Review of Blue Buffalo Natural Veterinary Diet
KM Kidney + Mobility Support
This product is manufactured by Blue Buffalo.
Unfortunately, our team has not been able to confirm that this product meets any AAFCO nutrition profiles. We rely on the companies website to provide this information. However, we were not able to find a nutritional adequacy statement on the company's website. We caution owners from feeding non-AAFCO approved products because these products may not contain all of the nutrients required by your cat.
We'll begin this review of Blue Buffalo Natural Veterinary Diet KM Kidney + Mobility Support with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.
The second ingredient is chicken broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The third ingredient is water, which adds necessary moisture to the food.
The fourth ingredient is potato. Potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten free carbohydrate source which also provides various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The fifth ingredient is potato starch. Potato starch is a gluten-free ingredient extracted from potatoes. Unlike whole potatoes, the starch itself does not provide a notable amount of nutrition.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Blue Buffalo Natural Veterinary Diet KM Kidney + Mobility Support are not as important as the first five ingredients.
However, collectively they still have a significant impact on the overall quality of the product. Therefore, we'll continue discussing the remaining ingredients in this Blue Buffalo recipe.
Next we have beef. Although beef is an excellent protein source, raw beef contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of beef is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.
The next ingredient is chicken liver. Chicken liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, chicken liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
Then we have carrot, which are naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant.
Moving on, we have pea fiber. Pea fiber is a concentrated dietary fiber source. Fiber can help stabilize blood sugar levels and promote colon health.
Moving on with this review, we have sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.
The remaining ingredients in this Blue Buffalo Natural Veterinary Diet recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.
Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives a considerable amount of protein from non-meat ingredients. Since this product is a prescription diet, this property may be required and therefore we cannot make any further statements.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
