What is SPECIFIC Feline Special Care Food Allergen Management dry food?

 

SPECIFIC Food Allergen Management is a complete and balanced dry food for adult cats that suffer from food allergies. The limited number of ingredients and hydrolysed proteins make this diet less likely to cause allergic reactions.

 

The recipe is made with a limited number of ingredients including hydrolysed salmon and rice, which are less likely to trigger an allergic reaction.

 

The increased levels of Vitamins A, E and B complex, along with raised levels of Zinc and Selenium help to support and strengthen the skin. This provides greater protection against environmental allergens.

 

What is hydrolysation and how does this help with food allergies?

 

Hydrolysation is the process where protein molecules are cut into very small pieces. This makes them too small to trigger allergic reactions.

 

Who is this food suitable for?

 

This food is suitable for adult cats with food sensitivities and allergies.

 

SPECIFIC product code:  FDD-HY

Body Condition Score

 

Steps to ideal bodyweight

 

Weight check:  Get your cat's body condition checked and weighed.

 

Planning:  Work with your vet to decide what is the target weight. Choose a suitable food for your cat's needs, and then calculate the daily feeding amount.

 

Implement the feeding:  It’s important that you measure out the food so, if you need to you can easily and accurately adjust it.

 

Regularly weigh your cat:  A simple way to do this is weigh yourself, then weigh yourself while holding your cat then subtract the two numbers.

 

Be patient – It’s not going to happen overnight but if you stick with it your cat will reach their target weight, and it will all be worth it with a happier healthy cat.

 

Maintain weight:  Once you have reached target weight you need to make sure they stay there by choosing a suitable food for your cat's needs.

 

Remember: If your cat is on a diet, be careful not to spoil the good work with treats (especially table scraps), and make sure everyone knows what you are doing!
