Does anyone know if Costco has it's own brand of tinned cat food ?
Kirkland brand I suppose is what it would be ?

Is it any good ?

I have switched Butterscotch to kibble in the AM and tinned in the PM, she's had Wellness, AvoDerm and one other kind of tinned - they all seem to go down fine for her, and she likes it quite a lot it seems.

But, it is EXPENSIVE compared to kibble.

Well - went to Costco today, and the ONLY tinned cat food there was Friskies.

Costco only has dry cat and dog food under the Kirkland brand as far as I know. I've never seen any Kirkland canned. I don't buy the Friskies there because they have some varieties in the pack that none of my cats like.

If you do buy the Friskies just get the pate type and not any of the cuts 'n gravy ones.

How so ?



As for tinned foods - she's eating some AvoDerm stuff now that she just devours, so I think I'll stick with that.

For people with money issues, Kirkland is probably the best kibble to feed as long as you buy their premium formula......it's called Kirkland Signature or Diamond Naturals.

If you do a search here you'll find lots of threads about it. Here is one of them that posts the ingredients:

Thanks.

I am actually trying to switch Butterscotch over to completely tinned food.
It's only been a week or so of doing kibble AM and tinned PM and I *think* (though maybe it's wishful thinking) that I can see a difference in her coat already. She feels like she's just been washed, her coat seems smoother.

She's eating Iams Indoor hairball-control kibble right now, and we'll finish that, but when it's gone, I think we'll go fully tinned.

Kashi,I was reading the dry cat-food ingredients and did not like what I read,it's not up to the same standard as the dog-food.
