When we first got Kiaira, she was eating both wet and dry. Upon discussing it with a vet years ago, we were told dry was better for them.
So Kiaira was switched to dry only and when we got Tori she was put on a dry diet as well.
Once I started working at my current clinic a couple of years ago, I learned wet food is healthier and a dry diet can contribute to CRF, IBD etc. So needless to say, we quickly purchased wet food. Kiaira readily accepted the wet food (but she used to eat it) and continued to love it until we lost our fight to renal failure last year...something I know years of dry food probably contributed to.
Unfortunately, Tori refused to have anything to do with it as she had only ever known dry and she was free fed for years which I also know is a no-no. So that combined with her grazing habits, has made our attempts at trying to convert her to wet food quite difficult.
When we tried to introduce wet food into Tori's diet again about a month ago, we only gave her small portions to decrease her chances of developing G.I. problems. Still no go...
She's has just started a prescription diet for her weight and she is now no longer being free fed...
Her weight is another reason why we have to be very careful in introducing food she doesn't care for... It's so frustrating sometimes!
Anyway, if you or anyone else have any other good tips (we have tried a few which haven't worked but I'm always open to more ideas), I would be more than willing to try it.
