the previous formula was perfect for my cat. vital essentials ... why did you change it? now the ingredients are less pure and full of synthetic vitamins, yuck.
and, not only that ... chewy didn't update the the ingredient listing, so i ended up with a product i didn't order.
super duper bummed. i'll have to find another source for rabbit. :(
Best food for sickly cats

My cat has been on meds and various foods for years - from home cooked kangaroo to pork etc. under the supervision of a vet. His vomiting has been out of control lately and he's on so much medication. I decided to try another food and he has not thrown up once since starting this!! It is such a gift after many years of struggle. Thank you!!
My cat likes it

As I take this biscuit my cat just jumps and takes the whole food away. She loves this food in dry. I usually make it into small pieces and mix it with dry food. For sure I will buy this again!
Bowls licked clean!

I switched to this after all 3 of my cats started showing signs of allergies and my vet suggested changing from a chicken based food. I was a little nervous to switch since all 3 have been on the same food forever, I have 1 with a chronic illness, and 1 that is the pickiest eater but I followed the directions and switched them VERY slowly (over 15 days) to the new food. All 3 absolutely LOVE this food and lick the bowls clean! I am also already noticing a difference in my ones fur (softer and less dander). Definitely worth the cost (and smell) for me!
Cat would not touch it

My cat loves the Sassy Cat freeze-dried rabbit treats, so I thought he would like this cat food. He hated it. And I can't blame him. Once soaked in water as instructed, it turned into a putrid unappetizing pile of grey mush.
Cats love it

I purchased freeze-dried cat food from a few different brands on chewy. I think this is their favorite. I love that it has very limited ingredients. The food is very easy to break into smaller pieces and rehydrates quickly.
What can I say
on Jan 3, 2021
I bought it because my cat had pancreatitis and this came up as a good item to give cats with that condition but they both hated it. Maybe other cats like it but mine didn't

My kitten will eat this, but not in love

Great brand, great product. And I’ll still buy it for my kitten to develop his taste. Except for that it’s expensive, not thing negative about it.

I thought we would try this product when my one cat was diagnosed with stomatitis. We are trying to eliminate all chicken and seafood from her diet to see if it helps with the flare ups. We tried a couple of other things but this was the biggest hit. They all cannot get enough of this food. The patties are convenient and easy to portion out. They rehydrate very well using water from out electric tea kettle then letting it cool a little before serving. Also, it works very well for mixing in my kitties supplements for her stomatitis. I cannot recommend this and the other flavors enough (but my cats love this flavor the most).
