The benefits of combined nutrition in the diet of adult cats
The average life span of a street cat is 6–7 years. A domestic cat is less susceptible to the effects of negative environmental factors that reduce its lifespan, and under favorable circumstances can live up to 20 years.
However, at the age of 7–8 years old, aging processes start in the body of a domestic cat, which lead to a significant deterioration in the quality of life and, as a result, a decrease in its duration.
The ability to assimilate food, in particular fat, fat-soluble vitamins and protein, is reduced;
Intestinal motility and resistance worsen;
The quality of feces is deteriorating;
Metabolism is disturbed and muscle mass is reduced;
The quality of the skin and coat decreases and the change of the claw cover is disrupted.
At this age, it is necessary to be especially attentive to the pet and not to forget about regular visits to the veterinarian to monitor health and carry out planned preventive measures. An important role in the prevention of premature aging is given to the nutrition of pets.
The diet should be characterized by a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids and Antioxidants, the optimal balance of macro- and micronutrients. PRO PLAN® ADULT 7+ dry food for cats over 7 years old with LONGEVIS® complex fully meets these requirements. It has been experimentally proven that the unique LONGEVIS® complex really prolongs the life of cats. The composition of the feed includes chicory root – a prebiotic supplement that normalizes intestinal motility and intestinal microflora. Easily digestible food nutrients provide the cat with enough calories to maintain daily activity and optimal body condition, and high palatability ensures excellent eatability. Additionally, the diet is enriched with taurine and vitamin E (in an increased amount compared to standard diets), which create a powerful antioxidant protection for aging cells in the cat’s body.
An important role in the issue of food intake is played by combined feeding. The use of wet food in the diet allows you to diversify your diet and thereby increase the appetite of cats that are selective in food, while wet provides the pet with moisture necessary for his body. Combined feeding favorably affects the health of the urinary system and the state of the digestive system. It is also important to remember that combined nutrition allows you to encourage a cat without using products “off the table”. In combination with PRO PLAN® ADULT 7+ dry food, it is best to use PRO PLAN® NUTRISAVOUR® ADULT wet food – its delicious pieces with turkey and lamb in jelly will not leave indifferent any cat, and an optimally balanced composition will contribute to the prevention of premature aging .
