The manufacturing countries are not engaged in its sale. There is still minus – rather high cost. At such price it is possible to get some cheap holistik.

It is important to know:
Darina: "Decided to try a new forage, Mealfeel for kittens bought the sphinx. A smell teach differs in nothing from a smell of other forages which are on sale in supermarkets. This forage not from supermarket, but its structure not really far left them. The only plus – contains in a stern of Mealfeel more meat ingredients. The price for such quality – too high".
Lina: "I cannot tell anything bad about a forage Mealfeel. It is on sale only in shop "4 paws", there I also bought it. It is possible to refer lack of cereals in structure to pluses of a forage. There are in it such useful ingredients as the flax seed which is responsible for the correct digestion. Pleased lack of artificial additives: amplifiers of taste, preservatives and dyes. But my cats for some reason eat it without special enthusiasm".
Semyon: "I took a cat from the street already adult, he broke digestion. The pet-shop advised me a new forage Mealfeel for cats with sensitive digestion. Yes, the structure of Mealfeel surpasses structure of forages of economy class and the European production cannot but please. But, I did not notice noticeable improvement at the Barsik yet. Most likely, forage not too dietary".
Stepan Petrovsky, veterinarian: "A usual nutritious forage with the good power value and high saturability. It is balanced, contains all necessary minerals and vitamins B the quantity satisfying biological needs of an animal. Easily is digested, it is well acquired. Is suitable for daily food of the cats leading a house life. Special natural additives significantly reduce a smell of cat's excrement. Taurine well affects sight of cats and their wool. The molt passes in due time, wool drops out within norm. From shortcomings – overestimated positioning of a forage, desire of producers is better to present it, than it is actually".whether
So, we will sum up: the forage is new, rather qualitative, consumer comments on him are not enough, structure average, but it is better, than at forages of the class "house-keeper". We did not find extremely negative reviews in the Internet – responses of veterinarians reserved. Therefore at us no, the reasons not to recommend this brand. We leave the final decision to you. Try, watch reaction of the pet to a forage and draw the conclusions – to give or not to give.
