343196343196B000WFEN74A16BUP7LYKQR7RS. E. Rigley3451257724800Healthy Canned DietUntil I am able to make my own raw diet for my cat, I purchase this food for her, and I've been able to tell a noticeable difference in her health and energy levels. I used to feed her Purina One dry food, but after a ton of research and questions, I'm slowly figuring out what she really needs to thrive. Wellness uses human-grade ingredients, and while I don't care for the Guar Gum or Carageenan additives, it's still a product worth buying.

With regards to the one star rating, shame on you for buying from a breeder, and for passing up "health food" for your pets. Just because they can survive on cheap food that doesn't use natural ingredients, doesn't mean it's good for them. Children can survive on a diet of sugar cereal and cheeseburgers, but no responsible parent would feed that to them, either. If you love your kids, you make them eat their vegetables.

In conclusion, it may take a little while for your kitty to accept natural food that isn't filled with nasty additives and flavorings to make it stinky, but when they do you will see an improvement! I also recommend Natural Balance canned food, another good quality diet. Raw food is best, but high quality canned food is still head and shoulders above dry kibble diets.
343197343197B000WFEN74A2YG3SRC8AMQ6GEmily3451247356800The best in the U.S. market today.About the only thing wrong I can find with Wellness canned is the number of people who complain that their cats won't eat it -- even cats that were eating Wellness for awhile, suddenly they seem to lose interest. People scramble to find why their cat suddenly won't eat it ("they've been eating Wellness for years!"), and end up blaming it on the company.

It's not necessarily the company's fault. It's at least partially your fault for creating a routine in which you allowed your cat to become so finicky.

As a human, there are a few brands I prefer simply because I grew up with them, and I know the taste of those brands blind-folded. I'm finicky about them. Cats are *super*-sensitive and can taste even the smallest changes - including the plant their can of food was processed from!!!

Don't let your cat become so finicky by feeding only one brand or flavor or variety consistently for years. Mix it up. Wellness may be the best, but there are several high-quality brands of canned cat food on the market in the U.S. today -- look into them.

I highly recommend rotating a few brands of high-quality canned foods if you have any problems with feeding Wellness to your cat, and even if you're not. Wellness is still a great brand of food (the best in my opinion), still containing the same high-quality ingredients as it ever did. My cat loves it and I feed several flavors (Chicken, Beef & Chicken, Turkey) as part of his rotation.
343198343198B000WFEN74A2WV1BVPR5YKFZD. Allen "Mr. Mojorisin"71031271980800Different Poduct Than What's in the Store.We decided to buy this from Petco through Amazon instead of going to their store to get it. It was a little cheaper and it saved us a trip. To our surprise, the product isn't the same color or consistency as what we have purchased from their stores for the last few years. To make matters worse, one of our cats has suddenly developed a swollen lower lip. This can be due to an allergic reaction, and it makes us wonder if it's a response to the obviously different product we received and fed to them.

Update 5-27-10: As noted above, the first two cases were different than what's in the stores. Our next order was normal color and consistency. Looks like a Quality Control issue. I'll update further about our experience.
343199343199B000WFEN74A2EG5ZEK4S4E7FK. M. Willet6911289433600Our cats no longer will touch any of it.We are involved with cat rescue, and prefer to give canned, no-grain food. Between ours and the ones we're fostering until we find them homes, we have 43 cats. MOST of the cats won't touch Wellness anymore. They used to eat it and it was all they were given, so I can't imagine why, for the past several months, they are refusing it. Today, we threw two more cans (Chx & Beef and Chx flavors) down the disposal. We can't afford to throw the stuff away, so we're now looking for other no-grain canned food they'll eat. It's ridiculous. It's almost as if the recipe changed, and it's across the board, with all flavors - we also give them the poultry and salmon (purple can) and the turkey (green can) formulas, in addition to the two I already mentioned. Same thing. We wonder what's in there they no longer will eat.
343200343200B000WFEN74A2QN3DLPE7K80BJohn T. Rosa4611296777600wellness canned cat foodWe bought a case of this cat food and our cats liked it and seemed to do well. After it was gone, we bought a 2nd case and all 3 of our cats became violently ill and vomited after eating it. Thought it might have been a bad can so we tossed what was left. Gave them another can the next day and same thing, all three cats became sick, vomited, lethargic and stopped eating for several days. We went back to a food from our vets and now after several days they are OK again and eating normally. I don't know if this was just a bad case of food or if Wellness has a quality control problem, but I would hesitate to purchase another product from Wellness.

