    Dental food

    By on

    I wanted to wait a little while before I wrote this review to see if this food does help with teeth cleaning and I think it does! I mix it in with my cats other food a. Because it’s so expensive and b. Because I want him to have the benefits of his senior food,( he is 14 yrs old.) but I think it is helping. He’s teeth on one side of his mouth are pretty bad. My only regret is I didn’t start him on it when he was younger.

    Use as a Treat

    By on

    My vet recommended this food for one of my cats that had gum decease just starting. I decided to stick with what my cats were eating, but everyday give each a small handful of these kibbles as a treat. This food is very expensive and I didn't want to make this the main food for my 5 cats, but I think giving them a few of these very large kibbles will help keep the tarter off of their teeth and gums. It's also good to help prevent urinary crystals.

    I WOULD GIVE THIS FIVE STARS... MY CAT GIVES IT 0

    By on

    My little deaf cat was prescribed this food to deal with her tendency to eat non-food items. Initially she would eat it, but over a couple of months she decided to only eat her brother's food and have nothing to do with this formerly enjoyed meal.

    Great for cats on wet food diets

    By on

    This kibble is over-sized to force cats to chew them rather than swallow them. It works great for our five cats, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why it requires a prescription? This simply raises the price dramatically.

    Great dental care product for cats

    By on

    My previous vet (we moved) had recommended this food for my cats, stating that this food was all he fed his cats for their dental health. And it works! My two cats love this food and when I recently took them in for a physical with a new vet, their teeth looked great. And they love the taste. The only negative is that you do need a prescription from your vet to purchase this food anywhere. Chewy reps were great in trying to assist me in getting this prescription side of this order and were so helpful and courteous. This was my first experience with Chewy and I was very impressed with their customer care.

    Great product

    By on

    My kitty has two prescription foods and he gets this one as his treats. The other is for his urinary tract but by giving this crunchy food as a treat it keeps the tartar off. He is five years old and the veterinary doctor says his teeth look great.

    Kitties like it, slow progress on teeth

    By on

    We purchased this kibble for our three cats on the recommendation of our vet. All of our cats have tartar buildup on their teeth, and one had to have two molars removed. Ironically, we brush their teeth once a week while most pet parents do not. The cats love this kibble both as part of their meals and as a treat. After about six weeks of integrating this into their meals, we haven't seen much improvement. It could be that we need to remove the tartar already there and the kibble will help with maintenance. I can't say that it is working, but I also can't say that it isn't. It is a fairly expensive bag of food if it doesn't work as intended. We plan on doubling the tooth brushing until the We purchased this kibble for our three cats on the recommendation of our vet.
