choosing the right food

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I need help choosing the right food for my 2-year-old cat. Help because he had a urinary infection some time ago. The situation is that he’s thin and he doesn’t eat much. The only good food that I was able to find that he likes is California Natural. He has never been crazy about it, maybe the reason he doesn’t eat a lot. The vet said that there is noting wrong with him. I found a store that carries Wysong, Precise, Innova Evo, Solid Gold, Eagle Pack, and Prairie Duck. The one that got my attention was Wysong (Uretic). Which one is better?

He is eating dry food??? Personnally if you can give a all wet diet to UTI prone kittys and AVOID fish

Eagle pack makes some great wet foods ...
Evo is a bit out of the "range" on certain items for a UTI kitty
Praries great but $$$$$$
Wysong the Au jus are great just not as the only food since they arent complete
Precise I am not familiar with

Thank you.

Unfortunately, my cat doesn’t like wet food. How about the Eagle Pack dry?I’ll check Praries Duck tomorrow, I don’t remember the price.

I would skip the Precise. My boyfriend and I both fed that to our cats when we adopted them because we believed at the time that it was a good food, but the other foods on your list are better. His cat ended up with crystals and a blockage and had to switch to Science Diet C/D. The ingredients in Precise are very grainy:

Chicken Meal, Ground Yellow Corn, Ground Brown Rice, Corn Gluten Meal, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols and Ascorbyl Palmitate), Ground Whole Wheat, Natural Chicken Flavor, Dried Cheese, Dried Whey, Lecithin, Brewers Dried Yeast, Calcium Carbonate, Salt, Phosphoric Acid, Taurine, Choline Chloride, Calcium Ascorbate (source of Vitamin C), Yucca Schidigera Extract, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Amino Acid Chleate, Iron Amino Acid Chelate, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate, Cobalt Amino Acid Chelate, Copper Amino Acid Chelate, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite, DL-Methionine, Vitamin A Acetate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate (B1), Niacin, Calcium Pantothenate, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (source of Vtiamin K activity), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (B6), Biotin, L-Lysine, L-Tryptophan, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Folic Acid.

The lady form the store gave me some samples of Eagle Pack Holistic Select duck meal and oatmeal formula, Eagle Pack Holistic Select Chicken Meal and Rice formula, Innova reduced fat adult, Wysong Vitality, and Precise. I’ll not give him the Precise, I feel bad because he took the bag from me. He’s an extremely picky eater, and I hope he likes the Eagle Pack.

One question, which is better Eagle Pack Holistic Select or California Natural?

Try the innova evo. He's a young cat at 2 years, but watch him closely if he has a reaction try a not so rich food. you can buy this brand and others at www.naturapet.com
