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.

Quality Guaranteed in Every Bowl

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. All products undergo 360-degree quality control and are tested before they're even shipped, and all dry food is made right here in the USA.

    My 15-year old likes it, my 3-year old does not. I like how it comes in a self-closing bag.

    Everything me & my kitties have been searching for!

    By KiKiKitty on Jan 11, 2020

    This Blackwood Chicken Meal & Rice Recipe Cat Food is everything me and my kitties have been searching for. I LOVE the ingredients; such as kelp - no artificial vitamin K!! Thank you for that! It also is nutritionally balanced & complete and we are all so happy. The cats love it. They love the flavor and the pieces are not too large for my senior and my cat with a lot of pulled teeth. This company puts a lot of thought, love and pride into their product. Highly recommend.

    Cats are loving it!

    By Simbasmom on Dec 16, 2019

    I wanted to try something new for my cats, who don't get out much (unless on harness). And saw this food at a great sale price, and liked the ingredients. I tend to rotate foods, allowing for variety in taste and nutrition, and slowly transitioned them to this food. They really seem to like it and are doing very well on it! Even my megacolon cat is digesting and "going" ok so far (she is also on meds). They have one meal wet, and one meal dry, will keep on this food for a while a think :)

    Good ingredients and easy to close bag

    By Everist on Jan 21, 2020

    It seems to be quality cat food with a convenient reclosable top. Too bad my cats do not like it, but I have not been able to find a reduced-calorie cat food that they do like yet.

    Refused to Eat

    By Wildcat on Nov 19, 2019 top500Contributor

    We thought we'd try a "filler" to help save on our large rescue budget and mixed this food with our regular Purina Tender Selects. It was left uneaten even though mixed in well. We liked that Blackwood was family owned and hoped with its reviews and pricing, it would be our answer, but it was refused and left in the bottom of all feeding bowls. So, the price of two large uneaten bags was not the answer.

    Working for weight loss.

    By Does on Jul 1, 2019

    My cat doesn't like this stuff, which is good, because she needs to eat less. She eats it eventually, but doesn't scarf it down then beg for more like her old food.

    Wonderful food

    By Purr on May 1, 2019

    All my cats may accept it, it is really not so easy, they always have their own choices before, but not this time. I am so glad to find a perfect food for everyone, and a reasonable price for me also. It is a Win-Win.
