applaws dry food alternative?

Post by smokeythecat » Sat Apr 14, 2018 8:03 am

Could anyone recommend a dry food alternative to applaws, there has been lots of complaints about them recently so i think ill change on my next order from zooplus. my cat is still eating it but i get the only one that doesnt have complaints "chicken and duck" so i not sure if he will eat the others since the recipe change. i want a complete dry food that is high meat content and anti hair ball and all that other stuff. basically i want something with all the same good stuff as applaws just more consistently good for around the same price i am willing to pay a bit more per bag though.

have a look at the Porta21 range on Zooplus - unlike other quality foods it comes in smaller bags in case your cat turns his nose up

I buy their tinned chicken which is much preferred by mine to all the other brands despite looking and smelling very much the same

You could try Lilly's Kitchen, which is grain free and supposed to assist with furballs. Tilly quite likes it. Also comes in small packs so kitty can convince you she likes it (until you buy a big pack, of course).

A good food that compares well with Applaws is Zooplus own brand food called Purizon. Mine love it.It has 70% fish and/or meat (depending on flavour) and is cereal-free. Quite expensive,but I guess you get what you pay for and they need less of it as it doesn't have cheap fillers. Might be worth trying the trial packof 3 x 400g bags of different flavours.One of mine will only eat the fish flavour and none of them would eat the lamb flavour. http://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/cats/dry_cat_food/purizon

You could try "Canagan" it is high meat content & grain free, my cat loves it.

I have mine on Arden Grange and they're really happy - get it from Zooplus. Another grain free one which is good

Also depending on the size of your cat - I also have a bowl of Sanabelle (again Zooplus) out for them. It's another hyperallergenic kibble but a bigger one that helps keep teeth clean and is good for hairballs
