Analysis Of Leading Cat Foods

1252 words - 5 pages

Meow Mix, Friskies, Whiskas, and Science Diet which cat food is the best for your cat? Most people determine their pet's food by the value of money instead of the value to the cat. Cat food plays an extremely important role in a cat's life, and it is up to the owner to establish the right food for their pet. Normally I buy generic brands; however, when it comes to my cat's food I do not. In order to find the best cat food I compared several different brands.MY CRITERIA Price (10 points): The cat food should be a reasonable price, rationable with the bag size. It should not exceed more than $8.00 per six pound bag, or $15.00 per eighteen pound bag.Availability (10 points: 5 if only at one location, 10 for both locations): Are you forced to buy the cat food from pet stores or are they found at local grocery stores? Nutritional Value (20 points): The food must contain taurine, or it looses all possible points. Taurine is an amino acid in animal food that lowers blood pressure, clears cholesterol from the body, and protects the heart; it is the most vital nutrient. The food should also contain an adequate supply of other nutrients, and be free of by-products. Recommended feeding dosages should be listed on the bag to prevent over and under feeding. Per veterinarian the vitamins and minerals I am looking for are: Manganese, A, D, K, B1, B6, E, B12, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folic Acid, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Sodium, Chlorine, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Iodine, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, and Phosphorus. The ideal brand should not use any artificial preservatives. Variety (10 points: 5 for different formulas, 5 if they make a canned food): The brand should offer options such as: kitten formula, indoor and outdoor formula, hairball relief, diet type, and other flavors to choose from. Bag size (5 points): The bag must range in sizes. Ideal brands should range from six pound bags to eighteen pounds. Listed below are the results from best to worst: Iams Iams offers a wide variety of flavors, formulas, wet food, and bag sizes. There are three different bag sizes and the prices are all reasonable. The smallest bag is four pounds and it cost $7.99, then there is an eight pound bag for $13.99 and the largest bag is twenty pounds for $24.99. The first ingredient is chicken, there are no by-products, artificial preservatives, and it includes all of the listed nutrients along with taurine. Access to this brand is not limited you may purchase it at all of the local grocery stores, tractor supply stores, and pet stores.Price: 10; Availability 10; Nutritional Value 20; Variety 10; Bag size 5.Total: 55/55 Science Diet You can only purchase this brand from pet stores.
