SANIMED Senior is a complete food for senior cats.
If your cat has become a senior, it is important to maintain its physical condition and minimise loss of its functions as a consequence of aging. SANIMED Senior is a natural food and, like all other SANIMED foods, formulated to support a long and healthy feline life.
Thanks to high-quality raw materials, SANIMED Senior is optimally digestible. The food’s lower protein content reduces stress on liver and kidney.
- offers good support for the body in the senior stage
- relieves stress on liver and kidneys, due to its lower protein content
- helps to reduce the risk of common diseases
- for senior cats from 8 years onwards
SANIMED Senior is formulated to meet the nutritional demands of older cats of all breeds. The high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E in SANIMED Senior contribute to a long and healthy feline life.
Older cats share an increased risk of struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis. Reducing the risk of struvite formation is possible by inducing a low urinary pH and low concentrations of struvite forming components (magnesium, ammonium, phosphate). However, very low urinary pH values are undesirable because of the additional risk of the formation of calcium oxalate. For this reason SANIMED Senior lowers the urine pH to approx. 6.8. The food contains relatively low amounts of magnesium, phosphorus and protein in order to lower the concentrations of struvite creating components. Its low protein content, combined with a low calcium content, reduces the concentrations of calcium oxalate forming components.
Disorders of the urinary tract
Older cats, too, commonly develop disorders of the urinary tract caused by bladder stones. Besides struvite, many older cats also develop oxalate. Counteracting the formation of both kinds of bladder stones is possible by means of a low urinary acidity (pH) and low concentrations of struvite creating components (magnesium, ammonium, phosphate).
Kidney failure, next to bladder stones, is one of the most common issues in cats and occurs in 30% of cats over 15. SANIMED Senior contains a low level of protein in order to take stress off the kidneys. The low phosphorus and protein content and the high content in polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids supports the health of your cat’s kidneys.
The specific formulation of SANIMED Adult reduces the risk of common diseases. Determine by means of the nutrition plan how much food your young cat needs. That way you will maintain your cat’s ideal body condition. An ideal body condition reduces the risk of disease and prolongs the life of your cat.
