Specific (VetXX) Veterinary Diet Weight Reduction helps to control weight in your adult cats. It consists of a low fat and high fibre content which makes it easier to manage a correct weight in a cat which tends to over eat. This highly palatable diet contains essential vitamins and minerals to help ensure that your cat is receiving a well balanced diet with the correct nutritional values.


  • Low energy for optional weight loss - The low content of fat and high content of fibre result in a low energy density. Even during a period of weight reduction this will enable the owner to feed a considerable amount of food, supporting that the cat’s appetite has been sated
  • Urine pH control - A urine pH below 6.4 supports a healthy urinary tract
  • Skin, coat & joint - Omega-3 fatty acids support healthy skin and coat. Omega-3 fatty acids also help to maintain normal mobility in joints of obese cats
  • Diabetes mellitus - The content of complex carbohydrates and the high level of fibre promote a gradual release of glucose from the diet, which makes it suitable for patients with diabetes mellitus
  • L-carnitine & high protein - The relatively high protein content ensures maintenance of muscles and ensures that the cat’s appetite is sated during the weight reduction period. L-carnitine transports fatty acids into the mitochondria and stimulates oxidation of fat and preservation of muscles

Feeding guidelines

During a weight reduction period, it is recommended to feed only 65% of the advised quantity of Specific FRD Weight Reduction for normal cats. If the cat does not lose weight, it may be necessary to further reduce the daily intake. In obese cats, fasting or too accelerated weight reduction should be avoided as this may cause hepatic lipidosis. The daily individual requirement may vary depending on factors such as breed, environment, season, activity etc. It is therefore advisable to continue monitoring condition and body weight, adjusting the amount fed accordingly. Ensure there is always fresh water available.

You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.
