Contrary to popular belief, your cat doesn't need to eat the same food throughout her life to be healthy. In fact, there are instances when a switch to a different pet food can actually be beneficial.
Your cat's nutritional needs evolve as she ages. Kittens demand more calories & protein to support growth while senior cats experience a slower metabolism, and may require less protein to maintain a healthy liver & kidneys.
Food tailored to your cat's appropriate life stage can also support their activity needs. Senior foods may include ingredients like glucosamine & chondroitin to keep their joints moving while a kitten formula may provide extra fat & carbohydrates to support increased energy levels.
Food sensitivities like gastrointestinal upset, itchy skin or respiratory issues can develop over time, even if you've been feeding your cat the same food for years without incident.
Your vet can diagnose the issue & determine if a diet change that eliminates potential food sensitivities could minimize the health reactions in your pet.
Your cat's unique indoor lifestyle may benefit from a diet switch.
Urinary health formulas may use ingredients that help maintain urinary tract health by reducing urinary pH and providing low dietary magnesium, which can minimize crystal formation in the bladder and urethra.
Indoor cats tend to get hairballs from consistent daily grooming. Food formulated to address hairballs can offer nutrients for a healthy coat that minimizes shedding. Fiber in these formulas can also ease digestion & reduce hairballs.
Spaying and neutering operations are a big change for your cat and it may require a food switch as well. Hormone changes can impact their energy levels and appetites, so the balanced nutrition of spay/neuter food formulas can help maintain a healthy weight while helping cats to feel full.
