Halo Impulse Rabbit & Garden Greens Recipe Grain-Free Canned Cat Food

I promised you I will keep you updated with my exclusive reviews of recipes that I like and Halo Impulse Rabbit & Garden is one of them. As we know, the wet canned food is a complement of dry food and it adds the hydration that cats need in their diet. Also, it provides the crude source of proteins, although most of the proteins are obtained through dry food.

I made a review of this recipe because it provides the crude source of proteins I want to feed my cat, it adds high quality animal proteins and green and barley that help their digestive system. Let’s see the ingredients:

ANALYSIS OF 5 FIRST INGREDIENTS

Rabbit: Good alternative meat source, cat’s natural prey. 4 stars

Chicken Broth: excellent source of flavor and it’s the best to use instead of plain water. 5 stars

Chicken: excellent source of protein (this ingredient is rated differently in dry food). 5 stars

Chicken Liver: provides good source of iron, necessary for red blood cell production. Too much liver is toxic for cats. 3 stars

Water: It doesn’t provide any nutrition, it helps to provide hydration. 2 stars

 

PROS

√ The recipe is free of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives so your cat will taste the natural flavor.

√ The food provides added vitamins and minerals essential for cats health.

√ The formula is grain-free which is the main guideline I follow with wet food and dry food.

√ The main proteins come from natural cat’s preys, such as rabbit and chicken.

√ Chicken liver doesn’t represent a big proportion in the formula, which I prefer.

√ It doesn’t contain carrageenan

CONS

6th ingredient is dried eggs which is a cheap source of protein (free of shell though).

The consistency of this wet food is like a hard pate (a con only if your cat is used to eating soft juicy wet food)

 

FINAL THOUGHTS

Halo Impulse Rabbit is a good formula, it provides a lot of moisture 78% to the cat’s diet and provides a natural source of protein for cats such as rabbit and chicken. Also, the formula has a very good taste that cats appreciate because it’s been cooked with chicken broth instead water.

If your cat likes to chew on the wet food Halo Impulse Rabbit is the way to go, but if your feline friend is the “licker/lapper” type, maybe it won’t get used to this food because as I said, this recipe is not the broth/gravy/gel type, it has a hard coarse texture.

All in all, this is a very good wet cat food, mainly because it has 3 good sources of crude proteins, liver is not the main protein and it provides the moisture cats need.
