Find out how to take care of your cats through nutrition.
Nowadays, life expectancy for domestic cats stands on average between 8 and 16 years, depending on where they live, their nutrition and, obviously, cares and attentions they get.
A cat who’s used to live only at home, for example, “will risk” less than another one who’s also used to go outside. This last, in fact, could more often fight with other animals or more easily get to roads and traffic. In the same way, a sterilized cat is generally less subjected to infections and diseases than a non-sterilized one.
Choose the right food
How can nutrition help cats to live longer? Healthy and balanced foods, prepared with quality ingredients and which provide cats with the amount of nutrients they need, are the first step for a long and enjoyable life.
Feeding your cat with foods which contain antioxidants like vitamins E, C and polyphenols is really important, in order to fight free radicals and slow down the aging process. Supplying the right amount of phosphorous and manganese promotes the health of urinary tract, while essential fatty acids Omega-6 and -3 together with vitamins A and D, help maintaining healthy skin and shining coat. Since digestive sensibility becomes more important in senior cats, a regular intake of FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) and MOS (mannan oligosaccharides) helps to protect intestinal flora.
Oasy Mature & Senior Chicken includes all the necessary ingredients to meet specific nutritional needs of mature and senior cats. Besides being a source of MOS and FOS prebiotics, glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate are also present, in order to maintain healthy joints and promote good mobility in senior cats.
