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 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 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 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.

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 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 My animals thrive on this food I started feeding taste of the wild when I got my first dog. She was a pit bull and was trained to be a service dog. This food was recommended and when taking her to the dog park and stores, I was always asked what I fed her as she had a great coat and was in excellent shape. I also had three cats and a ferret. All were fed the feline formula, including my ferret. My ferret lived to be ten years old, which is a long life and the vet always said she lived that long due to eating taste of the wild. She would not eat ferret food and I don't blame her. This brand is the best.

how long can the cat food be left out to free feed before it goes stale?

Asked by: susan5
Susan5, we recommend putting enough food out for 1-2 days when free feeding. Food that is left out for more than 3 days is often not as appealing.

What is "natural flavor?" Does is derive in any way from chicken/eggs?

Asked by: jens
Hi, Jen! Natural flavoring is an ingredient added for enhanced palatability and an extra-tasty meaty flavor in your pet's food. It's made from hydrolyzed chicken, which means that the protein is broken down into small particles that are not recognized by the immune system in a pet with food allergies. Additionally, it does not contain MSG.
