    First Five Ingredients Analysis:

    • Deboned Chicken
    • Chicken Meal
    • Rice
    • Ground Barley
    • Ground Rice

    Chicken is the clean combination of skin and flesh without the bone derived from whole chickens. This is the same deboned chicken we eat and is free of added growth hormones and steroids. It is an excellent source of high quality protein and fatty acids and is the first ingredient in any of our chicken based diets for cats and dogs. Wellness uses naturally preserved meat sources.

    As the chicken cooks, all of the fat and water are released, creating a concentrated, highly-digestible protein and fat source. For our cat foods, we source and select special low-ash chicken meal as to control mineral levels that contribute to proper urinary health. Wellness uses naturally preserved meat sources.

    Unless listed as brown rice, rice is the de-hulled rice kernel, without the bran. Rice is the preferred grain for feline diets as it is low in minerals, specifically magnesium. Controlling the mineral content of a diet is especially important for cats prone to urinary tract disease. Wellness uses some whole rice and some ground rice in the dietary solutions recipes.

    Ground/Pearled Barley is produced from whole barley seeds that have been scoured to remove the seed hull and bran. An excellent choice for specialized obesity and diabetic pet diets due to its unique nutritional make-up, modest amounts of slowly digested starch and the soluble fiber B-glucan. It is more digestible than whole or cracked barley.

    Unless listed as brown rice, rice is the de-hulled rice kernel, without the bran. Rice is the preferred grain for feline diets as it is low in minerals, specifically magnesium.

    the BEST food for cats–no byproducts or corn –others contain items that should not be fed to cats–one healthy product–and my cat of 3 yrs old shows it–on the other foods my other cat had hairballs at least 2x a month–with my new cat=2 in 2 yrs–speaks for itself

    I switched my cats from Natural Choice to Wellness about a month ago. The price is roughly the same around here, but I’m switching again to another brand, since I’m not happy with the results at all.

    My cats didn’t seem to happy with the change, and neither of the two really like the flavour. Furthermore, the pellets are far too small for adult cats, meaning that my cats don’t chew the pellets, and end up having difficulty digesting the food.
