How much dry cat food should I feed my cat if I feed them wet cat food too?

Most feeding guidelines for cat food will be based on only feeding your cat that particular food. However, the reality is that most people switch up cat food either because they feed their cat wet and dry food, or they like to provide variety or their cat is fussy!

We’ve researched the most common wet cat foods in the UK and provided a recommendation on how much Tippaws Dry Food you need to feed your cat based on you feeding your cat one portion of wet food a day. Below you can find how many calories are in a pouch of cat food or a tin of cat food. 

Adult cats require 40-45 calories per kilogram of healthy weight. 

It is important to note that the calculations are based on the calorie requirements of a cat, however just like humans, this is not the only determining factor for how much food a cat needs. Depending on their size, breed, growth stage and health, your cat may require more or less food than what is stated below. We recommend starting with our recommendation and monitoring your cat. Then adjusting up or down depending on their needs. As always, if you are unsure please consult with a vet or feline nutritionist. We hope you find our cat feeding guide for wet and dry food useful.

Notes:

If you have a kitten, please email us on help@tippaws.com and we'll provide tailored guidance.

We haven't considered how much wet food to feed a cat here because we assume most people will finish a tin or pouch rather than leave it open. 

If you are looking for how much dry food to feed a cat per day and you only feed them dry food, look at our dry food feeding guidelines. If you are looking for how much wet food to feed a cat per day and you only feed them wet food, please contact the wet food brand you use.
