Blue Buffalo dry food
I took Holly to the vet today, since I just got her from a shelter. She is sneezing and has a watery eye.
Anyway, I mentioned that Holly prefers eating dry food to the canned good food I bought her. I am feeding her Blue Buffalo Wilderness.
He said BB is one of the worst foods out there because it's not regulated at all. Basically BB just markets their line of food, and just gives a list of ingredients to the cheapest manufacturer to actually make the food. Supposedly there is no recipe or anything, BB just leaves it up the manufacturer to mix up what ever they want to, even substituting cheaper alternatives if they want to.
Is this true??? I tried googling it but can't get any answers. I don't know who to believe anymore, since everyone seems to have an ulterior motive or marketing ploy.
I don't want to go extreme and feed raw or homemade food, and if Holly won't eat anything but dry, I want to find a high-quality food to feed her.
The vet also told me that the grain-free hype is nonsense... corn, wheat, etc... won't hurt most cats. What do you think?
He recommends Science Diet, Iams or Royal Canin. Because they are all regulated by the government and have to have the ingredients and "recipe" down to a science.
I need some help. I need to go back to the pet store because we are about out of cat food, but I don't know what to get.
