My Personal Experiences - Cat
The Importance of Feeding Healthy Pet Food
My husband and I used to buy the kind of cat food�you can find�in�many�TV commercials. One day I saw a cute cat food commercial with�a�catchy tune, and I decided�we should switch to that cat food. I liked the colorful package, too. For a while, our cat�did�fine, and seemed to enjoy the food.

But it didn�t last. He started to have trouble urinating. He�would�stay in his litter box for a long time, trying to urinate, with no�real success.��Alarmed, we took him to our�neighborhood�vet, who had to keep our cat for several days�because of a�problem with his urinary tract. The bill was high,�and the veterinarian told us that the cat would�need to be on a special prescribed diet for the rest of his life (our cat was only 3 years old back then). We started to feed him the prescribed cat food the vet sold us. Jiji, our big black cat

But soon, another problem�occurred. The cat started to have severe diarrhea�after�every�meal. The air was always filled with his offensive fecal smell, which was almost unbearable. I just couldn�t understand�why this cat must eat�a�special�-- supposedly helpful --�diet�that�was�causing�him another problem.

I desperately started to look for an answer to my questions, and gradually I�learned that there were good quality and poor quality cat foods on the market. Balanced nutrition was very basic in maintaining cats� health in the first place, and�you had to be knowledgeable about ingredients and read the cat food labels carefully before you decide to buy them.

After a few trials of different brands of cat food, I decided to try Life�s Abundance cat food.���The cat accepted the food willingly in spite of his finicky eating habits. I kept�carefully�monitoring our cat�s�health, and�the cat seemed to be doing okay on the food.��We found a new (holistic) veterinarian,�who�checked our cat�s body and told us he was doing just fine. It was a relief.

Years later, our cat is still on the same diet, Life�s Abundance cat food. Every time we take him�for�regular check-ups, our holistic vet assures us the cat continues to be in healthy condition.

I should have learned the importance of proper care of our cat a long time ago, especially the proper diet with balanced nutrition. My husband, who didn�t give much thought to how diet can have a positive or negative impact on health, now believes that good diet is important to maintain our cat�s health.

The high cost vet bills taught us a lesson.
