Yes, it's a dry food, and the kind I bought is called, "Chicken and Rice"
formular. And I have always* supplemented their diets with both wet and dry.
Efven when most vets were saying only to feed dry to cats it was all they
needed... Not. And yes, this brand I bought does* have brown rice, rice,
and chicken meal, in it after* the 1st ingrediant of Chicken. It's made by a
company called, "Natura Pet Products" out of Santa Clara, CA. Their toll
free # is 1-800-532-7261, and I think I am going to call them to see what
they have to say about this product, in general, and also see if they can
sent me any coupons..?
I would copy the ingrediants down for ya frm the bag, but I don't have the
time right now. I'll hunt around in the internet to see if they are listed,
so I can copy and paste them here. So far though, I am impressed with them.
but certainly am aware that first imnpressionions can be fleating, since I
felt the same way when I stumbled on to, "Nutro Gourmet Dry, Roasted Chicken
flavor". Now, I won't buy from them. I just don't trust them anymore and
who can blame me.
