12 best food for neutered cats

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

The community of cat owners is divided into two camps: some support only natural food, others – ready-made food. So what to feed the animal?

Natural food, that is, homemade products. Veterinarians unanimously point out that it is very difficult to balance the diet on your own, especially taking into account the load on the genitourinary system of a sterilized animal.

Ready-made feeds are carefully verified in terms of mineral and nutritional composition, they have no contraindications. It is important to stick to the recommended amount so that the animal does not overeat.

The finished feed can be dry or wet. Dry is suitable for an adult cat or a cat capable of chewing and swallowing a 'crouton'. Wet is recommended for young kittens or older animals when the strength in the jaw is no longer the same. Also, there is a better assimilation of wet feed due to the lower need of the animal for water, but in general it is recommended to mix these types of ready-made food.

Undoubtedly, the best and wholesome feeds belong to the premium class, where the content of natural components is maximum. The magazine's experts have compiled a rating of the best ready-made food for neutered cats based on the opinions of veterinarians, as well as feedback from pet owners.

The best dry food for neutered cats

It is convenient to measure dry food in portions and store. It is important to remember: there must be a cup of water next to the food bowl, because to digest the croutons need to be soaked, from which, by the way, they significantly increase in volume in the stomach – for this reason, it seems to us that the manufacturer offers a very small portion per day.
