  • Over processed

    By on

    My cat will not eat these giblets and will only lick off the gravy. What is left is an odd supposed piece of chicken that has honeycomb holes and looks totally unnatural and more over processed than a Chicken McNugget. This is an over priced and useless product.

  • My picky cat loves it

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I have a very picky cat with food allergies who is limited to certain foods. He will eat both this flavor and the turkey as well. I like that it has not artificial colors or flavors and yet is still made by science diet. My vet, who is an all-cat specialist with over 40 years in the field, recommends science diet and says it is one of the only brands who actually has done extensive research into feline nutrition.

  • Tried it But...

    By on

    I must have very fussy cats who are particular about the texture of their food. I bought based on the ingredients but it was an experimental failure with my cats. Sadly this was not a hit and I will be donating the rest to our local shelter.

  • More Natural, Better ingredients

    By on

    I have 3 picky cats. Only 2 will eat this. I noticed better gut enzymes for them. Their stools were harder & they didn't get loose bowels like alot of wet food causes. Its great seeing Meat as the 1st ingredient along with others. Keep up the good job. Need more meat varieties besides the 2 flavors.

  • My cat is crazy about the Ideal Balance

    By on

    We have tried a number of canned foods for may cat. She has a very sensitive stomach. Also she has had to have teeth removed so finding a food she can eat has been challenging. Meggie is a small cat so the smaller can is perfect for one day divided into four portions; there is no leftover. If we do save the food until the next day it still smells good the next day after storing covered in the refrigerator. I still have to mash the food up so she can eat her portion. So if there was a minced variety that would be very helpful. Also a cover that fitted the food would be a nice addition in each case.

    No longer do I have to worry if I can find my cat's special food, as Chewy has taken care of that. Ordering online, might seem like an odd thing to do for cat food, but I tell you, the convenience sold me. They even called me to tell me that the flavor I wanted was on backorder, I told them a different flavor would be fine. I would never go back to buying cat food at the vets or pet store. Chewy is my SOURCE! Thanks so much!
