Wet vs dry cat food? Encore explains the differences!

When it comes to cat food, there are many different varieties and options available. This can cause cat owners some confusion when choosing what food is best to feed their feline friend. It’s important to remember that wet cat food and dry cat food are both excellent choices and have many positive benefits for a cat’s health.

Wet Cat Food

One of the main health benefits that wet cat food offers is extra moisture, this can provide an added source of hydration for your cat. The added moisture is helpful for cats that don’t drink enough – especially during the summer months – to prevent them from becoming dehydrated. The amount of water that a cat drinks is very important, as they can become susceptible to urinary infections or kidney problems if they are dehydrated.

At Encore we believe that your cat deserves better, healthier food, that’s why wet food our recipes contain up to 75% high-quality, real meat that is moist and succulent – ideal for ensuring your cat’s hydration levels are maintained.  Encore wet cat food is available in a range of different tastes and textures- whether your cat is partial to shrimp, tuna, chicken or even mackerel, Encore has it covered.

Dry Cat Food

Many cat owners tend to favour dry food as it is more convenient to leave out if you’re at work all day and allows your cat to graze with independence. With dry food, you can often expect your cat to keep regularly going back to their food, rather than eating it in one go as they tend to with wet food. This can give you a better idea of how much your cat is eating throughout the day, which is especially helpful if your cat has a tendency to overeat.

Another convenient benefit of dry food is that it won’t become contaminated quickly, so there is no need to worry about leaving a bowl out for your cat when you aren’t at home. It can be reassuring for some owners to know that their cat is able to nibble on their dry food as and when they please.

Dry food can have added health benefits for cats who suffer from dietary problems or sensitive stomachs, as it can be easier for cats to digest. Crunchy dry cat food can also be a great way of maintaining your cat’s dental health as crunching on the biscuits can help reduce plaque and tartar build up on their teeth.
