All the cats in the house wanted in the sacred bathroom
I have four cats, One of which is the one I bought this cat food for because of her extreme allergies to food. I was nervous getting it because she’s normally on the hydrolyzed protein which is always chicken. It’s very limited in the selections, and I can tell she gets bored easily. Well let me tell you what, she devoured this, and all three cats wanted into the bathroom to devour it as well!! I have to feed my special girl inside the bathroom so the other three don’t eat her very expensive prescription diets. None of them ever have responded to the food like they do this one. They meow and cry for this alligator food, it’s crazy! Thank you so much BB for making something that’s good and apparently tasty for skin allergy pets!
Novel protein food working for IBD
My rag doll cat had been eating hydrolyzed Blue Buffalo food, which has been on endless back order. As a substitute, this novel protein food was one possible option that my Vet suggested. I have been very slowly switching my cat over to this food for the past 3 - 4 weeks and he is doing well so far and he likes the food. He is very finicky so I am relieved that he has accepted this food and that so far is digesting it okay. He was very sick and was diagnosed with IBD about a year ago after a CT scan, and is on prednisolodone and omeprazole daily.
He loves it!
We have recently discovered that our 3 year old rescue kitty has a fish allergy. This was months after bumps and later scabs from scratching appeared on his ears. It got to the point where we had to put a cone on him. While doing an elimination diet as prescribed by our vet , he recommended this alligator dry food. I was like “ what” ALLIGATOR! He will never eat it! But trust me after trying 10-15 different foods, he loves it. We are currently only giving him dry food for a month as well as daily immunosuppressant and then we will see about introducing wet food again. But for now he is not starving himself. Try this as a novel protein, it’s worth the money spent .
Great so far
My cat was throwing up weekly or multiple times a week for most of her life right after eating. So far this combined with a different wet food she hasn't thrown up at all. It's only been a few weeks, so not quite long enough to know 100%, but so far it's great and she really likes how it tastes
Cats not happy
My Vet suggested this as an alternative to Blue Buffalo HF (Veterinarian Diet) which has been out of stock. One of my Cats has IBD and two of my other Cats have sensitivity to some foods. They all love the BB-HF. As I have a multi-cat home I try to limit the types of Cat foods I purchase. Our Vet said that my other Cats who are healthy can eat the Veterinarian Diet as well. I had previously tried the other Major Brands (Veterinarian Diet) Dry Cat Foods Hydrolyzed Formulas and my Cats refused to eat it, so I chose to give this NP Veterinarian Diet a try. My Cats were not pleased with Mom’s choice of food. They all pick at the food because they are hungry, there is a lot of food left behind. I am hoping and praying that the BB-HF Veterinarian Diet is back in stock soon, all my Cats love that food. Thank you!
I bought this expensive food for a stray cat I've been taking care of. I've tried every other food for her allergy problems. She won't even go near this food. Left it sit for a few days hoping she would start to nibble at it but she'd rather starve. I put it outside and the racoons wouldn't even eat it.
Finally! Our cat is thriving on Blue Novel Protein -- and loves it
Our cat -- who seems to be allergic to nearly every cat food (including other novel-protein products we have tried, over the years) -- is thriving on Blue NP. No vomiting! She eagerly awaits the feeding bowl.
Tasty and just what the doctor ordered
We have been fans of Blue Buffalo for many years. One of our cats was recently diagnosed with IBD. The vet recommended putting him on a Novel Protein diet. Once again, we turned to Blue Buffalo. He has been on his new regimen for two weeks. He is eating both the wet and dry formulas of the NP diet. We are thrilled with his results so far. No more vomiting or diarrhea, and he is beginning to gain some weight. Best part? He absolutely LOVES the food and can't wait for his next meal! Thank you Blue and thank you Chewy for delivering the food so promptly.
Blue Buffalo alligator is good stuff
Kitty loves it! He started on it for tummy and skin issues. So far they seem to be improving.
My kitties love this food
My older kitty is responding well to this food. Less vomiting and his coat looks great too, less shedding and super shiny !
