Great health

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had my cat, with mega-colon, on this food from the beginning of production. It has kept him going for 6 years. It is so great with their digestion I have put all 13 cats on it. It really helps with my older cats that were having problems pooping. All of my cats like the taste of it.
