Product description

Single protein dry food for cats aged 1+, with 75% poultry meat including 40% fresh meat, prebiotic FOS and MOS, optimal calcium/ phosphorus content, and Omega 3 & Omega 6 fatty acids

Cats’ behaviour and eating habits most closely resemble their larger cousins such as tigers, lions and leopards, and they are above all carnivorous by nature. If your cat lived in the wild, its nutrition would be made up of fresh, protein-rich meat with a low fat content. Optimanova Adult Chicken is a balanced, easily digestible dry food for adult cats, with a recipe that is adapted to the natural nutritional needs of cats.
Many cats have sensitivities towards certain types of meat in their diet, so to avoid any intolerances this kibble contains only healthy chicken as the single source of protein. This food is a Mono-Protein kibble. The 75% meat content ensures your cat has the optimal provision of quality protein. Optimanova’s high-tech manufacturing systems allow them to process fresh meat so that it is only heated once during the entire manufacturing process. This means that there is a lower denaturation of the protein, and maintains its first-class quality. The process also helps to conserve more nutrients and vitamins.
Around 40% of the meat content is fresh meat with 0% bone. 30% comes from dehydrated meat, which provides essential amino-acids, and 5% dehydrated liver. This ensures that the food is highly digestible.

Essential Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids can help to strengthen the immune system and protect against disease. They can also support the development of a healthy nervous system and circulation. Zinc helps to promote skin cell renewal and a shiny, healthy coat. FOS are prebiotics that act to protect the gut from the spread of harmful bacteria and also promote good bacteria, creating a balanced gut flora. MOS is another prebiotic that helps to eliminate bad bacteria and reduce their growth, whilst strengthening the efficiency of the body’s immune system. The essential amino-acid, taurine is especially important for cats, as their bodies do not generate enough of it, and yet it supports their sight and heart function and can help to prevent heart and stomach problems.

Adult cats often suffer from dental problems, so this food has been designed with an optimal combination of calcium and phosphorus, which, along with the cleaning through chewing, can help to reduce the formation of tartar and prevent decay from occurring. It can also reduce mouth odour.

  • For cats aged 1 year+
  • Mono-Protein: with easily digested poultry as the single protein source
  • Unique, high-tech yet gentle manufacturing process
  • 75% meat
  • 40% fresh meat: The up-to-the minute manufacturing process allows fresh meat to be processed by only heating it once, leading to a very low denaturisation of the proteins. This means that the protein content of the food is of excellent quality and vitamins and other nutrients are conserved. 0% bone.
  • 30% dehydrated meat: Protein-rich and high in essential amino acids which help to build the body’s own proteins and enzymes
  • 5% hydrolysed liver: Splitting the protein chains in liver makes it easy to digest, healthier and rich in proteins and vitamins
  • Wheat-free with easily digested rice: Rice is easy to digest and has a lower allergic potential than wheat
  • Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids: To help to strengthen the immune system and protect against diseases. Can also promote the health of the nervous system and circulation.
  • Healthy skin and coat: Zinc, Omega-3 and Omega-6 can help with skin renewal and promote a shiny coat
  • Prebiotics, FOS & MOS: FOS can help to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria and promote good bacteria in the gut – creating a balanced gut flora. MOS can help to rid the body of harmful bacteria, reduce their spread and increase the efficiency of the body’s own immune defences
  • Taurine-rich: Powerful amino-acid that cannot be produced in sufficient quantity by the cat’s own body. Can promote good eyesight and good heart function, as well as help to prevent heart problems and digestive issues
  • Citrus extracts: Contain powerful antioxidants that slow the ageing process and protect cells from attack by free radicals.
  • Dental health: Optimal Calcium & phosphorus balance to prevent and reduce tartar build up

great food cats can crunch
found a food that my cats can crunch because of the unique kibble that are hooped. as one of my cats swallows all dry food hole including the large dental ones! this is a godsend as he kept being sick when he gulped other dry food. Plus my other cat likes it too.

Loved by all our cats, especially the toothless one!
Our three cats eat a balance of wet and dry food, and this has become their favourite of the dry foods. In particular, it's the only dry food which suits our elderly cat who has no teeth! She can't chew them so they just go down the hatch in one gulp, but she loves them. Because of the shape of the biscuits (about 12mm in diameter and circular with a hole in the middle) she seems to be able to pick them up more easily, whereas a smaller kibble just falls out of her mouth. She also has kidney disease and a poor appetite (and won't eat special kidney diet foods) so these Optimanova biscuits are what we give her to keep her nourished, since she will always accept them even when she's refusing other foods. We have tried other flavours in the range, but the chicken one was definitely the favourite for all our cats. Not all of the flavours have the same kibble size/shape: some are slightly smaller without the hole in the middle. Not that that's a problem for most cats, but our toothless cat definitely finds these bigger ones easier to grip!

So good my cats stopped eating wet food
My two cats usually have a balance of wet and dry food. I got a small pack of this on a deal with zooplus and they loved it. Their coats felt softer and they began to shun the wet in favour of this. I will buy this again!

The only dry food my cat will eat!
My little Savannah can be so fussy with dry food and would rather meow all day to get wet food than eat it! Thankfully I found this product he loves it! He now eats less wet pouches which saves me money every week! Great product!!!
