Slow Cooked for Better Nutrition

Slow Cooked for Better Nutrition

Blackwood has been perfecting their process of slow cooking for over 20 years to create an appetizing and more digestible pet food. This method leaves valuable proteins, vitamins and minerals intact, making them more bio-available. It helps maximize useable energy, which leads to increased stamina and nutrient uptake, better immune system response and—best of all—less stool.

Blackwood takes care in every step of preparation. They use only the finest all-natural ingredients that contribute to your pet's healthy lifestyle, which means no artificial flavors or colors. And because they own their own facility, Blackwood can ensure the integrity of their diets.

    Surprisingly Popular

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Gave this new brand a trial. All members of my feline family, not just the youngest, have given every evidence they like it. I hand-blend it with some other choice kibble from other lines. When I go to empty & refill their bowls, very few of these little "donuts" are left to empty out.

    Kittens liked it

    One of the kittens we got from the shelter used to eat really quick and then throw it all up a few minutes later. This food has an odd shape that forced her to learn how to chew and not scarf down a meal. It filled them up quickly so we could reduce portion sizes. I ended up moving to Taste of the Wild because they prefer that taste, but I really like this food for kittens. The fact that it's made locally in Ohio makes it that much better!

    Happy, healthy shiny kitten!

    By on

    Our kitten loves this food, his coat is super glossy, shiny and sleek. I had them on another "4 star" cat food but runny eyes, poor coat was NOT a good sign. Now, his runny eyes are gone, his coat is amazing, he has lots of energy and seems to feel great! I was so happy with his healthy reaction to this food - I have now switched our adult cat to the Blackwood Adult cat food - and I'm seeing not only a distinct increase in his energy, but his runny eyes are gone as well, his coat is getting better & he gobbles up the food happily! Both my adult daughters have switched to Blackwood for their cats - & we're all in agreement - with the healthy results we see in our kitties!

    Kittens seem to like it

    By on

    I just got some foster kittens, so I thought I would give this a try. My foster cats have typically responded well to the Blackwood food for adults, and these kittens seem to like the Blackwood Kitten food. I even mixed it a few times with another kitten food, and they simply sorted through the bowl and ate only the Blackwood. I would recommend this item, especially as you can get it in a smaller bag to try.

    I rescue kittens and find them new homes with families who will adore these little fur babies! Thought that I would try this as it is made in Ohio and I live in Ohio. Buy from your neighbors. Small bits, kittens sure loved this!

    Can't Rate Yet...

    I didn't want to rate this as a 1-star because the kitten has not arrived yet to let us know whether or not she likes it. However, as soon as she does, I'll come back to re-rate the product.
