My cat is overweight and has joint problems, what can I do best?
Cats with joint problems will suffer extra from this when they are overweight. This means it is recommended to let the patients lose weight. Sadly enough this is not always as easy. A joint problem will probably cause the animal to be less active, preventing weight loss. This can result in a vicious circle. A diet targeted at weight loss is TROVET Weight & Diabetic. This food has a low fat and energy content and contains extra fibres, which help prolongate satiety after a meal. This diet is enriched with extra vitamins and minerals, in order to meet the daily requirements, despite the reduced food intake.
At the same time as the diet, you can support the joint function of your cat with the help of a supplement. TROVET Mobility is a joint supporting supplement. This supplement contains all the necessary substances to support joint repair (glucosaminoglycans or GAGs), namely: glucosamine, chondroitin, keratin, heparin and dermatin sulfate.
They have the following effects:
• Slowing down the breakdown of cartilage,
• Stimulating the formation of cartilage,
• Binding of the fluid for resilient cartilage with the capacity of intercepting the pressure on the joints,
The glycosaminoglycans are supplied via natural materials (green lipped mussel, fish cartilage and abalone) and are not harmful to the body.
