    Stopped my cats itching!

    By on

    My cat has been periodically itching for 2 years. She was starting to get bald spots at base of her tail and on her back (spine line). I fixed 100’s of things in the house - everything from using hypoallergenic detergents / having my vents cleaned / treated her for fleas / had allergy tests run on her / added humidifiers + air purifiers installed / had dust + mold tests done all around house / + more / but she still kept itching and puking regularly (6x a month). She is a 7 year old PixieBob Indoor cat who never goes outside, gets daily cognitive + mental healthy play times, has her own play room, lives in a single quiet home with minimal stressors.

She was on Science Diet Hairball Control Adult Light formula. I finally decided to switch her food and within 2 weeks after transitioning her to Nutro she stopped itching completely! No more excessive licking, no more bald spots, no more regurgitating food, and no more itching! She is eating more, playing like a kitten again, sleeping well, and comfortable again. I love Nutro for bringing my happy cat back to me :) … more

    I think it works.

    By on

    I started the cat on this Hairball control food from Nutro because I read that it is important for cats to cough up all the hair they in-jest when they clean themselves. I think it works because I've see her cough up the hair balls and she does it fairly quickly. She doesn't seem to have too much trouble with the effort, so I'm going to chalk up the ease of her expelling the hairballs, to the food. I also think this food is helping her maintain a good weight.

    They love it

    By on

    I've been trying different types of hairball control for my cats and I had bought the Blue Buffalo which they liked at first, then after a day or two would not go near it. I bought this one on the recommendation of Chewy.com and they absolutely love this one, they devour it.

    DOES THE TRICK!

    By on

    My cats were eating another high end brand of dry cat food and they would always throw up, hairballs or just food. I found this food and decided to give it a try. Within a week my cats were no longer throwing up, which saved me from the daily disgusting surprise underneath my bare feet. I noticed that my kitty, who is an over groomer, was defecating hair instead of vomiting hair. I really love that this food allows the hair to be excreted out of his tooshy and into the litter box, instead of all over my apartment. I also noticed the food is very nutritious and allows my cats to live their best life. Thanks, Chewy!

    Helped my cat with her hairballs

    By on

    My cat threw up hairballs for as long as I've had her & ALL THE TIME. I wasn't sure what to do for it. I took her to the vet & they said to put her on a hairball control food. I had already fed her Nutro, so I just switched to this. I wasn't too convinced it was going to work. She was on it for a little bit & I started to notice the difference. I ran out of this food & went to the store to buy a small bag until my chewy order came in. They didn't have the hairball control in a small bag, so I just bought the indoor adult one. Chewy order came, but I wanted to finish the old bad first. She ate the indoor adult for a few days & had multiple hairballs in that time.

    Fantastic Food

    By on

    All 5 of my indoor cats love all the flavors that Nutro has to offer (except Max Cat for some reason)! They've been on this hairball formula for over a month now and it has made a huge difference! My 17 year old always threw up no matter what, I have seen maybe one throw up in a month!! Since switching my cats to Nutro, they have all lost weight (a good thing, they were CHONKS), and they are all much more outgoing and playful. Another upside was the decrease in the amount of waste I was scooping from their litter boxes, and how their poos didn't smell as bad!!! I went from going through 3 bags of the cheap cat food and who knows how much litter a month to 1 bag of Nutro and much less litter a All 5 of my indoor cats love all the flavors that Nutro has to offer (except Max Cat for some reason)!

    Seems to do the job

    By on

    First, I gave this product 4 stars instead of five because I've only been using it for about 10 days. So far, it seems to have cut down a lot on the vomiting of one medium-long haired cat who grooms himself pretty vigorously. This guy is a picky eater, but the food easily passed his tough smell/taste touch. The ingredients are simple and don't contain any "junk food." In another week, if all continues to go as it has so far, I'll give it a fifth star.
