Some of it looks good. And some has canola oil, lecithin (soy), synthetic vitamin K. Two GMO franken food ingredients and one synthetic vitamin. Not sold where I live as would like to try the canned that is without these ingredients.

 Hi there,
 The  Dave's naturally healthy [all formulas] are made at Chenango in NY the simply the best dry is made at Ohio pet food. Simmons and Evangers make my cans, I can't answer the vitamin question off the top of my head. Please wait until our website is updated [some of the ingredients are not correct on the site] that should be done in the next week.Dave.

wonder that too lesliek. The website has incorrect ingredients? Didn't anybody proof read and approve the copy before putting it on the web site?

The canned version of this cat food has recently appeared in one of my local pet food stores, one that is in general pretty savvy.  I looked it over (always being on the alert for things Linley can and will eat, which is challenging.)

The 3 oz cans are, I am sure, Menu/Simmons.  The codes are very similar to those on the cans for Wellness and many other products from the original Menu (now owned by Simmons of course.) There was nothing Evangers-like about them, fortunately.  (Had there been, I would have dropped them like hot coals.)

I bought a few to try for Linley.  He loves the turkey flavor!  Of course, that probably will not be true next week. Roll Eyes

They appear to have re-done the website.  The link posted upthread does not work.  I found it at http://www.davespetfood.com


Here are the ingredients from the website, which now match what is on the cans I have:

Turkey recipe:

Turkey, Chicken Broth, Chicken Liver, Chicken, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Guar Gum, Carrageenan, Cranberries, Blueberries, Zucchini, Potassium Chloride, Dicalcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Taurine, Iron Proteinate (source of Chelated Iron), Beta-carotene, Zinc, Proteinate (source of Chelated Zinc), Vitamin E Supplement, Choline Chloride, Cobalt Proteinate (source of Chelated Copper), Folic Acid, Manganese Proteinate (source of Chelated Manganese), Niacin, Calcium Pantothenate, Sodium Selenite, Vitamin D-3 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin B-12 Supplement, Potassium Iodide and Biotin.

I have to wonder if the company was bought out or something?

I wonder what's the use of having beta carotene there? Cats can convert it to vit. A, and if it has turkey, chicken, chicken liver there should be plenty of vit. A anyway. And then it has vot. A supplement as well, but way down the list.

Good question.  However, beta carotene seems to be in a lot of cat foods.  As an example, here's one of the Wellness formulas:

Turkey, Chicken Liver, Whitefish, Chicken Broth, Salmon, Carrots, Natural Chicken Flavor, Sweet Potatoes, Squash, Zucchini, Guar Gum, Cranberries, Blueberries, Carrageenan, Ground Flaxseed, Potassium Chloride, Taurine, Calcium Carbonate, Iron Proteinate (a source of Chelated Iron), Beta-Carotene, Zinc Proteinate (a source of Chelated Zinc), Vitamin E Supplement, Choline Chloride, Cobalt Proteinate (a source of Chelated Cobalt), Thiamine Mononitrate, Copper Proteinate (a source of Chelated Copper), Folic Acid, Manganese Proteinate (a source of Chelated Manganese), Niacin, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Sodium Selenite, Vitamin D-3 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin B-12 Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Biotin.

I know. At least it is not harmful, unlike garlic, or unknown effect like lots of botanicals.

It could be a psychological thing for label readers.  Beta-carotene is supposed to be a cancer inhibitor vitamin.  They put it in there because it makes us feel good giving it to our pets?

About the beta-carotene-

Cats do absorb beta-carotene, but they cannot convert it to vitamin A.  It is being added for its antioxidant benefits. 

There was a 7 year study (by Nestle) on the benefits of antioxidants (vitamin E and beta-carotene), omega fatty acids, and prebiotics to cat longevity.

My kittens have been eating Dave's Cat food (Chicken and Turkey flavors) as part of their rotation. The ingredients seem pretty good and it's not super expensive.  No problems so far.
