When you work with and care for pets, of course the topic of nutrition/feeding comes up as part of their care routine. The foods we feed our pets is probably the singular most important thing we can do to make sure our fur kids are with us for many happy years. Often, our Mesa cat sitting clients will ask us for recommendations. So naturally when I came across the information, I felt it was important for our Mesa cat sitters to know about it, as well as our cat sitting clients.

To avoid bad ingredients you will need to become an educated label reader. If your cat food label said, cancer causing agent, calorie-less food filler (think beer for cats), or allergy agent, would you pick up and buy the bag? Hopefully not, but that’s exactly what most unknowing consumers are doing! Scroll down to the bottom of the article and you will find the list of ingredients to avoid feeding your furbabies.

Sorry to say that many people feed their cats these very well known and thought to be ‘good brands listed in the below article  (myself included before I knew so much about pet food in the last couple years). Many of you will be surprised at the brands on this list!

So here you are. The top 10 worst dry cat foods you can feed your cats with the ‘bad’ ingredients listed in red by each brand:

As your cat sitter in Mesa, we strive to educate our clients as part of caring for your pet. Were you surprised by what you read?  If so, and you are looking for potential positive alternatives to feed your cat, other than those listed as the worst, please check out these ideas:

    Last month we took our dog into a local Vet clinic because our pet pug Sugar had an inflamed right leg. We knew it was something serious, but when we took her into the clinic, her injury was not at all “terminal” and she showed no signs of illness except for a slight limp. The clinic decided to keep her overnight. The next morning, when I called about her condition, a staff member on the phone told me that Sugar had died, and “bled to death”. I was numb with shock, and stated that I would come out and retrieve her remains. When I arrived at the clinic, I spoke with the Vet and asked exactly why the dog had died, but she would not give me a straight answer. I left the clinic feeling very angry, and I asked for a copy of her bill on my way out. According to the bill, Suger had received three injections of a powerful steroid. I went online and looked up the steroid, and read that an overdose of the steroids was fatal to small dogs. I honestly believe that Sugar was given a fatal overdose of this steroid, but there’s no way the clinic will admit any fault. I don’t know what to do, but I am very heartbroken over the loss our family pet. She was so wonderful. I miss her deeply. I don’t know what to do now. When I buried her outside our home, I also noticed that the clinic had left a needle inside her arm. I honestly feel that this clinic was completely negligent in the care given to our pet. Any advice, please?
