Depends. When was the last time she saw a vet?

What is she missing by not eating wet foods?
If she is the rare cat that drinks lots of water, maybe not missing
much at all.

How is her fur? Is it dry? Shed a lot? Her eyes? Her teeth?
Is she active? How are her stools?

What are the foods that you are now giving?

I ask because it's kind of difficult to really give a good answer
without knowing much info.

Although it seems cats thrive on canned foods, should there not be
a reason to change?

I give my cat 1/2 and 1/2 and her fur sheds less and is less dry to the
touch.

I was using Science Diet Light which apparently was not enough as a dry
food.

I have seen other cats thrive on dry food but it's more risky,
especially for
males and urinary problems.
