With all of the cat food brands out on the market, it can get confusing as to which is the best to purchase for your feline. All cat food seem to claim they’re the best, but do you really know what’s in your cat’s food? For starters, a lot of dry cat food is made from grain and very little meat – if any at all. The best dry cat food is made of top-quality ingredients, using named meat sources and contains no fillers (i.e. corn, wheat, soy), no artificial ingredients, and no by-products. The way to figure out if it is quality cat food is by looking at the first five ingredients listed.
Here are the five best dry cat food out there:
Fromm’s is considered one of the best foods out there on the market today. Five out of the first nine ingredients are all meat products. The “surf” is salmon and the “turf” is duck and chicken. This one contains no grains whatsoever, and it’s not filled with by-products either – only high quality goodness!
Cats love the taste and humans love it because they have quality ingredients – after all, they do advertise themselves as the “ancestral diet,” which is just a nice way of saying that the food is the way cats used to eat before humans started giving them fillers like corn and soy in their food. It’s expensive stuff, but totally worth the price tag!
With no grains in it, this Nature’s Variety product is filled with meat content. Aside from great meat in it, it also contains tapioca (a substitute for grains) as well as pumpkin seeds and alfalfa.
This cat food is considered a top of the line – some even consider it as pampering your feline! While it is an expensive brand and only comes in two varieties, it also contains no grain and boasts that it has a “biologically correct” ratio of 75% meat and 25% fruit and vegetables as its ingredients.
Most cats adore this dry cat food, which is made from high-quality proteins and no artificial ingredients or preservatives. It also contains probiotics (yay, digestion!), flaxseed and salmon oils, which provide the necessary fatty acids.
