Guide Review - Wellness Super5Mix for Adult Cats

Although Old Mother Hubbard first created dog biscuits in 1926, its Wellness Cat Food line is in its infancy; first introduced in 2000. Wellness took off with a bang, though, and was judged "Favorite Food of the Year 2000" by The Whole Cat Journal. Wellness claims to use human grade meats in its recipe, although this description has not yet legally been defined. Other interesting ingredients, including sweet potatoes, carrots, sweet peas, blueberries, and apples, blend for a yummy meal for most discerning cats. Unfortunately, Old Mother Hubbard is no longer distributing to online stores, but Wellness is available in most large pet supplies stores.

Vet Says High Potential For Urinary Issues, Member suejin212

At a recent vet visit, my two five-yr old cats got a clean bill of health. But when the vet heard that I was feeding them both Wellness canned and dry food, he urged me to switch dry foods. He said that he saw a lot of urinary issues come through due to Wellness. Although he said the canned food was fine. So I'll be looking for another brand of dry food.
