Hello Sphynx Lovers,

I have finally been able to switch my baby from kibble to wet food, woohoo! However, I've been wondering what is the long term consequences of feeding her food that comes in an aluminum can. I was debating on switching to pouches, but I'm not sure of the long term effects of pouches either. Has anyone out there already done extensive research on the topic? I know that exposure to aluminum has long term effects for humans, and has been linked to Alzheimer. My goal for my cat is health, longevity, and a wonderful quality of life as long as possible. So for me, I'm not worried about price, ease of use, or other factors.

The good news is cats can't get Alzeimers, but they can get dementia which has no association with aluminum. I think your fine. We do feed both kibble and wet in out house hold with no issues. :)

@annaleemv , you can search for "BPA free canned cat food"
And/or call the companies directly and ask if their cans are BPA free?
this can also depend on the size of the can by the same manufacturer so worth asking
