Avoderm wet food?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Can I get some opinions on Avoderm?

Specifically the small can Avoderm Breeder's Choice Select Cuts chicken. (chunks with gravy)

I know this is a good food, but is there anything in it I should worry about? This seems to be one of Riley's favorites and he is turning his nose up at more and more of his wet food. Right now he only gets it once a week. I would be happy to give it to him more often, but wanted to make sure it would be ok as a frequent diet. (He has no known issues or allergies)

While I'm not the nutrition expert here, I'll put in my two cents:

I include the Select Cuts in a rotation w/other wets and dry food. I love that it's basic- doesn't contain any grains, veggies, or other funky stuff that cats don't really need. The only thing it doesn't have is organ meat, which I think cats should have sometimes. Not a big worry for me, as there is liver in other foods in our rotation. Maybe you could rotate the select cuts and pate?

I tried the pate chicken flavor for the first time last night. It smells like Nutro Max. My kitties didn't care for it.

My guys like the cuts...not sure which ones, though.

I'm not sure if he will eat the pate, haven't tried yet. I may add the chicken cuts into his rotation though. He is starting to turn his nose up at the Evo now as well as Merrick, and won't always eat Wellness either.

I think he just gets tired of them, it seems like he will eat a particular brand/flavor for about 2 months at the most. He will occasionally go back to an "old" one after a couple months though.

The problem is that buying it by the can is too expensive, but every time I buy a case, he stops eating halfway through! Picky little bugger!

Avoderm pate is Zek's favorite food, but since he had an allergy flare up around the same time that I fed him that, he's not allowed to have any right now. It's really too bad because he turns his nose up and most of the other foods I offer or only takes a few bites.

The select cuts is one of the few grain-free wet foods that Matilda seems to like.
