餵食貓咪:了解貓咪所需的基本營養

 

Feeding Your Cat: Know the Basics of Feline Nutrition

作者:Lisa A. Pierson, DVM

 

飲食是健康的基石.

這個網頁列出了一些常常被忽視的貓咪營養準則,且解釋了為什麼相較於乾乾,餵食優質罐罐會讓貓咪比較健康.

Diet is the brick and mortar of health.

This web page lays out some often-ignored principles of feline nutrition and explains why cats have a better chance at optimal health if they are fed a quality canned food diet instead of dry kibble. 

思考你餵貓咪吃了什麼,可能會對他們的貓生有幫助,而且能夠避免那些嚴重,痛苦且傷荷包的疾病.

Putting a little thought into what you feed your cat(s) can pay big dividends over their lifetime and very possibly help them avoid serious, painful, and costly illnesses. 

越來越多的美國獸醫協會成員(包括獸醫內科)現在強力建議大家餵食罐罐,而非乾乾.

An increasing number of American Veterinary Medical Association members, including board-certified veterinary internists, are now strongly recommending the feeding of canned food instead of dry kibble.

乾乾所造成的三個負面影響:

The three key negative issues associated with dry food are:

1) 蛋白質類型-太多植物性的蛋白質 type of protein - too high in plant-based versus animal-based proteins

2) 碳水化合物含量太高 carbohydrate load is too high

3) 含水量太低 water content is too low
