Use Wellness grain free chicken and plenty of fresh cool water every 12 hours morning and evening. Your cat needs to be more hydrated. you can add warm water to the moist food and mix so your cat gets extra water in the food. I personally do not believe in all these special diets. What is important is that your cat eats ,drinks, and eliminates. I have two cats myself one is 14female and the other is my "old" man 17 years old. I lost my "old" man's litter mate to Lymphoma last year and he is still looking for his mate.;( Good luck to you :)

A good quality food is always the best but if he is prone to urinary infections or crystals in the urine, he should be on a prescription diet from your vet. There are several on the market to try to see if he likes one over the other. However, if he won't eat any then that will cause other problems, so getting him on a food he likes and will eat is very important!

Short answer: Wellness canned turkey or canned chicken are good places to start. But not the CORE product line as they are very high protein.
Add additional water to the canned food if possible.

I'm not a vet but I take cat health seriously. A high quality CANNED cat food is much better than any dry food when dealing with urinary and kidney issues. The water content is very very very important. Some vets recommend to stay away from fish based food because how the fish affects urine chemistry.

BTW: I have a 15 year old cat who was prone to bladder stones and urinary infections. She is doing fantastic on a diet with more quality canned food like Wellness.

All my readings and interactions with vets say that cats should be on wet cat food. Dry cat food exists for the convenience of humans who don't want to deal with twice a day feedings. My cats have remained very healthy on any wet Wellness cat food (no urinary infections ever). One of my cats has been in renal (kidney) failure since she was 3 1/2 and I'm so happy to say that at 9 1/2, she is doing great. She is also on weekly subcutaneous IV's to keep her kidneys going. I change the water bowls daily to entice more drinking (I got rid of the cat water dispenser I had because it was constantly going slimey).

My Vet also put my cat on a special diet for kidney problems. My cat hated the food & that particular food is quite low in quality. I switched him to Wellness canned food that has cranberries in it. Our cat's urine tends to be too low in acid & I believe the cranberries help with this, just as it helps humans with urinary tract problems. I also add a little water & mix it in to make a gravy, as cats with kidney problems need more water than usual. I had to carry a magnifying glass with me while shopping for cat food, as the ingredients listed on the cans are microscopic & hard to read.

I've been where you are and my advice to you is that wet food only is going to be your best bet. I have a cat that used to have bad urinary infections along with crystals. His kidneys were beginning to be affected and I too was on the special diet but I found that that food isn't really good. It is loaded with so many bad ingredients, fillers, etc. Just not healthy. I took him off of it and gave him Weruva chicken paw lickin good in the can. It was the only thing that cleared him of his issues. Since the chicken is more of a liquid diet, I did have to mix in a food that was more patent and I chose wellness because of its thickness. Beef and chicken was what I chose and I gave that with chicken from Weruva and or Soulistic in the pouch or can every single day. No matter what I give him, I always make sure he gets chicken because its the only thing that keeps him healthy. He's doing better than ever. Tip - You will want to check the ash and magnesium levels and try to stay on a lower side. Wet food is always better. Whatever you do, stay away from dry. kitties with these kinds of issues struggle with dry. Best of luck

I couldn't say which Wellness food is best for urinary problems, but have you tried adding a little bit of powdered cranberry to his diet? You might have to put it on your finger and stick it in his mouth. Cranberry and Vitamin C help avoid urinary infections. (This would have to be done daily.)

Question

Which Wellness canned cat food is best to promote a healthy heart and kidneys?

My 16 Year Old male feline was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure and then Renal Failure 1& 1/2 months ago. At that time I had just started weaning him to the wellness brand from a prescription formula for his stomach issues.
He is doing better than expected and I want to ensure that he is eating what is best for him...any help will be appreciated.

