Rated 5 out of 5 by My cat loves your Turkey and Brown Rice food My 2 year old, Oliver, will only eat the Adult Natural Choice, Turkey and Brown Rice dry cat food and the Chicken and Brown Rice dry cat food. Since he was little... I alway placed two separate bowls down for him...... one with the chicken and the other with the turkey and brown rice. Each day he eats from each bowl...and truly enjoys his meal. He is very healthy, a perfect weight and shiny coat; a delight to watch while eating. Thank you for your great product. Please continue the Turkey and Brown Rice; and the Chicken and Brown Rice formulas. Our Petsmart did not have the Turkey and Brown Rice the last time I was in. I don't know what else Oliver would eat...I have tried many food before he "chose" the Chicken w/Brown rice, and the Turkey with Brown Rice. He is very picky!!! March 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy customers. The first time I bought the turkey & whole brown rice formula, I tested my cats acceptance of the "new food" by serving it without mixing it with the (back then) usual brand. I was very surprised to see them eating it like they've always had it. Later, I mixed the food only for a couple of days.After the last brand change their digestive cycle is been going smoothly and they enjoy great health.The 6.5 lbs. bag, goes very quickly. Surprisingly, my cats have not gotten over weight. I'm very happy with this food.Thank you for all your efforts. It pays off. December 4, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dale I put my 9 yr old cat on this cat food June 1, 2013 til Sep 1, 2013 and she became ill with a high blood glucose level of 480. This was her fructosamine level. I noticed she was urinating 5-6 times within a 12 hr period and throwing up also. She also drank all of her water. I am very unhappy with this product and would not recommend it to anybody. My cat was perfectly healthy before this incident. She has never been overweight. My vet put her on Hills Prescription Diet M/D for two weeks and then her blood glucose level will be tested again.
