There’s something unique about Healthy Everyday Pets cat and dog foods. When you open the bag it actually has the distinctive odour of meat, something which is very uncommon with commercial pet foods. The reason for this is, unlike many, this cat food is actually made mostly from meat. Continue on with our Healthy Everyday Pets cat food review to find out why this is far more species appropriate than the rubbish many cat owners feed…

Healthy Everyday Pets Cat Food Review

Healthy Everyday Pets Cat Food Review

On the Healthy Everyday Pets website they state this food has the highest protein and lowest carbohydrates of any Australian dry food, which is excellent given cats are obligate carnivores. 82% of protein comes from meat sources, and the food as a whole has 20% carbohydrates which is much less than other cat foods. Given the cost of meat ingredients it really goes to show how much they’re pushing for a species appropriate cat food despite reducing profit margins. Or in other words, Healthy Everyday Pets are doing the right thing by your cat, not their pockets.

The two main ingredients which amount to most of the food are chicken meal and turkey meal, and we also find duck meal in the top 5 ingredients. These protein-rich bio-digestible meat ingredients are what your cat needs. We find another animal ingredient in the 6th spot which is chicken oil (the fat constituent), and the 7th ingredient as marine fish oil will do it’s bit in maintaining your cat’s wellbeing, skin, and coat.

I’ll skip back to the 3rd and 4th ingredients which are chickpea flour and tapioca. Chick pea is included in this cat food to balance the calcium from the meat meals to ensure AAFCO compliance, and tapioca is a good choice of kibble binder (to ensure it doesn’t crumble). Many pet foods ramp up ingredients such as these to keep costs down, so it’s really great to see that isn’t the case with this food.

There are some really nice smaller inclusions in the food. Coconut oil is great for healthy skin, joints, and should help with cats prone to hairballs, as are the wonderful green lipped mussels which will help prevent arthritis as well as being an excellent source of omega fats. Turmeric is included as an anti-carcinogenic, and it’s good to see rosemary as a natural antioxidant.

All in all, Healthy Everyday Pets cat food is a very good choice for your furry companion!

We are very happy with this cat food, however we are having trouble buying it. While some may not like Pete Evans for speaking his mind, the fact is this is a great food for your cat. Pete’s knowledge of nutrition is amazing. Hopefully we can find a supplier as my cats love this food. They are healthy with shiny coats.

but 2% salt would be too high that would put cat on the risky of kidney disease. Cats dont need so much salt.

Hi, I’m looking for food to help my cat lose weight. She’s been on the Hill’s Metabolic (my vet’s recommendation) for months and has gained weight! She’s an indoor cat, about four years old. Would the Healthy Everyday Pets be suitable for her?

Cats are obligate carnivores which means high carb diets go undigested by them and they gain weight off them. The lower carb you go the better, this food may help, as the carbs are much lower than in the Hills.

I’d also get your cat onto a wet food to help with hydration and reducing the chance of crystal formation and organ problems later down the track.

Cats only really need meat/organs and some bone, they have zero use for carbohydrates. Look into Orijen and possibly Acana too from Very Pet. Buy the smallest 340g bag to sample if your cat likes the food or not.

I’d also like to add that changing a cats diet can be very problematic, as they are imprint eaters. If they’ve never had a food like this before they may not want it or understand it’s actual food.

You may have to look online how to switch foods if she ends up not wanting it. It can be an unfortunately lengthy process. Good luck.
