Purina® Cat Chow® Naturals
My cat had a shedding problem but after I started feeding him Purina All Naturals, he doesn't shed nearly as much and his coat is much softer and shinier too.
Hi....Alyssa.. thanks for passing on that tidbit of information about cat food.
Having studied the product, there is nothing outstanding that points to the fact a cat's coat will be better if this product is eaten, other than it is a good quality product (except for the fact that is dry food). That is not to say that it does not have the effect that you state. What the veterinarian state is that omega-3 and omega-6 in a cat's diet help to promote a good coat which in turn, they say, might reduce shedding. Personally, I'm not convinced about the shedding bit of that advice but no doubt, too, omega-3 and omega-6 are good for a cat and their coat. Because it's good for their coat it does not mean that they will shed less. That is my thought.
In summer there is obviously more ambient light and the cat sheds. The converse happens during the winter months.
I wonder if your cat's reduced shedding is because of the lack of light during winter and not the Purina Cat Chow Naturals. I don't know but I am pleased that you are happy with this cat food.
