Costco has finally started selling their own brand of Wet Cat Food and I was glad to give our cats a chance to get in on some Costco review work!
This food, intended for adult cats, is grain free and contains either Salmon, Turkey or Chicken as the primary ingredient. The food is packaged into 45 trays of pate that each contain 3.5 ounces.
The Kirkland pate is Item Number 1647381 and is found in the back of the warehouse with the other pet supplies.
Three Pate Cat Food Flavors
You get 45 trays of food per box that are divided as follows:
- 15 Trays Salmon Pate
- 15 Trays Chicken Pate
- 15 Trays Turkey Pate
I like having the different flavor options and rotate between them to keep our cats from getting bored with a single variety.
This food has been well accepted by our two cats and it looks like the Salmon Pate is their favorite.
I really appreciate how easy it is to simply peel back the top foil to open the cat food. We used to buy another brand of wet food that was hard to open and I would end up with “juice” on my hands and on my clothes.
Nutrition and Feeding Instructions
A single tray of the wet cat food weighs 3.5 ounces (99g). The nutritional values varies slightly between flavors. The values for a tray of the Turkey Pate are:
- Calories per Tray: 98
- Crude Protein: 8.0%
- Crude Fat: 4.5%
- Crude Fiber: 1.5%
- Moisture: 80.0%
- Taurine: 0.07%
The recommended feeding amounts are 2.5 to 3 trays of food per 8 pounds of body weight per day. The exact amount of food you cat needs will vary depending upon age, activity and breed.
We give both of our cats one tray in the morning and one tray in the evening and supplement this with an open feeding bowl of dry cat food. Neither cat ever finishes a full tray which makes our leftover stealing Golden Retriever very happy 🙂
Price of Kirkland Pate Wet Cat Food at Costco
I bought the 45 count box of wet cat food at Costco for $32.99 which comes out to a cost of $0.733 per tray. With 3.5 ounces per tray the per ounce cost is about $0.21.
The cost of the Kirkland product is less than you will spend on a premium cat food like Fancy Feast but more than a budget brand like Friskies. Overall the food looks like it is fairly priced.
