Description

Hills M/D available from VioVet

Hills m/d diet for cats is Hills answer to the question about feeding significant amounts of carbohydrate to cats. Many vets and animal nutritionists feel that the appropriate diet for cats is high in protein and low in carbohydrate - much as a natural carnivore diet would be. Hills prescription diet feline m/d - is a low calorie, high fibre diet with the highest levels of L-Carnitine to more effectively reduce weight and increase muscle mass while keeping cats feeling full.

Feeding Guide

These ranges are a starting point only, because cats' needs vary.Adjust the feeding amount to maintain optimal body weight.

Additional information

  • Monitor insulin dosage closely. After changing to m/d™ Feline the requirements for insulin may decrease significantly. It is recommended that when switching to m/d™ Feline the effect of insulin should be monitored; initially the dose may need to be reduced by 25-50 %, especially if a cat has been receiving a high dose of insulin.
  • Do not allow obese cats to fast for more than 2 days.

Diet control food

Boomie Shodeinde

Which of your product would you recommend to control weight for my cat?

  • Non-Executive Director

I would suggest a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. Hills m/d might be appropriate or you could try one of the Orijen, Ziwi Peak or Acana products.

Ideally check with your vet before ordering any of the Hills prescription diets.

  • Non-Executive Director

We only have one flavour of this diet in a wet form. Others might be introduced in time, but for now you will have to stick to the one flavour. It is highly palatable and should be accepted well by your cat.
