  • Cats Love this Food!

    By on

    I have three senior cats who free feed on this food and they absolutely love it. They are all different body compositions with various medical conditions, but each manage to maintain their individual weights and health on this food. We were on the rabbit protein food for a long time and they decided they were done with that and stopped eating it. I ordered this food hoping they would like the turkey and they took to it immediately. The high quality, limited ingredient, and grain free diet is important for our senior cats, one of which is food sensitive. They have all done very well on this food.

  • I Love Chewy!

    By on

    I can't say enough good things about chewy. My pets eat this brand of food as it's made in the USA and is limited ingredient. I struggle to find this food in my local pets stores. There is a lot of driving around, calling and having to pre-order. I decided to try chewy. The food arrived the next morning. Goodbye pet stores with teenagers who aren't really interested in working and stores with empty unreliable supply!

  • Cats and kittens approve

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Two cats and two kittens like this dry food. They like Orijen and love Farmina--Farmina has become too costly plus all flavors contain chicken fat and chicken is an ingredient I want to avoid. My preference is for them to eat only their wet, dehydrated or raw food, but the cats became addicted to kibble at the shelter and I cannot seem to break them of it :-( Anyway, Instinct's food is one of their wet foods so I do like the brand and this formula seems good.

  • Working well so far

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    After our previous brand reformulated their LID food, my cats did not like it and one got very sick from the new added ingredients. I purchased this and another brand of LID turkey dry food. So far they definitely prefer this one over the other (they refuse to eat the other). All 6 cats eat this and seem to really enjoy it. The best part is that it has good ingredients that seem to agree with my IBD cat. I'm pleased! Will keep buying it.

    All six of my cats will eat this. I have 2 cats with allergies to chicken. That being said all of the cats get a limited ingredient diet to avoid any issues with my allergy kids. I wish the protein was a little higher but it's a good food to alternate with in their diet.

  • You get what you pay for.

    By on

    I feel like the least I can do for the 4 cats that claw all my furniture, shed on every fabric surface in the house and ignore even my simplest wishes, is to feed them the most expensive food I can find.

  • Real food for real cats

    By on

    Easy to bite bits of what my 5 cats can agree on (the only dry food). The zip bag could use an improvement and doesn't always stay shut, so I typically "repackage it" breaking it down and putting it into several gallon size Ziplock bags. Have used product for more than 6 months after it was recommended for 2 of our cats with health issues.

  • Great limited ingredients dry cat food!

    By on

    I have three cats, one of which has a sensitive stomach. The two cats immediately ate this food with no hesitation and the cat with the sensitive stomach isn't bothered by this food, even with it being the dry option.

  • Great Food

    By on

    My cats had no trouble transitioning over to this brand and flavor. The limited ingredients seem to be helping the food allergies. It is terribly expensive but has more appropriate ingredients for our animals -- more meat! Not all the fillers. I believe this product did not have caarageen which I was trying to get around too.
