This is all very upsetting. I have 4 fabulous cats who are special diet food. Three of my boys have had crystals and are eating Royal Canin Urunary SO. They also get Natural Balance indoor kitty canned food daily. One of those four suffers from occasional constipation which I now treat with miralax. My other boy is overweight and now eats Purina OM weight management both canned and dry. he too has occasional constipation and now get daily miralax. This a all expensive and I really want to make certain the diets are healthy. I am very involved in the cat community working with my local shelter, a no kill rescue and an animal hospital. i also am a cat sitter for my employment. I want to have the best information for me, the people who adopt from the groups as well as my clients. Most of all I want my guys to have the best diet they can for long and healthy lives.

Water is an extremely important nutrient that contributes to overall health in every living creature. Couple this with the fact that cats do not have a very strong thirst drive when compared to other species, and you will understand why it is critical for them to ingest a water-rich diet. The cat’s lack of a strong thirst drive can lead to low-level, chronic dehydration when dry food makes up the bulk of their diet especially if they have any level of kidney insufficiency.
