Why Beyond? Because there’s more to natural pet food than just ingredients.
What we put in matters. So is what we leave out.
Not all natural food is created equal. And not every natural pet food is the same. Our wet cat food recipes always contain real meat, poultry or fish and never any corn, wheat or soy, poultry by-product meal or added artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. But you may find other pet food brands that say that, too. At Beyond, we feel the great privilege of feeding your pet comes with a great responsibility: to do what’s right for natural pet nutrition. That’s why we go beyond by sharing the whole story of your pet’s food.
Our in-house nutritionists oversee every step.
When formulating your pet’s food, was a nutritionist involved at every step? At Beyond, our in-house nutritionists oversee every step of the formulation process. They maximize the way our real ingredients and essential nutrients come together for the long-term health of your cat. But that’s just the beginning. Our nutritionists back any reference we make to nutrition. So you’ll know that any time we make a nutritional claim, it’s supported by a team of nutritionists with years of experience in pet nutrition.
We have a responsibility to make cat food safe.
Do you know what quality and safety measures go into the making of your pet’s food? At Beyond, we oversee every step of the supply chain and conduct regular quality and safety audits, so that we never leave the safety of your pet’s food to chance. We hold our pet food to our own high standards as well as to the standards set forth by the USDA, FDA and AAFCO. In some cases, we even exceed them. As many of our quality assurance team members will tell you, “Making pet food is easy. Making safe pet food is hard.”
Natural food is only good if your cat will eat it.
Our wet cat food recipes are made with natural ingredients plus essential nutrients. Every recipe contains real, recognizable ingredients and is formulated to be naturally and nutritionally complete. Look for them in 12 different recipes across two different forms, including Ground Entrée and In Gravy.
It's about knowing exactly what your cat is eating--real, recognizable ingredients you know and trust, plus essential nutrients.

The Wellness product lists 38 separate ingredients, the Purina product only 30. So what does Wellness offer that Purina does not? Sweet potatoes, squash, zucchini, cranberries, blueberries and ground flaxseed, among a few others. Those all sound wonderful to a health-conscious human, but I doubt they would ever be part of the natural diet of a feline.
Do those additions promote wellness in cats? My online search found data from a Dr. Debra Zoran, DVM, a vet writing in the JAVMA, and as paraphrased, her opinion is that “most of the relevant work seems to indicate that the nutrients found specifically in vegetables/fruits aren't digestible by cats, and the nutrients that they need are found in animal tissue (usually muscle or fatty tissue). So the inclusion of these ingredients in their food is not poisonous, but adds indigestible mass that they don't need.”
So should we switch to Purina, which doesn’t contain all those fruits and veggies? If cost were the only factor, the answer would be no. Purina "Beyond Natural" costs about $1.66 per 3 oz. can, Wellness (although pricier than most supermarket cat foods) can be bought by the case on Amazon for a tick under $1 per 3 oz. can. But price is not the only factor.
Some time ago, I also got and reviewed Sheba Premium Cat Food (chicken entrée), which our cats also loved, and it does not include fruits and veggies. You can buy that for about 60 cents per 3 oz. can.
Our cats have done well with Wellness brand food for years, but I suspect Sheba and Purina might be a bit better for them because they're more meat, less fruit and veggies. Of the three, Sheba is the least expensive.
FYI: The 19 ingredients that are found in both the Wellness Turkey and Salmon pate and the Purina Beyond Ocean Whitefish & Spinach pate – turkey, liver, whitefish, carrots, guar gum, potassium chloride, taurine, calcium pantothenate, Vitamin E Supplement, choline chloride, folic acid, niacin, Vitamin D-3 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin A supplement, Vitamin B-12 supplement, potassium iodide and biotin.
Because of these problems, I read the ingredients very carefully, hoping to avoid anything that could possibly have consumed melamine before being made into pate: ocean whitefish, turkey, liver, fish broth, spinach, carrots, egg product, guar gum. It seems safe, with the possible exception of the turkey (and what is turkey doing in whitefish pate?!)(But then, what is guar gum doing there?)
It did make me very happy to know that I don't work in a cat food factory, whipping up pate with these ingredients for hours at a time.
Having determined that this was potentially safe, (and that this was not something I would EVER make myself), I fed it to my five cats.
Large-I-Will-Eat-Anything Cat gobbled it right up.
ADD-Suspicious Cat looked at it suspiciously, hid in the closet for two hours, and came back and ate whatever Large-I-Will-Eat-Anything Cat hadn't stolen from her bowl.
Sneaky Huntress Cat ate a little, went out and terrorized mice, returned and ate a little more, went out and terrorized more mice and a skunk, ate a little more, and went out and terrorized more mice.
Dainty Fluffball Kitty sat on her perch above the others and daintily nibbled hers until it was all gone.
Always Hungry Cat got on the counter while I was dishing it out and tried to snack on everyone else's so she'd have some of theirs and all of her own.
So in terms of consumption, it was four paws up.
Then I looked at the feeding instructions. (Yes, I know. I'm supposed to read the instructions first but IT'S CAT FOOD! You put it in a bowl and give it to the cats.)
Here's what it says: Feed one can per 3 - 3-1/2 lbs of body weight daily. Adjust as needed. Divide into two or more meals. That means that Large-I-Will-Eat-Anything Cat would require 4.85 cans of this stuff a day. Since a 12 pack of Ocean Whitefish Pate retails for $19.98, that means that, to feed Large-I-Will-Eat-Anything Cat alone would cost more than $8 a day. I love my cats but I'd also like to be able to purchase other necessities of life... like dog food.
So even if the cats beg me to go out and buy 50 cases to get them through the week, until I win the lottery,I won't be purchasing this. (The cats pointed out that, since I don't buy lottery tickets, my odds are poor. So I guess they are out of luck in the Beyond Pate Department.)
After giving her this food for just 2 months I've noticed a significant change in my cat! She has lost weight, her coat feels much better, and she is much more active and can finally jump up on my desk! She also loves the food! I add a tiny bit of water to it just to help fill her up and hydrate her. It gets nice and "goopy" but also chunky! It comes out to about the same amount of food I was giving her before with the added grain food, so it must be something to do with it.
If there is any downside to this food, it's that it makes my cat's breath smell pretty bad for a little bit! I can live with that though because her quality of live has improved.
