Choose canned food or dry food.
Canned and dry foods are equally beneficial for your cat. In many cases, cats eat fine dry food, supplemented with plenty of clean water. If you are not sure about your cat’s needs, consult your veterinarian to help you decide which food is best for your pet.
If your cat has problems with the urinary tract, diabetes or kidney disease, canned food is ideal, because it contains about 78% of the water. It is important for a cat with such problems to maintain water balance.
The protein and carbohydrate content of dry and liquid foods varies depending on the recipe. Dry food is more “high-calorie” because it does not have such a high moisture content as in liquid feed.
Combination of dry and canned food.
Using a combination of wet and dry food can help your cat maintain a better balance of water.
If you decide to feed your cat a combination of feeds, be especially careful not to overfeed the pet. Make sure that the food you offer your cat with food provides enough calories and vitamins.
