Had a cat that got sick & thought poisoned. Poison Control Center told me to give the cat "tuna water"... He lived a long life!! The 2 I have now love tuna & on occasion, I split a can between them, but if you look at the info on can, it's usually high sodium which I think would affect the kidneys. Everything in moderation and the dry foods (look at label) start ingredients with corn & chicken byproducts. This cannot be good! So, I am working some better proteins into their diets. It's harder because they tend to be finicky, but mixed with tuna water, on occasion, they are adjusting!
