Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the Only Food My Maine Coon Will Eat!! After trying several common brands of cat food, to no avail, in an effort to finally find a brand of cat food my maine coon will eat, out of desperation, I ventured into a local pet store. I had already decided that since I don't eat a lot of grains, I would not subject my maine coon to them, either. After viewing the varieties of cat foods they offered, I decided to try Taste of the Wild - Canyon River and I have not looked back!! For the first time, my maine coon actually consumed an entire bag of cat food! He has fewer hair balls and his coat is sleek and healthy. Since Taste of the Wild has a limited distribution in my area and the pet store where I originally purchased it has closed, I have mapped out every location where I can purchase it. Compared to other, popular cat foods, this product may be a bit pricey. However, my maine coon loves it and I see it as a high quality cat food product that is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally saved my IBS/Allergy Cat's life! My cat Larry has always had a sensitive system, and after seven years of digestive flare-ups, accidents and baths, he was in such failing health and had lost so much weight that I called the vet to make what was to be his final appointment. No other food choice had made a difference for long, and I felt that we had reached the end of a painful journey, and I was broken-hearted. The vet suggested that I try one last food change, as what he was seeing might be an allergy to poultry products in addition to his IBS. I researched alternative protein sources, and found Canyon River Formula, with absolutely no poultry! I was able to buy it locally in my small rural town, and the price was reasonable, which as I was feeding 5 cats at the time was a real consideration. I decided to give it a try, and it was like a miracle. Almost overnight Larry started gaining weight, his coat recovered, and the accidents stopped! It has been just over a year now, and life is completely diffferent from what it was. We love Canyon River Formula! Thank you so much--your food saved Larry's life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind We switched to Taste of the Wild Canyon River Feline after much research and debate over our newest kittens developed skin ailments and stomach distress. Past incidents with our dog, and an acquaintance's dog having had allergies to proteins in commercial chicken meat, and by-products, led us to removing all chicken as food for all of our pets. A Vet failed to acknowledge that an allergy to chicken proteins in a leading allergy in canines. Once that was brought to my attention we ditched that Vet and changed our entire feeding routine. All of the pet ailments in both cats & dogs eased up and vanished within 2 weeks of removing chicken. I found the Trout flavor and have seen little or no stomach distress in any of the animals. A world of difference in our house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can see improvement in my cat in just 1 week! I have 2 cats, one has skin allergies, I decided to try a grain free diet. In just one week I was able to see a definite improvement, and his digestion has improved also. I was surprised he liked it immediately and doesn't eat nearly as much as he did before. I also appreciate the fact that this is made in Missouri! You showed me! Thank you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats are thrilled mom was hunting new food for To be honest TOTW for my clowder of kitties was a bit of an after thought. I had been hopelessly searching for a food for my pom Scooter because of his apparent allergies. After trying different brands, research and recommendations I landed on TOTW salmon. Scooter had a large patch of raw skin on his back from scratching. After maybe a month the patch cleared up and his fur grew back. I was so happy I felt it would be unfair not to switch kitties to TOTW also. I must say a great side affect is they eat less and are much more satisfied. Sadly I had high heating bills and this month had to buy cheaper food. I so look forward to my SS check so I can get TOTW. They are not satisfied this month. Everytime I move they are under foot looking for their TOTW. Extremely unhappy with mom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat, Cadillac, loves it! The store where I usually buy my cat food does not sell it anymore, so I needed to find a replacement. I went to the local feed store and found Taste of the Wild - Canyon River Feline Formula with Trout and Smoked Salmon. I really liked the fact that there are zero grains in this product, and that the first ingredient is spring-fed trout. The people at the feed store said that if my cat did not like it, I could return it for a refund. When I got home I put some of this new food in a small bowl to see how she would react to it. All I can say is that she immediately started chowing down on it, it was a big hit with her! With all the quality ingredients and probiotics, I can already see that this Taste of the Wild Canyon River Feline Formula with Trout and Smoked Salmon is the only cat food that I will buy from now on. It costs a little more, but it is well worth the price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not right for my cat About a year ago I had switched from Iams to Taste of the Wild because he was coughing up so many hairballs. And it did the trick. No more hairballs and he seemed healthy. However, after about 9 months, he was less active and he was so skinny that you could feel his bones and people who came to the house were always commenting on how skinny he was. It was recommended from the vet that i switch to a lower protein food for health reasons, so I switched from Taste of the Wild about 2 months ago. Within those 2 months, he's running around the house again, climbing the walls again, and I cannot feel his bones like before. So it did help stop the hairballs, but I personally won't be buying this food again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results for my cat This food has changed my cat's health in just one week. Her digestive issues are nearly gone and her coat is softer and smoother than it's been in ages. I found this wonderful food at a local store and my instincts said to try grain free for my cat's health issues. I will recommend this product to everyone.

I just read on a vet site that 3-5% carbohydrates is optimal for cats. anything more can lead to diabetes. Why is this cat food so high at 33.3%?

Asked by: Heimer
The percentage you are suggesting may be referring to canned food, as it is not possible to make a dry kibble with a carbohydrate content that low. Because kibble is much lower in moisture than canned food, the carbohydrate percentage looks significantly higher on an as-fed basis. Our canned Canyon River Feline Formula with Trout and Salmon in Gravy contains 5.41% carbohydrates as-fed. If you have concerns regarding your cat and diabetes, please consult your veterinarian.
