A lot of cat owners wondering, should we feed our cats, a dry or wet food?
There’s a couple things to consider here, the first is that most veterinarians would probably recommend a mix of dry and wet food, there are benefits to each.
The dry food does a good job at scraping the teeth a bit, prevents a bit of dental disease that can happen in that pet later in life. Dry food also satisfies a cat’s natural desire to eat many small meals during the whole day.
On the other hand, Wet foods can augment enjoyment and add more variety to a diet, thanks to several factors concerning textures, also The wet food has a lot of moisture in it and that’s really important for cats, because cats later in life are prone to kidney disease, and more water down the pipe is healthy for their kidneys, that’s why most of VET will recommend a combination of both wet and dry.
You’ll want to use a weight management tool regardless of what you decide to make sure that they are not getting too overweight, because that causes a lot of diseases.
These are things to consider when you’re thinking about a wet or dry food. You also want to think about handling. Simply put, some people just don’t like to deal with wet food and having to leave wet cans of food in the fridge. If it’s not wrapped well it will lose some of its flavor, some of its smell as it gets oxidized, so just handling that can be a little bit more difficult for owners and you may not want to go with it for that reason.
Finally we can say, there are no rules, it’s for each one to decide what to feed their cats. However, if feeding the both of dry and wet cat foods, you should to be careful to feed only the quantity and quality of foods that your cat needs, so as to avoid any undesirable weight gain.
