i havn't acutally read the entire thread..just skimmed a few posts.
However..for my cats ..my vet has said that the wet food is better because it is less processed. (obviously still procssed) but...the body has to work less to break it down..and as a result the wet food has been mor damaging to the kidneys.
i found this out..when our maxie got sick with kidney failure..and i tried absolutly everything to get food into him..i caved and bought the wet food..which had just been a very rare treat. maxie never made it..we lost him to the kidney failure. but meeko..wet food has become an INSISTANT..infact he has pretty much stopped eating dry al together (could be due to his teeth..at 16 theyre not in great shape)
anyways.. wet food is now a staple in our house.
however..when maggie comes home.. the breeder has them on Acana puppy food..and doing my research have been told that this is pretty high quality stuff. i will probably keep her on it for a while..and then do the math and see if its cheaper to put her on stuff we get at the vet..as the pet insurance im going to go with will pay for half the vet food.
Oliver and Max, i will meet you at the Rainbow bridge. I love you both.
wait for me...
