good for ibd

I've 3 cats with ibd, and 1 (of course) doesn't like rabbit. So he gets this. He's no longer getting sick all the time and is seems to work for him. If this doesn't work, my other 2 are on Instinct Limited Ingredient Rabbit dry. Neither have ANY fish, poultry, or gums. Great stuff

My senior cat LOVES this food!

My little old man just loves this kibble! Even with only 4 teeth! He has a lot of food sensitivities and it was a real challenge to find him crunchy food without any fish/fish oil or poultry products. He has been thriving on this stuff which is a supplement to his main meals of wet food. Not a fan of the canned version of this tho, for whatever reason.

Great food!

My 12 year old Abyssinian has food allergies, so we struggle to find foods that don't contain his allergens and that he feels are worthy to eat. He LOVES this food! This appears to be a high-quality food that is mostly novel proteins with no potatoes, no grain, no green peas. He previously was eating a prescription venison food but was just barely maintaining his weight. He is now gaining weight, rarely vomits, he is more playful, and his coat is super soft and shiny.

They loved it!!

We have two kittens. Since the moment the package arrived they started chewing at the bag and this first month they have loved it. We bought this in the first place because we had researched on what to feed them and noticed this brand tends to appear on the top of quality by animal experts and where happily surprised that it isn't that expensive. Another thing we love is that their fur is now so soft and bright and they shed less, so my allergies have drastically diminished. Besides, it is good for all life stages. 100% recommended!!

Started ok, but ...

At first, my cat seemed to like this ok, but now it has to go in the donation bin. Maybe it's the coconut flour? I have no idea. I'm sad that another chicken-free is not a hit.

7 Month Old Kitten

My precious new kitten loves this food. She does itch, mainly her ears until there raw & this food seemed to help, guess she has an allergy? Price is a little steep but worth it, I will buy this again & hope for the best.

Great food but not this bag

5 stars because I use to buy this a pet supplies plus before they stop carrying it but 2 stars for the bag I bought on chewy. I don't know if they changed the way they process the food but this bag had lots of food particles on the kibble, several sticks or some kind of I don't know in the bag and 2 of my 4 cats are starting to tear chunks out of their face.

great for those with food intolerances

We have a Maine Coon mix who has sensitivities to foods; over the years we have been figuring out that he can't eat chicken, seafood (super sensitive) and now I think peas are a problem as well. Dealing with a long hair cat with runny poos is no fun. This food has helped. It is next to impossible to find a dry or wet food that doesn't have any of those things AND that he and the rest will eat. They all eat this, thank goodness. This and BB red meat feast wet has been the best combo.

Healthy for my cats and ferrets

I added this as a second food for my critters. It has great ingredients. My ferrets took to this food really easily and quickly. If you know ferrets you know they are picky eaters and you have to slowly introduce a new food.
