Self preparing food for your cat can be a daunting task. Usually the specific animal protein, the veterinarian prescribes, is difficult to obtain. The preparation of the food may be time consuming. Time is precious, leading to the self preparation of the diet to not always be ideal. In addition, some types of meat have an unpleasant smell during preparation. To aid with the self preparation of a diet, TROVET has developed a special product range: Unique Protein. To create an elimination diet you only need to add a carbohydrate source. The preferred carbohydrate sources are boiled white rice or potato. In addition, you should add a dietary supplement to prevent any vitamin and mineral deficiencies: TROVET Balance.
It is advised to consult a veterinarian before using this diet. Recommended period of use (in combination with rice or potatoes): 4 weeks. If the intolerance symptoms disappear, add TROVET Balance (vitamin and mineral mix) daily. In the absence of intolerance symptoms, Unique Protein (Horse) can be used for life, in combination with TROVET Balance and a carbohydrate source. Critically ill animals, growing animals, animals in the final stage of pregnancy and lactating animals require the addition of TROVET Balance from the initial use of Unique Protein.
Next to continuing the use of Unique Protein, it is also possible to choose for a complete TROVET hypoallergenic diet with a similar (animal) protein source.
