Rated 3 out of 5 by from CLAY?! I havent tried it but one of the first ingrediants is CLAY! Why would I feed my clay to my cat?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat has been eating this food for a couple of weeks now, He was recently diagnosed with diabetes.....the vet wanted him to eat purina dm...he did not like it very much...plus the ingredients were not very good.....since my cat has been eating instinct....he appears healthier....especially his fur.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for all my purrs This is the only cat food all our six cats will eat. My chronically overweight cat is now lean and limber, and all have healthy coats. Their cat boxes are cleaner and less odor. Even my sensitive stomach kitty has had very few episodes since we switched about four years ago. I travel many mile to buy this, so it's worth whatever it costs to ship it to my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I believe this is the best food out there! My cat is 20 years old and loves this food! They also have this brand in Rabbitt which is a big hit. He was having diahera issues and some vomitting and when I bought this food his stool was normal again. It is a true miracle how much this food helps the cat. His coat looks sharper too. I definately recommend this food to any cat owner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He eats it up. My cat really likes this food. I either give it to him straight or I mix it with a little dry food. I really like the fact that it is grain and gluten free and it's good for sensitive stomachs since he has been known to have a bad belly sometimes.

Q&A

does it also help prevent uric acid crystal formation, as Prescription Diet's CD wet chicken and veg stew does?

Montmorillonite Clay?

What's with the clay in the ingredients? I have always been careful to use non-clay cat litter, so that my cats do not breathe or ingest clay. Between my two elderly cats, I am giving medications and supplements for diabetes, CRF, hyperthyroidism, and arthritis. So, my main concern with clay in the food is that it will absorb or bond with medications and supplements, reducing their effective dosages.
Asked by: House Ape
Thank you for your question. Montmorillonite is a natural clay that Nature's Variety obtains from deposits in southern Utah that is approved by AAFCO for use as an anticaking processing aid. It is extensively tested to make sure each batch is dioxin free. Montmorillonite clay, according to the manufacturer, should not bond with medications or supplements but it is always wise to speak with your veterinarian.

I'd also like to know what the ash content is.

If one pays to have a cat seen by a specialty hospital for bladder problems -- you start reading labels. I know the manufacturers do NOT have to list these values, but I really wish they would because of its' importance to helping our animals.
Asked by: klwall
The ash content of this product is 2.002%, Ash is the inorganic (non-carbon) mineral portion of any substance. When referring to dog and cat food, "ash content" is the mineral matter, such as magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, and copper.
