SANIMED Atopy/Sensitive is a complete dietetic food for cats, designed to reduce food allergy and to promote skin function in case of allergic dermatitis. SANIMED Atopy/Sensitive will soon be available under the new productname SANIMED Skin/Sensitive.
Indications for use
- Allergy to certain foods and food intolerance (exclusively hydrolyzed protein)
- Atopy (allergic dermatitis)
- Dermatitis caused by small insects
- Inflammatory bowel diseases
Environmental allergy (atopy) and flea allergy are the most common skin conditions in cats. Food allergies and food intolerance, infections and hormonal disorders can also be a cause of skin issues.
- helps prevent allergic reactions to food, thanks to the hydrolysed proteins
- helps reduce inflammations, skin redness and itching, thanks to its fish oil (5%) and borage oil (0.5%) content
- is formulated for the treatment of food hypersensitivity, atopy and flea allergy
- helps reduce signs and symptoms
Only one single source of animal protein
SANIMED Atopy/Sensitive dry food contains hydrolysed fish protein as the only source of animal protein.
Treatment of atopic dermatitis is aimed at suppressing chronic in ammatory skin reactions. Salmon oil is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and borage oil is rich in gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). The incorporation of EPA and GLA stimulates the synthesis of anti-inflammatory eicosanoids, thereby reducing the symptoms of skin inflammations.
Colitis and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
For the treatment of colitis and IBD in cats the use of hypoallergenic, highly digestible protein sources in
conjunction with EPA are recommended. The digestibility of hydrolysed protein also is very high – higher than that of intact proteins. This makes it very suitable for the treatment of gastrointestinal symptoms.
Supports prevention of struvite and oxalate
The average urine pH is 6.4. This pH value enhances the dissolution of struvite, as well as the prevention of its development. On top of that SANIMED Atopy/Sensitive is low in magnesium and contains relatively low amounts of phosphorus and protein. This means that it will stimulate anti-struvite effects. The risk of calcium oxalate urolithiasis is reduced because SANIMED Atopy/Sensitive is relatively poor in both calcium and glycine (which form the substrate for the synthesis of oxalate).
The nutrition plan below is an indication of the amount of food to be given. Nutrition plans are based on averages. For this reason always pay close attention to the condition of your cat and adapt the amount of food accordingly.
