Helpful Tips for Improving Your Cat’s Diet

  • Avoid toxic foods. Cats have delicate digestive systems and can be poisoned by certain foods, including:
    • Dairy products
    • Chocolate
    • Caffeine
    • Grapes and raisins
    • Onions, chives, and garlic
    • Undercooked meat and eggs
  • Choose canned food over kibble. Cats are carnivores and need a diet high in animal protein. Wet food is typically higher in animal protein than kibble.
  • Feed your cat small amounts several times per day. In the wild, cats are regularly hunting and eating as they catch prey. It’s best to mimic this and feed your cat small amounts several times per day, rather than let them gorge once per day.
  • Introduce new foods gradually. If you’re introducing your cat to a new type of food, it’s best to work it in gradually rather than make a total switch abruptly. This will help your cat’s digestive system acclimate.
  • Talk to your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can help you create a dietary plan that’s right for your cat’s individual needs.

In addition, keep your cat healthy via:

  • Regular checkups. Your cat should see the veterinarian for regular checkups, even if they seem healthy. This will help the veterinarian catch any health problems early on.
  • Providing plenty of water. Cats need access to fresh, clean water at all times.
  • Keeping the litter box clean. A dirty litter box can lead to litter box avoidance and other health problems.
  • Providing plenty of exercise. Cats need exercise to stay healthy and maintain a healthy weight.
  • Spaying or neutering your cat. Spaying or neutering your cat can help prevent unwanted litters, as well as some health problems, such as uterine cancer and testicular cancer.

By following these tips, you can help your cat live a long and healthy life.
