Stella & Chewy's Duck Duck Goose Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food
This is a great quality food for cats without the aggravation of a traditional raw diet.

Cats like this one.
My cats like this one. I do shred it up with my fingers and then add warm water and make sure it's well mixed for them and they tuck right in.
I will say that there are some little bone shards in it that I pick out before offering it (with warm water added, never dry) to the foster kittens. The shards are fine for adult cats, but my little guys...I'm not comfortable with the shards for them, so I make sure that their food is free of them, first. But the kittens love it too and it's good for them in rotation with their other foods.

Flexible, quality product to feed
I like that this freeze dried raw meal mix can be served in more than one way. I initially used it as a treat on top of my cats kibble simply crushed in its 'dry' format. I later mixed it with warm water as directed on the package and the cats loved it that easy as well, so I occasionally give them a small serving 'wet' as a treat. They love and devour it. Consider it as a treat or transitional phase for those interested in moving to a raw diet.

Nutritious, well balanced food.
I have two cats, one is extremely picky and quite under weight. I noticed him being very interested in my dogs dinner (Stella & Chewies) so I tried it. He still doesn't eat as much as I want him to, but along with the Fromms dry to graze on and wet food I think he is being nourished properly. DARN CATS!!!

cat loves it! Fixed her diarrhea problem!
My cat loves Stella and Chewy's Duck, Duck, Goose food. I was a little hesitant to try this product, considering my cat had never eaten raw freeze-dried food. The first few times I gave it to her, she sucked it up like a vacuum! Her diarrhea instantly went away. her stool has never been so normal thanks to Stella and Chewy!

My 2 bengals gobble up every type of Stella and chewy's I put in front of them. They love this one (duck duck goose), along with the chicken one and the chicken/ salmon one. I'm glad they love it, I love it too! Great ingredients, raw, and very convenient in the freeze-dried raw form. My holistic vet recommends it too!

This is a great product.
This product comes in convenient small balls of lightly compressed shreds that can be easily sprinkled over other foods when kitties are feeling finicky. Just be sure to add some extra water to the mix. The shreds rehydrate quickly into nice meaty tidbits. My cats love the extra zip this product adds to their other moist foods, and the ingredients make me feel good about adding it. I will definitely buy this product again.

A good way to start on raw
After switching my cat to grain-free, I started looking up raw foods to introduce into her diet slowly. Considering Stella and Chewy's is one of the cheaper brands on the market for this, I've been very pleased with how well she's taken to the Duck, Duck Goose formula. I tend to over-hydrate the mix so that 1) I can force my cat to take in more moisture in her diet, and 2) I can use it as a wet topping for other grain-free cat foods while her taste buds and natural stomach bacteria get used to raw foods. My cat has been very happy with the food, so I plan on making the Duck/Goose formula a permanent part of my cat's food rotation.

Since we began using Stella & Chewys, our cats coat has become softer,shinier. Pilgrim no longer has dandruff. The fact that rehydrating the cat food ensures Pilgrim is receiving plenty of liquids. Thanks!

My cat goes crazy for this food
My cat can be picky but not with this food! He meows at the cabinet door where we keep it. I add a bit of water to it and let it set a minute before serving. He eats all of it and drinks any of the liquid that is left. The bowl is licked clean. I have noticed that the litter box smell has decreased tenfold (yeah!) and he is a happier, zippier guy.

Fabulous - except for price.
The girls just love this. I have a 9 month old kitten and an 18 1/2 yr old Sr and they both come running. I would never go back to canned now that we've found dehydrated raw. Amazing how many people simply don't do their homework when it comes to nutrition for their beloved pets.
When I see the commercials on TV for pet food that is honestly, just poisonous garbage, I am aghast at people who just blindly buy it. But hey, these are the same people who think McDonalds is healthy, too. Meh.

As a breeder of Savannah cats I try to feed my cats and kittens the best and I feel the best is a raw diet. However, a lot of new families don't feel comfortable feeding a raw diet. Also, for my kittens that are used to the wholesome raw diet, they turn their noses up at kibble. Kibble is really bad for your cat. Stella & Chewy's freeze dried foods are something that if I don't wet, I can leave in a bowl overnight or if we're going to be gone longer than normal. You can also add water to it and it's a wet meal.

They love it and it shows
I have three cats with absolutely different tastes, but they all love this one.
One of my cats was having some bad allergic reactions, sneezing, loss of hair and a rash. Ever since we added Stella & Chewy to his diet he has been looking great, everything has cleared up.
Makes me so happy to see him looking younger and feeling so good.
Thank you Stella and Chewy

Healthy and delicious
Easy to feed raw product. Our cat came to us as a very sick and emancipated stray. He had diarrhea that improved over time with various wormers but that we never were able to get rid of. Switching him to Stella & Chewy's resolved it!

