Well I know this is birds but I dont go to a cat forum sooooo....
I work at a pet store and a vet but it's hard to know who to believe. I mean vets always say there food is best and pet stores say theres, now I see both sides, vets say that although there food has corn and by products its thoroughly tested to make sure that it works well with different diseases, infections, and geriatric animals. while pet stores say that there high quality food has real meat and no grains so that you know the protiein source is coming mainly from the meat. But alot of times the owner of the pet store will tell people about different vegetables in the cats high quality feed, and that cranberries in the food will help with UTI. Now cats are obligate carnivores, I find it very hard to believe they cat get alot of nutrients out of vegetables, I mean they say cats protein shouldnt come from grains or vegetables because they cant process them well but then they add vegetables to their food. Well cranberries do help with UTI for humans, but would cats actually process this- I doubt it, even if they could how much can they get out of it after its been cooked at high temperatures and turned into kibble, Im sure that eating cranberry muffins wouldnt help with UTI so why would it help in kibble. I feed my dog taste of the wild dog kibble with blue wilderness canned food, but my cat is allergic to fish so she has to be on Royal canin savour sensations, and wellness canned(because few pet foods dont use fish oil), I've also tried raw but my dad doesnt want me keeping it in the fridge
