Started our 8 year old adopted girl on this food since we caught early kidney disease in her. Since we’ve only had her for a year it’s been hard to figure out what she likes and what her temperament is like when she’s feeling good and since switching her to this food she’s like a kitten again! Thanks blue Buffalo and chewy!
Our 19 year old Persian loves this food and we’ve seen such an improvement in him since we started it. We originally were feeding him Royal Cabin’s Kidney food but it was out of stock everywhere so I tried this food instead. He went from hiding under the bed most of the day to being around us all the time again. He moves so much better and hardly stumbles at all which was frequent before. He is also using a ramp to get on the bed which he never did before. We had his kidney levels tested and in a year they’ve barely changed. I absolutely recommend this food!
It can be challenging to find the right food for a senior cat with some health issues. She liked some bites of this first couple days, but since then it just sits and has not been palatable for her.
I bought this because our normal CKD prescriptn kibble was unavailable. The cat I primarily got it for is 20 yrs old. He threw this up consistently over 2 days. I was lucky to get a flavor variation on his old kibble brand that was in stock and which he now loves as much as the unavailable flavor. I had had high hopes for Blue Buffalo as this food is not made w/byproducts, but it just doesn't work for him. My 14 yr old has CKD now and she is eating this well. However, she doesn't like the darker mobility kibbles as much as the lighter colored kidney kibble. Good thing the mobility kibble is in the minority of this mix. So much for a more natural kibble food. If I could, I would give this food a 2.5. When you're cat is age 20 and thin already, you don't want him vomiting. I know glucosamine chondroitin can cause some cats GI issues, but he used to take Cosequin w no GI problems, so I don't know what the problem ingredient is for him.
Currently she eats blue buffalo chicken dry food and we thought this would be a perfect fit since she now needs a kidney food. We mixed it slowly with her current food, but she refuses to eat it. It doesn't help that the kibble of the kidney food is slightly bigger so she just eats around it. We are very disappointed, we hoped this would work.
This food quite literally saved my cats life. For reasons we still don't understand, my 10 year old cat went into kidney failure. She did NOT have kidney disease and three weeks before, she had bloodwork where her kidney levels were normal. After four days in the hospital, she was stable enough to take home. For almost a week, she ate barely anything. I was trying to syringe feed her to get her some nutrients. It was so bad that I made an appointment to put her down on a Sunday. The Saturday before, this food arrived in the mail from Chewy. My cat DEVOURED it. She ate about 1/3 of a cup. I canceled the appointment to euthanize her. The next day, she continued eating well and without any appetite stimulants. She seeks out this food and is more than happy to eat it. She will go for bloodwork soon to see how her levels are doing, but I am so happy that we found a food that is safe for her to eat and that she wants to eat. I was not ready to say goodbye to my girl.
Spike is 14 now. His recent labwork shows a decline in kidney function so we need a special diet. We tried the Blue Buffalo veterinary diet for kidney support after he turned his nose up at two other options. He likes this dry food and is now eating the canned version too!
We wanted to try this food for our CKD kitty because it looked like a quality product, but it does not seem to agree with him. We fed about a 1/4 cup a day with his regular dry for several days. Then he started going to the litter pan several times in about a 1/2 hr before urinating. Which he has never done before. So, we stopped feeding the BB KM. Then we waited a week or two before trying the food again. After a couple of days on it, he started going to the litter pan multiple times, again. After stopping it, he returned to his normal potty habits. It may be a good food for other kitties, but does not work for our boy.
Prescription kidney care cat food has reduced protein, and apparently cats like the taste of protein because this is just one on a long list of brands my cat won't eat.
Great food. We tried a couple other different brands when our previous kitty had to go on a kidney diet. Any time she threw up on those other ones-even vet recommended ones, carpet would end up with a stain. This time we decided to spend a bit of extra money to go better quality. Not only was it a super easy transition, we don't have any worse messes when tummies get upset.
