This irresistible food makes it easier for you to bond with your pet with gently cooked, bite-sized chunks of real tuna & natural ingredients with added vitamins and minerals.

    No Tuna for My Cats

    By on

    My two cats enjoy the Metabolic Chicken, so I decided to try the tuna. Not to their liking! After two days of sniffing and not eating, I gave up and dropped the food off at the North Tarrant Animal Shelter. Cats are very finicky and do not like change, at least mine do not.

    Our two cats have been on a metabolic diet as prescribed by our vet. They seem to like the Vegetable and Tuna especially to supplement their dried metabolic food. The metabolic has really kept their weight off.

    Replaced Fancy Feast Instantly

    By on

    My kitties used to LOVE Fancy Feast Medleys (until now) and it was the only brand they would consistently eat. I have a 17lb baby that needs to get back down to 13 lbs so this was prescribed by the vet. His sister also needs to have her weight reigned in before getting out of control. I'm relieved to say they are obsessed with this food and clean their bowls. It's healthier than the Fancy Feast "junk" food and I'm seeing a difference in their cravings in that the kitties aren't hungry all day. The price is pretty steep which is why the 4 stars and not 5 stars. But Chewy has the best price & customer service I've experienced. I'll be buying from them for a long time!
