Royal Canin – Light Weight Care
Royal Canin Feline Light 40 is specially blended to help your cat limit weight-gain, while providing all the nutritional requirements they need.
How it works
This food is a mix of hydrolysed proteins, healthy oils, fats, and fibres, which provide excellent nutritional value while limiting fat intake. Hydrolysed proteins are proteins which are already partially broken down in the food. This makes them very easy for your cat to digest and absorb. The blend of vegetable fibres works with the proteins to help keep your cat feeling satisfied and full. The mix is proven to reduce daily calorie intake by up to 17%, making it suitable if your cat needs to return to a healthier weight. L-carnitine is also included, which aids your cat in converting fatty acids into energy. Additionally, it contributes to lower overall cholesterol levels.

When to use it
If your cat is overweight, they could be at risk from many of the same health problems as humans. Diabetes, joint damage, and difficulties with organs are all possible outcomes. Your cat gains weight when they eat and produce more energy than they use. This energy is measured as calories. Additionally, neutered cats can suffer problems with weight gain, as the neutering alters a cat’s metabolism. This often means your cat will still have the same appetite, but their body actually needs less food. Keep an eye on your cat. If they seem to be a little lazier than normal, or make a loud noise when jumping off the sofa or bed, they could be overweight. You should be able to feel your cat’s ribs if you gently feel the torso. This is generally a sign your cat is at a healthy weight.
