KOME feed composition
KOME feeds are 100% free of GMOs, artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives. Plus, they have a gluten-free variety.
In summary, the main components of KOME feed are the following:
- Food for Adult Dogs with Chicken and Lamb: 20% hydrolyzed chicken meat, 15% dehydrated lamb and 7% dehydrated fish.
- Cereal Free Feed with Chicken, Tuna and Vegetables: 32% hydrolyzed chicken meat, 10% dehydrated tuna, 20% potatoes and vegetables (peas, carrots and leeks).
- Mini Dog Food with Chicken and Salmon: 25% hydrolyzed chicken, 3% salmon, 15% brown rice and less than 60% vegetable protein extracts (pea, corn, potato)
- I think for Puppy Dogs with Chicken and Rice: 25% hydrolyzed chicken and 80% animal protein from chicken, duck and turkey.
- Food for Cats with Chicken and Tuna: 30% hydrolyzed chicken, brown rice (15%), potato protein, peas, animal protein (80% chicken, duck and turkey).
Food preservation processes
It is also important to note that KOME uses two types of processes to preserve meat: hydrolyzation and dehydration. Dehydration is one of the most common preservation processes in feed, where water molecules are removed from the feed. On the other hand, hydrolyzing or hydrolysis adds, on the other hand, water molecules to the food, in addition to bacteria, enzymes, acid or alkalis, in a way that allows its good conservation and, in turn, facilitate digestion of cats or dogs. Furthermore, hydrolysis enhances the taste of food, a very important detail among animal guardians.
Analyzing their composition, we have observed that they have between 7 and 8.5% ash, which are the charred remains of food, which, we must remember, are healthy for our pets, as they are rich in minerals. Of course, in its fair measure. Taking into account that the percentages of ash in a balanced diet must be between 6 and 11%, we could deduce that, in the case of KOME, the percentage of ashes is not excessively low (the lower the percentage, the higher the food quality), but it is not very high either. Therefore, we would be facing a feed of medium-high quality.
On the other hand, all their feed is enriched (except slight variations) with:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin D3
- Vitamin E
- Omega 3
- Omega 6
Of special mention are also its croquettes, which are little size even that of feed for adult dogs and cats, which is also ideal for senior dogs, who tend to have more problems, on many occasions, with the size of the kibbles. As a guide, the sizes of the croquettes go from 5 to 15 mm.

Opinions about KOME feed
At AnimalWised we have had the chance to test for a week various types of KOME feed, 3 for dogs and 1 for cats. This has been our experience.
Opinions about KOME feed for dogs
We have been able to test adult feed, mini feed and puppy feed with Maya, a 5-year-old English Cocker Spaniel positive for leishmania who was previously being fed Ownat brand feed, another natural feed for dogs..
The first thing we could see is that Maya enjoyed eating, especially the Mini Dog Food with Chicken and Salmon, which initially generated a very positive opinion. We have also verified that eat more kibble than with Ownat brand feed, despite the fact that the portions have been the same.
On the other hand, there has not been any type of alteration in his stool and the coat looks good. However, a week is not enough time to determine the effect of a feed on the animal's coat..
Opinions about KOME food for cats
On the other hand, we have tested KOME cat food with Meuli, a common 10-year-old European cat with obesity problems who regularly consumed Royal Canin cat food..
As with Maya, we have been able to verify that Meuli has been fascinated by the flavor of the feed. We have also noticed that it has made bowel movements more regularly, which is a good sign, since it seems that the feed has facilitated the intestinal tract.
On the other hand, both his feces and his mantle had good aspect. As for the hairballs, Meuli hasn't had any, which is positive. However, it is important to clarify that your previous feed was specially formulated to prevent hairballs..
Regarding the control of the feline's weight, it is too early to know if KOME, together with exercise and other veterinary guidelines, would help him lose weight.
We therefore deduce that KOME is a brand of natural feed from mid-high range and suitable for all pockets. Their croquettes are very tasty for our pets, probably because it is largely hydrolyzed food. The size of the feed is also suitable for dogs and cats of any age. Also, it looks like a very transparent mark, since both the back of the feed bags and their website show the percentages of the ingredients, the nutritional additives and the analytical components very clearly. On the other hand, the fact that they donate part of their profits to different associations speaks volumes about their love for animals. Without a doubt, KOME is a brand that we recommend at AnimalWised.
