After a few years on the prescription renal diets, my senior cat is THRILLED to eat this food, which smells fantastic compared to the hills and Royal Canin brand renal support. Granted, those brands probably saved his life long enough to support partial recovery, but He really is appreciative whenever he gets a can of dave’s ( restricted phosphorus flavor ONLY) . The other thing that has helped him retain hydration is the wellness morsels chicken & chicken liver packet ( just the juices! But it keeps him hydrated ! The solids get tossed… but it saved him… And only the chicken & chicken liver flavor is low enough in phosphorous & protein… very important! )
I bought this for my girl Katniss who is showing signs of early renal disease. Thankfully she liked it. It had a weird texture but the cats didn’t mind
I have read the comments of others who have tried this food and said their cats would not eat it. I have 3 elderly cats with kidney disease. They would not eat any of the "prescription diet" foods. I ordered this hoping I could get them to eat. At first, it seemed very dry. So I added moisture to it. I poach chicken for one of my other cats and saved the poaching water. I just added some of that to the food. If I don't have that, I just add a little water and mash it up until it's more like a pate. Using this food along with a couple of supplements--Aminavast, vetriscience renal essentials, and Pet Wellbeing kidney support gold has helped my cats carry on for several years. They do not get any dry kibble food.
What do you feed a 17 yr old cat that has both CKD and Diabetes. Most CKD foods are hight in carbs, in fact the Rx food my vet put my cat on has 39% carbs (DMB). Then a year later, my CKD cat now has diabetes. The vet's answer was to keep my cat on the Rx food and start insulin. I figured there has to be an alternative. How can you fight diabetes when you're eating the equivalent of a donut with your low phosphorous CKD food? So I searched and searched, and I came up with Dave's, which only has 10.26% carbs DM.... my cat likes it too, so far, although who knows for how long. I do add a teaspoon of hot water to it and make it a bit mushier. Trying to get her onto a better diet before I have to start her on insulin so I'm hoping this works or at least helps her to go into diabetic remission. Fingers crossed.
My Cats Love This Dave Restricted diet Dave will give u a free can
Bunnybutt will not eat this can food. Oompah will not eat it either, nor will my feral cats. I was hoping to get them on something healthier for her kidney issues. I purchased a entire case, not even thinking they wouldn't like it. Not even the feral
My cat, Lionel, was recently diagnosed with CKD. It is the result of an infection called Triaditis. :( Anyway, I tried samples of a few Vet Diets and nope, he would have none of them. So I read about Dave’s low phosphorus food. I tried phasing it in to his old food; and nope. He figured me out. I tried a few times with no luck. I need him to eat, so I made my own food and mingle that with food he will eat; (Instinct, Wellness, Weruva Wx). Thank you Chewy for offering so many varieties. Maybe someday, you will allow consumers to piece together their own variety packs. I love Chewy.
Dave's was nice enough to send me a free can to try. My picky CKD boy ate that can, so I ordered a case from Chewy. Now he won't eat it. I put it out as a last resort and he might have a couple licks and then leaves it. Agree with other reviewers that it is dry for a puree. Tried adding homemade chicken broth to thin it and make more appealing but he still won't go for it
I wish I had read the reviews first, but I was just happy to find a non prescription low phosphorus cat food. Mr Picky doesn’t like it. I will try adding some liquid, but I think it’s a no-go.
Not my CKD cat's favorite food, but she likes it okay. It's been useful to keep around as a variety option for times when she is bored of all her prescription foods. The texture is thicker than usual for a puree. Not much gravy/juice. Might be off putting for some cats, but mine doesn't seem to care. It also freezes and reheats well.
