Healthy, but pricey; may be better to get cans & recycle

Definitely healthy & tasty food. Both my cats really like it. Grain-free, a plus for cats who get “tummy trouble” on cheap food or are just super-picky. No byproducts. BUT, it’s REALLY expensive, even when compared to other Wellness produts. The pouch has a lot of “juice,” so even at the same # of ounces, Wellness grain-free canned products have more “food,” and are a much better value.

Best bulk rate

These pouches have a tendency to be quite expensive if you go to places like Petco or small boutiques. Our cats personally like all of the flavors that these Wellness pouches come in but we try to order the grain free ones. We don’t give them the whole pouch at once and even when they stay in the pouch they don’t get as crusted over and stale as when they are in the can. Feeding your cats on the pouches alone however can become rather expensive and we normally supplement the pouches with dry food.

Princess: “Do I love this? YES!”

When Princess came to me, she was on mostly dry food. She didn’t seem to interested in her food, and used to dump it into her water before eating it. Her previous foster mum suggested I get her moist food. Then started the search. I purchased cans and pouches. And she didn’t seem to interested in most of them. I did find pouches she liked, but they were discontinued. So I found these, and Princess just love them!

The thing that Princess likes is the texture. The pouch consists of a square of grain-free food and sauce. The square is about 1cm by 1 cm. The recommendation is to give one pouch per 4 pounds per day, which should be 2 pouches for my 9 pound cat. Well, I tried that, but she put on weight. So I give her 1 pouch per day, plus as much grain free dry food as she likes. She’s lean and active, and loves her pouches. I pay an arm and a leg for it, but as long as my Princess is happy, I cannot complain. I’ve tried cans in the same brand, and she just looks at me like I am crazy. She definitely love this brand, and get different taste every day. And a happy cat makes a happy mum 🙂

TASTY!

My 2 cats eat Wellness grain free in cans in the turkey and chicken flavors. I thought I would try the pouches in this turkey & chicken grain free recipe to see if they would eat chunky food. They loved it from the first taste. They eat the chunks first and then lick the gravy. 80 calories a pouch. So now they eat both Wellness canned and pouches. I feel like they are eating very healthy and getting the needed water in their food. Amazon always has it packaged well and I get it fast.

Kiki likes it now

My cat likes the gravy but not so much the bits. She eats some of them but not many. Update – actually since I published this review months ago I’ve re-ordered several times because it has become a favorite food. So if your cat seems disinterested at first, there is still hope she/he will decide it’s pretty good after all.

My cat’s addicted!

My cat loves the tuna recipe so much, it is the only food she’ll gobble down in a single sitting. Interestingly, she doesn’t to be as keen on the other flavors.
She seems to especially enjoy the gravy, almost slurping it down!
I give her one pouch a day and free-feed her dry, grain-free kibble. She’s healthy and lean, and her coat is silky and luxurious.
Maybe it’s because I once owned a 96-pound Labrador that ate me out of house and home, but I cannot understand why people would think spending $1 and change per day to feed a pet is expensive…
For the price of a soda, you can feed your beloved pet a grain-free, quality cat food. In reality, the junky, mass-marketed supermarket brands are a real waste of money, because you are paying for filler ingredients and added junk.
$1.20 a day is a bargain for the convenience, the quality, what it does for my cat, and how much she enjoys it. I certainly fitter away more than that each day on myself, in the way of “indulgences”!
I know that the economy is bad and there are certainly a lot of people who have fallen on hard times, but for those who can afford to keep a pet in the first place, the cost of higher quality food shouldn’t be a deterrent.

A GREAT choice!

Our vet recommended these pouches for our 2 cats to help them loose weight. Dry food is full of carbs, and he suggested wet food since it’s mostly protein and fat – what they would be eating in the wild. Needless to say our picky felines love the food, their coats are shiny….and we’ll see if they loose the extra lbs! We’ve also tried other flavors of this food, but this is their fave!

cats were not too fond of this food

They would eat some of it, but not finish it which they do if they really like the food. It is very easy to open and feed as you just squeeze the pouch.

Caution!

The “Healthy Indulgence” pouches of cat food are prepared with FLUORIDATED water! A number of studies have now shown that fluoridated water increases the risk of osteosarcoma or bone cancer in humans and animals. Alone from my own circle of friends, two have lost their pets to bone cancer, most likely as a result of the animals’ having consumed fluoridated water! BUYER BEWARE!

My cat LOVES this!!!

If it were up to my cat this would get 10 stars. He is 15 years old and has decided he doesn’t want kibble anymore and this is the only soft food he likes (Wellness Healthy Indulgence Grain Free pouches). When I have tried other soft food he loses weight because he refuses to finish it or to eat it at all. I guess he knows what food is the healthiest!

I gave this only 4 stars because of the price.

My Cats Love This

All three of my cats love this food, this is the only food that they’ll finish off in one sitting!

My cats were mostly on Pate Style but I was frustrated because I was throwing a lot of it away because they wouldn’t finish it all, so I decided to try this out. I purchased a few different flavors but they prefer Tuna the best. They’ll eat the Salmon & Tuna but not with as much gusto as the regular Tuna flavor.

My female cat who has strange ways of eating her food did not appreciate the size of the chunks so before I opened up the pouch, I squished the food so it was not in large pieces. This also helps the the gravy absorb in the food so it’s not a soup. I now squeeze the pouches for all my cats, they like it better this way.

Also, if it stays at the $28.56 price on Amazon, it’s the exact same price in the stores.

