Product description

Dry food for sterilised cats aged 1+, single protein, with prebiotic FOS and MOS, 75% poultry meat including 40% fresh meat, L-carnitine rich with Omega 3 & Omega 6 fatty acids

Optimanova Sterilised is a balanced, calorie reduced, highly digestible dry kibble for adult cats. The recipe has been specially adapted to the natural nutritional needs of cats that tend towards being overweight. Neutered cats can often be overweight, due to the slowing of the metabolism caused by sterilisation.
The neutering process also causes an increase in appetite, by reducing the natural feeling of ‘fullness’ which cats naturally use to regulate their weight. Without careful control of portion size, a sterilised cat’s food consumption would increase by around 20%, whilst its energy needs fall by around 30%. This imbalance can naturally cause weight gain. Optimanova Sterilised has a reduced calorie and fat content and contains useful L-carnitine, which can help to transform fats into energy and reduce body fat deposits without reducing muscle mass. All of this helps to combat weight gain or promote weight loss. In addition, special nutrient combinations within the kibble can help to increase vitality and activity levels.

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. If your cat lived in the wild, its nutrition would be made up of fresh, protein-rich meat with a low fat content, similar to its larger carnivorous cousins such as tigers, lions and leopards. Optimanova Sterilised has a 75% meat content, the optimal provision of quality protein for your cat. Optimanova’s high-tech manufacturing systems allow fresh meat to be processed 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. It can also support the development of a healthy nervous system and healthy 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.

Optimanova Sterilised at a glance:
  • For adult cats aged 1 year +
  • Specially developed for neutered cats, to help with weight control or weight loss
  • 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 us to process fresh meat 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
  • Reduced Energy content & L-carnitine: L-carnitine can help to transform dietary fats into energy and can also help to reduce body fat without damaging muscle mass
  • 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.
  • Linoleic acid: An Omega-6 fatty acid that provides additional support for healthy skin and coat and also helps to support the central nervous system

Excellent kibble
I'm on by second bag of this now and I can safely say my 2 cats and I are converted. Bonnie and Clyde love this food and I'm hoping that my overweight boy Clyde will slowly start to loose his excess weight. My babies look a picture of health with bright eyes and lovely soft fur. It would be nice to have an fish flavour in light or sterilised versions to alternate with so my cats don't get bored with it 👍
