    They didn't like it.

    I thought for SURE my cats would like this kibble. They love fish....but like the chicken flavor, they sniffed it and walked away. The ingredients look healthy, but unfortunately, I will have to give both bags to a friend who feeds homeless cats. I tried.

    Exceptional Ingredients in a Dry Cat Food

    By on

    My 2 cats love this food even more than there wet. I usually get the chicken version but thought I would give Salmon a try, they seem to like it but I think they like chicken a little more, Also the chicken version has slightly more protein and fat. I wish the kibble was larger in size and not shaped like a little tube, when they are eating they end up pushing it out of the bowl like marbles making a mess on the floor. Because of the small size I don't hear much crunching, they end up eating more and faster.

    Fast Delivery - I wish there was a carb count available from Chewy.com

    By on

    My cat is diabetic. I'm forever looking for low carbohydrate foods. This one I believe is - however it is very difficult to find nutritional information 'as fed' for these foods. It would be a five-star review if that information was available. In my research I've found that the thinking is that this is 6% carbohydrate as fed (meaning the portion is per serving/carbohydrates)...difficult to manage diabetic cat without this information. Thank you

    Kitty loves it! Eats very little!

    By on

    My cat gobbled the first teaspoonful of the Salmon, but it filled her quickly. It’s been this way every day since, like two weeks. And yet I don’t think this small bag is going to last her for a month. It appears she is in fine condition for a 17 year old cat, but has lost weight since starting Dr Elsey’s cleanprotein. Probably because her previous food was full of carbs. Very satisfied so far.

    Cat Won't Eat It

    This objectively seems like a good product, but my cat will not eat it. He eats most anything else but leaves this in the bowl.Unfortunate, since it cost $50.

    We feed our Tigger, Bengal wet food. He's not fond of dry food. Our Persian, Willie, eats wet and dry. Low and behold they both love this food!

    Fantastic food for my diabetic fur babies!

    By on

    Being a research-ninja I did a lot of it before I bought this bag 1) because it is food for my precious fur babies and 2) because it’s not cheap! The one thing that impressed me was that without fillers the pure protein would fulfill their hunger and they wouldn’t continually go back to nibbling off and on every hour or so...and they were right. I typically put down 1 1/12 cups in the morning when I leave for work and come home to about 1/2 left with their old combination food. The first time I did that with CleanProtein I came home and was really concerned because it looked like they barely ate anything, when in fact they did. I then watched them and they would go to the bowl and Being a research-ninja I did a lot of it before I bought this bag 1) because it is food for my precious fur babies and 2) because it’s not cheap!

I then watched them and they would go to the bowl and eat 4-5 bites and be done...wow, that was at least a 50% decrease from their old mix. So actually the higher cost is about equivalent to the less expensive grain-free/limited ingredient diet because they ate less AND there aren’t any fillers in Dr. Elsey’s. I’m impressed and will continue to buy this keep my 15 year old diabetic babies as healthy as I can. I just got my first order of the big bag!! It takes a lot to impress this natural skeptic, but this did it. Oh and I buy the kitty litter too and I’m not going back to the other brands. … more

    A timely discovery

    By on

    We were very concerned when discovered that the EVO salmon and herring formula cat food was out of production. Luckily we discovered Dr Elsey's clean protein, and our cats are very happy!

    Helped my diabetic cat!

    By on

    I switched my newly diagnosed diabetic cat to low-carb canned food and prescription diabetic dry. His blood glucose numbers didn't really improve much. I decided to lower his carbs even more by switching the dry out to Dr. Elsey's Clean Protein. Almost immediately, his blood glucose began to improve dramatically. Cats are obligate carnivores and their bodies don't handle high carb foods well, which almost all dry foods are and even many canned foods. Dr. Elsey's only has 4% carbs and no grains or fillers of any kind. I highly recommend it, not only to help PREVENT future issues like diabetes in your cat, but certainly if you already have a diabetic cat that you can't get completely off of I switched my newly diagnosed diabetic cat to low-carb canned food and prescription diabetic dry.
