With their own food, a person is able to sort something out. But the cat will not say how suitable the food is, but the attentive owner is able to understand this.
A healthy cat is active and cheerful. She is neither fat nor thin , and does not suffer from unexplained digestive disorders. A healthy cat does not have “flowing” eyes, there are no redness and eczema on the skin, the hair is shiny, without dandruff. The happy owner of a healthy cat does not keep the phone number of the veterinarian in the most visible place and often does not even remember the name of the latter.
If the cat for no apparent reason began to gain weight or lost weight dramatically; or there were discharge from the eyes or ears, and there were scratches on the skin – this is a reason for a serious examination. And if all possible causes of ill health are excluded by the veterinarian, then you should think about changing the feed.
A common belief is that expensive food of a well-known brand can not cause deterioration of the animal’s health. But, alas….
Yes, a cheap product can’t contain quality ingredients. But you should not choose food for your favorite cat, based only on the price index. Expensive ingredients are not the only component of high-quality dry food. An important role is played by the ratio of nutrients, which preservatives are used by the manufacturer… Sometimes this happens: the food is good, the cat eats it well. But the condition of the skin and fur, the condition is not the best… Often the owner in search of “the best food” offers his pet more and more new brands – and the cat looks and feels worse and worse…
Why? Even the best food can simply not come up – hence the problems voiced above. Each medal has two sides. For example, a decrease in the “output”, i.e., the volume of the stool, is considered a sign of a more complete assimilation of food – in General, this is true, but do not forget that a decrease in the volume of the stool can provoke blockage and inflammation of the paraanal glands in a cat.
If you approach the cat’s diet wisely, you should study the information about the feed manufacturer and the country of manufacture. Small family companies have proven themselves well in the market of dry cat food – they are founded by real animal lovers, for whom the main capital is a good name of the company. One such company is the German firm “Bosch Tiernahrung”. It has existed for more than 50 years, and the quality control of ingredients and finished products on it is so high that it no longer needs advertising.
In Russia, sanabelle feed has been popular with professional breeders and ordinary cat owners for more than 9 years. And if you once chose “Sanabelle” for your cats, you will not be familiar with any interruptions in supplies, or abrupt changes in the composition of feed, sometimes negatively affecting the health of animals. Start with proper nutrition – and you will remember about a visit to the vet once a year, when the period of vaccination of the animal is suitable.
