Weruva Cats in the Kitchen The Double Dip Chicken & Beef Au Jus Canned Cat Food
Comparison Between Weruva "Cats In The Kitchen The Double Dip" & "On The Cat Wok"
Both "The Double Dip" & "On The Cat Wok" contain chicken & beef, and are grain & carrageenan free. Although "The Double Dip" is 0.5 oz (14g) more in net weight, it is too gelatinous and seems to contain less meat, especially beef. "The Double Dip" uses minced beef and lists chicken broth as the 1st ingredient. "On The Cat Wok" uses shredded beef and lists chicken as the 1st ingredient. "The Double Dip" is however starch free whereas "On The Cat Wok" contains potato starch. Both "The Double Dip" & "On The Cat Wok" are great as they use good quality ingredients. Personally, I prefer "On The Cat Wok" because it seems to contain more beef and is not gelatinous.

Instant vomiting from 4 of 5 cats
I've been trying to find various recipes for different proteins and Weruva has, what seemed to be, solid ingredients. However, too many gums make it very gelatinous and I think that texture is what caused my cats to throw up just a few minutes after eating it. They seemed to enjoy eating it but both times after feeding them this food, 4 of the 5 threw up every bit of it.
I've never had this kind of instant reaction from a food in any of my cats.

perfect for my picky kitty with kidney issues
I have a 5 year old cat who has kidney issues. Her vet recommended that she be switched to a strictly wet food diet because she needs the extra moisture more that an average kitty (although all cats can benefit from a wet food diet). She just wouldn't give up the dry stuff no matter how many different wet foods i tried with her. I refused to get anything that contained carageenan and although she loves fish flavors, i worried about heavy metal contamination. I found this and decided to give it a try because she also likes beef flavors. It's kind of odd because it is nice shredded bits of beef and chicken, but it is in kind of a gelatinous substance. but really, it gives it a high moisture content which is perfect for her, and she really loves it. she won't even look at the dry food if she has this in front of her. it's a hit every time.
Another plus is that is processed in a human food grade facility and Weruva does not take part in or support animal testing, which is very important to me. It's good, high quality food. Perfect.

Good quality, cats love it, not enough calories
The good: Human grade ingredients made in a plant that produces human grade food. Very low carb and no carageenan. Most of my cats LOVE this flavor.
The not so good: Yes, it is a bigger can at 6 oz but the whole can is only 124 calories, VERY low so it will cost twice as much to give your cats the calories they need. By comparison, a 5.5 oz can of Wellness has 220 calories, 5.5 oz can of Addiction Rabbit has 174 calories and 5.5 oz of Rad Cat Chicken has 227 calories. A 5.5 can of Weruva Paw Licken Chicken only has 103 calaories.
I love this brand because of the high quality and it makes my cats happy but I cannot afford to feed it every day since I have to feed twice as much to multiple cats.

excellent cat food
food has lots of gravy which cats love. choice cuts of meat along with no grain/no carrageenan & it also low carb. it's an excellent choice for pet owners.

Paws up for quality
I agree with all the pro AND con reviews. But it meets the different dietary restrictions that "my boys" require. And they will eat it!

My newly adopted cat wasn't feeling the regular Weruvas, always leaving the veggies out. This has done the trick! She is obsessed with all the meaty goodness.

Although the cans are nice size, my cat doesn't seem to like as much as the plain steak or the plane chicken....
