Both my cat and dog have been on Taste of the Wild for a few years now, ever since my cat underwent surgery for FLUTD (which, despite what my vet tells me, I'm convinced is a result of the Science Diet garbage she had me feeding him.) As anti-pet store as I am, I live in a pretty small area so the only places I have for access to anything pet related are Pets Unlimited (otherwise known as PJ's Pets in other parts of Canada,) and the newly opened PetSmart. Both stores only have one food I really like, TOTW at Pets Unlimited, and Blue Wilderness at PetSmart.
My main reason for wanting to switch is that Pets Unlimited has been very unreliable as of late. This is the second time that they've had none of the cat food in stock. I actually ordered two bags during a sale they were having three weeks ago (at which point they were out of stock), and when I went back to find out why I still hadn't hear of them, only to find out that they only placed their order last week. Unacceptable. I was 100% completely out of cat food, so I ended up hopping over to the PetSmart to try some Blue Wilderness. Not ideal, since I only have what was left of his breakfast to use to transfer over, but it's all I can do.
At this point, I'm so sick of that store that I might keep him on the Wilderness permanently, as well as switch Bear over to it.
So my question is, would one food be considered better than the other? Is there any reason I should try to stick with the TOTW? Anyone else feed Wilderness? The bags are smaller and more expensive than the TOTW bags, but I don't think I'd need to feed as much of it (especially with weight loss in mind for Bear,) and honestly, I'd pay the extra cost just to not have to deal with Pets Unlimited anymore.
So far, Snowy seems to love it, which is a big plus. The back of the bag also talks about adding warm water as another serving option - has anyone tried it with Wilderness? Neither Bear nor Snowy drink as much water as I would like, especially with Snowy's urinary tract issues, so it might be a nice way to get more water into them both.
