Choosing the right cat food may not be quite as simple as you expect. It's preferable that you don't grab the first generic type of food you see in a supermarket or dollar store, because it's very likely that the food won't provide all that's needed for a good cat diet. Because the government requires ingredients and nutritional information to be put on food labels, these are a good place to start when hunting for the right food to give your cat.

Some cats eat whatever food is presented to them while others turn their noses up at almost everything. This choosiness is just one of the factors you need to consider in deciding which brand of cat food to give your pet. The primary factor, naturally, is how good the ingredients are, so you'll need to do some investigating. But sometimes the best cat food for your own cat also depends on other things like the state of their health and teeth, or even whether they are overweight.

Use expensive cat food as treats
Moses Wright
Nutrition
Cat owners often get samples of cat food in the mail. Many times that cat food sample is of a cat food that is more expensive than the cat owner normally uses. That cat owner can use expensive cat food as treats. If a cat owner uses a sample of cat food in place of the cat's regular food, the cat can get an upset stomach. Cats do not easily adjust to abrupt dietary changes. When the cat owner only gives the cat a small portion of the cat food sample as treats, the cat is much less likely to get an upset stomach from the change. Only a portion of the cat food sample should be used each day.
