This has always been my favourite brand of food. My cats coats look amazing with it. No skin problems like with other products and no smelly poo. Love the size you get on Zooplus and the price is not comparable anywhere else.
I have a ragdoll cross (from 9 months old and just turned 7) that has been stress over grooming and losing condition. He's been on Hills Science Plan since I got him, I gradually changed in the last three months to Orijen mixed with Applaws and now just Applaws. Within a week of just Applaws, his fur is growing back and soft and silky again and he seems much happier and brighter again.
I've tried a few different brands until I found this one. My cat has a very sensitive tummy and has to be on grain free food. This is the only one I found that is not extremely expensive and yet it is palatable and high quality.
Neither of my cats have had any problems - my little 8 month old has been eating it for a while now and is developing into a fine specimen! They always lick the bowl clean, and I mean spotless! My 9 y/o gets the adult version and also eats well! Both of them love it!
The potatoes were increased from 10% to 14% and some sweet potato was added. Fine - with 80% meat content that's 140g on 1kg, which is still okay. When you think about grainy foods that have maximum 4% meat content then it seems like a luxury!!! However my cats get soft poo every now and then which is not very pleasant with long fur!!! Other than that - perfect food!!!
Regarding my pets:
+ very quickly accepted, our kitty devoured it without ever having eaten dry food before
+ very compatible, small poos, no diarrhea or itching
+ size is perfect, you can really stretch it if you dose it right (2 cats, 7 kg bag, with wet food lasts roughly 5 months)
+ Perfect shape seeing as cats don't chew so much anyway
- quite salty for cat food
From day one they have licked their plates clean which gives me confidence as the food supplier in the household! As I like to have lots of different flavours for my kitties so that they don't get bored. This was a great find! The pieces are a little small but doesn't make much of a difference with a full mouth as they have to chew! Paws and thumbs up :-) And when it runs out we will graduate to the Adult which offers even more flavours!
I've had Murphy from 13 weeks, he's just turned 7. He was pulling chunks of fur out not long after I'd bought him and after a visit to the vets was diagnosed with 33 different allergies, one of which was grains. The vet recommended I put him on grain free dry food and I started him on james well beloved, he's always been on royal cannin and didnt take to this change at all. I tried another brand but he still wasn't enjoying his food any more. I did some research and liked the sound of Applaws especially as its 80% meat. I tried him on the Chicken but he wasn't keen so I persevered and switched to the Chicken and Salmon as he loves his fish. We've never looked back and he doesnt pull out his fur as much, with 33 allergies he was never going to be cured. Now he's 7 I'm looking to switch to the senior brand. Hopefully he'll eat the Chicken this time, as there's only the one flavour, if not I'll be back researching again.
I have two fussy indoor boys that get a mix of wet and dry food. They get wet food morning and night but I like to leave a bowl of dry food out for them to snack on during the day. They have never been really keen on dry food but they tucked straight into this and finished the bowl in one sitting! (Very unusual for them...)
They now have very shiny coats too!
Happy cats! I highly recommend!
