I've been researching and have found that the Wysong brand foods are for supplemental feeding. Is this correct?
Answer by ChewyMar 12, 2018
This Food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for Maintenance.

What is the percentage, on a dry matter basis, of protein, phosphorous, and carbs?
Answer by ChewyJul 29, 2020
This variety contains approximately 47.79% Protein content on an as fed basis (53.1% on a dry matter basis), 1.17% Phosphorus content on an as fed basis (1.3% on a dry matter basis) and 10.89% Carbohydrate content on an as fed basis (12.1% on a dry matter basis).

What is the purpose of the Pepper listed in the ingredients?
Answer by ChewyFeb 12, 2021
Black pepper is used in Wysong Pet Diets because it is high in piperine. This compound increases vitamin and mineral absorption by as much as 250% or more.

Are the kibble pieces crunchy, or are they more of a chewy texture? My cat is diabetic but desperately misses "crunchy" food.
Answer by ChewyJun 19, 2020
This kibble is a hard texture but may be softened with water.

Our cats love this!

We have been feeding our kitties Optimal Vitality for years as a part of their daily diet. They love it and are thriving. In addition to this high quality dry food they eat canned food and raw freeze dried.

Mom of 5 kitties

We have been feeding our cats Wysong for years and years. It is incredibly dense in protein, never causes an issue, their coats are gorgeous and it has helped our oldest cat, Amelia who is turning 10 this year. She used to have very dry skin, her coat was brittle and shedding constantly. Now she has a gorgeous coat and her skin has cleared up immensely. I want to note she had been on several different kinds of cat food before we found one that worked for her that everyone could have. Wysong is fairly pricey, but I feel it is worth it especially this one if you have a cat with fish allergies! Our youngest is incredibly allergic to white fish, and so most foods she cannot have because of the menhaden fish meal. If you can't splurge for Wysong, I recommend American Journey by Chewy as it is also really great from our experiences. For those concerned about chicken meal being the first ingredient, there are disagreements on whether this is better or worse. Having chicken as the first ingredient increases the water volume and lessen the protein percentage. I recommend just doing what is best for your kitty, and remember that if they were to eat "free range" they get more than just the meat. Wysong is a great brand, and are very reputable amongst the small rodent community as well for their high protein low carb availability.

Wanted to like it but...

I liked this food, and I thought my cat was doing well on it, but the high protein is giving my cat disgusting sticky poop bombs that flood my room with the scent as soon as he’s out of the room. Tired of waking up at 3 AM to his horrible cat turds and having to clean it or I can’t sleep. Now his poops are getting worse so I’m switching ASAP.

All my cats love this food

I've tried different foods for my fur babies because most of them are fussy and it's hard to find a food that they all like that is good for them. I am still transitioning them to Wysong vitality, so I am only putting in a scoop with they're regular food (Rachel Ray's O Grain) and they go crazy picking out the Wysong bits before they eat the R R. I feed them wet in the mornings and let them free feed the rest of the day and 4 of them wait for the dry and won't eat their wet food. It's expensive, but they all love it and I know it's good for them, low carbs and low phosphorus and magnesium, so it will be they're new food. I just wish it came in bigger bags cuz my cat's go through 10 lbs. a week.

Optional Vitality vs. Vitality

Wysong diet has proven to prevent kidney failure common to the Persian cat breed. I will never again risk another brand. The optimal Vitality is pebble shaped where as the Vitality is star shaped and easier for my cat to manipulate. Otherwise I would have given a 5 star rating.

Chicken MEAL is first ingredient. ugh those MYSTERY ingredients.

It got by me that chicken MEAL is first ingredient. All those mystery parts. Skip it and go for organic chicken as a first ingredient. First ingredient has highest percentage so make it a good one.

Healthy and tasty food!

My cats are crazy about this kibble. I only feed dry food once a day but the cats get so excited when I take out the bag. The two other meals are wet food. I know feeding a wet food diet prevents future health problems. I think it's ok to limit the amount of kibble I feed my kitties. Overall this is a good food at a reasonable price.

Wonderful food.

My 6 cats are much healthier and more active and have lost a whole bunch of weight since switching to this food.

Quality Food

What can I say? The food has quality ingredients, the kibble size is perfect, my cat is doing well on it and he loves it! In a side by side comparison with another food I was feeding him previously, it even looks more nutritionally dense.

Cats won't eat it

None of my three cats will touch this product after the first bite. It was very expensive, so I wasted my money.
