High Quality Dry Cat Food

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What is the highest quality dry cat food available in the UK?

I'm looking for something preserved naturally (usually with mixed tocopherols I hear) and that has a specified protein source (chicken meal instead of poultry meal or worse- meat and bone meal). Also, i don't like food that contains by products, and I look for foods that list some form of meat meal first, the more types of protein in the first 4 or 5 ingredients, the better.

Some advice I've been given is "If you can buy it in the shops, it's not good enough". They are American but after looking at the ingredients list of the only two cat foods my pet store offers, I can't argue.

James Wellbeloved and Royal Canin are IMO the best dry foods you can get here, you probably won't find them in the supermarket but pets@home stock both, although Royal Canin babycat and kitten varieties are only sold through vet surgeries.

If you can order online, then www.zooplus.co.uk have a wide range of foods covering the entire range of quality. I have been thinking of ordering some Orijen, which is supposedly all natural and the ingredients look great.

Zooplus also do a great range of wet foods, my favourites are Bozita (made in Sweden where they have strict agricultural controls so no hormones etc in the meat, it is 92% meat and only works out at 17p per meal so can't be beaten in terms of value for money!) and some more expensive but very good quality wet foods such as Almo Nature.

I've never had any problems with ordering or delivery using their service, they have so far been very reliable. The one time we had a problem was due to Nate's credit card, and zooplus contacted him quickly to let him know, so I have no hesitation in recommending them.

If you can get hold of a copy of August's issue of 'Your Cat' magazine which is just out now, it comes with a free sample pack of JWB and a £3 off voucher for a large bag, so that's a good opportunity to give it a try if you haven't already.

I feed mine this

They like it, it is a reasonable price and has good ingredients. They are an independant company that take a pride in their products and service.
