Cats

Feeding Your Cat

After many years of not recommending any particular dog food we now stock a range of foods made by Virbac which we genuinely believe offers the best nutrution for your cat.

VET COMPLEX - BABY CAT

A complete veterinary diet specifically formulated for all breeds of kittens- from weaning to neutering (or until one year old if un-neutered). Also suitable for all pregnant & lactating queens. Can be hydrated with tepid water to ease the transition from milk to a solid diet. Palatability guaranteed- replacement or money back scheme.

Kittens have intense needs for balanced growth particularly in terms of energy, protein and minerals. At this stage their digestive system is delicate and immune system immature. Baby Cat provides a precise balance of nutrients, minerals and vitamins to promote optimal development of teeth, bones, muscles, skin, brain and other important organs. Make sure that clean and fresh drinking water is available at all times.

High energy density - Ensures kittens consume sufficient to satisfy their needs, given their limited capacity for food intake. Provides the additional nutrition that pregnant or lactating queens require. 
High quality protein content - Provides vital nutrition during an intense period of bone and muscle growth. 
Low starch content - Aids digestive tolerance in kittens changing from milk to a solid diet. Meat based diet, rich in Essential Fatty Acids - Optimise development of the nervous system, promotes a robust immune system and contributes to a healthy skin and shiny coat. 
Balanced mineral content - Optimal nutrition for the growth of bones and formation of teeth.

Additional Nutritional Benefits Include:

  • DHA (Fish Oil): Aids brain development.
  • Yeast Beta-glucans: Supports health of the immune system.
  • Purified clay + Fructo-oligosaccharides: Assists digestion.

 

VET COMPLEX - JUNIOR CAT

A complete veterinary diet specifically formulated for all breeds of young cats still growing and after neutering (up to one year old). Also suitable for adult cats following orthopaedic surgery. Palatability guaranteed- replacement or money back scheme.

Neutering reduces energy needs and predisposes the young cat to excessive fat accumulation, even if they are still growing. Junior Cat provides balanced nutrition for the continued growth of young cats to ensure they have everything they need for development of the senses and body. Junior Cat has also been formulated to help prevent hairballs and optimise urinary health. Make sure that clean and fresh drinking water is available at all times.

Moderate energy density - Helps avoid excess fat accumulation. 
High quality protein - Assists development of the nervous system, retina and heart. 
Low starch content - Improves digestive tolerance. 
Rich in Essential Fatty Acids - Supports health of the immune system and positively contributes to skin condition and shiny coat. 
Precise fibre content - Stimulates good digestive transit (helping to prevent hairballs). 
Balanced mineral content - Promotes the growth of bones and the formulation of teeth.

Additional Nutritional Benefits Include:

  • L-Carnitine: Helps prevent excess fat accumulation.
  • Cynarin (Artichoke Extract) + DL-methionine: Dilutes the urine and reduces the risk of crystals.
  • Yeast Beta-glucans: Supports health of the immune system.

 

VET COMPLEX - NEUTERED ADULT CAT

A complete veterinary diet specifically formulated for all breeds of Adult Neutered Cats (1 to 10 years old), available in Salmon or Duck varieties. Also suitable for cats with fibre-responsive constipation or diabetes. Palatability guaranteed- replacement or money back scheme.

Whilst veterinary recommended, neutering predisposes adult cats to two risks: excess fat accumulation and lower urinary tract disease (Cystitis). Adult Cat is a low energy, high quality protein diet that helps prevent obesity and crystal formulation in the urinary tract, as well as keeping the digestive system and the skin in top condition. Make sure that clean and fresh drinking water is available at all times.

Rich in Essential Fatty Acids - Promotes a healthy skin and shiny coat.

VET COMPLEX - SENIOR CAT

A complete veterinary diet specifically formulated for neutered mature cats - 10+ years old. Also suitable for Nephrotic Syndrome (without chronic kidney failure). Palatability guaranteed- replacement or money back scheme.

Mature cats are often subject to a loss of appetite and may begin to lose weight and muscle mass, as cell ageing mechanisms intensify. Senior Cat is a relatively high energy food with premium quality protein to help maintain muscles without placing strain on the kidneys. Special extra ingredients help maintain alertness and vision while continuing to assist in the protection against lower urinary tract disease. Make sure that clean and fresh drinking water is available at all times.
