PETCUREAN Go! Fit + Free Grain-Free Chicken Formula – Full Review

Petcurean Go! Fit Grain-Fre Formula

Petcurean Go! Fit Grain-Fre Formula


PETCUREAN Go! Fit + Free Grain-Free is a meat based dry cat food containing a good amount of meat protein (48%) and zero grains.

The formula contains the natural source of energy for cats which are meat proteins and fat, but not too much fat that will make the cat overweight.

The main source of meat is chicken, also adding turkey and duck; further down the list, trout and salmon.

Protein is high on this recipe because chicken meal has been labeled as the first ingredient. Chicken meal is pure concentrated proteins because the water has been extracted by cooking the meat with high temperature. Additionally, de-boned ingredients give cats the crude source of proteins they need; giving them a good balance of meat proteins.

The formula also includes fresh garden vegetables, farm-grown fruits and human grade oils rich in essential fatty acids, Omega-6 and Omega-3.

The recipe is lower in carbohydrate than common grain-free formulas. Also, cats will need a lower intake of this food because they’ll be satisfied with less amount.

PETCUREAN Go! Fit + Free Grain-Free is available in 0.5lb, 4lb, 8lb, and 16lb bag sizes

Now with Velcro zipper



(5.0/5) Chicken meal: Excellent source of proteins for cats. It’s pure concentrated chicken meat because water has been extracted when cooked. 5 stars.

(3.0/5) De-boned chicken: They’re mostly muscles that have about 84% water, lowering the real proteins in total weight. However, it has been listed as second ingredient. 3 stars

(3.0/5) De-boned turkey: contains water in meat (muscles), adding weight to the formula, which means less protein nutrition. Chicken has better proteins than turkey, however, turkey is a much better third ingredient than peas or any other type of carbohydrates commonly found in grain-free formulas. 3 stars

(5.0/5) Duck meal: Good alternative protein source. Duck meal it’s pure concentrated proteins. 5 stars

(4.0/5) Turkey meal: As “meal” means turkey has more concentrated proteins. 4 stars.

PETCUREAN Go! Fit + Free Grain-Free Chicken Formula is a well balanced meat-based dry cat food because it adds different sources of meat proteins such as chicken, turkey, duck, salmon, trout and it also contains chicken fat, with is an essential source of energy for cats.

It’s important to mention that this formula has a very high ratio of proteins with 48% and for this reason you need to feed your cat with a small amount of this dry food (see the chart on this review) and complement with wet food in its diet. Additionally, you must provide your cat plenty of fresh water at all times.

Chicken and duck are excellent sources of protein for cats, while turkey it is a good third ingredient, because it adds proteins to the formula and not carbohydrates, which is commonly found in grain-free formulas. They usually list “peas” or “potato” as third ingredient.

The formula rates average 3.6 stars considering its 3 first ingredients. This is a very good cat food, informing the 11 essential aminoacids cats need.

Petcurean Go! Fit + Free Grain-Free Formula is an excellent cat food that requires you to feed your cat the right amount due to its high percentage of proteins. I feed my cat this food and I recommend it.

  1. Kali says:

    Thank you for your great reviews! This is so helpful. I’m looking for a new cat food for my kitty & am going to try this one out!

  2. Kevin says:

    My 8 month old Russian Blue cross absolutely loves this food.Heard about it from an Aunt who’s vet told her it was one of the better foods available.Also my cat is a very picky eater so it must taste good.

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Thanks for your comment Kevin, this one is my cat’s favorite as well 😉

  3. Tanya says:

    What pet stores can I find this amazing food ?

  4. Tanya says:

    There is also another question:
    Is this food suitable for those cats who have renal insufficiencies/failure?
    I’ll certainly mix it with water or can food.

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi again! I could not suggest any type of dry food for cats with renal insuffiencies/failure because it needs to be recommended by a Vet. Thanks for your question Tanya.

  5. Emily says:

    How do I mix this dry food with wet food? How much do I mix of each? half and half? And how often will I have to feed my kitten? He is almost 2 pounds. Also, what type of wet food do you recommend to mix with this dry food? Thank you.

