Mashed potatoes for your cat?

Be sure to note that the reason they can call this ‘grain free’ is because they use potato and pea starch instead. (Just read the ingredients.)

I ordered some without realizing this–when you open the bag you will be knocked off your feet by the smell of instant mashed potatoes.

If your goal is to get your cat off starches, this isn’t the one.

Decent but not the best

PROS:
-Cats liked it
-Good ingredients
-small pellets so easy to eat with kittens or cats who have lost their teeth

CONS:
– MUCH more expensive than the other brands per lb and also my cats needed to eat more of this than my Innova EVO which made it more expensive per meal
– Not as good of ingredients as EVO
– Very small pellets so the cats didnt even have to chew AT ALL meaning less jaw muscle workout.

All in All: I would not purchase this again. I rather spend the money buying EVO until P&G changes their formula.

Quality food without the unnecessary additives

Cats are carnivores. If you check out the ingredients list for many of the common brands you find at the grocery store, you’ll see the first couple of ingredients are *not* meat, but rather grains. As well, the meat typically is made up of by-products, which are not suitable for human consumption. Yes, I know, we’re not going to be consuming our feline companion’s food, but the reality is with cats and their funky digestive tract issues, their food should not contain grain or meat by-products, plain and simple.

There are a number of outstanding grain-free cat foods out there, but this one in particular our cats eat happily. One of our cats was significantly overweight, and with NOW recommended by our veterinarian , my fiancee gave it a try. At the time he began this food, we were actually living on opposite coasts and I hadn’t seen the cats in roughly 8 months given my travels. When I saw our cat after that absence, I was shocked to see how slimmed down he was and how healthy he had become. Using this food, in combination with that feeding bowl in which the cats have to stick their paws into to retrieve the food (looks like a flying saucer) has been the key to success!

Unfortunately, this product is not widely stocked at pet care places in our area, but I am delighted that Amazon carries it. I’ve been able to order it, trouble-free, and the food arrives fresh and ready to be consumed. I highly recommend this brand and encourage you to read the ingredient labels on anything you feed your pet-companions.

Great ingredients, I think.

I bought a small bag of this to try with my cats. One is 16 years old and the other 10. Both seemed to enjoy it as a snack, so I went back and bough the large 10lb bag, thinking I was doing them a favor. The ingredients are impressive, however, as I slowly moved them over from their traditional Purina One to this product, both of them developed a severe case of the runs. So, I portioned them back to a larger portion of the Purina One thinking they needed more time to adjust to this new food, however I can’t seem to get them back to normal. So, I have 95% of this bag and am not currently feeding them any of it. I also had to get some remedy for the diahrrea, which is taking time to kick in.

As I mentioned, they seemed to love the taste, but it has been a big problem for their digestive systems.

Great for older cat with sensitive skin

About a year ago, my 12-year-old cat developed an itchy rash on her forehead. The vet ruled out more serious health issues, and speculated that it was an allergic reaction or food sensitivity. And so began a year of cat food experiments…

We tried a range of grain-free foods with various protein sources. Some didn’t help the skin; some she didn’t like. The local pet food store suggested this. The big selling point was that it doesn’t have any “meals”– no “chicken meal” or “fish meal” or “turkey byproduct” or whatever. She has been eating this for the past 6 months or so, and her skin has cleared up remarkably. And the fact that she taps on my cheek until I wake up and feed her in the morning suggests that it is also quite delicious.

It is expensive, but it has helped her skin issues enough that it’s been worth it. (A trip to the vet costs quite a bit more!) If you have an older cat that seems to have developed a food sensitivity, this is definitely a good option to try.

Outstanding food, grain free

As any cat owner will tell you, cat digestive systems are a royal challenge. Now! Dry Cat Food is a unique product that doesn’t have any fillers, no grain at all, and the meat that is used contains no by-products. Essentially, it’s human-grade.

Cat’s are carnivores, plain and simple. And this food addresses that beautifully.

This particular formula, for senior and overweight cats, has made a huge difference in the quality of our cat’s health. My cats love the taste, never turn their nose up from this product, and my formerly over-weight cat is now looking terrific, and both he and his brother are very healthy – healthy coat, bright eyes, etc.

Unfortunately this product is not sold every where (yet)but I am grateful I can get it here on Amazon! I highly recommend this brand.

Great for cat with Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I’ve purchased the Now! Grain free (10 lbs) turkey with duck & salmon dry cat food 3 times now over the past 4 months. Wanted to see how our cat with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) would do on it. He loves it, and will chow it down to the point where he would get fat, if we let him. Have to portion it out to him thru the day. Other cat loves it, too, and she no longer vomits on a regular basis. Definitely a good quality product which is sold at our veterinarian’s office, but I buy it online with Amazon for better price. Sidenote: we’re gradually starting to reduce the amount of budesonide medicine given to our cat with IBS problem to eventually see how he does without the medicine & if he’s okay just being on Now! grain free food.

Great tasting, balanced protein & fat, LOW phosphorous, great for cat with kidney problem

My cat just love them, chomping down the kibbles. He has started to gain weight & muscle back, and I am very happy with the results. I also add 1/4 cup of NON salted chicken soup after the food. I’ll be doing another blood test in 6 months. Will do future update.

My two years young cat has high blood level BUN (60) and creatinnine (1.9), vomiting and not eating, and vet recommended changing food. He was on high protein diet, and I was surprise to learn that some type of cat are more sensitive to protein/phosphorous level. Chose “Now! Dry Cat Food for Adult Cats, Grain Free Turkey with Duck” because it has the lowest phosphorous dry adult cat food I can find, without going the prescription food route. The phosphorous level is 0.65% dry matter, considered to be on the low but acceptable. The protein(30%) quality is high, grain free and acceptable fat(18%) level. Most other non-prescription dry kibbles phosphorous range from 0.60% to 2%. Only prescription food can be lower than 0.5%. Phosphorous is important to health, but must be on lower range for pets with that are phosphorous sensitive.

Price of food is on par with other grain free, non rendered meats pet food. I witnessed fantastic results in my cat, who is now normal weight masculine happy active cat 🙂 … woo hoo!!! MEOW!!! =>o<=

Cat’s coat has never been softer!

After searching for a grain free cat food that made our cat happy, we discovered Now!. He loves it and it has made his coat super soft. He eats less compared to the grain stuff, and he seems satisfied for longer. We haven’t switched for 3 years. When our cat lost a few of his teeth, we tried a soft food, but he preferred this softened with water to canned food, even.

The side benefit was the smell from his litterbox dropped dramatically compared to the brands we tried previously.

My cat hated this food!

Food was fragrant for dry cat food but my cat HATED this food. He is not normally a picky eater but he refused to eat this food.
