Where are ingredients sourced from and where is it made?
Answer by ChewyOct 16, 2018
Wellness manufacturer's their formulas in the USA and sources their ingredients primarily from the United States. Proteins like venison, lamb rabbit and salmon meal are sourced from New Zealand, Australia, Italy and Chile. A small portion of the mixed tocopherols and green tea extract are sourced from China. These ingredients are part of the natural preservative in the food and are less than 1% of total ingredients.

"Does this food support a healthy PH? If so what is the range?"
Answer by ChewyJun 27, 2018
WellPet feline diets are formulated to yield a urine pH of 6.2 to 6.6 for dry and 6.1 to 6.6 for canned and pouches. Study results confirm that Wellness diets are safe for the majority of the feline population. Other factors that may affect a cat's pH are: 1) meal fed vs. free-feeding, 2) amount of fresh water intake during feeding, and 3) genetics.

What are PHOS/MAG/ASH levels of this dry? I need to curb bladder stones and blockage and want something other than Rx food filled with fillers and junk food.
Answer by ChewyNov 27, 2020
The ash is 8.31%, magnesium is 0.14%, and the phosphorus is 1.3% (all on an as fed basis).

Been The Food of Choice for 5 Years.

I did a lot of research and comparing brands and ingredients vs indoor/outdoor fur kiddos and activity, etc. I've owned cats for 20 years, so when I brought my last two home a few years ago, I started them on the kitten version of this and then this is the one I moved to when they were adults. Since this is the only dry food they've ever known, I haven't had an issue giving it to them. However, my vet always comments on how shiny and lovely their coats are and they just gobble this food up. No GI issues or any allergies. I really guess it just depends on how your little fur babies like the taste. Seems it's not a winner with all. It is a quality dry food, though.

You Never Know!

These reviews show just how finicky our feline fur balls are. I see polar opposite opinions!! I'll plunk out the cash for this better quality dry food because our three (two girls and a boy) absolutely love it and have eaten it for years.

They'd rather starve

My mom gave me a bag of this cat food since her cat wouldn't touch it. I have 3 cats, all of whom would rather starve than eat this food. On the bright side, they are willing to eat a lot more canned food than normal since their dry food is untouchable! It's a bummer because it seems to have quality ingredients and be really healthy for them, but none of that matters if they won't even eat it. My cats can be somewhat picky, but I've never seen them dislike a food this much before.

They Loved it

I have 2 cats with urinary problems and they must have food low in ash...this is low in ash and carbs, made in the USA and my babies destroy this along with the core tiny taster pouches. I feel good that they're getting good nutrition and it's helping them and is healthy. Ash/phosphorus content should be under 2% btw

Not a favorite of my two boys

I feel sure this cat food is a good product, which is why I couldn't mark it with no stars. However, my two 11 year old's absolutely do not like the taste of this kibble. I am sure food tastes are highly subjective in cats, just as in people. I trust that Chewy wouldn't carry a sub par product, so it's possible your cats will like this.

Cats like it and it is low carb

Bought this food because it is one of the lowest carb dry food and I have a borderline diabetic cat. I decided to put all my cats on it, they all seem to like it and if my diabetic kitty get a hold of it, more than he is supposed to, I know it won’t hurt him too much.

They just don’t like it

My 4 cats just weren’t having it. I removed all other food and they still wouldn’t eat this dry food. This food has good ingredients but just didn’t work with my group.
