This range of food is therapeutic which means each recipe targets a specific ailment, although some are suitable for cats without any medical issues. 

The protein levels are low, as you would expect from food that caters for conditions such as kidney disease or heart problems. 

Pros
  • Targets specific ailments
  • Fish protein is included
  • Protein levels are low
Cons
  • More expensive than other cat foods

Each recipe includes its AAFCO nutrient profile: Growth (kitten), Maintenance (adult), All Life Stages, Supplemental or Unspecified.

Ingredients Analysis

The first ingredient is water which adds nothing but moisture to this food. Water is a routine finding in most wet cat foods.

The second ingredient is lamb lung.  Lung is a protein-rich organ meat that’s also low in fat.

The third ingredient is chicken which is considered “the clean combination of flesh and skin derived from the parts or whole carcasses of chicken”.  1

Chicken is naturally rich in the 11 essential amino acids required by a cat to sustain life.

The fourth and fifth ingredients are lamb liver and pork liver.  These organ meats are sourced from named animals and thus considered beneficial components.

The sixth ingredient is rice.  Is this whole grain rice, brown rice or white rice?  Since the word “rice” doesn’t tell us much, it’s impossible to judge the quality of this item.

The seventh and eighth ingredients are dicalcium phosphate & calcium, which is likely used here as a dietary calcium supplement.

From here the list goes on to include a number of other items. But to be realistic, ingredients located this far down the list (other than nutritional supplements) are not likely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Nutrient Analysis

Although this is a prescription product, our review has nothing to do with the accuracy of claims made by the manufacturer as to the product’s ability to treat or cure a specific health condition.

So, to find out whether or not this food is appropriate for your particular pet, it’s important to consult your veterinarian.

With that understanding, based on its ingredients alone, Forza10 Nutraceutic ActiWet Renal Support Recipe looks like an above-average wet product.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 31.7%, a fat level of 27.8% and an estimated carbohydrate level of 32.6%.

As a group, the brand features an near-average protein content of 37% and an above-average fat level of 28.4%. Together these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 26.6% for the overall product line, alongside a fat to protein ratio of 77%.

This means the Forza10 wet range contains near-average protein, near-average carbohydrate and higher than average fat, when compared to typical wet cat food.

Final Word

If you are looking for a therapeutic diet for a specific ailment or health condition such as heart, or kidney problems, then this would be worth considering.  It is deliberately low in protein content and some of the recipes are still OK for healthy adult cats.
