NLENDEIT

Weight & Diabetic | WRD

Complete dietary food for overweight / diabetic adult cats

Weight & Diabetic is formulated to help your cat during the weight loss process. It is a complete dietary food with a reduced fat and energy content. The increased fibre content ensures satiety after a meal. The protein content is increased to prevent muscle wasting during weight loss and the vitamin and mineral levels in the diet have been adjusted to still be sufficient when a smaller amount of food is given.

This diet can be given during the weight loss process of your cat, when your pet has permanent lower energy requirements, also after the weight loss period. This allows your cat to reach and maintain his or her ideal weight more easily. Weight & Diabetic can also be used in (non-chronic) constipation due to the different types of fibre that are present in this food. Due to the increased fibre content and the use of slow-release carbohydrates, this diet is also suitable for animals that have difficulty maintaining a stable blood sugar level.

Application advice

It is recommended that a veterinarian's opinion is sought before use. Use Weight & Diabetic until the desired body weight is reached.
