Rated 5 out of 5 by Janet Excellent food
Being a vet tech, I am very careful about the food I feed my pets. Several years ago my older cat developed IBS. I have been through about every brand of cat food available trying to find one that she could tolerate. She ate a prescription diet for about a year but grew tired of it and I found her coat and general health were declining. Orijen has been a real blessing. She loves the food and her coat and attitude are much improved. The best part - I can now feed both my cats the same food!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KHAOS HARD TO FIND FOOD
KITTY CANNOT HAVE CHICKEN OF ANY KIND. SHE IS A SENIOR, HARDLY ANY TEETH LEFT AND IS AN EXOTIC. SHE CAN BE VERY PICKY AND WHEN THEY HAVE AN ALLERGY IT IS HARD TO FIND FOOD WITH NO CHICKEN. 99.9 PERCENT OF ALL FOODS HAVE CHICKEN OF SOME SORT OR ANOTHER. DON'T BELIEVE IT? READ SOME LABELS, YOU'LL BE SHOCKED...TUNA REALLY ISN'T TUNA. THE SHAPE OF THE FOOD WAS CONCERNING AS SHE NEEDS LITTLE BITS FOR HER FEW TEETH BUT SINCE IT IS THIN PIECES IT SEEMS TO BE OKAY. SHE ATE IT WITH NO PROBLEM AND IT HAS THE HIGH PROTEIN AN OLDER AND EXOTIC CAT NEEDS. THE STRONG SMELL HELPS AS WELL FOR SENIORS. IT'S PRICEY THOUGH. SHE HAS A WET FOOD DIET TO GO ALONG WITH THIS AS WELL OR I PROBABLY COULDN'T AFFORD TO GIVE IT TO HER. CATS NEED WET FOOD AND THIS IS JUST FOR HER TO HAVE SOMETHING WHENEVER SHE CHOOSES. YES SHE IS A FREE FEEDER BUT SHE ALSO CONTROLS HER OWN WEIGHT. WE ACTUALLY HAVE TO MAKE SURE SHE KEEPS WEIGHT ON, EVEN AS A YOUNGSTER. SHE IS VERY HIGH ENERGY EVEN FOR A SENIOR AND THIS FOOD SEEMS TO FIT IN WELL.

I'd prefer feeding my two cats entirely wet food due to a history of urinary blockage with my male cat, but I have to offer some dry food otherwise he seeks out electrical cords and loves to target phone chargers. I prefer dry foods that offer as high a protein level without a lot of fat and this one definitely fits the profile. During the transition from a previous food to this one, I will admit, my two cats were not too fond of eating this food and the amount of food they typically intake seemed to decrease for about a week. Both have transitioned completely now and are enjoying their dry food. I have noticed a sheen to my cats fur and less dander production with this food. They also have been throwup- free which is always great for all of us. I don't have anything negative overall to say about this food except the odor that lingers throughout the room from this food is simply horrendous. I had to buy a scented wall plug in to put next to the food because the odor is so unpleasant. If I could eliminate that it would be a 5 star product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maddie9 My cat really loves this
I use this as a snack because my cat is on a prescription urinary food ( which I also get from Chewy ), she can hardly wait til I open the bag. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dannyjoe My cats like this better than any canned/wet foods!
My two cats LOVED this food. I put some down at same time as their favorite wet food, and they went for this! It was meant to be for between wet-meal snacking, since they could both use some add'l weight.
Ultimately, I did stop using this food, because it caused sticky feces that didn't work too well with the Breeze cat litter pellets I use. Else I would have given 5-stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katlady777 Very happy with the product.
My 13 year old cat was getting overweight and I was concerned about health issues. Have been using several varieties of another high quality brand over the last 2 years and have been very satisfied with that brand. Cat liked it and had no feeding problems.
However, when I saw Orijen listed with Chewy.com I decided to try it. Was impressed with the list of ingredients and what it did NOT contain such as grains and fillers. Thought that it could help my cat's weight problem. Cat loves the food and seems very content. Doesn't even beg for treats anymore so I know that the food is giving him what he needs nutritionally. Will continue to use this product. The higher cost is not an issue as the cat does not require as much food as he did with cheaper brands.
The product was delivered in only a few days and I am very happy in purchasing from Chewey. This is the second purchase for me and they now have a loyal customer. Have recommended them to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaM Five cats love it!
Cats are finicky. We have 5 however, who love this food. One is a diabetic in remission and I needed a dry food to leave out while on vacation. After weaning them over to this without the diarrhea side effects others have noted, his glucose levels have been steady. Hopefully I've found the magic dry food for those times he has to be on it for convenience. Expensive but worth it. The smell doesn't bother me - it smells like any other quality fishy cat food. Ash content is 8% and I'm not sure if that is good or bad. So far no troubles on that end. I've already reordered - this time the 15 lb bag.
