ANALYSIS OF FIRST 5 INGREDIENTS OF FROMM GAME BIRD RECIPE:

(4.0/5) Duck: Good alternative protein source. It adds less water in weight than chicken. 4 stars

(5.0/5) Duck Meal: Concentrated source of protein. 5 stars

(4.0/5) Pea Protein: Good vegetable protein. 4 stars

(2.0/5) Turkey: Does not offer high level of protein. It adds water in muscles, weighing more. 2 stars

(3.0/5) Dried Whole Egg: Good source of protein. The egg yolk is the highest known source of Choline, essential to disperse cholesterol throughout the cat’s system and support brain and liver functions. Whole eggs include shells but is not hard to digest when they are made a very fine powder. 3 stars

 

What are the Pros and Cons of Fromm Game Bird Recipe?

  • 35% of crude proteins
  • Tasty mix of birds meat

CONS 

  • It does not inform the 11 essential aminoacids cats need in the food’s nutritional analysis.
  • Pea protein is the third ingredient on the list. It could be a little further down on the list. Though, it’s one of the best vegetable source of proteins.
  • Price

 

CONCLUSION

Fromm Game Bird Recipe is a good cat food with a tasty mix of birds. However, the third ingredient on the list it’s pea protein which is a good source of vegetable protein but it could be further down on the list.

Considering the first 3 ingredients, this cat food has an average rate of 4.3 stars. Taking down 1/2 of a star because one of the ingredients it’s a carbohydrate (pea) the average final rate it’s 3.8 which is excellent for a cat dry food with carbs.

The formula is very good for active cats and a good choice for people who want to feed their cats a meat- based cat food but not a highly meat concentrated cat food.

Important: Dry cat foods are not sufficient for a healthy cat diet and they must be mixed with canned wet food and giving your cat plenty of water at all times.

Fromm Game Bird Recipe is a very good cat food and it is recommended for outdoor cats or active indoor cats.

Very good cat food for maintenance, but it informs 1 of 11 essential aminoacids cats need in the food’s technical analysis (taurine).

    Amino acids in this food, does it have them all?

  2. Katie Vance says:

    Mt cat only eats dry food and drinks lots of water, she has a can of food once in a while and she is perfectly healthy. My cat doesn’t like most wet foods.

  3. Maddie says:

    What brand of food will be better for our 5 month old male kitten. He is active and lean. I am trying to decide between Fromm and Acana? Also does it matter which formula/flavor matter among the two brands? Should dry and wet food come from the same brand? First time kitten owner.

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi Maddie, for your kitten I suggest you Petcurean and Acana grassland. However, since you have a kitten I wouldn’t suggest the new Acana formula because it uses chicken giblets that I think it’s more appropriate for adult cats. I would suggest you to feed your cats with Petcurean and see how they do with it. What I personally do is mixing Petcurean with Fromm but you may not want to buy an extra bag of cat food. The reason why I choose to mix is the kibble shape of Fromm forces my cat to chew more which is good for her teeth. Petcurean kibble is round and small. Regarding the question of the same brand of dry and wet food, the answer is NO. You can choose the best of each brand for your cat. Remember to give your cat lots of fresh water specially since your kitten is a male. Also don’t overfeed him dry food, try to give him more percentage of wet food.

    I have been feeding my 7yr old male cat this variety of Fromm for about 3-4 years now, his coat is shiny and his health is excellent. The problem with this food is it spoils very quickly, about 1/2 through the bag he starts shunning it and by the final 1/4 he really protests to the point thatbI often have to dispose of it. I can detect a strong, unplesant change in the smell, I can only imagine what it smells like to him…
    Closing the bag tightly, re-bagging it in ziplocs and using an air-tight container all help (if you leave the bag open overnight, it will spoil by morning) but given the cost of this food, this is a real problem, especially since I have moved to an automatic feeder.
    I need to find an alternative, any recommendations? He is very good about water consumption and shuns most wet food. (He’ll lick off the “juice” and leave the “food”.)

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      I recommend you Petcurean, it`s the dry food I use with my cat Sophie and she has been doing great since she started eating it last year. You`re right about Fromm, it`s a really good dry cat food but it needs to be sealed when temperature is warm.
