Unless you are taking advice from your vet, it is wise to remember that each animal is different and therefore any advice you get could be very subjective. For example, those who have an animal that may be shared between two homes may well be told that such a situation will confuse a pet and put it under undue amounts of stress. And yet, in reality, some pets actually benefit from such an approach and many shy animals have been brought out of their shells by seeing more of the world and being around new people.
The same can be said about pet food, and whilst some people may suggest that wet food is far better than dry food, both will have their place in a pet’s diet and it will be responding to their preferences and needs that will be important rather than assuming that one approach is better than the next. Instead, when it comes to food, so long as you are not offering them a great many treats or a great deal of human food and that you ensure the food you buy is high quality and nutritious, it will often not matter whether you ultimately choose to give them wet food, dry food or a mixture of the two.
As such, whilst it can help to listen to the experiences of others, don’t take anything as read until you have tried it for yourself (unless of course it may put your pet or it’s health in danger). Just as some people will say keeping a kitten as a house cat is cruel, other people will find that so long as they play with them lots, the cat is happier and healthier being kept indoors than it would be venturing out every day, and that they are far less likely to be hurt or killed too.
Therefore, it is wise to listen to your vet’s advice about health and safety, but the rest is likely to be up to you and understanding what your pet prefers.
