Almost half of the bag is crumbs

This has always been bad for having to throw away tiny crumbs that the cat can't/won't eat. The last 2 bags I have purchased, literally almost half the bag was tiny crumbs. Super expensive when you have to throw away so much of the bag. Not many brands to choose from for a diabetic cat but I found another one with bigger pieces that she loves. Will never order this again!!!

Loves this food

Our cat was overweight. We tried to switch her food to other lower calorie foods. She stopped eating altogether. Our vet told us she was diabetic. She would not take the pills. We tried this and she started eating again. We are not using any other medications. She seems happy and is doing much better.

Diabetic cat guzzled water on this food

I was given a sample of Purina DM by my vet for my recently diagnosed diabetic cat (resulted from only a week of prednisolone). I was skeptical due to the ingredients (poultry by-products, soy, corn gluten meal are top 3 ingredients) and it's not less than the recommended 10% carb on Feline Diabetes sites. Within 24 hrs I had to discontinue as my cat was living by the water dish, more lethargic and just not looking or acting like himself. Returned to his normal kibble in which I am phasing in a <1% carb kibble over 10-14 days. Returned him to the high protein pate he spurned when I started Purina DM. He's chirpier and drinking far less water. Do not see how this product could ever be beneficial to a diabetic cat.

Very Picky Eater

My 15 year old cat was recently diagnosed with diabetes. She is a picky eater and has NEVER touched canned food. She seems to like this Pro Plan dietetic dry food and eats enough so I can give her insulin. In fact, the other cats in the house want to eat this food, too. Morsels are small and easy for the cat to pick up and chew.

Great food for dm cat

Needed this for one of my cats who is now diabetic. Stopped the urinary SO cause high carbs and apparently diabetogenic. They all 4 like this food and it also prevents struvite stones which one of mine had 5 yrs ago. Only complaint is bag size so small and expensive. 10 lb bags for 4 cats? Going to be expensive twice the price of the other Rx food they were getting.

Going strong for 6 yrs.

He was diagnosed with diabetes 6 yrs ago and after we had him on the DM they said he had surpassed it and was cured but he should eat it anyway and mix it with his regular food. So I mix it with the Fancy Feast chicken and when I ran out of his DM, he didn't eat much at all until you sent us the new bag after I finally got the Vet's office to give you the script. He is doing great and eating normally now and he weighed in at 18.4 which is his usual weight also. He's named after Horatio Caine on CSI Miami. His middle name tough is spelled Kane, as we live in that town.

Cat did not like

My vet gave me DM pate and he did not like it, so I tried DM chick bits in gravy and he did not like that either, So I donated it to my vet.