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hello Emily, you need to feed your kitten 1/6 to 1/4 cup a day. This amount is recommended for kittens that weigh between 2-5 lb. I Personally don’t mix the wet food with the dry food, I give my cat a mix diet but without mixing the foods. For example, I give my cat dry food at 7am, dry food a 3 pm, wet food at 5pm, and dry food at night. The wet food I use for my cat is Wellness Healthy Indulgence, I use Turkey & Chicken and Chicken, Duck & Shrimp. You can check this wet food here.

      My cat is healthy and not overweight at all, but what I also do is playing with her, I am constantly buying her new toys for her to keep moving and I provide fresh filtered water in a bowl at all times. Make sure to do that too. You can check some of the cat toys I’ve bought for my cat in my YouTube channel and see her reaction with each.

      • Emily says:

        Thank you very much for your reply! 🙂

        • Emily says:

          Another question! I see that it says 1/4 cup a day, and that’s a very small portion to try to separate through out the day. How many times should I feed my kitten in a day then if he is only allowed 1/4 cup of food. Thank you 🙂

          • Lorena Ávila says:

            Hi Emily, you can feed your kitten a little more if you want, but this cat food is high in proteins and that’s why that intake is recommended. You can feed your cat up to 3 Oz of wet cat food as well, complementing the dry diet.

  6. Alice says:

    Hi! This website is amazing! Many thanks for doing all this! I have a question, is this food suitable for cats with a sensitive stomach (I have a very sensitive maine coon)… Thanks, Alice

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi Alice! I don’t think so since it has fish in the ingredients. Most of the cat foods on this list are suitable for healthy cats. If your cat doesn’t have any digestive issues you can try Halo Spot’s Stew Cat Grain-Free Chicken and see if your cat likes it.

  7. Alice says:

    Hi Lorena, many thanks for your quick answer! sorry I didn’t see it earlier! My cat doesn’t have digestive issues, but he is delicate and some foods give him vomit or diarrhea. Unfortunately I am based in London and I have seen that they don’t sell the Halo Spot’s Stew Cat Grain-Free Chicken in the UK:( Why fish is not good for sensitive cats? Thanks again,Alice

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi Alice! fish in reality is not that great for all cats but it’s ok if small amounts in the recipe, but fish is particularly not good for cats with sensitive stomach because most of these reactions of vomit and diarrhea are a symptoms of allergy of foods. Generally these foods are fish and dairy.

      • Alice says:

        Hi! Many thanks for all the explanations! What do you think of the ACANA Wild Praire one? Sorry to ask so many things! Alice

        • Lorena Ávila says:

          Hello Alice! I haven’t done an in-depth review of this cat food but I will soon.

  8. Vee says:

    I am planning on switching my cats to Petcurean and I notice you say that cats should be also fed wet food. Is their a wet food you recommend? What is the minimum amount of wet food they should be given in a week?

    Thank you,

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi Vee, I feed my cat Petcurean about 60% of daily food intake and 40% wet food. This amounts are daily. The wet food I can recommend because I use it with my cat and she does really good with is Wellness Healthy Indulgence (Turkey, the green pouch). The limit of wet food with my cat is 40% and I suggest you the same with yours. She also drinks lots of water.

  9. Lisa Farmer says:

    Hi! I have multiple cats and 2 are overweight and one is not. It is hard to keep the overweight one from moving on to other bowls. It can be a production to try to separate them all. What would be the percentage and amounts of dry vs wet food to give them? They are indoor only cats.

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi Lisa, cats are different and what it works for one cat may not work for the other. Personally I feed my cat who is a female, weighing 8 pounds, 50% dry food and 50% wet food. She likes to drink water so that isn’t a problem. I feed her approximately 42g dry food and 42g wet food. She doesn’t eat very much, she is an indoor cat and even though I play with her a lot, she doesn’t need too much food and she is happy and healthy with those amounts, but like I told you, what works for her not necessary works for your cats. It’s a job to figure out the best portions for each cat to keep them at a healthy weight and happy. Playing daily with them is a major factor.
