Rated 5 out of 5 by colson1 my cats love this!
I love the fact that I can still feed my cats raw food and not have to worry about spoilage by leaving the food out more than 30 minutes. The downside of this cat food is that for 3 cats (average size 8#) the monthly cost of Stella and Chewies is a little over $350.00. As much as I love this food I am going to have to find a less expensive alternative :(

Sometimes when i open the bag I'm tempted to eat it myself as it smells so good. After initial acclimation ....You know how hard it is to shake those "Big Mac" cravings.... my cat now loves it and rarely pukes anymore and she's jumpin around like a little Kitten.
Can't wait for Walmart to pick it up as I'm running out of Furniture to sell to Subsidize the cost,

by Sarahtim Our cats are crazy about this product, and we can feel good about giving it to them.
Our cats' regular diet is a ground raw turkey with bone that requires the addition of a vitamin/mineral supplement. It is very cost-effective for daily meals, and they relish it. However, whenever they have an opportunity to have Stella and Chewy's Chick Chick Chicken Freeze-Dried dinner, they go crazy with excitement. Thanks for such a great product.

I love this food! Or I should say my cats love this food! So much so that they broke into it in the middle of the night and ripped the bag open so make sure you put it behind closed doors and not in a cabinet! I give this food to my little herd of 7 as a treat because it would be too expensive to give them this as their daily food. I wish I could, but they work great as a little treat or I just throw some on top of their food :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by CindymeCindy Cured my cats of her kidney stones (crystals)
A regular vet wanted to puncture my poor kitty's bladder with a needle to obtain urine samples every few months when she had a kidney stone attack. Then stick her with an IV for fluids, and stick her with a shot of antibiotics. My cat was having attacks about every 2 months. Lucrative for the vet, but not good for my cat.
I then went online, and searched for "natural way to cure feline kidney stones". Many naturopathic vets (real vets with a natural bent) wrote articles saying that cooked food was the root of all evil for pets. Responsible for allergies, asthma, diabetes and kidney stones, among other ailments.
So, I first tried giving raw chicken but the cats wouldn't eat it as they'd been raised on the massively cooked kibble, and it was messy anyway. So I researched and decided to go with freeze dried raw, which is slightly preferable to dehydrated raw.
My cats got used to it, and the female with the kidney stones has not had another attack in 7 years now!
I choose Stella & Chewy's because if you read her website, she says she tries to get good sources of meat...more humane. Though she isn't certified humane. It's expensive yes, but I want my cats with me for a long time. Their coats are super soft and shiny, and their poops don't stink like they did on cooked kibble! Some people with animals that have problems are likely spending more on vet visits and medicines, so do consider that against the cost of raw food.
FYI, my regular vet didn't know anything about the advantages of raw food for kidney stones and allergies, and blew me off when I tried to tell her that raw food cured my cat of her bi-monthly kidney stones. Doctors are only trained to know about giving medicines for ailments. Sadly, I doubt she went home to study it. It would greatly reduce her income if everyone started feeding raw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by star Excellent!!!
I started buying Stella and Chewy's because my cat needed to eat something without grain and he wasn't eating any of the grain-free canned meats ( Itried them all). He was absolutely hooked on a tuna based products which I had to get him off of since he had a severe pancreas infection and elevated liver enzymes (yikes!) and phophorus (loaded in tuna). Actually it was the chicken and salmon Stella and chewy's he ate first (obviously, because of the fish product), however I have tried the chicken and he seems to like this too. His coat is glossy and and soft - and he maintains his weight perfectly- its so high in protein and fat. The only thing to watch out for: the litter box offerings tend to be ashy, even bone dry to the point of being white. Don't worry, this is a result of the raw product, not the ash. I just put puree pumpkin in his food and mix it with the raw before adding water and it seems to work fine. Its the only thing he will eat other than the canned food he is not allowed so I have to make allowances.
