Review: N & D Grain-Free Feline Chicken & Pomegranate Adult Food

October 3, 2017

Healthy & tasty cat food logoOne day as I shopped in my nearby holistic pet store, a clerk asked if I wanted to try a sample pack of a newer line of dry cat food they carried.  I often examine new products because my own two cats are as picky.  I also actively look for new products to review on this site.

Look for Pet Food Sample Bags  

Retail Pet stores receive boxes of sample packages of dog and cat food from their distributors. I assume the intention by the manufacturer is for the store to give them out to consumers.

When you shop at your local pet store, ask for samples of a pet food you want to try. If they don’t have samples and the store does carry the brand, ask them nicely to order some sample bags and call you. It doesn’t cost them a dime.  A smaller retail store should be happy to do that. Big box retailers may or may not offer such samples to customers.

When I created and managed a local pet store, we placed a small container of samples of certain types of dog and cat food near the checkout counter and encouraged customers to take one. This is good public relations for the store, and customers can try their pets on a new food without ending up stuck with 3/4 of an open bag if the animal refuses it .

My cats loved the sample pack of N & D Cat Food I took home. I gave them a couple of pieces of the kibble as treats, and Lucy and Chico both gobbled it up. Since they had recently refused to eat their current dry cat food, I returned to Holistic for Pets the next day to purchase a bag of N & D Grain-Free Feline Chicken and Pomegranate Adult Cat Food to go along with the wet food they also eat.

Details about N & D Pet Food

Manufactured by Farmina Pet Foods, specializing in food research and formulation N & D began as a collaboration. Farmina and the Russo Mangimi Company in 1999 developed foods based on scientific studies on the well-being of pets. Now a large company creating healthy pet foods sold in many countries of the world, Farmina added the United States to the mix.

According to their website, Farmina’s mission is to develop the best all-natural, nutritious and scientifically validated food that both cats and dogs will love. If you ask my cats, they succeeded!

N & D Grain-Free Chicken recipes meet the standards of AAFCO profiles for all life stages, meaning any age cat or kitten can safely eat this product. Under their guaranteed analysis, the product contains 44% protein. Most commercial cat foods contain less. The amount of protein from animal sources is 97%, also very high.  The company advertises their food as consisting of 70% premium animal ingredients, 30% fruits, minerals and vegetables, and 0% cereals.
