I admit to being slightly sceptical at first about buying this product, as someone had given it a 1-star review. That, and I hadn't actually heard of Advance before. But, the ingredients looked decent enough, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Also, admittedly, I was a little curious as to why someone thought it was SO bad, that it wasn't worthy of anything more than one star.
A little background info - I have two stage 2 seniors at home, a 12 & a 16 year old. The younger one has some digestive problems, so he really needs some highly palatable, good quality chow. If it's not great, he'll instinctively know, and just won't eat it. I figured he was the perfect puss to experiment on.
Much to my surprise, both kitties went straight for it as soon as I served this up to them. Not only do they like this, they both LOVE it. Evidently, the aroma and taste must be quite appealing to them. It seems to be pretty digestible as well - the younger one had no issues eating it, and nothing came back up again. Within a few hours, their plate was totally empty!
Over the course of the years, they've tried most every type of wet food from ALDI cans to Science Diet to Royal Canin... etc. I won't say that this was definitely the best wet food they've ever had, but it's certainly up there with the top 5 or so. It's lovely to see them both so eager to chow down on their dinner, without any later digestive issues. We've tried much more expensive & well known brands of senior food in the past, with far less success.
I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this further, and can only imagine that the previous customer left their 1-star review by mistake.
