As your cat ages, his or her nutritional needs change as well. Assisi Animal Health shares four nutrition tips to keep in mind to maintain good health in your elderly cat.
1. Ensure they have a proper diet. As your cat grows older, he or she will not digest fat and protein as well as during their younger years. Make sure the cat food is appropriate for your cat's age and current mobility.
2. Use portion control. As your cat gets older, you may want to feed him or her several times throughout the day, rather than one big meal. Work with your vet to determine the best senior cat food for your individual cat's needs.
3. Put them on a special diet if necessary. There are a number of reasons that your cat may require a special diet. For example, if your cat is constipated, he or she will need extra fiber. Or, if your cat has diabetes, he or she will need fewer carbohydrates. Kidney and heart disease also require different diets.
4. Give them supplements if needed. If your cat has arthritis, is not eating properly, or has digestive issues, you may want to supplement their diets. Antioxidants and/or glucosamine (for arthritis) may provide some level of comfort to your aging cat. Omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA or EPA can also be helpful. Always seek your veterinarian's advice to determine the best course of action for your cat
