Weight control and feline well-being!

  • Marketing Picart

In the framework of World Animal Sterilisation Day (27 February), Picart would like to highlight the importance of an appropriate diet to prevent obesity in sterilised cats. Sterilisation, a fundamental practice for the control of the feline population and animal welfare, can trigger hormonal changes that increase the risk of overweight in our furry friends. According to data from the Association for the Prevention of Obesity in Pets, approximately 28% of cats in Spain are overweight, an alarming figure that negatively affects their quality of life. Sterilisation can contribute to this problem by decreasing physical activity and increasing the feline’s appetite.

To address this challenge, Picart offers a number of key recommendations:

  • Proper nutrition: It is essential to provide a specific diet for sterilised cats, low in energy, but rich in protein such as salmon, egg or trout. Products as Picart Select ADULT Chicken and Egg Sterilised Grain free offer a balanced and easy to digest option, promoting a healthy weight.
  • Personalised diet: Considering the individual needs of each cat is essential. Picart offers food with prebiotics, fibre and other key nutrients to ensure optimal nutrition and prevent health problems. Picart even has a special food for sterilised cats over 7 years.
  • Eating pleasure: Palatability is crucial to ensure that cats enjoy their food. Products such as Select ADULT Sensitive Salmon are designed to satisfy the most demanding palates and promote proper nutrition for your sterilised feline.
  • Portion control: Careful control of the amount of food consumed by cats is essential to prevent weight gain. Regular veterinary supervision and adjusting the diet as necessary is key.
  • Hydration: Ensuring that cats have access to clean, fresh water at all times is essential to their overall health and well-being.
  • Physical activity: Encouraging exercise through play and providing an environment enriched with toys and exploration aids in keeping cats active and healthy.

In summary, keeping a healthy weight in sterilised cats is critical to their long-term wellbeing. With a combination of proper nutrition, portion control and physical activity, we can ensure that our feline friends live long, healthy lives. At Picart we are committed to providing high quality products that meet the nutritional needs of our furry companions, promoting their overall well-being.
