    With owning several cats of all ages I have tried so many veterinary diet foods in the past for one reason or another. Not one of them did they like until now. I dread it when the vet suggest a certain vet food because I know they will end up not eating it. Well not with this food. My cat loved it. It really helped with his condition which was chronic diarrhea. Although it is for diabetic cats my vets suggested it after attending a seminar on the subject. My cat had lost so much weight and was looking awful. After a couple of weeks on this food he gained a whole lb. and his stool hardened up and his fur got soft again. Will continue to purchase it.

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

    Our now 15 year old cat was diagnosed with diabetes last year. Since he has been on the DM diet he has maintained his blood sugar and done GREAT! I'm so glad our vet prescribed it. It is pricey, but having a pet this long is like having another child!...so you do what you have to do!! Ordering is easy and Pet Firect is very efficient. Thanks!

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

    This food has been helpful, in conjunction with twice daily insulin, in keeping our cat's blood glucose levels under control. He has a preference for dry food, and the store bought bag was too high in carbs for his little body. DM is pricey, but worth it for kitty's health!

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

      One of my three girls is borderline diabetic. I was told to feed her this dry food by my vet. Her blood sugar has stabilized, which is fantastic. I have two other cats who have no issues with blood sugar, but they eat it, too, and one of them is extremely picky, and allergic to many artificial colors. This doesn't bother her sensitive stomach at all. I am very pleased. It isn't cheap, but it is cheaper than insulin shots!

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

      One of my cats was diagnosed with diabetes about two years ago at the age of only 9. My veterinarian (who is wonderful) helped me enormously with my learning curve in dealing with blood glucose readings, insulin injections and more. He also prescribed Purina DM. I was skeptical.... because frankly, Charlie is one fussy cat. But he loved this food and two years later he still does. In addition, we have two other (non-diabetic) cats who enjoy it as well and all are thriving. They get other food daily too, of course, most especially high quality, high protein canned food. But the Purina DM is their dry food in their bowls every day. Charlie is healthy and thriving and deals well with his daily injections and he LOVES his food!
