How many calories are in a can of cat food?

My cat is on a restricted diet and I need to know how many calories she is taking in.


Answer by  PamelaK (264)

Each brand and flavor of cat food will be different based on ingredients. Most cans give required amounts and percentages of ingredients and vitamins and minerals. Calories are not included. Your best bet is to use special diet foods recommended by your vet.

In a can of cat food the amount of calories tends to range from the eighties to the 300's. However if your cat is on a restricted diet your best bet is to talk to the vet and have your vet tell you what your cat can and or cannot eat

It depends on the size of can and brand. Averagely a 5.5 oz. can contains from 100 (lite formula) up to 200 kilocalories. You should buy lite formula, then the cat can eat more and don't feel starved.

Cat food may or may not list caloric info, but that is apples and oranges. It depends on your cat's size, weight, age, activity. Consult a vet, and consider making your own cat's meals- you will need vitamin supplements, but in the long run, it is much cheaper and healthier.

Most five and one half ounce cans range from 140 to 200 calories. You'll want to call the pet food company to ask about the exact amount in your favorite brand. There are charts available on the Web.
