In dry matter terms, this works out to 45.5 percent protein, 22.7 percent fat, 6.8 percent fiber, and 15.9 percent carbs, well above the AAFCO requirements for both kittens and adults.AvoDerm® Adult Chicken & Herring Meal is a dry maintenance food for adult cats. The first five ingredients in the food are: Chicken Meal, Ground Whole Brown Rice, Ground Whole White Rice, Chicken Fat (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), and Dried Tomato Pomace. The guaranteed analysis for the food shows 32 percent crude protein, 20 percent crude fat, 3.5 percent crude fiber, and 10 percent moisture. In terms of dry matter basis, these percentages work out to 35.6 percent protein, 22.2 percent protein, 3.9 percent fiber, and 31.7 percent carbs.

It is AAFCO-approved for all life stages.AvoDerm Tuna and Crab Entree in Gravy is one of AvoDerm’s canned/wet foods. It’s an all life stage, grain free food. It’s not unusual for a canned food to be grain free because compared with dry foods. Many people today recommend canned foods for cats because they have more meat protein and more moisture than dry foods – things that are good for cats.AvoDerm also makes a grain free and gluten-free food called AvoDerm Natural® Grain Free dry cat food. This food comes in two formulas – grain free turkey meal; and grain free ocean fish & chicken meal. Looking at the grain free turkey meal formula, the first five ingredients in this food are: Turkey Meal, Peas, Tapioca Flour, Pea Flour, and Chicken Fat (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols). The guaranteed analysis shows 31 percent crude protein, 17 percent crude fat, 4 percent crude fiber, and 10 percent moisture. Unlike other AvoDerm foods, this one does not provide the crude percentage for Ash in the food; and it doesn’t provide the Ash percent in the nutrient analysis. Ash is a measurement of the inorganic material in a food – the calcium, phosphorus, and other minerals. Dry foods typically have ash percentages around 7 percent. Since this information isn’t provided – and AvoDerm does provide it for their other foods, this suggests to us that it might be very high for this cat food. The food also contains a lot of plant and dairy sources of protein in the food. The protein percentage is high, but a lot of that protein comes from non-meat sources. This is not a food we would recommend based on these factors.Avoderm does have one dry corn-free formula, which may be appropriate for cats with corn-based allergies. However, since all of the other dry formulas include a significant amount of corn, cats with allergies may not do well on these formulas. Corn is one of the most common ingredients that can cause allergic reactions in some cats. If your cat has a specific allergy, you should always read the ingredients of any cat food formula.
