How does Friskies Special Diet Canned Cat Food formulated
All of our guests are fed in stainless steel food and water dishes that are sanitized daily. Each Studio has a special storage container to keep your kitty’s food in to insure special diets are followed. For senior or recuperating cats, this is especially beneficial. We stock a variety of dry & canned cat foods (Iams, Science Diet, Purina 1, Friskies,Hill’s Ideal balance (Grain Free),Cat Chow, Fancy Feasts, brands or selections may vary) and cat litter (Tidy Cat ) which are all included for free.
Food isn't poison, but can be overdosed. Feed them less. Make sure they get some exercise. Yep. Right now, everyone is on the 4Health Tractor Supply discount version of fancy dry foods, but all of mine have done well on 9 Lives, Pedigree, etc. As far as wet food, the cats get Friskies Special Diet (for the one with UTI issues) and 9 Lives. The dogs get a diet called "Whatever's on sale." (Usually Pedigree, Alpo, Beneful, Paws, Retriever.) As far as weight goes, activity level and amount matters more than what brand they're getting. Fat Cat and formerly-obese Pembroke gain weight if they eat a lot and don't get exercise, meanwhile secondhand farm dog won't gain weight even with tablespoons of corn oil in his dinner (he's just a slim dog.) So I limit how much they have and make sure they move.
Anyway, to quickly answer the actual title question: After an elderly male cat had bladder problems 22 years ago when I was much poorer and couldn't afford C/D, I simply started buying grocery store available Friskies Special Diet canned food, NEVER ever in a fish variety. Never feed tuna, never feed fish variety cat food. After doing this, there's been no bladder troubles in any of my cats for 22 years. You found the key...WET food. No fish.I just buy Friskies Special Diet canned catfood (any flavor except fish) at the regular grocery store, and have had no more problems after an elderly male cat of mine had the crystal formation problem many years ago.Which leads to the focus of this feature: Why aren't standards more clearly set for cat foods? At that time we fed them both Friskies Special Diet, both canned and dry, for several years. However, in comparing labels, the ash content in Friskies Senior cat food is actually lower in some varieties. Friskies Senior cat food neglects to list the content on the label, however, upon looking inside the label as instructed, we are advised that it contains "increased levels of B-complex vitamins and trace minerals." Since magnesium is a trace mineral, this information does give cause to wonder.
