WARNING: DO NOT BUY NUTRO PET FOOD PRODUCTS
I used to have 6 cats. Now I have 4.
Feeding 6 cats a strict diet was really hard, and most often resulted in chaos and injuries, so I switched to open feeding. Predictably, they gained weight. Like, a lot of weight.
So, I decided that I should switch from the…
I always warn people away from Nutro.
I also like to remind people not to feed something that your vet recommends. Veterinarians are actually paid by food companies to push their foods, some even sell it in their office. My favourite vet of all time that I would always trust for everything (except what food buy) sold Science Diet and I’d never touch the stuff.
When buying food for your animals, do your research. Make sure that the companies are using quality meat. There has been an issue with companies using bad meat from China lately that has been causing a lot of kidney issues, and in cats it can be more apparent because their food has a higher % of meat.
I recommend Taste of the Wild Wetlands and High Prairie for dogs. I don’t have cats so I can’t recommend any food for them. I would assume that ToTW is of similar quality in their cat food but I can’t say for sure.
For canned, I recommend Canidae. I’ve had several overly spoiled picky dogs that have refused to eat anything at all (even prime rib from a restaurant once) who loved it, and if you add some to your dog’s diet, you usually see huge differences in coat quality even if you’re already feeding a good food. They also make cat foods- but again I don’t have cats but if the canned quality is even across the board, it might be a good choice. Again, that’s why I tell people do do their research.
