Chicken by-product is the first one! How is that good. That could mean beaks, or feet or FEATHERS!!! You have no idea what that is. As to drpepperheather's point that it may be what the animal eats in the wild, sure it might be a part of the chicken that is good for cats and is eaten in the wild, that would be parts like eyes, brain, stomach that we don't eat, but there is just no way to know what they've put in it. Also in the wild they are most certainly eating the whole animal so how is just having the by-product a good thing? Also hardly any animal digests corn well. Not even people. So the fact that it is the second ingredient really bothers me. This is the food you think is so great? It's good they are preserving with tocopherals instead of horrible chemicals but that's the only good thing I can see about this food.
I don't mean to upset you but I'm really passionate about my pets health. It upsets me that so called scientifically formulated foods can still have so much corn and other ingredients that don't make logical sense to put in food for animals that evolved as mainly carnivores. It's just common sense. If you were a carnivore would you eat corn? I don't get it at all.
