What are the benefits of dry cat food vs wet cat food? I heard from the lady in the PAWS shelter that moist food helps with keeping their urinary tract infection down. Since then mine gets a can a week split into 4 portions. A lot of people dont give their cats canned food and they are fine. My cat always has dry available plus he gets some canned food twice a day. Because he likes the canned food. My cat loves wet cat food compared to dry. I give it to him about every other day or so just as a treat. I have always given my cat both. Not very tasty or close to their meaty food theyd get in the outdoors if they hunted. I buy natural, healthy types of cat food, they put a lot of garbage in pet foods these days so read labels. I get Natures Choice which is not expensive either. Dry cat food helps your cat not get tartar build up on her teeth. Wet food is yummier to her though.
My sister always gave her cat a mix because the dry was good for her teeth, and the wet was easier to digest. I give my cats wet food every now and then as just a I love you snack but its like once or week or sometimes once a month even. They do not need it at all unless you feel there is a weight issue by means of the cat is to thin and needs a little more coaxing to eat more. Cats can become dependent on it quickly and will even cry for it. That gets annoying believe me! So if you do not have a weight issue continue what you are doing or give him a tiny bit every now and then. In my experince, it doesnt really matter if its wet or dry, but the quality and nutritional value of the food is what matters.
D hope this helps. You should try to mix some in sometime. They have can covers if you dont use the whole can. But I wouldnt do it every day. I started to give my dog the mix after a year of only dry. Then one day I ran out and she wouldnt eat the dry alone. It took a while to get her back to it so now its like a once a week or twice a month treat. Dry food is better for the teethWet food is better for enticing underweight cats to eat more. Other than that, there are far more nutritional variations between brands than between wet vs dry. Wet cat food can give your cat cavities and other tooth problems. A lot of the gravies used have sugar in it. If your cat is happy with her food and not overweight I wouldnt worry about it. To read another opinion on dry food as toothbrush go to:www.
Besides a high amount of omega-6 fatty acids, cottonseed oil has a similar protein structure to peanuts, so people who are allergic to peanuts may have a serious allergic reaction to this oil, as well. However, the FDA does not require an allergy label on the oil - even though peanut oils can be fatal. If you still believe that saturated fat and cholesterol are a direct cause of heart disease then safflower oil probably seems like a healthy swap. Previous studies had found that by substituting animal fats with vegetable oils such as safflower, cholesterol levels would indeed drop. However, what the earlier studies failed to evaluate was the high ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats in these oils and that the amount of omega-6 fatty acids in the American diet was growing astronomically. Researchers now have evidence that it may not be cholesterol that kills, but omega-6's. When a group of individuals replaced animal fats with omega-6-rich safflower oil, their cholesterol levels decreased, however, the rates of death from cardiovascular disease and coronary artery disease increased significantly as compared to those consuming the animal fats.
