Gabby is doing very well. She is home. I picked her up Sunday night. She is eating like a pig!
I think she is still not feeling very well. She is extremely lovey dovey. Which she isn't usually.
I'm pissed about the food the vet has me feeding her.
Look at the ingredients:
Brewers rice, whole grain corn, corn gluten meal, soybean meal, animal fat perserved with mixed tocopherois, and animal digest, fish meal, calcium carbonate, potassium.......
Ok I'm sick of looking things up. But there is the start!
Brewer's rice is a lower quality rice product that is missing many of the nutrients found in ground rice and ground brown rice.
Whole Grain Corn: Corn products are commonly used in pet foods as a main protein source. Because corn products are lacking in certain amino acids such as methionine, arginine and taurine, they are not as nutritious as the high quality meats
Corn Gluten Meal: low ash source of protein,While not the best quality source of protein, the use of corn gluten in small amounts offer preventive health benefits for cats.
Soybean meal is the product obtained by grinding the flakes which remain after removal of most of the oil from soybeans by a solvent or mechanical extraction process.
Animal fat is obtained from the tissues of mammals and/or poultry in the commercial process of rendering or extracting.
Animal fat is a byproduct of meat meal processing. The origin of the contributing animals is never known, and the resulting oil is very low in linoleic acid -- an essential fatty acid that is important for skin and coat health.
Soybean meal is a poor quality protein filler.
Animal digest is a cooked-down broth made from unspecified parts of unspecified animals. Any kind of animal can be included: goats, pigs, horses, rats, etc. The animals can be obtained from any source, so there is no control over quality or contamination.
Fish meal is made from unspecified types of fish.
(look something good amazing!)Calcium carbonate is a mineral that is true to its name which contains a minimum of 38% calcium. The calcium in bone provides structural integrity to the skeleton and also contributes to the maintenance of proper blood calcium levels through ongoing resorption and deposition.
