Fantastic product for finicky cats who have a weight issue
posted 5 years ago
We have 3 cats, two of whom need to watch their weight and one who eats a piece or two at a time. They are all very particular about their dry food. Also we have two long haired cats who need hairball control. Our wonderful vet had us try a few light foods but our cats would spit the food out and would not eat. We also tried mixing half regular hairball and hairball light from another very good brand. The cats would pick out the regular hairball food and leave the light one behind. They would also try to remove the hairball light from their bowls. They would flip the bowls over and try to bury the food. We knew we needed to have a food that was less caloric than the one we were using. Our vet suggested breaking away from our previous brand and trying a new brand and type of food for the cats. We agreed to try the new brand (new to us anyway) because we trust our vet implicitly with our cats and their health. Our vet recommended Purina OM. I am so very glad we tried it!! What a terrific product!! All of our cats eat it without any issues. Even better than that is that the product has worked to help our two "chunky" cats lose the weight the vet recommended, it has helped them to maintain their body weights at their new level and it also helped to control the hairball issues. We are extremely pleased with Purina OM and are very thankful to our vet for recommending it to help ensure our cats are not only healthy but very happy as well.
Pros: cats love it, good ingredients, works well

Good For Weight Loss
posted 5 years ago
One of our cats was overweight and was prescribed this food by the vet. Since starting her diet five months ago, she has slimmed down from 17 pounds to 12 pounds. This food does cost a lot, but it's no more than the fancier dry foods you can buy at the pet store, and none of those foods worked for weight loss.
Pros: Cats lose weight and seem to enjoy the taste
Cons: Expensive, have to buy at the vet's office

Only thing that worked!

My cat Kharma was steadily climbing in weight, and my vet actually classified her as 'obese' at her examination. I tried many different light foods, I tried limiting her portions (which is difficult with 2 other cats in a small apartment), playing with her more... Her weight stabilized but it wouldn't go down. It literally looked like she had swallowed a football.
My vet said she might be "carbohydrate intolerant," which sounded a little strange but I went with it. Since switching her to this "low carb, high protein" food, she eats less on her own. As a bonus, she really likes the taste (and my other cats prefer it over Science Diet, although I don't let them have the OM because it's $20 a bag and their weight is within normal range).
Kharma has steadily been losing weight. Now 8-1/2 years old, she's more playful than she was before I switched her diet, she sheds less, her coat went from dull dandruff-city to shiny (not to mention she can groom herself better), and it's just wonderful to see such a complete 180!
I would recommend this to anyone who has all but given up on their kitty's battle of the bulge.
Pros: good for football-shaped kitties, good taste, shiny coat
Cons: a bit expensive, but she eats less. plus fending off obesity-related disease is a cost-savings

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
