My Kizzy doesn't like canned much.... I did try many different kinds, brands, flavors, chunky/pate/flaked...etc. He would also have diarrhea issues with too much canned food. My main concern with not feeding wet was water intake, but Kizzy drinks ALOT of water.
I finally found one he'll eat well.... Fancy Feast, grilled chicken feast. He will also eat the grilled beef feast. I really don't care that it's not the best food.... it is better than none at all IMHO. He gets 1 3oz can every 1-2days. Plus a high quality dry food.
Anyways, my point:
- if your cat drinks alot of water, I wouldn't worry much about wet food. If Go doesn't drink alot of water, maybe investing in a water fountain would be a good thought.
But if you want a recommendation of type to try:
- food to try: try the FF grilled.... it's cheap, if he doesn't like it, you are not out much. For some reason, Kizzy loves the consistancy...(it looks like a flaked tuna in a can, with just a bit of juice) The only negative about this food, for me
, is that it contains wheat gluten which can be a potential allergen (but my cat is fine with it)http://fancyfeast.com/wet-cat-food/g...east-in-gravy/
(pic to show what it looks like)
I will even feed it out of my hand, the chunks are big enough.... so its like a treat LOL.
- BG (Before Grain) Quail. The BG canned foods are 100% meat, and water for processing. ALOT of people have said their cats LOVE the quail. It's not cheap, and not meant for feeding all the time (supplemental only) but in Go's case, I think it would work great if he'll eat it. (there's other varieties of it: chicken, salmon, tuna, quail, turkey and beef)
another added bonus, you can buy the large cans for dogs as its the same everything....100% meat. (cheaper to buy large cans if they like it)
