guinea pig disapproved, dog approved??

to be fair, my guinea pigs are probably the pickiest animals alive. but, they will not eat these treats. they will give the treats a sniff, then they’ll run away. my dog, however… the weirdo is obsessed with these things. so yes, im a little frustrated that i have yet to find the perfect treat for my guinea pigs, but at least my money didn’t go to waste on these ones.

Not for my gang

I have fourteen cats and not one of them would even lick the gravy.

It's too good

I believe it depends on the cat, But my cats freaking love this stuff! Ive tried all other wet food and they dont take to it like they do this stuff! Even the verity packs with duck and turkey they love! It's insane how much they go through, because I spoil them, and how much they prefer it to their other wet food. This brand knows what they're doing!

My non picky cat didn't like it

It's hard to say it's not good when we're talking about cats, but she picked out all the "meat" and just licked up the liquid. And she will eat the dog's food if I leave it unattended!

best quality for reasonable price

My mom's cats love this food but my cat prefers the Merrick 's pate. Merrick 's is the best value for the highest quality food. I highly recommend this food just look at the ingredients.

Very pleased

My Luna loved these pouches. She is a very picky eater and these are one of the few pouches she enjoys. We will try other flavors as well.
