Cat Health and Nutrition: Extending Cats’ Lives and Quality of Life
Dr. Kurt Venator, chief medical officer at Purina talks on Steve Dale’s Pet World about cat nutrition and health.
Here’s what cats DO need: High quality and advanced nutrition – whatever food you choose.
Venator says cat nutrition is fundamental to cat health and well-being. This includes getting enough protein. And choosing a company with veterinary nutritionists and scientists who may be there for you should you have questions.
Even indoors only, cats need still to be cats. They are born with a prey drive, so offering the opportunity to hunt and pounce supports meeting their environmental needs, throughout their life times.
One example is the Indoor Hunting Feeder which resemble little mice that people can move around in different places. So the cats can “hunt” for their food, even indoors.
Purina Pro Plan Prime Prime Plus is cat nutrition, specifically for cats seven years and up. At around age seven, cats’ bodies begin to change. While those changes may not always be noticeable, they can affect different aspects of a cat’s overall health, including the immune system, digestive system, skin condition, lean muscle mass or body weight. In turn, it turns out these changes can impact longevity and quality of life. Delay those changes and many cats can live longer and healthier lives – which is what we all want.
