Are you still feeding wet food at all??? - Page 2

post #31 of 41
I feed my guys Medi-Cal food, which I know for a fact isn't on the list of recalled products from Menu Foods -- my friend is a customer service rep for Medi-Cal and has been fielding calls about this all week. I checked the Menu Foods list and Medi-Cal isn't included; I also contacted my vet's office (where I buy the food) and they assured me Medi-Cal isn't involved. We do have some cans of Iams pet food ("gifts" from a neighbour), but they were produced long before the recall and should probably be tossed just because they're old ...

i'm still feeding wet style. but nothing with wheat gluten until this is figured out. and nothing from a menu foods plant. my DH agrees with the above precautions. i've been keeping him up to date with the latest info.

right now we're feeding meow mix pouches, fancy feast, friskies (they like a couple loaf flavors), and i just picked up some sheba tubs. tuna & prawn was awesome according to the guys.

I know what you mean. Basically, though...pretty much ANY food that's NOT on Sharky's list is either a Menu produced food or not worth messing with. It's sad and scary. I guess there are exceptions, like Friskies?? but I'm not going there.

Yes, my food wasn't affected by the recall, and my boys are on a grain free diet.

I refuse to get paranoid about it. Both my kits get their Meow Mix wet every night, and they are absolutely healthy and show zero signs of ANY illnesses.

If I had been feeding them something else, I might feel differently about it, of course, but as that is not the case, I feel comfortable keeping things status quo.

Was feeding Nutro wet but switched to Meow Mix select (in the little containers) this week. My cat didn't love the Nutro but he chows the MM.

Does anyone know if Meow Mix select is considered a good quality food? It costs as much as the Nutro kitten cans (and you get slightly less) so I want to make sure I am not wasting my money.

I'm going to continue feeding Natural Balance, Eagle Pack, and meow mix pouches that do not have wheat gluten. I threw away 12 cans of nutro that I was saving for a rainy day (my kitties don't care for it anymore) even though the canned was not recalled.

MM is decent to good ... Nutro minus the wheat containing one s is good to very good ...

I rotate MM in but not as sole since it is fish heavey......Try Solid gold

After learning what the problem was, I will not be feeding any of the affected brands again, ever. Allowing rat poison into the food to me means that those companies have no quality controls, and they will never be in my kitchen again. And I sent * an email telling them so. With all their talk about quality ingredients and blah blah blah, if it wasn't just marketing this wouldn't have happened.

But Zissou loves her wet food, so I've switched to brands that were not affected by the recall at all. Perhaps thinking they have better standards is naive of me, but at least their foods haven't had poison in them yet. So far its meow mix market selects, which I'm not particularly thrilled about but Nutro was the only other food that made the chunky-gravy sort she will eat, and obviously thats out too.

Yep, still feeding wet. Diesel and Tucker were eating mostly Chicken Soup wet before the recall and had just switched to Merricks a few days before things got crazy I feel really safe with Merrick because they don't have wheat gluten also that they have their own plant
