This chicken recipe paté is similar to the previous formula in that it is primarily composed of chicken and chicken liver. This formula also contains fish, but it doesn’t contain the starchy rice found in the recipe above. Overall, the carb content of this Purina One recipe is lower – around 5% on a dry matter basis.
Not only is this wet food low-carb, but it’s free from the carrageenan used as a thickener in many other low-cost cat foods. It does contain two vaguely named animal ingredients (liver and fish), but all of the main ingredients are animal-based.
Purina ONE cat foods are easy to find in pet stores as well as big box stores and some groceries. If you’re looking for an affordable option and your cat happens to prefer the softer paté-style foods, this chicken recipe could be a good choice.
