Weruva offers simple recipes with just a few minimally-processed ingredients. When you open up a can or pouch of Weruva, you see real meat—shredded chicken, chunks of fish, and other good-enough-to-eat ingredients. Cats who like table scraps and gravy will love the texture of Weruva cat food.

Weruva cat food is one of  the best gravy cat foods on the market today. This cat food is extremely water-dense, so it has fewer calories per can or pouch than other foods. This both makes it excellent for cats who need to lose weight and more expensive than the average food.

Concerningly, one Weruva brand has been involved in a serious recall. In 2017, cans of B.F.F. (Best Feline Friend) cat food were deficient in thiamine, killing dozens of Australian cats. Thiamine is an essential amino acid for cats. The incident was limited to products sold in Australia and made by a single manufacturing partner.

This chicken-based recipe consists of shredded chicken in a broth thickened with locust bean gum, xanthan gum, and guar gum. These gums aren’t a necessary part of the feline diet, but there’s little indication that they’re harmful.
