  • Great for cats with megacolon

    By on

    You can find a lot of discussion online about how a high fiber, dry cat food is bad for cats with constipation issues. However, this food seems to do the trick for my kitties. It apparently has the right mix of soluble and insoluble fibers to keep things "going". I have four older cats. I'd fed all of them a dry Science Diet food most of their lives, and all did really well with that food until three developed constipation issues as they got older. Two were diagnosed with early megacolon and one had occasional constipation but never had to go to the vet for it. I now feed all the cats this food (with my vet's blessing), and all are doing well with no more trips to the vet for constipation issues You can find a lot of discussion online about how a high fiber, dry cat food is bad for cats with constipation issues.

I now feed all the cats this food (with my vet's blessing), and all are doing well with no more trips to the vet for constipation issues. The oldest megacolon cat (age ~13) has been eating this for 2-3 years now, and is in good health other than age-related eye problems. The younger (age 11) was just switched, and I've found he does best with a combination of this and canned food (Blue Buffalo Mature) with some extra water mixed in, since he doesn't seem to get enough water on his own … more

  • Much needed cat food

    By on

    I ran into a problem with my vet. They were out of the prescription diet food my cat requires. I was able to contact chewy and order from them quickly and easily. I gave them my vet info so they could provide the prescription needed. They did the rest. Thanks so much.

  • Meep's crunchies

    By on

    My sweet Kitty, Meep has always had difficulty going to the potty. When she was just a couple of months old, our vet prescribed Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Fiber Response Dry Cat Food. I usually buy it from the yet but I recently had ankle surgery and could not drive. I decided to try Chewy and I will continue to buy Meep's food from Chewy. The ordering process was so quick and easy. An added bonus, even with shipping, I still paid less than buying from the vet!

  • worked very well for our cats

    By on

    we have a Bengal cat with GI issues (e.g., soft stools). from experience with a previous Bengal, we have found this to be common. per our vet's recommendation, we tried the Royal Canin GI Fiber Response, and problem solved. we still feed mostly wet foods, but this dry food keeps him regular and in good form. as a side benefit, our other cats also like the GI food, and it has improved their trips to the litter box as well. all around favorable results for our household.

  • All of my cats love it!

    By on

    I have one cat with Mega Colon and this product was highly recommended for her. Since I can't segregate my cats at feeding time, they are all getting this food all day, along with their wet food twice a day. I have only been feeding it for about a week, but she is doing much better, and the other cats are having better potty times, too. They love the taste!

  • Works and very stinky poop

    By on

    My 16 yr. old cat has dealt with horrible constipation for years. This works, I don't like that it has meat by-products in it. I give him raw also. The dry stuff is addicting to him. I give him 1/2 the amt. they say to use. The smell is putrid, and I don't think anything else will work. He still poops out of the box, and I was told it would change, by a vet tech. who uses it too. Too much creates gas in him that is not plesant smelling either. It is my last resort.

  • I wish it didn't cost so much

    By on

    Food is wonderful, it helped my cat almost right away. I would love to be able to use it all the time but I have 3 cat's and with the high cost I won't be able too. I love my cat's and would do anything I can for them but I live on SS and simply can not afford this wonderful product.

    This is the first time I have used Chewy, my cat Jack is staying with my daughter and ran out of his special food and Chewy got it there for him in 3 days. Great job, will use Chewy for all my pet needs.

  • My cat Loves it!

    By on

    My tiny 10 year old Manx rescue kitty has had so much problem with food digestion. She vomited every day or so and also had hairball problems. She is also pretty picky about food. After a complete health check and blood tests showed her to have no other health problems, our vet suggested trying a prescription diet for intestinal sensitivities. My cat ate this right away and has been feeling much better since starting this food. Her stools are bigger, no hairball problems or vomiting.

  • great food for constipated kitties

    By on

    My cat Tumbles has a problem with constipation. He has been eating this fiber response food for about a year now and no problems with his bowels until about a week ago. back to the vet he went for a clean out. I think maybe he ate some of the others dry food. the other kitties like the food too! I guess maybe everyone will be eating this now! love it!
