|I have spent years researching "the best" cat food and came to this conclusion: all dry food is basically the same, and its all junk. At this point many will stop reading but i ask for you to look into it for yourself. But, set aside anything that is funded by a petfood company, and try not to get lost into the fads. I have an entire bookcase on cats, including vet textbooks. I also studyed feline nutrition with a vet, and read many books on the subject in the college library. i worked as a vet assistant, and have done rescue for over 6 years. Trust me, i have looked into this matter extensively.I hope to encourage people to do that same. I use to believe in dry food because vets said i should. I think differently now. My cats are both 8 years old and are in super health.
I almost lost my cat to diet dry food. It made her stool hard, twisted up her colon, and i spent the next year trying to save her life. It cost me 3 grand and much heartache. This was the final push to convince me to switch to canned and then from there i moved on to making my own all meat food. How, do you ask, did diet dry cause all this? by putting wood fiber in the food to cut back on calories. Cats cannot digest this well. It isnt food, after all!
I know that all meat homemade food can be super expensive, so i would encourage you to buy Friskies pate style. do not get chunks, slices, special diet, ect. JUST pate. Turkey and giblets pate, ocean fish pate, chicken pate, ect. This food is cheep, and is one of the only catfoods that have mostly meat in it. Some do have small amounts of rice, which in my option, is the best grain if you have to do grain. Avoid potatoes and other starches. those are NOT good for cats.
Feel free to compare labels on every style, brand and type of canned catfood. you will see that not all the expensive ones are better.
