Vetalogica Cat Food Review

Vetalogica originated as a pet supplement company circa 2000 when two pharmacists realised many people were incorrectly offering their dogs human vitamins and supplements at incorrect doses. Skip to 2017 and they now offer a range of dry foods for both dogs and cats.

Let’s take a look at the Chicken formula, which I note is very similar in ingredients and composition to the well regarded (yet seemingly problematic) Ivory Coat.

Vetalogica Cat Food Review

Chicken Meal is a fantastic first ingredient, a dense “dried” form of chicken high in protein. The protein percentage of 34% is decent, but slightly misleading as a large proportion of this will come from the peas as the second ingredient. Peas aren’t necessarily bad, but as cats are carnivores it’s not an optimum source of protein.

All dry foods have a binder to hold them together, and in this food we find potato starch. This will account for the carbohydrates in the food which I estimate to be around 36%. Sweet potato would be a better inclusion as it’s lower GI, or even better focus on true carnivore ingredients instead of carbs.

There’s some nice inclusions in the food, such as flaxseed for heart health, skin and coat, as well as fish oil. There’s a range of select fruits and veggies and all necessary vitamins and minerals.

The food as a whole is decent in comparison to most dry cat foods. There are no nasty ingredients, cheap grains, or other fillers.

  1. I received my cat treats today and neither of my cats will even try them. Can I return unopened packets please?
    My cats are real guts for treats…. I have no idea why they won’t touch them.

      Hi Sandra, you would need to contact the store you bought them or Vetalogica. Cats can be picky with new foods though, which is common. From having a quick look at the ingredients of the Vetalogica cat treats (VitaRapid), looks like the four main ingredients are meat, potatoes, peas, and tapioca – so three of those aren’t exactly carnivore ingredients.

  2. Thank you this is very helpful to hear one clear voice.

    • Hi Rosalie just wondering if you have looked at vetlogica hunter valley harvest cat food recently. It seems like they have changed there ingredients.
      Do you think it’s an improvement. Also what rating would you give it now.
      Kind regards
