8 Cat Food Companies That Are Doing It Right

| Published on August 25, 2014

With all the recalls and reports of cats getting sick or even dying because of their food, it is natural to be nervous when choosing a cat food brand. To help you narrow down safe choices, here are 8 cat food companies that are doing everything they can to ensure their food is safe for your loved ones.

#1 -Evanger’s

This is a family run cat food company with their own cannery located in Illinois. The U.S. sourced ingredients are 90% locally grown and used within 24 hours. Of course they don’t use any soy, corn, wheat, artificial ingredients, harmful additives, preservatives, or by-products. More information is available at www.evangersdogfood.com.


#2 – Newman’s Own Organics

This organic brand is made in Canada or the USA, using ingredients sourced from North America and New Zealand; nothing from China. They use only organic human-grade ingredients, no artificial colors or flavor enhancers, and no wheat or corn.  More information is available at www.newmansownorganics.com


#3 – PetGuard

Family owned and operated since 1979, PetGuard is a USDA-certified organic pet food company that doesn’t use artificial indgredients and no excess sugars or salt. For more information visit http://www.petguard.com.



#4 – Eagle Pack

Made in the U.S.A., Eagle Pack is a natural cat food with no by-products, corn, or wheat. Their formulas are the result of years of research with both vets and trainers to ensure proper health. For more information visit www.eaglepack.com.


#5 – Innova

Like the others on this list, Innova skips the “yucky” additives and uses only fresh ingredients. What makes them unique is that each bag goes through more than 100 quality control checks throughout the manufacturing process to ensure product quality. More information can be found at www.innovapet.com.



#6 – California Natural®

Made in the USA, California Natural puts each bag through 100 quality check points. They use whole grains, instead of “fractionated” ones, which they claim preserves the nutrients better than broken down grains do. More information is available at www.californianaturals.com



#7 – Acana

This brand is made in Alberta, Canada from fresh (never frozen) regional ingredients. Their food is based on a rich in protein, low in carbs philosophy and is cooked in-house. Another interesting thing about their food is it steam-cooked in its own juice, so no water is added. More information is available at www.acana.com.



#8 – Castor and Pollux

Their ORGANIX® line is the most complete line of USDA certified organic food for pets. In 2012, they were acquired by Merrick Pet Care, Inc., the only U.S. manufacturer certified to make both dry and canned organic cat food. They test their ingredients before, and the food during and after manufacturing, to ensure safety. For more information visit www.castorpolluxpet.com.
