Ingredient Review

Our review of Fancy Feast Chicken Feast in Gravy Minced Senior 7+ Canned Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Chicken Broth. Chicken broth is made by boiling chicken meat, skin, and bones to obtain nutrients including fat, vitamins, and minerals. In pet food, chicken broth increases moisture and improves flavor.

The second ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The third ingredient is Wheat Gluten. Wheat gluten is a good source of digestible protein. In pet food, wheat gluten is used as a binding agent and texturizer as well as a protein source.

The fourth ingredient is Liver. Liver is a general name for a protein-rich organ meat from any animal. The liver in pet food can be a source of important minerals including zinc, copper, iron, and selenium, but depending on its source, can be of low quality.

The fifth ingredient is Meat By-Products. The meat by-products in pet food may be organs such as liver, kidneys, lungs, heart, and more, as well as meat left over from butchering. While meat by-products include offal that isn’t meant for human consumption, it may not contain hooves, horns, teeth, or animal hides.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Fancy Feast Chicken Feast in Gravy Minced Senior 7+ Canned Cat Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.

Nutritional Analysis

As opposed to formulas intended for growth (kitten) and maintenance (adult), there are no special label requirements or legal definitions for “senior” diets. Senior diets are actually only required to meet the same nutritional needs as for adult diets. This means that there can be a lot of variation and interpretation by different food companies on what makes up a senior diet. Senior diets can have varying amounts of protein, fat, carbs, phosphorus, sodium, and fiber.

The assumptions that all senior pets need low protein, low fat and carbs, low phosphorus and sodium, and high fiber across the board are incorrect. The need for higher or lower levels of these nutrients varies greatly from cat to cat. That’s why it’s very important for senior pets for their pet parents to work with their veterinarian to decide what type of diet is most appropriate. For many young senior pets, the adult diets they’ve been on may be just fine to continue.

    I adopted a shelter cat who has stomatitis. She can only eat this food without being in severe pain. Where can I find it in stock? ( Under 50.00 for a case)

    • Doron Wolffberg

      Hi Dawn,

      It looks like the food is available on Walmart.

      You can see the link on our Compare Prices To Find The Lowest Price section.

      Hope this helps
