Eagle Pack are one of our American imports, being shipped all the way from Indiana. They also make Holistic Select, so don’t get confused between the two. Eagle Pack are a big company worldwide, and their dog food is the official formula for the 1,161 mile Iditarod dog sled race in Alaska. That doesn’t mean much to us though, and I can’t see any of our cats taking part in a race like that.
This review is for Eagle Pack Original Adult, but the other formulas are similar.
Chicken Meal is the main ingredient, which is a sign of a quality food, but we have to take into account peas are also dominant and will contribute a large portion of the 32% protein. Cats find meat protein far easier to digest than pea protein, and given there’s no other meat content in the food we really need to take note of this. It might be more suitable to an older, less active, or indoor cat.
The grains are decent choices, with oatmeal and barley being some of the best grains available. Brewers dried yeast is an unfortunate inclusion as it does little for a cat. It’s a waste product from the beer brewing industry, probably Budweiser.
The ingredient list is solid, with all vitamins and minerals included, with some fruits and veggies for good measure. This is what we’d expect from a decent manufacturer. It’s a decent food, and good value for money. I’ve given it 4 star but it’s a low 4 star due to the lack of meat content.
If this has helped you please take the time to share it to other Australian pet owners. Thank you 🙂
Where to buy?
Chicken meal as the main ingredient, good choice of grains.
Grain heavy, peas will bulk up the protein.
