Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is Beef. Beef is meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal.

The second ingredient is Beef Broth. Beef broth is the liquid that remains after beef has been cooked. The beef broth in pet food isn’t a major source of nutrients however it does add flavor and aroma to appeal to your companion.

The third ingredient is Pork. Pork is a general term for meat from a domestic pig. In pet food, pork can be an important source of protein, along with other essential nutrients.

The fourth ingredient is Lamb. Lamb is meat from a young sheep. In pet food, lamb may be a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, amino acids, and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is Rabbit. Rabbit is a high-protein, low-fat meat with high vitamin B12 content. In pet food, rabbit can be a source of novel protein, so it is often seen in recipes for pets with allergies.

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% Paleolithic Meat Grain-Free Canned Cat Food.