343172343172B000WFEN74A2ZYC6NIMHW0HHArizona Cats1151295654400cats love itCats love it! And Wellness is a brand I trust. Cats only get canned food once a week as a treat, and this does not adversely affect kitty tummies or the litter box between premium dry food meals.
343173343173B000WFEN74AUW5XC67E9MILCold In Seattle "Penny Pinching"1151294012800The Best Money can Buy for your Cat, Next to Homemade - Revised for TurkeyI like to provide variety for the cats, however, I like to stick with single protein sources. So in addition to Wellness Canned Cat Food for Adult Cats, Chicken Formula (Pack of 12 12.5 Ounce Cans), I also get this one to add on with a higher protein diet.

I have 3 cats, one is now 17 years old. I started using this shortly after the pet food recalls in 2007. The lack of Grains, and real meat (not the processed kind you find in the grocery store), is what promotes the health of your pet carnivore.

While there are some veggies, the smell will tell you the amount of meat in this product. I supplement with one serving from Holistic Select Feline Radiant Adult and Kitten Health Chicken Meal Recipe Dry Cat Food, 3-Pound Bag.

The cats ages range currently from 7 to 17. The below feeding schedule is modified slightly (sometimes only two feedings a day, maybe half the amount of dry, etc.) If your cat has a sensitive tummy, it is best to feed more frequent, smaller meals each day.

The 7 and 13 yo boys get about 1/4 cup dry per day.
The 17 yo girl gets about 1/8 cup dry per day.

I then split one can between all three twice a day. When the can is first opened, I add little hot water to the wet food. This guarantees a consistent texture between different batches, The remainder of the can is covered with a plastic lid, and placed in the refrigerator. I then later pull out (don't leave in fridge for more than 2 days), separate into three servings, and mix at least 1/8 cup hot water. Then, nuke for 5 to 7 seconds (to warm up), and walla, a gravy mix meal for kitties.

I can verify 100% that their health improved greatly after switching from the cheap, grocery store dry. Its the only reason Baby Girl is still alive. If you can't afford heavy vet bills, put your pets on this and some money into savings, in lieu of the overpriced pet insurance.

With the free shipping, it is still a deal.
343174343174B000WFEN74APSJG67OBE25JDerpa Derp "somuchbetter"1151292630400My cat's favorite flavor!Unlike one of the previous reviewers, this is one of my cat's absolute favorite variety. He usually will just lick the can clean while my other cat eats the food, but this is one he truly enjoys eating.
343175343175B000WFEN74A93DESZP7JIXXSandman1151292198400My three male cats love this!!So far, my three male kitties have loved all the Wellness wet foods I've bought for them. However, they really went wild over this, and it's become a real favorite.
343176343176B000WFEN74AHUYC6DE7Z0FGPiper1151291161600Smells fishy, so the cats love itI only buy Wellness for my cats and I try to give them a variety, so I've tried most of the flavors. The sardine seafood blend is by far the worst smelling flavor the cats have tried. And of course it's their favorite. They lick the bowl on this one. It's definitely a good pick for older cats that need softer food (mushy) or finicky eaters.
343177343177B000WFEN74AL1XV4L25FZ2SGameMaker1151290470400Very high quality food, and cat likes itI recently did a bunch of research on Cat nutrition, and my conclusion was that the Wellness cat foods offered the best combination of excellent nutrition, good variety, and affordability. So I bought some for my crotchety, picky, 16+ year old cat who had been eating Nutro. To my great relief, she accepted the switch without complaint!

Although I haven't had a long history with this cat food yet, I've been pleased with the results so far, and based on my research I'm convinced I'm doing right by my furry friend. I certainly recommend it.
343178343178B000WFEN74A2K9BEM9BRIJ7HI love books "mcdg"1121290297600difficult to review for a cat but...The product seemed great from the human viewpoint: high protein, no grain, quality ingredients and relatively reasonably priced on Amazon. However, my cats would not touch the food. I have one, older female, slightly fussy part Maine coon and a second, very large young male, an outdoor stray who has adopted us. Neither of them would eat it, both preferred the dry food (Wellness Salmon). I usually give them both wet and dry food. The wet food, a different brand, is always eaten first but this time, both bowls of Wellness Canned cat food were left pretty much untouched after the first taste and remained so until I tossed the food the next day! I know cats are very particular ...they often dislike something for no reason I can understand and it doesn't necessarily imply a faulty product ... but if a young, hungry stray decides against it, in this case, I reckon something is off with the product.
343179343179B000WFEN74A2EJG529WY8JXAllison1131289174400She must be a picky eater.My cat barely touches this stuff, especially after the can's been open for about a day or two. This is probably because she was most likely raise on cheap food (we adopted her as an adult) but I can't be sure. Apparently healthy food is less appealing to cats...
343180343180B000WFEN74AVJ2FDL5IT7X0L. Shields1151289174400Cat loves this and it's a high quality foodI have a 1 1/2 year old cat and started feeding him canned food after reading about how cats don't naturally have a strong thirst drive and need most of their water to come from their food like in nature. Also as another reviewer said, this food doesn't have any of the crappy by-products that "Science Diet" and other highly marketed brands have. These brands even have by-products in their canned food.

