Naturina Fresh cat wet food

Naturina Fresh cat wet food

In addition to complete cat food, the market offers complementary foods that are an addition to the daily diet. Naturina Fresh is a juicy addition, which I had the pleasure to test and review.

We received this food for testing from the dlapsaikota.com online pet store 🙂

First impression

Eco-friendly

The manufacturer is openly fighting animal experimentation, so Naturina products are not tested on animals (cruelty-free), and the fish used in feed are caught using methods of protecting the marine ecosystem without harming the dolphins. Recyled materials are used for the production of packaging.

“At Naturina, we want to contribute to the protection of the ecosystem.” – the producer assures.

Unboxing

You can see the first opening of the Naturina Fresh sachet and the reaction of my cat Apollo in our unboxing video of the package we got from the dlapsaikota.com store:

Summary

Okiem kota

Apollo was head over heels in love with every sachet – even the fish ones (even though he usually doesn’t like fish flavors). First he licked the sauce and then he ate the pieces of meat and cleaned the plate so fast it was really nice to look at.

My opinion

Naturina Fresh is a complementary feed in sachets, containing 40-45% meat and a small amount of vegetable additives. Vegetables are not essential to a cat’s diet. The food contains some vitamin E and taurine, but of course this is not enough to meet your cat’s daily needs.

Fresh Naturin sachets can act as a supplement to your daily diet, treat or reward, but it can not form the basis of the daily diet – to serve wholesome food, which you can find reviews on my blog in the section Complete food 🙂

The advantage of the feed is the lack of grains, preservatives or dyes, so we will definitely use this food as a diversifying addition.
