    Sever Manx Syndrome Solution

    By on

    My 2 year old cat has Severe Manx Syndrome making him bladder and bowel incontinent. When he was having massive issues with his bowels his internal specialist prescribed this for us and it worked wonders correcting his system. It made such a difference in him that we continue him on it daily and have not had one issue since beginning this. He loves the taste of it and I have to watch to keep my "normal" cats out of it. I highly recommend this food for anyone that is having gastric / bowel issues. Although manx syndrome cats do better on an all wet diet, a little scoop of this each night fills him up and makes him very satisfied.

    really helped our kitty’s bowels

    By on

    One of our cat’s appears to have an IBD (we still don’t know for sure). We spent hundreds on testing and medicines for her. After trying this food for a month (along with the canned version) it has done wonders for her GI tract. Her stools are mostly solid and not nearly as stinky as they were before. Most importantly she loves it and seems healthier and happier. We plan to keep her on this long term. Just wish it wasn’t so pricey. However, do keep in mind that the portions are smaller since it is so calorie dense and high in protein so I guess that helps. If your kitty is having a lot of GI issues, give this a shot!

    Just like a cat food commercial

    By on

    Was prescribed this food for my senior cat. He runs to his bowl and tucks in just like those cat food commercials. My other two, slightly younger, cats love it as well. After years of them rejecting many other brands of dry food, I have happy cats with happy digestive tracts!

    Max my cat

    By on

    I decided to buy the dry version to mix in with the can since half a can twice a day wasn't satisfying max but he would throw up the rice from canned food. The dry is to difficult for his delicate digestion system so now I just give him 3/4 canned food twice a day.

    Best quality

    By on

    My cat has been on this food for years due to health issues. It's the only food she eats. I was hesitant to order it online because I was concerned the quality might be less. Not true. I'm glad I switched to ordering here. The quality is the same as when you get it from the Vet. I'll continue shopping here.

    Great food and great service

    By on

    This was my first time buying a veterinary product, and my experience was great. I just gave them the name of my vet, and a couple of days my food was here. Thanks Chewy for doing it so easy! Now for the food itself, my cats have been eating it for a while, and their coat is so shiny, their gastro issues are gone and they love the flavor. It's a bit on the pricey side, but completely worth it.
