      Hi Lisa,

      It is not the slightest bit useful to anyone other than the mfr, which
      profits from our ignorance.

      These are the primary ingredients in the product: flax seed, blackstrap
      molasses, rice bran, primary dried yeast, freeze dried liver, sunflower seed,
      dehydrated alfalfa, dried carrot, freeze dried bone, dried fish meal, freeze dried
      oyster, sprouted green barley, dried kelp, lecithin, garlic, and yucca
      schidigera extract.

      With the exception of liver and bone (and we don't know from which species),
      none of those ingredients bears any resemblance to any food that cats have
      eaten thruout their evolutionary history, nor do they have a nutritional profile
      that compares with any food in the cat's evolutionary diet. There is no valid
      nutritional reason to feed a cat any of those ingredients...nor to use the
      product, not least of all b/c there is no information on what nutrients those
      ingredients contain and in what amts. If a cat really needs the nutrients in a
      carrot (and it doesn't), why not feed a carrot? Further, many of the ingredients
      are potentially problematic. Just a few examples: alfalfa contains cavanine,
      which can block arginine, an essential amino acid for cats; kelp can affect
      thyroid function; and garlic is a risk factor for a type of anemia.

      If the cat truly needs nutritional support, there is a good multisupplement
      available called NuCat (www.vetriscience.com), also sold as Tabby Tabs by a
      sister company (www.usanimalnutritionals.com). And there are quality human brand
      supplements available for many individual nutrients. // Rosemary
