Will nutro natural choice cat food, lower the amount of stool my cats have???
post #2 of 15
I'm not sure about reducing the amount your cat goes. It will reduce the smell quite a bit.

That is one of the claims they make, but no one could say for sure until you test it for yourself. All of my cats are on the Nutro natural choice indoor formula.

It's not directly mentioned in any of the literature, although it is going to lessen the stool odor. Common sense would tell me that if the lack of corn in the dog foods causes dogs to poop less (38 pounds of poo per 100 lbs of dog food, compared to 73 pounds per 100 pounds of Purina), I'd imagine that the lack of corn in it would cause cats to poop less too. I don't know for sure though. I know my cats' poop doesn't stink so awful anymore. They used to stink up the whole house every time they went, now I don't smell it until I'm leaning over the box with a litter scoop. Definitely not a bad thing there!

My kitties eat the Weight Mgmt. formulas in wet pouches & dry kibbles. The Wt. Mgmt. formula has more fiber so that it increases the stool size. Dexter has a scent sac plugging problem & the larger stool is suposed to help express the sac. If you want a smaller stool... any Wt. control formula would not be for you. My kitties stools do not smell bad...just regular cat poop odor.

I use Nutro Natural Choice wt. management dry for my cats (except those on a special diet), I can say the stool odor is much improved, I would say the volume of stool is less as well.

Yes, definitely less volume.

I also feed the wgt. management to my adults. My kitten is on the kitten formula. I would say that the odor is less & let's face it that's a good thing. There is still an odor. I didn't notice a differnce in amount. However, when my cats were on Wellness they had terrible diarreha (sp?), which is not a problem on the Nutro Natural. I also like the fact that the size of the pieces forces them to chew the food (better for their teeth).

I have another question!!! Joei has diahhea on Iams and Eukanuba low residue
Will Nutro take care of this? The vet thinks he may have a food allergy

If he has a food allergy, it depends on what he's reacting to. Nutro does not use any corn (except corn gluten meal) - I noticed the original formula Iams uses corn grits and corn meal, the lamb and rice Iams formula, uses corn meal. Corn is only one item that your cat may react to...usually to figure out if food allergies are involved, your vet would have you using the IVD line of foods which feature a single protein and single carb source (I went this route with my Joshua (RB). Canned flavors include rabbit and green pea, duck and green pea etc.

Oh let me tell you my Iams story I fed their naturally preserved version for a few years back in the early 90's. Suddenly, I had them back away from the food bowl with a brand new 20 lb. bag I'd opened (expiration date was fine). I called the company, they replaced it...my cats did the same thing with the next bag. That was enough for me to quit feeding it to them!