My dogs really like this food & eat it very readily. I recommend it!

A quality product
Pros: Superior ingredients made by a team that cares and did their homework as to what is best for a cat.
Cons: Expensive. Due to this, I end up mixing half of S&C's with half of Hill's dry food. Would be real cool to see a larger size added to the line to get the per-meal price lower.

I have 4 very picky ferrets and they love this food. especially when u had warm water to it. and if they are sick it make an awesome soup.

Very good, easily digested food.
This food has worked well with our older cat with IBD. He eats small amounts at a time, but finishes his bowl and little goes to waste.

Cats love it!
My cats will eat this. Next best thing to feeding raw.

Very good mixed with canned food
My 3 cats, ages 6 mo., 2,5 y. and 14 y. like this one even better than the chicken flavor. I feed them mostly canned Nutro and Weruva, but spread a couple pieces of this dry food over the canned with each meal, also add some water for that extra tasty gravy. This way they get plenty nutrition and their little tummies feel good and full after meals. Since I started adding this dried food, the cats eat their wet meals with greater pleasure, also their bowels work like a clock.

My cats love it, easy to use too
For some reason, I thought I was ordering two cases...........well, I did receive 2 individual dinners..........need to pay attention!

I thought it would be difficult to convert my cat from unhealthy dry food to raw freeze-dried, but he immediately took to this food and ate it right up. He's normally very picky so I was really surprised.

This company takes PRIDE in their product. You'll discover when you research the quality in their RAW pet foods
Think about it????? Cats in nature eat RAW. Do you have to take cats in the wild to the vet all the time?
Stella and Chewy's freezer dried is next best to Raw Wild with no effort on my cats part to have to catch and eat. Without a doubt their stool DOES NOT have an oder. This is called CLEAN eating for my girls. My Cats have No health issues. I even put my foster kittens on Stella and Chewy's. I foster just to put kittens on a RAW diet because I care. Then foster then out to a family that contracts w/me to keep kittens on Stella and Chewy's.

8 paws up!!
Both of my felines adore this food and flavor! They always look at me and want more. I use this as a back up in case I forget to leave the raw food out to thaw. Best price that I've found; still too pricey for me to use on a daily basis.

OMG. BEST PRODUCT E-V-E-R
My cat ADORES Duck Duck Goose! All I have to say is "Duck Duck Goose"....and he RUNS to his bowl purring!!!! THANK YOU for suggesting.....and all the great 5Star comments leading me to it!!!!

Neutral at this point
I should have purchased a trial size and that's what I suggest to anyone. Once added to their daily fare, all noses snubbed this. Is it the flavor? Maybe the texture? I found a source for sample bags so I will try other flavors. Love the concept, but if I end up donating it or putting it out for wildlife, it is a bust.

This not one of their favorite flavors but they both seem to like it as a change from the chicken and Turkey and are eating it well after about a month. My 16 yr old boy usually gets tired of a brand or flavor quickly.. but he has been sticking with this and has gained a little weight which he needed. I love that I don't have to open a whole can just to throw half of it out. I did get 4 flavors and I do give them something different a few times a week to give them a change but the fact that my boy is still eating this so well is amazing!

APPROVED BY ALL THREE CATS!
I love this food and so do my cats...the problem is...they only like the duck goose flavor....not sure why....very easy to mix/prepare..I always have a bag on hand !

Grace Loves It
My Gracie has hepatic lymphoma and my holistic veterinarian suggest I give her a diet of raw based foods. Even some of the best natural canned wet foods still contain gluten and /or some other form of starch for a binder. These starches turn to sugar, which feeds cancer. I was shocked to see that the crude protein of this product is 40% and most top dollar canned foods it's only 9-12%. Miss Gracie loves it and we are on our second bag so far this evening. She loves that there's REAL bone for her to chomp on, just like if she were a wild kitty. Plus, it doesn't smell up my house like the traditional canned foods!! It still has wet kitty food smell, but some of the ones I had caused me to perpetually burn incense to keep the odor at bay.

My cats loved it dry! They eat mostly raw and canned food. This is nice alternative for the ones who crave dry food, it lacks the crunch of dry kibble, but they gobble this up. It's a bit expensive, and I wish it came in a larger economy size. If you have more than 3 cats, it's not a cost effective solution. But good temporary alternative for people who travel and can't feed defrosted raw, or for pets who are craving a different texture. My cats also love the "Yummy Lickin' Salmon and Chicken" variety as well.
