Chicken appears to be the primary protein source in this canned cat food.

This Against the Grain meal is also primarily a chicken-based food. This time, the food is supplemented with pumpkin pureé, a popular cat food additive that may help to reduce constipation and improve overall gut motility.

The first ingredient in the food is chicken, a nourishing source of animal protein. The chicken is shredded and combined with pumpkin, palm oil, tapioca, and xanthan gum. Like most Against the Grain foods, it’s low in fat overall and lacks a significant source of animal-sourced fat.

The food is fortified with vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that make it nutritionally complete and balanced.

Overall, the food is high in protein with low fat and low carbohydrates.

The food has 68 calories in each 2.8-ounce can or 24 calories per ounce.
