Grain free canned food - where can I buy?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a grain free canned food for Bugsy. He eats Orijen, and I want to keep him on grain free on wet as well.
I am looking for something that will not break my bank though. I can buy on the internet, but they only sell cases of 12 or 24 for each flavor, and I will run the risk of him not liking it.
What do you feed, where do you get it, and how much do you pay for it? Also, what flavor do your cats like the most?
Online the best price I can get is for EVO...
Thanks!!

I feed Wellness wet and I get it at our local feed store. It runs about $1.50 for the large can (13 oz). I get a variety of flavors because my cats seem to get tired of one flavor. I usually buy 2 of each available flavor. The beef and beef and chicken are a favorite at our house.

Carolina - go to Petsmart or Petco & buy 1 can of each one you can find [both carry the Blue Buffalo, Sheba & Avoderm - Petco also carries wellness, solid gold, natural balance & nature's recipe]. read the labels - some varieties have flaxseed, but no other grains. some w/o grains have by-products - but you can read ingredients online at their sites [which is what i just did!] & narrow that way.

No Luck at Petsmart - the only two no grain they had were Sheba and By Nature Organics, but both are super expensive - at least when compared to EVO...
I bought a bunch of good canned for the moment, he loves Avoderm (it does have grains, though), and liked Authority as well. He was not impressed with Blue Buffalo, but it also has grains... I think I will go to Petco to see what they got.
Do you feed EVO? If so, where do you get it?

Sharky - Where do you buy it? What flavor is the most popular in your house?

I can get EVO canned at the pet store an hour from me (2 nearest pet stores are an hour from me - Petco & an independent one) - the independent one carries the cans. The only ones I saw were the 95% meat (I *think*).....but I can't remember the price. The only other grain free is Wellness, which is pricey!

oh, btw, there's a little 'mom & pop' pet food store in Denton called Fish'n'Chirps - you might call & ask them about EVO. that's the only place i used to be able to find Merricks & Halo's Spot's Stew [neither of which passed in my house]. Petco carries the Halo's, 'cause i've seen it there... not sure if i've ever seen Merricks or EVO @ the local Petco.

I buy Wellness from Petco and have discovered that no matter how hungry the two are, they will only, and I do mean ONLY eat the chicken and turkey flavors. They absolutley turn their noses up at any of the other flavors Wellness has.

Hennessy likes Natural Balance grain free wets (Well, okay, he likes the venison and tolerates the duck). (ETA: from Petco. Silly me...)

Blue Buffalo "Blue Wilderness" has two grain free, chicken and turkey.

Avoderm "Select Cuts" are grain free, three of them.

The PetSmart in my area just started stocking the Blue Wilderness grain free. I get the canned Wellness grain free from a local health food store.

There is one (maybe two, not for sure) from Natural Balance that is grain free, the chicken and liver pate'. http://www.naturalbalance.net/catfor...CatCanned.html

Sometimes the grooming pet shops will carry premium pet food. I stopped in one to buy shampoo for the dogs and they stocked Nature's Variety Instinct and Solid Gold.

It is easier to try a few cans before getting a case. There are two places that I have ordered single cans from on the internet without any problems.