Best price I’ve found

This is the only wet food that my kitties like (and boy do they like it!). Wellness is expensive in comparison to grocery store brands, but the quality is superior and I believe the price is worth it. Amazon has the best prices I’ve found.

My cat loves these

My cat loves these. We call them packets and she perks up and gets excited if we say packet. we call her packet cat. haha. anyway. This is way over priced on here though.. I get them for .95 cents each.. that adds up to $22 for 24, not $30 for 24 like they are on sale for here. I get mine at stateline pet supply in plaistow nh. I would look around before purchasing them for thebest price if i were you.

Even my VERY Fussy Eater likes this!

I have a VEEEEERRY fussy 2 year old Ragdoll cat who cannot eat dry food (it makes him throw up) and he hates most all canned foods. (And I know, because I have tried them all!) Thankfully, I found this food before he starved to death!!! He really likes it — he will even lick the bottom of his bowl clean (and he NEVER did that before!) The food is not pate’ style — it is actually soft, moist little “rectangle” shapes of food in a light sauce/gravy. I am very happy with the ingredient list, and the fact that it is a high-quality, nutritious, premium food for my fussy boy!

Worth It

Even with shipping charges this is still cheaper than purchasing from a pet store, plus it arrived quickly. My cat is 15 and was developing health issues, the vet said he needed more water content and this brand has the best gravy ever. I switched him from an all dry diet to two pouches a day of Wellness, with a bit of dry sprinkled on top and he loves it. Cleans the bowl!

Wellness Makes Good Cat Food

Most of my cats really like this Wellness Turkey and Duck flavor food. I wish the sauce was a little thicker like the other varieties. Wellness makes high quality pet foods with great ingredients that are good for our pets.

Wellness Pouches

My cas love this high quality, healthy food. Wellness pouches are a great food for all cats of all ages.
LanellAmerican Canyon, CA

Great for finicky cats

Excellent, high quality product. In particular a great way to get your finicky kitty to consume more liquids, as the gravy seems irresistible even for the most picky of eaters.
GertrudMc Nabb, IL

Good for my picky cat

My cats love this food and one of them doesn’t usually touch canned food. I know that canned food is much better for them and I feel better that this product does not include unhealthy grains. There is a lot of juice in this, but the picky cat really likes to lick up the juice. I haven’t seen any problems with vomiting since I switched them to this.

Favorite wet food

This is my cat’s favorite wet food. He really prefers most dry foods, but we feed him wet food for its moisture content. He is on a low carbohydrate diet. The Wellness pouches are his favorites.

Surprising Results

I was looking for a new cat food for my cat who is almost 2 years old – he enjoyed his old food, but after reading some articles on the differences in some popular brands I felt compelled to give him a more nutritious product that contained less fillers. I searched online to learn about a variety of product and decided that Wellness was the way to go.

My cat isn’t picky about his food per se, but he does have distinct likes and dislikes, he loves this stuff! I switched him to 1/2 cup Wellness Dry food and 1/2 pouch of Wellness Healthy Indulgence. He always eats the gravy first and then will come back for the meat chunks but he eats everything without fail.

The results are what have made me a convert and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. My cat’s coat is incredibly soft now and he remains active, alert, and very energetic (not overly!). The coat is really the one place I see a significant change – he had a great coat before, but after a few weeks on this Wellness combo his coat is even softer and vibrant.

Wellness brand is the best!!

My picky cat loves Wellness cat food. He will eat the pouches but he prefers the can style cat food. However, either one will work…my cat digs Wellness cat food.

Chunky cat food with gravy for your picky cats

My two Siberian cats turn their cute little noses up to run of the mill pate-like cat food, if you have cats that demand to eat at five star restaurants, this might be an option, more expensive but I got tired of throwing out barely eaten bowls of all its competitors.
RobDerby, KS

If the Princess likes it, so do I.

Princess gets a pouch of food every morning. I rotate so she doesn’t have to get the same every day. She usually have three different at any given time. This was the first time I purchased Turkey and Duck. These seem to be harder to get out of the pouch than the others I’ve tried.

I first shake the pouch to get everything to settle in the bottom, then I pull it open. So far, so good. But when I then turn it over, the food gets “stuck” in the pouch a bit. So I usually make sure I open the opening first and shake it a little bit around, turn it on its head, and start milking it out. That seems to work.

The Princess seems to like it, so I will continue buying.

The BEST food for your cats

When we adopted our cats several years ago, our vet told us it was really important to feed them wholesome food from the beginning (they were kittens at the time). She recommended Wellness brand, so we picked up several of the flavors of both wet and dry food for the cats to try.

Both of our cats immediately loved the “nuggets in gravy” style wet food over the more common pate style and we haven’t tried a flavor that they won’t eat (although they do strongly prefer the seafood flavors over chicken or turkey). I like the fact that the ingredients are whole foods – no fillers or cheap grains. Although not in this combination, they’re foods I eat myself – salmon, cranberries, flaxseed, zucchini, etc.

I consider this food a win-win because the cats love the taste and texture and I love that they are eating whole foods that contribute to their silky, shiny coats and general well-being.

Best cat food ever!

My two cats love this food! In combination with the Wellness Indoor Cat dry food, I think it’s the best diet you can feed an indoor cat. My brother, an animal breeder, recently told me that every pet food on the market is full of fillers, preservatives, and substandard ingredients. He changed his tune when he read the ingredients on a package of Wellness.

Healthy and Tasty

My kitties eat Wellness grainfree canned food and I wanted to try the pouches after others told me their cats loved them. So do mine! They eat the chunks first and then lick the gravy. So now I feed them both the canned and pouches. I love Wellness food for my cats.
