Rated 5 out of 5 by MarieF The best
Even my ten-year-old cat who won't touch any cat food but a dry kibble he's been eating chows down on this food. Plus it's so easy to use. Highly recommended this turned out to be their favorite flavor and my oldest cat that 10 year old also likes the salmon fish one

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnneB Cats Love It!
Really appreciate having a clean, natural product to feed our cats and they are crazy for Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried cat food! We've tried four of the flavors and they liked every one (especially the Chick, chick, chicken). Initially, we rehydrated it per instructions, but our cats have never liked 'wet' food. So we just crumble up the bits, toss with some kibble, and keep bowls of fresh water next to their food dishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Berlin Like that it has probiotics added, but still freeze dried raw
For the price, I think it is the most cost effective. I like that they added the probiotics too, which means I do not need to buy a separate probiotic for my cat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kat1953 Nuggets are good, Crushed Nuggets are Not
My cats run hot and cold on Chewy's products. When they like it, they really like it ;-). Regardless, they definitely do not like the crushed nuggets and will not eat them when mixed with water. I sometimes throw away 1/8 of the bag because of the crushed nuggets. I still recommend the product because it's easy to store and prepare.

Good clean food that delivers optimum nutrition just like it says. It smells good and must taste the same way because when I crack open the bag, everyone comes running! Like the convenience of the package, cats enjoy the contents so we are all happy.....even the dog tries to get in on the action lol.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jenn6301 Disappointed in change in ingredients
I was initially excited to include S & C freeze dried formula into my cats' rotation; however, they recently changed their ingredients to include pea fiber and menadione in their poultry flavors. These two ingredients are not acceptable in my opinion, and I will not use S & C products nor would I recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrooklynJen A great healthier option
I have 3 cats and all love Stella & Chewy's dehydrated raw food. I serve it to them slightly hydrated with warm water to make a wet tuna consistency. Of the 3 flavors I rotate for them this is one of the cats' favorite. The other 2 flavors we buy are the turkey and the chicken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meekabookitten Foster kittens LOVE S&C
As a kitten foster parent, we've tried all sorts of different dry and wet foods for our litters. Stella and Chewy's Duck Duck Goose is one of the favorites. It is very smelly, and soft so their little mouths have an easy time chewing it. Beyond the fosters, all three cats in our house give this food 4 paws up! The best thing about this is it's a healthy food they'll eat like a junk food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fairydust6963 What A Surprise!
My 14 year cat has IBD and cancer. I had gotten used to him not eating for a meal or 2 every couple of days. I have gone through a ridiculous amount of different foods trying to find something he'll eat. He is ridiculously picky. Also, almost everything upsets his stomach. I actually bought this by accident thinking it was something else I had given him to try a while ago. My vet had put him on a "prescription" food that was full of by products and things I really don't want to give him. He refused to eat it anyway so I gave him a couple of bites of this and he loses his MIND over it! He has not missed one meal in over 2 weeks. When I put it down he actually starts purring. I don't know how long he has left but knowing that I am giving him something of quality that he loves, I'm happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Conniekc11 I & kitty like this product. EZ to prepare-the cost a little pricey
Stella & Chewy's is a great choice if you want good food for your cat. Other freeze-dried food that I tried my kitty wouldn't eat. This brand the Duck/Goose variety he eats it all w/o leaving a few morsels for later, which is what he does with all the other brands(grain free top brands) of wet food I rotate in the diet. As I remember he wasn't fond of the seafood of this brand -but every cat's different. Mine can be finicky, He doesn't like the stew-type canned food for instance.

