My IBD cat relies on this food for a life of reduced occurrences of flare ups resulting in vomiting and diarrhea. Randomly we will get cases of Biome that are not the norm. I open 3 cans a day of this food mixing it with supplements and breaking up the big pieces, so I am very familiar with the makeup and consistency. As has occurred previously, we just got a lot that was obviously different than the case we just finished from a previous order that was the norm. There was no visible barley and only one little piece of carrot. The gravy was notably thinner and the meat pieces were larger. I can only assume there is not a single production facility due to such variance in consistency. Given this is a formulated prescription food for GI challenged pets the QC should be of the utmost importance. I literally said to myself when feeding the patient cat the new lot of Biome last night, "watch, I bet she gets sick". Sure enough she has vomited several times and had diarrhea twice in the past 8 hours.
I'm giving this three stars because my cat loves this food so much in the past. However, I think there have been some inconsistencies in the formula lately. The previous case, the meat chunks were so huge that I had to do a lot of chopping before giving my cat the food. Like pieces of meat the size of a quarter. Now, that is not the case but it is veeeeery soupy. I also notice the smell seems different, almost a little two sweet from the carrots? No matter what Hill's stew I've given my cats, they purposefully leave out the carrots, so I'm not sure if it's worth putting them in the food, especially if it's overpowering. Now my buddy who has loved this food for at least a year will barely touch this. Do I recommend it? Before, I would have said definitely as I noticed it helped with his diarrhea, but now it won't help so much because he won't eat it, and the other cats who always tried to steal it also don't want anything to do with it.
I tried the "this is what you get" method and the slow addition method my vet prefers :) Couldn't get my cat to eat it for more than a nibble. Wet and dry versions. That's the only thing I can comment on, no idea if it works, vet really recommended it for persistent diarrhea after parasite test was negative, and prescription approval is easy with chewy. I did open it late after receiving, waited till cat stopped nursing, and had a second auto ship arrive which I forgot to cancel, but chewy let me return the second unopened order for a refund. Still would have been better to look for smaller amounts to buy first or try only dry or only wet. I overestimated my ability to get my cats to eat what they need to!
My PUTTY-CATS sit at their bowls and wait for me to feed them Biome EVERY MORNING/EVENING! They just LOVE their BIOME! So healthy. Healthy Digestion, Healthy Bowel Movements, Healthy Coats, Happy Healthy PUTTY-CATS! So well-behavied because I feed them BIOME. Thank You - Chewy for making ordering Science Hill's Biome so quick, easy & convient.
Our cat Charlie has battled a severe case of IBD for months. The usual GI from Royal canin was not best suited for him. His doctor recommended BIOME and the difference was increíble in 48 hours his diarrhea was gone and he started to put on weight. This diet saved his diet without a doubt.
My cat was loosing weight and yet was eating like he was starving. After many tests, the vet suggested this cat food. My cat began gaining weight and was finally satisfied. He loves the taste and I also give him the hard food version. This cat food saved his life. He’s once again my playful, happy fur baby.
My cat has an IBD and I think he would be dead by now if we had not given him this food as a supplement. Excellent product but sometimes the Canadian distributor is out of it, this is when Chewy is a blessing to have with the consistent stock.
My 7 yr old fur baby loves this food - both wet & dry. He is now fully transitioned over from Purina EN Naturals & for the first time in his life, his stools are normal (suffered from chronic diarrhea) & he’s enjoying life more than ever again. I continued with a sprinkle of Fortiflora on top but he may not need it for much longer. So happy!
This food was prescribed by my cats vet to manage his constipation. This has been a Godsend! He is going poopies everyday now! I am so happy! Has not had to have an enema in a month since he started this diet. He loves dry food but only has a tiny bit and I put water in it. Dry food is also vet prescribed high fiber formula. He has lost weight and is a lot more active which also helps with chronic constipation. Praying this diet continues to work for my beloved Sammy! It is pricey but worth every penny. I will economize in other areas.
My cat normally LOVES this food. I fed her the last can from a previous order, which she devoured. Then later in the same day I opened a new can from a new shipment and gave it to her, she smelled and licked it once then refused to eat. I tried a different can from the same lot, with the same result. Then I tried a new can from a different lot from the same new order with the same refusal to eat. I tried one more time with a fresh can from the second lot with the same result. I also noticed these two lots from the new order have a LOT more liquid in them than normal. Clearly the cat smells and tastes that something is OFF and that's why she is refusing to eat a food which she normally devours as soon as I put her bowl down.
