How Much Dry Food Should I Feed My Cat? How much dry food your cat should eat depends on the age and health of your cat, how well-fed he or she is and whether he or she has a good diet already.
If you haven’t given a thought to how much dry food you will feed your cat, you should read this article as it will give you an insight how to judge how many calories your cat should be getting from his or her dry food.
If you have two kittens and one of them is still eating wet kibble then you should feed the other kitten with a little bit less dry food than the first kitten. If both kittens are still eating wet kibble, you should gradually increase the amount of dry food that you give them but not to the point of making them sick.
This will allow both kittens to get used to a certain amount of dry food consumption and they will be able to adjust their calorie intake accordingly in the future. If neither kitten is still eating dry food, you should reduce the amount gradually so that you don’t put the cat’s health at stake. The last thing you want is your cat being diagnosed with diabetes.
An ideal ratio for cats (which is the recommended one is 0.9 Calories per pound of body-weight) is about 0.953 or about six times the calories per gram of dry food.
If you have any questions about what is the ideal amount of dry food to feed your cat, you can contact your veterinarian. The calculator on the owner’s website will help you determine what this amount is. Your vet may be able to adjust this figure to better match the needs of your cat.
