Foster & Smith Chicken & Brown Rice Formula Hairball Control Dry Cat Food - Page 1 of 5

2 Chicken meal Chicken meal - dry rendered (cooked down) chicken tissues which are ground up into a meal-provides a highly digestible, delicious protein source with essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, and minerals. Brown rice The unpolished rice remaining once the kernels have been removed, brown rice contains carbohydrates and fiber. The bran portion of brown rice also contains B vitamins. Rice Rice provides another delicious, high-quality carbohydrate source in the doctors' formula. Rice gives your cat much-needed energy. Chicken fat Chicken fat, a high-quality source of fat energy and a delicious flavor enhancer, contains essential fatty acids (especially linoleic acid, an Omega-6 fatty acid) for healthy skin and coat. Beet pulp Beet pulp, a moderate fiber source, contains fiber and sugar to stimulate "good" bacterial growth in the colon, which can improve intestinal health and improve stool firmness. Cellulose Powdered cellulose is purified, mechanically disintegrated cellulose prepared by processing alpha cellulose obtained as a pulp from fibrous plant materials. Cellulose is used to provide an increased level of fiber in the diet, which can help with weight loss. Fish meal Fish meal provides high quality fish protein, plus Omega 3 essential fatty acids, including EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and arachidonic acids. Egg product In addition to essential fatty acids including arachidonic acid - an Omega 6 fatty acid that promotes healthy skin and a beautiful coat - eggs provide great taste, high-quality protein, and fat energy. Natural flavor Natural flavors are created when a source such as spices, fruits, vegetables, herbs, meats, seafood, poultry, eggs, or dairy products is roasted, heated, or broken down with enzymes. The remaining products (essential oils, essences, extracts, and so on) are then used to enhance palatability. Natural flavors do not have any significant nutritional value, and cannot be derived from any source that is chemically altered. Whole ground flaxseed Whole flaxseed, also known as linseed, contains essential fatty acids - especially alpha-linoleic acid (an Omega 3 fatty acid) - which promote healthy skin and a lustrous coat. Flaxseed also contains vital carbohydrates, and fiber, which helps the food pass through your cat's digestive system easily and efficiently. Whole cranberries In addition to enhancing acidification of urine for urinary tract health, whole cranberries are a good source of Vitamin C. Whole sweet potatoes Whole, delicious sweet potatoes provide your cat with an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, potassium, vitamins, minerals, and beta carotene. Sweet potatoes also supply retinol, which works with Vitamin E to prevent oxidation (which results in food spoilage). After ingestion, retinol and Vitamin E act as an antioxidant, which helps prevent cell damage and cell death. Sweet potatoes also contain starch, which easily converts to sugar to boost energy. Whole blueberries Whole, natural blueberries enhance acidification of urine and help maintain your cat's urinary tract health. Tomato pomace Ingredient List: Drs. Foster & Smith Chicken & Brown Rice Formula Hairball Control Dry Cat Food - Page 2 of 5

3 Tomato pomace is a mixture of tomato skins, pulp and crushed seeds. Tomatoes contain lycopene and are a good source of Vitamin C. Lycopene and Vitamin C are both antioxidants, which neutralize 'free radicals' that cause cell damage and cell death. Tomato pomace is also a good source of healthy fiber. Herring oil Delicious herring oil, extracted from whole herring, enhances the flavor of your cat's food. Herring oil also supplies fat energy and provides essential Omega 3 fatty acids, which are reported to have several health benefits, such as decreasing arthritic stiffness and improving skin and coat condition. Casein Casein is milk protein, such as that found in cottage cheese. Casein contains 80% protein, and as an ingredient it is one of the highest-quality proteins available. Kelp Kelp, dried seaweed of the families Laminaricae and Fucaeae, contains several essential vitamins, trace minerals, and amino acids for overall good health. Kelp also contains fiber, which promotes and maintains digestive health. DL - Methionine DL-Methionine is an essential amino acid, a building block for protein. It also contains sulfur, which aids in the acidification of urine to help maintain a healthy urinary tract. Potassium chloride A high-potency potassium supplement essential for the growth of healthy nerves, muscles, and organs. Potassium chloride also helps maintain water balance in body tissues and cells, and promotes normal function of nerve cells, heart cells, skeletal-muscle cells, kidneys, and stomach secretions. Taurine Taurine is an amino acid which promotes healthy eyes, a healthy heart, and reproductive health. Vitamin E supplement Vitamin E is an antioxidant - a "free-radical scavenger" - which neutralizes "free radicals" that cause cell damage and cell death. Once these "free radicals" are neutralized, the oxidation process stops, and the affected cells can heal. Vitamin E also helps maintain normal, healthy cell function; promotes normal red-blood-cell formation; protects the tissues of the eyes, skin, liver, mouth, and lungs; improves immune system function; and works with Vitamin C to provide powerful antioxidant capabilities. Sodium ascorbate Sodium Ascorbate, a source of Vitamin C, is essential for healthy capillaries, gums, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C also aids in iron absorption and contributes to the formation of hemoglobin. Therefore, Vitamin C can help prevent anemia. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant - a "free-radical scavenger" that helps prevent cell damage. It also reduces the development of carcinogenic nitrosamines. Vitamin C is also active in maintaining a healthy immune system, especially in preventing urinary infections. Vitamin C also helps form collagen in connective tissue, increases calcium absorption, and aids in adrenal gland function. Vitamin C is not included in the AAFCO feline nutrient profile. Garlic Flavorful, fresh, whole garlic not only enhances the taste of your cat's food, it also contains allicin - a valuable amino acid found in garlic oil - and exhibits some antioxidant characteristics which promote and maintain cell health. Dehydrated Lactobacillus acidolphilus fermentation product Dehydrated Bacillus subtilis fermentation product Ingredient List: Drs. Foster & Smith Chicken & Brown Rice Formula Hairball Control Dry Cat Food - Page 3 of 5

