High Quality Dry Cat Foods - فيسبوك - Facebook
You can see the current nutrient recommendations for kittens . (Figures given in dry matter basis.) Information for kittens is listed as “Growth and Reproduction.” As you can see, it is recommended that growing kittens have a minimum of 30 percent protein in their food, compared to a minimum of 26 percent protein for adult cats. Both kittens and adult cats are recommended to have 9 percent fat in their diets. It is recommended that kittens have a calcium to phosphorus ratio of 1.0 to 0.8, while adult cats can have a ratio that is nearly equal (0.6 to 0.5). Kittens also need almost double the Vitamin A that adult cats need – and Vitamin A is an important vitamin for cats. Kittens also require slightly more of the amino acids Lysine and Tryptophan than adult cats.
We researched cheap canned (a.k.a., wet) cat food and cheap dry (a.k.a. kibble) cat food to find the best of each for the average cat. In the canned cat food column we put Trader Joe's Premium (starting at 69 cents/5.5-ounce can) in first place for its quality ingredients, followed by Friskies Meaty Bits (starting at $11/24-pack 5.5-ounce cans) for the their bargain price and popularity with consumers (that would the cats). In the dry cat food column, Purina One Smartblend Adult Variety (starting at $27/16 pounds) earns top billing for relatively high protein content and low price while Taste of the Wild Feline Formula (starting at $28.50/15 pounds) comes in second for its perceived health benefits and feeding efficiency (owners say a little goes a long way). Two cheap cat foods that just don't rank are Special Kitty Premium (starting at $10.18/24-pack 5.5-ounce cans), Walmart's in-house brand, and Friskies Dry (starting at $13.50/16 pounds), both of which sink on the ingredients test.
A truly top quality dry cat food should contain no by-products, no fillers such as wheat & corn, and no artificial flavors or preservatives. It’s important to note that ingredients are listed by weight, be sure to study the top 5 ingredients and pick a high meat to vegetable ratio.
But Taste of the Wild does cut some costs to get its low price. Peas and potatoes appear high on the ingredient list of Taste of the Wild dry cat foods. Some experts say these are quality ingredients, but others say cats simply don't need all those carbs; one frets that pea ingredients could cause some digestive issues in sensitive cats.A truly top quality dry cat food should contain no by-products, no fillers such as wheat & corn, and no artificial flavors or preservatives.

received a 5-star rating from the Pet Products Review, and it's well-deserved, considering it is nourishing and 'biologically appropriate.' Orijen, which comes in dry formulas that can be served wet or dry, includes a variety of protein choices for cats kittens. It has a 75 percent protein content to a 25 percent fruit and vegetable content. In terms of high quality proteins, we are talking about things like real eggs, free range antibiotic free chicken and fresh wild caught fish. It is also grain free. Customers say that their pickiest of cats love this brand; the only negative comments are about the higher price of it as compared to some other cat foods. Clearly, the higher quality ingredients require the higher price tag. Orijen does not make a canned diet for cats. (See reviews and buy .) Fancy Feast is a Purina brand of gourmet wet and dry cat food. Founded in 1982, they have a reputation for providing a great variety of high quality cat food products. According to my vet, cheap dry food (supermarket own, go-cat, whiskas etc) is far far worse than cheap wet food. I feed mine any wet food (they love Aldi pouches which are only around £2:38 and a good quality dry food (either Purina ProPlan Complete, HillsNatures Best orJames Wellbeloved) but but apparently Pets at Home Adult Complete Cat Food is very good nutritionally too. Don't forget, if you get a kitten(under 6 months), start on the kitten versions.
