Ingredient Review

Our review of Hound & Gatos 98% Duck & Liver Formula Grain-Free Canned Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Duck. Duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, duck can serve as a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein, and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.

The second ingredient is Duck Broth. Duck broth is made by boiling duck meat, skin, and bones to obtain nutrients including fat, vitamins, and minerals. When added to pet food, duck broth increases moisture and improves flavor.

The third ingredient is Duck Liver. Duck liver is one of a few organ meats that come from a duck. In pet food, duck liver serves as a source of protein, iron, and amino acids. It can be a source of novel protein in recipes formulated for pets with allergies.

The fourth ingredient is Agar-Agar. Agar-agar is a flavorless gelling agent made from algae. In pet food, agar-agar is used to improve texture or as a replacement for gelatin.

The fifth ingredient is Potassium Chloride. Potassium chloride is a form of potassium, which helps your pet’s entire body function properly. In pet food, potassium chloride supports healthy blood pressure, neural function, metabolism, muscle function, organ function, bone health, and more.

After the fifth ingredient, the list includes all remaining ingredients. It’s worth noting that ingredients (other than nutritional supplements) located this far down on the list aren’t likely to have an impact on the overall rating of this Hound & Gatos 98% Duck & Liver Formula Grain-Free Canned Cat Food.
