Grain frees thus far in DRY are NOT UTI friendly at all actually the OPPOSITE
Any reason you think the company doesn't recommend it for daily use? Seems like if they're prone to UT issues, it'd be a good supplement..?

So a grain free, WET food would be good for him?

Yes I see a few herbs that arent a routine daily type... That is why I would run it by a vet cause if they dont know they likely will be able to find out


there are many UTI friendlier grain free wets ....

okay sorry for maybe asking questions that have been asked, but my cat also suffers from UTI's. She's on dry food only right now, should I switch her over to wet? Her food is Natural Choice (indoor or overweight formula I think). What are some recs for a good wet food for urinary health? I saw the dry food recs, but somehow I can't find the wet food recs.

TIA!

magnesium .025 is the max .... .022 is what I look for ....

calcium and phos should be .025 and under ( most of the time you have to call the company to get these

Do you have recs for a specific brand?

Also, everytime I've feed her wet it seems like her poo smells worse. Anyway to combat this? Maybe she just ate too much; she gets excited if I feed her wet.

Oh and one more Q, I'm gone all day at work and she's use to free feeding. Should I feed her wet morning and night and then leave out dry for the rest of the day? She's a bit fat, but my roomie feeds her kittens dry and I don't want my cat to get into their food because she's hungry.

I fed her a few nutro pouches (my ex fed them to his cat and called mine deprived ) and it was stttinky! She's on natural choice nutro right now for indoor/fattie cats. What about Wellness canned food? Is that good? I saw the thread on it up above.

I checked around today, and found a few brands that I think are UT friendly (wet). Wellness, Natural Balance, Nutro, and these two I questioned, Felidae & Merrick. I think all of these had Mg levels of .025%.

Wellness offers a grainfree wet, that's what we use. I'd still suggest a cat fountain, though. Helped my elderly gentleman.

So did simply switching him off BAD dry food to GOOD GRAINFREE dry food.

So far Grainfree drys would and are not good for UTI health...

The fountain is a great idea

I have a fountain already .

I'm going out today and getting some Wellness, Nutro & Natural Balance wet foods to try. Not that I'm worried about either of my boys eating them, neither of them are picky!

Okay sorry for the bump, but I was looking up foods. Here is Purina Pro Plan: http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...3.2768975&sr=1

Now isn't the calcium too high at .7% or am I reading that wrong?
