Khacky has been diabetic for 7 years, and until recently was on the dry DM variety. An intestinal issue caused me to have to switch, and he is doing very well on the canned food which he loves.

I ordered DM thinking I was buying the cans of solid food I always get but, received this new version which is chunks of meat in some sort of unnatural gravy made from who knows what! A good portion of the weight is nothing but this sauce/gravy. Good for Purina's profit margin but not healthy for our cats. FAT CATS AND DIABETIC CAT'S DON'T NEED GRAVY! THEY NEED MEAT!!!! I don't appreciate PetFoodDirect's stealthing this inferior over priced food to me.

    Comments about Purina Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Feline Formula Canned Cat Food:

    Our cat was recently diagonosed with diabetes. We started her off on the Purina DM pate, but she got bored with the food pretty quickly. Prior to the DM she enjoyed Fancy Feast grilled, so we switched her to the savory selects and have had her on this for several weeks. She seems to like this much better and she rarely doesn't eat now. Sometimes she will struggle with the size of the morsels, so I will cut them with a fork to make this a little easier for her to eat. I'm very happy we have this option.

      Comments about Purina Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Feline Formula Canned Cat Food:

      I have three fairly picky cat eaters and they all love their dry food. But when my Winston came down as a diabetic, I had to make some quick changes. One of the first things I did was try to find some grain-free dry food and more importantly some wet food. I check out reviews and products pretty thoroughly and after some research, I opted to try this. They love this food, especially my diabetic cat, which is most important. I tried about four different brands (easily accessible) of wet food, but this is the one they like the best. If they don't eat all of it, they come back and finish it before the next feeding. This has never happened with other brands of wet food.
      I suggest giving it a try. When you love your pets, you'll go to the extra steps to find food that's not only better for them, but also they like.

      This food was prescribed by my vet for my insulin-dependent 11 year old cat. She loves the food, and eats the right amounts. Her blood sugars are now well-controlled.

        the product was used for my poor over weight cat who I rescued last year from being in a bad fight with another male.
        he just gained weight like crazy the vet recommended this food and he loves it I didn't know he could meow until now so every time we go to the fridge chunky is there waiting and meowing.... plus he has lost two pounds!
