There are different types of cat food: dry cat foods, in the form of granules, and wet or soft cat food – stews and pastes. Manufacturers produce special feeds for kittens, adult and elderly cats, for animals of certain breeds. For your feline friends with health problems, you can find sensitive stomach cat food, hypoallergenic cat food, diabetic cat food, low protein cat food, and even vegan cat food.
Food is produced with different tastes: chicken, duck, rabbit, tuna, or seafood.
Which is better: dry or wet food
Both dry and wet feeds have their advantages and disadvantages. Dry food is convenient to store. It can be poured into a sealed package and each time take a small portion, which is needed for one meal.
Wet foods are usually packaged in jars without an airtight lid, so they should be stored in the refrigerator. If the cat doesn’t eat the can after a few days, the open food may deteriorate and it is better to throw it away.
Dry food contributes to the mechanical cleaning of the animal’s teeth. But in wet foods calorie content is four times less than in dry ones. In addition, they accelerate the removal of salts from the cat’s body, as they are saturated with moisture.
Veterinarians recommend combining dry and wet food in the cat’s diet – this will satisfy the animal’s need for a varied diet. It is better not to mix the feed in one bowl, but to give it in turn. For example, you can give dry food in the morning, wet for lunch, dry in the evening, and wet again at night. In this case, it is important to use the feed of one manufacturer and observe the dosage so that the animal does not overeat.
How to choose food by cat age
You can find food for kittens under the age of two months, up to six months and up to a year. For the smallest kittens, feed is made only in the form of paste – their teeth have not yet been strengthened and can not gnaw dry food. Dry granules can be added to the kitten’s diet from the age of three months, but at first, it is better to soak them with warm water.
For grown cats produce feeds of different calories – for outdoor animals and indoor cat food.
Foods for older cats take into account the needs of older animals, they can help when the pet refuses to take regular food.
Why do we need therapeutic feed?
In case of health problems, the veterinarian can prescribe a specialized feed to the cat. It will help to cope with the consequences of the disease and eliminate the causes of unpleasant syndromes. Foods have been developed for cats with diabetes, suffering from joint pain, with diseases of the liver, kidneys and heart.
Food for neutered cats helps to cope with possible problems after surgery and helps to normalize the urinary system. They can feed the cat constantly or add it in parts to regular food.
The hair removal feed helps clean the cat’s intestines after washing, during which the animal swallows some of the hair.
Special nutrition for pregnant cats takes into account the needs of the mother during the gestation and feeding of kittens.
To reduce the risk of diabetes in a cat, a veterinarian can prescribe a grain-free (gluten-free) food, where vegetables and fruits are not the sources of carbohydrates.
Special feeds are also available for animals with food allergies. For example, mono-protein diets are made from only one type of meat, you can choose a source of protein that does not cause problems in the animal.
