Description

Nourish your four-legged friend with a diet designed to optimize his wellness, not just meet minimum nutrition standards, when you fill his bowl with Wysong Epigen Starch-Free Chicken Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog & Cat Food. Not satisfied with simply going grain-free, Wysong Epigen is the first dry kibble diet formulated with a patent-pending process that enables them to create a truly starch-free formula that closely mirrors the diet your pal was biologically designed to eat. It contains unprecedented levels of meat—60% protein and 15% fat—along with real fruits and vegetables, as well as beneficial probiotics, prebiotics, enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Key Benefits

  • Ultra-high protein, meat-based diet is formulated to optimize your furry friend’s wellness with 60% protein and real organic chicken as the first ingredient.
  • Patent-pending extrusion process creates a truly starch-free diet that closely mirrors the diet he was biologically designed to eat.
  • Also features real fruits and vegetables, along with beneficial probiotics, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals; rich omega fatty acids help support healthy skin and a lustrous coat.
  • Made in the USA at Wysong’s manufacturing facilities with domestically-sourced, USDA and FDA-approved ingredients.
  • Serve as a complete meal, topper or incremental protein booster; also an ideal therapeutic aid for convalescence, strength enhancement, immune stimulation, weight loss, or any condition requiring a high-protein diet.

NOTE: Wysong Epigen is made with unprecedented protein levels and a highly nutrient-dense recipe that may not be right for all pets. It is very important that Epigen be introduced gradually as outlined in the Feeding Guidelines in order to help prevent digestive upset, especially when transitioning from a lower-protein diet or one that has been fed continuously over a long period of time.

  • Not For My Guys

    By on

    This was a definite fail for my cats, but it's still a decent food. They were eating the Wysong Epigen 90 which they all love, but it's twice as expensive as this one. Since they mostly eat canned now, I thought it would be ok to have a less expensive dry food even though I don't like the ingredients quite as much (hello, potato protein?) as the Epigen 90. Well, they ALL hate it, all 6 of them. They refuse to eat it, even when mixed with other food they still manage to pick it out and leave it in the bowl. I recommend it and give it 3 stars because it's still a decent food, very high in protein and nutritionally superior to similarly priced "grocery store" brands.

  • Only the Very Best

    By on

    My kitty eats his Wysong grain free cat food daily. I will continue to feed him "Only the Very Best" for my very special fur baby "Boo"! I ordered the food one day and in a very short period of time, the food was delivered! I was extremely satisfied with the very timely customer service I received. I have every intention of remaining a very satisfied Chewy customer for a long time to come. Thanks so much Chewy!

  • Cats snubbed dogs loved

    By on

    I bought this for an improved ingredient cat food, but both cats just said no. Since it says it is dog or cat I let the dogs have shot and they emptied the bowls in a heartbeat. Great ingredients but not tasty for every pet

  • Thought it would be great

    By on

    I was very excited to offer this high protein no starch alternative to my cats. Neither one of them would touch it. I was shocked. They are not picky eaters, they prefer dry over wet, and they have eaten no grains, high protein dry and wet foods since they were kittens. Dont know what to make if it. It was very expensive, and I may have to either return it or donate it so it doesnt go to waste.

  • Cats Won't Eat It

    By on

    Cat food reviews recommended it, and this seemed to have good ingredients, but my cats didn't care. 0 of 5 cats wanted any part of it. The Wysong was going to be their new dry food and was hoping to get them off their old stuff. I tried mixing it with their old dry food and they ignored the new stuff and ate around it (1/8 cup old, 1/8 cup new). I tried mixing it with canned food and they didn't eat either the new dry or the canned food. They let it sit there for 12 hours without touching any of it. They like their old dry, their old canned, and their new canned, but just not this.

  • Apparently Inedible but viable as a weight-loss program

    By on

    I purchased this moderately priced food for my 4 year old, overweight, and not particularly picky kitty. I selected this food after it received a good review from a third party website (review of ingredients and protein, carbs, and fats content only, not lab tested). I was excited to purchase a food that was higher in protein than my sweet girl has been getting, and hoping it would help her feel more full and energetic to lose some weight. I used the recommended food switching protocol of adding a little more of the new food each day as you reduce the amount of the old food. On the first couple of days, it appeared as though my kitty ate some of the Wysong food, but left most of it behind.

I used the recommended food switching protocol of adding a little more of the new food each day as you reduce the amount of the old food. On the first couple of days, it appeared as though my kitty ate some of the Wysong food, but left most of it behind. I kept feeding about 1/4 Wysong and 3/4 old food for well over a week, without change. I increased to half of each food to see if I could convince her to eat the new food if she was a little more hungry; this did not work. I even tried to camouflage the Wysong food by adding the water from a can of tuna; I just ended up with a bowl full of soggy black kibble, and all of the other food picked out. I know that she accepts food changes, as I have successfully switched her to Science Diet on the recommendation of our veterinarian without an issue. The only good thing that came out of this bag of food, is that my overweight kitty has lost a noticeable amount of weight due to the fact that she refused to eat this kibble, even with her most favorite tuna water. This was a waste of time, money, and effort. … more

  • Starch Free

    By on

    I don't know how this will work out. I gave my mini wirehair dachshund 1/4 cup at one time. A few hours later he brought it up. Now I am mixing with other dry food 4 to 1 ratio. When I gave him the .25 cup he ate it no broblem. In speaking with Wysong they dont recomend using Epigen as the first Wysong food. I have the bag and will see. I give dry morning and wet evenings. My mini wirehair dachshund may be prone to Lafora based on pedigree. He cant convert starch to sugar so it will accumulate on brain cells and cause seizures. My thoughts are starch free food.

  • Healthful but Not Palatable

    By on

    I reluctantly write this review. It is not about the health benefits of this formula. It gets high marks for that from The Dog Food Advisor and I feel confidant it would be good for my dog, but I can't get him to eat it unless he's gone without food for a day when I've been away. Even my family's 14-year old boxer won't touch it and she has a voracious appetite. Insert sad face here.

  • Great for Diabetic Cat

    By on

    I'm fostering a 14-year-old diabetic cat who needs to be on a high protein, low carb diet. Technically, he should be eating only wet food, but he loves dry food so much that I don't have the heart to take it away. This dry food is the perfect compromise. It has much higher protein than any other dry food on the market (that I could find) and a very low carb content, as well. Even better, my foster cat loves it.
