Kittens post weaning to 5-months-old, feed three time as much food as an adult cat of the same weight. Between 5-months and 1-year, feed your kittens 1.5-2 times as much food as an adult cat and start feeding kittens as adults after 1 year. For pregnant females, monitor and maintain as adequate source of food so that your pregnant or lactating cat can freely eat as she needs. Always maintain a clean water supply that your pregnant or lactating cat can easily access.

Transition Instructions

Mix approximately 25% of the new food in with the previous food for the first three days. For the next three days, mix half of the new food and half of the previous food for three days. Lastly, mix 25% of the previous food with the new food. At the end of this period, you will then be able to feed the new food to your dog solely.

Pumpkin

Helps support your pet’s skin and coat health, while an abundance of the amino acid cucurbitacin help eliminate parasites.

Coconut Flour

Contains Medium Chain Triglycerides (MTC's), which can help eliminate bacteria, sustain hunger levels and increase cognitive ability.

Sea Vegetables

Help balance blood pH levels and are a great source of fundamental minerals.

Chia Seed Oil

Packed with antioxidants, which help encourage a proper balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

Complete and Balanced Formula

Your cat will benefit from the variety of minerals in these recipes, including iron, copper, manganese, zinc proteinate, calcium iodate and selenium yeast. 

Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are also included because they are extremely important for your furry best friend, as they help support brain development and regulate blood pressure. Both types of fatty acids help maintain your pet’s immune system functions, too.

Vitamins E, A and D3 can help soothe and restore the health of your cat’s skin and coat, while vitamins B3 and B12 help break down fatty acids for healthy skin and proper digestion.

    Shocking Results: Please Read

    By catsoldier on Nov 22, 2021

    My cat is eating this to such a degree, I honesty am questioning if I was starving her! The pellet is small (smaller than Wellness) and great for all cats, esp. seniors. It smells rich; ingredients are primarily meat (no feather or grain), by a company with no current recalls, a huge bonus. Free of rosemary (which is suspect & in SO many products). Their sister product Inception is also good, tho, with ancient grains. She's gobbling this up. I also added a water fountain and she's drinking never before too! Healthy, soft, and I'd like to think improving from feline hyperesthesia syndrome, as well. A+ for how much she returns to the bowl, and not gaining weight too, I might add.

    My kitty is obsessed

    By SLT01 on Nov 22, 2021

    My kitty loves this dry food. It was a new one for us, and with all of the different proteins included I wasn’t sure about how it would be for her. She seems to digest it well. We don’t do dry food primarily..it’s mostly eaten as a snack, appetizer or dessert. But she would probably eat this one all the time. It’s nice too because she’s not a fan of the most common chicken and turkey or fish...so finding food she likes is challenging! So glad she is loving this one..and thankful to find something so different!

    Very yummy

    By ladycat1 on Oct 13, 2021

    My girl is really sensitive to potatoes and other starches and she's SO DAM PICKY!! I had a feeling she would like this because she loves ground beef (cooked) and thankfully she does!! I've had to relocate it 2 times because she is just great at getting into things she shouldn't be getting into. If your kid likes anything pork or beef related you'll probably have the same issue. It's healthy and she loves it so now it's on autoship

    Three liked it immediately

    By barb on Oct 7, 2021

    It was time to try a new food. My three liked it immediately. The contents/ingredients sound good--as good as another very high priced brand--and it would seem this company put some thought into the product. My kitties are not picky--I have to say that. If it's food, they're interested. If you're looking for a different food/brand, I recommend this one.

    This is the only food our cat will eat!

    By Trlrider1 on Sep 29, 2021

    After trying many different dry and canned foods, this one is what our cat will eat! Maybe it's the smaller kibble or the different meat proteins, we don't know, but we'll keep purchasing this food! Our other cat likes it too!

    Essence Ranch & Meadow cat kibble

    By ellyshayyatthay on Jun 24, 2021

    2 of my 4 cats are Abyssinian and smaller than the other 2 tabby's. Occasionally, the normal size kibble seems to catch in their throat, so I got excited when I first opened this bag of kibble. The Essence pellets measure about 1/4" round. The first feeding, all of the cats snarfed them down, but with each successive feeding, they ate less and less. The abys are nosing the Essence kibble off to the side or pushing it out of their dish and just eating their other kibble. The other 2 show no interest at all anymore.

    He likes it

    By Emmy on Jun 18, 2021

    My cat has lots of allergies so there's many high quality foods he's not able to eat. This had a good protein content, and nutritious ingredient. Plus he loves the taste so much that he kept trying to sniff the bag and look for bits of kibble!

    Yummy and Quality

    By Sarah on Jun 30, 2021

    My cat eats this all up. It's great that it doesn't have chicken, because she has allergies. It is so hard to find stuff on the market without chicken. We are happy! Picture irrelevant to the brand :)

    Good Quality

    By Jolene on Apr 18, 2021

    This food is great for my cats' sensitive tummies. Since I switched to this food my cats are no longer having litterbox issues. They tolerate the American Journey Duck flavor nicely as well, and I give that to them for variety, but I definitely want to make this number one in the rotation. I like that it has no chicken products in it, and no pea protein, potato, or other junk fillers. And it's a good price for having such high protein, and a good portion of that being animal-based protein. Also, my cats took to it right away and seem to like the taste, which is a relief since my cats can be very stubborn if they don't like something.

    There's no peas!

    By VallieSong on Apr 16, 2021

    It was really a struggle to find a high quality, grain-free dry cat food with no duck and no peas for my cat with allergies. I would like to feed all canned food, but I can't afford it, so I am feeding this mixed with warm water in addition to canned food. (He can't have raw, as he is FIV+.) Thankfully he's not a picky eater, but the other cats have tried to steal this, so it must taste good to their little carnivore taste buds.
