To help you make an informed decision, we evaluated Diamond Naturals Active Cat Chicken & Rice Formula Dry Cat Food based upon eight nutritional measures critical to making a superior food. In the following comparison, we discovered that this brand of Diamond Naturals Active cat food does not contain guaranteed amounts of probiotics or vitamins A, C and E, nor does it contain prebiotics or green foods.

Comparison Chart
Diverse Proteins   Protein is the cornerstone of any diet, but all proteins are not created equal. In fact, every protein source contains a unique complement of amino acids, which are “building blocks” of the body. Ideally, a cat food should contain at least three different protein sources to provide a wide array of amino acids. Check
Animal Fat   Cats derive significant nutrition from animal fats. While vegetable oil may sound healthier to consumers, felines actually need the nutrients found in fats from animal sources. These specific nutritional components are not found in vegetable fats. Additionally, there’s great variation in the quality of animal fats, so be sure to verify that the source is species-specific (like “chicken fat”, not “animal fat”). Check
Vitamins A, C & E   It’s hard to understate the importance of antioxidants in promoting and maintaining good health. And some of the most effective antioxidants are vitamins A, C and E. Ample evidence supports that cat food should contain guaranteed amounts of vitamins A, C and E, to ensure the adequate antioxidant intake necessary for wellness. Check
Omega-3 Fatty Acids   The benefits of dietary fatty acids are well-known, as omega-3’s are some of the most extensively researched, naturally occurring, nutritional ingredients in the world. Not only should cat foods feature omega-3 fatty acids, they should include a guaranteed amount . And, for optimal benefit, omega-3 fatty acids need to be scientifically balanced with omega-6 fatty acids. Not only will the perfect balance support healthy skin and shiny coats, these fatty acids also help to maintain overall health. Check
Prebiotics   Cat food should contain prebiotics, ingredients that promote the growth of “healthy” and “friendly” bacteria in the gastrointestinal system. Prebiotics occur naturally in foods, just like vitamins and minerals occur naturally in foods. However, researchers have found that only oligofructose and inulin meet the scientific definition of prebiotics. Check
Probiotics   Often referred to as “friendly bacteria” or “healthy microorganisms”, probiotics aid in the digestive process. For these reasons and others, your cat’s food should feature guaranteed amounts of probiotics such as L. acidophilus, L. casei, B. thermophilum and E. facecium. Check
Green Foods   Green foods contain an abundance of highly active antioxidants, phytochemicals, enzymes, trace minerals and numerous other nutrients, which work to support overall wellness. Be sure your cat food features green foods, such as alfalfa sprouts. Check
No Glutens   We believe (cat or dog) foods should not contain grains like corn, wheat or corn or wheat gluten, which are generally used as inexpensive and inferior sources of protein. Additionally, these grain-based ingredients are highly susceptible to toxic mold contamination. We refuse to use these ingredients because there’s no excuse to risk the health of your pet. Check

Putting a Premium on Pet Health   
Do you really know what's in your cat's food?

Your cat eats the same food every day. The brand you feed is your cat's main source of nutrition and vital to a long and healthy life. As a caring pet parent, it is important to see through clever marketing ploys when choosing a food worthy of your feline.

Although you may think all pet food manufacturers have your pet’s best interests in mind, this is not always the case. Some manufacturers use ingredients that you would never knowingly feed your cat. In fact, you may be shocked to learn what some brands of cat food really contain.

Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food is veterinarian-formulated with safe and wholesome ingredients, including a blend of vitamins and minerals, high-quality proteins, whole grains, an antioxidant system, green foods, omega fatty acids, calcium and phosophorus for healthy teeth and strong bones and dietary fiber to help maintain a healthy digestive tract. Life’s Abundance contains no artificial flavors or colors. And there’s no corn, corn gluten, wheat or wheat gluten.

IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THE PRICE!

It’s just one more reason to feel good about purchasing Life’s Abundance products. 

BEYOND THE FIRST FIVE INGREDIENTS!

While the first five ingredients play a significant role in the nutritional make-up of your cat’s food, every single ingredient is important. For nearly a decade, tens of thousands of dogs and cats have been eating and thriving on Life’s Abundance foods. We attribute this success to our painstaking attention to the detail. Each and every ingredient in Life’s Abundance food is carefully chosen to work with all the others to supply your companion animal with a highly nutritious and perfectly balanced meal every day, every year over a lifetime.

HIGH-QUALITY PROTEINS – Proteins are the building blocks of all living organisms. Protein is essential for all bodily functions including those of the brain, heart, skin, skeleton and many others. Life’s Abundance cat food contains at least 33% of high-quality protein. Look for identifiable animal proteins such as "chicken meal" rather generic terms like "poultry meal," which can consist of any fowl (turkey, chicken, geese, etc.).

CHICKEN MEAL -  Some foods contain chicken meat or chicken parts, which naturally hold a fair amount of water. We prefer to use chicken meal because most of the water has been removed, which makes it a concentrated source of protein. This means that there is a greater “protein content” in one pound of chicken meal versus one pound of chicken meat. That’s why high-quality chicken meal is a key ingredient in Life’s Abundance foods, as well as catfish and turkey meals.

WHOLE GRAINS - Whole grains are an excellent source of protein, fiber, B vitamins, iron, zinc and other essential minerals. They also provide the kind of carbohydrates that deliver sustained energy to your cat. We include the natural goodness of Ground Brown Rice in Life’s Abundance Cat Food. We also include Rice Flour, a carbohydrate that delivers quick energy to your cat.

VITAMINS AND MINERALS – The proprietary blend of vitamins and minerals in Life’s Abundance foods was carefully selected to work in concert with all of the other ingredients to enhance the overall nutritional value of the food.

ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEM – Among other nutrients, our antioxidant system includes vitamins A, C and E.

CHICKEN FAT - We believe the primary fat source in cat food should be animal based because these fats contain a profile of fatty acids that are easily metabolized and generally more available to the body. Animal fats can vary in quality, so look for a species-specific fat like “chicken fat” (versus “animal fat”) to be certain of the kind of fat your cat is eating.

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS FROM FISH OIL - Omega-3 fatty acids are some of the most extensively researched natural nutritional ingredients in the world. Among its many health benefits, the omega-3’s in Life’s Abundance help support healthy skin and a shiny coat. We also included flaxseed meal for its outstanding nutritional profile and its contribution to healthy skin and coat.

DIETARY FIBER - Fiber is required in every diet to maintain healthy intestinal tract and good nutrient absorption. We use beet pulp, which is the fiber from the gray sugar beet (sugar removed). Many studies have demonstrated that beet pulp performs better than many other types of fiber.

“GREEN FOODS” – DOG GRASS - Dog grass contains many nutrients that cats crave … that’s instinct at its best! When cats in the wild consumed their prey, the intestinal tract contained grass and this grass provided necessary fiber and phytonutrients.

“GREEN FOODS” - ALFALFA SPROUTS - Alfalfa sprouts contain an abundance of highly active antioxidants, phytochemicals, enzymes, trace minerals and numerous other living nutrients, which work to support good health and promote proper assimilation of foods.

DIRECT-FED MICROBIALS -  These ingredients are similar to those found in supermarket yogurts. Direct-fed microbials help support healthy immune and digestive systems.
