Cat food tested by Kassensturz – the top scorers are now available at Galaxus

Last October, Swiss consumer magazine Kassensturz put different kinds of wet food for cats to the test. From chicken to rabbit to beef to turkey: The majority contained too many minerals that can damage your cats’ kidneys.

The majority of the tested wet foods contained high levels of calcium and phosphorus. Both minerals can have long-term negative effects on a cat’s health. Large quantities of calcium, for example, could mean that your furry friend is deficient in zinc, copper or iron. What’s more, excessive consumption of phosphorus can lead to kidney damage.

«I’m not touching that!» – keep your cat healthy.

The cat food was tested for nutrients (crude protein, crude fat, crude fibre, crude ash), minerals (calcium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, potassium, chloride), vitamins (vitamins A, E, D3) and trace elements (iron, copper, manganese, zinc, selenium, iodine). Furthermore, the Technical University of Munich investigated the amount of total sugars as well as the amount of cell-protecting amino acid taurine. Click here to view the complete test (in German).

You are what you eat: Even your four-legged friend knows that.

Rated «good»

The following two products were rated excellent regarding trace elements and nutrients, satisfactory for minerals, good (Purina One) and excellent (Felix) for vitamins. Purina One got penalty points for its somewhat high total sugar content. Both manufacturers use sugar to make the food visually more appealing. With the Felix brand, only the chicken flavour was tested.

When I'm not stuffing my face with sweets, you'll catch me running around in the gym hall. I’m a passionate floorball player and coach. On rainy days, I tinker with my homebuilt PCs, robots or other gadgets. Music was my first love, cooking is my second: I’m a real foodie and love trying out new recipes. I also enjoy travelling to exotic places, tackling hilly terrain on my road bike and criss-crossing the country on my cross-country skis.

Leider verträgt eine meiner Katzen kein Feuchtfutter, oder ich habe noch nicht das passende gefunden.. Das hat aber auch Vorteile, da Feuchtfutter oft einen unangenehmen Duft hat.
