Mikey and Molly – Ziwi Peak forever

I’m so grateful to have found ZP for my two cats, both under 3 years of age. They were both eating grain free food since they were adopted (at about 2.5 months and rescued from a hoarding house – yikes) but at about 1.5 years old presented symptoms of chicken, turkey and fish allergies (although I never fed them much of the latter). Long story short: Mikey presented symptoms of feline herpes about one year ago. His opthamologist prescribed a range of eye medications – nothing worked, only lysine. Still, he has had long flare ups – to the extent that the photo displayed of him here is from 2011, I haven’t been able to photograph him b/c of his eyes. That will soon change as his eyes are opening up, we are halfway there, he has the prettiest green eyes …
I had read that feline herpes kitties do best on low starch / carb diets – in fact, cats in general have little to no need for grains or vegetables. ZP is so low carb and low starch, after more than a month on the lamb and venison (with some air dried lamb on the side), Mikey’s eyes are actually improving, along with giving him lysine daily. They both have more energy. Molly especially loves the air dried raw lamb which I give after I make sure she has had enough of her canned food. This is such an exceptional company – free range animals, hormone / antibiotic free and with BPA cans to boot – who could ask for more?!
I work for a competitor premium pet food company and yet ZP does somersaults over this company and every other premium food company I’m familiar with (and I know them ALL – just about).
I’d work for ZP in a nanosecond … ZP provides an exceptional product, species appropriate in every way; I have no qualms paying what I pay for this product, despite my underemployment and poor economic situation. I’ve resolved this food issue with my kitties, we thank you.
