Finally made the switch to grain-free!

I finally switched Tina to a grain-free food. I kept meaning to do it but I let her food get too low to transition.

I switched to Blue Buffalo's Freedom Indoor Chicken dry food and she seems to really like it. She was eating Wellness Indoor dry before. The pieces are smaller too.

Here's the ingredients on the new food:
Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal, Turkey Meal, Peas, Potatoes, Pea Starch, Pea Fiber,Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Dried Cellulose, Flaxseed (source of Omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids), Natural Chicken Flavor, Whole Carrots, Whole Sweet Potatoes, Cranberries, Blueberries, Barley Grass, Dried Parsley, Alfalfa Meal, Dried Kelp, Taurine, Yucca Schidigera Extract, L-Carnitine, L-Lysine, Turmeric, Dried Chicory Root, Oil of Rosemary, Beta Carotene, Vitamin A Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B3), d-Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Folic Acid (Vitamin B9), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Calcium Ascorbate (source of Vitamin C), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Iron Amino Acid Chelate, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate, Copper Amino Acid Chelate, Choline Chloride, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate, Salt, Caramel, Potassium Chloride, Dried Yeast (source of Saccharomyces cerevisiae), Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, Dried Bacillus subtilis fermentation product, Dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product
I didn't see anything wrong with the ingredients. It appears to be a better food.

(I know, she should be eating wet food but she won't. I'd rather her eat this than nothing at all. I tried to switch her to wet for months with no success. She would go days without eating in protest. Stubborn cat.)

Have you ever tried Weruva canned food? I have two VERY picky cats who didn't care for canned food at all. But when I opened a can of Weruva they went absolutely NUTS over it. They couldn't get enough of it. This canned food looks and smells like people food. Maybe get a couple cans and see if she likes it.

As for your dry food, it looks ok to me. Hopefully someone who knows more about ingredients will give you better advice.
