Just checking to see if any of you have tried Precise Flaked Pork canned food? No too many that foods with pork in them for cats.

Wow - never even heard of that - but I might have to try it. Cheezle actually LOVES pork chops. It's one of the few people foods he will beg for... Where do you get it?

I thought I read somewhere that pork muscle meat is an allergen to many cats thinking It's certainly not something a cat in the wild would eat shrug There are lots of foods out there that do contain pork liver, though. "By products" may include pork in some form as well.

Here's a thread that has a little info about why there are few, if any, pork canned foods: http://felinediabetes.com/FDMB//viewtopic.php?p=567781&sid=3b0d6247b3eaf8bf5844516711f29b1b

I am a pet nutritionist that works for MARS Petcare. Pork is a digestible protein for pets and while there may be a small proportion of pets with allergies to pork, it is not one of the most common ones.

The reason pork isn't used as much as some of the other proteins is simple. It's that the ingredient isn't as available as some of the other animal proteins. There just isn't enough of a supply.

Evanger's makes a pork canned food: http://www.evangersdogfood.com/?p=30107 It is NOT a complete diet, though. It's one of those feed-alongside-dry-food or give as treat foods shrug

Today, I stopped at another pet food store, not the big box stores. There on the shelf was the Precise flaked pork canned cat food. I grabbed a can and the chicken one too. Even if it is flaked, we will try it. I have my KitchenAid stick blender ready to puree it. I do have to say it was cheaper than the current prices of Nature's Variety. That clay thing does not make me want to give it to my cats. But I may pick up a can when I can find it too.

This made my day.snoopy
