Several weeks ago, we rec’d Wellness Cubed Sliced and Minced Grain Free Canned Cat Food in the mail. They sent us:
- Minced Chicken Dinner in Gravy
- Sliced Salmon Entree
- Cubed Tuna Entree
- Cubed Turkey and Salmon Entree
Since we were only sent 1 can of each of the flavors above, it was hard to judge if they really liked this Wellness Brand cat food. Because, as you well know, your kitty can eat the first can of food and then decide thereafter that they don’t care for that flavor (only after you’ve bought a case, of course). So, unfortunately, I cannot report with accuracy if they liked a specific flavor, but of the 4 cans sent, they were all opened at the same time and given to Charlie and Trigg at the same time, and they did finish all of them.
Wellness Cubed Sliced and Minced Grain Free Canned Cat Food is, yup, you guessed it, 100% grain-free and contain no added artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
It comes in the following flavors:
Wellness Minced Chicken Dinner
Wellness Minced Turkey Entrée

Wellness Sliced Turkey & Salmon Dinner

After interviewing Susan Thixton of truthaboutpetfood.com, I asked her what the standard questions are that she asks pet food manufacturers. Here they are – with Wellness’ responses about the food discussed in this review. Questions are credited to Susan Thixton.
What is the country of origin of ingredients?
Our ingredients are primarily sourced from the United States and Canada. There are many high quality ingredients available in the U.S., however, sometimes ingredient quality is higher from other countries or in some cases, sourcing from the U.S. isn’t an available option for us (or even the vast majority of pet food companies) because, for example, supplies are limited.
Our ingredient breakdown by geography is as follows:
- U.S. and Canada: 98%+
- Europe: less than 1%
- Asia: less than 1%
What is the country of origin of the vitamins and minerals?
If the pet food has a meat meal (such as chicken meal), does the meat meal contain muscle meat only or does it include bone and internal organs? If the pet food has a fish meal ingredient – what preservative does the fish meal supplier use on the fish meal?
The new Wellness canned cat food contains no meat or fish meal at all.
Do the pet food cans contain a BPA lining?
The Cat Cans are completely BPA/BADGE free
Where are the foods made? Does the plant have any special certifications?
We require all suppliers to meet stringent requirements and adhere to the highest standards. Exceeding even the strictest requirements from the FDA, we are determined to go further, to do better and to take as many precautions with our pet food, as is taken with food for humans. We require all of our manufacturing partners to have a HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) program and pass a quality audit by NSF–Cook & Thurber, the leading human food auditing firm. Our manufacturing partner is also audited by BRC (British Retail Consortium) – one of the highest recognized international audit groups.
Here is the video I captured of Charlie and Trigg trying out the Wellness Cubed Sliced and Minced Grain Free Canned Cat Food for the first time:
