Is Wellness too rich

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
for a cat w/ loose stool? My vet told me not to offer Ernie rice and chicken. I gave her a bit of Fancy Feast chicken in gravy after draining out a bit of the gravy. I kept a bowl of Wellness out at all times up until a few weeks ago when I realized she wouldn't eat it unless I offered it to her at meal times. Is a small bowl of it okay as an alternative to Fancy Feast? Also, she must get all her water from the wet food b/c she doesn't drink from the bowl. I offered her water after she had a loose stool and she refused it. It's possible she drinks when I'm not home. Obviously, it's always out for her.

I think it depends on the cat. I know that for one of my cats wellness dry was too rich and gave him loose stool but I know other people here have had good experience with Wellness. As far as getting your cat to drink, have you tried one of the cat water fountains. Cats really like moving water.

I have my cat on wellness core and she has pea sized poo stools. She also has been vomiting so I'm changing her onto the Royal Canin Digestive Comfort 38. I'm going to try it anyways. If she does not do good I'll go back to the wellness.

Hugs,

Wellness (dry or wet) was too rich for my older cat. I changed him and my other cat to Now! grain-free dry and it worked well with them.

I had my two on Wellness Kitten Formula (green bag) for most of their formative months which they seemed to do well on, later experimented with other foods and then tried them (after a year) on Wellness' Adult (blue bag.) It was too rich and gave them loose stool. Currently they are doing well on Eagle Pack adult (mixed with some Royal Canin Indoor 27 Adult.) No loose stool here.

Are you talking about Core? There is a big difference...

We feed CORE which is too rich for our kittens so I'm looking into alternatives.

Taste of the wild seems to be less rich... if you can access them orijen and acana also do well for grain frees
