Canned Food Question/blue spa select

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Does anyone here feed their cats BLUE Spa Select? I was searching petsmart and just noticed it. It looks like a real high quality food. Does anyone have any Thoughts or opionions on this food? I am thinking of mixing in different kinds of wet food. I currently feed my cats fancy feast twice and day and I self feed dry food (science diet natures best and regular mixed)

Looks good in several ways, though I'm not a fan of thinking cats need/want herbed fruits and veggies like we do

Tell that to little miss trying to eat my jack-o-lantern over here!

The food looks good to me, but I've always wondered...

Are fruits and veggies BAD for cats, or just uneccessary. All I've ever heard is unecessary...

I was wondering if cranberries in the food help with urinary tract health as it does in humans?

Grapes and raisins are poisonous to cats, but other fruits so far as I can recall while having my first cup of coffee of the day are okay if the little darlings do want to try some.

Cats don't have the ability to taste sweet, so if they do like fruit, it's not from the natural sweetness.

Veggies...other than grass, cats don't normally in the wild go for vegetables, and as obligate carnivores, really don't need them (other than some fiber i.e. the grass), and can't really utilize them.

ooof...must finish coffee to be coherent

I just bought some today at petsmart/they didnt have a lot of it but they hade at least a couple dozen of each kind. I also bought some nutro max canned food to try. Are these two brands significantly better fooods then fancy feast? I really want to start mixing in better quality food and cut back a little on fancy feast.

The 2 foods I would recommend are Wellness Super 5 Mix and Wysong Vitality. They have the highest quality ingredients and have good veterinary recommendation. My guys love both kinds. The Wellness actually smells pretty good.

Yes, both of these are superior to Fancy Feast imo, though FF has at least one if not two seafood blends that are delightful - nothing from me "do not want to feed my cat" list

Wellness uses garlic which I will not feed, I believe Wysong does as well, though I will feed their Just Meat canned.

Gee Sharky, are we each other's echo?

I've been feeding my cats blue spa and they love it. Any flavor. The only thing to watch out for is that blue spa seems to have high calorie content so try not to overfeed them.
post #19 of 19
Petsmart had a rep at the store yesterday who convinced me to try some. So far I've given them the savory salmon and they liked it.

I've been trying to find a good quality food that doesn't have something that I won't feed them (like garlic in the Wellness), and that I can also find locally, and it's a real challenge.
