I like to mix dry food with wet food for my teenager kittens (Wellness brand). I will often leave some kibbles out if I'm going somewhere so they do not get hungry. My kittens drink LOTS of water, from their bowl and the sink faucet, multiple times a day. I also check them for dehydration by lightly pinching their skin and seeing how quickly it settles into place. They never have had a problem with the skin slowly settling which is a sign of dehydration. Are my kittens still at risk for kidney stones from the dry food?

They have a mixed diet and are drinking; no worries mate. :)

Just don't leave moistened dry food out much longer than you would wet food. Once the dry is wet, it won't stay preserved as long.

The bad wrap for dry is primarily when people feed exclusively dry, and cheap stuff at that which has a lot of carbs and fillers.

There's always a possibility of urinary and kidney issues with any diet, the question is whether the risk is high or low. Sounds like you're in a fairly low risk situation.
