A hit with the whole group

My herd of 6 tried this for the 1st time this week and it has been clean bowls every day. We have one that is sensitive stomach and there have been no throwup incidents with it. It costs a bit more than our old food but it looks like it is worth it for healthy and happy furballs.

Formula change??

After our cat was diagnosed with food allergies, we tried many foods that didn't cause her problems. This food was THE one, until it wasn't. Vomiting and excessive itching started about the same time as the new packaging occured. Did they change the formula, or is there something in the plastic-like bag that she's sensitive to? I don't know, but I will not be feeding her this brand again. Too bad, she was doing so well :(

Was great until the formula change

My car with several allergies had previously had reactions multiple foods until changing ti this one years ago. She was stable and had no problems until recently when she started vomiting every time she ate. After lots of trial and error, stress, and vet visits for testing, it was determined it had to be the food. Lo and behold, the recent bag design change was also part of a formula change, so there is something in the new recipe that she’s reacting to. It’s such a bummer because this was a winner for so long, and now we are having trouble finding a new dry food that 1) she will actually eat 2) that doesn’t include any of her known allergies. At least Chewy was great with the refund, but I will beg Natural Balance to change it back because it’s so hard to find something for sensitive, multi-allergy kitties.

My cat LOVES Salmon formula

This NEW Salmon & "Green Pea" formula replaced their Salmon & "ChickPea" formula. My cat had no issues transitioning over. HE adores SALMON. Chewy made it easy to do so when the old formula was discontinued by manufacturer. Thank you Chewy, you guys always make my life & Fur-babies lives super easy.

Should have read the reviews better, was trying to find a cat food to improve my cats diet and stinky poop. This made it 10x worse and added vomiting. Would not recommend , wish I could give zero stars

More economical cat sensitive brand

We were using the more expensive vet prescribed only "limited ingredient" for Skin/Food Sensitivities dry food because our cat, Molly, was losing her hair and over-licking. The prices shot up so we started looking for an alternative. This product works GREAT. Hats off to Chewy for offering this product!

Too many peas

Ive fed this to my cats for a couple months. I will say, my cats are very playful and seem more energetic on this food which I love to see. However they are ALWAYS hungry. Since the first AND fourth ingredient is peas Im inclined to believe that they are actually hungry and not just begging for food like cats do. Im happy this food agrees with them however I will be swapping it out for a food that has meat/fish as the FIRST ingredient. I want to make sure they are getting enough protein. So the food is good I guess but we are moving on.

Cats really like it.

All 4.of my kittys will eat this. It has good ingredients(alot of peas but that is common anymore) and my kitty that can not have chicken, corn, eggs and dairy can eat it. Some foods make 2.of my kittys immediately regurgitate for some reason and so far this one does not. The only complaint I have is that the shape of the food changes from bag to bag. Sometimes bigger and flat disc shape(which my cats prefer) sometime small and more a rounder thicker shape.

Really, truly LID

I appreciate Natural Balance's LID products. My cat has so many allergies, I don't even know what she's allergic to, but I'm pretty sure chicken is one of them. So many of the supposed LID foods have something I don't want to take a chance on. My cats prefer the salmon and chickpea formula, which I have on autoship, but when it was out of stock, I was grateful that this alternative was there. I also appreciate Chewy's lightning-fast response time! It's almost like having the factory next door!

Fine, but not well loved.

I have been trying to find some better options for our allergy cat (we still don't know what allergy). I figured, let's try this one, it's grain free. Out of my 6 cats, no one really loves it. They will eat it after their favorite junkier food has run out (or almost low... you know cats), but it takes a long time for them to get through a bowl. So it's not unedible, but it's definitely not a favorite. It seems fresh and good quality, though.
