Dental problems: If your cat's eating habits change, remember oral and dental diseases are common in older cats and may affect their ability to eat properly. Even the best cat foods may not help under these circumstances. As your cat ages, periodic dental check-ups will maintain oral and dental health. If your cat has irreversible dental problems, such as tooth loss, a change from dry to canned or soft-moist food might be necessary.

Hi, I'm new on Cat Channel and I appreciate this article because it outlines the most important information for Senior Cats. I have 2 Senior Cats that have specific needs to maintain their health. I started feeding them Nutro Natural Choice for Seniors.
