The Importance of Your Cat’s Digestive Health

The Importance of Your Cat’s Digestive Health

Digestive Health is the secret to helping your cat achieve a lifetime of wellbeing. Your cat's digestive health affects almost every aspect of their health and happiness.

  • Optimal Digestion & Nutrient Absorption
    • The healthy gut and good bacteria can take undigested elements of your cat’s food, like dietary fiber, and break it down smaller for better nutrient absorption. Then, more of the nutrients from your cat’s food can stay within your cat so you will see regular, healthy, and firm stools in the litter box.  
  • Immune Health
    • When your cat has a strong microbiome, it makes it more difficult for bad bacteria to stay and make your cat sick.  Having a healthy microbial balance is key to making sure their immune system functions at its best
  • Vitamin Production
    • The bacteria in the microbiome help produce vitamins B12, thiamine and riboflavin and Vitamin K, all supporting your cat’s health and wellbeing. 
  • Healthy Skin and Coat
    • A balanced microbiome helps protect against excessive inflammation or itchy skin. Keep their skin & coat healthy, lustrous, and soft. 
  • Vitality and Energy
    • With better nutrient absorption, cats can easily digest and absorb the high-quality nutrition they eat, for more energy.

Signs of Digestive Issues:

  Loose stools, diarrhea
– Vomiting
– Weight loss
– Less energy
– More hairballs
– Increased itching or other skin problems

If your cat seems to be suffering from digestive issues, contact your veterinarian. Make sure that there are no underlying health problems. Once the vet has ruled out any issues, you might want to switch to a better food brand that focuses on high quality nutrition as well as digestive health benefits. 

What to Look for in Cat Food to Support Digestive Health:

  • High-protein and meat-rich diet. You will want to see fresh meat as the first ingredient followed by concentrated meat proteins
  • Wholesome, natural ingredients formulated to be complete and balanced nutrition. 
  • Guaranteed levels of omega fatty acids and to support a healthy skin and coat.
  • Dietary fiber helps promote the overall health of the digestive system and supports the regular movement of food through the intestinal tract.
  • Prebiotics that acts as food for the good bacteria. It promotes growth of the pre-existing good bacteria.
