Default A question about feeding canned food...

Hi again,

I've spoken to my vet about Cilla ("Horrible Pet Owner" post) and she has
recommended a completely canned diet for Cilla. I don't really think it
will be that difficult to convert her...she loves her wet food and only
picks at the dry. The wet food we give her comes in pouches that are 100g
each. As of today we are feeding her twice a day to coincide with her
antibiotics. Is this enough?? The box says it should be 4 pouches which
seems like quite a lot to me!! Any ideas?

Thanks
Summer

A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless
interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an
otherwise dull day.



HA!

How do you get them to eat enough wet when they prefer the dry and will only
eat the wet when no dry is available?


Don't give 'em dry until they've scoffed the wet? The dry can be a
sort of crunchy dessert, a bit like chocolate coated peanuts, sans
chocolate and peanuts.

I had to switch my two to canned when one was diagnosed diabetic
in January. They would still hang around where the dry cannister
was in the kitchen, begging. I started giving them each a heaping
tablespoon of Purina diabetic dry as a snack in the evening, but
the rest of the time, they don't get any dry.
