So, my sick kitty is now on a veterinary diet. This brand was the only SOFT food I was able to find within his restrictions on chewy. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it in just a can so I had to buy an entire case for over $80!!!! I shouldn't have done it, but I was desperate for my kitty to have a mixture of hard and soft food. This food looks gross. It's almost grey in color. It's almost impossible to even mix it and when I was able to mix it, it was big clumps. He won't eat it and now I'm stuck with a case of it. I would think it was old and outdated but it isn't, it's just bad food. LEARN from my mistake--when trying new foods for your animals DONT ORDER if you can't buy it in small quantities. I should have gone to a pet store first to look for one can.
I am sure this prescription cat food is good for it's intended purposes. My reason was for possible thyroid issues/vomiting issues. I left this cat food down for him for 2 1/2 days and he did not touch it. Being an old cat, I did not want to stress him out any longer. I called Chewy and they were GREAT!! They said to donate it to a charity/rescue and they will credit my account. I was thrilled. I did find some other "tummy sensitive" cat food he likes. Jamon is the love of my life and I cannot imagine life without him. He is 12. Thank you Chewy.
My cat has been on Royal Canin hydrolyzed dry food for a year for IBD and has been craving other flavors. She adores this this Blue Buffalo canned food, which I offer as a supplement to the Royal Canin. The texture is rather rubbery, but I mix it with a little water.
Not happy as I paid a lot of money for this food and the cat will not eat it. Can I send it back? I can not even donate it as it is a prescription. Wish I could have purchased just 2 cans to try not the entire case.
Tibby says this is bad stuff but the vet says at least a week trial before trying something different. He licks the fur off his legs and he ends up getting steroid shots. We're eliminating food as the cause and it's the trial and error method. Thank goodness there's a way to do it.
My cats did not want to eat this at first - the texture is hard and strange. I learned that if I put the food in a glass bowl, add water, and mash it, I can turn this into something my cats are willing to eat. This has been a great solution in my household because my cats are too bonded to not share food even though they have different dietary needs. Both love wet food and I notice I have a much easier time with the litter box when I am not limited to dry food, which is most hydrolyzed options. I Hope this comes back because it is a great solution if you are willing to work with it.
I was concerned having read reviews that it wasn't appetizing. He loves it! Yes, it smells stinky...but I haven't smelled a canned cat food that wasn't.
Because my cat is already on hydrolyzed dry food my vet recommended I also use this food for my cat. She likes it! It helps her because the food does not upset her stomach.
My cat absolutely loves this wet cat food. A change of pace from the dry food that she has had for 5 years.
Neither cat wanted anything to do with this food. It's smells awful, looks worse. I realize for hydrolyzed protein there's not a lot of options. Still trying to figure out a solution for my cats tummy trouble.
