Only a few flavors of Nutro have garlic - and Nutro includes Max Cat canned, the Nutro Pouches, Nutro Natural ...the ones I found that do are from the Nutro Gourmet Classics - and only these: lamb and turkey cutlets, savory hunter's stew with duck (the same name but with venison did not have garlic), classic seafood & tomato bisque, turkey and liver saute.
I did not see where Natural Balance had garlic when I was researching their ingredients.
Wysong...their "All Meat & Organs" flavors do not have garlic but are not complete, they are meant to be supplemented. Wysong Anergen and all the gourmet flavors I checked the ingredients for, do have garlic.
I can not find any canned foods by Royal Canin.
Pro Plan has some flavors that are chunks in gravy (though check this, they have changed some formulations recently), the Nutro gourmet classics that do not have garlic may have some chunky or shredded formulations.
Active Life is another brand (super premium) that has shredded or chunky varieties, but this company is going out of production until some time in 2005, and is already hard to find as it is.
Pet Gold...you'll have to check the label for description if ground, chunked, sliced etc.
I would suggest you pick the brand you feel best about from what you see in the ingredient list, the price, the comments of folks in the thread I gave you a link to, then try just a couple of cans to see if your cat likes it.
You have to know this is all a plot by your cat to get you out there perusing the cat food shelves in various pet stores, constantly thinking of what she or he might like.
We are all so well trained by our cats
