solid gold cat food

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello again

My cat Joshua has been doing alright with the Nutro dry food (he was having diarrhea from foods I tried earlier) but I am still looking at what's out there for quality cat food.

Has anyone ever tried Solid Gold dry cat food?
Could it be suitable for sensitive stomachs?

The first ingredient is Lamb and I noticed that a lot of brands that have "sensitive" formulas use lamb as well. Is lamb more digestible than chicken?

Also, Solid Gold has no corn at all.

I still have to call around for prices to see if I can afford it, but it's certainly something to consider.

Lamb is less digestable than chicken by about 4-5% ... I cant remember but I think Solid Gold has alot of grains.. = less digestable..

Lamb | Chicken Meal | Millet | Brown Rice | Menhaden Fish Meal | Cracked Pearled Barley | Canola Oil | Flaxseed Oil | Garlic | Amaranth | Blueberries | Dried Chicory Root | Taurine | Carotene | Choline Chloride | Vitamin E Supplement | Iron Proteinate | Zinc Proteinate | Yucca Schidigera Extract | Copper Proteinate | Manganese Proteinate | Potassium Iodide | Thiamine Mononitrate | Ascorbic Acid | Vitamin A Supplement | Biotin | Calcium Panthothenate | Sodium Selenite | Pyridoxine Hydrochloride | Vitamin B12 Supplement | Riboflavin | Vitamin D Supplement | Folic Acid |

three meats three grains... not bad but it has a lot of garlic... this is not a sensative tummy food... Reason many "sentative " food s have lamb it is less allergenic....

I would try Natural balance venison and pea to see about both tummy issues and food allergies..

Around here Solid Gold is a small fortune...

My cat had been having lots of issues with diarrhea. My vet wanted to try him on a veterinary diet, but I wasn't impressed with the ingredients in most of them (lots of by-products). I went shopping this weekend and the vet tech at the store suggested Felidae (I got the platinum since one of my kitties is very much a senior). It contains no wheat, corn, soy or garlic, and Spot's diarrhea is gone. This is the ingredient list from their website:

Chicken Meal, Turkey Meal, Brown Rice, Lamb Meal, Chicken Fat, (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols and Rosemary Extract), Menhaden Fish Meal, Eggs, Flax Seed Meal, Sun Cured Alfalfa Meal, Sunflower Oil, Lecithin, Nutritional Yeast, Natural Flavors, Linoleic Acid, Rosemary Extract, Sage Extract, Amaranth, DL Methionine, Taurine, Kelp, Cranberry Meal, Apple Meal, Probiotics, (Freeze Dried Streptococcus Faecium Fermentation Product, Freeze Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product), Vitamins A, D-Activated Animal Sterol Vitamin D3, Vitamin E, Vitamin B12, Riboflavin, Niacin, Choline Chloride, Calcium Pantothenate, Folic Acid, Pyridoxine-Hydrochloride, Thiamin, Biotin, Amino Acid Chelated Minerals, Zinc, Manganese, Iron, Copper, Cobalt, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite, Bacillus Subtilis, Yeast Culture, Yucca Schidigera Extract.


I can't say whether it will work for your kitty, but mine are doing quite well on it.

I don't think Felidae is available here. I'll take a look next time I'm at the pet store.

They do have Natural Balance but it's very expensive. Around CAN$25 for 4 or 5 pounds. Solid Gold was actually half the price of Natural Balance.

I'm keeping him on Nutro right now because he seems to be doing fairly well on it. I'll keep my eyes open for a better option.
