I'm with you and your vet. I never thought about wet food. I think back and Oscar, our other kitty, lived to be almost 20 and he only ate wet food. No health problems at all.When Finley went through her bladder stone issues, my vet said she needed wet food supplemented with her dry food to help with the stones. He said it's important that cat's get a variety of raw foods in their diet. That made total sense to me. The cat I had growing up lived to be 20 years old because she mostly ate fish and liver and occasional bird and mouse. My dad would always cut up fish and liver for her when he was cleaning fish or deer and then put it in the freezer for a once a week snack for her. She would go nuts when it was on the counter thawing. She never had any health problems and basically died of old age. My next cat, which will hopefully be soon, will get wet food added into her diet as well as the raw fish and liver.
