After buying the economy pack of this my fussy cat decided he didn't like it anymore, so I'm sneaking it into his other food until it's gone. It's good value for good quality, ethical cat food though, and my cat did use to like it.
Be careful with this food! Vomiting and allergies!
I used to buy this brand for my cat in the past. At some point zooplus was out of stock, so for a while, I tried other brands. In the past month, my cat started eating again Applaws. At first, she started loosing weight and generally she wasn't eager to eat this food. In less than a month, she started vomiting every night (and she is on the type of cat that vomits) and she developed some clogs in her skin (also not the type of cat who has skin problem). It all stopped after changing the food.
My cats favourites. Wouldn't eat anything else. Also saving on bulk purchases. My only problem is when the food arrives there is no room to store it. 😁 But it's a good complaint.
Very satisfied with zooplus and their products.
I don't know for sure how is this food... I have 3 cats. For one of them is great 6y lost from 5,6kg to 5,2kg in 2 months, the second one gained weight from 7,4kg to 7,7 kg and the third one doesn't like it to much, but still eat a little. She lost from 4,4kg to 3,4kg in 2 months BUT her liver got bad, so bad that she has one week since she doesn't want to eat at all and the blood tests showed us damaged liver - she is 5 y apartment cat and never had health issues. Could it be from this food?
Luna, my fussy cat, loves it and completely clears her dish. I like it too because it doesn't smell strongly.
She's so fond of Applaws food pellets that I had to put them in one of those brain teasing tower feeders, to prevent her from gobbling them up, and make her chew them. The tower slows her down and makes her have think a bit about how she reaches them. She's quite a dab hand at scooping up the pellets individually and it's fun to guess which one she'll go for next!
...to my boy's food. He has allergies and has been on a prescription diet for a while, but I'm keen to get him onto more natural foods. Mixing this in with his existing diet, he seems to love it and I'm happy that he's getting more meat and less grain into his diet. If he continues to enjoy it and not suffer any negative side-effects, I'll be looking to order more.
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.
We have always fed our cats dry food but on the recommendation of our breeder swapped to Applaws for the higher protein and lower grain contents. All four of them love it and come running when the pack shakes! Their condition is superb so what more could I ask of a food?
I purchased these biscuits to try as their first grain free biscuits due to struggling to find grain free food. I then realised how expensive this food was and tried another brand which also suited.
Our cats did love these biscuits!
Good value with better quality ingredients than some other higher priced dry foods. The extra salmon is extra good too. The gang of four (cats) now prefer better quality dry foods to the (more budget) all meat canned wet food so eat less of the canned food (but they all prefer Acana dry even more and Orijen dry even more still). Pity Applaws doesn’t (yet?) offer an alternative to chicken as the main protein to give even more variety in their dry food.
I've recently been trolling out dry foods as my cats have mainly been on a wet food diet, and this one was by far their favourite. They meowed excited everytime I got the bag out the cuboard. It has a zippy thing too which is great for keeping the kibble fresh