Cats are carnivores so the majority of their diet needs to be meat (aside from the small amount of veggies you might find in a mouse's or rabbit's stomach in the wild).

Aside from that, my cat LOVES this food and it is very good for him. He eats a variety of flavors so he doesn't get sick of one.
343181343181B000WFEN74A1Q54DEZTPB7F5Shahar Goldin1151288915200My cats love this stuffI've been feeding my cats wellness since I weaned the stray kitten and got the shelter kitten, and they seem to like all the flavours plenty but I've been alternating this and the straight chicken stuff for the past few weeks and they've basically stopped eating the chicken stuff, I guess saving space for this stuff instead.

343183343183B000WFEN74A1Y3ON8R8Z8SKIR. Reuther "VAMtnGal"1141288742400Good Cat FoodMy cats do like the food, although when I first started to feed them they kind of picked at it. Now I feed them only this food and a little bit of the dry food from this company and its no problem. My one cat was over weight and he is now more active and running around with the other cats and he looks much healthier and younger. I have one cat that vomits a lot and have had to buy special vet food, which helped him stop vomiting and he can eat this food too with no problem. I will say that the cats do like the chicken and herring recipe better, I think they like fish in general more then poultry. I do highly recommend this food, its worth the price, considering the vet food is just as expensive and there are lots of pork by-products and low quality grains in the ingredient list.
343184343184B000WFEN74AM16JDIEIL5F3S. Golis1151287878400My Cats Health Improved with This FoodI rescued three cats that were suffering from malnutrition. I started feeding them wellness canned chicken cat food in small portions mixed with organic chicken broth. I fed them a few times a day, and within a week they had more energy, and were putting on weight. Within a month their coat was soft and shinny. These cats did a total turn around and I believe that this fine food saved their lives. I continued feeding the cats this food because I am confident that the high protein and natural antioxidants will keep my cats healthy and it will also keep the cats hydrated. I am very pleased with this food. It is the next best thing to a raw diet.

343185343185B000WFEN74A6DLE6CKQT12KVickie T. "Cat Maven"1151285286400Purr-fect!I haven't bought Wellness through Amazon yet, but the prices are very competitive and will do so. After discovering they carried Wellness, wanted to comment on the product. When I adopted my cat, she came with unrevealed health problems. She was on a nebulizer every day, no energy, vomiting and more. As one reviewer stated, I did some internet research. I tried some of the top of the line natural foods. Once I got her on the Wellness wet food, her health was a complete turnaround. She's twelve and acts like four or five years of age. No more health problems. The consistency is smooth, a potential problem for a lot of cats that won't eat chunky foods. I absolutely can not recommend this food more highly. The dry, is very small pieces and she's slow to eat it, but I keep it as a 'treat' food. The wet is perfect in every way.
343186343186B000WFEN74A264XR8LZ2YX05flowerpower1151276905600approved by all my catsWhen not feeding raw or home-cooked meals, I've been giving Wellness to my cats for years, specifically the Chicken or Turkey. They love it, are vibrant and healthy. High quality, human grade ingredients. Thanks, Wellness!
343187343187B000WFEN74AVJ2FDL5IT7X0L. Shields1151264464000My cat loves this stuffOver the past 2 weeks I've been transitioning my 10 month old cat from dry to wet food. This is the only wet food that he really eats with enthusiasm. I really think it helped in the transition. We've also tried Wellness Core and EVO (also high quality foods) but he likes this stuff the best.
343188343188B000WFEN74A2ZZP9BDSV8XJELizzie's Mom1151251417600wellness is a fine productPer the earlier post. I have purchased this product in this size can for about this price, so I see no problem. I'm trying to feed my cat grain free food and this is the only one I've found so far that she will eat. It's a good product and good value
343189343189B000WFEN74A1O1P7VF2OAZITJ. Stancil1151236816000My cats LOVE this food!Both of my cats run to their bowl like it's treat time when I open a can of this flavor of Wellness cat food. They are really picky too. This flavor is much juicer, has more 'gravy' in it than all the other flavors we've tried. I've even been able to put some liquid antibiotic in the gravy and it gets gobbled up. That was a real treat for me-not having to bother with the syringe dosing!
343190343190B000WFEN74AA88DF6TVFYUXL. Kuhr "Lore"1111214956800No ThanksMy Cats are on a Grain Free Dry Food, I decided to add some wholesome Grain Free Canned Food, Wellness was said to have an excellent product, and I have no doubt that they do, my cats in the past would eat any slop that comes out of a can, but I wanted quality for them as I finally got them on a quality dry food, Unfortunately, they turned up their nose at the Wellness Beef & Chicken Grain Free Canned, I have even tried the other variety of flavors... no dice, they will not even try it, they will lap up the juices and leave the bowl. 12 paws down from this 3 cat household.
343191343191B000WFEN74ATMJL2BG7S6NPKaren D. Unruh1151183939200My cat Nigel does not throw up anymore !!After my vet recommended switching from the basic Petsmart variety lo quality dry food, I tried Wellness canned cat food (even though the price was at least 3 times more expensive than the old Pro Plan). My one cat would regularly throw up immediately following a meal of Pro Plan dry food. The results now are that my cat has not thrown up in the 3 weeks since he has been on this food. I trust my vet and will continue to feed this food. My local Food Co-Op carries this food and it is cheaper than the vet's price. My cat's health is important to me.
I switch between the chicken and the salmon varieties. My 4 cats get 1/2 can(of a 5.5 ounce can) each - a day, plus, I also give them 3 tablespoons of the Wellness dry food a day. Try it for a month and you will be pleased with the results!
343192343192B000WFEN74A3SDS1ZRAFSKBGFarahJoan3441331078400Terrible Delivery from AmazonWe usually order this from Petco because our cat has health problems and can only eat specific types of cat food. Ordering online at Amazon is easier and cheaper. But This time I noticed that this item, ordered FROM Amazon, was being promoted as a 2 day shipping item, despite having Prime Membership, and I needed it as soon as possible. After about a week of ordering this '2 day shipping item' i received notification that it had not yet shipped and was expected to be delivered a month later! The reasoning I was given was that if I order from Amazon.com directly I should expect a month wait time and they were out of stock. 1-I received no notification that the item was out of stock. 2-Don't promote something as a special with 2 day shipping when you don't mean it. People order things based on delivery time for a reason. I'm angry that I wasted my time and was relying for the food to get here in a timely manner. I will not order directly from Amazon again.

