Hey guys! I would like to hear dry food suggestions, I am currently living in Peru and here there is not much variety :(
Minerva is 8 months old, has been eating hills k / d (misdiagnosis, long history) but we have been instructed to remove the protein restriction, and start kitten food again.
As expected, her vet recommended us to give her Hills Science Healthy Development.
I can't afford to feed her 100% on a wet diet, but I do 50/50 and that's what I've been doing these months.
My first choice of dry food was Orijen Cat and Kitten or Acana Appalachian, but I have read many negative reviews since it started manufacturing in the USA, kittens that got sick, etc.
These are the brands that I can get:

Here's a very good article on cat nutrition......it covers various foods for kittens and cats and also cats with special health conditions, and near the end of the longer version of the article is a homemade diet for cats one can make. Cats are "obligate carnivores" and their digestive system is not suited to grains. Also, too many prepared dry cat food diets have fruits, and veggies such as peas and squash that are high in carbohydrates and not good for cats. I hope these suggestions are helpful. All the best!!
