  • Cat's diareha

    By on

    I've been using Limited Ingredient for 2 months for my mature cat that has had uncontrollled diareha now for a year. This along with homemade GMAF yogurt helps control her diareha. I made the mistake and used regular can of food the other day and she had a big pool of watery diareha on the bathroom floor. So using limited ingredient works. Another product good for this is Diarese.

  • Excellent!

    By on

    The first time I gave my cats Merrick's chicken, they both regurgitated (and one NEVER does this) and I knew it was from gobbling it up too fast! They love it! I feed them the turkey flavor, too. And no vomiting after that first experience, which is amazing since one of my cats would vomit regularly. So glad to have found this.

  • Picky cat loves it

    By on

    My 16 year old cat had become incredibly picky. After trying dozens of high quality foods and throwing away a lot of them he left, I decided to go back to Merrick's LID Chicken which he had shown some interest in in the past. That is all he is getting now and he eats it all twice daily. My six year old male cat loves it too.

  • Better quality food

    By on

    My cat sometimes turns his nose up, I think all cats get finicky from time to time. I got this for my cat who has diarrhea a lot. I also have tried some of the other flavors too, he seems to eat a little of each fIavor, no particular favorite. I contacted Merrick to make sure the phosphorous levels are good, and they are on the canned foods, on the dry too high in Phosphorus. A lot of brands the phoshorus levels are so High this can harm a cats kidneys. So far a better can food for cats. Fingers crossed Merrick does not change since they were bought out by Purina. Bummer

  • Cats love this food and it's low calorie!

    By on

    Several of the cans arrived badly dented, though the outside of the large box wasn't damaged. Chewy, please inspect items before sending them out with other box contents. I didn't notify you sooner or complain earlier because the cans did not appear to be split open at any seams, however I am not happy that 4 or 5 of the 24 cans were badly dented. Otherwise this is a formula my cats like and I appreciate that it has no grain in it and is low calorie and high quality for my older cats who are tending to put on weight.

  • Cat Doesn't Like This

    By on

    Been switching cat foods many times for my kitty. Unfortunately she will only eat this when she's really hungry. She was never really excited to eat. I will no longer be purchasing this food.

    My picky cat who has had undiagnosed diarhea since he was a kitten, started eating this and his stool cleared up within 2 weeks! He is a picky boy and gobbled this right up.

  • So Far, So Good

    By on

    My cats have recently been liking a food for a few weeks and then dismissing it. I hope this doesn't happen, but so far, they are eating it up.
