Transition Instructions

Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. It is recommended to follow at least a 7-day transition plan before exclusively feeding your pet a new food. Cats will often refuse mixed diets, so we recommend adding the new food to a separate bowl from the old food. Start by mixing 75% of your pet's current diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the current diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

I have a copy of the authorization from my veterinarian. Can I send it to you?

Why do I need a veterinarian's authorization?

Yes, but we'll need them to contact us and provide the full name of the pet's owner after the order is placed. This is so the veterinary clinic can locate your pet's records when we contact them. Email us at vetdiet@chewy.com or call us 24/7 at 1-800-672-4399.

    My Cat Loves This!

    By NiborB on Apr 7, 2021

    My cat recently had to go on a kidney diet. I tried several different canned food but she didn't like them, mainly because they were too wet (she likes it dryer). Then I read someone's comment about this food complaining that it was a dry pate. I bought it based on that comment and my cat loves it! So, thank you to whoever wrote that comments!

    Good stuff

    By Schnozdoc on Mar 19, 2021

    17 year old cat in early renal failure with excessive urination and GI upset. Two days on this food and his urine output fell by 50% and no more GI issues. We find it almost unbelievable, but we'll take it. He also finds it very palatable so far (one case). No issues getting him to eat it.

    so far so good

    By HighHopes on Feb 18, 2021

    My senior girl has become extremely picky over the past year. This is our fourth or fifth try at a food—both pate and chunks. She loves it for a week (if we’re lucky)and then refuses to eat it. We are going on a few weeks now and she still licks her plate clean. She has even an entire 5 oz can in one meal.

    Disappointed & Back to Fancy Feast

    By Megan on Jan 31, 2021

    After trying a variety of wet and dry kidney formula cat foods I was hopeful that my cat would take to this option by Purina. Unfortunately even a nominal amount (<1 T) of this pate mixed into his standard fare is enough to turn my boy off of food.

    My cat likes this

    By customer on Mar 12, 2021

    My elderly cat in chronic kidney failure likes the taste of this product and will eat it willingly. That takes one stressor away from caring for him.

    I can vouch for this food

    By Pamela on Jan 26, 2021

    There was no adjustment period, Yoda loved it immediately. After 6 months of being on this food, his kidney levels have been normal! I have a bowl of dry food out for him to pick at all day, and I give him fresh wet food several times a day.

    Disappointed

    By PurinaNF on Feb 2, 2021

    My cats both have kidney issues and neither will touch this. It's a dry pate, so I tried low sodium chicken broth, another time I added tuna juice. Still won't touch it.

    She likes it, increased appetite

    By LilysCatMom on Jan 4, 2021

    My little old lady really likes it. I haven't seen her clean her plate like this in years. Her appetite seems to have grown and she seems happy, though she does try to sneak bites of the other cat's regular food from time to time

    Cat will not touch this food

    By roxynin on Jan 9, 2021

    My cat will not eat, sniff, or touch this food. Will be donating. I wish there were variety packs so I didn't have to buy 24 and spend $50 just to find out that the food is inedible.
