WET FOOD FOR CATS
If you decide to let a cat move into your household, many questions arise at the same time as the decision for a velvet paw. Good cat food is usually the top priority for many cat owners.
But even experienced cat owners constantly inform themselves about new cat foods in order to be able to offer their four-legged friends a choice of high-quality alternatives.
Cats in particular often prefer high-quality wet food. The intense smell, the high meat content and the appetisingly moist consistency of Vet-Concept wet cat food is particularly popular among the house pets.
As the name of the food suggests, wet food contains a comparatively high proportion of moisture. Especially cats and tomcats, who are typically not the best drinkers, benefit from this.
This results from the manufacturing process. The high-quality raw ingredients are mixed according to our Vet-Concept recipe, filled into tins, sealed and then cooked in the tin.
This not only ensures hygienic processing, but also good digestibility. The water contained in the raw materials remains in the wet food to a large extent and is absorbed by the cat or tomcat during feeding.
WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING WET CAT FOOD?
With all the different wet foods on the market, it is easy to lose track of what is suitable for cats.
In summary, it is important to ensure that wet food is made from natural raw materials of high quality and purity. The food should be produced in a way that it can be well utilised by the cat's body and contains all the important nutrients.
High quality food for cats should promote a harmonious metabolism. In cats, particular attention should be paid to the high protein requirement. But to maintain health, the organism also needs sufficient vitamins, minerals and fibre. There should be no added caramel, sugar or artificial additives (such as colourings, odours or preservatives).
Last but not least, the consistency of the food preferred by the cat should be taken into account. Vet-Concept wet food is paté-like and can be made softer by adding a little lukewarm water, for example.
WHY SHOULD YOU BUY HIGH-QUALITY WET FOOD FOR CATS FROM VET-CONCEPT ONLINE?
Vet-Concept has made it its goal to offer the right food for every four-legged friend.
First and foremost, this includes comprehensive advice for you to determine the individual needs of your velvet paw and then select the right cat food. In this way, incorrect purchases and unnecessary intolerances by the cat or tomcat are avoided.
Therefore, our cat food is only sold by your vet or directly by us. This way we ensure that our cat food is not given to pet owners and their pets without advice. Furthermore, only high-quality raw materials that are subject to regular quality controls are used in the processing of our wet cat food. The use of fresh salmon and meats such as rabbit, poultry and beef provides the cat's organism with many valuable amino acids and plenty of natural taurine.
All Vet-Concept formulations contain precisely dosed additions of linoleic and linolenic acids, which can meet the cat's need for essential fatty acids. This can strengthen the skin barrier and reduce the tendency to inflammation.
Our products are guaranteed to contain no sugar, caramel, artificial colours, flavours, fragrances or chemical preservatives.
WHICH VET-CONCEPT WET FOOD IS RIGHT FOR MY CAT?
When choosing a good wet food for your cat, the individual needs of your four-legged friend should be taken into account.
The age, breed, weight and possible diseases or intolerances play a role. It is also important to consider whether your outdoor cat gets a lot of exercise or whether your neutered cat is more of a leisurely cat.
Ideally, you should ask a specialist, such as a vet or the Vet-Concept nutritionists, to help you choose the right cat food.
Alternatively, you can use our feed assistant.
FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT WET FOOD FOR CATS
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CHANGE THE FOOD?
When changing cat food, we always recommend a gradual change. Even though many cats and tomcats appear robust and seem to cope well with frequent food changes, a new food can be quite demanding on the cat's body.
The stomach and intestines have to adjust to the utilisation of previously unknown or rarely fed food components. For example, the intestine must provide the necessary enzymes so that proteins can be broken down and absorbed by the organism. If this does not happen, some of the nutrients are excreted undigested, even if the cat food is of high quality.
Therefore, the old food should be replaced bit by bit with the new food. Vet-Concept recommends a changeover within 8-10 days, depending on the sensitivity of the cat.
HOW RELIABLE ARE THE RECOMMENDED FEEDING QUANTITIES?
It is important to follow the manufacturer's recommended daily feeding amounts for a complete food. This will ensure that the cat or tomcat is getting all the vital nutrients needed to meet its requirements.
Nevertheless, depending on the individual characteristics of each cat, some leeway can be given in which the feeding amount can be adjusted.
For example, Vet-Concept wet food can be reduced by up to one third of the daily recommendation if the cat tends to gain weight or needs to lose weight. In this case, Vet-Concept offers cereals rich in vital substances, which can replace the reduced amount of meat. Alternatively, the amount fed can be increased if the pet needs more energy after a debilitating illness or operation.
CAN I JUST FEED MY CAT DIET FOOD?
We strongly advise against feeding diet food without a good reason or without consulting a professional, such as a vet or Vet Concept consultant.
Diet food can support sick pets well and sometimes even alleviate complaints. However, diet food fed at the wrong time or unsuitable diet food can also cause harm.
Highly fat-reduced cat food or food with protein or mineral values designed for certain diseases, as well as cat food for allergy sufferers, are therefore only available with a feeding recommendation from the attending veterinarian.
ARE GRAIN-FREE FOODS GENERALLY BETTER?
In the wild, cats eat ten to twelve whole small prey items a day. Their stomachs are rather small and the diet is very protein-heavy. This places special demands on the detoxification organs of the kidneys and liver.
Cats are therefore inveterate prey eaters and even though they live mainly on meat, many important nutrients are missing in a pure meat diet.
Nitrogenous waste products from the utilisation of meat can be gently excreted through the intestines, for example, by using sufficient fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS).
FOS are special plant substances that are supposed to support the development of a healthy intestinal environment and can thus ensure a healthier, more effective digestive tract.
WHICH WET FOOD IS SUITABLE FOR KITTENS?
Young cats and males develop rapidly. At the age of 5 weeks, all senses are already fully developed. In order to support kittens in their growth, high-quality and healthy cat food should be fed, which can cover the high energy requirements. Highly digestible protein from poultry, lamb or rabbit is preferable. A sufficient content of vital taurine is very important.
Exotic meats such as reindeer, rabbit or goat should be put on the back burner in order to preserve food alternatives in case of a later allergy.
HOW CAN I TELL THAT MY CAT IS NOT TOLERATING THE FOOD?
Intolerances can manifest themselves in many different ways. When introducing a new or rarely fed food, it is therefore important to observe your cat closely over the next few weeks.
It is also advisable to introduce only one new food at a time so that it can be put through its paces in the coming weeks. If, for example, several new types of food are introduced into the diet at once, it is only possible to speculate which food triggers the signs of intolerance.
The typical signs that a food is not tolerated are gastrointestinal problems (such as vomiting or diarrhoea). But also a sudden itching, skin reactions or an untypical exhaustion can be symptoms of an intolerance.
Depending on the intensity of the signs, direct discontinuation of the new food should be considered. In case the reaction is particularly intense, a vet should be consulted.
DO I STILL NEED ADDITIONAL FOOD?
If you choose a wet food that is declared as a complete food, no additional food is needed to cover the average needs of a cat.
All Vet-Concept wet foods are complete foods for cats.
However, as we consider cats individually when it comes to nutrition, we recommend additional supplements or cereals depending on specific needs, e.g. in the areas of bones & joints, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract or skin & coat.
