According to our data, this Nutro recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for the maintenance of adult cats. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Nutro Max Oceanfish Formula For Adult Cats is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for the maintenance of adult cats.
We'll begin this review of Nutro Max Oceanfish Formula For Adult Cats with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first 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 second ingredient is cod. Although cod is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw cod contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of cod 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 third ingredient is chicken. Chicken is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, chicken contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of chicken is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fourth ingredient is turkey. Turkey is another outstanding protein source, naturally rich in all of the essential amino acids required by cats.
The fifth ingredient is beef liver. Beef liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, beef liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Max Oceanfish Formula For Adult 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 Nutro recipe.
Next we have beef. Beef is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, beef contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of beef is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The next ingredient is ground rice. Ground rice is a gluten-free carbohydrate source. As long as the bran and germ of the grain are intact, rice can provide a notable amount of fiber and nutrition. However, because the type of rice ("brown" or "white") is not specified, we cannot make this determination.
Then we have mackerel. Mackerel is another outstanding protein and omega-3 fatty acids source. Mackerel also contains all of the necessary essential amino acids required by cats.
Moving on, we have guar gum. Guar gum (or guaran) is obtained from guar beans which have been dehusked, milled and screened. It's commonly used in wet food products as a thickening agent and provides a notable amount of dietary fiber.
Moving on with this review, we have potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Max 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 Nutro Max Oceanfish Formula For Adult Cats is 3.0 out of 5.
