Product Information
Benefits
FOOD INTAKE CONTROL
Spaying or neutering leads to a change in hormone levels which causes a cat’s metabolism and energy requirements to decrease by up to 30%[1]. At the same time, spaying or neutering can cause an increase in appetite by up to 20%[2], which can lead to begging and unwanted behaviours. APPETITE CONTROL SPAYED/NEUTERED is formulated with an increased level of soluble and insoluble fibres, along with a ring-shaped, low-density kibble design to help create a feeling of fullness, which leaves a cat feeling satisfied, both during meals and between meals. 81% of owners who tested APPETITE CONTROL SPAYED/NEUTERED formulas on a cat with a tendency to beg for food were satisfied with the results[3].

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT FORMULA
A large number of spayed and neutered cats are overweight. Excess weight can contribute to a number of health problems and may even result in a shorter lifespan. APPETITE CONTROL SPAYED/NEUTERED helps to minimize the accumulation of excess fat through a high protein content and lower calories[4]. Supplemental L-carnitine (200 mg/kg min) helps to burn excess fat stores. An adapted feeding guide and ring-shaped, low-density kibble design ensure appropriate feeding amounts, contributing to a healthy body weight.

URINARY HEALTH
An adult cat is prone to developing lower urinary tract diseases including stones, crystals, and feline idiopathic cystitis. APPETITE CONTROL SPAYED/NEUTERED is formulated with an adapted mineral content to help promote lower urinary tract health.
