How do I know I can trust these reviews about Purina Pet Foods?
Purina Cat Chow Indoor Formula Dry Cat Food is the brand used by and requested by our local humane shelter. We recently adopted a shelter cat, a sweet girl who is about 4 years old and finally found her forever home! I knew the shelter used Purina Cat Chow Indoor Formula Dry Cat Food from previous donations, but I never knew why. Upon adopting Macie, I asked the ladies at the shelter and was surprised to learn their veterinarian recommends this food. After investigating, I found the indoor blend has 25 essential vitamins and minerals, is effective at controlling hairballs and promotes healthy coat and skin. I was pleased to find this is a very affordable food, and my kitty loves it. She is active, healthy and has a beautiful, shiny coat! Purina has been in business over 80 years, and with products like Purina Cat Chow Indoor Formula Dry Cat Food I can see why! Great product, great price!
Lorena, Thanks for your excellent reviews on dry cat food. I had 5 rescue kittens that I weaned from their feral mama around 4 weeks of age. I started feeding them frisks pate which was recommended by a local rescue organization to help trap them. Once they were seen by a vet, they were all diagnosed with ring worm and put on a diet of hills ideal balance dry food supplemented with vita flora powder packets for 3 months. As they were originally used to the pate/ wet food, I began adding water to the dry food and supplement to get them to eat it. The two I have kept have been on that type of a diet since then. They get fairly moistened kibbles in the AM and PM and about a quarter cup of water with just about 10 kibbles in the afternoon or more when it is hot. I have recently purchased wellness complete health food and wondered if I could just continue this regime with it. Nowhere do I ever see anyone suggest wetting the kibbles but always recommend giving plenty of water or adding wet food throughout the week. I was just wondering why that has never been an option. Do you think there is any issue with doing this? Thanks for your thoughts on this.
We'll begin this review of Purina One Dry Cat Food Tender Selects Blend With Real Chicken with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.Have you fed your cat any of the Purina One cat food dry or canned formulas? Do you have feedback that could help other pet owners? Please share your review of Purina One cat food!I've researched the other Purina products mentioned in these reviews and will clearly avoid them as well. I suggest to other consumers of Purina products to evaluate the dry and wet cat food selections from Fromm. You'll be pleased to see the label and analysis of the products' ingredients (I am not now or ever have been an employee of the Fromm company). I am simply a retired pet owner who is one of many who spend significant dollars on the care and feeding of my beloved companion animal. As for the cat food supply, it will be going in the trash. I wouldn't want to pass this condition on to the local animal shelter. Thank you for your attention. Purina/Nestle, wake up.I switched to Purina Cat Chow Naturals Dry Cat Food recently under duress. My cat was previously eating Science Diet Adult Indoor Dry Cat food and we loved it; she loved the taste and I felt it was keeping her healthy. However, Science Diet changed to a "new and improved" formula (HA!) and my cat refused to eat it. She was getting really thin and I was desperate for something that she would like.
My parents give their cats Purina Cat Chow Naturals Dry Cat food and said their cats adore it, so I brought some of theirs home. As soon as I opened the baggie, my cat came running over meowing at the top of her lungs. I put down a few grains of food and she ate them right away and meowed for more. I knew then and there that I must start using this food. She's been eating it consistently and seems quite happy and healthy. Health-wise, I have noticed absolutely no difference between her health now with Purina versus her health when eating the previous food.
Quality of Ingredients
I was hesitant to give my cat grocery store food, since I had always given her premium pet-store food in the past. However, I compared the ingredients in Purina Cat Chow Naturals to the premium food that she used to love and they were actually very similar. Still, some small part of me is worried that the ingredients are somehow lower quality than the more expensive food.
Purina Cat Chow Naturals Dry Cat Food only comes in one flavor. Fortunately, it is a flavor that my cat loves!
