Classic Chicken Feast

 

Ingredients

Chicken, poultry broth, liver, meat by-products, fish, artificial and natural flavors, tricalcium phosphate, guar gum, added color, salt, MINERALS [potassium chloride, magnesium sulfate, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, copper sulfate, manganese sulfate, potassium iodide], taurine, VITAMINS [thiamine mononitrate (Vitamin B-1), Vitamin E supplement, niacin (Vitamin B-3), calcium pantothenate (Vitamin B-5), Vitamin A supplement, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (Vitamin K), pyridoxine hydrochloride (Vitamin B-6), riboflavin supplement (Vitamin B-2), Vitamin B-12 supplement, biotin (Vitamin B-7), folic acid (Vitamin B-9), Vitamin D-3 supplement], sodium nitrite (to promote color retention).

First 5 ingredients

Chicken – Meat, skin, and bone of chicken. About 70% moisture therefore is always seen near the top of ingredients lists. After cooking, the chicken loses most of its moisture as well as protein. A common ingredient found in cat food.

Poultry Broth - Broth has added nutrients compared to water. This broth is made from poultry. Poultry is a vague term, but usually it means chicken, turkey, duck, or geese.

Liver – An organ meat that is packed full of nutrients. Rich in Vitamin A. A good quality ingredient, yet intake has to be monitored. A vague term as we don't know the source of the liver.

Meat By-Products – By-products from a vague source. 'Meat' doesn't indicate where the by-products originate.

Fish – This is the most vague term used for this ingredient. We have no idea what species of fish was used, or even what family this fish belongs to.

Ingredients to Point Out

Meat – The term ‘meat’ can mean anything. Safe ingredients will name the source. Example, chicken meal vs meat meal. The first ingredient you know is coming from chicken. The second one, you have no idea. It could actually be cats and dogs. Some pet food manufacturers actually used to use euthanized pets for meat meal. This practice is not popular anymore because people found out what ‘meat’ meant. This was just an example of what ‘meat’ can mean.

By-Products – The clean parts of named animal other than the actual meat. This can include the brain, bone, blood, kidneys, clean intestines, clean stomach, and lungs. Basically anything from the slaughtered animal except the hair, horns, teeth, and hoofs.

Fish/Seafood - Fish have elevated levels of mercury. Feeding a cat fish every now and then is okay. Long term exposure to fish will cause health problems. Also, the majority of the time fish used for pet food is rank and of poor quality. Unless otherwise stated by the company as 'food fit for human consumption'. This applies to seafood as well.

Artifical Flavoring – Man-made chemicals that are usually sprayed onto the food to entice the cat to eat it.

Guar Gum - A less harmful thickening agent used in cat food. Still, interferes with protein absorption and is known to cause GI upset.

Added Coloring – Sometimes known as artificial coloring. Certain colors, such as ‘Red #3’ are cancerous and are banned from uses in human products. Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide also fall into the added color category.

Copper Sulfate – Is an irritant and is linked to copper toxicity. Many do not like the presence of this ingredient in cat food because it has many other uses. It can be found in the leather, wood, battery, ink, paint, and metal industries.

Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex/Menadione Dimethylpyrimidinol Bisulfite – A man-made form of Vitamin K. There are concerns over toxicity relating to this ingredient in cat food.

Sodium Nitrite – Used as a preservative. Ingesting nitrites could lead to the formation of nitrosamines. Most nitrosamines are cancerous. This is a risky ingredient.

This practice is not popular anymore because people found out what ‘meat’ meant. This was just an example of what ‘meat’ can mean.

By-Products – The clean parts of named animal other than the actual meat. This can include the brain, bone, blood, kidneys, clean intestines, clean stomach, and lungs. Basically anything from the slaughtered animal except the hair, horns, teeth, and hoofs.

Artifical Flavoring – Man-made chemicals that are usually sprayed onto the food to entice the cat to eat it.

Guar Gum - A less harmful thickening agent used in cat food. Still, interferes with protein absorption and is known to cause GI upset.

Copper Sulfate – Is an irritant and is linked to copper toxicity. Many do not like the presence of this ingredient in cat food because it has many other uses. It can be found in the leather, wood, battery, ink, paint, and metal industries.

Added Coloring – Sometimes known as artificial coloring. Certain colors, such as ‘Red #3’ are cancerous and are banned from uses in human products. Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide also fall into the added color category.

Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex/Menadione Dimethylpyrimidinol Bisulfite – A man-made form of Vitamin K. There are concerns over toxicity relating to this ingredient in cat food.

