Gastritis cat wet food
Food for the cat in case of gastritis must be very digestible and cooked by you (beef or chicken boiled in mousse without salt), baby foods are essential (I always bought the Hipp baby foods, they are gluten-free, without onion and with very little salt.
If you offer pet-food try ALWAYS to prefer the moist to the croquettes (inflam the gastric wall, even the medicated ones)
Follow the vet’s advice carefully and continue feeding your cat with very digestible food.
