Rated 4 out of 5 by RockysMom good
My cat Rocky's colitis is calming down on this food. The food is very, very expensive, even when you purchase at Chewy. The protein % is only 6.5. Maybe that is necessary for some cats, but my cat is hungry after a can and a half. Seems to me for the price, Royal Canin could put a bit more protein in the fan. I will continue with the Royal Canin pv diet for as long as I can. I will always continue with Chewy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Louise User friendly!
My cat has severe skin allergies and the second time we
went back to HP, he was frequently vomiting. He
apparently couldn't tolerate all the soy in HP. While both
the canned and dry food of the "selected protein" has
some soy, it is not all soy. He has been tolerating it very
well with no issues and I believe his skin issues are back
under control. While it is expensive (less than HP, I think), I'll save on vet bills over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SueJ Finally Found a Tasty Canned Prescription Food
4 of my 5 my five cats are allergic to most proteins (severity varies from cat to cat). Venison is the only protein that I have found that does not cause skin eruptions in the form of feline rodent ulcers. Pet shop brands that claim to be limited venison protein cause outbreaks and we have to resort to prednisone and antibiotics. The only two brands that I have been successful with are Hills Prescription Diet and Royal Canin Veterinary Diet. They like the Hills Prescription Diet d/d Venison and Green Pea kibble, but will have nothing to do with their canned food. However, 3 of my 5 cats like the Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Selected Protein Adult PV in Gel Canned Cat Food. I believe that canned is better for them, so this is a huge success for us and I will continue to work on the remaining 2! I add warm water (hot if the can is coming from the refrigerator) to the food to make it a gruel consistency. This seems counterintuitive for cats who prefer kibble over canned, but it seems to work! The folks at Chewy have marvelous customer service and are wonderful to work with. Auto-ship saves me money and is extremely efficient and worry-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaggieBP Product has resulted in a great improvement for my cat!
My cat had been experiencing skin problems for months. The dermatologist believed it was diet related and recommended this product. Since I have been using it her skin has completely cleared up and she is a much happier kitty!
Yes it is a bit more expensive than commercial cat food but it is well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anne Same product I get from my vet, except much less $$
I've been buying this product from my vet for years, and paying $10 a case more. Chewy promptly reviewed the prescription and shipped, after answering my questions on the phone. Courteous and friendly service. I'm very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMSM Great help for digestive issues.
Consistent flavor and texture. My cat loves it, and it doesn't upset his sensitive intestines.

Our cats specialist recommend this product. It has been very effective. It is the only food he can have, so when we couldn't get the food from the vet we would have a panic attack. How wonderful to find Chewy.com. We worry enough giving multiple drugs twice daily. Chewy.com made our lives easier. And we truly think the cat sits and counts his cans. Ebenezer Scrooge

Rated 1 out of 5 by DMC7 Poor results for our cat.
We have a 14 yr old cat who suffers from inflammatory bowel disease and food allergies.. We have been feeding him the Royal Canin rabbit flavor canned food for 6 months which he eats well but has chronic loose stools. ( not diarrhea, but not formed either) When i learned that there was a venison flavor of the same food i thought it was worth trying to see if his stools would improve. He did eat it but within a few hours he vomited it all up followed by an episode of diarrhea. This repeated a few times over 48 hours so we discontinued the food and went back to the rabbit flavor.
I'm sure this venison is the same high quality as the rabbit and other cats may do very well with it. So my rating of one star only applies to the results WE had with the food. Someone else may well have a 5 star experience with it. We have learned that with IBD and food allergies different cats will have different results from food and meds. The trick is to find the treatment and food that will work for YOUR cat. We did learn that giving our cat weekly Vitamin B 12 injections ( we do it at home) has greatly improved his appetite and energy levels He had become extremely lethargic and the B 12 has made a noticeable difference.
Lastly, want to thank Chewy.com for all the great service we have been receiving. Their customer service has been exemplary.
