Does anyone have any experience with this food? I've just started feeding the rabbit version to my cat with allergies. She was on ZiwiPeak venison. After 3 days she has no ill effects from the transition. No loose stool and in fact she is improving from problems she experienced with her Ziwipeak. I believe it is made by Lotus. I am also trying Addiction rabbit. They look very similar but the Addiction has blueberries and sweet potato. Hound and Gatos is just meat, comes in rabbit, beef, pheasant, etc.

Does anyone know who cans it?

It is supposed to be canned by Lotus, here is the source for that info

My cat has IBD and cannot eat additives like carageenan but brewer's yeast has never been a problem for her in food.

Tried the Pheasant, Rabbit, Beef, and Salmon.  Indoor (picky) cats shunned all.  Outdoor ferals were fine with them - not *thrilled*, but fine.  Rabbit and Pheasant are very "wet" with more liquid than you would expect in a pate style food.

I think they have changed their recipe.  I originally rejected this food because it had Brewer's Yeast in it, one of Bella's allergens.  I brought home a can for the maus to try, and the ingredients list no longer has Brewer's Yeast in it.  Bella loved it and cleaned out all the bowls.  (I'm pretty sure that at this point, she'll devour any chicken based food.)

I just bought a can of the "beef" for the boys to try.  It seems like it should be a great food....time will tell.  I hope they like it since I have been feeding Addiction for a long time....but it won't be available in Canada much longer....unless we get a new distributor.
