Customer Question

My cat is 14 years old and 3.5 kg. She had a tummy upset recently and vet recommended I/D Cat food and gave me a couple of cans, but I don't know how much to give her. She eats little and often and keeps yelling for more.

Dr. Dave :

Hello, and thanks for writing in.

Dr. Dave :

With her having an upset stomach, I would only give a small amount at a time, but more frequently than normal. So, I would recommend about 1 tablespoon at a time of the canned I/D food, but several times through the day/night, so it's easier on her stomach to digest.

Dr. Dave :

A cat Rosie's size can eat about 1 - 1&1/2 cans of I/D food per day total.
