I don't know whether cats need wet (canned) food or not. My cats eat mostly dry, with once a day offering of 1 oz of wet food (old guy gets 2xday). It allows me to give meds without struggle (I mix them into food). They like the anticipation and love the food, at least the youngsters. I understand that in older cats, it can be another source of water since it's more than 70% water (old cats are sometimes mildly dehydrated). I'd ask your vet what he thinks and go with what you feel. Canned food is expensive(!) and stinky, so if I'd probably skip it if I could, but that's me!

good luck,
