We’d like this to be a funny cat food review, but diet is paramount to health and we take the health of our cats seriously.
If you want a wet food high in animal protein, make sure it doesn’t have vegetable protein fillers (anything hydrolyzed) or carbs (like barley, brewer’s rice). The reason is — you’re likely overpaying. Manufacturers like to pump up their products with fillers to cut down on costs.
When it comes to dry food, carb fillers are unavoidable because there’s nothing to keep the kibble together otherwise. But before buying dry food consider the fact that cats are pure carnivores. They don’t need grains or carbs in their diets to function normally. What’s more — carb fillers can cause digestive problems and sometimes even allergies. So, to solve this, opt for wet food or go with a quality dry food.
The best person to judge your cat’s needs is you, with your vet coming close second. You live with your cat and you know what it likes and dislikes, while your vet is trained to diagnose medical conditions and prescribe the proper diet.
