Eagle Pack cat foodVaries
If you have visited this site before, it is no secret that Eagle Pack has a little special place in my heart. It was one of the brands I discovered early on when my interest in pet nutrition was just growing. While its dog food may not be the best on the market, it is still one of the most affordable holistic brands on the market.
How does their cat food formula compare? We’ll find out in this honest Eagle Pack cat food review!
For this review, I will be focusing on the Eagle Pack Original Adult Cat formula.

Eagle Pack Cat Food Ingredient Breakdown
Chicken meal is a high-quality protein ingredient that can contain as much as 300% more protein than chicken contains alone.
This is an ingredient that is used as a source of dietary fiber and is loaded with natural antioxidants. It can help cats feel fuller for a longer period of time and help support a healthy digestive system.
Peas are used as a source of plant-based carbohydrates, a source of additional protein, dietary fiber, Vitamin K and Manganese.
This is an ingredient that is a source of additional protein and fat. It is also a source of Omega 3 fatty acids which can support a shiny coat.
Brewers Dried Yeast
This is an ingredient that is used as a source of additional protein, B vitamins, and amino acids which can help cats maintain healthy bones, muscles, immune system, a healthy coat, and healthy blood flow.
This is a processed version of barley. It is typically used as a source of plant-based carbohydrates and a source of additional protein.
Tomato Pomace comes from a combination of the skin, pulp, and seeds of a tomato. It is a source of soluble fiber, which can help promote healthy digestion and regular bowel movements.
Natural Chicken Flavor
Just as the name implies, this is an ingredient that is used primarily as a source of flavoring. It is used to entice cats to eat it.
Flaxseed is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, an additional source of proteins and lignans.
While I am personally not a fan of salt being in any pet food, I can see its usefulness. Salt, in this case, is used as an essential nutrient, helping the body’s cells to function optimally.
Eagle Pack Cat Food Reviews by Cat Owners
Due to the unavailability of this food across all eCommerce pet sites, I was not able to find any reviews of this food from actual cat owners.
Eagle Pack Cat Food: The Bottomline
Look, at the end of the day, you get what you pay for in terms of this food. While chicken meal is listed as the primary ingredient and is more affordable than most holistic cat food brands on the market, it still contains a few ingredients that aren’t nutritionally beneficial to cats. If you are looking to introduce your cat to a holistic brand, this is a good brand to start with. However, with how rare it is, good luck trying to find it.
Decent, but not recommended
