Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cat food Color Why is the Weight Control cat food kibble green colored? The date on the bag is up to date did you change the ingredients? Is there EPA or DHA in this cat food?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hungry cat Bought it because of good reviews. Wrong. Went through 4 bags to make sure. Made no difference in my cat's weight or appearance, fur is nor shinier He is hungry all day and night, unless he had a good catch of the day outside. But that's in the summer. In the winter he is indoor, and he won't stop demanding food ( it's not my husky dog that never cares for food!) So i'll switch to regular food as soon as this one is gone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MMM Switched my fat cat to your brand as when i got him he was nearly 20 pounds! My vet indicated his target weight to be about 15 pounds given his build and breed, he's a Bengal. This food has changed his furry little life, he is much more active and seems to enjoy the food. He has dropped his weight and looking and feeling much better :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked Took in a 13 year old cat that was overfed and fat. I put her on this food and she has lost the weight and doing great. She eats it well so I guess she likes it. Now I'll put her on the senior food but feed a bit less as it is higher in calories.Absolutely no problem with the food and I really appreciate the quality control in all the Nutro products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All 6 love taste Switched to this food after issues with another brand. All of my cats are picky eaters and were getting a little chunky thanks to their love of treats. They have only wanted to eat this food for the last few years, and wont eat any thing else. They also love Nutro canned food, but wish it came in the 5 oz cans still

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for weight loss! my Gary is a healthy 2 year old neutered male. his optimum weight according to his vet is 11-12lbs he was at 13.8lbs and I didn't want that so I put him on this great food for a while because it has the lowest calorie count out of all the holistic food at Petsmart. within two months Gary was back to being 11.5lbs. he loved that food a lot but he kept losing weight with it so I switched him to the indoor cat food. basically, this food is great for losing weight but should be switched if your cat loses the weight quickly after already at the proper pounds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chicken is bad! I want fish! I very much miss my old fish flavored diet food. I hate chicken! My owner insists on feeding me diet food. She says I am too fat. Please bring back the fish flavored diet food.Sincerely,Figaro
