IMO, neither brand. Both are way too high in carbs for cats. Too many carbs can cause diabetes because it puts a huge strain on the pancrease. The calorie content of both foods are pretty dense, too. No cat needs 473 calories daily except for pregnant females. 283 calories is somewhat better but more suitable cat that weighs 14 lbs or so.What would be a better feed for a cat. A dry food with 473 Kcal/cup and 20% carbs Grain Free or a dry food with 283Kcal/cup and 34% carbs which is not Grain free. My cats are currently on the 2nd choice and have been on for years.
Nutro Weight Management is what they eat now, 283 kcal/cup. I was looking to change to Petcurean Go with Chicken, turkey and duck with 473kcalcupMost dry cat foods have around 450 calories per cup . So I don't think that's too high. I'm not even sure how the other one only has 283 calories per cup. Higher protein/lower carb is better for cats.
