Enhance Your Cat’s Health With a Well-Balanced Diet

August 1, 2015
Your calico cat Lucy is a furry perpetual motion machine. This three-year-old feline housemate hasn’t slowed down much since her kitten-hood days. She regularly chases your much-larger dog through the house; and she climbs the curtains for fun. For a change of pace, she torments her cat toys and chases a flitting laser wand around the room. Occasionally, she stops to recharge her batteries with a quick nap. To fuel this energetic lifestyle, Lucy consumes a high-quality diet that provides her with essential nutrients. Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cypress, TX vet, prescribed this tasty blend after providing your active girl with expert nutritional counseling.

Powerful Proteins

Lucy’s cells, tissues, and organs need regular supplies of top-notch protein. Animal-derived proteins such as chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, eggs, and fish make excellent choices.

Carbohydrates for Energy

Lucy’s impressive exercise routine helps her to maintain her trim little figure. Carbohydrates provide energy to her tissues, enabling her to keep up this demanding pace. Carbs also support a healthy reproductive cycle, although that’s less important since your cat has been spayed. Although experts haven’t established feline carb requirements, your companion needs a certain amount of glucose to support her brain and other vital organs.

Multifunctional Fats

Versatile fats perform several essential functions for Lucy’s body. Her cell structures depend on fats to maintain their integrity. Valuable fats insulate her organs against extreme heat or cold; and fats also protect these organs against injury. Most surprisingly, fats provide the densest form of energy, much more concentrated than proteins or carbs.

Minerals and Vitamins

Minerals provide your cat’s teeth and bone structures with integrity and strength. These essential nutrients also balance her body’s fluids and help to regulate her metabolism. Vitamins also chime in to maintain her smooth metabolic function.

Life-Critical Water

Lucy’s active body needs an unlimited flow of clean, fresh water daily. After all, water comprises 60 to 70 percent of her body weight. If she experiences a 10 percent reduction in her body’s water, she’ll become very sick. A 15 percent decrease in body water will likely lead to her death. Avoid this disastrous outcome by keeping your cat well hydrated. As Lucy progresses through her adult years and eventually becomes a feline senior citizen, Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cypress, TX vet, will change her diet accordingly.
