Canned Cat Food Nutritional Information (Archived)

Feeding Cats for Health

Although the impact that a proper diet can have on a cat is probably most conspicuous and immediate for a cat suffering from digestive problems, I've learned along the way that all kinds of very serious feline disorders can be reversed or dramatically improved if we feed these magnificent creatures properly. What is involved, quite simply, is sticking as close to Mother Nature as you can manage.   Good common sense.

Feeding Your Cat: Know the Basics of Feline Nutrition «

This web page (written by a veterinarian), lays out some often-ignored principles of feline nutrition and explains why cats have a better chance at optimal health if they are fed a quality canned food diet instead of dry kibble.  Putting a little thought into what you feed your cat(s) can pay big dividends over their lifetime and very possibly help them avoid serious, painful and costly illnesses.  An increasing number of American Veterinary Medical Association members, including board-certified veterinary nutritionists, are now strongly recommending the feeding of canned food instead of dry kibble.

FelineIBD · Feline Inflammatory Bowel Disease/IBD «

The Feline IBD list (on Yahoo! Groups) is a place for people with cats who have Inflammatory Bowel Disease to discuss both holistic and allopathic treatment, diet, surgical choices etc. We're especially interested in the foods cats eat, possible links between IBD and vaccinations and holistic treatment since allopathic treatment seems somewhat limited.
