At CatFoodDB, we calculate two ratings for each product. These values are then combined to create the the overall product score.
The first rating is based on the product's ingredient list. Each cat food product is assigned a value from (low) to (high) paws. Generally speaking, higher ratings are rewarded to those products that contain quality proteins and limit the amount of cheap fillers in their most plentiful ingredients.
The second rating is based on our analysis of the product's published nutritional information. Higher rated products will contain more protein and fewer carbohydrates than average. Each product is assigned a score from to paws based on this nutritional analysis. Please note that the nutritional values used are only an approximation and may not represent "as fed" values due to variations in manufacturing and the laws that specify how these values are reported.
Finally, the nutrition and ingredient ratings are added together to create a score ranging from 1 - 10 paws for the evaluated product.
Please note that although a high score may be indicative of a higher-quality product it is not a guarantee. Similarly, a low score does not necessarily indicate an inferior product. The best food for your cat is the one that meets their individual needs.
