I just wanted to warn all to be careful about buying the Science Diet
Advanced Protection pet food to get the $9 rebate (free after). Hill's Pet
Nutrition sent me my rebate back saying they had to return my submission
because the incorrect UPC proof of purchase symbol(s) was submitted. And
it had all these conditions stated on it afterwards.

$9 for 3.5 lb bag of cat food. If I didn't love my cat, I would go down
there and kick their butts myself for weaseling out of the rebate.

I'm normally pretty good about getting my rebates. There was only 1 UPC on the bag, and it's already discarded. That should've raised a flag when I read how many conditions were on the rebate coupon.

Richo, yeah it is a shame, but not uncommon at all. My Asim and Isha once loved SD, until about a month later they refused to eat it any longer, lol.

This SD advanced formula includes Chicken Liver, and added Salt to improve the flavor of this food, encouraging cats to like it. Companies such as this, using additives to encourage a pet to eat their product is also very common. And in turn, owners will think that their cat loves said food!
A bit in the mind set of, if my cat eats it, it must be good for them.

I guess we're getting a little off topic here, so let me say sorry about the rebate first...and then say we really like Nutro here. Just look at the ingredients on your food. If it reads like a bag of Fritos, maybe you should get something else! :wink:

Our cats have stopped puking, have firmer poop, and are not stinky anymore, thanks to Nutro (I used to call Frodo "Old Possum" due to the stink--not anymore! :lol: )
