Complete Health Nutrition For Your Cat #WellnessPetFood

Is there anything more overwhelming than browsing the food aisles of a pet store? So many choices. So many ingredients. So many labels. At times I find myself wondering if there really even is any difference between the various brands.

Today I'm here to tell you about the Wellness Difference.

A pioneer in holistic nutrition, for over a decade Wellness has sought new ways to help pets thrive, educate people about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and support animal wellness programs. The Wellness Difference is about being more than natural. And it’s not about what is left out—all recipes are free from corn, soy and wheat, as well as artificial colors and flavors. True Wellness is about what they put in—a small number of simple, pure, authentic ingredients. They believe this is the way to make superior food for our animals.

My girls have long been fans of Wellness and their wide variety of formulas. Tara loved their Complete Health Wet Cat Recipes and Healthy Indulgence Cat Pouches. Truffles recently discovered their new Kittles treats and has been obsessed every since! So when a package showed up on our doorstep with still more Wellness products for her to try, she was pretty much beside herself with excitement!

First up was their NEW Divine Duos wet food. A breakthrough in the world of natural wet cat food, Wellness® Divine Duos™ combines two tasty layers in one cup! With a layer of savory pâté topped with a second layer of tender cuts in gravy, Divine Duos elevates the experience of everyday meals, while also promoting hydration, which is an important part to their overall health. Delicious poultry, seafood and meat combinations are paired with hearty veggies for each of the six tasty varieties:

* Chicken Pate & Diced Duck Recipe
* Chicken Pate & Diced Turkey Recipe
* Chicken Pate & Diced Salmon Recipe
* Beef Pate & Diced Chicken Liver Recipe
* Tilapia Pate & Diced Ahi Tuna Recipe
* Tuna Pate & Diced Salmon Recipe

Truffles tried the Chicken Pate & Diced Duck recipe because her stomach is very sensitive to fish. Since she is typically fed pate-style food only, the chicken pate half was her favorite. She's never been given anything with gravy in it so she pretty much ate around the tender cuts in gravy portion. (I get the biggest kick out of watching her eat a bowl of food, carefully picking out the parts she likes and leaving behind the parts she doesn't.)

Usually when you think of gravy in cat food you think of wheat gluten and other yucky stuff, but since Wellness is grain-free this is gravy that I am more than comfortable with Truffles enjoying. I'll definitely be trying some of the other flavors as well!

Next up was their Indoor Health Deboned Chicken & Chicken Meal Recipe dry formula, a well-rounded, solution-focused diet of meats, grains and fruits for cats that live indoors. My personal preference is to feed kibble as a treat only, but with ingredients such as omega fatty acids, ground flaxseed and added Vitamin E for less shedding and a healthy skin and coat, weight management ingredients to support a less active, indoor lifestyle, Glucosamine & Chondroitin for healthy hips and joints, and specific amounts of nutrients for cats that lounge more, groom often and live indoors, this is a dry food that I feel very good about. And Truffles is absolutely crazy about it, too!

Wellness provides complete nutrition for cats with their Complete Health dry food recipes and their Divine Duos wet recipes from the inside out. Our pets provide us unconditional love, and providing uncompromising nutrition is one way we can do the same for them.

They do have good healthy food. M tried some on me once and I walked away from it.

I liked mine and I’m glad Truffles like hers. I’m just the opposite. I don’t eat pate so TW has to stir it up for me.

Moosey gets Wellness minced chicken, but he's *very* picky. We hesitate to even try switching formulas on him! :-/

Wellness is a great cat food brand! Cinco and Manna love it too. It is good to see cat food brands stepping up and bringing real nutrition to our cats. :)

We eat Wellness when we aren't eating raw. Love their chicken and turkey canned foods. Never tried the Duos - we'll have to check it out! Glad you enjoyed, Truffles :)

Wellness is new to us, but I'm so glad we found it. Last time I tried to switch cat foods I was just totally confused.
Sam eats around the tender cuts too! She ate the pate and the gravy, but left the cuts, which I just gave to our other cat Conrad and he ate them.

One of my favorite vets that I used to work with, and still see for my own pets always loved Wellness foods. I had never personally tried anything from them until recently though. Great review Truffles! Looking cute as usual!
