  • Excellent service and healthy food

    By on

    After ordering this cat food (for cats with diabetes) Chewy contacted my vet to obtain the required prescription, and within a few days after ordering, the package was delivered. My diabetic cat LOVES this food and thinks he is special getting it in his own private dining spot.

    My rescue cat loves this product, have used it for almost 2 years. Since it comes from Nevada I get it very fast. Your customer service people are great, Not only are they friendly but they know their stuff. They even ask me how my cats are, by name.

    My Athena was recently diagnosed with diabetes. She is super picky about her food to begin with, so I was nervous to switch her over to a new food. She loves this food! It has helped her to still get some of that crunch with her wet food. So happy!

  • very satisfied

    By on

    While my cat has only been on this food for a short time, he took to it the first feeding. I mixed it with the food he had, and is doing good. His sugar dropped by half within a week. I will definitely continue buying it.

  • Recommend this Cat Food for Diabetic Cats

    By on

    I found my cat had diabetes and had to start him with 2 shots a day. After a couple of weeks, my Vet recommended this food to help with his glucose levels. Within 3 months of starting with insulin, his glucose levels were down and I was able to wean him off the insulin and he is now free from the shots and the vet believes the food is helping maintain his levels in the acceptable range.

  • Good food but expensive!

    By on

    Our vet recently discovered that one of my 3 cats is diabetic and changed his diet accordingly, one good thing is that the other 2 cats can also consume this food. We just started using this food a month ago and up till now the cats have readily accepted it with few issues. The only complaint is the price and the small packaging, with 3 large cats it goes quickly and a larger size bag (and hopefully less expensive than 2 smaller bags) would be appreciated.

  • Rapid Delivery!

    By on

    This special food has helped save my kitty's life, a stray I took in who turned out to have out-of-control sugar levels due to diabetes. He's now remained in remission for almost 2 years, partly thanks to this food being his only diet. Well, of course, other than occasional people-food treats, you know how it is....lol.

  • Good stuff

    By on

    One of my two cats is diabetic-- and when he was first diagnosed about 4 years ago my Veterinarian prescribed this particular dry food. He also told me it would be just fine for my cat's non-diabetic brother as well. It has been wonderful. It isn't the only food they eat. Both enjoy "Fancy Feast" canned food daily as well as fresh fish and poultry a few times a week. However, they never seem to tire of the Purina Pro Plan DM and my diabetic cat is very healthy and his condition is stable.
