ASK-THE-VET: CATS ON SCHEDULED MEALS

Question: I have tried to switch every one of my cats over to Halo foods. Some will eat the Halo some of the time. Others are extremely difficult. We do not allow or feed any more dry food in our house so maybe getting everyone used to scheduled meals will be the path to success this time! I have found if cats eat dry kibble left out for them all day they will fill up on that and avoid the species appropriate foods they need for good health.

Answer: Thanks for your comments. Sounds like you are on the right path in your house with scheduled meal times for the canned food. You might also try Halo’s new Spot’s Pate canned food options. Some cats do not care for the more soupy texture of the original recipes and the pate is a great option for them. Also a little fresh cooked meat on top of the food might entice even the most finicky of feline!

Hope this helps.
