Wet food versus dry food

As its name suggests, wet food is a food that contains a lot of moisture. The moisture content of wet food is between 70 and 80%, which is many times higher than that of dry food, which has a moisture content of around 10%. Feeding wet food has several advantages for cats, for instance wet food can be beneficial for cats with urinary tract problems or for fussy eaters.

Benefits of wet food for cats

Due to the high moisture content, the cans of Caviar for Cats contribute to better hydration of cats. Cats drink very little water by themselves. This is because the ancestors of our little four-legged friends often lived in dry areas, which is why felines' bodies are built to lose as little moisture as possible.
If you give your cat 1 or 2 cans of wet food every day, a large part of its fluid requirement is already covered by the high moisture content of the food.

Cats' low fluid intake also has a major drawback: it increases the likelihood of bladder stones forming. This is because bladder stones or stones can form more quickly in very concentrated urine. Supplementing your cat's daily menu with two cans of Caviar for Cats wet food will automatically ensure that your cat gets more fluids. In turn, this reduces the chances of bladder stones forming.
Note: although the cause is not yet fully understood, some cats are more susceptible to developing bladder stones than others. By feeding your cat wet food on a daily basis, you can reduce the risk of getting bladder stones or stones, however, this does not mean that a cat can no longer get bladder stones at all.

Finally, wet food is suitable for cats with sensitive or missing teeth. It is easier for these animals to eat soft wet food than hard/crispy cat food. Since Riverwood wet food is a complementary food, it is important to keep supplementing the cans of wet food with Riverwood's complete cat food. If your cat has sensitive teeth or is missing teeth, you can soak these kibbles in water for a while and then give them to your cat.

Wet food for fussy eaters

Cats are known to be fussy when it comes to food. Taste and texture of food are very important for these animals. Due to its artisanal preparation, Riverwood's wet food has a great taste and texture for cats. In addition, wet food has a stronger smell than kibble, for example, this strong smell can encourage cats to eat faster. If you have a fussy four-legged friend, try supplementing your cat's diet with a delicious can of Riverwood Caviar for Cats.

Fish from controlled fisheries

That Riverwood Caviar for Cats is a real complementary treat for cats is evident from the fact that each can contains no less than 51% tuna fillet. Tuna fillet that comes from sustainable and controlled fisheries. The other types of fish processed in the wet food, including salmon, sea bass, dolphinfish, are also sourced from sustainable and controlled fisheries.
Moreover, no drift nets are used when catching the tuna. This contributes to the safety of dolphins.

Besides the fact that the fish comes from sustainable fisheries, we at Riverwood have also paid attention to sustainable packaging. For instance, we deliberately chose an aluminium can which is completely recyclable!

A healthy diet has a positive impact on the well-being of cats. Healthy cat food has a high meat or fish content and does not contain large amounts of grains. In addition, healthy food contains no artificial additives such as fragrance, colour, or flavourings. Riverwood's food naturally meets these conditions. With us, you can choose from a varied range of cat food.

FAQ / Frequently asked questions
