This pet food contains a synthetic amino acid DL-Methionine. Click Here to read more about this supplement.

The sodium selenite ingredient in this cat food is not noted under minus as it would be in a dog food. The reason: the safer form of delivering selenium to the pet food, selenium yeast, is not yet approved for use in cat foods by the FDA. This manufacturer is using sodium selenite because it is the only option for this supplement. Click Here to read more about selenium.

 

To explain the rating – only the first five ingredients – the majority of the food – are rated and listed in bold type. Grey Font ingredients imply ingredients providing pets little to no nutrition, and Red Font ingredients are Red Flag ingredients that are potentially dangerous to pets. Quality ingredients are listed in bold black font. Five quality ingredients gives the pet food a five Paw Print rating. Four quality ingredients gives the pet food a four Paw Print rating, and so forth. Four Paw Prints is the highest rating possible for a canned pet food. Do not rely on the paw print rating alone; read the Plus/Minus information and manufacturer information at the top of each page.
