My 7 year old cat has always had an issue with scarfing her food down and throwing it right back up. The food was always still completely whole, unchewed & undigested. After switching foods many times and even incorporating a slow feeder, about a year ago I switched to this brand and my cat has only thrown up twice after eating (and to be fair it was most likely due to medication given at the time), and both times the food was completely broken down in her stomach when she vomited, which makes me feel as though it's easier to break down and more digestible. I can hear that she chews this kibble and really takes her time eating it; She also screams for this food unlike any other kibble I've offered in the past, so it's fair to say this is by far her favorite. If you're having similar issues with scarfing & barfing, I recommend giving this brand a try!
I offer my cat a high end blend of dry food, also separately, raw food and some packets, and occasionally transition. When I offered her this as a topper on her dry food, she cleaned it up. I have added it the blend now and she really enjoys it. I plan to eliminate another dry food product and continue with this one.
I'd rather put my money in good food than in vet bills. This is put down as a supplement to their canned food. They absolutely love it! All 4. Cats need dry food, along with their canned food. Healthy cats are happy cats.
My cats go off their dry food occasionally and I was looking for an alternative. My cats liked it at first but now they walk away from it. I am not sure it was this particular flavor of this product that they did not like.
Absolutely love this for my two Siamese kitties. They are decently picky and they get so excited when they get their Orijen ! Will continue feeding.
I recently switched from purina live clear to this, and there's a noticeable difference in my son's fur. It's softer and thicker, and he likes his food. I bought it once, and now I have an autoship.
My kitties (full grown cats:) loved this as soon as I put some in their bowl, it was like a super special surprise for them!
My 2 Maine Coon kittens loved their ORIJEN Kitten dry diet (chicken, turkey & salmon) for the last year. I decided to transition them to adult kibble but it didn’t go great. They begrudgingly ate their ORIJEN Original Cat kibble (chicken, turkey & fish) but often left a bit in the bowl. I decided to try ORIJEN Guardian 8 Formula (chicken, salmon & rabbit) and they absolutely love it! Their appetite has returned full force and they have a lot of energy; they’re running around and playing even more than ever.
I keep a "rotation" of different foods for my 2 cats. To change things up for them for flavor and nutrients considering I believe every company puts different levels of different vitamins in their foods. Solid gold, open farm, NOW, Orijen, Tiki Cat, Weruva, Ziwi, meat mates, vital cat, are a few in our rotation. Specifically, Orijen Guardian 8 is one of the top favorites of my ladies. Bowls are always empty at the next feeding, and they come running when they hear the bag! I love knowing I'm feeding them well and that they are loving it too
I have never seen my cat inhale food like this before. She loves it and for the quality, I’ll keep buying it for her. Before she was on taste of the wild, HUGE improvement in BMs and coat in the weeks she’s been on this food.
