|Nadia, why do you not want your cat too much fish. My vet (a natural vet that does accupuncture and uses chinese herbs. Shes the best in northern CA) said that cats' natural food is fish and other non-hot meat (chicken, not beef or lamb) and some grains. I'm new to this group, but I noticed everyone seems to beware that grains are not part of a cats natural diet. When I compared the Boots and Barkley canned food to Fancy Feast, the following:
B&B's had less moisture (I think that's good, however the juice is clear), 2% more protein 13 % aguar gum, nd no grain. Yes, there are meat-by-products.
FF has meat broth 1st ingredient) and meat-by-products(also) wheat gluten and less protein 11%, corn starch and artificial stuff.
Does anyone else have any input??
FYI: here's what I found out about guar gum:
Guar gum, because it is a water-soluble fiber, can have a laxative effect on many who consume it. Although it can help promote a healthy colon and those suffering from constipation or someone who is looking to regulate their bowel movements, it can become an uncomfortable side effect from consuming a product containing guar gum.
Because of its laxative effect, guar gum was once used in many diet and weight-loss over-the-counter products. However, due to significant intestinal distress and dangerous blockages, guar gum is no longer approved for use in these products. Guar gum also absorbs liquid creating the feeling of being full which can be good for losing weight, but can also be a risky strain on the digestive system.
My husband thinks Fancy Feast is good food for my cats. He's wrong. So, when I feed them, they get a little higher quality food.
