    Is it quality food? Don't wanna feed my cat toxins even if free.

      It would be a bad business idea to sell toxic food that kills the thing that eats it

        You would think so, but it's happened to the big brands before. Even humans regularly consume toxins that cause cardiovascular disease and cancer.

          What toxins cause cardiovascular disease?

          • +1 vote

            @lonepine: Regularly consuming fried foods, highly processed meats, high in sugar food. The LDL levels in the cholesterol of those foods don't help

            •  

              @LikeMike: lonepines question was what toxins cause cardiovascular disease.

              None of those foods are toxins.

                It's how your body breaks down the food that has a toxic effect long term. Highly processed beef is categorized as a class 1 carcinogen.

                  Toxic is not the correct word.

                  A toxin is a poison, especially a protein or conjugated protein produced by certain animals, higher plants, and pathogenic bacteria. Usually only a few toxin-producing agents are introduced into the body, and it is not until there are enough of them to overwhelm the leukocytes and other types of antibodies that symptoms occur. In some cases of food poisoning, symptoms are almost immediate because the toxin is taken directly with the food.

                  Highly processed beef is categorized as a class 1 carcinogen

                  Unprocessed meat is also a group 2A carcinogen.

                  The IARC classifications describe the strength of the scientific evidence about an agent being a cause of cancer, rather than assessing the level of risk.

                  It also has nothing to do with being a toxin.

                    Glad we agree! I call anything that directly contributes to high cholesterol, bowel cancer and heart disease as a poison if consumed regularly. It certainly isn't having a positive effect.

                      @LikeMike: I think the amount consumed is also a factor as well as what else is eaten, lifestyle factors, a persons' genetics etc.
                      That moderation rule etc.
                      A dietician/veterinarian can give more information.
                      Cats are obligate carnivores and humans do need easy to assimilate iron from food sources like meat.

      Don't know about the cat food for certain but for dogs it is some of the very best food you can get

    I wish I'd done this before buying a whole bag, because my kitten can't tolerate this food (even blending it in super slowly). (Sometimes the ozbargain life goes wrong: buying the big bag because it's on sale was a bad call.)

      She doesn't like it or vomiting/diarrhoea?

      •  

        Diarrhoea. Not terrible, but soft and lighter colour. And yes, she's fully vet checked and indoor only. Unfortunately I didn't realise until we were past a return time, but it's ok, I don't think it's an inherent problem with the brand, she's just sensitive to something that I haven't worked out (she reacted to two other brands as well, the only brand I've found that she's ok with is Royal Canin). I'll just find someone else with a kitten to give it to.
        Just be smarter than me: make sure your pet is ok with a food before buying $50 worth of it.

        •  

          Call the breeder. Some breeds are more sensitive to certain things

        •  

          Some cats simply can't tolerate dry food at all because there's too many carbs. One of my local vets has such a cat.

            @LlamaFarmer: My Siamese still vomits on occasion.
            I did feed my cat actual cooked chicken breast mashed with a bit of rice.
            Perhaps this could help?
            Also there seems conflicting information on milk for cats/kittens. I just give water.
            Also I keep the kitty litter tray really clean incase this is a problem. Scooping very soon after the cat visits.

            I stopped feeding chicken mince when I learnt tbe fat levels can be too high and my cat would vomit.
            Also only learnt recently NOT to feed cat raw meat!
            This surprised me given the amount of raw kangaroo our other Siamese used to eat.
            Siamese are known for eating things that shouldn't though, like the scratching pole string or sucking on/eating wool-felt.

      Have you wormed her of late ?

      They have a 21 day return policy

    For dog food anyone have a some good cost vs health value food and location. Curenntly getting canidae all life stage 20kg for about $105 off of petcircle which has 4 star rating. Like to go grain free or 5 star for not much more cost. Ivory coat has great rep but expensive as with most grain free.

      I'd like a suggestion on that too.

      • +1 vote

        I haven't paid over $100 dollars for a bag in the 10 months I've been using Ivory coat. I find when it is time for me to rebuy either Petbarn or Petstock is running a sale. If you can get it cheaply over at Petstock it is the better option as they give you a brand credit towards your next bag.

        The best deal I have gotten was 25% off sitewide on an already reduced price, I bought 4 bags for $82.85 each. With the brand cash back of $50 on an again reduced price I just got my newest 13kg bag for only $48.60 AND you get brand cashback on the base price not what you paid from your bank account so that $48.60 bag netted me $14.80 cash back.

        Ivory coat is worth the switch in my opinion. The only brand that has a better dry dog food I can find is the aussie brand Stay Loyal and you can't get a bag of that for under $113 so for now we'll be staying with Ivory Coat.

        Hope my comment helps.

    Pro tip: Grind this up and add a bit to each baby meal to improve their nutrient intake, while also saving money.

    FYI, one per year

    I better buy some tic tacs for my pet.
