HOW TO SWITCH TO WYSONG URETIC FORMULA

In order to do a smooth transition to Wysong Uretic formula, give your cat about 10% of the new food mixed with the old food and slowly increase proportions to 100% in a 7-day period.
General intake guidelines are:

5 lb. cat: ¼ – ½ cup per day
10 lb. cat: ½ – ¾ cup per day
15 lb. cat: ½ – ¾ cup per day
20 lb. cat: ¾ – 1 cup per day

 

ANALYSIS OF FIRST 5 INGREDIENTS OF WYSONG URETIC FORMULA:

(2.0/5) Chicken: It contains water in muscles so it adds less proteins and more water. Good to complement with chicken meal. 2 stars

(5.0/5) Chicken Meal: High concentrated source of proteins because water has been extracted. Excellent for cats. 5 stars

(2.0/5) Fish Meal: Source of protein is not described. Low in fatty acids since oil has been pressed out. Generally not a good quality fish. 2 stars

(4.0/5) Turkey Meal: Meal means the meat has been processed, cooked and pulverized. 4 stars

(5.0/5) Peas: peas are excellent source of protein, fiber and carbohydrates. 5 stars

 

What are the Pros and Cons of Wysong Uretic Dry Cat Formula?

 

PROS

  • It helps to prevent urinary tract diseases
  • 36% min. guaranteed crude proteins and 16% min. guaranteed crude fats
  • Formula with a comprehensive spectrum of micronutrients and nutraceuticals
  • With essential amino-acid taurine to protect cat’s eyes and heart health
  • With omega-3, probiotics prebiotics, enzymes and antioxidants
  • Formula 100% free of artificial flavors or other artificial ingredients
  • It does not contain fillers or by-products
  • Made in USA
  • Good value for money
  • Formula cruelty free

 

CONS

  • It informs some of the 11 essential aminoacids cats need in the food’s nutritional analysis.
  • Tomato pomace might be too acidic for cats with very sensitive stomach
  • Fish meal does not describe type of fish and source
  • Formula might not replace some prescription urinary diets

 

CONCLUSION

Considering its 3 first ingredients Wysong Uretic Feline Dry Formula has an average rate of 3 stars. If we take down 1/2 of a star because the formula has a carbohydrate in its main 5 ingredients (peas), the rate it’s 2.5 stars.

Additionally, the formula contains taurine and methionine, which is excellent, but cats need more essential aminoacids, 11 in total.

Very important point you MUST consider: All dry cat foods are not sufficient for a healthy cat diet and they must be complemented with canned wet food and giving your cat plenty of water at all times. Your cat’s water intake must come from food and water.

Wysong Urecit Formula is a good cat food for a maintenance diet, but it does not inform in the food’s nutritional analysis the 11 essential aminoacids cats need.
