I was just wondering what people thought of this food? It's similar to the RC Indoor Light 40 that I'm feeding to Puff right now, which seems to be all she's eating lately, but has less corn ingredients and a little less protein. I can also get it from work (vet clinic) for cheap so if it will work and she'll eat it I'll be very happy because she refuses to eat her wellness, blue spa and natural balance and is only eating CSFTCLS light and the RC Indoor Light 40 lately and needs a few more healthy foods to eat!!

Any thoughts???

Ingredients:
Chicken Meal, Rice, Corn Gluten Meal, Natural Flavour, Powdered Cellulose, Calcium Sulphate, Chicken Fat, Potassium Chloride, Dried Beet Pulp, Dried Brewer's Yeast, Fish Oil, Salt, DL-Methionine, Calcium Carbonate, Monopotassium Phosphate, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Vitamins (DL-Alpha-Tocopherol [Source of Vitamin E], L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate [Source of Vitamin C], Niacin, Biotin, Riboflavin [Vitamin B2], D-Calcium Pantothenate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride [Vitamin B6], Vitamin A Acetate, Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement and Vitamin D3 Supplement), L-Carnitine, Trace Minerals (Zinc Oxide, Ferrous Sulphate, Zinc Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Sulphate, Manganous Oxide, Copper Proteinate, Calcium Iodate and Sodium Selenite), Marigold Extract (Source of Lutein) and Green Tea Polyphenols.

It is ok but the protein is a little high and they boost the level artificially. In a mix with other things it should be ok.

It's about 2% lower than the royal canin indoor light 40 (40% protein) that is in her mix right now so I was gonna use it to replace that as a healthier junk food.

What is the healthy maximum protein amount a food should have? Cause foods on the food list have anywhere from high 20's to 40% so I wasn't sure which was the IDEAL maximum in order to prevent liver/kidney issues.

Technical has lower protein levels than RC but is basically the same otherwise and is sold everywhere. My gang get it in their mix on occasion.

I like to stick to 35% protein or lower.

Thanks Nancy :)
I picked up a little bag today so I'll see if I can get her eating more of that and less of the royal canin.
Everything else I have is below 35% protein so I think I'm good otherwise.
