Description

Hills R/D available from VioVet

Hills prescription r/d feline diet is for the nutritional management of Obese or Overweight cats. It is important to feed a restricted amount of top quality food to cats which need to lose weight. Hills r/d will help as part of the weight control programme. It contains restricted calorie levels and additional fibre, yet is still highly palatable.
Being overweight can cause your cat discomfort, reduce energy levels and even shorten her life. Just as in people, weight gain is usually associated with excessive calorie and fat intake combined with a lack of exercise. Obesity can lead to such serious conditions as diabetes, heart disease, and others.

Feeding Guide

Dry

These ranges are a starting point only, because cats' needs vary. Adjust the feeding amount as necessary. To correct obesity, the amount to be fed should be based on the estimated ideal weight (target weight) and not the weight when obese.
