At "Os med peteken" we collaborate with several vets in Denmark on the sale of disease diets for cats. We are solely responsible for communication and thus the actual sale of the feed. You should therefore ALWAYS consult your vet if your cat is ill and may need special food. There is a big difference in which type of disease diet is recommended, depending on the cat's condition.
We negotiate e.g. the following disease diets: Hill's Prescription Diet for cats and Specific for cats.
Food for sick cats
If your cat is sick; either chronic or acute, you should consider giving a disease diet as an alternative or supplement to the regular feed. What is recommended depends on the individual case, which is why you should consult your vet before ordering special food.
The disease diets are available in many different variants, depending on the disease, and it is composed so that it is easier to absorb and so that it has a nutritional content that alleviates the disease and any pain. With Uswithpets.dk you can e.g. buy food for cats with:
- Kidney diseases
- Liver diseases
- Food allergy
- Urinary tract problems
- Gastrointestinal diseases
Be aware that the feed may require a smooth transition from regular feed to avoid a bad stomach in the cat - even if disease diets are generally gentler on the stomach.
Sickness diet cannot stand alone
It is important to be aware that the disease diet can rarely stand alone in the treatment of disease in cats. Typically, it will be part of a course of treatment, where the cat must simultaneously receive medication or another form of treatment. The disease diet can also be consistent, but it can also be temporary if, for example, is a stomach virus where the cat may need special food for a period.
Pay attention to whether your cat eats his new food. Cats have taste preferences, and when you change food, it is therefore important to pay attention to whether your cat likes it. If this is not the case - and if it is not just a lack of appetite in connection with the disease - you can try a similar feed from another brand.
Treatment of overweight in cats
If your cat is overweight, sequelae can occur, which can mean both pain and shortening of the lifespan. Therefore, you should always treat your overweight cat. The treatment consists partly of fewer calories and partly of exercise. The fewer calories are best given in a diet for overweight cats, as your cat can then continue to eat the same amount and get the same feeling of fullness. Exercise is easiest through play, where the cat gets to move.
Your vet can determine whether your cat is overweight, but you can also typically assess it yourself by looking and feeling your cat.
