Bringing home a new cat can be both a stressful and exciting time for your family. The health of your furry friend should always be your top priority. Along with scheduling an appointment with a trusted Village West Vet in Chicago, it is important to choose quality food for a healthy diet. With so many cat food options available today, we understand that finding the right one seems daunting. Our Village West vets in Chicago know that every cat is unique, yet still have some very important general needs. We have created a list of 3 things to consider in order to narrow down your cat food choices.
Should you feed your cat wet or dry food or a mix of the two?
Not every form of food meets your ideal situation.
How old is your cat?
Kittens, adult and senior cats all have very different nutritional needs. Growing kittens need more calories while older cats will benefit from ingredients that support their joints; have a higher moisture content or lower protein.
Does your cat have any health issues?
If your cat has food sensitivities, weight issues or any number of other problems, a special diet may be needed. Talk with your most trusted Village West vet in Chicago to help address and deal with any potential health issues.

Dear Pet Parents,
We thank you for your continued support while we've been navigating this new season of life in the COVID-19 world. We know that you're eager to get back into the hospital to accompany your pets during their visits. Unfortunately, in order to protect all our pet parents and our staff, we are unable to open the hospital to visitors at this time. We are going to continue practicing social distancing as long as necessary to insure we can stay open for your pets when they need us most. We ask that you please be patient with our team, and remember that everything we do is with the best of intentions for you, your pets and our employees. We love serving the Village West Veterinary community, and hope to do so for a very long time to come.
Our appointments continue to fill up fast, so we suggest scheduling your appointments at least 2 to 4 weeks in advance, whenever possible. If your pet is sick and needs to been seen right away, please let us know as early in the day as possible. We appreciate your support.
