best dry food?

What do you think is the best quality dry food? I know that wet is better and one of my kitties is fed wet only, but the other one refuses to eat wet food. I have tried for a couple of years now to switch her but she would rather starve then eat wet only. the only way i get her to eat it is by letting her lick it off my finger but even then she only eats a tiny amount. She eats Stella and Chewy's for her morning meal, then dinner a tiny amount of wet and either go fit and free grain free dry or TOTW rocky mountain. I was hoping to at least find the least carby dry food for her - we tried Orijen she wouldn't touch it. Any suggestions?

How about Arcana? It's made by the same company as Origen but has a little less protein. There's also EVO, I believe it's one of the the lowest in carbs.


Along with the dogs Tara and Coco.

I would look into Innova, EVO, Nature's Variety Instinct, and Wellness CORE.

Go Natural Fit + Free is gonna be the best next to Orijen in my opinion. It has the most meat sources Ive seen on an ingredient list... Theres not another Ive seen that can compete with those two.

I recently found out, Acana is 25% Carb. If Origen is not tasty enough, then I suppose, they won't like Acana. Taste test, most strays I fed wasn't too keen on Acana, including ET, but ET will still eat when there is nothing else, since he still prefers kibbles over wet. But its different with Evo, ET gets all excited over Evo, both flavours and its low in carb but high calorie at 602/cup, and they do come in 1kg bag, which is good when we aren't sure if kitties will eat.

EVO's carb level is 7% (dry matter basis). Go! is more than double at almost 16%.

Thank you for the replies maybe I will give evo a try, we tried acana and she wouldn't touch it either. She does love the go fit and free maybe I can rotate that with evo? How about natures variety?

Taste of the Wild is my dry food choice, but Innova is good too.

I'm a fan of Natures Variety Instinct. My cats used to eat that about a year or two ago. It's a good food also.

I like Nature's Variety Instinct dry twice a day and canned food once a day.
The dry is chicken and the wet food could be anything, duck, lamb, turkey, salmon, ect.
