Review: Jane Cat wet cat food

Next cat food that caught my attention is Jane Cat from John Dog. Is it as good as it seems at first glance? I decided to buy it, test it and share my review of this food.

Few words about Jane Cat and John Dog

The John Dog brand is known for its dog food and products. The creators of the brand are a group of friends who believe that dogs are not only pets, but real partners and buddies. Recently, they also offer cat products – beds, delicacies and wet food.

Food tests and analysis

I decided to buy and try all the Jane Cat’s taste options:

  • Beef
  • Chicken and salmon
  • Veal and turkey
  • Beef and chicken

Price (rounded): 5 PLN for 200 g cans, 8 PLN for 400 g cans

Smell and consistency

Food is quite moist and strongly ground meat, but you can notice unground meat pieces. In each flavor variant is full of jelly formed from broth, which is quite a lot.

Comprehensive composition analysis

The first thing that struck me was the content of meat and offal in the composition, and precisely the lack of specification what part of the content is muscle meat and which offal.

Food has a balanced analytical composition – the optimal level of fats, carbohydrates and proteins, as well as the appropriate content of taurine. The ratio of calcium to phosphorus is slightly overestimated by too much calcium, but I am very happy that the manufacturer gave the content of calcium and phosphorus, because not on every feed we can find such information. The composition also has salmon oil, which is a source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids necessary in the cat’s diet.

The food does not contain cereals, but two flavors has completely unnecessary vegetables and fruits – carrots in the feed Beef and bananas in the stall Chicken and salmon.

Benefits

  • without cereals, dyes and preservatives,
  • the right amount of taurine,
  • contains salmon oil,
  • optimal levels of carbohydrates, fats and proteins,
  • available in large cans,
  • there are taste options not based on chicken.

Disadvantages

  • no specification of the percentage of meat and separate offal,
  • two flavors contain unnecessary additives in the form of vegetables and fruits,
  • only one mono-protein option

My opinion about Jane Cat

I think Jane Cat has quite good analytical composition, but I do not think that it can be a complete basis for a daily and balanced diet. There is no specification of the separate percentage of the meat and the offal, which may suggest that the percentage of offal is greater than that of meat. Offal is an important part of a cat’s diet, but too much offal may result in diarrhea in some cats.

My cat’s opinion

Apollo liked veal and turkey the most. All the flavors suited him, and it was obvious that he was intrigued by the smell of the food.
