  • Instinct Beef formula

    By on

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the change in the beef formula. It use to have some juices in it and a loose texture. They have changed it to a horrible pate with white grease on top and is so pasty that my cat gags on it. Bring back the old formula. My Cat has a real had time with this formula but her diet is so restricted that this is one of a very few choices I can feed her and you have totally ruined this formula. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE stuff

  • Dry Pasty Formula

    By on

    This formula is odd. It is completely dry with no juices in it whatsoever. I even looked at the can to make sure it wasn't expired! When you spoon it out of the container it has a paste consistency. My cat refused to eat it. Nothing against Chewy though-- they are great as always.

  • Strange consistency and colouring

    By on

    Just opened a can and not only was it covered in white grease, it also had a strange pasty type of consistency. Looked like a paste or even clay, rather than what it usually looks like. I've had this same problem recently with the Lamb formula (Unusually light coloured, dry, white grease at the top, pasty consistency that turned into a muddy or wet clay consistency after adding water). Both the cans say that the expiration date is 2019. I see that one person from last year had the same problem but i'm wondering if anyone else has been having it more recently too?? Have they been changing their formulas??

  • Somethings changed?

    By on

    I feel like somethings changed in the beefs formula. The wet food is really dry and thick (almost like a paste) and my cats, who used to love it, wont even touch it now. Unlike the chicken formula, which still has a lot of moisture or "liquid" when you open the can and seems more appetizing.

  • beef flavor

    By on

    The beef was really firm in the can and I had to add water to try and soften it up in order to get it out of the can and feed the animals.

  • solves a 2 cat eating issue

    By on

    One cat is alergic to chicken, one cat needs to have a grain free diet due to urinary issues on the horizon. This solves the problem!!!

  • My cat liked it

    By on

    After changing my cat's diet to a free grain and more organic line of food, we finally found a brand that he likes. At the beginning was a little challenging since he did not like the change but he seems happy with this brand for wet food.

  • I like it - my cats not so much sometimes...

    By on

    I think this is a good quality product, that does not contain carageenan, guar gum or xantham gum (which I am trying to avoid for an IBD kitty). My two cats don't seem to be overly enthusiastic about it, for the most part. I sometimes mix boiled chicken pieces in with it, and that's more of a hit with them.
