Ingredient Analysis

When evaluating a cat food, the first five ingredients can tell you a lot about the quality of a product as they make up the bulk of the product. Ideally, you're looking for quality protein sources with a minimum of cheap starches, fillers or by-products. Continuing down the ingredient list, look for ingredients that resemble real food with a minimal number of unpronounceable chemicals - the same as you would for human food.

Purina Pro Plan Focus Adult Urinary Tract Health Formula Classic Entree With Salmon includes the following:

Quality Ingredients

  • salmon

Questionable Ingredients

  • meat by products
  • chicken by-products
  • rice
  • guar gum
  • carrageenan

Potential Allergens

  • salmon
  • red 3

Note - a bolded ingredient in the above tables indicates it is one of the first five ingredients listed by the product manufacturer.

Although not the first product listed (which is the most plentiful), Purina Pro Plan Focus Adult Urinary Tract Health Formula Classic Entree With Salmon does contain with its top ingredients salmon which are considered quality protein sources. In this case, Purina Pro Plan Focus Adult Urinary Tract Health Formula Classic Entree With Salmon's first ingredient listed (and hence the most plentiful) is meat by products which is considered an inferior ingredient.

*Note that some nutritional percentages reported are only estimated values, and are indicated as such as (est). Each cat food manufacturer is required by law to publish a Guaranteed Analysis, which defines each product's maximum values of fiber, moisture and ash in addition to the minimum values of protein and fat contained within. Exact nutritional percentages are not available and hence all calculated values (including carbohydrate percentages and calorie amounts) are determined using these minimum and maximum published values and therefore may differ from actual values.

Although a high score may be indicative of a higher-quality product it is not a guarantee. Similarly, a low score may or may not indicate an inferior product. The best food for your cat is the one that meets their individual needs.
