Cat Food Trends 

Diet and health go hand in hand. Improvements in diet and nutrition are always welcome when it comes to keeping your cat healthy. Before you adopt a new diet trend for your cat, make sure it provides the essential nutrients your cat requires. 

The Good: Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids

Omega-6 fatty acids are found in plant sources, whereas Omega-3 fatty acids are typically found in marine sources. These fatty acids are important components of your cat’s diet and carry out a variety of biological functions, including promoting healthy skin, coat and immune system.

The Bad: Raw Diets

Raw diets may not provide cats with the complete nutrition they need. These diets may also expose cats to the threat of foodborne pathogens.

Understanding the broad dietary needs of your cat will help you make an informed decision about what cat food you select. Hopefully this brief guide to diet trends will help inspire you to seek out more research.
