    Wish there was a way to get some sample cans to try. I never buy a case until I know if they like it or not. I haven’t seen this food in any retail stores near me.
    Also, I don’t buy canned food in any size larger than 5.5 oz. because my understanding is that cans larger than that are not BPA free. Asking if the cans have a BPA-free lining is a good idea when trying a new food. (Bad for us humans too in our canned food.)
    So many considerations for feeding a healthy diet to our Raggies!

    Banging my head against the table.

    When I was researching non-carrageenan foods, Lotus was one of the foods I ran across. William and Izzy could tolerate it; William eats everything from the best and worst of canned cat foods to cardboard to shower curtains without any digestive upsets.

    But when I looked at the ingredients, I knew that Jolie would vomit and/or have diarrhea immediately. She just can’t handle fruits and veggies, even if I sneak them in in small amounts.

    So, the search continues for high fat/low carb foods without carageenan.

    Hello Everyone!

    Just wanted to let you know that I contacted Lotus as previously advised by Jenny for some trial cans for my Noah. He is a picky eater, but this food looks like something he might enjoy, besides love it doesn’t include Carrageenan, Guar Guam, and Xanthan Guam.

    Well, I received a response the next working day by one of their customer service team members, and they were kind enough to ask me for my mail address and will be sending over some sample cans. This is a new variety and it is not offered in singles or mix packages to try out first before spending almost $40.

    Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you because not all companies offer this and their customer service so far has been excellent.

    Thanks again Jenny!
