How to feed my cat in a healthy and scientific way? What are the differences between the various types of food for cats?

We are now living in a life where imbalanced nutrition or overnutrition can sometimes happen not only to the owners, but their pets too. Therefore, the cat owners need to pay extra attention to what their cats are eating when it comes to the topic of daily feeding. In general, how should cats be fed scientifically? CatKing could help you find out the answer.

Common cat staple foods include:

  • dry cat food
  • pure freeze-dried
  • canned staple cat food
  • raw bone meat
  • homemade cat meals.

Common cat snacks include:

  • various types of freeze-dried
  • canned snacks
  • cat strips
  • various flavors of small snacks.

Dry food is the main feeding method chosen by most pooper scoopers. High-quality dry food contains most of the necessary nutrients required by cats and they are rich in flavors. Chewing for dry food can also play a role in protecting your cat's teeth.

Canned food is generally divided into canned staple food and canned snacks. Cats eating canned food can well prevent the problem of insufficient water intake caused by eating dry food only, and canned food is very easy to store for a long time.

Freeze-dried is a variety of meat through low temperature dehydration to maintain the most essential appearance of meat, freeze-dried can be eaten dry or soaked in water to feed easy hydration.

Homemade cat meals are a healthy way to feed cats, fresh meat and water are the most needed food for cats, but before making homemade cat meals you must study cat nutrition and have a strong knowledge base to master the scientific nutrition ratio of cat meals.

Raw meat is the most original feeding method that can imitate cats eating in the wild life, which helps cats' to maintain their digestive system working in a good way and help improve dental health. Raw meat feeding requires strict nutritional ratios and requires a strong knowledge about cat nutrition. If your cat is eating raw meat constantly, a regular and effective internal deworming is recommended every few months for cats that comsume raw meat for a long time.

Last but not least, most cats are at risk of diabetes and urinary tract disease if they eat only dry food for a long period of time, but a diet of full canned food is not good for their dental health either. Therefore, it is never too late to learn more about what food types are healthy and nutritional for your kitty to be safe, nutritious and healthy.
