9 Best Cat Food Brands in Malaysia (Dry, Wet & Premium Cat Food)

When it comes to choosing the best cat food, you might feel overwhelmed at first as there are many types of cat food brands in Malaysia.

As a cat owner, you might be thinking: What is the best cat food for my cat? Is there any recommended cat foods from the vets? And what cat food brands are considered healthy?

In this post, we will answer all these questions and share some tips about the important cat food ingredients you must know.

Which is better: dry or wet cat food?

Dry cat food has a lower water content (<10%) while wet cat food has a much higher water content (>60%). Dry cat food is what many pet owners call “kibbles''. Wet cat food on the other hand, contains pieces of meat and is usually packed in a can or sealed pouch.

In general, dry cat food is cheaper and easier to store as compared to wet cat food. However, our feline friends usually prefer the taste of wet cat food due to its moist texture. Plus, wet cat food has a great source of nutrients as well!

It is generally recommended to feed your cat with dry cat food as a staple diet and provide wet cat food every few days as a treat. This way, you can ensure your cat receives the nutrients it needs while also not putting too much pressure on your wallet.

But do note that the cheaper option is not necessarily the best option for your cat! Here are some pros and cons between dry and wet cat foods:

Dry cat food

  • Relatively cheap
  • Convenient and easy to store
  • Can be left out for long periods of time
  • Less suitable for cats with low daily water intake

Wet cat food

  • More expensive
  • Easily perishable once opened
  • Delicious and will make your cats happy
  • Good source of water and nutrients

Now that we understand the differences, let’s get into the exciting part - top cat food brands in Malaysia! We have arranged the brands from budget-friendly cat food to top-tier premium cat food.

What cat food ingredients should I avoid?

Before buying your cat food, it’s always a good practice to read the label and stay clear of any potentially harmful ingredients. Some examples are:

  • Chemical preservatives, e.g. ethoxyquin, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) which may increase risks of cancer
  • Thickening agents, e.g. carrageenan which could potentially increase risks of cancer
  • Fillers, e.g. grain products (wheat, corn, oats) which may cause gastrointestinal upset

What nutrients does my cat need? And how should I choose the best cat food?

Here are some important nutrients that your cat needs:

  • Protein for energy and growth
  • Fats for energy and transporting nutrients
  • Fibre for better digestion
  • Minerals for bone formation and strengthening the immune system

Aside from ensuring your fur baby receives these nutrients, you also need to consider about the cat’s age and its lifestyle when it comes to choosing the most suitable cat food.

For instance, young kittens typically need more protein and fat than adult cats. Indoor cats on the other hand, which often move less, require less fats but should have more fibre intake.
