Solid Gold is one of the top brands of pet food. The meat they use in all of their foods is all guaranteed to come from healthy sources, unlike many other companies that use unhealthy meat products such as animal digest. Indigo Moon if formulated with high quality chicken meal, fresh chicken, and ocean fish. It is extremely palatable, even to the most discerning cat. Solid Gold also uses only healthy fats in their foods, such as canola and salmon oil. Indigo Moon does not contain any added animal fat, sugar, or artificial preservatives.
Indigo Moon is a gluten-free formula of dry cat food that uses chicken as its main protein source. Chicken and chicken meal are both within the first five ingredients. Chicken is an easily digestible, lean protein, making this food a great maintenance food. Chicken provides selenium, a trace mineral which is essential for the production of glutathione, a powerful immune-boosting and cancer-fighting enzyme. It also contains niacin, a B vitamin that helps protect DNA from cell damage and also has cancer-preventative properties. The high levels of Vitamin B6 in the food help cats to regulate blood sugar by helping their bodies process carbohydrates.
Indigo Moon includes salmon oil, an omega 3 fatty acid that has shown positive benefits in helping cats with disease. Omega 3 fatty acids are among the most commonly used nutritional supplements used in treating pets. Veterinarians first used omega-3 fatty acids in the treatment of allergies, but it is now recommend for a wide variety of conditions that range from arthritis to high cholesterol and kidney disease. Fish oil also provides anti-inflammatory effects and can help relieve itching from various skin conditions, as well as help with coat health.
Omega 3 oils support heart and joint health, proper immune function, and vision.
Taurine is an amino-acid that is necessary for the proper digestion of fats in the small intestine. Because cats do not produce their own taurine, they must get it through their diet. Taurine is important for many functions, such as reproduction and heart health. The deficiency of taurine can lead not only a lack of fertility, but also abnormalities and complications in kittens. It is important for eye health because a deficiency of it can cause degeneration of the retina, and ultimately blindness. Taurine is also necessary for nervous system functionality, immune responses, and also protection of respiratory tissue.
Indigo Moon is formulated to be similar to the diet of cats found in the wild, and it also includes Zinc Proteinate, Vitamin A, B6, B12, D, and, E, Manganese Proteinate, Potassium Iodide, Calcium Pantothenate, and Folic Acid.
Indigo Moon Holistic Cat Food is formulated for cats of all life stages.

Switched to this food about a year ago after comparing many different Holistic foods for my cats. I have three, they all love this food. I originally bought it for one of my cats but all three love it.
after much research...
I'm happy to have found a cat food that both my senior cat and younger adult cat can enjoy... switched to this food about 2 months ago, when I noticed my older cat was having trouble keeping food down (and that even was with a "sensitive stomach" formula premium cat food). Both cats readily eat this, without unwanted digestive problems.
No more bald spots
My cat was throwing up almost every day and losing hair. Since I switched foods, she has stopped trhowing up, and her hair has never been shinier. The bald spots have grown back over the last month, and it's softer too.
great cat food
my cat had a urinary trct infection and this food has helped him to be healthier and also no more problems
