If you own a cat—which isn’t unlikely since there are 94 million pet cats in the United States—feeding it the right food is important. The choice between dry and wet cat food is one that is highly personal and often decided by the cat, not the owner. If you have decided to feed your pet a dry food, it’s important to note that not all dry cat foods are created equal. When selecting food for your cat, you should consider a dry cat food’s ingredients, protein and fat content, and other nutritional information. If the wide variety of foods available still leaves you uncertain on which one to buy, it’s wise to consult your veterinarian.
