DR.J :

Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your problem

DR.J :

Congratulations on getting a new member to your family

DR.J :

since you are feeding her Felix wet food , you are supplementing her with high level of fluid just by eating the food which would make her to the untrained eye , not drinking at all

DR.J :

I would not get to worried about it . I would however recommend feeding hr something of a better quality as Felix does not rate high on my list of foods

DR.J :

I would advise moving daisy to high quality dry food such as Royal Canin/ Hills/Purina which you can get at your local pet shop or pets at home

DR.J :

This would be more beneficial for a number of reasons

DR.J :

1. High quality , means healthier cat and longevity

DR.J :

2. better when it comes to prevention of dental disease

DR.J :

3. will consume more water which would make you happy

DR.J :

4. you will end up saving money at the end of the day
