Rated 3 out of 5 by HelenB The New Improved Formula is not great
My cat needs this for his allergies and it works. The new formula is like the paste kids used in kindergarten. It used to have a more pate texture but now its horrible. My cat tolerates it but I have to add water to thin the pastiness down. At this price I end having to throw a lot of it out as he wont eat all of it. I will be contacting Hills but Chewy is great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BodiesMom "New & Improved" Formula?
Our cat was on the ORIGINAL FORMULA for about a year. He loved it & came running when I opened the can. Then they "New & Improved" it. Bodie won't eat the new formula. In fact, he tries to cover it up, as if it is waste in the litter box. That's a pretty clear "NO" vote from our furry consumer. Please return to the original formula!

This food is not edible right out the can. You must mix it with water and ideally grind it in a grinder to make it palatable. Unfortunately it is the only hypoallergenic canned food available. I have to syringe it into my cat's mouth which he accepts . My cat was recently diagnosed with IBD and offering only dry food is not a reasonable option. However, mixing it with water does make it the consistency of a milk shake and easier to eat. Let's hope it helps his IBD issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Judy24 Helps, but cat doesn't like it much
I bought this product for my cat, who has long-standing IBD. I don't like prescription diets, but since nothing else was helping him, I decided to try it. The first few cans I got from the vet were okay, other than looking like brown Jello, but at least my cat ate it. So I bought a case of the stuff from Chewy. The new stuff was marked "improved formula," which is arguable. It is slightly less gelatinous, but my cat doesn't like it as much. I think it's going to be hard to keep his weight up on this stuff since his appetite is rather poor anyway, despite being on an appetite stimulant. I do mix some of the dried Z/D in with it, which helps him accept it a little better. Can't really say whether I recommend it or not. Yes, because it does seem to lessen his symptoms of IBD, but no because it isn't very palatable. Some of the other cats don't seem to have a problem with it, so I guess you just have to try it and see how your cat reacts.

Bought this after a vet visit for my cat, Samantha. We are waiting to see if it helps her itchy ears/head thinking it's related to a food allergy. She is 5 weeks into the food trial and is doing better although it's too soon to see if this is the solution to her itchiness problem. She seems to like the taste...the trial continues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeri Surprise, surprise he loves this food!
This was purchased for a very finicky, sick cat. He eats more now and his condition appears to be improving. It was obvious most other foods didn't make him feel very well. This product has been a tremendous help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Christine "Improved Formula" is not improved
My cat LOVED the original formula and it was just what she needed. She'd been having tummy issues for a long time and this was the first cat food that helped her that she liked. Once the formula changed though, she wouldn't touch it - at all. PLEASE bring the original formula back!
