We recommend providing food for your cat that contains taurine, which is an essential amino acid for optimal heart and eye health. We also
recommend keeping treats to only about 5-10% of your cat’s diet to keep them in proper shape. If your pet is exhibiting abnormal dietary patterns or if they are vomiting or have diarrhea, bring them into our office. Never feed your cat anything containing onion or garlic powder because it can be poisonous for your cat. Always provide fresh water for your cat; you can even get a water fountain that keeps water moving until you are able to refill it.Providing your cat with canned food is a great way to make sure that they are properly hydrated. Cats tend to not drink as much water as they may need, so feeding them canned food provides moisture. It is also a low-carb alternative to dry food, and may be helpful for cats who suffer from urinary issues, diabetes, feline obesity, and other illnesses. Consult with a veterinarian at Meyerland Animal Clinic to find out more about how to properly care for your cat’s nutrition.
