How to Safely Change a Cats Diet

cat eatingIt may be necessary to change your cats diet due to health or other reasons. This should never be done suddenly and never wait until your cat is hungry enough to eat the new food. A much safer way is to gradually mix in the new food with the old food. Then increase the percentage of the new food until your cat is eating only the new food. This make take several weeks so be patient.A slow dietary transition will also help the cat’s digestive system adjust to the new food gradually without causing indigestion, vomiting, diarrhea or other gastrointestinal upset. In some cases, cats just won’t like the taste or texture of a particular food and never will accept it. Cats have a highly sensitive sense of smell and a less well developed sense of taste. They tend to prefer canned food served slightly above room temperature and will rarely eat anything that has just been refrigerated.  Alway make sure that your cat has access to fresh water at all times.

Remember, your pets count!
