NEW YORK – Made by Nacho, a cat food brand launched by Bobby Flay in April, is expanding its wet food. The brand has launched new flavors and textures in their cat food formulas, now formulated with bone broth and optimized for hydration.
“Cats do not have the same thirst drive as other species, so it is extremely important to include hydration in their diet, especially in connection with common health problems such as kidney disease,” said Katja Lang, DVM, veterinary advisor at Made by Nacho. “While genetics can play a factor in kidney disease development, it is critical to make sure that a cat is drinking enough fluids for the kidneys (which are often the last to receive fluids) to function properly.”
The wet cat food line includes four recipes – recipe for grain-free sustainably caught tuna and cod, recipe for cage-free chopped chicken, recipe for sustainably caught chopped salmon and grass-fed, grain-ready minced meat recipe – all in a tasty bone broth that provides extra moisture and flavor .
“Made by Nachos wet food offers a complete and balanced diet high in protein and water, and offers cats a tasty way to get everything they need. I happily recommend it to all of my feline patients as part of their normal diet, “added Lang.
Flay added, “Our wet food is made with nacho’s secret ingredient, bone broth, for a delicious taste. Nacho knows the importance of good taste, but also how to keep cats healthy – to keep cats hydrated and healthy. “
The wet pet food market is growing, with Chicago-based market research firm IRI reporting that wet cat sales grew 7.2% from August 2019 to August 2020. Wet dog food sales rose 7.7% over the same period. New wet diets are advocating better hydration and rotation feeding options for betting owners to provide improved variety and nutrition.
