I have not heard of that brand up here. Sammy get's prescription cat food, while Misha gets some of Sammy's food she also gets canned food mixed with dry kitten formula food.

All the best,

I feed it to Fuzzy, my long haired kitty. It's one of the over the counter foods he can eat. He's allergic to beef and seafood and Eukanuba doesn't have either in it. I feed him the hairball formula. All of my kitties like it, but it was making Trouble too fat, so I switched them to lite Nutro. It has less fat in it than the lite Eukanuba.

Hiya!


My newly adopted kitty eats Eukanuba cat food, only reason why is because the shelter was feeding her that while she was there. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep her on it, it is pricey for our budget. My other cat eats Purina One Special Care Hairball Formula and my kitten eats Purina One chicken and rice formula. Most likely Lilly will be switched over to Purina also. :)

Michelle, since Eukanuba seems to have more fat in it, it occurs to me that the shelter might have had her on it to fatten her up a little. Just a thought.

Hello Sammy,

After reading the Eukanuba site I found out that it has alot of fat in it so quite possilby that is the case. I will try to keep her on it for as long as I can. Money is really tight right now and it sure is pricey.

Yep, Michell, I know that feeling well. Perhaps you might be able to find a good quality food that is not so pricey. I normally buy whatever is the cheapest for Misha, in the canned food section, but I mix it with Techni-cal kitty formula. Once when I was really strapped for cash, I would go to the pet store and get whatever free samples I could get.LOL

I don't use it, but I do know that is a good food. It is expensive, but if the cat is doing good on it and you can afford it, go for it!! But like Cl-Leslie said, it is higher in fat so make sure kitty isn't gaining too much weight.

A voice from the past, chiming in here!

I fed ^Woozzy Woo^ Eukanuba. She was an FIV+ rescue kitty who lived with me for 7 1/2 years post-diagnosis, and I finally lost her last August to a fungus infection we could not cure. Anyway, I attribute her extremely long healthy spell to the superior quality diet I fed her. She *loved* her dry Eukanuba, and she was much shinier and healthier looking when I changed from Purina ONE to Eukanuba.

I am a firm believer in feeding premium quality pet foods. Yes, it's initially more expensive, but in the end, you are paying for fewer vet visits, you are not paying for dietary supplements, and your pet may have a longer, healthier life. In the long run, a quality diet is cheaper.

I feed my dogs Nutro Natural Choice lamb and rice. Nutro makes cat food, too, but ^Woozzy Woo^ was doing so well on Eukanuba, I was reluctant to switch her.
