I know a lot of people prefer to buy the larger bags of pet food because they normally work out cheaper. At the moment Tesco have reduced the 1kg bags from £4.98 to £3, so 15kg (the big sack size) would cost £45 - cheaper than any of the online pet-food suppliers I've found. If you don't mind lots of small bags, which have the advantage of keeping the food fresher, this is a good price.

Just to let anyone know who lives near one - my local B&M Bargains have the small bags of IAMS & IAMS Wellness (950g/1kg) for £1.79 in Chicken and Salmon. They used to have the big bags (3kg - I think) for £5 but they seem to have run out of them for now.

Iams Kitten food is actually a very bad, poor quality food for cats. It has by-products which are meat left-overs. It also has corn which cats can't digest properly and it's bad for their tummies. If your concern is the cost of food, feeding bad quality foods will actually cause MORE expenses down the road when your kitty gets sick and you have to take him/her to the Vet.

its little better than the cheap rubbish like go-cat, friskies etc.

I have been using Royal Canin - £36 for 8kg delivered

gonna have to do a bit of research to find out which is best (I think wellbeloved comes out top)

+1much better with Hills Science Diet IMO much better for the cat


which one as most of that stuff is worse than iams!

e.g. Feline adult dry has brewers rice as the main ingredient followed by maize :w00t:. This stuff is terrible for cats.

Your vet will recommend whatever he can get the most commission on in some cases. Mine recommeneded royal canin but have found out it is really bad for cats as has corn in it and ash as bulking agents which cause havoc to a ctas digestive system.

being obligate carnivores, rice is certainly not suitable.

that orijen stuff above looks to be really good so will research that further using my friend google.

thanks for that i will buy from there now on. I do find this wet food good as well tho bozita

yes, but my cat helps himself to peas, cheese, sultanas, cooked carrot, soya yoghurt, sunflower seeds. Not in huge portions but a nibble here and there.

I really find unsubstanciated statements like this annoying. They're based on chinese whispers rather than fact. I'm sure that when cat food producers are creating a cat food they spend millions on research, dietricians advice and testing

perhaps if you did your own research you would find out the truth :whistling:

did you even click on ]iamscruelty.com or catinfo.org/ ?

Thought not, probably too complex for you.

and any muppet knows that rice (i.e carbohydrates) is very bad for a cat! :roll:

iamscruelty.com!?. i bet that's a balanced, level headed web site. And who says carbs are bad for cats... where's your evidence? you're just quoting sound bites from urban myths without any proof or back up.
it's obvious you're passionate about cats but dont allow this to blinker your opinions.

I guess this is another "urban myth" from the American Vetinary Society

[LIST]
[*]Protein—cats require twice as much protein as dogs because protein (not carbohydrates) fuels their cells with energy. Cats have specific protein requirements (taurine, etc) that come only from meat and are essential for heart, eye and muscle health. Deficiency in these proteins can cause severe illness and even death.
[*]Carbohydrates—[COLOR=Blue]as carnivores, cats have no actual requirement for carbohydrates. In fact, feeding high carbohydrate cat food has been linked to digestive problems and the development of obesity and feline diabetes. [/COLOR]
[*]Fat—fat from meat sources provides cats with certain essential fatty acids that cannot be obtained from vegetables. Fat is also crucial for proper vitamin absorption. Deficiencies can result in dry lusterless coats and scaly skin.
[*]Vitamins—cats are unable to make certain vitamins and they must be added in proper quantities to provide a complete and well-balanced diet.
[*]Minerals—cats require minerals such as potassium, magnesium, zinc, calcium, iron and many others. Although minerals are a small part of the diet, they are critical to bring balance to a food and excesses or deficiencies must be avoided. Historically there has been concern about "ash" levels in food and its relationship to urinary tract problems in cats. Ash is a crude measure of the mineral (especially magnesium) content of food and has been proven to be unrelated to the formation of crystals in the urinary tract of cats.
[*]Water—clean, fresh water is critical to the proper functioning of all cat body systems. Especially if your cat is eating dry food, it is important to encourage water drinking to prevent dehydration. Try running water or water fountains to entice your cat to the water bowl![/LIST]

pet food ratings - after doing my own research, a lot of other sites back up a lot of these 'good' and 'bad' foods:-

petfoodratings.net/cat…tml

Seems Orijen looks really good with Purina and Science Diet being the worst by far.

