Over the last few months, the duck patties have contained giant scary chunks of bone. The food used to be pretty ground up, then pressed into patties, no big chunks of anything. Now, the meat is the same, but (I can't say it enough) BIG scary chunks of bone. I first noticed the problem, hearing my boys crunching something...they grimace and look like they're in pain trying to eat. The manufacturer should really address this situation.
This is a staple of our cats' menu. One of the top brands for ingredient profile and protein quality and ++made in USA. Cats absolutely devour it.
Ragdoll. Everything's normal. Never vomit before. Really bizarre. Don't recommend this product.
I know VE include bones in their products. It was totally fine with me until I found FOUR pieces of bones in ONE patty. One was larger than my fingernail and it was very sharp that I felt it cut my finger as I break the patty into pieces. Will not buy this flavor again. For those who feed freeze dried, please watch for large pieces of bones!
My kitten love to eat Rabbit and Chicken. But she doesn't like duck. SAD
My cat Aspen wasn’t a huge fan of chicken or turkey, but he loves this stuff. He reminds me exactly when meal times are everyday. I add some water to it but he wouldn’t care either way.
Nothing I do can convince any of my 6 cats to ingest ANY of this duck. They love duck in other manifestations. Not this one. I also found it very difficult to thoroughly moisten a patty. Little areas of dryness remain, even after earnest efforts to wet them. Seems a negative especially considering that hydration can be an issue for cats.
Neither of my cats would touch this, also it had some really big very hard pieces. They love the chicken and rabbit but this one is a no go!!!!
These are a godsend. My poor cat came down with horrible food allergies and we think IBS. She began throwing up once a night on her usual food. Lost 45% of her body weight. She has never been a picky eater. I could switch her to different brands, proteins, raw, wet, kibble she always ate. And then she stopped eating. Managed to find the Blue Essentials Duck and Potato wet food which she tolerated (ignored the kibble version though). Finally tried these and managed to eat 12 bowls of food in 24 hours (I'm tired, but also happy). She ate these even while fighting through a nasty URI when she wouldn't even look at anything else. She's begging me for food again right now. I hope she's back up to her normal weight soon...with as much as she's eating, it probably won't be long!
Chloe really likes this food although I cannot wet it first. she does drink water so I think it's ok.
