Has anyone heard of Holistic Select?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

It's a brand at one of the pet stores in my area and it's not too badly priced.

Here's a link to their website if anyone wants to see it, I'm curious as to what you think of the quality.

Thanks

I recognize the logo on the bag, but have not tried it, as we're currently on prescription food over here frown.gif.

 

I'm not a nutrition guru, but from the looks of the ingredients and what little I know, it looks fairly good to me.  At least the main ingredients are meats, and quite a few of them, at that.  And "meat meal" is better than plain "meat" from my understanding. (I'm using the word "meat" in place of chicken, or salmon, or duck, etc.)

Yep, I've definitely heard of it.

It's not  bad IMO. I generally prefer to go grain-free, but I've been thinking of throwing this in my wet food rotation because it is reasonably priced, but still a quality food. We don't sell a lot of it at the store I work at, at least not for cats... we sell a bit more of the dog formulas. But yeah, it's a food I wouldn't feel bad feeding.

If you want to rotate manufacturers, just be aware that it is owned and manufactured by Wellpet, the same company that makes Wellness foods. smile.gif http://www.wellpet.com/holistic-select.aspx

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Yes, indeed, I found it's made by the same company that makes Wellness.

 

After doing some searching and being in Canada, using Mr. Chewy may be the best route for me.

I can pick it up just over the border so shipping is free. They have a great selection of foods and very good prices.

It used to he. called Eagle Pack Holistic Selects and then Wellpet bought Eagle Pack and Wellness (including Mother Hubbard). I don't know if the formulations have. hanged but even if they have remained the same, the sources of the ingredients may have changed as well. I used to feed my dog the kibble when it was eagle pack. I did like the company as they were very forthcoming with information. I was a bit disappointed when they were bought out, especially since it would be associated with wellness (at the time, I was not a big fan of Wellness, still not but have to feed it to my one cat as its one food he will eat.

Hi SweetPea, what is that you dislike about Wellness products?

I also don't really like Wellness because my cats are never allergic to anything but Wellness.   It made one of my cats have skin inflammation for 3 months until I figured out it was Wellness that caused it.  Different parts of the skin have different reactions and those were all horrible looking, and some part has turned black.     I won't forgive the food.

 

My cats don't like holistic select either.  I don't know why.

Hey space, too bad they're allergic.

I'm thinking Orijen for dry, and Evo for canned now.

Only thing is Evo has only one flavor for kittens.
