    Highly recommended cat food, August 12, 2011

    I used to work in a specialty pet store, and cats were my specialty. I was the expert on diet after spending much time researching various foods, reading labels, and talking to customers. I’ll share what I learned, and explain why I recommend this food. Science Diet is one of the worst foods for cats, and right down at the bottom you’ll also find Purina, Meow Mix, Eukanuba, and Iams. These have by-products, fillers (corn, soybean mill run, corn gluten, grits, or white rice).

    Many of the better foods like Blue Buffalo, Artemis, Wellness, Instinct, Orijen, California Naturals, Innova Evo, Merrick, and my personal favorite Vet’s Choice Health Extension are world’s apart in quality and most are cheaper than Science Diet pound for pound in many stores.

    These are the ingredients for a typical Science Diet bag minus the vitamins/minerals, just to give you an example:

    Ground Whole Grain Corn, Chicken By-Product Meal, Animal Fat, Dried Beet Pulp, Soybean Oil, Dried Egg Product, Flaxseed.

    Corn is a filler, and it’s the number one ingredient. By products are things like beaks, feathers, etc. They’re waste products. The only decent ingredients are down the ingredient list, meaning that they exist in a smaller amount then the first ingredients. Now, let’s look at a bag of Health Extension that’s both cheaper AND of higher quality:

    Chicken, Chicken Meal, Brown rice, Oats, Dried Egg Product, Chicken Fat, Flaxseed, Menhaden Fish Meal, Herring Oil, Sweet Potato, Cranberries, Blueberries, Tomato Pomace, Natural Barley Malt, Apple Cider Vinegar, Goji Berry, Garlic, Astragalus, Ginger, Blue Green Algae + 6 kinds of probiotics.

    The potato is a nice binder and good for digestion. The oils and flaxseed are good for the coat being rich in Omegs 3’s. The probiotics regulate digestion. The eggs and chicken are good sources of protein. You might not *need* some of the extra ingredients like Goji berry for example, but they’re better than fillers and at the very least harmless to cats.

    I recommend this food because my cats love it, it’s relatively cheap for a quality food, and the ingredients are top-notch. If you want better food, go with Instinct (which my cats love even better, especially the rabbit) but be prepared to pay much more. The absolute best would be to put your cats on a raw diet using pucks of meat prepared by various companies, or simply do it yourself if you’ve researched how to prepare it, but this is an even more expensive route.

    Finicky Appetites Approved, Excellent Quality Product, July 20, 2013

    My three boys (13-yr, 12-yr, and 8-yr-old)have been eating California Natural dry cat food as part of their diet years…That was until Proctor and Gamble crossed the line and had to recall their products of the shelves, not once, but twice! Suddenly, I am faced with the dilemma of finding an immediate replacement. We are talking about some pretty darn finicky eaters, all with different preferences and appetites.

    Well, fortunately, I have a fantastic local pet store owner that was able to recommend some alternatives for me. I bought a grain-free option (Blue Buffalo) and this Health Extension Cat & Kitten dry food. Blue Buffalo (much more expensive by the way, but has always received good reviews as far as I have been aware) was a dud. They wouldn’t touch it. Health Extension—-> They went nuts for it!! I observed their reactions to the smell of the kibble,which was proceeded by an over-enthusiastic frenzy to finish every last available morsel. This response is something that I have only ever seen with one or two of them when receiving special treats or pieces of real prepared chicken. For that, Vet Choice Health Extension gets four stars and repeat business from this consumer.

    Now, my only comment responsible for leaving off that fifth star is not because of the product itself, but because, at the time of this review, the purchase price here on Amazon is $35.68 for the 15-lb bag with Prime free shipping. I just purchased the same 15-lb bag at my local pet store for $24.99. That is $10+ more than a small business owner selling at retail! Outrageous, in my opinion.

    I will continue to purchase this product and highly recommend it, but I will not be paying the inflated price currently advertised on Amazon.

    Purrrrfect food for your beloved cat!, December 20, 2015

    I show dogs and have used the Health Extension dog food for years. It only made sense to give my cats the same treatment. Once upon a time we used to feed our cats the super market brands of cat food. They often had skin issues, dry sky, allergies, runny eyes, and various health problems. It is amazing how everything can change with the diet. Fix the problem from the inside out. This is a great quality food made from good quality ingredients. The first ingredient is organic chicken, followed by many other good ingredients. There are NO by-products in this food. Most supermarket brands have by-products as their main ingredients. There are also no corns and things that are known to cause allergies. My cats love the food and it eat without any problem. Their coat and skin looks great and other health problems have vanished.
