Dear Fellow Cat Lover,

After nearly two decades of offering just one cat formula, we are now excited to introduce our second formula: the Grain Free Cat Diet!  One question we have repeatedly gotten through the years is why only one cat formula?  The reason was quite simple, the original Cat Diet worked so well, for so many different cats and kittens, with so many different health needs, we never felt it necessary to develop another.  But after hearing from an increasing number of pet parents looking for a Best Breed grain free option, in 2014 we got to work and embarked on creating the perfect no grain cat formula!  In developing this formula we used much of what we had learned from the original formula, more specifically fiber and how it works in promoting digestive health.  By late-2014 we finalized the Grain Free Cat Diet with great success!

Like all of our grain free formulas, this diet is developed without potatoes and instead uses healthful grain alternatives such as peas, lentils and chickpeas.  We also start the formula off with lots of meat from high protein, low-ash chicken and whitefish, followed by blueberries and cranberries, which are high in antioxidants.

Like all of Best Breed’s Recipes, the Grain Free Cat Diet was developed with the “common sense” idea that a healthy cat begins with a truly super premium food, made with only the highest-quality ingredients. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions regarding Best Breed’s Grain Free Cat Diet.

It is important to remember that your cat’s nutritional needs are unique and will vary with her environment, age and activity level. We recommend feeding to condition, this means using the following guide as a starting point, monitoring her weight and adjusting amounts accordingly. Feeding at least twice a day is optimal. Make sure fresh, clean water is available always.
