Hi there,
I'm new to this site, and I've been reading, with great interest, what is being said about overweight cats losing weight on a diet of just wet food.
I'm definately interested in trying this - 4 out of my six cats are 'chubby' and no matter what I have tried, they haven't lost weight.
Right now, I feed them a quarter cup each of dry food in the morning, and a little less than a quarter cup at night, with some wet mixed in.
How do you think I should go about switching over to just wet food? Also, if someone could recommend some good brands? I'm in Canada by the way, so unfortunately, we don't have all the choices that those of you in the US have. Is IAMS okay? It is the most acessible "better" food....
Thanks in advance!!

Hey, I'm from Canada too, so I can attest that while some of the brands are harder to find, they are there. I definately wouldn't recommend Iams both due to its ingredients and allegations about cruelty to animals. The best thing to do is use the store locator that can be found on many food websites. That is how I found the store I shop at. There is only one store in Edmonton that sells good food, but they carry EVERYTHING - Wellness, Eaglepack, Solid gold, Natural Balance, Innova and Felidae. Here are some store locator websites, I hope you can find something near you.

I can't think of any more right now :oops: .
