Cats do not have a high thirst drive, so need a lot of moisture added to their diet, that is one reason canned is better than dry.
Thanks for fast reply that enlightened me,somewhat.

Any advice?

There is no right or wrong answer about whether you should feed wet or dry food(or both).Personally I opt both are nutritionally complete.many people stick on dry food as it is less expensive and easy to store whereas canned food is expensive .try to know what your cat enjoy to eat more. Cosulting a vet is important.
The more necessary things that place some water in a bowl.
Some pet food manufactures are using preservatives,antioxidants and other additives from natural sources instead of artificial ones. No salt or contains any soya where only high grade products are used.
Sorry,no idea about Brewer's Yeast flakes.
Thanks

Actually there is right and wrong. Dry food is a horrible horrible thing to feed any cat. Feed a cat a wet or raw or both diet for optimal health. NO DRY.

Feed your cat a good quality cat food , and add fish oil to the diet. You can buy it in capsule form. Pierce it and add one capsule to the food once per day.

They need a complete diet with vitamin E, and wet food. However even with supplements of E they can still have rough coats if they're not on a nutritionally complete, high quality diet. And dry foods are actually bad for them... But wet foods you really have to watch the carb and sugar content. It's why so many kitties get diabetes... It's depressing that the food companies are allowed to get away with that, fluffing food in consideration of profit rather than ensuring health.
