Good Cat Food At Wal-Mart

Hi,

Is it possible to buy a good/healthy cat food at wal-mart? What brand would you reccomend. I've been purchasing food from my vet but I think its a waste of money. The vet must be making huge profit off the sales. So what brand/kind should I get?

Thanks

If you can't afford anything better than buy Purina One or Iams. They are the best you'll find at Walmart. However, if you can afford something better then go to Petsmart or your local feed store and buy something a little better. I find Nutro reasonably priced and it's a good food. Some will say it's not, but compared to Iams, it's much better.

If you've been buying food from your vet, almost anything you buy anywhere else will cost you less. Do you have a pet store near where you live? They should carry some good cat foods at better prices than what a vet will charge.

Just look through the threads in this section. There's always a lot of discussion about cat foods. Read them and decide for yourself.

Chicken Soup for the Cat Lovers Soul is cost effective!
If you feed dry food...the canned stuff most cats wont eat.

I feed my cat regular Friskies cans. I smell the stuff. It's meat. I don't see how that can be unhealthy for my cat, considering she's 17 years old and shows no sign of keeling over.

It smells like meat so that cats will eat it Its really by-products and fillers.

But you are in fact a very lucky owner to have a cat that has survived this long with no ill-effects. This is where genetics plays a large part. Kind of like the people who live to be 110 on a steady intake of booze and cigarettes. Doesn't make it good for you, and one certainly wouldn't recommend it as a proper diet

OK, now I don't know anyone who lives to 110 on a diet of booze and cigs. Isn't that pushing it? HA! HA! I understand what you're saying though. I've lost a mother and 3 sibliings, all under the age of 60, to lung cancer because they all smoked and drank at one time in their life and a couple were still doing it at the time they became ill. Two brothers had given up the booze and alchohol 10 years prior and still developed the lung cancer. That's a perfect example of how genetics play a huge part in our health. I quit smoking 13 years ago and from time to time wonder if I will end up developing the lung cancer anyway. Time will tell.
