What Temperature Should I Serve My Cat’s Wet Food?


I’m Dr. Clayton Greenway with healthcareforpets.com and we’re answering questions this morning that came into the website. This one is a nice simple one, it says my cat eats mostly wet food. He likes to have many tiny portions at every meal. [Dr. Greenway: Cats are interesting right they all have personalities] The rest I keep in the fridge, please let me know how to warm up the food. Should I put it in the microwave? Is there a waiting period necessary after? How long? Two minutes? Thank you for answering. So this is really simple I mean when you’re dealing with wet food, in order to not use up the whole can you gotta put it in the fridge so that there’s you know it doesn’t spoil and basically a lot of veterinarians will recommend feeding cats a combination of dry and wet. I’ve had cats before, I usually just stick to dry. Why? Because I don’t want to deal with cans and put it in the fridge and things like that but most vets would recommend a combination of the two. What you can do with wet food is once it’s in the fridge, it’s colder, it’s not going to be as nice for your cat to eat just like food for us so I tell people to put it on a little plate, zap it in the microwave literally for a couple seconds so maybe even five seconds will do it. You don’t want to make it too hot obviously or it will irritate the mouth but when you do that by heating it up just like our food it will bring out the aromas, the texture will be a lot better, and that’s all you got to do. You don’t have to have exactly a waiting period after, it’s just a matter of it being the right temperature and then you can feed it to your cat and it should taste a lot better. Nice simple question thanks for sending it in. I really appreciate it and keep those questions coming to healthcareforpets.com we’re dedicated to your pet’s health.
