Today on Cat In The Fridge, we have our very first giveaway! We were approached by Clear Conscience Pet, a company founded in 2010 that focuses on making pet treats from free-range, grass-fed, or organically-raised sources, to review their SuperGravy product. Since it meets mom FOD’s standards of what she feeds to us, we had them ship over a sample for our panel to review. For full disclosure, we were given one 4.5 oz bag of SuperGravy, 6 sample sticks of their Sliders dog treats, and the agreement to allow us a giveaway on our site. With that said, let’s talk about the product!
SuperGravy is a food topper meal supplement that’s meant to make your pets’ food a little tastier, more palatable, and more nutritious. The maker suggests that one use it for picky eaters, “appetites depressed by illness or older age,” pets that are reluctant to eat their prescription diets, or for healthy pets who happen to like the flavor. It can be sprinkled on food directly and then mixed with water, or made into a gravy separately and poured over the food. We chose the latter method.
We began by scooping out one scoop of the powder (scoop included) and putting it into a small bowl.
We mixed it with 2 scoops of warm water and stirred. The result was a brown gravy that we then poured over our normal food.
The directions say we should “STIR VIGOROUSLY” in capital letters, which makes sense because the result was a bit grainy and chunky when we stirred normally with a spoon. Despite the somewhat grainy texture, we decided to give it a go for our readers. Our results were as follows:
Rocky, age 14, tabby, usually eats anything but has an extremely sensitive stomach
Niles, age 13, black cat, picky eater, eats sparingly
Mrs. Peabody, age 6, tortie, eats anything but has a sensitive stomach
Crepes (me), age 2, tabby, eats anything
Dixie, age 7, dog, oddly picky for a dog. Often refuses her food.
Results: Out of five tasters, 100% of the tasters accepted the food. 0% of our tasters experienced any digestive upset. 20% of our tasters (dog) licked the gravy out of the bowl first then ate the food. Therefore, the gravy was a hit! Here’s what it’s made from:
Ingredients: Bison liver, organic beef liver, beef liver, organic beef heart, beef heart, cold milled chia seed, organic beef kidney, beef kidney, dried organic spinach, dried organic pumpkin, dried organic carrot, ascorbic acid (natural preservative and source of vitamin C)
Conclusion: We really liked the SuperGravy. The ingredients are all natural with no extra nonsense in the product. Mom FOD would like to see a bit more of just the organic ingredients without the need for the non-organic organ meats, but overall, SuperGravy seems to be a high-quality product.
