Wet Cat Food
Wet cat food is the preferred choice for many cat owners. Proponents of the canned cat food note the following benefits:
- Wet food is a great source of hydration. Not all animals consume the proper amount of water for optimal health. A wet meal is the ideal way to work more moisture into your cat’s diet. Hydration is particularly important if your cat suffers from kidney or urinary issues.
- Canned cat food comes in a perfect portion. Some pet owners worry about how many scoops of dry food to feed their cats. Wet food is already pre-portioned out, so it’s less of a concern.
- Smells good! Older pets who may be more finicky about eating or who have lost some of their olfactory senses are usually more apt to eat savory wet cat food than dry.
- Wet food can benefit animals with certain health issues. If your cat has a small mouth, misaligned jaw, or is missing teeth, wet food provides relief and makes mealtime less arduous.
Dry Cat Food
On the other hand, there are those who swear by dry food for reasons including:
- Dry food is more economical and convenient. Dry food can be left out all day, without fear of spoilage. This is the ideal scenario if you work all day or take brief trips away from home. Dry cat food is easy to store in a large bin with a tight lid.
- It’s good for your cat’s teeth. Dry food is specially shaped to scrape tartar off the teeth as the cat chews.
- Comes in a wide variety of flavors and types. The different sizes and types make it easy to find the right type of food to meet your pet’s needs.
Mix it up! (Cats love variety in their diet)
Not surprisingly, many pet owners choose to feed their cats a blended diet of wet and dry food to “get the best of both worlds.” One approach may be to feed dry kibble in the mornings, allowing your pet to graze throughout the day, and feed wet cat food at night. Another approach might be to mix the dry and wet food together for each meal to ensure that your cat gets adequate moisture.
No matter which type of pet food you decide upon, choosing a QUALITY source should be your primary concern. We help make that job easy for you by selling premium, well-known brands that are healthy for your cat. Stop by your local Pet Goods and stock up on all cat food varieties.
