Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats are no longer throwing up! I recently switched to Taste of the Wild from another big named brand dour letters first one H..all the sudden one of my cats began throwing g up every time he ate. Wet or dry. I decided to try this brand in the Canyon River Formula in dry and wet food. Instant success! They love it and no more vomiting! I love how the canned food is in chunks so they don’t stick their feet in it to scoop it out. Very happy I decided to try this brand!! And the kitties are happy too!!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat appreciates the change! Do yourself and your cat a favor and switch to a grain free diet. My cat has never been a picky eater but as I have gotten older and wiser I pay more attention to what is in my cat's kibble. I have noticed an improvement in energy levels, less shedding, and a boost in overall quality of life in very little time with this food. She seems to really enjoy eating it and I will say it has a much more pleasant aroma compared to other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spring in his step! I recently came into possession of a 11 year old cat who had grown up on big brand cat foods and lazed around the house all day. Just before he came to live with me, I asked my friend who works where I bought the food what kind of foods she recommended. She was adamant this was the right brand for me and my cat definitely agrees! He has a lot of energy now and will come running if I shake his food bowl like it's treats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality ingredients I understand! I looked for a long time for a good quality food to feed my two senior cats, and finally found that in Taste of the Wild. My kitties love them, and their bright eyes and shiny fur tell me that they are getting the best nutrition possible. They are also more sated, so a bag lasts a lot longer than other brands I've fed them. The cats love the taste as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Olivia loves it! My cat, Olivia, developed a food allergy late in life and her liver enzymes skyrocketed. We cut out dry food entirely for awhile, and then slowly added it back in. ToW Rocky Mountain was the new choice because of the ingredients and was the flavor she prefers. It was an instant hit, and has helped Olivia eat better without throwing up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally solid stools!!! When we adopted our kitten Cinderella, she had been having horrible diarrhea even at the shelter. I had tried many foods & nothing worked until I found this formula. She has had solid stools ever since & is so much happier! Her coat is so soft & shiny! Thank you TOTW!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally my cat isn't chewing her fur!! It's only been a few weeks and already we see the difference in coat. One of our females has been biting at her skin for a year and although we tried everything, it was a change to Taste of the Wild Trout and Smoked Salmon that made the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love this! I started out this food after I won some samples from a contest. My cats love it so I went ahead to buy the bigger packs from Petexpo. They sometimes turn their nose away from some expensive dry food. Surprisingly, they immediately indulge in the food when I added this to their meal. Yay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love it We originally purchased Taste of the Wild Canyon River Blend for overweight Siamese, but our new cat loves it as well. The old food had way too many fillers. We decided grain free was the way to go and I’m so glad we did, it has helped our Siamese lose some of his excess weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trials over at last My cat started having severe food allergies when she was about three and I struggled to find the right food for her until she was nearly seven. I nearly had her put asleep because the extent of her sores was so bad her entire back was covered in scabs. I finally found and used Purina sensitive systems until they changed their recipe without any notice or indication(while still advertising it hasn't fun changed). My cat began pulling out her hair then making huge, awful sores on her back and legs again. It took me a long time to realize her food was changed and another couple months of different foods before I found TotW. So many brands list that they have no chicken or chicken meal in their food yet still have it in their ingredients as the second or third one. I tried several big brands (Hills, Blue Buffalo, Purina, ect) that claimed they were good for cats with allergies only to have to return them almost immediately. TotW was the only food in my local pet store that both listed being chicken free and actually was in the ingredients. When I opened the bag and it smelled like fish sticks, I felt relieved. My cat has only been on it for a little over a week and her spots are healing and her fur is coming back. She's been more vocal and energetic. I'm just so happy to see her back to normal. I have a neurocardic condition and she's my best support in the world. I couldn't bare to lose her. Thank you so much for honest packaging. You saved my cat and I'll always be grateful.

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 the shelf life of dry food after it's been opened? I keep it in the original bag and then put that inside a plastic bin with a lid.

Asked by: Taelor
Hello, Taelor! We guarantee the food will stay fresh until the “Best By” date that is stamped on the bag. On our 14 and 28-pound bags, the Best By date can be found on the back of the bag. On our 5-pound bags, the Best By date can be found on the side gusset of the bag. As for your storing method - we approve! The recommended storage method is to keep the food in its original packaging, in order to keep vital information handy in case you have a problem, emergency or question for the manufacturer. You may store the entire bag in a closed container as well. Food should be kept in a cool, dry location as excess heat or moisture may cause the nutrients to break down. If you have any additional questions, please contact us by visiting our website Thank you for choosing TOTW!
