Taste of the Wild has a long standing reputation as a quality pet food, and with a whopping 42% protein and 18% fat you can begin to see why. If you feed your cat a high carbohydrate food they’ll churn through it to get the nutrition they really need, and likely suffer weight gain and poor health in the process. With such a high protein and fat content we are assured there are very minimal carbs – fantastic!

Let’s take a look at the Rocky Mountain Feline formula…

Taste of the Wild Cat Food Review

The food is advertised as Roasted Venison & Smoked Salmon, but the main ingredient is Chicken meal. That’s not a bad thing as chicken is great for cats. Venison and salmon sounds more exotic, so this is more of a marketing strategy to make it sound more appealing to us as consumers.

We can be assured the prime source of protein comes from a highly digestible animal source which is great, but peas as the second ingredient is also dense in protein in a form not as easily digestible for cats.

All dry foods require some form of starch to bind the food, otherwise it will fall apart. In this formula we find sweet potatoes as one of the better carb sources in a pet food. I estimate around 20% carbohydrates which is very low, and this assures us the sweet potato is kept to a minimum.

Next we find chicken fat, an essential ingredient rich in nutrients and a great source of energy. All cat foods should have some kind of animal fat, and chicken fat is good.

From the remaining ingredients we find protein extracted from peas and potato, and also some more meat ingredients such as the venison and salmon we find on the packaging. They’ve also included ocean whitefish meal as another fish source excellent for cats.

All in all the Taste of the Wild feline formulas are some of the best cat foods on the market, and they’ve stood the test of time as a good product. Recommended.
