Podcast | Kiara – How to Choose the Right Food for Your Cat


Cats, like any other pet, need a healthy diet filled with all the vitamins and minerals their bodies require to be their best selves. However, each cat is a little bit different, and sometimes, what works for one cat will not work for others. This begs the question, which cat food is the right choice?

1. Choosing The Healthiest Cat Food

Your best bet in choosing the healthiest cat food is to first get your cat tested for any food sensitives or allergies that they may have. From there, you’ll want to search for cat foods that have simple, all-natural, healthy ingredients that your cat needs! Keep in mind that some cat species need different nutrients, so be sure to first talk to your vet and maybe even get their recommendation.

2. Consider Grains

Grains can be hit or misspending the age of your cat and your cat’s personal digestion. Whereas some cats have no problem digesting grains, others do. You’ll need to test this out first by giving your cat a type of food with and without grains and seeing if either one results in a poor reaction from your cat. If nothing happens, either way, your cat is in the clear.

3.Try Canned or Dry Food

Some cats respond better (or just prefer) dry food over wet food and vice versa. The best way to test this out is by giving your cat both and seeing which one your cat seems to prefer. You’ll know which one the winner is based on how much is left in the bowl, how long it took for your cat to eat it, and even by seeing how your cat responds to getting a different one.

4. Research Your Cat Food Brand
