TROVET introduces Intestinal | FRD

The TROVET assortment is expanded with Intestinal | FRD for adult cats. Intestinal is a complete, highly digestible, hypoallergenic dietary food for the support of the gastrointestinal tract. The product is available in 500g and 3 kg packaging.

Gastrointestinal problems are common in cats. When the gastrointestinal problems are disease-related, dietary food can be used to support the health of the animal.

In case of a damaged intestinal wall, the intestinal surface area that can be utilised for the absorption of nutrients is decreased. A smaller intestinal surface area can partly be compensated by food that is highly digestible. Highly digestible food, however, is associated with a high passage rate through the gastrointestinal tract. In order to slow down the passage rate, insoluble fibres are added to Intestinal.

Stimulating the growth of "good bacteria" is vital when the cat has a disrupted intestinal flora. The growth of good bacteria can be stimulated by adding fermentable fibres to the diet.

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are added to Intestinal as a source of fermentable fibres. Addition of manno-oligosaccharides (MOS) is also favourable for the intestinal health.

Beta glucans affect the activation of immune cells. This results in a more effective neutralisation of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites in case of infection.

The use of hydrolysed proteins in Intestinal results in less fermentation of undigested protein in the large intestine. Next to the positive effect on digestion, the hydrolysed proteins also have a very low allergenicity.

Intestinal is enriched with fish oil and krill oil, which are both rich in the fatty acids EPA and DHA. These fatty acids are able to downregulate inflammatory reactions, which is desirable in animals with an intestinal inflammation or atopy.
