My cats don't like it, but since I got a case of it, they are going to get it anyway. that's cats for you. My outdoor ferals eat it last, but they eat it. The indoor cats re spoiled and picky, most of them leave it in their dishes. I will continue to offer it to them until they have consumed it all
I used to buy Dave's chicken and turkey varieties from a local petfood store. I have multiple cats and thought the 12 oz cans would be easier, and, initially, thought the ingredients were good. But after a 4th cat developed hyperthyroidism (3 dead), I went online to try to find out what was causing this terrible trend. And I found that sometime in 2016 the AAFCO directed petfood companies to include selenium in their petfoods, HOWEVER, they did not specify which source of selenium to be used. And most petfood companies opted to use a toxic form called sodium selenite. (? I guess it is the cheapest?) Have you ever cared for a cat with hyperthyroidism? It is a nightmare. Their metabolism rages and they reduce down to skin and bones, they have terrible diahrrea, so then you have to worry about hydration, and their fur gets sticky and matted. There is no real cure. If there is a thyroid tumor, you can opt for surgery-if your cat is healthy enough for surgery. I read some articles that say that radioactive iodine treatment is safe, and some that say not. Methimazole thyroid med does not cure the problem, it just manages it. However methimazole can also worsen the diahrrea. If you love your cats and you don't want to have to worry about all of that, then do the easiest thing and simply don't give your cats any food with sodium selenite.
I'd put less stars but one cat is able to eat it ok. One cat wouldn't rush to the bowl to eat the food and would eventually eat it later. The last two times I've given in, I've found vomit around the house. They're both fine with the turkey cans though.
My senior cat loved it, very mushy texture and smells really chickeny. My young cat didn’t care for it, she isn’t picky but maybe it’s too healthy for her lol
I have been feeding my 5 cats this food for almost a year now and they love it! One of my cats suffers from IBD and this food has worked the best for us.
I have several rescue cats and they like all of the Daves products. A couple are fussy eaters but not with these cat foods. I do recommend Daves cat foods and will continue to buy it.
I picked this up bc there was a sale and also my usual wet food has increased sharply in price. The cats love this! They start sniffing around as soon as I open the can and gobble it up much faster than any other wet food we've tried. My girl sometimes gets an upset stomach with new wet food but she loved this. I'm going to see if it works for my friends who have a picky cat!
Our two felines Paris (5) and Rome (4) eagerly polish this food off. They are used to eating both pate and shreds with gravy, so the pate consistency of this one is not a problem for them. Plus they are not what I would call "picky eaters", they are both more the voracious type (we don't feed them ANY dry food, so they are both super enthusiastic when breakfast and dinner roll around.) We like that this is offered in the large 12.5 oz cans, because of the value (less $$ per ounce for good quality food), and the fact that the cans last longer than the 5.5 oz ones (or 3 oz Fancy Feast) that we have in the rotation. The cost savings is significant over time. All in all, a win!
These cats did NOT hesitate. I don’t think they even sniffed the food. They just straight up ate it up. Good job, Dave!
My senior cat and I are a great fan of this cat food, which is good quality and a great deal per case of 12 oz cans. Since my senior cat no longer does well with seafood, this chicken formula is purrfect. Ships fast and convenient which I also like, especially since my local pet store often runs out.
