I'm currently feeding Li'l Smokie Science Diet Kitten food, both wet and dry. With her just getting spayed, I don't want to change up her diet until she's completely healed. The last thing I need is a 5-6 month old kitten with stomach issues on top of being spayed a day and a half ago. She's already very petite, so I'm guessing that being on Science Diet for the next two weeks (her stitches come out then) would be okay and then switch her to a better kitten food.IMO, there's no reason to ever feed Science Diet. There are also other choices besides Chicken Soup...by Nature would be one. Felidae, Healthwise that are all less expensive and significantly higher quality. And I know there's more than I just listed.
It's still good to know. I've won the battle in theory on getting my ex-husband to feed our other cats a better quality wet and dry food, but it's getting it into practice that's the hard part. I'm hoping that with the addition of Li'l Smokie, he'll be more inclined to pay more attention to what I'm telling him about the research that the members of CF have done in regards to higher quality cat food.I was just making the point that for about the same price you can buy corn, by-product and corn gluten laden Science Diet...you can get some really decent stuff.
