Dry food has fillers and the fillers are usually rice or grains and these foods are carbohydrates which are not good for cat that are carnivorous. I was told to change my cats diet to a high protein, low fat and low carbohydrate food with no grains, soy or corn. A pate food is better than a gravy formula, because gravy usually has a thickening agent and this will cause the carbohydrates and fat to increase.
So I began my search at Pet Smart and found many grain free foods that had high protein and low fat, none of the foods gave me a breakdown for the carbohydrates. I wrote the name of the foods and called the manufactures to get the nutritional breakdown and to find out the percentage of carbs.
Here is a list of high protein, low fat and very low carbohydrate canned foods.
Natures Variety Instinct
Chicken 10% protein 6.5% fat 2.13 Carbohydrate
Duck 9% protein 5.5 fat 1.82 Carbohydrate
Rabbit 10% protein 4.5 fat 1.26 Carbohydrate
Venison 11.9% protein 6.0 fat 0.00 Carbohydrate (BEST Food)
Beef 11% protein 5.5 fat 1.58 Carbohydrate
