What is SPECIFIC Feline Special Care Weight Reduction dry food?

 

SPECIFIC Weight Reduction is a complete and balanced dry food for cats that are needing to lose weight. It contains high levels of Omega-3 fish oils to promote healthy coat, skin and joints.

 

Designed to allow cats to lose weight without leaving them still feeling hungry, this diet is low in fat and calories, but high in fibre and protein – this means that the cat’s appetite is satisfied by full portion sizes, while still helping them lose weight.

 

SPECIFIC Weight Reduction is high in protein to maintain muscle mass. This increases weight loss as the loss then comes from fat rather than lean muscle mass. With added L-carnitine, a fat burning amino acid, to further aid in weight loss.

 

SPECIFIC Weight Reduction is suitable for diabetic cats due to the use of starch and high level of fibre for slow glucose release. The high fibre content also makes this diet suitable for cats with constipation.

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: Be careful not to spoil the good work with treats (especially table scraps), and make sure everyone knows what you are doing!
