Dry cat food is a popular choice for cat owners who are after a practical, cost effective way to nourish their cat. At Pet Circle, we stock a wide range of dry cat foods including grain free and natural options as well as air and freeze dried alternatives. We also stock those formulated for specific health conditions such as hairballs, sensitive stomachs, skin support, dental health, weight control and urinary issues.
The main benefits of dry cat food are its practicality and cost-effectiveness. Dry food can be stored more easily and for longer once opened. Due to its lower moisture content, it is also a safer alternative for cats who like to graze throughout the day, where the food might remain in the bowl for longer periods. Dry food is also more cost effective when compared to wet food, due to the ease of transport and storage. Another major benefit of dry food is its impact on a cat's dental health. The mechanical action of chewing through the kibble helps to scrape plaque from the tooth surface.
It can be difficult to know which cat food is best. Start with premium brands that contain higher quality ingredients and added ingredients for health support. While premium foods require more outlay initially than supermarket foods, the higher digestibility means that your cat has to eat less of them to meet their needs, and the added benefits will help them to thrive, not just survive.
We stock a range of top dry cat foods brands for different preferences and needs including:
Both dry and wet cat foods have benefits. While dry cat food tends to be more economical and easier to feed, wet cat food is generally more palatable and helpful for increasing a cats water intake.
Due to its lower moisture content, dry food contains more calories per mouthful than wet food. Each dry food varies in its caloric content, and feeding amounts are based on your cat's age, weight and body condition score. The feeding guidelines on the dry food packaging are an excellent place to start, and you can also check out our Pet Feeding Guide or chat with a Pet Circle Vet for more information.
Many cats thrive on premium, complete and balanced dry foods throughout their life. However, adding in a wet food regularly helps cats consume more water, which is beneficial for kidney and urinary health.
