Vital Essentials released a new protein–pork to it Vital Cat Freeze-Dried Cat Food line in April. This novel protein launched in both Mini Nibs and Dinner Patties to give cat parents more options for their picky or sensitive eaters. Pork is often suggested for cats with sensitive stomachs due to its easy digestibility and high nutritional content, and it now joins chicken, duck, rabbit and turkey as the fifth single source protein option available in the Vital Cat line.
