Buying Pet Food

November 20, 2011

Pet Food in BowlWe have one cat who stays on a prescription food. Most of our cats are elderly, too. I realized after buying name brand, but less expensive dry food, that my older cats threw up a lot. They did not do this with more expensive food such as Purina One and other more expensive brands.


Purina One is on sale a good bit in our area and you can often find coupons on coupon websites for it. So, if your cat is throwing up a lot, it may be from fillers in the dry or wet food. My cats will throw up with Nine Lives canned food, too, and not Friskies canned food. I give my cats one tsp. of canned food and I leave a bowl of dry food out, at all times, since overeating dry food has not been a problem.
