SECOND UPDATE: I contacted Amazon prime and they were very kind - told me to keep or discard the second product, and they would send me a replacement. They ensured me the replacement would finally be the correct product (new packaging, expiration date over a year away), and GUESS WHAT... for the THIRD time i received the OLD product!!! I am now stuck with THREE bags of old, nearly expired cat food. I'll be ordering elsewhere.

UPDATE: I received my replacement order, and IT'S THE SAME OLD PACKAGING WITH AN EXPIRATION DATE TWO MONTHS AWAY!!! Obviously they are trying to get rid of their old product with old packaging. Now i have to return a SECOND product. I will be ordering elsewhere moving forward.

The first time i ordered this, it was great. The expiration date was over a year away, and my cat loved the food. This time around, not so much. I received a product with different packaging (looks like its old packaging) and the expiration date is 2 months away. Unbelievable. They probably thought they could just get away with sending me the old crap. I returned immediately and have placed a replacement order, hopefully they'll send me the NEW product this time.

My 12 year old tabbies were getting a bit too round around the middle and the vet suggested I try changing up their food. I initially tried a very expensive, all-protein brand that had an ingredients list out of an Atkins-Diet handbook. I figured it would be great. Turns out, not so much. The cats loved it, but even with their portions well-controlled, the weight only increased. It wasn't until I changed to the Nutro Weight Loss formula last year that I began seeing results. All of my cats lost a few pounds each and their activity increased accordingly (and I'm happy because this stuff is about $20 less per bag than the all-protein stuff was).

My cats seem to love it. When I was changing them over from another brand, I was sneaky and yelled TREATIES! and tossed a handful onto the kitchen floor like I do with treats.

That worked for about three days before they caught on and got suspicious.

But by then I was already mixing this in with their old food. No tummy problems, and we think their fur is feeling softer than it used to. Hard to say if it's helping with their weight yet or not.

I have a couple of cats with very sensitive stomachs. I've been feeding various Nutro grain-free cat foods for about a year and it has made a world of difference. They had daily bloody diarrhea and nothing the vet did or the breeder did worked. Changing the foods worked well. Virtually no more problems, except a little diarrhea perhaps once a month.

The felines in my life have loved it consistently from day one and years later have never ceased to. It is healthy, doesn't create the kind of weird addition / compulsion to eat fast that pet foods I like to avoid do, and they seem to genuinely enjoy it and love the taste. They only eat when they are hungry and ask for more when it runs out, but they don't go crazy devouring it. I can leave it in the plate all day and they self administer. A couple of times when this wasn't available and I ordered some comparable other, they ate (these are calm, not finicky cats), but as a last resort and didn't seem to like it as much. When due to human error (forgot to order) I had to replace with the not so healthy versions from the neighborhood drugstore, they went all antsy eating and had tummy issues after. This is purrrfect, I'm told.

This food is amazing for my picky eaters. We have 3 cats and our oldest seems to have a lot of digestive issues including bloody stools which our vet could not figure out. When we switched to this food not only did she have less issues digestively but we stopped seeing blood in her stool. She has begun to lose weight and now has your energy level back and loves to play. Are other two cats seem to really like this food and actually stay at their bowls for a while to eat. Plus I love it there's less chemicals and real ingredients and the dog seems to agree as well.

I have an obese cat, so I have been searching for a lower calorie food that she might actually eat. Not all “weight control” food is the same. She had been eating a diet food that was ridiculously high in calories. No wonder she was still gaining weight. I happened upon this food and I was pleased that the calorie count was so low (I was looking for food under 300 kcal). She seemed to like it OK (though it took her a minute), but after awhile I noticed it was making her slightly constipated. Not completely blocked, but she was having difficulty going. Needless to say, she is now off this food (I found a 9lives food at 297 kcal and she’s pooping like a champ).

This food might work for your cat. Mine liked to eat it, but it just wasn’t worth the trouble on the back end (if you know what I mean). Just keep an eye on your cat, really anytime you change her food.

We have 3 cats and they all eat this food without issue. We used to get cheaper stuff from the grocery store when we had 2 cats, then we found a stray kitten and made her a new member of the family. Her tummy couldnt handle cheaper wheat and corn chocked products so we tried lots of different options before finding this one which was a perfect solution for all of the cats. It is also great getting it on amazon as it is typically cheaper than the local pet store and it of course saves me a trip out there. Very much recommend this if your kitties have a sensitivity to other foods or if you treat your cats like family and want a dry food that is good for them. I would also like to note that this food also gave our cats beautiful shiny coats.

As a first time buyer of the Nutro brand, I am impressed. My kitties love it, and i was surprised to find the kibble comes in little disk shapes instead of those tiny identical round shapes most other brands come in. I like this disk shape because I feel the kitties can grab the food easier without having to smush their faces into it. The disk shape allowes food edges to stick up and jut out.

I love that this food is GMO free. Will likely make this my go-to brand from now on.

My four stray cats love it. Judging by the label, it seems nutritious, and I'm glad to find a dry cat food that is grain-free. I gave it only 4 stars because at the bottom of a couple of bags I have found some tiny, white, hard, and sharp pieces of something that looks like it might be bone fragments--maybe from processing. However, that is just a guess. So, now, when I get down to the bottom of a bag, I always pour out the last of it into a dark-colored bowl and check to see if there are any white fragments. If I find some, I just make sure that they don't go into my cats' food. Just to let you know, my cats would give it a 5-star rating. They've been eating it for many months and never seem to tire of it.
