Precise Holistic Chicken Adult Formula it is a good dry cat food which balances high concentrated sources of proteins with not very high in proteins ingredients, such as brown rice.
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.
Precise is a very good cat food for a cat maintenance diet, but it does not inform the 11 essential aminoacids in the food’s nutritional analysis.
Very Important Point: Dry cat foods don’t provide enough water consumption 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.
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 aminoacids.
Note: There are several investigations and theories about what’s the best for cats and dogs. Some vets and Institutions recommend dry and moist food, others, just raw meat foods.
If you don’t like dry cat food for your cat’s diet, there are options of raw cat foods.
