I've been feeding this food to my cats for about 2 years. My youngest cat is 1.5 years old and she's been healthy... until 2 weeks ago I noticed blood in her urine. Turns out she has a big stone in her bladder now. I'm incredibly disappointed in the Wellness brand. It's costing me hundreds of dollars to try to get this issue resolved and she's likely going to need surgery if the new prescription food can't break it down. I have 3 bags of this food sitting here now and it's all going to waste. I thought I was doing something good for my cats by feeding them this brand.. but instead they're getting urinary crystals that are clumping together to form stones.
I bought this as a supplement to my cat's wet food diet because it's very expensive to do all wet food when she's allergic to poultry. Luckily she loves this stuff, and our younger cat does too, so I can use it as a treat for her. Everyone is happy!
I mix two or three flavors and brands of dry food for our cats to give them a variety. Wellness makes a great, healthy dry food but all four of our cats eat the other two brands and leave some of this food in their bowls at every meal. I'm not certain if it's the salmon & herring that turns them off or if it's the teensy kibble size; I am certain that I won't buy more, though!
I have used this food exclusively for my two cats for nearly 2 years (kitten to adult). My one cat got a urinary blockage and his bladder was filled with sand like crystals that had to be taken out by a catheter. That cost was $900. Both cats are now on a prescription C/D diet for Urinary care. Be careful with this cat food.
For the past week, I have been transitioning my 2 cats (11 & 5 years old) from Purina One Indoor Advantage to this Wellness Grain-Free Indoor cat food. For my oldest cat, I’ve been adding 1/4 of Wellness’ tuna flavored wet food for senior kitties and thoroughly mixing it into the dry food. So far, it’s awesome and my cat’s love it. I’m at the end of the recommended schedule for transitioning and they just devoured their first full bowl of only Wellness food, no Purina. My cats are on a schedule where they are fed at the same time twice a day, but they would never eat all their food in between meal times. Now their bowls are emptied every meal time. The food smells like fresh fish, and has a slightly softer texture than Purina. I’m much happier with Wellness’ ingredients list compared to Purina’s, and I’m even happier that my cats love it so much.
My 2 cats are so picky, I am not sure they like this, but it was recommended and it's affordable.
He really likes this. He liked frisky's but he would eat it like it was going out of style and throw it back up. No matter how much you gave him. This I give him about a tablespoon when I feed him, 3 times a day and he has never thrown it up and he is pretty happy between feedings. I would recommend this for your cat's. It's all natural and no fillers.
This cat food may be good for your cats and your situation, this is just my experience and because if it I will not be using this product and would not recommend this product. I was excited to find an affordable food with good reviews and ingredients. Both my cats loved the taste and had no issues switching or keeping the food down. However after feeding my cats for about a month, 1 ended up in the Emergency Vet with Urinary blockage and the other developed Pica. It is 100% possible that neither were caused by this food but both issues often stem from diets. Furthermore, As that was the primary change in there lives I can only presume it has some effect.
My cat only ate this dry food only when she was starving. She hated this food and she was resigned to eating it she would appear mad afterwards,
Whenever we fill our cats bowl you would think he’s never eaten before. He loves it more then any other food we’ve had.