I can sympathize with your concern. My 16 year-old female was diagnosed in August 2012 with a fairly large tumor on the kidney. She was given 3-6 months. She had been having tremors and seeming kitty-dementia. CANNED Wellness was always one of the canned foods which I bought, but I began a feeding program with her, where I would present food to her every few hours, not taking "no" for an answer. Feeding location was sometimes important: two feet away was sometimes preferable to her. I did not think she would see the last Christmas, but it is amazing how she is improving...eating better and better - though exclusively with my "presentation". I cannot give you scientific evidence, but all 10 of my kitties really like canned WELLNESS turkey and WELLNESS chicken, but not beef and chicken. I do not buy seafood ingredients because another senior has thyroid problems. Good luck with your kitty.

Add additional water to the canned food if possible. You might want to look at Halo brand also.

With Congestive Heart Failure you also want to watch the salt content.

I know it is a lot to do --- but your wonderful old male is worth it! :)

One of my cats was diagnosed with renal failure at 3 1/2 years of age. I am pleased to say that thanks to Wellness wet cat food and weekly subcutaneous IV's, she is now 9 1/2 years old and thriving. She jumps from my photocopier to the top of the high cupboards in my kitchen almost daily! My cat hated the recommended vet cat food for renal failure but loved Wellness, so it was my decision to give her something that she would eat. My vet agrees that my cat looks fantastic.

My male cat isn't as old or as sick as yours, but I will add what I've found out recently, as we've had several cats succumb to renal failure over the years. Our 6-year old long-haired male has developed crystals in his urine. The Vet said his urine didn't contain enough acid, so I found that Wellness canned food contains cranberries, which is supposed to be good for human urinary problems, and I thought, "Why not give it a try?" I also read that cats with urinary problems & renal failure need more water in their diets, so I've been mixing a little water in with the food before he eats it. So far, it appears to be helping him a lot. Years ago, we were taught to feed our cats dry food because it was good for their teeth. However, the lack of moisture raised havoc with their kidneys & most died from renal failure. It was so sad. I'm so glad we know better now & feed our cats canned food almost exclusively.

I can only say what I have had personal experience with so here it goes. My 12 year old cat has routine biannual physicals, urinalysis and blood work. Over the years I had noticed her blood work values for her kidneys slowly go up. They have never been outside of normal but the values never the less slowly creeping. I switched her to science diet g/d food and her last 3 tests (1 1/2 years later) have shown a steady decrease in those numbers. The only change in her life was the food. Besides her monthly heartworm and flea prevention she has never taken any medicines or supplements. Now I suppose it could have been a coincidence, but either way I am sticking with it because I want her to hit 16, 18, 20 years old and it seemed to work.

I called Petco and asked the same question and was told that it depends on where it was made from. Because they use natural ingredients, it just depends on natural products they receive. Nothing is wrong with the food, just a different consistency. My cats like the Wellness more when it's softer!

The consistency can sometimes vary with all the flavors. I guess it is due to being "natural". You may find that it is not always the case. The chicken tends to have a more consistent texture, but it can also be mushy at times. Try putting in the refrigerator for a few hours. I can not say enough good things about Wellness. My cat has been on it for 6 years and is beautiful and healthy.

I feed my cat the Science Diet Tender chicken Dinner with gravy. It has the right texture and my cat loves it. I just give her about a tablespoon for xtra moisture. She drinks a lot of water, but some cats don't so the moist is good. I hope this helps you.

Question

What is a daily feeding ration

Wellness seems to be a high quality (and high priced) cat food. How much of the wet food do 10-12 lbs cats need daily?
I have three cats - one female 13 yrs and two 3 yr old males.
I would like to switch to a better food, but don't know if I can afford it.
Now I split two 5.5 oz Friskies Fillets between them and add 1/2 dry food per day.

I just did the same thing. I switched from Science Diet. I can hardly afford it and understand all to well. I have two 13yr. old cats male and female Persian/Russian Blue. They are over 12Lbs. I feed them 3oz. each of canned food and 1/4c. each of dry food in the evening to help clean their teeth. They don't seem to like dry food that much.

Not sure. I can tell you that I feed 3 8-9 pound cats one 12.5 oz. can daily. Half divided 3 ways in the morning and half divided 3 ways for dinner. I microwave the refrigerated food for 35 seconds to take the chill off. If I don't one on the cats vomits it sometimes. My cats are 1 - 2 year old active, indoor-only females.
