    The dry food. My cats really seem to like the dry food. The canned food not so much. They have to eat it because one of my cats just got out of the hospital she had an episode of pancreatitis. They will eat the canned food if really hungry Do you have any suggestions? Im very impressed with your service and how quickly you deliver! I had my order within 24 hours!! Thank you! Please let me know if u have anything else i can try for my cats,but it has to be something healthy because of my cat who had pancreatitis. Thank You!

  • Prescription Cat Food

    By on

    My cat had been having horrible digestive issues for around six weeks. The vet decided to put her on the wet version of this food to see if that would resolve the issue. We decided to try out this dry food (in hopes that my other cats would eat it and we could just have everyone free feed one type of food). After a couple of weeks we have yet to have any issues, other than my other cats don't like it. For all of the chemicals in the food I think the price should be lower, but it works for right now.

  • So good, they eat it when they shouldn't!

    By on

    Our Big Cat has been on this special diet for a few years. Recently I found out I could order it though Chewy without having to go to the vet every month to get a bag. And it's cheaper. What?! SCORE! Our Little Cat doesn't need this special diet, and really needs to put on weight. But for some reason she chooses this over her own food. No matter what I buy her. I guess it's good to know this food is delicious!

  • Royal Canin Kibble

    By on

    Our cat seems to love this food. He even prefers it over the same variety of wet food. My only concern is that because he is an older cat, it seems to run through him very quickly. Given a choice, our cat would select the kibble every time. That is why we give it to him very sparingly.

  • great bargain and service

    By on

    I bought my cat food and found that it is cheaper and far more convenient thru than anywhere else. I could not be happier with the service, and so are my cats!

    Waited too long to order our cat's food thru the Vet. Manufacturing plant's IT department had been hacked. (Who wants to hack a pet food manufacturer?) The Vet suggested Chewy, we went online and presto...just a few days later our cat, Ozzie, was chomping away at his food. Thanks for the quick turnaround. Prices were comparable to the Vet too. Thanks much.

  • RC Gastrointestinal diet

    Amazingly this arrived in one day. After the normal "what's this stuff" reaction all three kitties are eating this well. Seems to be helping my one IBD kitty and that the lower calories take some weight off all of them. Very pleased with Chewy.

  • Sensitive stomach

    By on

    My 14 year old cat started having trouble keeping any food or water down. He spent a while in the hospital and once he was released he was put on this food. It's been a life saver! He loves it and his digestion is almost back to normal. Chewy's delivery service was easy, super fast and cheaper than other sites I tried ordering from. I was so pleased I set up an auto delivery service with them. So happy.

  • Cornish Rex approves

    By on

    Our Cornish Rex is a bit overweight, suffers from separation anxiety, and will eat due to his anxiety causing him to become overweight. He also was throwing up quite a bit. We have 2 other Cornish Rex, who like this food, which is expensive but still cheaper than purchasing at the Vet's office. It has helped him cut back on overeating and throwing up. He is slimming down, and seems happier about being able to make the high jumps his brother and sister make! It is healthier for him too!

  • Loved by Cats with Sensitive Stomachs

    By on

    My five cats have been on Royal Canin Veterinary Formula Gastrointestinal Fiber Response, which worked to bring IBS under control for about four years. One sensitive cat was vomiting bile awaiting her breakfast and dinner. Switching to this GI moderate calorie has been gentler on her. The rest of them like it as well. I had intended to switch over eight days. But, they left the Fiber Response and ate only this dry food after five days. They also get canned food, which will be in another review. My vet has visited a Royal Canin facility, where the veterinary formulas are made separate from the over the counter brands, and was impressed.
