Default Know of Corn-free Dry Cat Food?

I have been searching for a Dry cat food that is CORN FREE-- no corn products whatsoever. The only one I found was Innova-- and I can't find anywhere in town that carries that. Does anyone else know of a CORNFREE dry cat food?

A plus would be a grain-free dry cat food, but I am more concerned about corn at the moment...

Default corn free dry food

hi
natural Balance (by dick van patten of all people lol) is corn free- it has brown rice and potatoes

Purina One sensitive system is made with turkey and rice, no corn

i have two cats who are allergic to wheat, corn, etc so its very hard to find food for them

i am trying to wean them off of all dry and just have them eat canned but its hard, they like their crunchy kibble!!

good luck
(ps you can get Natural Balance and Purina One at Pet food direct online- also if you do not wish to buy cat food online, but want to find grain free or corn free cat food, they list the ingredients of all the foods they sell, and they sell a LOT of brands, so its worth checking them out just to see what you can find that you may be able to buy locally)

Another corn-free dry cat food: California Natural
Good quality. Made with chicken and brown rice. The first ingredient is chicken.

I *think* some of the Wellness are corn free.
If you can find Wellness, California natural, ect.... that store should be able to order Innova for you.
Innova EVO is the grain-free dry food. It's fairly new, so not all stores are carrying it yet, but you can ask for it to be ordered.
Here is a link to Innova to find a store near you.

To the best of my knowledge, all Wellness dry formulas are corn, wheat, and soy-free. All of Natura's cat foods (Innova, Evo, California Naturals, Healthwise) are corn-free (and Evo is grain-free), as are Natural Balance, Felidae, and (I think) Solid Gold (someone check me on that one). I am also pretty sure that Chicken Soup for the Cat Lovers' Soul is corn-free (I have personal misgivings about CS food, but many swear by it, and I'm almost positive it's corn-free). I'm not sure about Newman's Own, but I know some here feed it and could say for sure.

Yes, Chicken Soup is corn free, I've been feeding it to my cats for a few months & they like it & are doing good on it.

Ingredients:
Chicken, Salmon, chicken meal, whole grain brown rice, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), oatmeal, whole grain white rice, potatoes, cracked pearled barley, millet, turkey, duck, flaxseed, natural chicken flavor, salt, choline chloride, chicory root extract, dl-methionine, potassium chloride, taurine, carrots, peas, apples, dried skim milk, kelp, cranberry powder, rosemary, parsley flake. Vitamins and minerals.


They were previously on Nutro Natural Choice Complete Care Indoor Adult Cat formula, but I didn't like that it contained Corn Gluten Meal as the 3rd ingredient so I switched them to CS.

I'm sure that there are foods that are better than CS, but living in a small town in Louisiana, I look for what is available locally (shipping is too expensive). Also with 6 cats, I also have to consider the price & Chicken Soup is very affordable.

Thank you everyone! you have given me a lot to go on-- I am thinking of switching my cat to a grain free food, preferrably corn free at least.