343194343194B000WFEN74A29JUMRL1US6YPHTBK3451278201600Fantastic Food for Good Cat HealthThe pet food industry can be one of the most infuriating as you start doing research and discovering what trash manufacturers (and the vets who get paid off by the manufacturers) push onto the unsuspecting public. For reference, don't ask your vet - do some Internet research at sites like, for example, [...]. What you'll find is that even the supposed "high-end" lines from basically every major supermarket label are horrible for your fuzzy friends. People who trust the marketing or trust their vets overpay and feed their cats foods that are full of carcinogens, cheap ingredients that are inappropriate for a cat's digestive system, and byproducts that provide nothing of value and are basically a way to make cheap profit off of literal garbage. It's a tragedy, as these same cats end up with shorter lifespans, kidney problems, UTIs, cancer, and a host of other issues, all of which could have been avoided by a high quality food.

This is an A-Grade food. What you'll find here is very high protein content, many meat meals, potatoes, salmon oil, flax seed, and no grains, which is great as a cat is not an omnivore, it's a carnivore, and it simply does not need grains. It has 50 percent protein, which is among the highest you'll see in cat food. The first 4 ingredients are all meats.

What you will NOT find here is the kind of junk you'll see in things like Purina One and Science Diet - byproducts (aka beaks, feathers, bird feet), brewers rice (aka the waste product from making beer), wheat flour (a leading cause of pet allergies), corn gluten (a cheap waste of space), and things like "liver flavor" (because they don't want to pay for the real thing). I didn't just pull those ingredients out of the air - I was reading the ingredients list of Purina One. It's pathetic.

Don't feed your cats trash. Pay a little more to feed them good food now, and they'll lead longer, healthier, more satisfied lives as a result. It's worth it.
343195343195B000WFEN74AC5CXEI4SWRRPGeo1233451277078400Healthy Kitten FoodI purchased this food on the recommendations of cat nutrition experts in the know. I read about Wellness foods online as being an excellent food for cats.

My kitten really enjoys this food. It is his favorite canned variety of several that I rotate feeding him. I only wish the Wellness came in larger cans and offered more varieties just for kittens.

I sure hope it's as good as claimed...I want to give my beautiful kitten the best possible diet but it is hard to know what is really lurking in those cans.

That is why I only buy what is considered high-quality, premium foods for him. He eats a mixture of canned and frozen raw from Nature's Variety.

(The raw medallions are his favorite of everything I feed him! ) I will continue to feed him Wellness canned food as he matures.
