When our founders started Applaws, they identified that most commercial pet foods contain high levels of cereals and grains which are cheap and filling but not necessarily beneficial to the health of our cats. They can cause allergies, itching and digestive issues. While cats are able to tolerate some level of grain, they are carnivores and their bodies are at their healthiest when they get their protein from meat and not cereals. For this reason, we decided to make Applaws dry cat food grain free. The main source of protein in Applaws cat food is meat and we create our recipes to replicate, as closely as possible, your pet’s natural diet so they can thrive.
