have two cats one is a diabetic and one is not can they both have this food
Answer by ChewyOct 05, 2018
This food is specially formulated to address medical concerns and requires a prescription. It is not recommended to feed this to a pet who the food is not prescribed for.

My cat is currently using S/D food and now had to switch to M/D. Will this (M/D) cause crystals to form in his urinary tract?
Answer by ChewyFeb 20, 2019
The formulation of this food promotes an environment that is unfavorable for the development of struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.

Recommend This Product

As a 10 year old grey tabby I developed diabetes. My vet said I needed a low carb high protein diet. My mom changed my diet and bought Purina Pro Plan Vet. Diets DM Dietetic Mgmt Dry Cat Food. Along with taking my insulin I am feeling better. We recommend this dry cat food! Thank you Purina!

Looking to switch it up

My cats typically eat the Hills Prescription Diet MD, but Chewy was out and while I could have waited, I figured I'd give the Purina DM a try. Both of them ate this up! Before the need for prescription food, they would get a bit of a variety so this ended up being a good thing in the long run.

Good product

This was suggested as a substitute since our regular food was on back order. My cat seems to enjoy it actually, but her stool is much softer with it. It may just be due to the change in food all together. Otherwise, no complaints.

Great Service!

I am a new chewy customer, and I needed my cat’s diabetic food fairly quickly. I give 11 out of 10 stars at the delivery time, the ease of ordering, and being able to set it up for automatic shipments. Ordered it on Friday afternoon, the doctor submitted the approval Friday afternoon as well, and my shipment arrived on Sunday! And I didn’t have to pay extra for shipping. It was an amazing experience, and I’m glad to be a Chewy customer, as I now have syringes and vet salon to order from them as well. So I will be doing that in the future.

DM Dry Cat Food

Vet recommended we start feeding our cat this dry food to help with her diabetes. She will only eat dry food, no moist or can food for her. She immediately started eating this new food and to our delight she loves it. I do recommend this dry cat food because I think very highly of Purina Products.

Diabetic Kitty

Another product that I wasn't sure that either of my cats would like. One is diabetic and the other is not. The vet suggested feeding them separately but they have been eating together for over 3 years. It took some adjustment of not having the "nibbles" out all the time but they have adjusted and both like it even when it is just by itself in a bowl. Thank you Chewy!!

Headline? I don't know...

Two very finicky cats really like this. However, I haven't seen any weight loss, and one of the cats now has pretty stinky poop.

My cat loves this

When my cat was diagnosed with diabetes, my vet recommended this food. My cat loves this food, I use it for meals and treats and she has no problem with that. My other cat, who is on KD, stalks her to try and get to her food. I will admit she is not as fond of the wet version, but she has never been a big wet food eater.

cats love it

my cats love it. newly diabetic cat has not turned up his nose at all. the other cat loves it too but hasn't lost any weight that I can tell although we're hopeful. its very costly for me so I will probably save it only for the diabetic cat.
