louisiana and they had constant diarrhea despite no parasites, etc. I tried a few different good quality foods, but when nothing else worked the vet recommended EN. No more diarrhea and the cats love it.

My cats seem to like this food , I also make up a bowl full with warm water on it, so it gets soft. They eat that really well.

My cat seems to appreciate the change in food. She doesn't have constant diarrhea like she used to & is feeling much better. She also seems to like the taste of this.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JG70 The dry formula worked just like the vet said it would
Our Cat Jake had been eating whatever we served him much too fast and was throwing up some of his food and treats two to four times a month. After his fourth year he wasn't gaining weight, he was losing it. He also started meowing a lot in a whiny kind of way--as if to say, "I want you guys to do something to help me"--but we didn't know what was bothering him, so we took him to our veterinarian.
After a thorough examination, the vet recommended Jake be put on a new diet and sold us a bag of Purina Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Formula Dry Cat Food. That is certainly a very long product name to say in one breath, but it's been working beautifully! Not only has Jake stopped complaining all the time, he's been more content and has rejected those cat treats he used to scoff down furiously in his search for good nutrition. The best news? Jake has stopped throwing up.
Recently we ordered two more bags from Chewy.com, because of the savings. Three days ago Jake had finished devouring every nugget from the bag we got from the vet, so we opened the first 6-lb. bag from Chewy's. We noted the date when we began feeding him from this fresh supply and will track how long it takes him to finish both 6-lb. bags. Then we'll know how often to order this formula from Chewy.com again, so they can send it on a regular schedule and we can realize even more savings.
As far as we're concerned? Happiness is having a happy Jake in our home.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by straycatlover3 Not as effective as the wet EN formula
My cat had severe diarrhea and the vet finally put him on EN and probiotics. We started with the wet EN and it worked, but I decided to try the dry EN and it seemed to bring the diarrhea back. Stick with the wet EN which is working like a charm.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ScootersNana Solved our tummy troubles
Adopted a 3 month old kitten from the shelter. He had trouble throwing up. The vet put him on EN. The tummy troubles stopped and we have a healthy beautiful cat. This product is expensive, but if you need it and can afford, is well worth the price it did offer us a solution. The price is why 4 stars.
