NutriSource Cat & Kitten Chicken Meal, Salmon & Liver Dry Cat Food
NutriSource Cat & Kitten Chicken Meal, Salmon & Liver is a grain-friendly, all-life stages dry cat food that features farm-raised, Humane Certified light and dark chicken meat and chicken livers from Minnesota and wild-caught Canadian Salmon. Brown rice, a whole grain, is easily digested and provides important vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, calcium, phosphorous, and iron. Peas, a low-glycemic carbohydrate, help your cat feel fuller for longer, and tomato pomace and beet pulp provide fiber that is beneficial for digestive health. This kibble is a good choice for picky kittens and cats that enjoy a mixed protein diet.

It takes time to transition your pet to a new food without having digestive upset. Over the course of one to two weeks, you should gradually switch from the old food to the new. Start with a 75% old to 25% new mix, then 50:50, and finally 25:75, until you have switched to NutriSource food entirely.
