About Purina One Dry Food
Hey! I never leave reviews...but some strange things happen when I feed this to my cat. I wanted to try this because I have a 10-year-old VERY long hair American cat (Maine coon + Siberian mix). The hairballs are a force to be reckoned with. I do brush her weekly, but there's just too much hair in the spring and summer! I had her on this food for several weeks back in December, and she liked it, ate it every time. But as time went on, she began to vomit more. Also, her coat began to thin, she was chewing on her tail, and she just seemed like she wasn't feeling well. Long story short, she developed a paw infection caused by allergies. The vet said it could be the food, but it could have also been a flea bite. I took her off the food just to be safe, and her coat returned to normal, digestion back to normal, and she was feeling better within a week. Ok, so here we are - I went on vacation for a night and decided to put this in her automatic feeder to tie her over (I know! What was I thinking?) A week in, and the same symptoms are appearing. She hasn't pooped in 2 days, she coughed up some stuff (not hair) a couple of days ago, and I can tell she doesn't feel well. Needless to say, this isn't the food for her. It must be something in her DNA or microbiome. For the record, she usually eats wet food that is grain-free and high protein...so my bad for trying to switch it up. The search for healthy dry food for the automatic feeder continues...all I gotta say is, I don't trust these highly specific formulas...this did not work, and it's kind of scary what happens to her. I can tell her coat and skin are irritated. Whatever it does to reduce hairballs, I don't think it's good for the animal long term.
I bought the smaller package of this product to see if my cat would even eat it. My (almost) 6 year old kitty, whom we got a few months ago, has a hairball problem. I started feeding her this product, and it really works. And, she really loves it! She finally starting (gently) coughing up the hair balls, which she had not be able to do before. It is a great product that works!
This is the cat food I’ve been buying for years, and I’ve recommended it to tons of people. But for the last month or so something has gone wrong. My cats will hardly touch it, and there’s been a lot of vomiting and diarrhea when they do. I’m trashing the rest of this bag, and I’ll open a new one from my recent autoship. If that one isn’t any better, then I guess I’ll be looking for a new cat food.
Do any of my friends use Purina One Hairball Formula? If so, have you noticed your cats throwing up more lately? I opened a new bag Sunday and Teddy has been throwing up almost daily...practically the same with the H boys at the office recently...sigh.
Does anyone else's cat experiences retching/gagging with this food? My first time buying it. Did test with 3 other types of dry food before isolating results. How ironically strange it is this one that makes the cat gag. I know a recent reviewer mentioned she/he fed her cats this food for years but they don't eat it anymore. Did we get a bad batch or what is going on. Seriously !
I’ve been getting this food for years and my cats are no longer eating it. I don’t know if something with the food changed or what. I still have an entire bag left that hasn’t been opened so a little disappointed. I ordered the same brand, but got Tinder Selects to mix with the Hairball formula in the container. They scarfed it up today! They haven’t really eaten in days on the other food so I’m sure they were hungry! Hopefully they like this food and will stick with it.
I normally mix together Sensitive Stomach and Hairball dry food for my 2 Ragdolls. I haven't been able to find the Hairball Formula for a while. Very happy it's back.
My cat loves this food. He has been eating it for years it was great to get it delivered, however because of the shipping it ended up costing more than I can get it elsewhere
I never see hairballs from my 2 cats and they like this food, so I keep getting it!! I ordered 3 huge bags because with the stuff going on in Ohio- I don't know where this food is made, but I don't want any contaminated food or water in mine so I stocked up and Chewy was the only place that had it in stock.
I have 3 cats and various fosters. Everyone eats this just fine. We still have hairballs on occasion, but I don't think anything will prevent them completely.
