Whole Life Pet Products LifeBites Chicken Flavor Food for Cats

Whole Life Pet Products LifeBites Chicken Flavor Food for CatsWhole Life Pet has recently come out with a new cat food/cat treat.  They sent us some to try out.  There is much opinion around protein and cats.  These treats have more than just protein, so I know some readers will not be keen on them because of some of the extra ingredients.  As you can see in the video below, my two were immediately interested, but only wanted a few a day.  So we have continued to eat them as such.  You can also re-hydrate them and turn them into a mush-like consistency, or a pate.

The new LifeBites treats feature live active probiotic cultures from yogurt and have pumpkin for healthy digestion.  They are rich in antioxidants and everything batch it tested and verified safe.

Ingredients
Chicken, Sweet Potato, Chicken Liver, Peas, Yogurt, Pumpkin, Cranberry, Flaxseed, Chia Seed, Tricalcium Phosphate, Vitamins and Minerals (Choline Chloride, Taurine, Zinc Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Thiamin Mononitrate, Potassium Iodide, Vitamin D3 Supplement).

All of you know how much Charlie adores Whole Life Pet’s classic pet treats – their one ingredient muscle treats.

You can buy them on Amazon.

    Love that video! Poor Chiggy! Hope he recovers from that anesthesia soon! These new Wholelife LifeBites sound wonderful and something different to add a little diversity to my girls (and ferals’) menus. Am in total agreement with you, Jenny, about not giving any dry food, even not in treat form with Miss Mari being pre-renal, but will rehydrate ours when it comes and bet they will all love it! Was just wishing the other day for a new healthy treat to come out that Gracie will not turn up her nose about. This might just be it. Also, love the probiotics in it and will definitely give some to my two ferals who are needing a little extra boost to help them fortify for the upcoming winter!

    Am going to order some right now.

    Thanks so much for this helpful review and give an extra special hug and kiss to Chiggy!

  2. Thanks for the great info & video, Jenny! Charlie tucking into his so quickly was so adorable! Glad to see Chiggy liked them, too, even when he was loopy from his dental work earlier in the day! 🙂

    Not sure our girl would like them or not based on her non-interest in the freeze-dried Whole Life treats we tried in the past. She seems to only lurve one treat and it’s those Red Barn Turkey Leg treats we get from Chewy.com. They are also grain-free.

    Big hugs!

    tell me more – why are those ingredients bad for kitties? i know whole life used a vet to come up with the formula, so even if i pass this onto them without concrete evidence, i’d guess it would be hard for them to know.

      Hi Jenny, I have been meaning to respond but have had many personal things to take care of, so sorry. Vets, or at least most vets, are the last people I would take food advice from. I know there are exceptions, but not many. I lost all my stored info when my hard drive crashed.

      Here is some info regarding a very similar cat food.

      Grain free equates to toxic almost automatically.

      The reason is that safe and neutral pH grains like rice, are replaced by poisonous vegetables, fruits, herbs, for example here the toxins are pea flour, agar agar, (natural flavors is a “who knows what” HIGH on the list here so lots of it), cranberries (saponins and others toxins) , yucca (enough saponins will kill a cat), tomatoes (toxin in them and in peas, is also saponins) , kelp (toxin is lignin) .
      This food should be very scary to any cat owner!
      Saponin toxins are cumulative and are the cause of the increased cancer rates lately in cats, so much so that cancer now is ahead of kidney failure for causing cat death. They also cause red cell destruction and resultant anemia, and cause kidney damage from high pH alkali foods.
      The tricalcium phosphate is ALWAYS a giveaway to poisoned food – a nasty chemical supposed to try and counter the alkali – but it is really just a different pH of toxin.

      SO while your cat may or may not vomit immediately from all the toxins, cats have NO liver enzymes to either digest or detoxify the toxic items listed, so they accumulate in the body doing LONG-term harm.

      And grain-free is usually one of the worst options, due to fruit/veg/herb substitutions for the safer grains.
      There never was anything wrong with the grains provided they were not GMO or what – only with grain PROTEIN (like corn “gluten” and wheat “gluten” (and other plant proteins are even worse, like soy protein, pea protein, etc.)

        thanks for taking the time to respond – what do you feed your cats?

      • Jenny says:

        A reader wrote me and said:

        “Would not feed this exclusively since cats are obligate carnivores, so they require high quality protein just like in the wild, along with adequate water intake to keep their kidneys functioning properly. I try to go easy on the carbs for my girls and limit this food accordingly just for a treat or topper on special occasions and always add water to rehydrate it.

        As far as the grain content, it was my understanding that grains are used as fillers AND of my highest concern is that the grains used in pet grade foods many times have very high contents of pesticides because they are pet food grade and not human grade. Many reputable pet food companies don’t use grains anymore because of the pesticide problems. Unless you find a company that specifically says that their food is made in a Human Grade plant, then you are buying pet food grade cat food and therefore I choose not buy any food that had grains in it because it WILL have some degree of pesticides in it.

        Don’t really see any problem with cranberries or the other vegs listed here being toxic or poison unless they over ate a whopping dose of them individually. That would be toxic to anyone, human or cats. Cats usually won’t eat something that is bitter to them such as a tomato which is in the nightshade family because of it’s irritating nature. Even then, it wouldn’t kill them, but would be very irritating to their digestive tract causing diarrhea upset and maybe vomiting. Cranberries are very helpful in fighting against bacteria formation in the cat’s bladder because they help keep the urine at a more acidic level which also helps with the prevention of crystal formation in cats that are prone to get urinary stones.

        Cats do have liver enzymes that filter toxins out of their bodies just as humans and other animals do. They are: alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST), as well as alkaline phosphatase (ALP). When cats go into liver failure after ingesting something toxic, blood tests detect and measure the higher liver enzyme activity levels.

        This Whole Life company has always seemed like an upstanding, high quality pet food company who is making every effort to keep our pets healthy.”
