Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • I just adopted a younger cat and there are so many options I'm not sure what I should be feeding him. Can you help? What should I feed my cat?

    A high quality feline diet is essential for proper growth and development of your young cat and for maintenance of a happy, healthy adult. Table food, human foods, scraps and dog food are not adequate to maintain the long term health of your feline companion.

    Given the huge number of foods available, choosing the proper diet in the right amounts for your kitten or cat can be a very confusing experience. Your pet's age, overall health, exercise level, environment, and breed can all be factors to consider in choosing the right diet. Consult your veterinarian for valuable advice on the best diet for your feline friend, or use our Nutrition Hub to find some feeding recommendations specific to your unique pet.
