The girls eat Innova for cats and kittens. I am almost finished with the bulk cans I bought, so I am switching them to grain free.

I was feeding them Taste of the Wild dry and Innova wet twice a day, but my roommate was tasked with buying the food this time and he got innova dry, which is not grain free and the cats do not seem to like it as much as Taste of the Wild as they haven't eaten very much.

Earthborn Holistic Chicken Catcciatori:
Chicken, Chicken Broth, Potato Starch, Sunflower Oil, Guar Gum, Tricalcium Phosphate, Carrageenan, Taurine, Choline Chloride, Potassium Chloride, Ferrous Sulfate, Niacin, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Oxide, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Manganese Sulfate, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Copper Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Biotin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Potassium Iodide.
Swanson Premium Chunk Chicken Breast:
Cooked Chicken Breast Meat, Water, Contains less than 2% of the Following: Modified Food Starch, Salt, Sodium Phosphates.
As you can see, there's a big difference. The cat food has minerals and vitamins added that a cat needs. A mineral/vitamin deficiency can result in a very sick or even dead cat. The canned chicken chunks doesn't have any of this and it has added salt which isn't exactly ideal.

For what it's worth, I did feed low sodium canned chicken chunks to one of my chihuahuas for nearly 6 weeks. I added a lot of Nutrical to it to attempt to provide the necessary nutrients. She refused to eat any dog food at all when I first got her. I'm pretty sure that the people that had her didn't feed her dog food. With some persistence, I did get her to eat kibble by slowly adding it to the chicken. She now happily eats Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural without issue.
