When feeding your pets, the wet food vs dry food debate continues. There are pros and cons for both, but whatever choice you make, you will want to give your pet a high-quality product.
Wet food usually contains a high percentage of liquid. In cheaper foods that is made up from water. In foods that prioritize flavor and nutrition, that is made up with a meat broth. The latter is the case for Wellness Complete Health Pate, which is 78% moisture which comes from chicken broth. The beauty of broth is that it has been produced by boiling up the carcasses, so it is rich in minerals and taste.
The first ingredients on the recipe list for Wellness Complete Health Pate are chicken, chicken livers and turkey. That’s a good hit of meaty protein that will provide your fur baby with the ingredients they need to stay healthy.
If your pet has a sensitive stomach, then you will want to avoid foods that include wheat. Some cheaper pet foods use wheat, corn and other high-carbohydrate ingredients to bulk out their food and increase the calorie content.
Wellness Complete Health Pate doesn’t do this. It’s grain-free. There is fiber to help your cat’s digestion, but that comes from ground flaxseed which is also a great source of omega 3 oils which are good for your pet’s coat. The food is thickened with natural gums rather than wheat, so you don’t lose any of that pate texture that cats enjoy.
Wellness Complete Health Pate has an impressive array of added vitamins and minerals. That vital element, taurine, ranks high on the ingredient list. It’s also joined by cranberries, packed with antioxidants, to promote health.
If you feed your cat on a wet food, then Wellness Complete Health Pate Chicken Entree Grain-Free Canned Cat Food ticks all our boxes for a quality product. If your kitty loves it too, then you’re in luck!

To avoid upsetting your cat’s stomach, you should gradually introduce any new food. If you are switching to Wellness Complete Health Pate from any other brand, begin by adding no more than ¼ of a portion of the new food to their regular bowl. Slowly increase the proportion of Wellness Complete over a two week period until your pet is happily eating only the new food.
