Pygmy Hedgehog Food 101

May 1, 2020 Off By Crystal Watkins

There are so many advertisements for pet foods that pet owners often get confused. Pet owners can eliminate this confusion by studying the ingredients used to make the cat food. Some pet owners avoid buying readymade cat food from the market because they are not sure of the quality of ingredients used. However, many pet owners believe that Royal Canin cat food is the best food for their kitten as the quality of ingredients used by them is excellent.

A blockage can be dangerous to cat urinary health because the bladder can rupture. Your cat will probably start acting lethargic after a while due to the altered level of electrolytes.

Begin by taking a look around your house. Check for hanging or dangling cords that could be entertainment for your cat and secure them so harm doesn’t come to your pet or the item itself. Cats jump and climb on furniture as well, so be sure breakable items are safe and secure. It is also a good idea to keep insect control and plants out of reach, as some plants are poisonous to cats. Take a look around your house for any other potential dangers and remove them. Don’t let curiosity kill your cat.

Back from my digression! Action, I banned commercial food, both wet and dry, and returned to my mother’s way of caring for and feeding the cats. I now source and prepare my own cat food. To date our two new cats are both over 20 years old, happy, active and still hunting. My vet’s bills are almost zero and I save money by NOT going to the pet store.

Pet health in cats is heavily dependent on high intakes of protein and low supplements of carbohydrates. Unfortunately, most dry cat Soft Cat Food is made up of mostly carbohydrates. Due to this fact, some cats that eat mostly dry cat food have a greater chance of becoming overweight. This is due to the cat’s high upload of carbohydrates. Dry cat food makes the pet want to meat more than he or she should because it does not give them the full feeling as that of protein.

I strongly suggest changing your cat’s diet over a minimum of a week to get it used to the new food. You will need to mix a little of the new food in with what your cat normally eats and slowly increase this. Once your cat is happily eating a mix of majority new food, you can stop adding in the old food. Of course you can feed your cat a homemade diet but speak to your vet about the best way to do this.

Do not offer your cat raw fish because many fish contain thaiminase, which will break down the thiamin in a cat’s body and cause a deficiency in some cats. Also raw tuna may contain mercury.
