    Guilt-Free Food

During that time, I've been feeling guilty about feeding her this food as it has ingredients that cause me concern. Her condition worsened in spite of constant veterinary care and following textbook medical protocol for IBD. (I'm not blaming the prescription food.) The next step was exploratory surgery for biopsy. After consulting my vet, we decided to "go off the reservation" and try 2 non-prescription foods I had researched. FirstMate was one of these foods. We've been feeding this Turkey formula to Cricket for a over a month and are very happy with the results. The biopsy confirmed an IBD diagnosis so unfortunately Cricket is on steroids. However, I'm hopeful the steroids combined with a high-quality pure food will give her gut a chance to heal a bit if that's possible. Her constant diarrhea and bi-weekly vomiting has stopped. Her incessant hunger remains but that is part of IBD. She was constantly anxious and potentially in pain when she was having an IBD flare-up. For the time being, all of that is no-longer present. As a result of feeding Cricket FirstMate, my cat food guilt has subsided and I no longer lose sleep over what I'm feeding my cats. … more

    Not for my cat

    By myCatsFriend on Aug 4, 2019

    Ingredient list looked good to human, the food smelled good to human. But my cat refused to eat it, I needed to mixed it with other food, but she still didnt have much interest in eating it. Btw, the food was quiet oily when I touched it. I don't recall I had ever toughed a wet food this oily. (But the Ingredient list looked good to human, the food smelled good to human.

    Great Ingredients, Poor Can Design That May Cause Mold

    By on

    1 Can arrived slightly opened- almost imperceptible. However, the can had rotted out and turned to dry, dusty mold which spilled over all the other cans. Chewy refunded, of course, but the problem is the way the can is designed- the top is so delicate it could be opened easily in transport and you wouldn't know. Just a word of caution.

    Not popular in our house.

    By on

    The quality seemed good so I was hopeful, but none of our six cats were excited about this food and since it’s through Chewy I am stuck with it all. Kind of a bummer as the ingredients are overall good.
