|I agree with the above answer. Dry food is never the best choice. Cats are different; they get the majority of their hydration from the wet food they consume. I realize if you are living on a budget like me, it's not always feasible to feed them wet canned food for every meal so here is what I do (I try my best):
My two cats get one can a day of their favorite wet food. In this case, it is Avoderm. It has no by-products and the first 5 or 6 ingredients listed is regular meat like "chicken" or "turkey". When you see by-products or if the ingredients list looks like a science experiment, it's not the best choice.
Anyway, they get one can of that a day (I usually break it up into one half twice a day) and for the rest of the day, they get dry food to snack on. Again, a top grade can be pricey but avoid kibble that lists by-products OR corn. Corn is hard for PEOPLE to digest, let alone cats who do not require high amounts of fruits and veggies. Reading the labels is really the best way to go and it'll help you narrow down your search. I hope this helped, but obviously if you can afford it, a good quality canned food OR the raw diet is the best way to go and will keep your cat healthy for the long run.
Hope this helped!
