HUGE improvement!

My little boy has suffered from severe digestive issues causing diarrhea and vomiting. After trying different foods over time, nothing seem to work. Finally tried this limited ingredient novel protein wet food and dry and everything has cleared up. His fur coat is healthier looking and softer. He seems to be happier and more affectionate and now begs for his food all day. He stopped eating wet food for the past three years until now. I’m very happy to see him healthy and happy with this food.

Finally I found one he’ll eat

I’ve got such IBD issues with both of my kitties. Plus they are the most picky eaters! Finally I found one that is not only good for them but one that they like! And I have to give a shout out to CHEWY! Their customer service is the very best I’ve ever worked with! I’m grateful to all the help CHEWY has given me through this difficult process with my IBD kitties! THANK YOU CHEWY!!!!!!

Maybe mislabeled batch

I have been using this rabbit food and the dry version with our kitty who has very bad allergies for the past year and a half and tho the cats don’t love the wet they nibble at it and it worked to take away the asthma-like attacks my cat would suffer from. In the past couple months the cat has really rejected the wet food but suddenly i opened a new 24 pack of small cans and the pate is a different lighter color, softer wetter texture and smells different(like poultry). I put it out for the cats just the same and they ate it all up voraciously the way they used to with poultry food. I think it’s possible I got a mislabeled batch and am very freaked out?! Anyone else have this? I don’t know what to do and will find out soon if my cats starts having breathing troubles!:(

My cats like it

Im a lable reader, always trying to find the healthiest food for my cats, also one of my cats has a very sensitive stomach (I have 7 cats) but feed over 20. Rabbit is one of the best novel meats you can feed a cat/dog with allergies or IBS. My cat does not get sick after eating this food.

didnt meet expectations

i bought this based off of the good reviews, but my cats weren’t crazy about it. they would pick at it and then turn up their noses. eventually they liked it a little more once i mixed it with water, but i started noticing bone fragments in the food, which scared me enough that i no longer am feeding it to them. im disappointed, because on paper this is a great product! but needs quality control, as i dont wanna be feeding my kitties bone fragments

Trust your Instinct, this food is great!

My very picky cat loves this food. He's been on a prescription diet that he refuses to eat most of the time. I switched him to this which also met his health needs and he can't get enough of it. Quite a positive change. He's always been very thin and finally feels like he's eating what he needs. I couldn't be happier!! I hope they keep the formula the same and not ruin it like other brands have done. Great job!!

Instinct canned

I believe it has quality ingredients ... cats liked it at first, then walked away. I try to put a bit of hot water and mix up to enhance the smell. I fed cans of other foods and plan to go back to it. Cats are just finicky.

Nice can food

This is a decent brand of cat food, and my cats like it alright. It isn't their favorite, but they will eat it in rotation with our can foods. I rotate their protein sources regularly so they hopefully won't develop allergies to any one protein in the future. It is nice to have rabbit as an option. I wish it was just a little more affordable.

Cat with stomatitis

One of my cats has stomatitis which means his immune system attacks plaque on his teeth. He has to eat good quality foods to keep the red irritations from forming on his gum lines. Besides good supplements to help, it was recommended to feed him Instinct Rabbit. He loves the Limited Diet rabbit food. There are less ingredients in the LTD than the Instinct Rabbit regular can food but both agree with him and his immune system.

Cat with sensitivities

My 3yr old Sphynx has suspected food intolerances/allergies and/or IBD. He’s spent the last 2 months with diarrhea, coughing, gagging and throwing up. After ruling many other things out, we decided to look at his diet. Vet started him on a hydrolyzed prescription diet and he continued to throw up after eating, he eventually stopped eating and was extremely constipated. After multiple visits to the vet, they recommended a “novel” protein and this was the first limited ingredient food we tried for him. He is doing sooo much better. He’s been eating this for about two weeks now, no GI issues, no throwing up or gagging and he LOVES it. So thankful as this is also a much more affordable alternative to the prescription foods that he does not even like!
