With that in mind, we prepared the following list of the 12 most popular healthy foods for cats.
But! Before you buy here are some things to consider before choosing your cat’s next meal …
- Discuss with your veterinarian which cat food provides the best nutrition based on age, breed, and size.
- Know your cat’s health condition. Some cat foods are formulated to address specific health issues such as urinary tract, obesity, and digestive issues.
- Read the labels. All cat foods disclose the ingredients on the label.
- Look for foods that are grain free, and are high in the following: protein, fiber, fruits, and vegetables.
- Avoid foods that contain by-products, and artificial flavoring.
