Description

Some pets appear to be sensitive or intolerant to certain ingredients and additives and this can cause a variety of problems. Which? customer scores are based on how satisfied customers are with the brand overall, and whether or not they’d recommend it if asked. The most common food intolerances appear to be colourings, sugars, wheat, milk and soya. Obviously not all pets are sensitive to these things, but if the effects keep re-occurring it’s best to consult your vet. My cat's not eating Unlike dogs, who thrive on grains and vegetables in their dog food, cats are obligate carnivores: their metabolism has evolved to need some ingredients that can only be found in meat. While it is, in theory, possible to feed cats adequately from a home-made diet that includes meat, it makes more sense to use commercial cat food that has been formulated by companies who employ professional nutritional experts so that their products – labelled as “complete” – include everything your cat needs to thrive. They also need arachidonic acid, an essential fatty acid that is only found in animal tissue and the preformed version of Vitamin A, which again is only found in meat. They normally obtain Vitamin B12 from animal tissues as well.

There is some debate regarding whether one is better than the other. The BVA says 'there's not enough evidence to recommend one over the other, there are advantages to both. A vet will be able to recommend the most suitable diet.' Wet cat foods are very popular and are generally very appetising to cats. However, they are more expensive as the recommended feeding amounts are generally higher. In our member survey, 92% of cat owners said they feed a dry diet. Owners who feed their cat wet food should also monitor their pet's teeth, as wet foods tend to predispose them to dental disease. Perhaps another animal or a new baby has been introduced to the family? Or you've recently bought a bowl or changed their feeding area? If a cat’s surroundings change suddenly, this can cause behaviour like going off their food. Give your cat a quiet, comfortable place to eat, away from noise and distraction if possible. It isn’t always easy to get it right. Cats need a complete and balanced diet providing protein, carbohydrate, fats, minerals, vitamins and fibre, as well as some very specific nutrients such as taurine and essential fatty acids. Food for cats in the prime of life, usually between one and seven years old, will be balanced and nutritionally complete, meeting all of an adult cat’s needs.Wet (or moist) food tends to be more palatable than dry food, and a wet diet increases a cat’s fluid intake, which is recommended by vets for cats with a number of health issues. Dry foods are usually the most economical and easiest for you to feed and store. Dry cat food can be left out all day for your cat to nibble on and is beneficial for their teeth and gums. What's key is the amount you feed your furry companion, as pet obesity is rapidly on the rise. There are also a number of specialised diets available for cats with specific medical issues such as urinary tract disease, kidney disease, allergic skin disease, and others. These are usually used on the recommendation of the vet who is treating your pet. How much should I feed my cat? We know you love to pamper your pets - so let us help you to provide them with their favourite food for less when you head in-store. If you're investing in your pets, we also have guides to the best vacuums for pet hair and the best dog food.

Your older cat may not be able to digest their food as easily as they could when they were younger. That means they may not absorb nutrients as efficiently as before. Putting your cat on a suitable diet will help their body to deal with these changes, and should increase both the length and quality of their life. If you think your four-legged friend might be overweight, book in a visit with your local vet for advice and an action plan. How much should I feed my cat? Unwanted Food or Drink Products - Once supply conditions are broken, there are a number of factors outside of our control that can affect the quality of a product. Therefore perishable goods such as food and drink cannot be returned. Nutritional needs change as pets grow older. A diet for a growing kitten is very different to one formulated for a fifteen year old elderly cat. For reasons of hygiene and safety, personal grooming products, cosmetics or items of intimate clothing cannot be returned.Justine Shotton of the BVA told us there is a risk of nutritional deficiencies with feeding raw food (eg low taurine in cats or high vitamin A), and risks associated with handling raw meats – both for pets and members of the household. You should also pay attention to your pet’s behaviour: if they seem ravenously hungry, looking for more, then you should give them some more. Or if they leave uneaten food in the bowl, give them less the next time.

We know that many cats can be selective about the food they eat - and we also know that it’s important to avoid poor quality, nutritionally sparse products. The easiest, and most cost effective, way to meet your cat’s nutritional needs is to use food that has been scientifically formulated to be balanced by a nutritionist employed by a pet food manufacturer. All pet food that is labelled as “complete” is legally obliged to provide all the nutrients that a cat needs. Are pet store cat foods better than supermarket cat foods? Your cat’s natural behaviour will continue throughout their life – and they'll probably stay active and curious for years and years. In fact, sometimes you’ll find it hard to believe they're getting older at all! Food for cats up to one year of age should have higher levels of vitamins and proteins, designed to promote healthy growth.Many people feed their cats dry food ad libitum, continually topping up the food in the bowl, and leaving it out all the time. While this may be acceptable with lean cats, with the increasing incidence of overweight cats, this is not always recommended: instead, offer your cat frequent smaller meals (up to four meals a day) and feed small amounts each time. Some manufacturers produce frozen and freeze-dried raw cat food in both complete and complementary varieties, and the PFMA states that commercially prepared raw cat food marked as ‘complete’ has been formulated to provide the nutritional balance a cat needs in its daily diet, so if you are keen to switch, this is a safer bet.

Raw meat may seem like a more natural diet for cats, but vets have reservations about this way of feeding for two main reasons. Common symptoms include, lethargy, aggressive or hyperactive behaviour, chronic skin and ear problems, slime and jelly being passed with the stools, and flatulence, bloating and weight gain or loss.
