  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A life saver!

    By on

    My cat developed diabetes as a result of being treated with a steroid for IBD. He was able to come off insulin with the use of DM and is doing well. And you won't find a better price anywhere else.

  • 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.

  • My 18yr old seems to love it!

    By on

    My cat has been diabetic for a few years and likes the Hill's dry food but this seems to be his favorite. I got a bag from my vet as a sample and started using it as a "treat" when giving him his insulin and he loves it. When I leave him some at night it is gone in the am. He also liked the canned pate version too.

  • Belle does not like

    By on

    This food is very expensive and my cat will not eat it. Not even if there is nothing else. Since the food is very expensive, I wish there would be a sample package. I am going to donate this food to a local shelter.

  • Diabetic Cat

    My cat was diagnosed diabetic and prescribed this food. After about four months, he is no longer diabetic. In addition to this food however we did acupuncture and holistic supplements.

  • So yummy even my non-diabetic cats love it!

    By on

    Altho I do all canned DM for my newly diagnosed diabetic cat, I like to give her some dry for overnight when the canned food isn't fresh. She loves it! Yet so do my other cats. So I have to be discreet when feeding her and offer them some as well. It's hard enough managing a disease for a loved one. However is made so much easier when they love their prescription food.

  • Great Food

    By on

    I received a prescription for this food from my vet. My cats love it and its the first food they go to. Chewy's turnaround from receiving this prescription and shipping it out was great. I highly recommend Chewy for all your feline needs.
