Info. & Links on why canned is better than all dry diet

Since this is such a hot topic and is debated often on the this forum, I thought I would provide some links on why canned food is better than dry. Even some of the doctors now are coming forward and saying..."Hey, we've been wrong".

I suspect that in the next 10 years we will see many changes in the veterinary world in terms of what vets are recommending in terms of nutrition/diet for cats.

I think that turning Julie's thread into a sticky might make it easier for newcomers to see and read up on before plunging into further analysis
Thank you, Julie for your time and dedication. You are are, undoubtly, one of the forum's experts on cat nutrition

explore, doubt and discover for yourself what is the truth.

Well, I also thought that this post was so informative that it deserves to be a sticky, so voilá! It's a sticky. The research about how to fins a good catfood all of a sudden became a lot easier

Thanks AddFran lots of good reading to do.

I'm trying to convert over my Bengal kittens right now from a combo canned/dry to completely canned and hopefully a raw diet eventually but having some difficulty doing it. Older kitten of 5 months I'm having more luck with. I feed Wellness for kittens and she seems to like it but is not going crazy over it. She'll eat about 1/2 of a 3.2oz can 3 times a day. I dont feel like she's getting enough to eat. The younger one of 3 months likes the dry much better. Ive even fasted him for 12 hours and he'll sniff take a few bites and walk away still starving. Ive tried every brand imaginable to peek his palate but no luck. He has in the last few days started to show a little more interest. Ive stopped free feeding dry and offer him canned he eats about a tablespoon or so tehn after a 1/2 hr I'll put down dry and he'll gorge on that until full.

The thread stays at the top of the page (with other stickes/announcments) so it is easily accesible, even if it it not updated.