Who are the American Vetinary Society? What makes them more knowledgeable than you or me or your cat? See what I'm saying? The American Vetinary Society sounds good but for all you or I know they could be just a bunch trailer park dwellers who eat Whiskas for dinner. Question...always question.

I thought it was obvious but anyway:-

Who we are
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), established in 1863, is a not-for-profit association representing more than 78,000 veterinarians working in private and corporate practice, government, industry, academia, and uniformed services. Structured to work for its members, the AVMA acts as a collective voice for its membership and for the profession.

Excuse me everybody. This is a post about a good price for a certain brand of cat food, it isn't a discussion about the R&D techniques employed by the manufacturers. I happen to feed my cats this brand and so do countless others and for them and for me this is a good price. If people would rather give their pets a different brand, thats fine, but don't use this thread as a soapbox for unsubstantiated claims against the manufacturer.

it's not UNSUBSTANTIATED claims,it's FACT..

yes it may be a good price but if you are a so called cat love and want to feed you cat on food that has been tested on pet's to the point that some have died go ahead but don't knock people for having there say on pet welfare

bottom line is iams test there pet food on pets and the way they do it is cruel and anyone who buys the stuff is helping them to make animals suffer and DIE

yu women won't buy make up tested on animals but you think its fine to feed you pets stuff that has been tested on animals ..double standards don't you think

oh and by the way it is also FACT that cats will eat things even if it hurts them to..

There are none so blind as those who cannot see.................

perhaps if you spent a little time actually researching what is the best for your cats, you would soon discover that iams to quality cat food is like Sunny D to Fresh orange juice :whistling:

you just carry on feeding your cat this rubbish if it makes you feel better or maybe, just maybe, try actually reading some of the facts posted by vet societys etc above

but hey, if it makes you feel better to save a few pennies over your cat's health; just crack on my friend.

and BTW, this is a forum so we can discuss variations of the product in the deal, regardless of what you think. Get over it! :roll:

i guess my learning from this is dont pick fights with animal activists. their minds are set with the propaganda which they choose to believe. they dont question it and obviously cant stand it when other people do.
i thought it was a top deal and bought 2 on thursday....and judging how few there were left on the shelves other consumers think it's good value too. the cat loves it and loves me for buying it for her. case won and rested:thumbsup:

i'm no animal activist or a biggot.i just don't like to see companies makeing money by claiming to care about animals when all the time they are mistreating them for there own ends.

if they are so up-front about what they are doing why don't they post the address's of site's on the back of boxes and let people decide for them selves

answer to that is because they know people will see what crap they put animals through to test the stuff and then blows there ideal about "we care" out the window..

and as for your "You will never find a bigger bunch of bigots than animal activists" comment..there is also another comment you sould think about "theres none so blind as them that dont want to see"

if you have bothered to look at the iams crulty site (which i doubt you have) there must be something wrong with you if you think that is normal

Yes I have and if you search hard enough and you will find a similar 'anti-capitalist' website for almost every large company but like poppoppop I too will carry on buying Iams and feeding it to my cats as I have done for the last 25 years. I will also continue to buy any brand of cosmetics I choose without questioning how they arrived at the shops shelves and if we have a really cold winter I'll even buy a fur coat if the whim takes me. My mind is open enough to accept that other people may have different views to mine and that is their perogative but I will never be lectured to by intolerant people who wont accept another side to an argument but theirs.
