Cat food is crucial to meeting these needs since it offers a range of solutions suitable for different nutritional requirements, tastes, and lifestyles. In order to make sure your pets enjoy healthy lives, you must understand the differences between cat food and its forms, raw diets, and specific veterinarian formulae.

A common concern raised by newbie cat owners is whether they should get their cat canned or dry food. The good news is that most commercial cat feeds, whether they are wet or dry, are a great source of nutrition. But there are many aspects to consider when choosing the best cat food such as

  • your cat’s health conditions
  • your cat’s weight
  • the availability of food choices

Together with your veterinarian, you can decide what will be best for your cat's health: dry food, canned food, or a combination of the two. In this article, we will be focusing on Dry Cat Food: its properties and benefits as well as drawbacks.

 

Dry Cat Food Formulation

Typically, dry cat food is sold as tiny, dry pellets or kibbles. Compared to wet food, it has a longer shelf life and is easier to feed and store. About 10% of dry cat food is made up of water, and the remaining 90% is made up of dry ingredients like vitamins, lipids, and carbs. Meats, vitamins, minerals, and lipids are combined and cooked under high pressure and temperature to produce dry food, which helps to break down starches more easily. The food can then be dipped in fat to make it more appetizing. In fact, dry cat food contains more carbohydrates than other sources.

Dry Cat Food Benefits

  • Dry Cat Food is less expensive than canned food so if you are on a budget, this is the best option for you.
  • Additionally, dry food may be kept outside for far longer than canned food and does not need to be kept in the refrigerator. If you overlook portion control, this is a good alternative, but any food that is left over at the end of the day should be thrown out.
  • Since there is no presence of wet components in it, Dry food helps cats promote dental health by reducing the chances of plaque or tartar buildup.

Dry Cat Food Drawbacks

  • Research has indicated a connection between giving dry cat food and obesity. This may be because many cats who consume dry food are frequently fed at-will by their owners, who are unaware of the exact amount of food their cats consume each day.
  • Additionally, when your cat is free-fed, it might be difficult to detect when they are not eating, which can lead to the opposite issue. For both reasons, you should keep an eye on or measure your cat's daily food intake.
  • Chewing dry food may also be more difficult for elderly cats with dental disease or those who have had some of their teeth extracted. 

 

Options to Choose From

No matter which form of food you choose for your cat, make sure they get the proper nutrients from it. Make sure that meat and meat by-products are included in the principal ingredients, by carefully reading the label on the back of the package. Cats are carnivores, thus their diet needs to be strong in protein and provide the right quantity of vital fats and amino acids.

There are a lot of options to choose from in the market such as Drools, Whiskas, Felicia, Jungle, and Smart Heart. The ideal cat food for your cat will depend on their specific demands in terms of nutrition and lifestyle. Your cat might need an ample amount of food if it is an adult, whereas an overweight cat requires a low fat diet.
