My vet recommended this after their annual physical. One was chubby and the other a little skinny. This is perfect for the skinny cat that needed to put on a little weight and loves to eat. He can eat more and feel full. My other cat loves food but will often over eat. I find with this food she can eat My vet recommended this after their annual physical.

My other cat loves food but will often over eat. I find with this food she can eat what she want's and she'll stop when full. I can keep both cats on the same food. I just follow the recommendations for weight maintenance after their weight leveled out. This works great and I don't have to think about it. I tried auto ordering this through my vet and they kept canceling it out of laziness and lack of staff so I gave up on them and started ordering the 16lbs bag from here. Price is on par. Plus shipping is free through here. … more
Gave this to my cat to help him lose weight. I give it 2 stars because he liked the taste. However, the pieces of food must Expand in the stomach (part of the overweight management maybe) but no matter how small of a portion I would give him he would throw up immediately after eating.
I'm so sad to write this review because I had such high hopes for the product. My cat enjoyed the taste and was eating it just fine. I purchased it since she was eating another prescription cat food and was having difficulty losing weight. My vet suggested that we try this food in hopes that she would lose weight. We fed her what was recommended for her to lose, and she ended up gaining. She now weighs more than she ever has. Now we have to continue our search for a new diet food, hopefully one without all these horrible gluten and soy ingredients.
The vet recommended the Purina OM because the cat is overweight. I gradually transitioned her from her grain free cat food to the Purina OM. She seems to like the taste based on how eagerly she eats but she frequently throws it up a few hours later. I tried feeding her small portions more frequently but she still upchucks. I switched back to the grain free food and no more barfing.