Finally, a high-quality food that 'Bella Bella Cinderella' will eat. >^..^< Bella is a senior rescue kitty with food allergies. My vet wanted Bella off chicken and suggested duck, rabbit, or venison. It's been an expensive adventure finding a food that piques Bella's taste buds. Sadly, her favorite frozen raw duck food has been discontinued.
Stella and Chewy's DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE is saving the day!! Bella enjoys it straight from the bag (there is plenty of water available) and occasionally will eat this freeze-dried food in pate form.
DDG is pricey but well worth the money. I'm no longer tossing uneaten wet food and feel good knowing my kitty is enjoying her groceries. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by CatMc One cat likes it but my elderly cat doesn't
I bought this product based on the wonderful reviews, thinking that I finally found something that my 20 year old cat would like. Unfortunately she doesn't. My 11 year old cat does like it but he prefers it sprinkled over his kibble rather than mixed with water. He also likes me to toss it for him to chase before he eats it, like he would a regular cat treat. I'm fairly certain that I won't buy this product again, but I'd still recommend it with an explanation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NamasteEmily WOW--The BEST Food Ever says my 3 cats!
So, I have been reading the reviews of this for a long time and I'm not sure why I didn't try it sooner. My cats have been eating the Primal Raw Dehydrated food for some time but recently turned their noses at it. I ordered this for them and WOW. All three of them love it!! Even the one that didn't really care of the dehydrated foods. My 3 cats rarely agree on any one food in particular but they all seem to LOVE this stuff. I also feed them the brand "I and Love and You" canned foods, as well as this one. I will see if they have different flavors, but as far as quality and like-a-bility goes I do give this a RAVE rating and review! 2 paws up :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by kddCT Not my cat's favorite flavor
I am overall thrilled with the Stella & Chewy freeze dried cat diets! I have completely weaned my cat off of addictive and carbohydrate-filled dry food using their products. I couldn't achieve that with high quality canned foods. He no longer sits at the water bowl for a long time trying to make up for the lack of moisture in his diet. Unfortunately, with that being said, my cat does not like this Duck Duck Goose variety of their product. I won't use the varieties that contain fish as they are not recommended for cats, so that leaves us with the Chicken and Turkey varieties. Be sure to rehydrate this food - that is half the point of using it! Of course it is pricey; one bag should feed one cat for an entire week, give or take.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TenneSue Mushey
I find when I rehydrate these Stella&Chewy morsels, it comes out mushey/gummy. Not sure if that is why none of my 4 cats are big fans of it, but this is the second time I have tried the duck duck goose (due to all the great reviews) to give my kitties variety, but they continue to show very little interest (compared to Primal, which they seem to love, and does not come out mushey). Seems to have very good ingredients, but due to lack of interest, for us, we have to give it a thumbs (paws) down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TequilaSunset2060 Grace Loves It
My Gracie has hepatic lymphoma and my holistic veterinarian suggest I give her a diet of raw based foods. Even some of the best natural canned wet foods still contain gluten and /or some other form of starch for a binder. These starches turn to sugar, which feeds cancer. I was shocked to see that the crude protein of this product is 40% and most top dollar canned foods it's only 9-12%. Miss Gracie loves it and we are on our second bag so far this evening. She loves that there's REAL bone for her to chomp on, just like if she were a wild kitty. Plus, it doesn't smell up my house like the traditional canned foods!! It still has wet kitty food smell, but some of the ones I had caused me to perpetually burn incense to keep the odor at bay.

Rated 1 out of 5 by abcd small ants in the food
I've always kept my bowl clean for my kitten. However after I mixed stella&chewy with water small ants(many) started coming out. This food is palatable and nutritious I thought I would stick to this food for a long time and have this as my kitten's primary diet. I know this doesn't happen to all the stella&chewy bags but I won't be taking the chance.

by Morgan44 Excellent choice for growing kitten
My kitten Higgs is now 4 months old and he loves his Stella and Chewy food. He always comes right to the food bowl when I give it to him! He is growing so well, his coat looks fabulous, and his poo has stopped smelling so horribly. Before, when I tried regular wet food, it was just nasty. This is my first cat, and I had no idea how BAD regular, store-bought cat food was for them. It is absolutely criminal. This may be expensive, but the packages last me quite a while (3 weeks per package) because I also feed him Evo dry food. At least none of it goes to waste, because he enjoys every last drop! He loves the Duck and the Sealicious flavors especially.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heynonynony A good way to start on raw
After switching my cat to grain-free, I started looking up raw foods to introduce into her diet slowly. Considering Stella and Chewy's is one of the cheaper brands on the market for this, I've been very pleased with how well she's taken to the Duck, Duck Goose formula. I tend to over-hydrate the mix so that 1) I can force my cat to take in more moisture in her diet, and 2) I can use it as a wet topping for other grain-free cat foods while her taste buds and natural stomach bacteria get used to raw foods. My cat has been very happy with the food, so I plan on making the Duck/Goose formula a permanent part of my cat's food rotation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharlieGracie Cat goes crazy for Stells & Chewy's
If I could afford to feed this strictly to my kitties, I would! I use it as a treat and occasionally mix a handful up with water as a special dinner for my cat Charlie - a domestic short hair Tuxedo. He goes crazy for this stuff. My female Gracie is indifferent but eats it when it's in front of her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lotsacatz good for picky eater
I bought this because i have a dry food junkie, and this was recommended as a possible way to shift him into more wet food. What I like is that I can add quite a bit more water than the package directs, and he will still eat it. this extends the life of the bag (and makes it less expensive per serving) and gives him the moisture in his diet that he really needs. A word of caution - if you have a cat who makes crystals in his urine, as this one does, you can't feed this exclusively because of the ground bone. However, as a once in a while add on to perk up appetite and get liquid into him, it is great.
