Commercial cat food is often of poor quality and is made from offal - waste. They are digested too quickly. The cat walks hungry all the time, in addition, dry food provokes the development of urolithiasis. Therefore, it is not recommended to feed your pet with dry food alone. And if the cat is already used to them, it is better to wean it.
Manufacturers of factory feed advertise them as a universal product that already contains everything you need - vitamins, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and microelements. Perhaps this is the case with expensive feed. When translating a cat to natural food, it is important not to lose sight of this advertising truth. A cat's diet should include not only meat, but also cereals to help the intestines, calcium-rich dairy products to strengthen bone tissue, vegetables to improve digestion, vision and other functions. In addition, it is necessary to feed the cat with special vitamins, which will help you choose a veterinarian, in accordance with the age, constitution and lifestyle of the cat. Remember, table food and natural cat food are not the same thing. For the animal, it will be necessary to cook separately, without salt and spices.
It should also be remembered that some foods are prohibited for cats. These are sausages that can be toxic to the animal, onions and garlic, most herbs. Also, veterinarians do not recommend giving fish to cats, although they love it very much and are happy to exchange dry food for such a delicacy. Eggs are not contraindicated for all cats, but they are often allergic. Try giving your cat some eggs and watch closely for her reaction. Raw meat boosts immunity, but remember that raw pork can cause severe stomach upset in your cat.
Monosodium glutamate and other chemical flavor enhancers are added to dry food. This is done to ensure that the cats only feed, generating a large income for the producers. Accordingly, it is not easy to wean a cat from such food. First, add water to dry food, soak it. Try to switch your cat to canned food from the same manufacturer. As a rule, this is not difficult, since canned food has even more flavor enhancers, and cats are happy to switch to them. Then, by 1/10, start adding natural food to the canned food. After 5 days, when you have to mix canned food and food in half, try giving your cat only natural food. If she refuses to eat it right away, do not despair, let the animal get hungry. Cats can go without food for a long time, but remember - ordinary fluffy couch potatoes, not used to stress, cannot go hungry for more than two days.
If the strike continues, go back to mixing feed and natural food from the moment you left off, that is, in half. After another five days, add canned food just for the scent. And gradually try to eliminate them. The cat's stomach will be rebuilt and will be able to work fully again, again assimilating natural products.
