Review of Hound & Gatos Grain Free
98% Lamb, Chicken & Salmon Recipe For Cats
This product is manufactured by Gott Pet Products.
According to our data, this Hound & Gatos recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for all life stages. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Hound & Gatos Grain Free 98% Lamb, Chicken & Salmon Recipe For Cats is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
We'll begin this review of Hound & Gatos Grain Free 98% Lamb, Chicken & Salmon Recipe For Cats with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is lamb. Although lamb is an excellent protein source, raw lamb contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of lamb 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 second ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.
The third ingredient is lamb broth. Lamb broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, lamb broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The fourth ingredient is salmon. Salmon is another excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source. As with other raw meats, salmon contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of salmon is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fifth ingredient is agar-agar, which is commonly used as a thickening or gelling agent.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Hound & Gatos Grain Free 98% Lamb, Chicken & Salmon Recipe For Cats 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 Hound & Gatos recipe.
Next we have tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate is typically used for its mineral contents. However, it can also be used to evenly disperse fat in wet food products.
The next ingredient is salt. Salt is an important mineral for both humans and cats. Depending on the quantity of salt used (which we cannot determine), salt may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.
Then we have potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
Moving on, we have choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
The remaining ingredients in this Hound & Gatos Grain Free recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.
Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives most of its protein from animal based sources. This is an excellent property because meat based protein contains all of the necessary amino acids required by cats. In our option, this is one of the most important properties to judge when reviewing pet food, therefore we believe this is an exceptional product in this regard.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for Hound & Gatos Grain Free 98% Lamb, Chicken & Salmon Recipe For Cats is 5.0 out of 5.
