I have a cat that gains weight really fast and gets fat, she turned into a hippo when she was on EVO dispite all the exercise she got
I do give canned food few times a week (EVO & innova) but I still like to have a stable dry food, canned is more of a treat they all get while dry food is left out 24/7
My senior cat has an amazing body but his coat is kinda looking nasty but then again hes 15 years old so thats suppose to be expected! BUt he gets white flakey dandruff sometimes and his hair just gets knotty, I do brush him
Any personal advice for dry food for my situation?
There are many threads on the usefulness of TD food for teeth. Basically, if his teeth are already bad nothing can really help them, TD has limited teeth cleaning abilities IF your cat chews on every tooth (most cats do not chew dry food) but can not make their teeth better, nor attempt to clean them if the cat does not chew using all teeth.
It sounds like you would be best trying to find something that is all life stages, the brand is personal preference. To be honest, as much as we can all recommend foods, they work for our cats but may not work for yours (like EVO, some cats gain, others lose and you have to monitor amounts of it carefully)
