    My vet recommended - cat wouldn't eat!

    By on

    Maxie, 13, very thin, ill female, diarrhea problem, wants to eat, IBD however, did not seem to like the Critical Nutrition even though my vet highly recommended it. I am sure other cats do very well - read all the reviews - and one of my sister's cats loved it! Food is very soft, good for cats who have difficulty eating - can be licked up. Doesn't seem to have a good or bad or meaty or fishy smell - kind of neutral. Of course, my healthy cats just wanted to scarf it down!!!!! They don't need it! It is rather expensive - and Chewy only sells by the case - so if you can try it first before buying a whole case, good idea. Even though my cat was not taken with it, may be very beneficial Maxie, 13, very thin, ill female, diarrhea problem, wants to eat, IBD however, did not seem to like the Critical Nutrition even though my vet highly recommended it.

    Life Changing Difference

    Per our Vets recommendation, we purchased this for an emancipated Boxer we just rescued from a kill shelter. Within 2 weeks, she has gotten stronger and gaining weight. This has made such a huge improvement to her health.

    Great texture, my cat loved it

    By on

    My picky-eater cat was prescribed this after surgery to help her gain weight and repair muscle. She loved it. I mixed it with a bit of warm water to help keep her hydrated.

    My cat was losing weight due to Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The vet started London on critical nutrition and it has done the trick. He has already put on weight in a couple of weeks and he seems to like the food.

    Food for failing health

    By on

    My chihuahua, age 12yr, was going down hill with multiple illnesses & would not eat anything until we put this prescription critical nutrition dog food in front of him. Now Blue is eating, has regained most of the weight he lost, & he is going to be with us a bit longer.

    Excellent product!

    By on

    When my hospitalized dog wouldn't eat anything, she ate this - got her through a very scary time! It is VERY annoying that Purina requires a prescription to purchase. It's just dog food.

    Great support for picky older eaters

    By on

    I’ve got older dogs who sometimes don’t want to eat. This prescription food does the trick. It gets them some nutrition, and seems to spark their appetite for their regular food. Originally prescribed for one of my guys who was having some health issues, I now keep some cans around just in case. It works.
