Top 10 Worst Dry Cat Foods

When you work with and care for pets, of course the topic of nutrition/feeding comes up as part of their care routine. The foods we feed our pets is probably the singular most important thing we can do to make sure our fur kids are with us for many happy years. Often, our Mesa cat sitting clients will ask us for recommendations. So naturally when I came across the information, I felt it was important for our Mesa cat sitters to know about it, as well as our cat sitting clients.

To avoid bad ingredients you will need to become an educated label reader. If your cat food label said, cancer causing agent, calorie-less food filler (think beer for cats), or allergy agent, would you pick up and buy the bag? Hopefully not, but that’s exactly what most unknowing consumers are doing! Scroll down to the bottom of the article and you will find the list of ingredients to avoid feeding your furbabies.

Sorry to say that many people feed their cats these very well known and thought to be ‘good brands listed in the below article  (myself included before I knew so much about pet food in the last couple years). Many of you will be surprised at the brands on this list!

So here you are. The top 10 worst dry cat foods you can feed your cats with the ‘bad’ ingredients listed in red by each brand:
