Regal Dry Cat Food Consumer Ratings
Consumer reviews are slightly mixed in reference to Regal brand cat food. The inclusion of Poultry Digest and corn ingredients was not very well received, as more cat owners are looking for a completely corn-free diet for their cats. However, the fact that the first ingredient in all three of Regal's dry cat food formulas is protein-based is a positive factor. The inclusion of white rice products in all three formulas may not be ideal for cat owners who wish to feed their cat a grain-free diet.