Chicken Broth - Used to add moisture to the formula. Different from water as broth has added nutrients and proteins. This broth is made from chicken.

Liver – An organ meat that is packed full of nutrients. Rich in Vitamin A. A good quality ingredient, yet intake has to be monitored. A vague term as we don't know the source of the liver.

Meat By-Products – By-products from a vague source. 'Meat' doesn't indicate where the by-products originate.

Chicken – Meat, skin, and bone of chicken. About 70% moisture therefore is always seen near the top of ingredients lists. After cooking, the chicken loses most of its moisture as well as protein. A common ingredient found in cat food.

Fish – This is the most vague term used for this ingredient. We have no idea what species of fish was used, or even what family this fish belongs to.

Protein (corn gluten) from corn is not appropriate as cats are carnivores. Corn based ingredients should be avoided if possible.

Artifical Flavoring – Man-made chemicals that are usually sprayed onto the food to entice the cat to eat it.

Added Coloring – Sometimes known as artificial coloring. Certain colors, such as ‘Red #3’ are cancerous and are banned from uses in human products. Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide also fall into the added color category.

Non-Meat Protein – This refers to protein extracted particularly from non-meat sources, this includes pea and potato protein amongst others. These ingredients have a low biological value. The protein from these sources simply cannot be used effectively by cats, as this protein lacks essential amino acids the cat needs.

Copper Sulfate – Is an irritant and is linked to copper toxicity. Many do not like the presence of this ingredient in cat food because it has many other uses. It can be found in the leather, wood, battery, ink, paint, and metal industries.

Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex/Menadione Dimethylpyrimidinol Bisulfite – A man-made form of Vitamin K. There are concerns over toxicity relating to this ingredient in cat food.

Grilled Seafood Feast In Gravy

 

Ingredients

fish broth, ocean fish, wheat gluten, liver, meat by-products, chicken, corn starch-modified, artificial and natural flavors, corn oil, shrimp, salt, tricalcium phosphate, soy protein concentrate, added color, MINERALS [potassium chloride, magnesium sulfate, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, copper sulfate, manganese sulfate, potassium iodide], choline chloride, taurine, Red 3, VITAMINS [thiamine mononitrate (Vitamin B-1), Vitamin E supplement, niacin (Vitamin B-3), calcium pantothenate (Vitamin B-5), Vitamin A supplement, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (Vitamin K), pyridoxine hydrochloride (Vitamin B-6), riboflavin supplement (Vitamin B-2), Vitamin B-12 supplement, biotin (Vitamin B-7), folic acid (Vitamin B-9), Vitamin D-3 supplement].

First 5 ingredients

Fish Broth – Used to add moisture to the formula. Different from water as broth has added nutrients and proteins. Broth made from fish may have elevated levels of mercury compared to chicken broth.

Ocean Fish – A vague term for fish. Fish is an animal protein source. There are concerns about the quality of fish used to make pet food. Usually it is waste of the fishing industry.

Wheat Gluten – Gluten that has been extracted from wheat. A plant based protein, so mostly nutritionally useless in cat food.

Liver – An organ meat that is packed full of nutrients. Rich in Vitamin A. A good quality ingredient, yet intake has to be monitored. A vague term as we don't know the source of the liver.

Meat By-Products – By-products from a vague source. 'Meat' doesn't indicate where the by-products originate.

Ingredients to Point Out

Fish/Seafood - Fish have elevated levels of mercury. Feeding a cat fish every now and then is okay. Long term exposure to fish will cause health problems. Also, the majority of the time fish used for pet food is rank and of poor quality. Unless otherwise stated by the company as 'food fit for human consumption'. This applies to seafood as well.

Gluten – Gluten is the protein that is found in many different types of grains, including wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is a protein source. Cats simply cannot digest gluten and use it effectively in their bodies. They need protein from a meat source.

Meat – The term ‘meat’ can mean anything. Safe ingredients will name the source. Example, chicken meal vs meat meal. The first ingredient you know is coming from chicken. The second one, you have no idea. It could actually be cats and dogs. Some pet food manufacturers actually used to use euthanized pets for meat meal. This practice is not popular anymore because people found out what ‘meat’ meant. This was just an example of what ‘meat’ can mean.

By-Products – The clean parts of named animal other than the actual meat. This can include the brain, bone, blood, kidneys, clean intestines, clean stomach, and lungs. Basically anything from the slaughtered animal except the hair, horns, teeth, and hoofs.
