A Cat By Design Part 2

Has your cat lost weight recently? Is he drinking a lot more water than usual? And urinating more? Has her appetite changed? Is your cat eating much more lately, or a lot less? Does her breath smell fruity or like acetone? If you see these signs, it’s important to see your vet right away. Your cat may be diabetic. Any sudden change in your cat’s behavior or physical activity and appearance should of course signal that it is time to take her in for a physical.

Good cat food must include the right balance of protein, essential fats, minerals, vitamins and fibre to keep your cat in top condition. It is worth paying that little bit extra for a ‘name’ food as they have a reputation to protect.

The urine of older cats contains more plasma proteins but less uric acephalia, so it is less likely to leave stains on the carpet but its odor will be stronger.

I do it a little differently for outside irritants. The cats are on a leash when they go outside and I go with them. This way I can watch what they get into, where they go and make sure they are not bothered by chemicals that people spray on weeds or those pretty yellow flowers. If there is any breaking out from outdoor pollutants on there legs or other body parts, they are taken to the vet for steroid shots. If they have ingested anything while outside I also check that in case they would get sick from it and throw up of have respiratory or breathing problems from it.

Dry food – Cat food is made out of plant or animal products and it is intended for the consumption of cats. Dry food usually refers food that is preserved at room temperature comes in bags and is chewy in nature. Dry Best Cat Food for Weight Loss are free from bacteria and can be given to the cats at any time. You don’t need to do anything to prepare this type of food. No warming or cooking needed.

Going back to preparing homemade meals for cats I realized from my research that unless you are truly committed; and have plenty of spare time, it is very hard to do, if you are going to do it correctly.

Feline diabetes can be manageable with the correct diet and exercise. There are specific diabetic cat foods on the supermarket shelves these days. You do not have to buy the most expensive brand, but better quality food usually means a healthier cat and less visits to the vet. Speak to your vet about what is best for your diabetic cat.
