Hi,

We have a cat that we are fostering and he looks underweight since he was a stray. Is canned or dry better for gaining weight? He still gets canned food, but I would like to know which is better.

Thanks

Well that's a hard question. Dry food will put weight on, but it will not be healthy weight, it will just be fat.

Numerous studies show that lean animals are healthier and live longer than even normal-weight animals, so trying to put weight on may not be the best plan. I'd feed him as much canned as he will eat, and let him find his own "set point."

Cheers,
Dr. Jean
