For cats to compensate for poor digestion
Gastrointestinal disorders such as diarrhoea or varying stool consistency are common in cats. Dogs with gastrointestinal disorders do not usually produce well-formed stool, and frequent vomiting is also evident. Prins VitalCare Veterinary Diet Gastro-Intestinal Low fat is a complete diet for cats with gastrointestinal disorders. This dog food contains a lower fat and fibre content to support the digestion and to ensure an easily digestible food source. The diet is hypoallergenic, which means that it only contains salmon as an animal protein source to reduce the risk of hypersensitivity reactions, and it also contains additional ingredients for a balanced intestinal flora.

It would be preferable if you could get your cat used to the new diet in one go. If your cat needs more time to get used to the new diet, mix increasing amounts of the new food with the old food over a period of seven days until you have entirely switched to the new diet.
Warning: in some cases, transitioning to the new diet can result in a disturbance of the intestinal flora and the stool could look slightly different to how it normally looks. This is nothing serious and in most cases the stool will look normal again within three days
• Do not feed extras in addition to the new diet. Part of the daily diet can also be given as treats
• Preferably divide the daily ration over several small meals (at least three a day). The amount of nutrients given to your cat will then be spread out over the day.
• Feed your cat separately to prevent any other pets from stealing your cat’s food. If it is not possible to feed your cat separately, it is advisable to feed your cats the same diet. This will ensure that your cat only eats the hypoallergenic diet.
• Do not let your cat out (for the time being) to prevent it from eating other food outside.
• It is important that your family and friends know that your cat is being fed a special diet to prevent them from giving your cat treats in between meals.
• Use puzzle feeders or a food ball to make meals last longer.
Our specially composed diet feeds have been scientifically proven, and developed in collaboration with veterinarians, scientists and universities. They are completely safe for your pet, even when used for longer periods of time.
