Like people, cats are more prone to weight gain as they age. Weight gain occurs when more calories are consumed than what are used. The excess calories are converted to fat and stored under the skin, or around the vital organs (heart, kidney and liver).
Low glycemic index to provide a sustained energy release throughout the day
There are obvious problems associated with carrying excess body weight. By watching your cat's food and diet, it is possible to prevent these conditions from occurring, by minimising weight gain. CLINIVET Light Catfood has been formulated with a special blend of carbohydrates that have a low glycemic index. Foods with a low glycemic inex are broken down slowly, releasing glucose gradually into the bloodstream, thereby promoting the feeling of fullness for longer. A low glycemic index has also been proven to reduce the incidence of heart disease and improve the levels of 'good' cholesterol.
Reduced fat content to help control weight gain
Overweight cats require a reduced calorie, diet food to help prevent against weight gain. With a lower fat content than CLINIVET Adult Cat, CLINIVET Light Cat is the perfect diet food for the overweight cat. By feeding a diet food, your cat will still eat the same quantity of petfood (although will consume less calories) and yet not feel hungry immediately after mealtimes.
Rich in chicken to promote digestion and palatability
Rich in chicken, CLINIVET Light Cat is highly digestible and palatable, making it the perfect diet food for even the fussiest of cats. Each kibble is coated in fish and chicken flavours to maximise palatability.
