Did you know cats have a low thirst drive and giving them SOME CANNED WET FOOD is necessary in their DAILY diet to maintain a long & healthy life? You will avoid many health issues (less vet bills) this way!
Had no idea
The leading cause of death with cats 5 years and older is Dehydration related illnesses (urinary tract issues, blockages, kidney problems, diabetes). This is also one of the main reasons cats start peeing outside of the litter box (urinary tract infections are common with cats on a dry food only diet and once they pee in the cat box and get pain- they start peeing other places). Cats are true carnivores and have a low-thirst drive (unlike humans and dogs), which is why it is essential for all cats to have SOME canned wet cat food in their DAILY diets as wet food is CLOSER to their natural diet than dry food. PROS of wet food: Higher in moisture at 75%, higher in ANIMAL based protein, Less carbs (cats don’t need carbs). CONS of dry food: Low in moisture (10%)- 3 times more carbs than wet food (cats have no need for carbs), More Plant based protein (cats need animal based protein). ******RECOMENDED ****** Think of wet food as your cat’s main source of diet if you can. We recommend one 5.5 oz. can a day per cat. Or two cans a day of the 3 oz. cans. At the very minimum a half of a 5.5 oz. can given daily is a great start (add 1-2 tablespoons of water to it too). This will help your cat get the needed moisture and protein they need. Leaving out dry food and fresh water is fine (get a cat water fountain too), but please don’t forget their daily wet food. I’ve seen too many of our adopted cats die or develop expensive health problems in their new homes as they were on a dry food only diet. One as young as 2 years old. Ask your vet how important wet food is – they will definitely tell you! Or read this for more info on the subject: Catinfo.Org
Did you know that keeping your pet's mouth healthy can give your pet a LONGER life span? 70% of cats and 80% of dogs have some form of dental disease by the time they are 3 years old. There are easy NO-brushing ways to help your pet fight dental disease and help him live a longer and happier life!
Had no idea
Good oral hygiene can help prevent diseases or secondary infections, such as liver, heart, kidney, and joint disease from bacteria originating in the mouth and spreading through the body by the bloodstream. There are brushing and NO-brushing techniques to help your furry family members. Enzymatic pet toothpaste (beef or poultry) & toothbrush is the best way, but there are oral care gels, dental wipes, and even a liquids you add directly to your pet's water bowl. Dental disease is very painful and pets suffer silently - Please help them fight this disease! My dog and cat fight over the toothpaste (yes they see this time as a special treat), so don't think this task is impossible.

Are you aware that animals can live 20 years or longer depending on the type and breed?
Are you aware that an animal shelter can euthanize upwards of 50 pets in a SINGLE DAY? Our local "NO KILL" shelter still euthanzed 349 pets last year. These are not safe places. Please never let the shelter be the last place your pet lives (we take any animal back if it is not working out).
Are you willing to allow a representative of FNS to visit your home?
