Wellness is Good!!!
NO RECALL.

misleading if people are just reading title and not the thread...
Yes, good idea to lock it!

All I know is that after reading a lot on this forum I was able to switch my girl from fancy feast to Wellness. I feel a lot better that she is not getting junk food.

Default Wellness cause vomiting and weightloss

Wellness for Indoor Cats caused my 12 year old orange tabby to vomit 3x per week, lose weight and loose the 'healthy' glow he usually had. We had switched to Wellness about a month ago thinking organic was the way to go and started noticing these symptoms. Our vet advised us that Wellness may be causing these symptoms and had cause many of their other patients to be sick. We stopped immediately. Now he is on Science Diet Senior and already looks 100 times better and no vomiting! I heard some cats are okay on it and some aren't - and those who aren't may pay a heavy price. Wellness should be taken off the market. Why should people pay a high price for a 'healthy organic' food which may or may not harm their cat?

I am sorry your cat did not do well on Wellness. But....that does not mean it is not a excellent food and should be taken off the market. I have one cat who does not do well on a # of excellent foods....yet can stomach Wellness just fine. But it is all her, not the fault of the other foods.
There was never a recall on the Wellness and they are one of the highest rated foods on the market. I feed the Wellness Core to my 6, as well as 2 other highly rated foods.
I am glad your cat is doing better on the SD.

Hi guys, so Wellness does not cause any negative side affects for cats right? Just want to confirm. Is there any recent recall news, in 2010 or 2009 concerning Wellness cat food products?

Okay, this thing continues to pop up again and again...please, people, read the dates & read the entire thread before freaking out! There was no recall, the vet I was seeing at the time lied to me because they didn't want to take responsibility for the decline & eventual death of my cat...I had the product tested myself and everything came out clean and fine. Now I'm going to find a moderator to lock this thread since people keep dragging it back up without reading in its entirety or looking at the date. For what it's worth, I do feed all my animals Wellness again...after the whole scare I tried other brands, but none were as good as Wellness. I trust this food, and my animals all love it.
