Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 9 Cats love this I looked all over for this as the Vet & other stores were forced to not sell this. The company says it's going to be marketed through a chain store. I hope they don't or change the quality of this product. I just wish it came in a 25lb bag January 1, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chewy I order online often, and I have to say that Chewy has one of the top customer service teams I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with! Product selection is awesome, very good prices and fast shipping but the customer care team rocks. Recommend to all of my "fur" parents. December 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finnicky cat loves this food My cat suffers from intenstinal disease and she also gets bored with her food and will stop eating it. This product was given to me by my vet as a sample, and my cat actually chewed into the bag to get at the food. She's been eating it exclusively ever since. it's helped her to gain some weight . It's also not available at Petsmart , etc. So it's a bit hard to find. December 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitten Loves It! This was recommended by our vet for our new kitten and he loves it - The older two cats even like to steal his food so they must like it too! It has loads of good nutrition for growing little fur balls! October 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love all natural My kittens and cats that I take in and care for I feed them this brand. They love it. They don't eat as much as the other brands with by-product in them. Their coats are silky smooth since I put them on all natural food. Very healthy and active!!! Love this food and would recommend to anyone. September 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great kitten food The shelter where I adopted my new kitten a few months ago provided a small care package that included this food to take home with her. When that ran out I bought a bigger package. Now she's on her third round. She loves the chicken and brown rice, can't get enough. It keeps her healthy and strong with a nice coat. Highly recommend. September 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product--Got Fast Ideal Balance is a great product! I had been feeding it my new kittens for a couple of months when the only pet store in my area stopped carrying it. I was happy with the price of the food on Chewy.com, plus the fact that if you order a certain amount there is no shipping charge. When I ordered the food it came in two days. Nothing comes in two days and I was in need of food. I put in my order for reorder right away! August 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittens love it GREAT FOOD FOR KITTENS. RECOMMENDED BY MY VET NATURAL September 3, 2016
