About The Product

Taste of the wild is a company that makes grain free pet food. Most of their products are made with higher meat protein than other products, but that doesn’t mean they are going to be overly expensive. The company was founded in 1970 in Meta, Missouri and they strive to create food that is healthy for cats of all ages.

Notable features of the Taste of the Wild Cat Food include:

  • Grain free with sweet potatoes, trout, wood-smoked salmon, vegetables, fruits, antioxidants
  • Crude Protein   32.0%    Minimum
  • Crude Fat            16.0%    Minimum
  • Crude Fiber        3.0%      Maximum
  • Moisture             10.0%    Maximum
  • Calories: 3,741 kcal/kg (350 kcal/cup) Calculated Metabolizable Energy
  • Available in 5lb and 15lb bags

The main ingredient in this cat food is farm raised Trout, which contains a lot of moisture. The trout is 61 percent protein, 38 percent fat, and 1 percent carbohydrate. This ingredient is a great source of vitamin B6, phosphorus, selenium, niacin, and vitamin B12. It is also a great source of essential omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.

The second ingredient in this food is ocean fish meal, which is a basic term that includes a variety of mixed ocean fish, like whitefish for example. This ingredient is found in many pet foods and since it is a fish meal, most of the moisture has been removed.

The next few ingredients include sweet potatoes, potatoes, and pea protein. These carbohydrates offer little by way of protein (except the pea protein, which is does help increase the overall protein count in the food, but it isn’t necessarily desirable for cats), but they are a great source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium.

A few other customers report that their cats are rather finicky and don’t take to change very well.

They discovered that their cats had a grain allergy and when they gave their cats this food, they took to it almost immediately. Not only that, but they saw a considerable improvement in their cats health within a short time.

There were a small handful of customers who left critical reviews of this product. These customers report that their cats did not respond well to this food at all.

One customer reported that they chose this food because the cat started to lose its fur and developed a fungus. 

Other pet owners reported that their cat would get UTIs and would start vomiting.

Some customers were concerned about the ingredients, as it seems that the ingredients had changed recently.

These customers reported the first ingredient used to be a meat product, but they go on to report that the first ingredient is now a  meat “meal.” While meat meal is still a good ingredient for your pet, this particular customer felt that they were cheated because of said change.

Our Recommendation

As a cat owner, providing the most nutritious food for our cats is one of the most important things we can do for our fur babies.

With all of the different kinds of cat food currently available on the market, it can be a little daunting trying to figure out which is going to be the best. In a sea of other grain free cat foods, we believe the Taste of the Wild Cat Food is worth your consideration.

With this cat food, it has a decent amount of nutrients that your feline friend needs to be healthy.  This particular cat food has 35.6 grams of protein and 17.8 percent fat, which is a little more than the guaranteed minimum amount for each. There is slightly more fiber in the food, clocking in at 3.33 percent, which isn’t too bad.

If you’re looking for a good dry cat food that isn’t going to be too expensive, then this is a good food.

We do, however, recommend that you consult with your vet before making the switch, just to make sure it isn’t going to hurt your cat in some way – some customers reported that this cat food made their cat gain weight (if they are too thin) and made their fur healthier; whereas some customers reported it made their cats would vomit from time to time or get UTIs.
