Description

Specific (VetXX) FGD & FGW Senior is a highly digestible food which provides the older cat with all the nutrients required for a healthy life. With high quality protein, fat and carbohydrates, the diet ensures a maximum nutrient intake while reducing the faecal output. Vitamins A & E are added to support the antioxidant status and taurine is present to support the cats heart function and provide normal function of the myocardium. FGD & FGW also contains fructo-oligo-saccharides (FOS) and beet pulp to promote the growth of beneficial colonic bacteria to support a healthy gastrointestinal tract.

Benefits

  • Kidney protection - The controlled content of protein and the moderately reduced content phosphorus and sodium reduces the workload of the kidneys and support renal function in senior cats. The high biological value of the proteins supplies the cat with sufficient amount of essential amino acids
  • Skin, coat & joint support - EPA and DHA are both omega-3 fatty acids with a beneficial effect on the maintenance of healthy skin, coat and joints in senior cats. The increased EPA and DHA content can also have a beneficial effect on e.g. renal function, blood pressure, and blood lipids
  • Healthy urinary tract support - The moderately reduced level of protein and sodium, the increased level of potassium citrate and the pH around 6.6 discourage formation of calcium oxalate and support a healthy urinary tract. The RSS-value for struvite and calcium oxalate is < 1 and <2.5 respectively
  • Hairball control* - The increased level of fibre promotes the excretion of ingested hairs through the faeces and reduces the formation of hairballs
  • Odour control* - Yucca extract reduces the production of malodorous gasses and the smell of faeces
  • Intestinal support** - Psyllium husk is a gel-forming soluble fibre, which absorbs several times its weight in liquid and is known for its beneficial effect on the regulation of the gastrointestinal tract activity
