I have fed my three dogs kirkland brand lamb and rice for about four years now and my cat the kirland brand cat food for a year with no issues. I switched from Natures choice as it was less food for double the price. I tried recently to switch my dogs to a presidents choice higher end brand as I live 4 hours away from a costco store and almost immediately they got violent diarrhea from it. Put them back on Kirland brand Lamb and Rice formula and their belly’s were happy again. Their stools are firm and they too are happy. One is a 9 year old black Lab/husky cross, one is a 5year old peekapoo, and the other is a 13 year old small/med bread we inherited. So I will keep my furry babies on this food and trust costco will continue to live up to their reputation of good quality and will pull it off the shelves if it truly is not a quality food they can trust and/or that is indeed causing death or sickness to the pets consuming it! Unless I see drastic changes in my animals we will continue with Kirkland. Hope this helps someone out there struggling with what to do:)
I have been wondering if the formula has changed. It has a LOT of rice. This is high carbs, makes cats fat and high carbs can cause diabetes. I have been feeding this Kirkland cat food for years, but something is different, Cats scratching a lot. The Healthy Weight is even higher in carbs. Too many carbs!! I love the price, but I am going to have to change foods.

I have 4 cats. I was originally feeding them Pro-Plan chicken, but switched to Kirkland Chicken two weeks ago. The cats stopped hacking up and slowed their dry food intake. I think the product might be better for the cats since they don't have a lot of grains in it like the Pro-Plan. I really like the price difference. Pro-plan is about $35 for 16lbs, and Kirkland is about $18.00 for 25lbs. The cats don't seem to notice a difference and they seem more active. They don't act like they are starving in the morning for the canned food either. 5*. Dry food is the main staple for my cats. I load up a 5lb hopper on an auto feeder every couple of weeks. The cats have had Science Diet, Pro-Plan, Iams, and now Kirkland and I'm pretty happy that the cats are happy with Kirkland.Dog Food Advisor gives this food a pretty high rating based on ingredients. I looked into a lot of different foods before selecting Kirkland foods for our pets. The fact that it’s made in the US was also a deciding factor. The Kirkland brand ingredients are superior to those in many ‘premium’ high priced grocery store brands and compared favorably to many of the premium brands sold at our local feed store. Price isn’t a good indicator of good food. Overall, this cat food scored 76 out of 100 on Viewpoints, which does put this brand slightly below average — although, from my personal experience with Kirkland products, I’ve always found this brand to be a good value for the price range, and there are plenty of Viewpoints contributors that share my sentiment.I buy my dog food 40 pounds at a time, so I figured Costco was the best place to hit. There were four different types of Kirkland, which is Costcos house brand of dog food. All the bags, including the cat food, had Fish Meal in the ingredients. I wasnt happy about this at all because the price was very good and the rest of the ingredients were much better as well.
