Ask an Expert: Cat Diets

Q: What is a good diet for my cat?

A: Nutrition is based on a number of health needs for an individual including species, age, lifestyle (indoor versus outdoor) etc. Cats have different needs in order to provide them balanced nutrition compared to canines. For example, taurine is an essential amino acid required for companion cats.

Cats should also be fed a primarily canned or soft food diet in order to supplement adequate water intake. Human food and excessive treats should be avoided. Some dry food feeding is suggested as well but older cats used to dry food may find it difficult to adjust to a primarily canned diet.