4 Dehydrated Bifidobacterium thermophilum fermentation product Dehydrated Bifidobacterium longum fermentation product Dehydrated Enterococcus faecium fermentation product Choline chloride Choline chloride is a supplement added to your cat's food to provide adequate levels of choline, a B vitamin found in eggs, liver, and soy. Choline chloride helps maintain the health of your cat's liver and thymus; boosts cell health by maintaining cell membrane integrity; and promotes healthy brain and nervous system function. Zinc amino acid complex Zinc amino acid complex is a form of chelated zinc. Chelated forms of minerals may be more easily absorbed by the intestine. Zinc is necessary in converting carbohydrates into energy, and required for proper wound healing, a healthy immune system, growth, and reproduction. Iron amino acid complex Iron amino acid complex is a form of chelated iron. Chelated forms of minerals may be more easily absorbed from the intestine. Iron is a key component of helmoglobin in red blood cells, which carries oxygen to all tissues of the body. Iron is also necessary for the proper functioning of many of the enzymes in the body. Manganese amino acid complex Manganese amino acid complex is a form of chelated manganese. Chelated forms of minerals may be more easily absorbed from the intestine. Manganese is necessary for the proper functioning of many body enzymes, and is required for proper metabolism of lipids and carbohydrates, and the production of healthy bone. Copper amino acid complex Copper amino acid complex is a form of chelated copper. Chelated forms of minerals may be more easily absorbed from the intestine. Copper is essential for the functioning of many body systems, including the production of red blood cells, formation and maintenance of healthy connective tissue and bone, and the proper functioning of the heart, immune system and nervous system. Copper also has antioxidant properties, which help prevent cell damage. Niacin Niacin, also called nicotinic acid or nicotinamide, is a source of Vitamin B3 essential for healthy nerves, brain function, and skin. Niacin is also important in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and it reduces cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. Vitamin B12 supplement Vitamin B12 aids in the metabolism of protein and the transport of methyl groups, particularly the two essential amino acids Methionine and Cyteine. This B vitamin also helps maintain healthy blood, hair, kidneys, and thyroid. Vitamin A supplement Vitamin A supplement helps boost the immune system; prevent respiratory infections; and promote healthy bones, teeth, hair, skin, eyes, digestive system, reproductive system, lungs, and mucous membranes. Vitamin A acetate is also a building block of rhodopsin, a compound in the retina responsible for sight in partial darkness. Calcium pantothenate Ingredient List: Drs. Foster & Smith Chicken & Brown Rice Formula Hairball Control Dry Cat Food - Page 4 of 5

5 A high-potency Vitamin B5 supplement, calcium pantothenate is also called Pantothenic. It helps convert amino acids in your cat's body and is important for healthy skin. It promotes normal growth and development and aids in the release of energy from foods. Thiamine hydrochloride Thiamine hydrochloride is a form of Vitamin B1, which maintains normal function of the nervous system, muscles, and heart, and is necessary for normal growth and development. Riboflavin supplement Riboflavin supplement provides your cat with a good source of Vitamin B2, an antioxidant. In addition to helping to prevent cell damage, Riboflavin promotes healthy ligaments, aids in the release of energy from food, maintains healthy mucous membranes (in conjunction with Vitamin A), activates Vitamin B6, and is essential for the conversion of tryptophan to niacin. Riboflavin also maintains the health of the nervous system, skin, and eyes. Cobalt proteinate Cobalt proteinate provides your cat with an extremely usable source of cobalt. Cobalt, a trace element and essential mineral, is a component of Vitamin B12. Cobalt proteinate provides your cat with a good source of Vitamin B12. Also known as cyanocobalamin, Vitamin B12 aids in normal DNA synthesis; promotes normal nervous system function; promotes normal fat and carbohydrate metabolism; helps in protein synthesis; and promotes growth, cell development, and manufacture of nerve cell covering. Vitamin D3 supplement Vitamin D3 supplement provides your cat with an adequate supply of Vitamin D3, which is essential for calcium and phosphorus metabolism and bone calcification. Vitamin D3 is also important for maintaining a healthy immune system, nerve system, and muscle system. Folic acid Folic acid, a B vitamin, is important for growth, as well as healthy blood and skin. It also helps maintain the nervous system, intestinal tract, sex organs, and white blood cells. Biotin Biotin, also known as Vitamin H, is active in the metabolism of fat, carbohydrates, and protein, as well as the formation of fatty acids. Biotin also promotes the health of sweat glands, nerve tissue, bone marrow, blood cells, skin, and hair. Pyridoxine hydrochloride Pyridoxine hydrochloride provides your cat with a good source of Vitamin B6, which is essential for healthy tissue growth through the proper metabolism of proteins. Pyridoxine hydrochloride is also involved in the metabolism of the precursor of heme - a vital component of blood - and helps the brain function normally. Potassium iodide Potassium iodide is a source of the mineral, potassium, which is essential for the proper functioning of nerves, muscle contraction, and maintaining the correct ph of the blood. Menadione dimethylpyrimidinol bisulfite A complex source of Vitamin K activity, menadione dimethylpyrimidinol bisulfite (also known as phytonadione) is essential for blood coagulation. It also promotes bone health as well as normal growth and development. Sodium selenite Sodium selenite provides your cat with a good source of the essential mineral selenium, which is important for healthy muscles and nerves.
