Do you ever wonder what dry foods do to your cat's gut? Read Dr Guillermo Díaz's great new article!

I'm switching my cat to a raw diet, but I'm still feeding her dry food. She throws up pretty often. The barf looks almost the same as when it went in!

I am confused about B vitamins. Which ones do I need to add to homemade raw cat food? What should I be looking for when I buy vitamin B-complex?

Feeding dry food to a cat with urinary problems makes no sense! Dr Guillermo Díaz explains why diet is so important for our feline companions and why a natural diet keeps kitty's urinary tract happy.

My cat eats a veterinarian-recommended diet. He began having urinary issues, and my vet recommended a prescription diet for the rest of his life.

We think of cats as predators, but being small, they are also prey. Your companion cat has all the instincts of her wild cousins, including the worry over becoming someone's dinner. Does this affect your cat's behavior?

Everyone who shares their life with cats wonders how they see the world. They see it differently than we do. What do cats think is important in life?

Proof that your cats really are paying attention to you! Check out this article by researchers Jennifer Vonk and Moriah Galvin. They investigated whether cats respond to their owner's visual and verbal emotional cues.
http://feline-nutrition.org/features/cats-are-paying-attention-to-your-feelings  #cat #cats #feline
We wanted to investigate the ability of cats to understand and respond to human emotional cues, and why, or if, such behavior occurs.

Feeding dry foods has an impact on your cat's urinary system, in more ways than one. Read Dr Guillermo Díaz's great new Answer article that explains what's going on with kibble and pee!

I fed my cat premium dry food all of his life. All of a sudden, he developed urinary blockage. These kinds of problems don't occur all of a sudden.

Like everyone, I am concerned about my cats' safety. But, once I started feeding a raw meat diet, I found that I suddenly had a lot less to worry about.

What do you worry about when it comes to your cat? If you feed your cat food you buy in the store, you are suddenly in the dark. Not a great feeling.

If you have an older cat, this article by Dr Mark Peterson is a must read. Following up on his previous article on senior cats and their increased protein needs, he now explains the mechanics behind cat metabolism.
http://feline-nutrition.org/nutrition/the-skinny-on-senior-cats-metabolism-explained  #cat #cats #feline
I will review energy and protein metabolism in cats. Increasing fat or carbohydrate to a hyperthyroid cat cannot compensate for a lack of protein.

Does your cat shed too much? Feeding dry kibble foods can contribute to excessive shedding and poor coat and skin condition. Find out why in Dr Guillermo Díaz's new Answers article.
http://feline-nutrition.org/answers/answers-what-dry-food-does-to-your-cat-s-fur  #cat #cats #feline
My cat sheds excessively all of the time. The vet says he is completely normal. He is eating only a premium brand of dry food the vet recommended.

What is High Pressure Processing? Many raw pet foods are using this process, but most people don't realize it's used in many human foods you eat every day. Find out what HPP is!
http://feline-nutrition.org/nutrition/high-pressure-processing-the-future-of-raw-cat-food  #cat #cats #feline
The FDA views raw cat food as unsafe due to the potential for contamination. Manufacturers have begun High Pressure Processing to sterilize foods.
