I have two cats that are on Science Diet Cd cat food. It is expensive, but it has helped. One cat is a female15 years old and the other is a male cat that is12 years old. I am looking for an alternative cat food that is cheaper and I can get easier. Any recommendations?
Good alternatives to Feline C/D
After several years on this food, we decided to give them a break from it (not to mention the expense from our bank account). We tried some other foods for about 6 months or so, such as Blue. They all were fine, but the waste had increased. It was all solid waste, but nonetheless, we had to scoop more than once a day. After about 6 months, we decided to go back to the Hill's Science Diet C/D dry cat food again. We noticed about 2 weeks or so after having them back on it that out of nine cats not one of them produced a solid bowel movement.
No other -non prescription commercial-diet does this for her
Several years ago I put all of our cats on the Hill's Science Diet C/D dry cat food after one cat developed a urinary blockage (We switched to regular clay litter from clumping too since our vet said some male cats can develop urinary blockages from the gel used in clumping litter...they ingest the dust when they groom themselves). We have always had issues with them throwing up this food, but we attributed that to maybe gorging themselves when they ate... We just weren't sure. The number one reason we liked this food is that there was always very little waste in the litter pan, which was nice.
:P I had no idea that you could by CD without a prescription.
