Ingredient Review

Our review of Royal Canin Feline Health Nutrition Indoor 7+ Morsels In Sauce Wet Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Water Sufficient. In pet food, the term water sufficient typically refers to the amount of water that is needed to process the rest of the ingredients.

The second ingredient is Chicken By-Products. The chicken by-products in pet food are defined as dry, ground, parts of the chicken carcass that have been rendered clean. Most pet food companies use chicken by-products such as liver, kidney, heart, and gizzard, which are sources of protein and other nutrients. Some do include chicken by-products like feathers, bones, and beaks, all ground up and unidentifiable.

The third ingredient is Chicken By-Product Meal. In pet food, chicken by-product meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken by-product meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken parts that might not be used for human consumption including necks, feet, entrails, and undeveloped eggs.

The fourth ingredient is Pork Liver. Pork liver is organ meat from swine. The pork liver in pet food is a source of protein, iron, and many other nutrients.

The fifth ingredient is Corn Flour. Corn flour is made with dried or roasted kernels from any corn species. In pet food, corn flour can be a filler as well as source of inexpensive protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Royal Canin Feline Health Nutrition Indoor 7+ Morsels In Sauce Wet 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.

With that in mind, we’ve compared Royal Canin Feline Health Nutrition Indoor 7+ Morsels In Sauce Wet Cat Food to the other 43 wet senior cat food recipes in our database:
