Amanova food for cat review?
I live in a pretty remote Canary Island and, after trying all the high-quality pet food available here, I found what I think it's an excellent food for my one-year-old, sterilized cat. I give him both wet and dry food from a brand called Amanova, suggested to me by the largest pet shop available here (buying online here is almost impossible!). However, I couldn't find any review regarding this brand, neither here or elsewhere.
The ingredients seem good and my cat Merlino literally loves it, more than any other brand I tried. In the wet one, they declare there are just animal ingredients (like chicken fillets, prawns, surimi, etc.) water and "gel", nothing else. And unlike others, you can really see the texture. However, on the cans' label, they wrote "Feed in combination with complete dry food (85% daily requirement)". They also call it "Complementary natural food for cat", that looks suspicious to me. Can you please tell me why? Maybe just because a wet-only, pure animal ingredients diet is not balanced?
I also kind ask you if possible to review the food, just to ensure I am not feeding Merlino with something bad.
Many thanks in advance for this excellent website.
Hello! Yes, it sounds like that food is nutritionally incomplete (not fortified with all the nutrients your cat needs in their complete diet). A treat like this should not be more than 15% of your cat's diet. I looked on the Amanova website, and I can see that they do offer some nutritionally complete wet foods that your cat may prefer. Their fish and turkey recipe for sterilized cats, for instance, may suit your cat's fancy. Hope this helps!
