Grain Free Wet Foods

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Can you guys point me towards grain free wet foods? Also, do you think switching from dry to grain free wet would help for a cat who has on/off constipation issues?

There are quite a few grain free wet foods of good quality.

Merrick - some flavors, check the label
Evo
Nature's Variety Instinct
Wellness

are the ones I feed. I'm sure there are more available though.

A wet food diet is a healthier diet than dry for every reason. I personally feed Merrick's (no fish or seafood flavours though). I also feed a grain-free dry (Orijen). There are a number of food threads on this forum. Sharky is our in-house guru on foods and has posted a number of lists of good foods and pertinent information on them. Do a search and you'll find lots of info.

I agree sharky would be a good source, I'm sure you could find some more info using the search option.
My cats eat EVO wet (which is grain free) and they do wonderfully on it.

Natural Balance Chicken & Liver is grain free.

Wellness has several grain free flavors. The ones in my area still have the old formula with garlic though.

EVO 95% meat cans are great! No grains and only 1 protien source w/ vitamins and minerals. They come in chicken/turkey, beef, venisen, duck, and rabbit. My guys loved the first three, didn't care for the rabbit or duck though. They are pricey, but if you are feeding a good amount, you can buy the 13oz cans, which are cheaper to feed. The 95% line of canned EVO dog foods are exactly the same as the cat food, so those might be slightly cheaper for you.

My guys wouldn't touch the regular canned EVO for cats.

Thanks a lot guys!

I ended up going with by nature canned, because they stock them at the local PetSmart. I'll see how it goes.

It seems that By Nature is having some sort of problem with their food manufacturing, some people are reporting finding some sort of grain husk in the new batches of cans which is causing their cats to regurgitate the husk undigested. Info is here for anyone interested (requires registration): http://www.yourdiabeticcat.com/forum...erms=by+nature

I stopped feeding it and switched to the Natural Balance grain free (which is also available at my PetSmart).

Oops. I stopped by PetCo for the Natural Balance, not PetSmart. I got confused, because I usually go to PetSmart (it's closer).
