Recommended wet cat food products by CHOICE

CHOICE has released the results from their wet cat food nutrient test and found snappy cat food claims and premium prices don’t always equal nutritional goodness.

CHOICE cat food nutrient test covered 35 “complete” wet cat foods for key nutrients.  The test results released on 4th August 2016 found popular offerings from Advance, Aldi Silvester’s, Snappy Tom, Gourmet Delight and Coles were among the worst performers.  

Any sample on test scoring 80% or over provides a good balance of tested nutrients. CHOICE has recommended 26 of the 35 products with an overall score of 80% or over.

Pets4Life has reviewed the test results and reveals the list of 26 products recommended by CHOICE for you.  This list below does not include the products worth considering with a score of 70% or more or anything which scored 60% or above, which is considered OK for occasional use.
