I am worried about urinary tract problems. My vet has informed me that this can be prevented by the use of an appropriate diet. Is PurrForm raw diet suitable?
Cats are designed to fulfil most of their water requirements from their diet. By eating fresh raw food, they are benefitting from a diet with a high moisture content.
Cats naturally have a low thirst drive, so do not drink much water on its own. This can lead to health issues, especially when they eat dry food products and treats. One of the problems is that even though they become dehydrated eating the kibble, their natural “programming” may not encourage them to drink more, and their urine can become too concentrated.
PurrForm replicates a cats natural diet as it contains a high meat content and therefore provides them with a higher water content in their diet. This means there will be less chance of any urinary tract infections.
Please remember that regardless of their diet, cats must always be provided with a readily available supply of fresh water.
