Special Diet Cat Food

Is there somewhere online where I can compare the nutritional value of cat foods? Something similar to the "Nutritional Information" label on packaged human foods?

I have a cat with the earliest stages of kidney disease, which I'm told can be managed through diet alone for now. He is eating k/d
canned food and Medi-Cal Maturity
, as prescribed by the vet, but I'm looking for alternatives for a couple of reasons. 1) It's difficult to get to a vet's office as they all seem to close early (i.e. at the same time I finish work) and not be centrally located in my city. 2) The first ingredient of the Medi-cal is "animal by-products" which doesn't exactly say, 'wholesome, meaty goodness' to me.
I looked on the websites for some of the other foods in pet stores, but I cannot find any detailed "Nutritional Information" for them to compare against the k/d. I'm wondering if there is a review or consumer information site somewhere that compares food this way, to see if there's something appropriate available in a pet store. It doesn't necessarily have to be cheap - I just want to be able to buy it on a Sunday, or at 8 pm on a Tuesday.
