Does anyone feed Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Right now I'm feeding my cat Harmony Farms but I'd like to switch to something higher quality. What does everyone think of Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul? It's a much higher quality than I'm feeding and I like that it's made with all fresh meats and natural ingredients. It's a great price too! What do you guys think of it and how do your cats like it?

My cats are on it, and they all love it. All are in very good condition, the vets always comment on how great they look. My former feral now has the shiniest coat - and her tail tip is really soft. That's the only part of her I've touched.

Its not the greatest food out there, but its great quality for the price, and as a grad student, I can't afford the top quality. Its a great food for a good price though.

It is one of the best (if not THE BEST) for the price range. Since my picky pants cats do not eat the quality wet I would like, I have upgraded their dry Chicken Soup for a higher quality one. Right now I can afford it, but if things get tight I would go back to chicken soup in a heart beat.

My dog eats a mix that contains Chicken Soup too

it can be hard to find, tho. i think that Petsmart's Authority is equivalent to it, & much easier for me to obtain, as well.
the place i used to buy the Chicken Soup has closed... i might be able to find it elsewhere, but Petsmart is so convenient! they also carry the RC special 33, the other kibble i get, as well as the CatAttract litter... one stop shopping!

I've been feeding it to mine for almost two years with exellent results. My youngest three love it. Unfortunately, my oldest Katie, who's 16, won't touch it, so I buy separate wet and dry for her. Figures. She just has to be picky.

I am considering putting this in their rotation to keep costs down...I refuse to buy Authority because it is from Petdumb, as a I call it (it sells animals). Besides, the feed store is closer to me than a Petsmart.

It's in my rotation too. It works well, from the standpoint of my cats general look & health.

I also use it for the dogs.

I feed mine CS Adult light and they do really well on it. Everyone likes it and they have healthy coats/skin. I like the quality, ingredients, and price and they've never had a recall on their dry food.

they may not have but the plant that makes it has..IMHO recalls are not a HUGE issue in choosing as AFTER the companies are MORE on guard ...

Chicken soup has never worked well in my house but for the $$ it is a good food IMHO

I used to feed it and was very pleased with it. The only reason I do not feed it now is that one of my cats had crystals and I have to feed him a scrip diet so everybody gets that

I feed it to my Sphynx.

I have not given it to my sphynx yet.
She is still on royal canin kitten food but I need to switch because she will be 1 next month.

Thanks for all the responses and input! It sounds like everyone's cats have had really good results with it, which is good to know. Price is definitely a factor for me and this is a high quality food that's affordable. I would be interested in the Adult Cat Light Formula for my cat – she is slightly overweight and her vet said that we need to transition her to a diet or light food. Anyone feed this?

I got a bag from my dad for my 13 year old lady- I believe it's the senior hairball formula. She absolutely loves it, and I always see the babies sneaking it (technically not babies). Right now it's mixed with some other senior brand- I can't afford to feed only high-quality expensive foods to them, so I mix a high-quality expensive food with a cheaper food. Which reminds me... I need to tell my dad to get me another huge bag of it from his customer that sells it at his feed store. Thanks for indirectly reminding me

So, I definitely recommend Chicken Soup. I have never tried any other formulas, but I assume they are just as great. If you have the means to get it, go for it!

I feed the Chicken Soup adult to 2 of my 3 cats (the 3rd eats Authority, since it's even cheaper and the other 2 cats won't touch it). The Chicken Soup is about $0.92 for a 6 oz can at my feed store. My 2 cats like it and I like the price

I wouldn't bother with the diet formulas, just feed a smaller portion of the regular version. Diet/light pet foods have more fillers I think. If you can feed 100% wet food (2 meals a day, 3 oz each meal approx.), you should see the weight come off pretty easily. If you feed dry and wet food, it might take longer.
