Liquivite Liquid Cat Food

  • Wet » 395g Can £2.51

Description

Liquivite is a liquid food for cats which enables feeding of cats which cannot or will not take in solid food or drink liquids. It both rehydrates and feeds the cat, and can be fed via a syringe when the cat doesn't have an appetite

It includes various essential minerals and vitamins which are included at rates which are suitable for animals under stress. It contains a prebiotic to feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut, rosemary for its anti-oxidant properties and EPA and DHA which are an anti-inflammatory and boost the immune system.

Benefits

  • Levels of vitamins and minerals meet the requirements of the cat or dog when under stress conditions
  • The meats, eggs, milk and yeast provide a balanced amino acid profile in a readily assimilated peptide form. The yeast also contributes B vitamins content and is a source of nucleotides
  • Fish Oils provide omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, important to the immune system
  • The natural anti-oxidant has a two-fold role, firstly preserving the food against fat oxidation, and then once absorbed act in the animal's body to protect it against free radicals
  • The pre-biotic, Profeed, promotes the beneficial bacterial population of the intestine
  • Cereals, poorly utilised by dogs, and especially by cats, are not included in Liquivite
  • Of the copper inclusion, 30% is chelated, to make it more available to the animal.
  • Taurine is added, particularly important in perfecting eyesight in cats

Feeding guidelines

Amounts to feed reflect Liquivite's higher moisture content and its role in re-hydrating as well as feeding the sick cat or dog. For cats, introduce at 100g per kg of bodyweight; increase by 50% as appetite returns. For small breeds of dogs introduce at 100g per kg of bodyweight, for medium breeds at 80g, and for large breeds at 60g. Increase by 50% as appetite returns. These directions are given on the labels, as are amounts to feed the weaning kitten or puppy.

Shake can well before opening. Once opened, use within 24 hours, refrigerating any unused portion. Return to room temperature before feeding. Liquivite also freezes well, allowing its use over a period of time, for example where small daily amounts are needed for the weaning kitten or puppy. Freeze Liquivite in serving-sized amounts. When required, defrost and allow to return to room-temperature, stir well, and feed as normal.

Is it suitable for a cat with chronic kidney disease? He also has a phosphate binder called Ipakitine sprinkled on his food. Sometimes his appetite goes and he won't eat solids.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This is not the perfect food for cats with failing kidneys, but it is very much better than eating nothing at all. It can be used with Ipakitine for cats like yours. Ideally you should aim to get your cat onto one of the kidney support diets, such as Hills k/d cat food, but cats like this are often very fussy so it is difficult. The worst thing is to eat nothing at all, though they never eat very much.
