Canidae / Felidae (Chicken Meal & Rice)
Rating: | Price: $$ | Website
Felidae is made by the same people who make Canidae for dogs. It’s a pretty well known brand, and among premium foods it should be one of the easier ones to find. This is the adult version of their Cat & Kitten Formula.
Chicken meal is the #1 ingredient, so that’s great to see. It’s followed up with brown rice which is one of the better grains. Chicken fat comes next, which is the highest I’ve seen this ingredient in a pet food. I’m on the fence with this one but it’s good for a healthy skin and coat as well as being a source of energy. Egg product is included as another protein source which is good, although “whole eggs” could’ve been a better alternative as this is a prominent ingredient in this food.
The Cat & Kitten formula seems a bit better to me, being backed up by additional turkey and lamb meals which aren’t present in this food.
All in all this isn’t a bad food. The choice of grains is good and there’s no use of by-products which is great. This is food from a company that cares about what they sell, but there’s still a little room for improvement.
Where to buy?
What’s good about this food….
Chicken meal in 1st, backed up with decent grains and other protein sources. Flaxseed is high in the list which is good.
….and what’s not so good.
Would prefer to see whole eggs instead of egg product, especially as this is the 4th ingredient.
