What are the Pros and Cons of Precise Holistic Formula?
Learning the Pros and Cons of cat food will help you with more information to decide if this formula is what you want for your feline:
- All life stage formula
- No by-products
- Real Meat proteins
- Wholesome carbohidrates
- Balanced fatty acids (Omegas)
- Probiotics and Prebiotics
- Cell protectors for the immune system
- Herbals and botanicals
- Supplements and antioxidants
- GMO-free ingredients
- It informs some of the 11 essential aminoacids cats need in food nutritional analysis.
- It contains brown rice which does not add many proteins.
- Availability to find it in stores.
Precise Holistic Chicken Adult Formula is a good dry cat food that balances high concentrated sources of proteins with not very high proteins ingredients, such as brown rice.
The largest proportional content of cat food is within the first 5 ingredients, however, I consider the first 3 to rate a cat food. This is because the first 3 ingredients show best the quality of the proteins. Considering its 3 main ingredients, the average rate of this cat food it’s 3. Taking down 1/2 of a star because it has carbohydrate in the first ingredients, the final rate it’s 2.5 which is not excellent.
Very Important Point: Dry cat foods don’t provide enough water to cats and they must be complemented with canned wet food and giving cats plenty of water at all times. The cat’s water intake must come from food and water.
Precise Holistic Complete is good cat food for a cat maintenance diet, but it does not inform the 11 essential amino acids in the food’s nutritional analysis and it contains grains (though they are gluten-free grains). With that said;
√ I recommend Precise Holistic formula
- In a mixed diet with dry and wet cat food high in proteins.
- Feeding your cat Precise Holistic Complete Formula “Wild at Heart River Line”, because it’s recommended for cats with candida/yeast problems.
- For a very active cat that needs energy from food.
X I don’t recommend Precise Holistic Dry formula:
- If you don’t want any carbs in your cat’s diet.
- For overweight cats
- For non-active indoor cats
- If you want a cat food containing all the essential amino acids.
