Obesity Management - Pouch

Obesity Management - Pouch

Obesity Management should be used to reduce body weight (weight loss) in overweight adult cats. 

 

Recommended for (indications):

  • Obesity 
  • Diabetes Mellitus (Type II)

Not recommended for (contraindications): 

  • Pregnancy
  • Lactation
  • Growth

 

Feeding Advice: Prior to prescribing, individual target weight should be determined. The energy allowance (kcal) per kg target bodyweight is based on the cat’s body condition score (BCS) however this is only an initial indication. The amount of food necessary to induce weight can vary between individuals, which is why close monitoring is required to regularly adapt the ration and ensure continued weight loss. If the cat refuses to eat or loses weight too rapidly, there is a risk of hepatic lipidosis.

Key Benefits:

  REDUCED ENERGY INTAKE  Decreases the energy intake 50-70% compared to the same volume of a standard wet food. 


    High Protein

HIGH PROTEIN The high protein content (>110 g/1000 kcal ME) helps to reduce loss of muscle mass by 30%. 


    Low Starch

LOW STARCH Reduced starch level results in lower blood glucose levels after eating.


    Joint Support

  BONE AND JOINT HEALTH Helps maintain healthy bones and joints by the inclusion of chondroitin sulphate and glucosamine, which is especially important in obese pets with reduced mobility and higher joint stress.
