Questions & Answers

7 Customer Questions

How much phosphorus on a dry matter basis?
Answer by ChewyJul 03, 2020
This formula has a phosphorus content of 0.14% on an as-fed basis (0.71% on a dry matter basis).

Does Weruva BFF Play Checkmate Chicken Dinner meet World Small Animal Veterinary Association guidelines?
Answer by ChewyJan 30, 2020
All of Weruva wet food is formulated for adult maintenance and is a complete and balanced meal according to AAFCO standards. Their foods, cans & pouches, are soy, corn and wheat free. The focus of all of their formulas is always with high quality meat, such as boneless, skinless white breast meat chicken and all of their wet foods are grain-free, with no GMOs, hormones, antibiotics, fillers or byproducts.

What is the % protein, phosphorus, sodium, and omega-3 on a dry matter basis?
Answer by ChewySep 10, 2020
This recipe contains approximately 47.70% Protein, 0.71% Phosphorus and 0.61% Sodium on a Dry Matter basis. Weruva does not add any Omega 3 specifically to hit certain levels, and chicken breast is naturally lower than fish (especially cold-water fish). There are no AAFCO minimums on the Omegas, so this is not something Weruva labs test for regularly.

What is the amount of taurine? Weruva lists taurine on their website for all their foods except for pate formulations
Answer by ChewyMar 01, 2022
Weruva cat formulas all have a minimum 0.05% taurine per AAFCO standards.

Perfect for CKD cats

I have a senior cat who’s in the early stages of CKD. He refuses any of the prescription kidney diets, so my vet told me to buy the wettest food I could find. He LOVES this food. Yes, it’s very wet, but that’s exactly what you want for a cat with kidney issues. I have two younger cats who also love this food, which works out well as the cans are a bit large and the perfect amount for the three to share. I’ve been feeding them the “Chicken Checkmate” flavor. It’s a hit!

great for CKD and diabetic kitties

The list of foods that are low phosphorus and low carb is short but both of my cats like this one and it meats all of their dietary needs despite their medical conditions. I was able to get my diabetic cat regulated, and his kidney disease has not progressed since being in this food

My cats like small cans better

The small can has more gravy than the large can. Most of my cats will eat the small can. None of them appreciate the large can. Be carful when you order to check the size of the can.

My Chicken Lovers Don’t Love This

This is like cans of water with some runny unappealing greasy hunks of ground cat food mixed in. My chicken-loving cats hate this. One of my three cats won’t touch it at all, the other two unhappily nibble at it and leave plenty behind in their bowls, which they normally never do. I feel like I’m being cruel feeding this to them. I will likely wind up having to throw away the rest of the cans I bought. Nothing I do makes this any more appealing to them. I had bought this brand in the past with no issues, but something seems to have changed in recent times. It’s now a very disappointing waste of money.

Great food for CKD and elderly cats

I will keep buying this product. My cat's love it. It is a soft pate with lots of broth, and it has a low phosphorus content which makes it a really good option for senior cats and CKD kitties. I wish they sold these in larger cases!

water logged

If you don't mind paying for water, go for it! Essentially water with a thimble full of cat food I gave it 2 stars because my cats ate it Have purchased this in the past with satisfaction, perhaps they changed their formula

Finicky cat gobbles this down!

My 19 year old cat is extremely finicky when it comes to wet food. Her preferences chance on a dime. I finally found a wet food she consistently enjoys and gobbles down like a fiend!!

Delicious Chicken Pate CKD Kitty friendly

I purchased this trying to get my cat off of Merrick's Rabbit Pate because that stuff was affecting her health and this Chicken recipe was good for my cat who is showing signs of CKD and kidney issues suddenly. The phosphorus on a dry matter basis are great from this flavor. She doesn't love it but it's good enough and doesn't affect her health in a negative way. The price for the cans is also great compared to other more expensive brands. Weruva does a pretty great job creating healthy options for cats without breaking the bank. I'm definitely going to continue this as long as my cat will eat it. She for the most part LOVES Weruva wet foods that i've tried in the past this one maybe being only chicken is less palatable than the other mixed flavor varieties.

Not for my chicken lovers!

I have no idea why neither of my two cats--one being very picky and only eating chicken foods while the other eats almost everything--quickly rejected this "new" wet food. I tried twice, getting the same results from my two cats each time. I have to agree that there is little/no scent for this food (I sniffed it); one cat strictly eats what smells right to him while the other is usually not particularly interested in the odor of the food he eats. Sadly, this wet food is a big reject for my two cats.

Hard to Open

My cats loved this, but honestly the cans are too hard for me to open!
