Being true carnivores, cats have stricter requirements when it comes to the amount of protein incorporated in their diet. Here are some ways to make sure your pet’s nutritional needs are met:
- Give a premium quality pet food product that is lifestage-appropriate to ensure that the animal’s protein needs are met adequately.
- Cats can easily suffer from chronic low-grade dehydration because they need to be encouraged to drink water. Placing several water bowls in strategic places around the house will ensure your pet’s easy access to these ‘water holes’.
- Food and water bowls should be separated by a considerable distance from the litter box. Cats tend to avoid food and water bowls that are in close proximity to where they do their business.
Consult with your vet if you think your cat is underweight or overweight, so you can adjust your pet’s ration accordingly. Check out this link for more pet care information.
