Canned Food- Connoisseur
|Purred: Sat Apr 7, '12 12:55pm PST |
|So I went out yesterday and bought my oldest and pickiest cat a few different kinds of canned food. I tried him on four high quality foods before that, but he has no interest in them. He used to live with my parents (when I lived with them too, brought him when I moved out) and they used to feed him canned foods like Friskies and Fancy Feast, so I figure he got used to those and didn't want the high quality ones.
I bought brands like Blue Buffalo, Halo, Innova and Wellness for him, as I hadn't tried him on those yet. I fed him the Wellness food today and he LOVED it. I was pleasantly surprised. It seems really healthy, but I'm not sure if he would lose weight on it. The vet wanted me to buy dry Royal Canin Calorie Control food from them because he weighed in at 16 lbs. there this week, but I know Royal Canin is crummy for dog food so I assume it's crummy for cat food too.
Anyway, the Wellness I fed him was the Wellness Healthy Indulgence wet food. It's grain free. These are the ingredients: Turkey Broth, Tuna, Turkey, Turkey Liver, Egg Whites, Potato Starch, Carrots, Pea Fiber, Sweet Potatoes, Squash, Zucchini, Natural Flavor, Calcium Carbonate, Guar Gum, Sodium Phosphate, Cranberries, Blueberries, Flaxseed, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Carbonate, Taurine, Iron Proteinate, Beta-Carotene, Zinc Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Choline Chloride, Cobalt Proteinate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Copper Proteinate, Folic Acid, Manganese Proteinate, Niacin, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Sodium Selenite, Vitamin D-3 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin B-12 Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Biotin.
It seems very healthy to me and I know Wellness is very high quality food, but I've tried a lot to get this one to lose weight and not seen much of a result, so I thought I'd check with you guys instead of assuming it will work and not work. Also, would I have to feed him ALL canned food, or is there a certain amount of dry I can still feed him? Wet food is expensive and cost is an issue as I'm disabled so I don't have much money, but if I have to feed him all canned food for his health, I will sacrifice the money.
