Ensure a healthy and nutritious diet for your feline.

Diet plays a crucial role in your cat's well-being and longevity. Balanced nutrition can contribute to a shiny coat, good dental health, and a strong immune system. Here are some essential points to know to ensure a healthy and nutritious diet for your feline.

Proteins :

  • Cats are obligate carnivores, which means that animal protein is essential to their diet. Meat, poultry and fish are high-quality protein sources for cats.

Essential Fatty Acids :

  • Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids contribute to healthy skin and coat, and are important to your cat's overall health.

Vitamins and Minerals :

  • Make sure your cat's diet contains a range of essential vitamins and minerals to support their immune system and maintain good bone health.

Hydration :

  • Water is a crucial part of a cat's diet. Encourage your cat to drink enough water and consider giving her wet food to supplement her water intake.

Avoid Toxic Foods :

  • Some common foods can be dangerous for cats, such as chocolate, onion, garlic and grapes. It is crucial to know and avoid these toxic foods.

Veterinary Consultation :

  • Consult your veterinarian for personalized recommendations on your cat's diet, especially if your cat has special dietary needs or health concerns.

Portion Control :

  • Overeating can lead to obesity, which is associated with many health problems. It is therefore important to respect the portion recommendations.

Variety in Moderation :

  • Although cats appreciate variety, it is best to present it in moderation to avoid digestive upset.
