Water, water, water is there any water here?

If I could have  one word taken away from this blog, it would be “water“.  If your cat is on a properly hydrated diet of 100% canned food – and no dry food – you stand a very good chance preventing a urinary tract issue.

Always keep in mind that water flowing through the urinary tract system is the most important factor in keeping it healthy.

Water – – water , water is there any water in my food?

Dry food is has 10% moisture so they are getting virtually no added MOISTURE in their daily diets. So you say that your pet is drinking water from their water bowls but do you know how much they are drinking..Are they drinking to compensate for the lack of moisture in their foods or have they only allowed for their daily replenishment of water needed for that walk that they just came home from?

In reference to a cat their normal prey is ~70% water.  Canned food is ~78% water. Dry food is ~5-10% water.  Cats have a low thirst drive and do not make up the deficit at the water bowl.  They are designed to get water with their food.

Cats on canned food have been shown to consume at least double the amount of water (from food and water bowl) when compared to a dry food-fed cat.

This results in approximately DOUBLE the amount of urine flowing through the bladder.

Think of canned food as not only a proper diet for an obligate carnivore, BUT is the healthiest way to keep your cat’s bladder flushed out and ‘happy’.

I recommend Weruva and BFF cat food to keep your cat free of any type of urinary issues.
