The best food you can give your senior cat
Many pet owners assume that their senior cat needs to be fed special food, but that's not necessarily the case. Non-commercial food products that are based on a cat's ancestral diet are designed for cats of all ages and will actually improve your senior cat's health. If, on the other hand, you feed your senior cat commercial food packed with starches (carbohydrates), you most certainly want to consider making a switch.
Cats are carnivores, and therefore it is essential that your senior cat gets high levels of protein. If your cat has been fed commercial kibble all of its life, shifting your cat's diet to a more meat-based diet will ensure that your pet gets the right nutrients he needs to thrive. Wysong food products
are made for animals of all ages and can be fed to both healthy and sick cats.
Along with taking your cat off of a commercial food diet, you will also want to watch portion control. As cats age, they start to become less active and therefore gain weight more quickly. Overweight animals are more susceptible to diseases so it's important to monitor your cat's weight and adjust portions when necessary. Feeding a biologically appropriate, high meat content diet assists with this potential issue.
Your senior cat deserves the best, so feed him high quality, meat-based food that will improve his health and help him live a disease-free life.
