Ask Dr Elliot: What should I feed my indoor cat? There are too many choices!
By Dr. Jill Elliot
A Pawfun Blog reader asks: I have a one year-old indoor cat. With the abundance of information on the Internet, I am confused about the best way to feed him. What do you recommend?
Read the labels and buy the foods that do not list “by products” anywhere in the ingredients. Examples of good cat food brands are Wellness, Petguard, EaglePack, Merrick – and there are many, many more.
Canned food has 80% moisture, while dry food only has 15% moisture. Cats are better off getting their moisture from their food rather than drinking constantly. Most cats on dry food drink a lot because they are dehydrated.
How much to feed your cat
One 3.5 ounce can twice a day is right for most 9 to 10 pound cats. Or one 5.5 ounce can (1/2 in the am and 1/2 in the pm).
