Is Breed Specific Cat Food Necessary

It is not necessary to feed your cat a food specifically for their breed. However, breed-specific cat food is designed with common breed ailments in mind and works to prevent and combat these issues. So feeding a breed-specific food can help to keep your pure breed puss happy and healthy, therefore it is recommended as it is more closely tailored to your cat's specific needs.

However, we know cats can be fussy, so it may be a case of just getting them to eat! And so getting them to eat breed-specific food may not be possible. As long as you are feeding them a complete diet and ensuring they get all the vitamins and minerals they need, your cat will be fine on their cat food of choice. So don't worry if your pure breed won't eat the food designed for them.

What Cat Breed Specific Food is Available?

There are several breeds that you can find tailored food for. Many of these specific diets are available in wet and dry formulas, so whichever your cat prefers you can find a tailored food. Some typical issues that breed-specific cat food help to combat are:

Large Breed Issues

Large breeds like Maine Coons and Ragdolls can suffer from joint problems. This is because their large size and heavy bone structure can put extra pressure on the joints. Large breed foods such as breed-specific Maine Coon cat food contain EPA and DHA to support the joints. For additional support, you can give your large puss cat joint supplements too.

British Shorthair cats are also likely to develop joint issues as, although they are not as large as other large breeds, they are sturdy and muscular which can also strain the joints. Therefore, British Shorthair cat food also contains EPA and DHA to support joints.

Long Haired Breed Issues

Cat breeds with long hair can have a range of issues. It's important to keep their coat in top condition and help them to stay free of hairballs. Other breeds can have thick double coats, which can cause the same issues as long hair.

To combat these issues, breed-specific foods, such as Persian cat food, will be enriched with Omega Fatty Acids to promote skin and coat health. These foods will also target hairball reduction by including a specific blend of fibres that help to reduce the formation of hairballs.

For extra coat support, be sure to keep on top of your kitty's grooming routine. Check out our range of cat grooming products. And if your cat struggles with hairballs, we also stock a range of hairball remedies.

Flat Faced Breed Issues

Certain cat breeds have flatter faces than others, which can make eating normal-shaped kibble difficult. For instance, Persian cats tend to use the underside of their tongue to pick up kibble, due to the shape of their head and jaw. So the Persian cat food has almond-shaped kibble, which makes it easier for this breed to pick up.

Kibble can be a problem for many cats, so another option to ensure they don't struggle is to feed them a complete wet cat food.
