How to feed a senior cat
A reduced physical activity as a result of aging or just as a lifestyle, could lead your pet into overweight or even obesity. Overweight cats may have more health problems and a shorter life expectancy. Often a cat's weight can be reduced simply by eliminating table scraps and treats from the diet and by avoiding high-energy cat foods. Diets with moderate to low energy but which still contains high-quality ingredients (specially a good source of protein) should be selected.
Always concerned about the well-being of your pet, 1st Choice recommend the use of its Super Premium fat-reduced, Less Active and Senior, Chicken formula, specially designed to meet the needs of less active, aging adult cats and/or slightly overweight adult cats. Because cats tend to be nibblers or "occasional” eaters, they should have access to their food for several hours each day. And as with other animals, an available source of clean, fresh water is important for virtually all body functions, such as digestion, absorption, circulation, transporting nutrients, building tissues and helping to regulate body temperature.
