(Idea suggested by Nancy, I just figured I'd bite the bullet and get it started!)

Directions: Take a picture of one piece of kibble of the food next to a penny. Post the picture with the name of the food, including whether it's light, adult, kitten, etc. This is an informational thread only, so try to keep conversation and questions to a minimum. :)

Natural Balance Green Pea & Duck


Innova Low Fat Adult


Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul Adult Cat Light


Solid Gold Katz-n-Flocken All Life Stages


Nutro Max Cat Weight Control (chicken flavor) (just want to note that I cut this one in half for Lily)


(And I apologize that my photos are a bit blurry, my camera's not the best!)

I have a mix, so I'll add two that hasn't shown up yet.
I might have the flavour wrong (the packaging is somewhere in my basement). I'll update if I'm wrong.

I'm from Chile and I'm having a hard time deciding on what to feed my girls since we don't have high quality brands here. This is the mix I came up with after a long time studying everything we had available:

Mazuri Insectivore Diet



Guaranteed Analysis
Crude protein not less than...........................28.0%
Crude fat not less than..................................11.0%
Crude fiber not more than .............................13.0%
Ash not more than...........................................8.0%
Moisture not more than .................................12.0%

Ingredients:
Poultry by-product meal, ground soybean hulls, ground wheat, low ash poultry by product, dried beet pulp, rice flour,
soybean meal, dried egg product, ground aspen, porcine animal fat (preserved with BHA), poultry fat (preserved with
ethoxyquin), poultry digest (flavor), dried apple pomace, powdered cellulose, wheat germ, fish meal (menhaden), dried
whey, shrimp meal, soy oil, lecithin, brewers yeast, fish oil, phosphoric acid, salt, dl-methionine, taurine, choline chloride,
mixed tocopherols (a natural preservative), ascorbic acid, citric acid, rosemary extract, menadione sodium bisulfite
complex (vitamin K), cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), marigold extract, inositol, d-alpha tocopheryl acetate (natural source of
vitamin E), vitamin A acetate, vitamin B12 supplement, l-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (stabilized vitamin C), calcium
pantothenate, niacin, manganous oxide, thiamin mononitrate, calcium carbonate, zinc oxide, ferrous carbonate, ferrous
sulfate, copper sulfate, riboflavin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, canthaxanthin, zinc sulfate, folic acid, calcium iodate, cobalt
carbonate biotin, sodium selenite.

My opinion: Good kibble size, good analysis, not so good ingredients. I don't like the low presence of meat, the by-products bit and I really don't like the presence of BHA and ethoxyquin. (I'm planning on eliminating this diet all-together)

Purina Pro Plan Indoor Chicken and Rice



Guaranteed Analysis

Crude protein (min)...........................36,0%
Crude fat (min)..................................14.0%
Crude fiber (max) .............................7.0%
Moisture (max) .................................12.0%

Ingredients:

Chicken; brewers rice; chicken by-product meal; corn gluten meal; yellow ground corn; oat fiber; wheat gluten; tuna meal; animal fat preserved with mixed tocopherols (form of vitamin E); animal digest; cellulose; gish oil; inulin; egg powder; phosphoric acid, among others (since I'm translating and I got tired, lol)

My opinion: Average kibble size (I break it up), average analysis, average ingredients.

Bumping this up for newer users to see - if anyone has a camera and a penny, and don't see your kibble on the thread already, we'd love it if you took a picture of the kibble size to add! :)

Yeah, I remember seeing a while back that they changed the shape. A few people were pretty annoyed by it since the x-shape is easier for hedgehogs to eat. Companies like changing things just as owners find something that works well for a lot of hedgies. :roll:

Simply Nourish Senior Adult Cat Food, Chicken and Rice:


Protein is 32% Fat 14% and 4% fiber. Only place I can locate it is in store at PetsMart, I cannot find it online so I am not sure whether or not they are going to continue this food, but I would not recommend it. The ingredients were similar to the regular adult food, but my very active male started loosing weight on this food and I couldn't even get my female to eat more than a couple of kibbles. I took it back so I don't have any other info for ingredients and nutrition.

Evolve Chicken & Rice Kitten Formula

I just took a picture of the ingredients because every place on the web has the wrong ingredients listed. I use this in my mix for younger hogs and when mom was expecting/nursing.
I have yet to find it in stores so I order it from wag.com for $17.99 for a 3lb bag. Everyone always loves it, that's why I keep going through the hassle and expense of ordering it...The things I do for my Piggies :roll:
