Written: Mar 23, 2011
a Very Helpful Review
by the Epinions community
Pros:Fairly inexpensive & healthy. Dye free, less ash
Cons:The unnecessary salt & organ meats by products
The Bottom Line: It does not have to be a staple, healthy though if chosen as. Real juices, not too messy in elimination, smells great. Fairly inexpensive.
This review is on another filet version, Friskies Prime Filets Chicken and Tuna Dinner in Gravy Canned Cat Food which the 3 furried babies tolerate maybe three times a year, although it is purchased more often. It is a surf and turf kind of foodie because they can enjoy chunks of filet chicken and filet tuna. The gravy is thick and the the bites are choice cuts.
You have to work around their finicky natures because heck with money tight and you got to eat right, they should not have to sacrifice but at least approach this stuff with common sense. Its food and it is semi-nutritious, so there !
On with the review . . .
|| APPEARANCE ||
Bathed in a delicate not heavy gravy, there are several filet pieces in small, medium and large chunks awaiting a cat's whisker to sniff out and grab so he or she can gobble it up. The can is round.
|| ALLERGIES ||
If any do exist check with your vet before adding this variety to the diet.
|| COST ||
One single can of Purina Friskies Chicken & Tuna Dinner in Gravy Prime Filets is roughly .30 cents for 5.5 ounces or 156 grams; while a case ran us about $8.oo and has lasted us for about three months now. I found them a bit more for .50 cents per can. When you get the coupon for this cat food, stock up ! Why you ask ? Because every store DOES NOT carry this particular filet feast.
|| HEALTHY HISTORY ||
It does deliver energy for purring, animal acrobatics and funny faces are genuine Kodak moments when they finish licking the last morsels of this stuff UNLESS they just slurp up the gravy and leave meat and fish bites behind. Purina Friskies Chicken & Tuna Dinner in Gravy Prime Filets is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by Association of American Feed Control Officials.
Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for growth of kittens and maintenance of adult cats“--Feeding instructions state feeding each cat ¾ to 1 ounce per pound of cat daily. So if your cat is 10lbs you should be feeding him roughly 2 cans of this or two and a half if he is hungry.

|| Crude Analysis/ NUTRITION INFO ||
There is in Friskies Prime Filets Chicken and Tuna Dinner in Gravy Canned Cat Food the minimum amount of crude protein 10% , minimum crude fat 5%, the maximum crude fiber 1.0%, maximum moisture content 78.0%, maximum level of ash 3.0%, and minimum taurine level 0.05% are met and approved by this AAFCO. With the after-math once this is served, the looks and licks of paws and face and whiskers, genuinely means TASTY & satisfying !
|| SMELL ||
Nearly like the real things Purina Friskies Chicken & Tuna Dinner in Gravy Prime Filets is nothing like yucky cereal fillers or pure organ meat; there is realness because of the texture, smell and obvious taste. There is plenty of gravy-laden dark and white chicken meat with the darker tuna meat instead of red tuna flesh.
|| USES ||
It is obvious its usage is to assuage hunger if nothing more than curiosity about what meat and fish chunks together would be like. Your feline radar is the key here for Friskies Prime Filets Chicken and Tuna Dinner in Gravy Canned Cat Food, if ears go up when the lid which is a very easy-pull away from you lid that can cut as it is quite sharp, is tweaked, they come running.
|| WARNINGS ||
Try not to over-feed as this is a much whetter brand and the lesser ash can be a bit messy. Cats with sensitive teeth may not be able to chew so break up the larger chunks.
|| WHERE TO BUY ||
In your most of your grocery aisles where pet food is plentiful you will find plenty of this. For some reason the cost and effectiveness for promoting a shiny coat, less hairball frequency, and no barfo-kitty incidents, Friskies Prime Filets Chicken and Tuna Dinner in Gravy Canned Cat Food sells fast.
|| VERDICT ||
I like that there are dozens of varieties to choose from between ‘shredded’, this ’filets’ &’classic pate’ style so there can be variety. As diet does not necessarily change, taste certainly does. The same kind over and over and is just boring.
Overall, Friskies Prime Filets Chicken and Tuna Dinner in Gravy Canned Cat Food once eaten, its container is unfortunately not bio-degradable but it might be given to a place that recycles treated aluminum. I do appreciate that my babies can have a non-cereal filler type of real meat food despite the organ cuts. It will continue to keep them healthy and you not so broke !
Thank you for reading
And Enjoy !
