TROVET Intestinal | FRD for cats

Now also available as canned food

TROVET introduces the canned food variant of Intestinal | FRD for cats. This hypoallergenic dietary food is specially formulated for cats to support the gastrointestinal tract.

Gastrointestinal problems are common in cats. When the gastrointestinal problems are disease-related, dietary food can be used to support the health of the animal.

In case of a damaged intestinal wall, the intestinal surface area that can be utilised for the absorption of nutrients is decreased. A smaller intestinal surface area can partly be compensated by food that is highly digestible. Highly digestible food, however, is associated with a high passage rate through the gastrointestinal tract. In order to slow down the passage rate, insoluble fibres are added to Intestinal.

Stimulating the growth of “good bacteria” is vital when the cat has a disrupted intestinal flora. The growth of good bacteria can be stimulated by adding fermentable fibres to the diet.

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are added to Intestinal as a source of fermentable fibres. Addition of manno-oligosaccharides (MOS) is also favourable for the intestinal health.

Beta glucans affect the activation of immune cells. This results in a more effective neutralisation of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites in case of infection. The added fatty acids are able to downregulate inflammatory reactions, which is desirable in animals with an intestinal inflammation or atopy.

Intestinal | FRD is available in 500 g and 3 kg packaging and now also in 190g can. See the product page for more information.
