Artemis are a Californian company and not as large as some of the other US brands we find on our shores. There’s a single recipe in the Osopure “range” which is a fish recipe, and I’d love to see them offer a chicken recipe as well. Contrary to popular belief, a natural feline diet doesn’t really include fish.
Let’s take a look…
Osopure is grain free so that’s a very good start. Cats don’t need grains, period.
The main ingredients are salmon, salmon meal, and ocean fish meal, which are all really good high protein inclusions. Any cat food should be predominantly meat or fish so the largest box is ticked.
The forth ingredient is a rather unusual inclusion of garbanzo beans, more commonly known as chickpeas. It’s another source of protein as well as fibre, and has nutritional merit for cats despite being vegetable. Peas, found in the 5th spot, are a very similar ingredient, making these two veggie very prominent in the food along with the fish.
Chicken fat is included as one of the best sources of energy and essential nutrients, and flaxseed for a healthy heart, skin, and glossy coat. Chicory root is great for the digestive system as a natural prebiotic. We also find a range of fruits, veggies, vitamins and minerals of good sources, to give a very balanced “holistic” food.
This really is a great food which I find hard to fault. Personally I wouldn’t feed a fish diet exclusively, so it’s worth rotating this with a chicken formula of some sort.
Artemis also offer wet food and fresh mix formulas which are worth checking out.
If this has helped you please take the time to share it to other Australian pet owners. Thank you 🙂
Where to buy?
Superb ingredients, well thought out.
Nothing worth mentioning, but I wouldn’t feed a fish diet exclusively.
