Best Cat Food 2017
A healthy diet is your cat’s best defense for a long life that is free of disease. A cat’s nutritional requirements are relatively simple. These basic ingredients should be listed at the top for choosing dry food for your cat:
- Protein from an identified meat, fish or poultry source (look for “beef,” “lamb,” “turkey,” ”chicken,” “tuna” — not just “meat” or “meat product”)
- Taurine, an essential amino acid
- Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fatty acids
Preservatives are necessary to keep the food fresh. Fillers such as corn, wheat, rice, colorings, binders and flavors are added to both dry and canned cat food by the manufacturers to provide bulk and satisfy consumers. Better-quality brands will have fewer artificial preservatives and cheap fillers.
