Though all animals need protein, cats have an especially higher requirement than many mammals. This is because cat’s metabolism, regardless of activity, breaks down amino acids at a much higher rate. To compensate with this, a higher amount of protein must be provided on a regular diet. This Honest Kitchen recipe contains a blend rich in protein which plays a huge role in the building blocks of the cat’s organs and tissues, as well as feline skin and hair, even in bloodstreams. In addition, this unique dehydrated cat food is ideal for maintaining stronger muscles and tendons.
The Honest Kitchen got creative with their recipe by gently dehydrating and finely dicing their ingredients for easy digestion and maximum nutrient absorption. This process of dehydration allows the recipe to maintain the natural vitamins, phytonutrients, and minerals that help boost your cat’s overall health.
